I have only tried the 11 gram sample of this. I think it came in one of those little Burt's Bees kits. I like how moisturizing it is for my dry skin , and I like that it is made from natural ingredients, but the smell is very strong. So, for that reason I will probably never buy a full size tube.
I've been using this product for about 6 months. It is a great cleanser. I apply it to a wet face and rub gently for a few minutes, then use a hot washcloth to steam for about a minute more. I wipe it gently off with the washcloth.
This cleanser is gentle but very effective! I find that it does remove makeup, and is great for clearing pores of plugs. The menthol makes it tingly.
Because this is a cream cleanser, it does need to be followed with a toner- I use witch hazel. The cleanser does not leave visible makeup behind, but the toner helps to remove the last bits of creamy residue.
I gave it a 4 for packaging because it's hard to get the last product out of a tube- I have to cut the end off of the tube and there are usually 3-4 more uses in there.
I have combination skin which is prone to breakouts when it gets too dry. My problem area is the nose- my pores there tend to plug, but this cleanser helps to keep that under control.
This cleanser leaves a weird greasy film on my face that does not rinse off and it and does not remove makeup. I will be returning it.
I LOVEEE this product!! I love it, because I have like dry skin and it works so well! And what I love about it is that it doesn't only hydrate for like 5 minutes, it works like all day!
I have sensitive combination skin and this works great...it doesn't leave my cheeks feeling tight, dried out and itchy like other cleansers I've tried. At the same time though it gets rid of excess oil on my nose and forehead. I like the smell of it (I find it refreshing!) and my skin feels softer after using it. The only reason I didn't rate it 5/5 is because it's thick and creamy and a little hard to spread around (even when my face is dripping wet) and rinse off.
I just started using this, hence the 3 lippies. You only need a very small amount of this as it is rich and creamy. i have super sensitive acne prone skin, and so far it hasnt added to my already troubled skin. Feels minty clean, but i do use a washcloth to wash my face afterwards and follow up with BB's gentle tomato toner to get every bit off.
This is a very good cleanser. It really cleans and leaves face tingly. It reminds me of Noxeema. But not as strong and obviously more natural ingredients. You do not need that much. I give it 4 stars because it is hard to rinse off. It goes on thick and stays on and you need to rinse for a long time. That is my only complaint because I like to get through my regimen as fast as possible.
Left a heavy, oily filminess on my skin and made my blackheads worse. I couldn't finish the tube because of this. I'm not a fan of the menthol tingle either. I would not buy again.
this is the only wash that has cleared up my acne. i have tried everything!! then i read the book secret life of bees and saw the booth at target of burts bees and got so excited i bought it. i have moderate acne and i hate it. i used this and the peach exfoliant and the acne stick and now after 4 days my face is cleared up... its amazing! i dont even need a mousterizer. and the freaking tingly feeling MAN ITS AMAZING. when i get my check imma stock up on this company! i loooooooove this....
EDIT/UPDATE: This is still a nice cleanser, but I decided to look for something that takes my makeup off better and cleanses better overall. I still may repurchase for a gentle morning cleanser, though. Also I relized the tingly feel from the cleanser is from menthol which isn't that good for the skin.
This cleanser makes my face feel soo refreshed and clean and tingly! I look forward to washing my face and have to force myself not to wash it several times a day just because of how good my skin feels afterward. It's like a spa experience.
The cleanser is creamy and rich with a wonderful natural herby smell. Mmmm.
The best part is my pores have gotten smaller!!! I am so thrilled to find a cleanser that shrinks pores and lives up to its claims.
it is true that it doesn't completely remove makeup, but I just quickly wash with an olive oil soap or use my toner to get off anything that's left, and it's no problem.
happy, happy skin!
