Review on Burt's Bees Classic Tin Quartet



 Widget: Two photos with my Burt's Bee Tins

The four 0.30oz introductory tins retails for $8.95 and they make excellent gifts. The collection includes the follow items:
  • 1 Beeswax Lip Balm Tin
  • 1 Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream
  • 1 Hand Salve
  • 1 Res-Q Ointment
My family and I are big fans for Burt's Bees because their formulas are natural and  Earth-friendly. My brother and I especially love the Beeswax Lip Balm. The lip balm smells like freshly grounded peppermint. We discovered the lip balm when we were on Accutane/Clarus. It is a miracle lip balm since it relieved us from our sore, cracked, and dry lips.  Once the product is applied your will lips feel tingly and cool.  The formula is soothing and provides long-lasting hydration. This is a classic lip balm that we have in the car, bathroom, computer desk, etc. Bottom line: we can't live without it and highly recommend this product to friends and family.

The Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream smells like creamy homemade lemon meringue pie. And the Hand Salve smells "herbally". Both products are thick, nourishing, and quickly sinks into the skin. The formulas not waxy or greasy and provides enriched moisture for the cuticle, nails, and hands. The Res-Q Ointment is my mom's all time favorite product. It promotes faster healing for minor burns, cuts and other "ouchies".

The tins are designed to fit just about anywhere such as in pockets and purses. Also they are convenient to carry with you when traveling. However the tins aren't perfect. The tins are extremely difficult to open. My tip is to use a large rubber band (for grip) and wrap it on the lid then twist. Good luck; you'll need it.
Final Grade: A-

Hand Salve makes my hands feel cool and tingly too. Perhaps I have sensitive skin?!
