I received this product to try as a Bzz Agent along with the sensitive skin daily lotion.
I feel more comfortable using this cleanser in the morning, when I don't have any makeup or major dirt & oil to clean. The cleanser is thick, with no fragrance or color, which I like. It also leaves my skin feeling moisturized, without stripping it or making it feel dry.
I tried using this product at night, after a long grimy day of makeup and the usual dirt and oil. I felt as though it cleansed the surface only and was left with mascara around my eyes.
Overall I think this is a great cleanser but not for days when deep heavy duty is needed, unless combined with a light scrub.
Having very sensitive, dry skin I am very wary to try new skin products. Getting itchiness, little bumpy rashes and my face all swollen in the past with the wrong products has caused my fear. That being said I decided to try the new Burts Bees cleanser with cotton and I'm very happy I did. It causes no issues but not only that, it cleans well, leaves my skin feeling moisturized, plump and just "normal". A previous reviewer said it was too thick and did not like it because it took awhile to wash off but I actually love the thick feeling. I spread it on and massage it in well and then wipe off with my washcloth. I follow with my cetaphil bar soap which has been a long time staple for me that works well. Thank you Burts Bees for making a true cleanser for sensitive skin!
I am a BzzAgent and received this product doing this Bzz campaign for Burt's Bee's Sensitive Skin Care. I received this and the moisturizer.
I have been using this for about 3 days now and I love it! It is very thick and a little goes a long way. I use about a quarter size dab and it does what it says. It removes my makeup, oil, dirt and doesn't dry out my skin. I am always skeptical to try out new products because I have dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin. I fear of breaking out, but this so far has really helped my skin. It hasn't broke me out and has actually made my skin look and feel better than before. I love that the ingredients are natural and its not scented. The person below me said it was thick and hard to wash off. I will agree with that. It is thick and takes a bit to wash off. So, if you don't like thick cleansers this isn't the product for you. I happen to like it though. It costs $9.99 which is a great price considering the ingredients and the amount of product it contains.
If you have sensitive skin, this is definitely worth trying out! I think it might just be my new HG cleanser!
UPDATE: I wanted to post an update since I have been using this cleanser for a couple of months now. I still really like it. It does make my skin look great and I haven't been having breakouts...however, I had to stop use of the moisturizer due to the cold weather drying out my skin and it not being quite moisturizing enough. And now I'm starting to wonder if maybe this might be making my skin dry as well. My skin has never been so dry in the colder months in the past but it sure is now. I'm thinking that maybe it could be this cleanser. I might stop using it for a while and see if that makes a difference in the dryness.

***************************************************************************************************I got this from Bzzagent to try and review. I tried this tonight after a long day at work. It comes in a large squeeze plastic recyclable tube. The texture is smooth and thick. I have acne prone combination skin so I'm a bit skeptical on how this would clean my face. I had on a tinted sunscreen, powder, non waterproof mascara, waterproof eyeliner, and lipstick. I had a little bit of difficulty rinsing this off my face with warm water. I'd say I rinsed for a good 2 minutes, which is kind of long for rinsing! After rinsing, I looked in the mirror and noticed some cleanser still around my nostrils. Even though it did not rinse clean, I guess it felt nice and smooth. Most of my make up came off. The waterproof eyeliner was a little challenging but it was about 85% removed. My skin feels comfortable, but I'm sure there is some residue left if I used a toner to finish it off. No fragrance detected. No redness nor tightness. It is said to be allergy tested, soap free, non-comedogenic, dermatologist-tested, and hypo-allergenic. This would work for me in the winter most likely. Now that I am in my forties, I can't deal with cleansers that over stripping my skin. I might need to use a separate eye make up remover before using this. It would also probably work better in the shower. The reason I would not repurchase is because it's really too thick. A cleansing milk may work better for me.
