I'm not sure what I think of this foundation. I like it because it is unfragranced (there is a bit of a natural smell to it, but it's faint), and it doesn't have silicones in it (I don't think so, at least), and there are no chemical sunscreens in here (no physical ones either, for that matter). It has some nice ingredients (meadowfoam oil, honey) and it feels nice. Applying it, it's like putting on a lotion. Sort of. It doesn't quite soak in like a lotion, but it doesn't just sit there like a foundation either. On me it's more like a jacked-up BB cream. Coverage is decent and it's easy to blend. It also seems easy to slip off, but fortunately, touch-ups are easy to manage. It doesn't look or feel cakey on my skin, which is great. It also doesn't settle in lines or accentuate my pores. For those reasons I really like it. One thing that bugs me is deciding on a color. The lightest colors almost look exactly the same and it was hard to find a neutral shade. I eventually settled on Classic Ivory (1016) because it seemed the closest match to the L'Oreal True Match foundation I often use (N2). It seems to match fairly well. Some kind of system where Burt's Bees would identify if the colors are cool, neutral or warm would be great, however. I know their website has a shade finder, but it's one of those sliding scale ones that I'm not wild about, because it hinges on how accurate your monitor is. But it feels good, blends well, and gives a natural look, so those are good points. This makes a good day-to-day foundation, but I wouldn't wear it to the gym or on a hot day because I'd fear sweating it off in no time flat. But for the winter when my skin is drier, sure, especially when it's on sale or I have a coupon, because I know it'll give me coverage and some moisture and it's around half the price of the Bare Minerals tinted moisturizer I really love -- just not every day is a $30 product kind of day.

Regular cold weather handwashing makes my hands horribly flaky and chapped, complete with clusters of flattened, slightly itchy, red bumps. Even plain water seems to exacerbate it, and hand creams and oils barely put a dent in the dryness. So, I've been searching for a hand wash that makes it better...or, at least, doesn't make it worse. I've even tried high end moisturizing body washes, with no improvement. Finally, I concluded that it was more likely a reaction to ingredients than dryness per se. Cue me roaming around Walgreens for 20 minutes, comparing ingredient lists to find whichever combination seems the most innocuous. I thank MUA for educating me enough to know what to look out for.Because, hey, I got it this time! Even without using lotion or cream, my hands look and feel dramatically better after a few days of frequent handwashing. The chapping and dryness are almost gone, and the red bumps are less noticeable. Even my cuticles (a problem area 365 days a year) feel less crusty than usual. The scent is different, but pleasant! It smells like the traditional Johnson's baby shampoo at first, then blossoms into a powdery honey scent. At the end of a sniff, it reminds me of SweeTarts, or some similar tangy tablet candy. It's quite nice, and not too "baby's bum" for my picky tastes. Regardless, it disappears after a few minutes.

I like Burt's Bees lip balms but this one is not for me. It has a chemical scent and odd aftertaste. I tried it using it several times but just found myself wiping it off immediately following each attempt. Tossing it.
