Burt's Bees

Christmas is a totally hectic time of year. All that present shopping and wrapping, eating delicious food, boozing, driving up and down the country visiting friends and family and general late night shenanigans can really take its toll on you!

When the girls and I were sent a wee pampering hamper from Burt's Bees last week we were all more than a little bit excited. We LOVE Burt's Bees and have used it lots over the last few years. Firm favourites of ours are the Baby Bee Multipurpose Ointment (it's like Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour cream for babies!) and the various lip balms they have (I won't use any other brand).

In our parcel was:

Baby Bee Multipurpose Ointment (YAY!)
Baby Bee Bubble Bath
Baby Bee Shampoo & Wash
Intense Hydration face mask
No less than four lip balms (I was very excited to try the ultra moisturising treatment)
Sensitive facial wipes
Peppermint foot lotion

The Baby Bee stuff is all absolutely divine, there's no denying it. Sensitive skin and eczema run in our family so I'm very careful about choosing products that don't contain parabens, phthalates or sulphates. Burt's Bees only use entirely natural ingredients like buttermilk, beeswax and coconut oil (don't get me started on how wonderful coconut oil is for EVERYTHING) and the fragrances are 100% natural too (yum!).

The grown up range is exactly the same and utterly luxurious to boot. None of the products caused my sensitive skin to flare up, and I'm most definitely addicted to the intense hydration face mask now - it left my face super soft and smooth. I'm going to blog about this separately as I'm so in love with it.

Another thing I love about Burt's Bees as a brand is their commitment to sustainability. Not only do they use ethically sourced, entirely natural (and eco-friendly) ingredients, they also use recycled and recyclable packaging which is very important to me.

SO. If you're looking for a lovely pampering gift for a new baby or a new mum (they do some wonderful Mama Bee products, which I used whilst preggers with Evie - the Belly Butter is a maternity must have), or you have some stocking fillers to buy this Christmas then TA DAH! Look no further.

We heart Burt's Bees! xoxo
