There is nothing worse than an impulse buy. I always end up with products I don't need. Despite working in retail for years I still sometimes fall for the impulse buy at the tills trick. The product I'm reviewing today is a total impulse buy gone wrong. While paying for an item in Primark / Penneys I saw what looked like Burts Bees products for only €1.50. My eye caught a hand cream an before I knew it, it was in my basket along with my other items. It wasn't till I got home I realised I had not bought Burt's Bees but instead I had bought 'Natural Beeswax'.
So what do I think of this 'fake' Burt's Bee's wax hand cream? I hate it! I used it a few times then threw it away (Well it vanished into the back of my makeup collection along side other products I discard.) The only thing I did like about the cream is the packaging and the fact that it is small enough to throw into your handbag.
When it came to the cream itself, I hated the scent. I found it stayed on my hands long after I used the cream. I also didn't find it to be overly moisturising so I soon stopped using it. My sister who is a big Burts Bees fan tried the lip balm version of this product and said it was nowhere near as good as Burts.
So if you are shopping in Penneys soon beware and don't fall into the impulse purchase trap like I did!
