Unfortunately, they're changing the formula and price - from SPF 15 to SPF 7, and I think the price goes up a few dollars. BOO!
I really, really liked this moisturizer. My friend recommended it because of how it left your skin feeling (nice and cool, from the jelly). It had a decent amount of SPF in it (I'm sad they brought the SPF amount down), as well as not leaving your face feeling sticky, oily, or a white cast on it. If it felt a little thick when I got towards the end of the bottle, I'd mix it with some regular aloe vera gel from Walgreens and good as new! Never broke me out, didn't quite keep me matte (but I attribute that to sweat from extreme heat; in the winter, it's wonderful!), and smells pretty neutral. NO COMPLAINTS!
I'm sad, as I said, that they're changing it up. I never realized that I had found such a nice moisturizer for my skin; now the daunting task of finding another good moisturizer for around the same price with the same or more SPF is so discouraging - hearing stories and reviews of breaking out and all - I dread it! My skin is more or less at a good place right now, and I cringe at the thought of disrupting it. Oh well, I really don't think the new product of Burt's Bees (with a drop in SPF and an increase in price...and I think there's less product in the bottle?) is worth staying with it, so I'm off to try others. I guess I could always come back and try it if I don't find anything else, but there's gotta be better out there for the price, SPF, and amount of product. I'll find it!
This moisturizer is an ok one.
The good things about this moisturizer is that it smells heavenly, its natural, the packaging is pretty and it has an spf of 15. The bad things are that the moisturizer contains a white powder that sits/ settles at the bottom, so before you use it you have to shake it well. The moisturizer may sometimes be hard to spread/ blend in, and can feel/ get sticky. My skin doesn't exactly absorb the lotion and once it has settled on my skin, the powder in it tends to clump up, or crease, or make streaks. After a while of using this moisturizer it gave me blemishes here and there. Even though I said the packaging was pretty, it tends to get messy, and the pump can be a pain to work with at times. it may give to much or to little product, or get clogged. if the product is almost finish it gets difficult to get the lotion from the bottom because the straw/tube for the pump is only so long. its quite pricy for the amount of lotion you get , but I guess its pricey because its natural. I personally didn't like this product and wont repurchase it, but everyone has different skin and it does hurt to try.
Great product! Feels great on skin and moisturizes too without feeling greasy
I have been searching for a SPF lotion that doesn't irritate or inflame my skin or make me look greasy and I finally have found It!!! My skin is so glowy when I use this and it's never a greasy look. I haven't broken out from it which is perf. I love this so much. Oh the ONLY CON face feels a little stickyish after application but is totally fine within 10 mins so it's not a big prob
I was so surprised to read all the negative reviews! I have primarily dry skin, and every other moisturizer I tried--especially hyped-up ones like Neutrogena's (love their cleansing products but hate their lotions)--left my skin just as dry or broke it out. The first time I ever used this, my boyfriend said, "Wow, you look so glowy!" I've gone through 2 bottles since. I use it every day, and while I don't think it's as effective in winter--my skin seems to drink it all up and still feel dry--overall, I love it and can feel (and see) how much it hydrates my skin. And someone said it has "sparkles"? Not true at all, I believe mica is an ingredient but I have never noticed any sheen or glitter after using this for a year. Plus, built-in SPF. I definitely recommend this.
I wanted to like this but it left my dark skin with white streaks from the spf agent in it. i had to mix this with a drop of my liquid foundation to combat this.Overall an okay daily moisturizer but not suited from darker skin tones.
I love Burt's Bees and I wanted to move away from my Equate Aveeno knockoff moisturizer with SPF for something containing more natural ingredients. Unfortunately, this product felt awful on my skin. It is a very thin, soupy moisturizer that leaves that awkward, greasy, and shiny film that never quite soaks in that most of my body sunscreens leave behind. Putting makeup on top of this made me look extra shiny. A very huge disappointment!
This stuff made my skin look terrible, especially the sensitive skin on my forehead. It gave me little white bumps all over the area, which fortunately went away after I stopped using it. I also didn't like the fragrance.
Regardless of the so-so reviews this product has received from other uses, I have been quite pleased with my purchase. I was worried after reading that it contains comedogenic ingredients (I break out easily on my chin) but I had to try it anyway, since the Burt's Bees cream cleanser managed to miraculously clear my face up and has been my HG cleanser ever since. I like that it's natural, chemical ingredients react against my face. I have actually NEVER found a moisturizer that DIDN'T make me break out - until this :) I think I can say that confidently since I've been using it daily (2 pumps every morning) for a few weeks now. My skin does seem healthier and has more.... radiance? lol, but as I said more importantly it hasn't broke out. The smell is quite strong, but I like it, and it fades throughout the day anyway. As other users have said, it will start to peel off your face if you apply with too much pressure. You have to stop rubbing it in a little earlier than you might with other products. Otherwise... I'm a satisfied customer, and will buy again.
Sooo sticky. I wanted to like this. Good packaging, reputable brand, no animal testing etc. But like other reviewers said, this feels weird on your skin. I usually put on Bare Minerals after moisturizing and never had a problem with whatever moisturizer I was using. But with this on, my makeup feels like it's not "gliding" on, you know what I mean? My skin did not feel hydrated, and I'm pretty sure my already clogged pores are worse now. Conclusion: no likey.
