Burt's Bees Naturally Nourishing Milk & Honey Body Lotion

"For normal to dry skin, this non-greasy, lightweight natural moisturiser goes to work the minute you apply it, and it’s scientifically proven to moisturise for up to 24 hours. Milk nourishes while honey helps to soften skin; plus, coconut and grape seed oils and vitamin E deliver beneficial nutrients to the skin. Burt's Bees' dermatologist-tested formula absorbs quickly but stays with you all day and night."

Okay, first off this. smells. awesome. Seriously, it's like a vanilla honey milkshake. The little blurb above is exactly right - it gets to work right away and isn't greasy; I could pull my leggings on and I wasn't worried about it smudging or leaving my leggings coated in lotion.
The best bit about Burt's Bees is the fact that it's made from 99% natural ingredients and although I don't recognise every single ingredient on the back of the bottle there are a lot that I do know and it's not tested on animals which is a total winner! 

I've read online that the formula has changed since the product was first released but I have only just received this so I can't compare. I didn't find it greasy at all but it should be noted that it is recommended for normal to dry skin. In terms of the thickness of the cream I would say it is moderate - it's far less thick than most "body butters" that are on the market but is slightly heavier than your average cream. If your skin isn't remotely dry then you might find it greasy but personally it sank in quickly and didn't leave any unwanted residue. The scent was noticeable but not too strong.

This lotion comes in two sizes, 70g for £5.99 or 170g for £9.00* and can be found online here (click!)
