Burt's Bees Grab Bag

So on Saturday a friend posted on facebook that Burt's Bees were doing Grab Bags with £55 worth of products for £20 so how could I resist?

To top it off it arrived today (3 days later).

All I can say is Wow!  I'm impressed!  What a haul!

Here we have Honey & Orange Wax body lotion and Milk & Honey body lotion.  Edible doesn't even begin to describe!  Can't wait to try this out.

This seems to be a collection called Radiance.  I got an exfoliating body wash with royal jelly & jojoba beads, day cream with royal jelly and night cream with royal jelly,
Took me a minute or so to figure out the smell then I got it, rock shandy! Well the body wash and day cream do, not sure about the night cream, there's something else there but maybe it's just the formula.

Left: Super Shiny Grapefruit & Sugar beet Shampoo & Conditioner
Right: Peach & Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub and Soap Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream.

The Grapefruit & Sugar Beet stuff does have a mild grapefruit smell but it'll probably be better activated with water.

Peach & Willowbark is your bog standard peach sent, like a St Ives scrub.

Soap Bark & Chamomile has a fairly sweet smell, kind of reminds me of sweetie cigarettes.

At the top is a black wallet with yellow lining and a tiny mirror though I'm not really sure what it's all about.
A Rosemary Mint Shampoo Bar which as described has a minty herbal fragrance.  Having used Lush's shampoo bars before I look forward to comparing this though I hope I don't fall in live with it as it doesn't seem to be in their current line.
2 lip shimmers in Rhubarb & Watermelon.  Strange thing is they taste like mint, what the frack? I was looking forward to juicy sharp Rhubarb and super fresh Watermelon.  Nice colours but disappointed by the taste.

Finally Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme which wasn't actually in the Grab Bag, I in fact bought it to avoid postage costs.  It seems to be of the same scent as Lush's Lemony Flutter though a different texture, a definite winner me thinks

Overall I'm very pleased with my Grab bag, it's the perfect opportunity to try out new products (and there's still some available).
Must remember to keep an eye out for more offers like this =)
