I'm pretty happy with this night cream- its nothing particularly special but it gets the job done well. I bought it about a year ago but didn't really touch it until recently and I believe I got it for $17 which is much better than my old night cream which was $42 for the same amount. I do like that it is the only natural moisturizer that actually sinks into my skin as opposed to just sitting on my face and eventually peeling off. I was actually shocked when I saw reviews saying that this is thick cream cause let me tell you, I have tried more creams than I can count on my hands and toes and this is probably one of the thinnest. I have dry, dehydrated skin and I find that is perfectly moisturizing during the spring months but maybe not enough for winter. I probably would buy this again since it seems to do a solid job but it might not be the first one I grab. Would recommend.

Unfortunately, I couldn't get past the scent...as someone else put it, "waxy." Boo. I really HATE wasting any products and tried to use this a few more times before tossing it. It does moisturize, relatively quick absorbing, and it's inexpensive, so if you can get past the scent, I would say this is a decent inexpensive option.

I am always extremely hesitant to try new skin products, mainly because my skin is unpredictable and will break out. Unfortunately the $60 price tag of my Origins Mega Mushroom face cream was just too much for me, so I decided to switch to a drugstore brand. After much trepidation, I purchased the $15 Burt's Bees radiance night cream. I am very happy with this product for three reasons. 1) The price ($15) is much better than $60. 2) Burt's Bees is a brand that is known for using natural products 3) The results are great. My dry, winter skin is moisturized and I wake up with radiant looking skin. I also have not broken out after 6 nights of using this.
I think the trick to making this product work is not using too much. I just dab about 4-5 dots on my face and then spend about 30 seconds to a minute rubbing it in. If I spend a little extra time really working it into my skin, my face does not feel greasy at all.

Actually I am not sure if I would really buy it again. It smells good and is a nice moisturizer, but I don't think it does more than moisturize your skin. I never saw any difference after using for 4 months, except that my skin was softer (I never used any moisturizer before that).

It is very thick, creamy and moiturizing! It makes my skin feel so soft and happy and I really do enjoy it. I feel like it rejuvinates my combination skin during the night. I love it!

This caused some major skin breakout. Large zits and whiteheads; blackheads around the nose area.
Ever since Clorox has taken over, BB products seem to be deteriorating just so rapidly. :(

The heavier, night version of the Radiance Day Cream. It's intensely moisturizing, rich, creamy, with the same 'whipped' consistency. As with the Day Cream, I swear I can see the 'radiance' they talk about, although it could just be a psychological thing from the name. Regardless, it's a wonderful night cream! I wake up with baby soft skin.

I'm a huge fan of Burt's Bees products, but this one fell very flat with me. I have oily skin, but for some reason this sounded like a good idea when I was shopping in target. This is a really thick, heavy cream that just sat on my skin. I couldn't rub it in and the cream never fully absorbed into my skin. I literally woke up and still had glitter all over my face from the cream the night before. And on top of that, I also had huge red pimples to greet me in the morning. Never. again.

Felt great on my face when applied.. But now my skin looks oily ever since i started useing this product. not ok! and the price sucks for the small amount you get.

I'm not sure if I would buy this again, it's expensive for as little amount as you get. It feels good on my skin and I LIKE the smell. However, I think it clogs my pores some if I use it every night and then I break out. I prefer Albolene by far! And Albolene is cheaper and you get a ton more of it for the price. Albolene is a cream cleanser than moisturizes. If I use BB Radiance Night Creme every night my skin gets kinda oily. I am prone to acne and damaged skin though. I would maybe buy it again but probably not for a long time. It's hard to get every last bit out of the jar.

Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Neutral Hair: Red, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Blue
fair, slightly freckled/scarred, acne-prone, combination, and sensitive, from use on an AHA, BHA, Retin-A, Taz, and occasional TCA peels (gotta love fryin your face off! ;)
normally when i need a moisturizer i use a night creme with hydroquinone in it, to help fade some scars and freckles that i have. but sometimes it just isnt hydrating enough, so i need something more to help me combat flakies.
my husband and i both use this (he was actually the 1 that picked this out), and he seems to like it. i, however, find that it has too much fragrance for sensitive skin. when my skin's sensitive it stings a very little bit when i 1st put it on (and i've had other night cremes that didnt do this, so i know its not just me). but i never get any reddness or itching, and the stinging goes away really quickly. i wish that this was a bit more soothing though, so i wont rebuy when i run out-- i'll just try something else. however, i rated it as a "yes" to rebuy, as it really is a good night creme, just not 100% for my particular needs.
i changed this to "no" for re-buy, i just dont like the added fragrance, and this is not quite soothing enough for how i want a nightcreme to be.

Hmm. I like the packaging, and the texture isn't bad, but that's about it. The scent is oddly cloying -- caramel-y and flowery. It just doesn't seem very effective, either. I used it for a few months, then switched to something else.

I purchased this product on a whim and then headed on to MakeupAlley to read reviews. I was a little apprehensive due to most feedback about the bad smell or making people break out but I'm happy to report I've had a positive reaction. I didn't mind the smell of it at all, it has an almost lemon smell to it that disappears once I've put it on my face and I even asked my boyfriend if my face smelt bad when I had it on one night.
The cream has definitely helped in making my skin feel much smoother but I'm not so sure about making it "radiant" and I haven't had any comments from other people on my skin or any changes. I'm finding it a good basic night time moisturiser for smooth, soft skin and am pleased that I only need a pea sized amount to cover my face. The texture is a little odd, can't really explain it but once I have it on it feels like I have nothing on at all. I can see it lasting me a long time which is a bonus with the price.

I started using this because my mom bought it for herself, used it once, and immediately went back to Clinique (her favorite brand)
I don't think this is bad, it does its job of moisturizing well. There's something really odd about it though...the texture is slightly tacky, the sheen of the actual cream is a little too plastic and off putting, and the smell...well, I don't mind the floral waxy smell, but what's the point of adding fragrance? As for radiance...it does actually leave a slight pearly glow to your face after you apply, and it looks great!
I won't repurchase because it's just your typical moisturizer, it adds nothing new to the table. If you're looking to transition to natural skincare BB is a good start, but there's honestly better brands out there.

This cream was just OK. It was really heavy, which is good for the winter time, but not good for me during the summer. Overall, I have used better night time products in the past and would not get this again.

I don't even know if this cream is good for the skin, but this had the strongest, most intolerable (at least for me) scent I have ever smelled in my life.. almost made me want to throw up. I needed a new night cream and while I was in Target, I decided to give it a try... BIG MISTAKE. I don't even understand why Burt's Bees would put fragrance in a natural product in the first place.. As soon as I put it on top of my skin, the smell was just OMG. The texture was also kind of slippery and greasy, which was not what I was expecting. I washed it off immediately and returned it the next day. If you are the kind of person who can handle a really disgustingly heavy and artificial fragrance, give it a try, but for me the smell was just too much.

I LOVED the original radiance night cream for all the reasons people have listed as being negative qualities, the liquid like consistency, the scent, and the really light coverage. I noticed a huge change with my complexion, the tone became more even, my redness and dark circles diminished, and my skin became so soft. HOWEVER, they have recently reformulated the product in order to conform to international natural product standards and I don't like the changes. It is thick, really creamy, and really saturates the skin. I realize most would find this to be an improvement but personally I'm really disappointed cause I've used this product for so long that I didn't want to change. I would give the new product a chance if the scent wasn't so offensive, to me it has a rather plastic like odor. Since I've only used the new product once I can't comment on weather or not it would give the same results to my skin as it once did.

Ick. I saw this at Whole Foods and as I'm always searching for the HG night/ day cream, I figured it was worth a try. I don't like the smell, it's slimy, and it leaves a sticky residue so I couldn't wear it under makeup. Definitely won't repurchase!

I got a sample size of this product (7g in a little glass jar!) as part of a Burt's Bees gift set. Now, I normally love Burt's Bees products (I'm kind of obsessed at the moment) but this one was horrible.
I applied it to freshly washed skin and, once I had finished applying it, it felt really strange. Like it was just sitting on top of my skin... but not in a way that is typical to a bad moisturizer. The feeling was similar to the feeling of having egg whites on your skin, like it was just sitting on my skin, drying up, and causing a tight feeling as a result. I then went to touch my face and... oh my god! It started balling up like crazy! So I went to wash it off and as soon as I wet my face, the water turned white and creamy. Awful, awful.
I've been reading up reviews on this product in hope of finding an experience similar to mine, but no luck. I must have recieved a bad batch or something.
The glass jar it came in is awesome, though.
