Recently my local shoppers drug mart was relocating and so they had a big sale on lotions, shampoos and a whole bunch of other things. I unfortunately found this out a little too late and the shelves were left with only a handful of items to choose from. HOWEVER! I picked up a Burt's Bees product: Milk & Honey Body Lotion. A 7 oz bottle of this luxurious cream apparently goes for around $15 but I got it for $1.99! STEAL RIGHT!?

So first of course the fragrance. It smells of vanilla bean swirled with hints of honey and just a touch of sweet mint. It is just SO lovely and fresh. It actually reminds me a lot of my Mint Angel body spray from Mad City Soap.

My skin just seems to drink up this creamy emulsion and a little really goes a long away. Also I find that it's fairly long lasting. After 8 hours my skin still smells sweet & feels soft and nourished. So this happens to be the first Burt's Bees product that I have owned well aside from their lip balm. I have to say I am pretty impressed. I don't think I would pay 15 dollars for a 7 oz bottle however I really want to try out their other products now!!

What have you tried from Burt's Bees? Would you recommend anything?


  1. Wow, $1.99?? That's a SUPER STEAL! Try their original lip balms if you want super soft lips. It's the only lip balm I use now (Carmex is another great brand, but the strong smell makes me feel self-conscious when I use it). Burt's Bees original lip balm has a nice minty smell.

  2. I do actually love their lip balm & also how it seems to last foreverrrr

  3. MMMM. Totally love Burts! ESPECIALLY when its on sale! Don't you love that!? :) Cute blog girl.
