CLOSED: REVIEW/GIVEAWAY: Burt’s Bees Products ($150 Gift Basket)

Spread the love

I’ve got a great Mother’s Day gift idea for you!
Lotions and Creams make great gifts for moms as they often don’t have a chance to pamper themselves.

Burt’s Bees creates natural personal care products from bee by-products. Even the packaging is good for the environment – most of it is made from recyclable materials. You can read more about Burt’s Bees if you are interested.

I first tried Burt’s Bees when I was a teenager and my mother purchased some. She LOVES Burt’s Bees. So when I was offered some products from Burt’s Bees to try out I said sure!

I was sent some Cocoa and Cupuacu Butters Body Lotion (right) and Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil (left) to try on myself. In general I’m not a big Pomegranate fan but I do like the smell and taste of the lip balm. It came in handy when I was in the hospital after having my baby as my lips were very dry.

The lotion smells DIVINE. I could just smell it all day long. It smells like coconut and chocolate to me although there is no coconut in it. Cupuacu must smell similar to coconut.

I also received three products from the Baby Bee line for babies! My new baby Liam tried them out.  We tried out Baby Bee Nourishing Lotion in Original and Fragrance Free (right) plus Baby Bee Diaper Ointment With Vitamin E (left.) (Note: photos not to scale – lotion is 6 oz while diaper ointment is only 2 oz)

The lotions are great for sensitive baby skin. The original is 100% natural while the Fragrance Free is 99.0% natural. I much prefer the fragrance free. It feels much smoother than other baby lotions.

The diaper ointment confused me at first. I couldn’t figure out if it was to treat diaper rash or to prevent it at first. I assumed it was to treat but it was clear and runny like my barrier cream (from another company), not thick and white like the rash ointments. The tube says on the back:

“This diaper ointment nourishes and reconditions skin while creating an emollient layer to seal out wetness. Baby’s skin is left healthy, moisturized and soft.” 

So I guess it does both. My newborn baby was starting to get a diaper rash from pooping so often in the middle of the night and not waking up to be changed. I healed the rash just before I received my samples so I used the Burt’s Bees diaper ointment before bed and in the middle of the night to protect his bum and it worked. No more rashes. It made the diaper area really easy to clean too.

Winner – Suzanne. You’ve been sent an email but contact me if you don’t get it soon.

Thanks to the company, I can offer a $150 Assorted Gift Basket of Burt’s Bees Products to one lucky Canadian winner.Burt’s Bees will ship the product directly to the winner. It will be an assortment of Burt’s Bees Products to be determined by the company but will total $150 in retail price.
