Overall I'm pretty impressed with this product. It's not a miracle worker, but I wasn't expecting it to be. I have some cellulite though I am not overweight and work out regularly. I was searching for a product that might help, but I prefer natural and organic, so i was excited to find this. I've been using it for about a month and I do see improvement. Also my skin has become really soft and smooth. I did use the bottle up quickly as I was using it twice as a day as it recommends. I would repurchase, but might use more sparingly to make it last longer.
Love this product. I have horomonal acne, I couple weeks ago I started breaking out really badly and nothing seemed to be helping. My skin is normally oily but my regular acne cleansers were just drying my face and making my acne worse. I found this at a health food store and decided to start trying more natural products to help my skin. It was expensive, but I was hopeful. I could see a difference within two days of using it. A week later, my breakout has almost cleared up completely. I use it as a cleanser and also a mask. It really helps with redness and acne marks. Recommended from problem skin, this is amazing.
I have tried a number of products for KP and this one works the best for me. It hasn't made it go away completely, but I would say the bumps and redness have been reduced significantly, probably by 75% at least. Pricey, but worth it, as it's the only thing i've found that's made a difference.

I like this product but had problems with the packing. I found the brush it comes with to be completely useless and wasn't able to even use it. I just used a makeup sponge instead and it worked a lot better. My main complaint is the packaging is not durable, i put the compact in my bag to take to work and the top tore off after only a few days so now I can't take it anywhere. I understand it's a "green" product and I'm all about using recycled and reusable products but for the price of the item, i would expect something a little more high quality. Apart from that, I do like the makeup, it covers well, and it hasn't make me break out which a lot of powders I've tried have, so I'm happy about that. My skin is usually very oily and shiny by the end of the day, but when I have put this on it seems to stay problem free. I would repurchase again, but just be more careful about carrying it around with me.

This has become one of my favorite Burt's Bees products. I have horrible dry skin and red bumps and patches that i couldn't seem to get rid of using other moisturizers. This lotion has worked incredibly well in giving me soft skin again. It's natural, and I actually really like the smell.
I really like this product, I love the smell and I find it thick but not unpleasantly greasy. I have only been using it for a few weeks but it seems to working quite well so far.
I am not too impressed with this product. The one good thing is that it hasn't made me break out, which some moisturizers do. Unfortunately it leaves a strange sticky residue on my face that I can feel for a long time afterwards, even after putting makeup on, that makes me feel like I want to wash my face again. I have had good results with other Juice Beauty products, but this is something to do without.
I tried this toner for the first time about a year ago, but stopped using it because i felt it was making my skin feel dry and tight. I really wanted to like it, because I loved the fresh smell and the overall appearance of the bottle is quite nice. But I was breaking out quite a bit and didn't feel the toner was helping the situation. Recently I started using it again, and it seems to working much better. I have very problematic skin and experience a lot of breakouts. I have been using the Burt's Bees Deep Cleansing Cream and then the toner, and the combination of the two is working for me.

I got this lotion as a gift for christmas and wasn't too impressed with it initially...i generally like most of the Burt's Bees products, but this had a strange smell and didn't work too well as a moisturizer. But I followed the advice of the previous poster who used it as a hair treatment and found it really works! It smoothes out my hair and makes it soft and shiny and i don't even need to use any other hair products in it. Quite impressed!
I want to express my concern for this product. I have to say, I have suffered from acne all of my life; I have always, and still do continue to struggle in finding a cleanser that will help my constant breakouts. In that regard, this product actually does help clearing my skin. However I have discontinued use of this product and will urge anyone else to please NOT use it, as there are some very questionable and possibly toxic ingredients in it. The active ingredient is Triclosan, a possible carcinogenic chemical that can lead to cancer. There is information about about this chemical and the effects of it on the internet if you want investigate further for yourself. I understand how finding an acne solution is top priority for a lot of people (myself included) but don't risk your health for clear skin!!!
