Splurge vs. Steal: Kiehl’s Soy Milk & Honey and Burt’s Bees Naturally Nourishing

There’s something inherently comforting about milk and honey. It definitely kicks a cup of tea up a notch, and it’s pretty fantastic as a body cream as well. One such option is Kiehl’s Soy Milk and Honey Hand & Body Lotion (exclusive to Nordstrom). It’s got a light scent and is equally lightweight in texture. It absorbs quickly into the skin but hydrates well and leaves your skin very soft. An 8 oz. bottle of this costs $19.50.

If milk and honey is your thing, but the price of Kiehl’s version isn’t, you may want to consider Burt’s Bees (new and improved) Naturally Nourishing Milk and Honey Body Lotion. The lightweight formula feels similar to Kiehl’s but the scent is a little stronger. I picked up the  6 0z. bottle for under $10 (a small one is also available for half the price) at Target and have been really liking it. The stronger aroma tends to fade away quickly and it leaves your skin soft and moisturized.

Also, it’s worth mentioning that Kiehl’s will be releasing a new addition to their Creme de Corps line — a Soy Milk and Honey Whipped Body Butter in a tub. You can see the image on the website, but the product isn’t available for purchase yet. It sure does look good enough to eat though:)
