Sweet as Honey with Burt's Bees*

As the 30th anniversary of Burt's Bees looms, I was contacted regarding trying out some of their products. I have used their beeswax lip balms in the past, but have never tried their face or body products.

When I was around 5, I split my lip open quite badly and had to have stitches and I now have a scar that runs from my nose to my lip. The place where the scar meets the top of my lip is very sensitive and always gets chapped in the cold and wind. (Which we get a lot of in Manchester). Chapped lips, however, are an absolute pet peeve of mine so I always have a lip balm of some sort to hand. I was already a huge fan of the beeswax lipbalm that comes in a tin, however, this tube 'lipstick' applicator  makes it so handy for popping in your bag and applying on the go without having to get your fingers sticky.

One thing that I love about the entire range of products is that they are made from natural ingredients and the company itself is incredibly committed to producing products in the most sustainable and environmentally friendly way possible. The products are formulated to sustain the skins equilibrium temperature, moisture and nutrients, so not only are the products produced responsibly, but they really do work too!

All the products contain honey, which gives them a gorgeous sweet smell. I am particularly fond of the milk and honey scent of the body lotion, as it leaves a fresh but succulent scent behind. The consistency of the body lotion is a gorgeous, thick cream. As soon as it soaks into the body your skin feels soft and nourished. However, a little bit really does go a long way and I learnt from my mistakes after applying far too much the first time and having to wait quite a while for the product to soak in!
