This product is excellent as a night cream but not as a day cream. I have both, and the real night cream is a bit heavier, so I mix the two. Because it's made of royal jelly and beeswax, it's a bit too heavy for daytime use. I leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft and the scent is not very noticeable. It is on the pricey side though. I would buy again because I did see results with it compared to other creams in the same price range.
Ok this is originally 17.99 but I got it for 4.00 from Walgreens recently as they are no longer going to carry the burt's bees products...but i would not pay 17.99 for this.
Its a great moisturizer BUT i would NOT use it as a DAY cream...its a much better night cream because it is extremely sticky and takes longer to absorb into my skin. But when I wake up the next morning my skin is super soft and glowing. I have combination skin and this has not broken me out at all, in fact my skin looks smoother.
I have heard a lot of complaints about people finding mold in the container so once i bought this i put it in the fridge and when i use it i make sure my hands are clean and i only dip my fingers into the jar once so i dont put any resident bacteria from my face into the jar.
I would not buy this product again because i don't think its worth 17.99 considering the hassle i have to go through to make sure mold doesn't grow in it & because i thought it would be a day cream but is much to thick and sticky for that. However, I rated it as a 4 because it makes my skin glow and feel/appear smoother in texture. continued >>
I have a normal skin complexion- I actually used this at night. I don't like the thick, heavy feeling on my face in the daytime when I'm moving around a lot and start to develop sweat. I don't like the fact that it comes in a jar, but that's just not MY preference. I liked the smell though! I passed this over to my boyfriend who has acne prone skin and he seems to like it!
Been using this for a couple of weeks now. Its ok I guess, moisturises enough, but one major con about it is the stickiness. Its kinda heavy on my skin, even though I use it sparingly. It makes my skin feel like I've got too much foundation on or something, it sits heavily on my skin. Too bad, I like the smell and the promises of radiance and royal jelly goodness and all that.
Iíve been addictively trying to find safer skin care and makeup product since last year. I did a lot of research on Skindeep and other sites. I like the fact that this product contains mostly natural ingredients. But after I put this on, I find it is very shinny and sticky on face (maybe that is why it claims that it is radiant?). The worst is that it makes my make up stayed on top and uneven. I think it is because it is sticky, specially on cheeks, then looks like the foundation gathered in that area. I am using EM mineral foundation, I donít know if it will be better when you use a liquid foundation. Iíll use this at night only just so that I do not waste my money.
I really love this and have been using it for at least a year. It does not break out my very acne prone (though 33 year old) skin. Hurrah! Makes me wonder about all those chemicals in supposedly non-comedogenic products, and why they always cause problems for me. The couple of times I've strayed to try something new I have always come back.
I was using carrot day cream for years, just emptied the third jar. Got a bit bored with it and wanted to try radiance cream. I bought another carrot cream too just in case. If everything goes well I'll probably continue using both, switching them after the jar has finished.
I like the smell. It's lot more runny that carrot cream, sinks better and moisturizes well. My face really looks radiant and spotless today,
Smell lingered for the first hour, then it disappeared so it doesn't mix with my perfume, what's a good thing.
This cream a more expensive than carrot day cream, still not sure if it's worth it since I just started using it. So far so good. No cons.
way too heavy and greasy for my liking. Cant question that it is moisturizing. My face looks like an oil slick
This is not an ideal cream for day time, even for skin as dry as mine (AHA, lactic). The heavy lavender/rose scent is embarassing for me as it can be lingering during the day. Even a thin layer will cause the foundation to slide & appeared uneven; and it takes at least 15 minutes or more for it to sink it., that is for those who has the time in the morning. Personally I don't find much difference between this and the night cream. continued >>
I love BB, but not this product. I bought this due to the "Radiance" name. Hey, who can't use a little more "Radiance", right? The smell was nice, but be warned this is highly fragranced, and that should have been a big red flag for someone like me with somewhat sensitive, fair, break-out prone skin. But it smelled pretty...and I wanted to be Radiant! After about a week of using this, I started noticing my skin felt "rough"...little bumps had developed on my skin that were only visible in certain light. Then the "bumps" grew larger. They were clogged pores. Even after ceasing to use the product, the little bumps stayed and it required a trip and a prescrip. to the derm's office and it took months to get my skin back to normal. I can't say for certain that it was this cream that caused it, but....I'm pretty sure. From now on - nothing highly fragranced will go on my face again.
