Burt’s Bees Citrus Facial Scrub 36g

This is available from HQhair!

I’ve been using Burt’s Bees products for several years now and even though they have become more global they haven’t lost their ‘down home’ roots or their passion for the environment and ethical business practices. They regularly support community projects and work tirelessly on new packaging innovations to ease the stress on our natural resources.

ApplicationNot many cleansers come little glass pots these days but this one does and it makes you feel like you have a treasure from days gone by. When you twist open the metal lid the smell hits you, it’s not citrus but a nutmegy fruit cake smell. The scrub itself is pretty much solid in the jar so you need to wet you fingers a little to get some out. It’s not a harsh scrub I would say mild to moderate. It’s best to make some in a little paste before you put it on otherwise it will not move. I like to use this before I do a face masque as it exfoliates but doesn’t strip your skin. The small jar should last fairly long as you don’t need much to get a good wash. This would also travel well due to the size and doesn’t cost the earth.

Contains:

Sweet Almond Oil, Orange Oil, Nutmeg, Clove

Advantages

  • A little goes a long way
  • Scrummy smell makes you want to eat it
  • Gives a good scrub without being to harsh
  • Won’t break the bank

Disadvantages

  • A bit fiddly to get out of the jar
  • Glass jar might not be practical

Verdict

Burt and his bees are always winners in my book and this scrub is a lovely surprise.  If you care about the environment and want to look good at the same time then let Burt show you the way.

    I bought this from Debenhams for about £3 when I think it was being discontinued.

    I have checked on it again and have not found it on their website or in store.

    I still haven’t used it but I get through scrubs like a knife through butter come the winter so it will be getting fair usage soon enough, I’m sure.
