Very nice little set, this is perfect to find out which products you'll like. I do think using milk in body products is gross though:/
This review is for the older version of this kit. It's the perfect little starter kit to try all of Burt's baby line. They all smell absolutely heavenly and work fabulously as well. The older kit came with the Lotion, diaper ointment, apricot baby oil, a packet of dusting powder and a packet of the buttermilk bath, a cute little jar of baby cream, baby wash, a bar of baby soap, a bar of solid shampoo, and a cute baby comb, all for 10 dollars. The new version come with the oil, wash, lotion, diaper cream and soap, all for 13 dollars. Kind of a rip off now. The packaging for the items in the older version was much nicer too. What a bummer. Poo to Burt's Bees for that!
I wanted some bath products for our baby, and thought this would be a nice way to "splurge" on some natural products without spending tons of bucks. The items come in a reusable, clear vinyl, rectangular pouch with zipper closure:
Baby Bee Apricot Baby Oil (1 fl. oz. bottle)
Baby Bee Buttermilk Lotion (1 fl. oz. bottle)
Baby Bee Buttermilk Bath (.14 oz. powder packet)
Baby Bee Buttermilk Soap (.80 oz. bar)
Baby Bee Diaper Ointment (.56 oz. squeeze tube)
Baby Bee Dusting Powder (.14 oz. powder packet)
Baby Bee Shampoo Bar (.80 oz. bar)
Baby Bee Comb
I loved the kit so much I bought some items in full-size when I ran out (Dusting Powder, Shampoo Bar, and Buttermilk Soap thus far), and then I bought a second for use as a travel kit. The second kit contains the same as above, except it has Baby Bee Shampoo & Wash (1 fl. oz. bottle) instead of the Shampoo Bar and Buttermilk Soap - the change is probably due to the Shampoo Bar being discontinued.
The only complaint I have is that the bottles have plain screw tops - a squirt top (like many lotions and shampoo bottles have) would be easier to use. I'll review each of the products more thoroughly under their specific names instead of all here. Overall, I love the kits and recommend them for: (a) new moms in search of baby-friendly natural products, and (b) babies on the go!
This is a great kit, the perfect way to get familiar with the Baby Bee products and most of them have that wonderful, comforting scent. The only thing I didn't love was the shampoo bar, it didn't make much lather or seem to get my son's hair as clean as his regular baby shampoo. IMO, the best products in the kit are the soap, lotion and diaper cream -- I'd definitely repurchase those in full-size.
This is my go-to baby gift. I love the fact that the Burt's Bees product are safe for sensitive(baby)skin. Some parents use the kit as an intro kit; hence the name "Getting Started". Other parents use it as a travel kit. Everyone I've given this to have raved about how wonderful the products are.
The kit contains:
Dr. Burt's 100% Natural Children's Toothpaste, Baby Bee Buttermilk Bath, Baby Bee Diaper Ointment, Baby Bee Dusting Powder, Baby Bee Apricot Baby Oil, Baby Bee Buttermilk Lotion, Baby Bee Honey Comb
Other Baby Bee product may be included depending on the specific kit.
