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!!
Good stuff, my skin feels soft & fresh. When I apply it my skin feels firmer which is weird but kinda neat xD
For some reason it tends to irritate my skin...makes it feel burny.
Every winter I am faced with incredibly dry skin and chapped lips...I swear it all starts the day after I start using the heat in our house. My face feels like a piece of driftwood, and my lips get so bad that they bleed. I have become so used to it that it is literally just another crappy part of winter for me. Then, Burt's Bees buzzed in to save the day. I have been using their Radiance Night Creme now for 23 days, and I swear my skin is the softest, most moisturized, and most healthy-looking it has ever been! I have the day creme as well, but my skin just drinks up the night creme like it is some fantastic cocktail. I use it on my eyelids and under my eyes as well, and there is no irritation, and I never get clogged pores. Oh yeah, a big bonus to me is that it is made right in the USA (North Carolina). Thank you Burt's for changing the dreaded winters!!!
At first, I really like this night cream as it seems to give me a glow. But after a while, it clogged my pores and I broke out a bit for it. The worst thing is that the cream itself is very easy to turn bad. After 2 months of usage, it starts smelling funny and the texture changes too. Will not recommend this to anyone.
This cream has a very strong smell - it is a nice smell, but sooo strong! I don't like using it for this reason. My husband bought it because his face gets dry in the fall/winter, but I also don't like him to use it due to how pungent the smell is..I know they don't add extra fragrance to it so it must be the natural smell.
to me it's an OK cream. It does moisturize nicely but there are many other night creams I like better. It doesn't improve the texture of my skin at all, which I look for in a good night cream.
I AM IN LOVE! This night cream has made such a difference for my skin. Everymorning now I wake up with clear/radiant/even skintone skin. This has not only even'd out my skintone, it really give me life and radiance to my skin like the name says RADIANCE. This is definitely a HG for me. The texture made me question the product at first, is so sticky..thick..hard to spread out, but after 30 seconds or so is not sticky anymore at all. You have to spread it very quickly, than with the rest of the product on my hands I pad it on my neck. I love this product so much I use it during the day, until I purchase the daycream for this. The scent is abit strong, but I find it to be a pretty smell. Stick to it for a week and u will LOVE IT. I heart burt's bees.
UPDATE: ok. I've been using this for about 2 weeks now, I do still love it, but I seem to need to reapply a second coat of this few minutes after my first application. I'm not sure if my skin is very dry and just soaked it all up or what. Some reviewers have said is too oily for them and sits ontop of the skin, but it feels like there's nothing on my skin anymore a few minutes after first application. After second application is perfect, not really oily but just moisterized enough. I also purchased the day cream cause I liked the night one so much, and I only need one application of the day cream. So I'm not sure what the difference between the two is that I need a second coat of the night cream but they both work for me wonders.
