It’s hard for a patient to properly take care of themselves at the hospital— skincare especially requires a lot more effort, as there is a limited number of options that are really accessible. That’s why I recommend the Burt’s Bees gift set! Its affordability is only one of its many perks: your loved one can use this to wash their face and moisturize their body, lips, and feet. When times are tough, this set offers everything a hospital patient will need to maintain their skincare.
