I am now on my second bottle. I love how it leaves my face very soft and supple, during the winter that is. I feel like this is better suited for the cold seasons than it is for summer. It must be something about the temperature or humidity, but when I had used it during the hotter months, it would feel thick and tacky like glue and would not absorb into my skin. It's lightweight enough during the winter for my skin (I'm an oil-slick all year.) without being overdrying. It did sting my face the first few times I had used it, but no experiences with breaking out. I would definitely buy it again for my winter skincare routine, but need something better for the summer.
This lotion does the job, and it's one of the few drugstore physical sunscreens out there.
However, the lotion feels very heavy and tacky on the face, even though it's not especially moisturising. The fragrance is too strong, and it is difficult to apply. This lotion needs to be rubbed into the skin very well, otherwise it would leave white streaks or even flakes off the skin.
I will not repurchase after the current bottle's finished.
This is a strange product and I have mixed feelings about it.
I really like the Radiance Facial Cleanser so was looking forward to using this. I have combination skin - really oily t-zone especially my nose and dry areas. I wanted a cream that would hydrate my skin without encouraging excess oil.
This lotion is sticky and does not glide on the skin at all. It doesn't really feel like it's penetrating the skin but my face feels soft and fresh after use.
When I put my make up on, my skin isn't oily and my foundation goes on really nicely.
I have a real problem with an oily, shiny nose during the day but since using this lotion, I don't feel my nose gets as oily. In fact the lotion I think, acts as a primer, locking in moisture.
If this lotion glided on better without stickiness I would definitely buy it again. It's around £20 so it's not the cheapest, therefore I want to be sure before I buy it again.
I was running out of my moisturizer and needed something "cheap" and quick. I've always like the premise behind Burt's Bees and love their replenishing lip balm, so I thought "why not?" Big mistake - although I like the glow it leaves behind, it feels heavy on my skin, despite the thin lotion consistency, and its smell is just bit to "fragrancy" for me. I hate waste so I'm using it as a body lotion. Will not repurchase.
Has a solid glass bottle and the product smells very nice. I was impressed because it had SPF plus lots of nice ingredients that nourish the skin (like royal jelly), and when wearing it, it feels like it does what it claims - my skin looks healthy and feels extra soft. The lotion has a thin consistency which absorbs quickly.
There is only one con, but it is a big one. This lotion is very hard to apply and and never applies without looking patchy in places. It dries white on my skin if I accidentally reapply it to the same space, once it sinks in it is not at all blendable, and if I do try to blend it, it will rub off and leave eraser-like rubbings on my face! I have discovered that once it starts rubbing off, it can't be fixed and I basically have to wipe the whole thing off and start again. I find you have to apply an extremely small amount quickly and even then it never goes on 100% okay. It is annoying that the instructions on the bottle tell you to apply it liberally. I think the problem may have to do with the lotion using natural zinc based sunscreen.
I didn`t like it product at all really. I was sad because I love ALL my other BB products. This just didn`t give me enough moisture. That could have been my own fault though since I didn`t buy the Day Cream this time. If you need extra moisture go for a cream instead of the lotion. The lotion has spf which is nice.. more BB products should have spf! Didn`t hate it but I didn`t love it.
I will be honest that there is not a single Burt's Bees product that I like so I was not thinking I would like this to begin with. I was a little surprised though. The scent is not too bad and it is nice that it has a scent. Most Burt's Bees products I think have a funny smell to them. This lotion is very thin and I found I did not need much to moisturize my skin which I found really nice. It also sunk in really quickly. My problem with it was that it left me with breakouts that days later I am still dealing with. I would have given if a better rating had the breakouts not shown up.
A standard, light lotion that might not glide on as easily, but is definitely not greasy. I like that it has SPF 15 and provides protection throughout the day. Don't buy this if you need heavy moisture- in that case I would recommend their night cream or a heavier cream. I have combination skin so it does not leave any part of my skin greasy or dry, so I think it's a winner? Wish it glided on more easily, but it works.
This review is for the spf bottle version. I have super sensitive skin and I'm always on the lookout for natural skin products, especially a good moisturizer with SPF. I've tried everything, and I've come to the conclusion that I am allergic to all chemical sun protection. I only use mineral makeup, and since I'm not allergic to the titanium dioxide and zinc in it, I thought I'd give this lotion a try.
I've been using this for a week now, and it feels amazing on my skin. I like how it makes my face feel nourished and protected without the sting of other spf lotions I've tried. It also hasn't broke me out, which is a FIRST! I break out with EVERYTHING!
My only wish is for this product to have a higher spf, but my skin doesn't react well to a higher spf anyway. Quick tip, this will leave a SLIGHT white cast on your face, but it's so much less than other spf's I've tried. I only use 2 squirts and spread it all over as thinly and evenly to alleviate the whiteness. Love this! (so far, crossing fingers...)
this is a review for the lotion with spf 15. first of all i wish it was fragrance free but it does smell nice. it has a thin consistency that soaks easily into the skin. i only took 1 star off because i would like it to be more moisturizing than it is. it comes in a glass bottle which i love and is cruelty free and green. its the perfect edition to the burts bees acne skin care set.
