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.
I reviewed this product as a buzzagent. I have used BB products for a long time and am usually happy with the quality. This product did not disappoint me and in fact, is one of the better products I have used. I have rosacea, so must be really careful about ingredients that might cause irritation. First off, I really like the packaging. Your fingers and hands don't touch the product to get it out of the container. It comes in a short pump container and one little pump is all you need for your entire face. The consistency is nice and feels good going on your face....it glides well! The cream did not cause any irritation at all and provided a good base for my tinted moisturizing lotion. I provided a sample of the product to a family member, who also loves it. This will definitely be on my "will buy" list for future. :)
I've been using this cream for about 2 weeks now. I'm happy to say that so far I haven't broken out or been irritated by this product. I don't have super sensitive skin but my face does react negatively and/or breaks out quite easily from the ingredients in products.
This cream isn't scented but it does have a fairly obvious smell that some might not like, kind of like oats or grain. I believe this is from the cotton and rice extracts.
If I put it on dry skin it takes a while to soak in, but when I apply it right after washing my face it absorbs right away. I like that it doesn't feel greasy even though it has many natural oils in the ingredients.
I'm kind of undecided if I would buy this again. On one hand I like that it doesn't irritate my skin and it leaves my face very soft. But I don't find it moisturizes much. I have some dry patches on my face and they still haven't gotten much better after using this. Even minutes after putting the cream on I can see any dryness and flaky patches show right up again. So I don't feel this does enough for my needs.
I think it's very nice for during the summer when you want something lightweight and for anyone with sensitive skin who can't tolerate most lotions, but I wouldn't recommend it if you want something very moisturizing.
* I recieved a sample of this product to test as a Bzz Agent.
great for sensitive skin-no fragrance and 99.0% natural. love that. my only gripe is that its definitely NOT moisturizing enough for me and i have oily skin! this would work fantastic for the hot summer months. the amazing thing is that it keeps me SHINE free (thus, the 3rd lippie)! i wonder if its because of the cotton ingredient? i quit using it after a week because it left my combo face feeling quite dry. although i have a super oily t zone, the rest of my face (cheeks & chin) were crying for moisture. i would recommend this for extremely oily faced girls (all over oily), this really stops the shine! the dispenser looks like a deodorant container.
I received this produce free as a buzz agent for consideration. I have sensative skin that is prone to breakouts. I found this to be a gentle moisturizer however I did have 2 breakouts using this product. It did not sting, burn or make my eyes water. I feel it has good moisturizing properties but left my skin somewhat sticky. Love the packaging but would not purchase on my own.
I received this as a Buzz Agent. I have sensitive skin and this did not irritate my skin at all. In fact, it feels calming and rich. No zits either (and I've been using it for two weeks). The package is great too. It's a small air-tight pump, so you can put it in your purse or suitcase without fear of leaking. I subtracted ine lippie (star) because there is no SPF. Would love it to have a zinc based sunscreen.

Nice 1.8oz pump bottle, fragrance-free and very gentle and soothing. Absorbs very quickly with no oily feeling and leaves my combination skin feeling comfortable but not greasy. Reminds me a bit of Cerave lotion and Complex-15, but a little thicker in texture. Good for a moisture pick-me-up in the middle of the day, if I'm not wearing makeup, or to dab around the eyes when they're looking a bit...crepe-y.
