Possibly my favourite item in my LLAM goodie bag is the Burt’s Bees sample set. Beautifully presented in a delicate organza bag were four products from the renowned brand.
Naturally Nourishing Milk & Honey Body Lotion: I was sceptical about trying this as I’m not usually a fan of body lotions — I find they can often be too heavy and sticky. However I was impressed with how quickly and easily this absorbed in to my skin, leaving it soft and delicately scented.
Coconut Foot Cream: When they’ve been bundled up in socks and boots all winter, feet tend to need a little extra attention around this time of year. This cream is ideal for when you want to restore and ready neglected feet.
Baby Bee Shampoo: This is aimed at the little ones but I still gave it a go! It has a light runny formula and would probably suit ladies with short fine hair. My long thick hair definitely needs something more intensive! I used it with my conditioner and although my hair was clean and shiny afterwards, I think my conditioner had been doing most of the work. Still it’s nicely scented and it’s also tear-free which is always a nice bonus!
Hand Salve: This seems to be something of a cult product and one that I always meant to try. I received a handbag-friendly 8.5 g (0.3 oz.) tin. You only need the smallest amount of this for it to be effective so I estimate that I’ll get up to fifteen applications out of this. It has a medicinal smell — quite like Vick’s VapoRub — and it takes a little while to sink in so it’s ideal to use this before bed or when you have a free morning/afternoon/evening…if ever you needed an excuse for a pampering session, this would be it!
