I have been using this product for over a year now and works great as a makeup remover. I use it for my first wash at night to remove my makeup followed by Alba Botanica Coconut Milk Facial Wash. It tingles a bit like Noxema but not as strong.
I've been using this stuff for about three months, so I think I can give a fairly accurate review on it. I use it only at night as I prefer a clean, oil-free canvas to apply make-up over in the morning. I find this cleanser really does well at taking off my make-up (I don't wear heavy foundation though usually just a tinted moisturizer or mineral make-up). I'm not crazy about the menthol in it, but it's not like Noxema strong or anything. It's kinda a pain in the but to have to use an eye-make up remover, but I usually need to anyway so whatever. The texture is very rich and creamy but this is definitely not a foaming cream cleanser. I think it has helped with my breakouts but that hasn't really been an issue for me in the past little while (maybe this is actually helping more than I think!). Overall, I think this is a nice natural cleanser and I think it would work well for someone whose skin can tolerate natural oils.
I been using this cleanser for almost 2 months now and I must say that i'm not impressed. I love how it makes your skin feel nice & tingly, kinda has a cooling effect which I love, but overall, it didn't help my breakouts. =( I was really dissapointed cause I really do like Burt's Bees products. I'm sad to say that I will not be re-purchasing.
It help to reduce redness on my pimple..skin feels really clean & smooth..Chamomile sooths my irritated skin...I don't really like the menthol its too minty as if my skin is burning..but no break out..price is good..is natural...happy happy...
This is my first review here! Yay! What brought me to MUA in the first place was to read reviews on some natural skin care products. The ingredients of this cleanser are natural and safe...and I've become very picky in the last few months about what I will allow on my skin. I was disappointed to see all the bad reviews of this product after I bought it (only discovered this site after I bought it). Some mentioned that this is expensive...but I'm not bothered by $8 for a natural face cleanser. Every other "natural" company that I've found is more expensive.
I'm still over the fence on this product. I've used 3/4 of the 6oz tube. It feels awesome...I love the tingly feeling the menthol gives my face, although menthol can indeed be irritating (especially if it gets anywhere NEAR your eyes, for sure...OUCH). My skin felt slightly tight and dry after cleansing, but it was easily soothed with an oil or moisturizer.
I didn't really notice a difference in my skin after using it for about 2 months. I don't think it made me break out any worse than I already do, but definitely did not help any breakouts or keep them at bay. It did succeed in taking my makeup off, however I only use a sheer veil of MMU and some concealer, so can't speak for those who use a lot of foundation, eyeliner, etc.
I have already bought another cleanser, if I don't like the new one I will probably finish the Burt's Bees. Wouldn't think twice about tossing it though. I wish this cleanser did more for my skin, because the feel, smell and ingredients are amazing...
I really like this product, but i will say it is not for people with sensitive skin! For my skin this product worked really good, I have acne prone skin and this really helped, but did kind of dry out my skin. the dryness of my skin for the cleanser doesnt really bother me becasue once I use my mousturizer I am good to go! I really hope this review helped, check out my swap items!
When I used this product, it had a significant stinging effect. In addition, it caused my skin to break out. I have sensitive skin and will not be buying again.
I have pretty acne-prone skin and other products including pro-active leave my skin feeling oily. This product does not do that. I do agree with some of the users that my face feels like it has a residue when using it. However, after a couple of minutes... this goes away and my skin feels soft. I have noticed a change in the appearance of my skin. As of now, my skin has a more even tone and is less prone to acne.
Since moving to Chicago from New York, I've been having troubles with my usual face cleanser (Neutrogena Pore Refining) - what was perfect in one city was killing my skin in another, making it dry and crackly. Burts Bees has solved the problem, leaving me with soft vibrant skin, the perfect canvas for applying serums or moisturisers. Agree with the other reviewer that it reminds me of Noxema (ahhh memories!) but far gentler. I don't see the film either, but then again, I take care to rinse my skin for a good 90 seconds to make sure everything comes off. Even good for eye make up! All in all, a lovely reasonably priced face cleanser - give it a go!
It just didn't make a difference. After using it, I didn't feel like my skin was even clean. It was still oily...
