I received this product along with the cleanser from the same line of sensitive skin products from the Bzz campaign.. here are my two cents worth.
I was pleasantly surprised with this cream. Practically no odor, which is nice, and it feels nice going in IF the skin is still damp.. I found it hard to spread around otherwise, because my skin literally sucked this stuff up.. it sinks in beautifully .. and awfully quick.. lol.. too quick.. thus the suggestion to apply it to slightly damp skin.
No irritation, and my skin is very soft after applying this, I prefer this to the cleanser and I may very well keep this on hand especially for the winter months.. as i found it out performs some very expensive skin creams and lotions I presently have in my bathroom as I type this. I believe it goes for 24.99 CAD at my local SDM.. not too bad considering I have not reacted poorly to the product thus far. :) BONUS: no SPF. I know, everyone should use it.. but there are some of us poor souls, that burn with SPF. and burn badly. or react to it, rash, itchiness.. acne.. etc.. So I prefer my lotions and creams remain SPF free.
One one beef .. again.. the packaging.. the pump is kind of sketchy.. sometimes too much comes out.. some times not enough, and it feels like the pump is loose and the container will break after some time... will have to see about that..I hope it doesn't. otherwise, I am liking this moisturizer so far. I think it would be too heavy for the summer however. IMO.
Had to leave a review for this because I am so pleasantly surprised by how wonderful it makes my skin feel! I usually make my own facial lotions but I was away and my skin felt dry and tight and my little travel jar of my homemeade goodies wasnt quite enough. It was 10 degrees out and my skin was parched. I was afraid to try anything new because it seems like every time I try a new product, I break out with cysts on my chin. 3 days after the start of a new cream, like clock work. I wouldnt believe it if I didnt see it for myself. Anyway, I like most burts bees products and they are very natural for mainstream drugstore products, so I tend to gravitate to them. My skin was already sensitized when I bought this...I had used a bp product for an emerging cyst from a sample of some other product I had used and the bp seemed to really make my skin go haywire. Dry and painful (o..and the cyst was still there!..good times).This was the best thing I could find that seemed gentle and was for sensitive skin. There is barely any scent to me, if at all. It absorbs quickly and after a month of daily use..no cysts! It could be a little more hydrating for my winter skin, but I feel that this is a great year round moisturizer. If your skin is really dry in areas, you can put on a second layer without getting any build up. You could also put another intensive moisturizer over it with no ill effects. I usually just put on a second layer on the super dry areas or use my homemade intensive moisturizer over it. Cant recommend highly enough!..And I am usually very critical of moisturizers..
Love it. It' goes on silky smooth and leaves my skin feeling soft. I like the soft fresh scent. I also like that that scent doesn't stick around for long after application.
I've used it on days when my skin was really dry and it was fine. I prefer something a bit more intense for those days, but for the most part I think you could probably use this every day of the year.
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.
