Wow....Was so excited about this cleanser too...
Loved the bottle, the fact that it was cheap, all natural, and contained chamomile...But I honestly thought someone was playing a practical joke on me and at any minute a camera crew would come running into my bathroom saying I was punk'd? (okay maybe a little over-dramatic) but seriously this took NOTHING off my face....no makeup, oil, or dirt. Not with my fintertips, not with a washcloth, or even a second wash.
actually returned it the very next day :/
Went on vacation, and forgot my most recent (now prior) cleanser. Like many others, I've learned that my skin too, works better with natural skin care. For whatever reason, I picked this out for my bf to buy (he's so sweet!) After a few days on vacation, my skin was glowing, clear, balanced, and 50% or more, better. What mainly fueled me to get this, was that I loved the scrub that I tried two years ago, and overall my skin was exceptionally clear. BB, really knows what they are doing, and to be honest, nothing bothers me about this cleanser.
I wanted to wait to write this review, but I just couldn't hold back any longer. I haven't found a cleanser that works this well in I don't know how long. I have been suffering from hormonal breakouts for approximately the last three months with a total of approx. 3 pimples per month. And, to make matter worse these are the cystic kind. I am very sensitive to cleansers containing acne medication so I thought I would give this a try since my skin responds well to organic skin care products. I love the texture and how it takes such a small amount to clean the entire face. I do recommend rinsing off makeup beforehand so that you can receive the full benefits of this cleanser, letting it do its' magic pore deep. It has helped lighten up my red spots, and I've only used this three times! It dries up blemishes by the next morning, and it leaves skin feeling refreshed and hydrated. Since I have dry skin, it is always important for me to have a cleanser that does not dry or tighten my skin. When a cleanser tightens the skin this isn't a good thing anyways, but rather promotes future aging and fine lines/wrinkles.
In conclusion, I am rating this cleanser a 5 and this is something I rarely do b/c nothing is perfect, but this is pretty darn close. I will keep everyone updated on the results.
I LOVE this cleanser. It's unlike anything I've ever used before. My skin feels amazing after I use it, I can't stop touching it! I love the scent, it's fresh, invigorating, and yummy, kind of lemony I think. I'd say this is a good cleanser for you if:
1. Your skin breakouts easily (hasn't caused any for me)
2. You like a fresh natural scent (if you prefer none this might not be for you)
3. You have issues with blotchy cheeks and tightness (this cleanser doesn't redden my cheeks like most, if anything I think it's actually calming them which is RARE. It makes my skin so soft afterwards, I only feel slight tightness in the areas I tend to scrub hard.)
4. You like a cool, invigorating cleansing experience. (when you first put this cleanser on your face it's like a blast of cool air and ice cold water, the menthol feels fresh, not harsh.)
5. you like a very smooth, creamy consistency. (It glides over my skin like butter! I always get carried away and end up rubbing my skin too long because I love the way it feels!)
The thing I love most about this cleanser is that my skin looks BETTER after I use it. Having sensitive skin, I typically feel like I've accomplished something if I find a cleanser that doesn't CAUSE issues, this cleanser actually helps!
BUY IT! <3
This is a lovely rich creamy cleanser that leaves my skin feeling super refreshed and clean. I have combo skin and this has never dried me out or made me oily, infact I find it balances the two. The menthol really makes my face tingle not to mention wakes me up on those groggy early mornings. Skin feels soft and less blotchy after use. I only use this in the morning as Ive found it doesnt remove makeup at all but easily washes away any creams/dirt from the night before. Its cheap as chips, i picked this up for 10euro. It has never broken me out and thats good enough for me! Oh and its all natural, what more could you ask for?
Great cleanser! My husband suggested it when I was on a new cleanser search and I was very surprised. It made my skin feel soft and fresh.I love the cool tingle it has. Works pretty well for makeup removal but I sometimes notice a little left over when using my toner but that's the case with even high end cleanser.it also work well for my dry skin.it's a bit overpriced. I paid 10$.but still a great find.Id defiantly repurchase it!
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
