Scrubs -Burt's Bees - Peach and Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub

This reminds me of the old Aapri Apricot Scrub. The exfoliating granules are way to large and abrasive. It is hard to rinse off. I have to use another cleanser to get it off, which is ok. Does not just rinse off. In my opinion, it's just not effective. Maybe as a cleansing cream minus the granules it would be a good makeup remover, but that's it. Of course I love that it is natural, and appreciate Burts Bees sticking to their guns by staying natural. The fragrance is nice. At least the packaging keeps your fingers out. It was used and now sits in my closet with my other disappointments.
I mirror the other reviewers sentiments on this product. This stuff if Awesome! I was completely and pleasantly surprised. No conditioner needed, no straw hair, no hard time rinsing out like other SLS-free shampoos, and absolutely no drying or tangles!! I am trying to get away from using products in plastic, and JR Liggett even hits the jackpot with that! I bought the 'Damaged Hair Formula' because I was afraid it would turn my hair to straw like Burt's Bee's liquid shampoos do, but I had nothing to worry about. If you are on the fence about this stuff, get off and buy it!
Lotions/ Creams -Burt's Bees - Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme

This is my fave "treatment" hand cream. I only use this at night, at bedtime. It is a very heavy cream that smells great. I don't recommend for day use. Your hands will be oily, but, leave it on overnight while you sleep and it will work wonders. Before I discovered this cream, my hands would crack and bleed from Northeastern winters. No more with this. One jar lasts me the winter.

I've tried brands of sulfate free shampoo, like Burt's Bees and Jason Natural, but I had a hard time getting them to completely rinse out. It does not help that I have long hair. This is the first sulfate free shampoo I did not have that problem with. The smell is fine, it lathers very nicely, and works great without using the matching conditioner. No straw hair after shampooing either. I will probably buy again.
