Burt's Bees Bee-utiful Treats

Today's post is on a little set I received for Christmas. I have to admit I had actually forgot all about it and found it in my draw on the weekend. The set in question is Burt's Bees Bee-utiful Treats.
This set retails at around £5 and here's what Burt's Bees say,
'This season’s perfect pair, our Bee-utiful Treats will leave your lips loved and hands happy. Treat someone to a box of beauty with our hydrating hand salve with our classic Beeswax balm. Maybe even you.'

It was such a nice little set to receive as I do like a Burt's Bees lip balm and I was excited to try the hand salve. You can see me mention the lip balm here.
Onto the Hand Salve, now I have never tried or seen this before, here what Burt's Bees say,
'Need some salvation for rough, dry hands? Our most intensive hand treatment, this formula is packed with botanical oils, herbs and beeswax to moisturise hard-working, rough, dry hands. It's an everyday miracle.'

In the tin it looks like a lipbalm, even the consistency is a little like a lipbalm. You are suppose to take a little bit and rub it into your hands. I do find that it takes a little bit of work to do and as it begins to warm up it seems to melt in better. It tends to leave a greasy feel to your hands for a little bit after as its a lot thicker than a cream.

The other thing that I know not everyone would like is the smell. Now I am a fan of Burt's Bees smells, but I like the minty herbal aroma. But I know this isn't everyone's taste. If you are not a fan of this sort of scent then you my find this off putting as it does have a strong aroma.

This is not something I would use everyday but its certainly good to pop on when your hands are suffering. I have used it at night and in the morning I have noticed a difference. I have also been popping it onto my dry elbows which is working a treat.

Have you tried the hand salve?

I have both of these products that I got in a set a few years ago. I figure as they are balms, they're going to take a lifetime to go off and so are fine to keep using. However, I was never sure how to use the hand balm to maximise the benefits really. My hands don't really suffer from dryness all that much, BUT I think I will try applying this before bed. I'm hoping, that if there is a notable improvement in my hands, then I can just adjust my routine accordingly.
Thanks for the review!

Hi Steph, let me know how you get on. It certainly not a product I can use during the day, night time is better.
