Burts Bees

I first heard of Burt's Bees products about five years ago - I was, as usual, suffering from terrible dry skin on my hands and Mumma B bought me some Burt's Bees Shea Butter Hand Repair Creme in an attempt to stop my whining. It was great stuff and over the years since this first introduction I have had so many people recommend them to me that I thought it was about time I properly tried them out for myself and it turns out they have a range of sets that make perfect Christmas presents!

One of the recommendees was raving about the wonderful Radiance cream she'd been using so I've been trying out the Burt's Bees Radiant Gift Set to see whether it would be a good last minute Christmas present and I just love it. Even Mr J was to be seen using their body wash and loofah in his bath last night. It's about £15.65 and all products are made with Royal Jelly (made from nectar, pollen, flower parts, vitamins, minerals and rather bizarrely, bee hormones). The kit is designed to restore your skins natural radiance by scrubbing cleansing and moisturising - all the products in the kit are travel size as well so great to have in your washbag.

The kit contains - Burt's Bees Radiance Body Lotion (specially crafted to enhance your skins natural glow), Burt's Bees Radiance Lip Shimmer (now a permanent resident in my car this lip conditioner not only moisturises but gives your lips a sheer, radiant glow), Burt's Bees Radiance Day Creme (really lightweight and moisturising), Burt's Bees Radiance Night Creme (this gives you a deep overnight radiance boost) and Burt's Bees Radiance Exfoliating Body Wash (use with the loofah to cleanse and exfoliate your skin).

I have just loved using these products - they are gentle on your skin, moisturising and contain all natural ingredients so you know that what you are using is going to be kind to your skin. I think next year everyone I know will be getting a Burt's Bees kit of some sort - they do everything from Naturally Ageless to Burt's Bees Baby Bee 'Getting Started' Kit via new mothers and Burt's Bees Men's Grooming Gift Set! Their separate products are great too for a little something for someone that maybe you don't know too well - some of the Burt's Bees Shea Butter Hand Repair Creme is a fantastic thank you present to any woman who's house you are going to over the Christmas season. Burt's Bees - a real god send for the difficult present solution. xx

More MeMeMe

The more MeMeMe products I use the more impressed I am. Ok so they are not Dior or other designer quality (that would be ridiculous for the price they are) but they are reasonably priced, good cosmetics that do what they are supposed to. I reviewed their lip gloss last month and since then I have tried out their eye colour, mascara and lip gloss and I am really impressed with all of them.

Great for stocking fillers or as cheap, token presents for your girlfriends I'd go for either their Colourama long lasting cream eyeshadow or the Drama T'Eyes precision tip eyeliner pen. I tried the Liquid Bronze Colourama eyeshadow - it lasts for ages without creasing (quite unusual for a liquid colour I find) and the colour is so dramatic its perfect for Christmas parties. I tried mine out during the day and it wasn't too OTT so great for day to night make up.

For those of you who love liquid eyeliner the Drama T'Eyes is fantastic for a bit of precision. Nothing can persuade me to give up my old favourite L'Oreal SuperLiner but for precision flicks and end of the day pre-party touch ups I would not be without this amazing pen in my make-up bag. I love these products for credit crunch pressies or a Christmas party treat for you xx
