Frugal Friday: Burt’s Bees Gud is Good For You!

The name is all love and trust, Burt’s Bees has launched a new line called Güd (pronounced Good). The new line is full of sunshine, laughter and all güd stuff! There are  4 luscious scents; Floral Cherrynova, Orange Petalooza, Vanilla Flame and Pearanormal Activity. Pearnormal Activity is available exclusively at Target until Novemeber 2012. I have the foaming hand wash in this scent and it smells EXACTLY like a fresh juicy pear–I seriously wanted to lick it off my hands.

Created by the makers of Burt’s Bees with the of-the-moment woman in mind, the new collection includes all the “güd” stuff of fun and whimsey– none of the bad.  In keeping with the Burt’s tradition, the products are all natural with no parabens, no phthalates, no petrochemicals and never tested on animals- No way! Just real ingredients in scents so scrumptious you’ll sniff yourself every five minutes. Seriously.

And here’s the lineup:

Natural Nourishing Shampoo – 12oz for $6.99
Natural Softening Conditioner – 12oz for $6.99
Natural Body Wash – 10oz for $6.99
Natural Body Butter – 6oz for $11.99
Natural Body Lotion – 8oz for $6.99
Natural Body Mist – 3oz for $5.99
Natural Foaming Hand Wash – 8oz for $4.99
Natural Hand Cream – 3oz for $7.99

My fav scent by far is the Orange Petalooza, a blood orange invigorating fragrance. These scents are more powerful than the regular Burt’s Bees line and as you can tell, the packaging is way more hip.  I fyou look closely, you can see that the flowers on the bottle are really pieces of fruit made from origami with pink and purple snowflakes thrown in for güd measure.

 I tested the natural hand cream in Vanilla Flame and I liked it quite a bit. It’s not overly thick and abosrbs well. In trying to be more healthy I’ve been drinking more water which means more trips to the bathroom (just call me micro-bladder) which in turn means more hand washing. I want something that is quick to absorb so my keyboard doesn’t get sticky and my hands aren’t greasy for hours. Güd fits the bill!

I also tried the natural body lotion in  Orange Petalooza and it absorbed quickly too and the scent is divine!! This is one of those scents that makes you want to sniff yourself every 5 minutes and then you look like a freak but it’s okay, I’m used to people staring at me. Both the hand cream and the body lotion are surprisingly long lasting. My legs felt hydrated all day long after using the body lotion at 7 am and the hand cream lasts until I have to wash my hands again 🙂

I think this is great line with quality products, charming packaging and everything is under $12–that’s a frugal find!  And to help even more…”like” the Güd Facebook page   for a $1 off coupon.  But wait! There’s more! Scan the QR code with your smart phone on the package to get a “güdee”!
