I got this at my local Walgreens but you can find this at pretty much any drugstore, Walmart, Target, etc. As for the price, I believe I paid around $10 for this (a bit pricier than most drugstore cleansers and in my opinion NOT worth its price). So I used this for a few months and I was actually pretty excited to try it out. I've never tried out Burt's Bee's skincare before so I wanted to give this a shot. However, I was prettttty disappointed with this cleanser. Although it did make me feel squeaky clean after and I felt that it did remove the dirt/left over makeup, it just wasn't good enough. I didn't see any improvements with my skin at all and I noticed my blemishes continued to come (I know, I know, it doesn't contain any acne medication but STILL!)
Also, a huge turn off was that no matter how hard I tried to avoid my eye area, somehow this cleanser always seems to get into my eyes and ohmygosh ... it STINGS.
All in all, I wasn't impressed with this cleanser and probably won't be repurchasing this again.
I do love the scent and fresh tingling sensation this cleanser provides (do NOT use around your eyes though. I made that mistake once and once only) however I was disappointed that it does not remove my foundation at all. I've since designated this as my cleanser for non makeup days. It's nice and I'll continue to use it as it does soothe my redness a bit, but I don't see a reason to repurchase.
The only time I use this cleanser is with my Clarisonic Mia. It works great, but I really don't like how it lathers with my hands alone because it remains too creamy. It cleans my skin very well, but I CANNOT use it around my eye area because it really stings my eyes. Otherwise, it's a fairly good product.
every time i use it my (sensitive) skin stings. and it smells AWFUL
I am a huge fan of this cleanser. Its very creamy and does not foam whatsoever. It has a very natural (earthy) scent and also contains menthol, which causes an awesome tingle, which I LOVE. If you do not like products that have that cool, tingly sensation (such as Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask), this cleanser may not be for you. This product never leaves my skin feeling dry or tight and has significantly improved the overall appearance of my skin. I can't attest to how well it actually removes makeup, as I use make up removing towelettes before I cleanse my skin at night. I would definitely repurchase this cleanser!!
I really wanted to like this product, but like all of the other Burt's Bees products I have tried it's lacking - minus lip balms, and cuticle cream (love those) . I used this for about 3 months, and it did absolutely nothing for my skin. It doesn't clean makeup, or remove dirt/oil. In fact, it leaves a residue, and made my skin very greasy at times. My search continues for a natural facial cleanser for combo skin.
I love this product! I use it after scrubbing my face with Burt's Bees Facial cleanser and a facial scrubbing pad from The Body Shop. I find that scrubbing the face prior to using this product maximizes the absorption into the skin. The cool tingly sensation is really refreshing and it helps prevent and heal spots where I've popped out black huge heads after steamings. I also love the how the ingredients are 98.8% natural. Most products dry up my skin or make it oilier but this on doesn't. LOVE IT!
My face cleansing rituals include:
- makeup removal with a little olive oil
- face wash with Burt's Bees Radiance Facial Cleanser using a face scrubbing pad from The Body Shop
- rinse off with warm water and a face towel
- second cleansing with Burt's Bees Deep Cleansing Cream
- rinse off with warm water and face towel
- finished off with Neutrogena oil-free face moisturizer for combination skin
I hope this review with help some people out there!
Soothed my redness effectively. Usually I am read for awhile I cleanse my skin and I am blotchy in the morning. This sorts it out. The consistency does feel waxy and I was initially concerned with it leaving a film on my skin, but it doesn't. The sensation is refreshing. My skin doesn't feel tight either. I use it as my second cleanser, I use Simple Spotless Skin Triple action face wash first. then I leave massage this on, works best if your hands are warm then a little goes a long way.
I purchased this product for my 12 year old son. He is at that point where he needs a face cleanser, but nothing medicated yet. This fit the bill perfectly.
I had noticed that his smooth baby soft skin was beginning to look rather bumpy. After one use, his face was so clear. The color even, the texture smooth.
He loved the scent and the tingle the menthol provides. I hope this will work for a few years at least, before we need to switch him to something stronger.
I recommend this for a young person, that does not use make up, but needs a little bit extra clean that soap alone no longer provides. Or perhaps as a gentle morning cleanser for someone older with normal skin.
Really wanted to like this which was a gift. Nice, hygienic tube packaging. Too tingly on my skin though, the menthol is overpowering in both scent and effect. It causes immediate prickly feeling on my skin (which is sensitive) and for me trashes the idea that I am using a gentle product.
I assume menthol has been added to give the sense of a 'deep clean' but am not convinced there is anything in this cleanser which cleanses any better than any other, including my usual, chamomile by Neal's Yard which genuinely is gentle.
