Burt's Bees Mystery Bag

Guuuyss, I'm so exciteeed :) One thing you have to know about me to understand why I feel like this right now, is that I adore surprises. So, when I read blog posts on Burt's Bees Mystery Bag I plunged into buying it immediately. Basically, you pay £20 for a £55 value product bag but you don't know what you get and how many products they put in there. On Friday, I made the order and yesterday I got it at my door.

Burt's Bees is a brand that I always wanted to try, but somehow didn't ever get anything. Mainly, because of the price, I thought why buy a £10 body wash when I have the loved Body Shop ones at £4 or less(on offer).
But I thought this Mystery Bag was a good deal and an opportunity to try some new products.

Let's see what I got?
It first came into a regular cardboard box and inside, everything was put in this cute paper bag.
 That's everything I got for £20 (except the lemon round pot-that was an additional product I got for £5.99 to get a free delivery).
 I got 2 full sized (on the website each is £9.99) and 2 mini exfoliating body washes. I know 4 of the same product isn't that exciting but hey, I can use some radiance for summer.
What Burt's Bees say about the product: Bring your radiance to the surface. This creamy body wash infuses Royal Jelly, one of nature's most nutritious substances, with jojoba beads and a fruit acid complex to gently exfoliate, smooth and help even skin tone. Safflower seed olesomes intensely moisturise and condition, leaving skin with a naturally healthy, radiant glow. Go ahead, reveal your radiance.
I also got 2 full sized Body Lotions(each £9.99)
What Burt's Bees say: Bring your radiance to the surface. This natural body lotion is specially created to enhance your skin's natural glow. It's formulated with Royal Jelly, one of nature’s most nourishing substances, packed with 134 nutrients, including 17 amino acids, and vitamins A, C, D and K, as well as multiple B-vitamins. Sunflower oil moisturises and mica, a light reflecting mineral, enhances your skin's natural glow. The result is soft, shimmering skin you'll love.
 2 testers-eye cream and day cream for the face
 3 lip shimmers-1 in watermelon and 2 in rhubarb(each £5.99) A kiss of colour and pearlised shine add a hint of glamour to our world famous lip balm. Condition, smooth & highlight your lips with our wonderful selection of twelve shimmering shades. Luminescent earth pigments add a hint of colour to our natural beeswax lip balm to give your lips the lift they need. Nourish and moisturise your lips with natural ingredients like vitamin E and coconut and sunflower oils. It's time to pucker up with shimmery colour.
 2 Lifeguard's Choice Lip Balms. These should be great for when on the beach or skiing as they are weatherproof(each £3.69).They say: This natural lip balm is similar to our Beeswax Lip Balm, but provides extra relief from the drying effects of sun, wind and sea.
 I also got this cute tin to put all the lip balms in.
 And last I got this Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream(£5.99), as I said before I ordered it myself.
Burt's Bees say: Give your needy nails a helping hand. Nourish and moisturise nails and cuticles with this intensive, natural treatment. A touch of lemon oil makes your nails smell incredibly clean, healthy and beautiful, naturally.
So, if I have done my maths right, the actual value of my Mystery Bag(without minis and testers) is approximately £65, even more than they said it should be. In spite of receiving a lot of duplicates, I am really pleased with the bag, and now I need some time to actually see how these work. Let's hope I find some new favourites.

Thanks for stopping by,
