Another Boots haul **inc Burt's Bees**

Hello Darlings

 Guess what?
I have been to Boots again!
 Here are the lovely things that tempted me this week

This is a beautifully smooth and gorgeously scented cream that glides on with ease.
I like to put this on my pins after de-fuzzing them and it leaves them super silky with a  healthy looking glow.At only £7.95, although if you head over to Boots right now ( go, run to Boots!) its only £5.30 , Bargain eh? I actually prefer this to the Body Shop version which is also almost double the price, ouch!
I give this a 4/5
What you cant see from the picture is that its also fairtrade.

This is a whopper of a product, it's 400ml.
This is a thick sugary paste that smells, and looks, edible. Its reminds me of cookie dough?!
You really don't need to use much of this product for it to have a huge effect. I bought this to transform my slightly troublesome thighs, and it is actually working! I only use a dollop around the size of a 50p, per thigh and after a few uses I'm looking smoother,less dimply and,most importantly,more confident!
This retails at £7.95 also but is currently selling at £5.30, just like its buttery counterpart.
I LOVE this product

This was a very naughty and indulgent purchase but boy am 
I glad I bought it!
As a Burt's Bees virgin I have been reading review after review on each of these lovely gems and decided now was the time to pop that cherry. Sorry if that sounded a little vile!
I have only used a few of the products in this box so far (I did buy it less that 24 hrs ago though, so forgive me) so I will just give a quick description of each product

1.Almond Milk beeswax hand cream
really do not like the smell of this as it reminds me of marzipan (yuk)
but I did give it a little go and I do see what all the hype is about

2 replenishing lip balm with pomegranate oil
A-MAZING! It glides on and although its got a red colourant in it,it doesn't tint your pout. It smells lovely and feels super soft and I couldn't stop smacking my lips together!

 3 thoroughly therapeutic honey and grapeseed oil hand cream
this is more of a lotion but only really in comparison to the other creams as they are so darn thick! This is great travel product as its a great size. Its smells very honey-y

4 coconut foot cream
Strange consistency, like a very thick syrup. Strong coconut scent, but not overpowering. I am looking forward to using this on my tired tootsies.

5 hand salve
This seems like a great hand balm, it smells very natural and like it will be good for you ( you know what I mean, yeah?!) I think i'll keep this in my bag as my hands can get quite dry during the day

6 lemon butter cuticle cream
"This smells like lemon meringue pie" as my OH ( other half) said, when I wafted it under his nose! I have very high expectations of this product. I'll let you know how I get on.
I wont give a rating as I haven't really tried it.

As a little tester kit this is a great way to try our the products at a snip of the price £12.99, this is also on 3for2,winner!

This is the product that I would choose in a " if you were on a desert island and could only take one item" situation. I smells divine, I personally think that there aren't enough banana scented things in the world!
This is a very thick and luxurious cream that contains beeswax to keep your mits all soft and protected against the elements. They recommend that you use is after washing your hands as it really does lock in moisture.
At £9.99 it is quite steep but I assure you its worth it. Its also on 3for2 in Boots right now,just incase you needed another reason to justify this purchase.

Have any of you tried any of these products? Or can you recommend any alternatives?

Rightio, I must dash as I'm off to Brighton with my Daddio
 Have a lovely day Darlings.
 Love, Pins. X

  2. I've never used Burt Bees, but like you, heard loaaaads about it. Definitely want to try some. And I agree, there's not many banana scented things around! x

    1. The little kit is definitely the best way to try out the products. I love Banana scented things, mmmmm!
