I took a shot on this because i was looking for a good natural intense night time moisturizer. I recently got my skin back to a good place with no breakouts.
I tried this and the next day my skin looked like hell. It was red and blotchy with numerous white heads and other acne. I mean this stuff is bad. A total waste of $18.00
i would not buy this again -- at all.
it did NOTHING to my skin, which sucks because it wasnt cheap. i would of paid that money with something more effective. plus the smell is very funky, ew. i really thought i would see atleast SOMETHING from this, but i hate it. i have better luck with Clinique's moisturizers.
I bought the radiance kit for about $15 at walmart, and I'm not too amazed with any of the products. Except I am fond of the bar soap, it mosturizers and brightens well. However, the day, night and eye cream are nothing special. First of all, I definately do not enjoy the smell, and it doesn't feel smooth when I apply them. They all are practically the same thing, I see no difference between them. Not mosturizing and not worth the price.
This has become my HG moisturizer.
I have combination skin. I love using this on my cheeks and chin. It keeps them moisturized throughout the day without breaking that area out. I avoid using thiso n my nose on forehead though. It is too rich for those areas. I have been using this for about 8 months and though it is a night cream- it is the perfect day cream for me.
If you have used anything by Burt's Bees before, then you aware that each product is strongly or uniquely fragrant and you either like it or you don't. I like the Baby Bee line, and have used some of their face creams in the past. I expected a big scent, but the night cream was totally different than I expected.
Opening the jar impressions: Shampoo is in here! Looks like shampoo, gooey and pearly colored. Smells like shampoo. Not some kind of naturally scented shampoo, but some kind of L'Oreal concoction. Not what I expect from Burt. Okay, if it works I can live with that.
It feels okay to use, but the moisture level is not there for me. I need something heavy duty and penetrating; this cream isn't quite it. If your skin is normal and you want something protecting for night time, and you don't mind heavy fragrance, then this is for you.
This is my HG for nighttime moisturizer. I have sensitive, acne prone, normal-to-dry skin, and this product makes my face feel so moisturized and refreshed right before going to bed. I sometimes have to use a little extra around my nose where my skin can become ultra dry, but so far it works. In the morning my face feels so incredibly soft that I can't help but touch my skin..hahaha. I've been using this product for a little over a month, and at the moment couldn't imagine using another nighttime moisturizer. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the packaging. The consistency is a little runny so getting the right amount of product out of the jar can become messy if you're not careful. About mold problems, I haven't had anything even remotely like that happen to my jar.
I am echoing other reviewers with this product that I initially really loved at first. At first I really loved the smell and moisturizing properties, my skin felt like the moisture was getting locked in and looked glowwy and "radiant" after application and in the morning. After a while I have started breaking out while using it and I haven't broken out for a very long time so I think it is either because of this orrrr it could be healing my skin and counteracting my acne preventative benzoyl peroxide too much. I'm not sure. Also when using this the skin around my hairline seemed to be more affected by the benzoyl peroxide because the moisturizer is too thin. It's a shame because I LOVE the smell and that it's all natural. I liked putting this on my lips as well. Also it didn't work well at all under my makeup because even after shaking it up it would ball up and peel off. Not a good look for me! And I know it's a night cream but I'm someone who believes you should be able to use a good cream for day or night. I also ran out of this really ridiculously fast. Only lasted about a month and a half? Oooh almost forgot, on the plus side I am not 100% sure but I think it did a little work to smooth out some fine lines around my mouth and forehead!
This cream is much lighter in consistency than some other night creams. It is slippery and kind of like a lotion trapped in a cream base. That said, seems to really moisturize my skin and give it a soft, dewy look. Will have to update in a few months to see what the long term benefits are. I am a little cautious, as lemon extract that this contains is a known skin irritant. So far so good for now.
After only having used this product for 2 weeks, I am in LOVE.
Every morning I wake up to evenly toned, moisturized and RADIANT skin. The price was a little more than I usually spend for moisturizer but after reading generally great reviews all over I decided to give it a shot. I like the little glass jar it comes in. The smell is pleasant and relaxing (even though my boyfriend swears I just doused myself in some Febreeze).
My only complaints would be that the product leaves my skin a little sticky/tacky...but who cares? I'm about to go to bed.
Occasionally I have to reapply but that probably has to do with the winter dryness I've been experiencing lately.
Really wanted to like this, especially since I generally like Burt's Bees products, but this night cream clogged all my pores and felt like a thick glue over my skin. What's the point of cleansing if you're just gonna smear this goo all over your face right after? And I used a tiny bit, maybe a dime-sized amount too. I've been using it for several weeks (and no improvement noticed on my skin!) and still have a whole bunch left since I paid nearly $20 for it and feel bad tossing it. But I've had enough, maybe it will work as a nice foot cream, but for my face, absolutely not! Definitely WON'T be purchasing again!!
