i bought this moisturizer a few weeks ago after debating on 'hope in a jar' for quite a while. i'd been needing a good moisturizer for a while & when i saw this, made with 90% natural ingredients, & after i read great reviews on the burt's bees site, i bought it.
the packaging is simple but effective. it consists of a simple, easy to control pump. absolutely no mess.
as far as the product goes, i really love this moisturizer. the smell is so pleasant & gentle. the texture is creamy but not thick, & it goes on my skin smoothly. i've noticed that during these past few weeks of usage, any pimple that i've gotten seems to fade away much faster than before (i'm a very slow healer). i noticed a difference with one pimple that faded away almost completely in 3 days, as opposed to my usual week +. for that, i have to say that this moisturizer was worth spending $17 on. it also helps calm my constant rosiness.
my only downside is that i don't feel it moisturizes my dry skin enough. although it's very hydrating, around 15 minutes after application i begin to feel some tightness on the driest part of my face (forehead).
all in all, i'd definitely recommend this product, especially because it's so light & airy that i think it'd be amazing on most skin types. burt's bees is for me a brand that i'll continue to go to for my skin care.
This has become my all-time favorite facial moisturizer. The only downside to it is that it is not marked as having SPF (though zinc oxide is listed in the ingredients, so, hmm). The texture of this lotion is very light, but it moisturizes well. It absorbs easily and does not leave a film on the face. It just feels very natural to my skin, and my skin can breathe. I use it under my eyes too with no problem. I picked this up on a whim and I am so glad that I did!
I've been searching for a new moisturizer that doesn't make my sensitive acne-prone skin break out and is light enough to moisturize without making my makeup slide off my face within a few hours. This moisturizer fits the bill nicely! So many other products make me break out but this one hasn't after weeks of use, and it's light enough that my face is left moisturized without a greasy feeling. I was lucky to receive a few samples of this before purchasing which was great as it isn't on the lower end of drugstore products! No, it doesn't have an SPF factor, but I actually like that as all the other moisturizers I've tried with SPF are a bit heavier and I have a feeling that if this one had an SPF factor it would be heavier, too. Not an issue as other products I use have SPF so I am sufficiently covered. The only thing I don't particularly like is that the opaque bottle makes it impossible to tell just how much is left. But overall a 5/5 as I base my review primarily on the product itself.
This stuff is an AMAZING day moisturizer! I will say this is more of a heavy lotion than cream! & I wish it was a tad more moisturizing however I dont like a heavy moisturizer during the day because I feel it makes my make-up slide around. But if you prefer a super moisturizing day cream this would not be for you. I use my heavy creams at night! If you do that your face should be moisturized enough still from the night before to handle a light-med moisture cover for the day!
I was chosen to participate in the Burt's Bees Sensitive Skin campaign -This review is for the Daily Moisturizing Cream. This cream feels rich yet lightweight when applied to the skin. Although it's labeled as a "cream", it has more of a lotion-texture to it. It absorbs very quickly & leaves a nice, matte finish on the skin. It is fragrance-free but has a pleasant smell to it; it probably comes from the sesame seed oil & shea butter. It hydrates nicely without any greasy feel whatsover. I have relatively normal skin w/seasonal dryness so I'm not sure if this will be enough moisturization for those with truly dry skin. The downside to the product is not having an SPF. Since it's labeled as a Daily Moisturizer and there is a separate product for Night, some kind of physical sunscreen really needs to be included in this product (titanium dioxide and/or zinc oxide). I posted on BB's Facebook Wall and posted this request, so hopefully, they will launch an SPF version. Otherwise, it's a lovely moisturizer and I'd recommend it to anyone, not just those who have sensitive skin.
I don't really consider myself to have sensitive skin. I'm generally combination/normal but need something a little heavier at this time of year and through the winter (I live in central Ontario). I bought this moisturizer today after reading about it. I aim for more natural products whenever possible. From what I read, this is apparently a moisturizer that isn't too light or heavy, or costly; doesn't test on animals and is mostly natural -I liked the sound of that. Plus, I have used several Burt's Bees products before and have no major complaints about them. I washed my face, put on the moisturizer and almost immediately felt a mild burning/hot and slightly itchy feeling. I looked in the mirror and had red splotches all over my face. Interesting for someone who can't recall ever having overly sensitive skin. I will be returning this tomorrow. In the meantime, I washed my face and took an allergy pill.
I will say that the very slight scent that it has is herbal and sweet, I didn't mind it. The consistency was okay -just slightly thicker than what I've used in the past but I rubbed it between my fingers to warm it up first and it went on fine. The pump bottle is great for sanitary purposes and the price wasn't bad ($25).
I'm not one to write a review, just read them, but my reaction to this sensitive skin product has me bit confused.
I received this product as I am a Bzz Agent along with the Sensitive Face wash, which I have also reviewed. Typically I use Olay Total Effects for Sensitive Skin with SPF 15 (which I haven't been able to find as of late). I was happy when I saw the packaging for this moisturizer to be similar to the Olay. I feel the pump you can control how much or how little product you want. It is a pretty thick cream. I don't find any fragrance smell to this product at all. When applied it does tend to take a while to blend in, which I guess is good that it doesn't sink in right away. I feel it does give my complexion a nice glow, but just make sure you blend it in otherwise you will have a coating of white cream on your face! I have not had any reactions to this moisturizer and have gotten several compliments as of late that my skin has a glow to it. My face feels very smooth and has not created any irritations or bumps. The only thing I don't like about this product is that it does NOT contain SPF in it. I don't like using an additional product for SPF. Luckily my foundation and powder contain SPF, but I would like to have my moisturizer to contain it as well as I don't like to layer multiple creams on my face. I feel like when I do that, that they just kind of sit on top of each other.
I received this for free since I am a BizzAgent. I really appreciate that the Burt's Bees company sent me the sensitive skin face cream. The face cream came in a nice pump container, which I'm sure many people will appreciate, however, it really seemed like a thick lotion, rather than a cream. I first tried it on my hands and noticed that it soaks in right away, which is great, but it did not provide enough moisture for my dry skin. Also, it did not irritate my skin. These products might be best for people that have combination/sensitive skin, but it's not enough for my dry/sensitive skin.
I like this moisturizer, it's light and goes on smoothly, it just faded into my skin without leaving an oily film on top so I could put my makeup on right afterwards . After using it for a few days, I felt my skin was less irritated, I think it's the added aloe or lack of fragrance but it feels natural and soothing on my skin. I also haven't had any clogged pores from from using this, which isn't always the case with some moisturizers I've used in the past for sensitive skin.
I received a sample of this product as a Bzz agent but I will buy this one again, especially in the summer months, when I need a light moisturizer that will add softness to my skin without weighing it down with heavy oils, this Burt's Bees moisturizer adds just what you need and nothing more.
I was really excited about trying out the sensitive skin line by Burt's Bees through BzzAgent. Sadly, I'm not all that excited about either the cleanser or the moisturizer.
I've been using both for a couple weeks now and I think they're making me break out. My skin has lost a lot of luster and I get big painful pimples around my lips. It does moisturize well without feeling greasy at all and I'd recommend it for someone with less sensitive skin who wants great hydrating power for a lesser price. However, I'm not sure it deserves the "Sensitive" label.
