Burt's Bees Bags!

I'd been wanting to try out Burt's Bees for a while, but not knowing where to start had delayed me a litte bit, then I spotted a post about Burt's Bees Grab Bags (I will put the link below). The bags are £20 from the Burt's Bees website and the blurb says you are guaranteed to get at least £55 pounds worth of stuff, obviously the risk is that you've no idea what stuff but unless there is something you really dislike from the range it's a pretty good deal.

The bag comes by first class post so you're likely to get it the very next day. And it is secured in a postage box (I was very excited to hear my postman complaining that he had a really heavy parcel for me this morning). In my little goody bag I got; 

Radiance Exfoliating Body Wash (350ml) x2
Radiance Body Lotion (175ml) x2
Lifeguard's Choice Weatherproofing Lip Balm x2
Rubarb Lip Shimmer x2
Watermelon Lip Shimmer

Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream (8.5g - half the size of the real one).
Radiance Exfoliating Body Wash (88ml) x2

Radiance Eye Cream (1.5g)
Beeswax & Banana Hand Cream (7g)

Bits 'n' Bobs:
Mini Nail File
Burt's Bees Lip Balm Tin (it didn't make it into the picture but it's a big yellow tin with a little red ribbon to hang it up, I'm presuming it used to be part of keepsake tin set?)

I did the maths (cause secretly everyone likes to know what a good deal they got) and just my fullsize products add up to £65.31 based on there full online price. As you can see I did get a fair amount of duplicates, but I actually don't think that's necesserily a bad thing, I quite like to have two lipglosses so I can keep one in my handbag at all times. Plus, I might make a little gift from the things I have two of and score some brownie points with a friend!

This is the link if you perhaps fancied grabbing one for yourself: Burt's Bees Grab Bag
And this is the post that first alerted me to them: Evelyn's Grab Bag (You can compare contents as we did get pretty different things).

PS: You did have to pay postage on the bags which was 3.95, but as postage on orders over £25 is free I decided I may as well pick something out that was more exciting to spend my money on than postage. So I've also got a brand new Natural Tinted Lip Balm in Hibiscus which technically only cost me £2. I'll do a review on it soon cos it look amazing (:
