I don't understand what has changed in Burt's Bees products! Their newer products are just awful.
This cream does a good job of moisturizing, however it is pore-clogging! My skin started looking dull, two weeks or so after starting using this cream. I also had blackheads under my eyes - something I never ever had! I also had some immediate reaction to some ingredient - whiteheads on my cheeks and under-eye region.
Once I discontinued the cream, the skin texture has improved.
I'm on my second jar of this stuff. I love it.
It's really light...almost like the texture of thin yogurt. It's probably not enough if you have super dry skin, but I don't, and it works well for me. I haven't had much of any flakiness since I started using this. It leaves my skin soft, and doesn't clog my pores or cause any irritation at all. It also doesn't have much scent (it has a light, inoffensive scent. It smells like "ingredients"- whatever is in it, that's what it smells like. But there's no added fragrance.)
I plan to continue buying this until they discontinue it or change the formula into something I don't like, or my needs change. It's a great product.
The package is awesome, a good heavy glass jar with a solid top. Nothing flimsy here!
It's about $15 here currently, which seems expensive but a little goes a long way so it's worth it. A jar of this stuff lasts several months.
It is not the best moisturizer I have used, but I did recently purchase a second tub which should say something. It is a simple product, lightweight but creamy, lightly scented. My skin is not sensitive, but I do break out and tend to get oily. This lotion seems to work well with my skin, not too heavy and moisturizes well but I haven't noticed an outstanding difference in my skin.
I am surprised how well I like this, actually. I rarely purchase the same product twice, but I just might with this. I have very dry and sensitive skin -yikes -as well as a sensitive nose. Fragrances are an absolute no-go for me. My mom passed this on to me, and I absolutely love it! It has no smell, a tiny dab (really a tiny dab) goes a long way, and my skin seems to drink it up! It is too thin (for me) to work as a nighttime moisturizer, so I mix it with a couple drops of sea buckthorn oil and put it on in the morning. It's great, easy to find, relatively inexpensive, and makes for great daytime moisture. The one thing I don't love is the container -dipping my finger again and again into one pot isn't the most sanitary situation I can think of.
This is not a bad moisturizer. I bought this for my boyfriend because his skin has been getting a bit red lately from sun exposure and we think he may have mild rosacea or at the very least, sensitive skin. It hasn't made his skin worse but it doesn't seem to have solved the redness issue either. I've used this on occasion when I stay over and it's a solid night moisturizer. When I wake up in the morning, my skin feels hydrated and supple. I also like that its fragrance-free. I usually use Boscia skin care, but in a pinch, I'd repurchase this moisturizer!
I don't have sensitive skin but wanted something gentle for prescriptions I'm taking that could dry my skin out. This make me red and dry and peel. Everything I put only skin burned like crazy until I stopped using this cold turkey for three days.
My skin is dry and sensitive. This white cream didn't irritate my skin, but it wasn't moisturizing enough.
I've used this for a couple of months now and I really like it.
It's a rich, thick night cream but it goes on light, fresh, and grease-free. Absorbs quickly, too.
I have extremely sensitive skin and this doesn't bother it one bit. The elasticity and tone of my skin has improved, and all throughout these last couple of winter months I've never noticed dryness or tightness in my face, which is really great. I've also noticed the redness I often have is under control and *might* be lessening. (Not quite sure yet - after 6 months I'll probably be able to tell better).
Doesn't bother the delicate eye area, and if anything has helped to moisturize the outer corners and under-eye areas for me.
If you're sick of paying huge amounts of money for night creams that never pay off, try this one.
:( this make my skin more sensitive and dry. Make my t-zone feels so hard and itchy and give me little red bumbps :/
I was using (and loving) my Merlot Grapeseed face lotion, but decided it just wasn't cutting it anymore so I decided to give Burts Bees a try instead. I'm so glad I did!!!
The consistency is perfect for my oily skin, and the ingredients appear to agree with my rosacea. Or at least, it's not making it worse...but I feel like my skin looks less red now. The lotion feels nice and light, sinks easily into my skin and sits perfectly under my makeup. (Yes, I use it during the day even though it's marketed as a night cream.) My face feels moist and supple without feeling suffocated like with other lotions. There's not much of a scent, and what's is there doesn't linger. And no SPF, because it's a night cream.
My skin just looks so much nicer when using this- maybe it's because my other lotions were irritating my skin and I just didn't realize it. I just purchased my second tub. Love, love, love :)
