Burts Bees Heritage Collection Part One

When I was asked to review this Burts Bees set I was so excited. This is a brand that I love and have spent quite a lot of money in the past on for both myself and as gifts for family and friends. Burts Bees is also a brand that beauty bloggers rave about.

According to Burts Bees: "Our Heritage Collection is a bundle of our classic products that have become bestsellers over the years".

Of course all their products are organic and 100% natural which is fantastic too!

The Heritage collection comes in a very nice and sturdy cardboard box and looks really quite impressive. I had to practically steal it back from my Mother In Law.

Inside you can see that all the products are arranged really nicely. So what do you get I hear you ask?

•Beeswax Lip Balm (tin)
•Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream
•Hand Salve
•Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme
•Peppermint Foot Lotion
•Coconut Foot Creme (mini)

Because of all the amazingness this box contains I've split my review into two parts.

The first thing I noticed when I opened the box the smell of peppermint that has infused into it. This was from the Foot Lotion.

 You get a 100ml tube which I thought was very generous (although all the products this set are large and would last for a long time even with continual use). As I said the smell of peppermint is pretty intense but I like strong smelling products. I think that is smelt quite refreshing and perfect for the colder weather. The lotion soaks in quickly and doesn't leave your feet feeling greasy. I find that a little goes a long way with this product and you really don't need to use too much!  This is  just a great pamper product!

I already own the Banana hand cream so was excited to see the Almond and Milk version in this set. This cream is very thick and rich. I find it can be a bit oily and greasy (from the Beeswax) for use in the day but I slather some of this one before bed to give my hands an extra boost of moisture. When I wake up my hands are lovely and soft!

Finally, the Coconut Foot Cream. The scent of coconut is really yummy, this stuff really does smell good enough to eat. I find this one is a bit more hydrating than the Peppermint version and feels really nourishing. Again I apply this product in the evening before going to bed to allow it to soak in completely.

I am really impressed with this set so far and will have the rest of the products for you later in part two. You can buy this set along with lots of other bits from Chemists Direct.

 The inclusion of this graphic means that the product above was sent to me for review. All opinions are honest and all information is correct at the time of writing.
