Burt's Bees Review

I was super excited when I got picked to review Burt's Bees new Sensitive Skin  facial cleanser and daily moisturizing cream. I have always had break outs and they are annoying and embarrassing, I am not in high school anymore, I just want clear skin. I also have sensitive skin, so finding the right product can be hard as well. 

I have tried the Burt's Bees cleanser and cream for over a week now. The first few days my skin felt really smooth.The cleanser takes some getting used to, as it does not really lather so that was weird. The great feelings only last a couple days though. My face broke out even more and using the cleanser and the cream made me feel like I was rubbing in double the lotion. The cleanser as I said does not lather so I feel like I am rubbing lotion into my face. Even after you rinse it off it feels as though there is a residue that is left behind. 

I did like the daily moisturizing cream, just not used in combination with the cleanser. My only complaint about the cream was that 3X the amount I need comes out, so I feel like I am wasting so much of it.  

Here are some facts about the products:
  • Cleanser is made with Cotton Extract
  • Soap free (Cleanser) and fragrance free(both)
  • Hypo-Allergenic (both)
  • Dermatologist tested (both)
  • Cleanser has rice extract to moisturize and aloe to soothe

So overall the Burt's Bees products did not work out well for me. I felt like I had a residue left on my skin and it did not help clear up my skin, but made it worse.I would recommend the daily moisturizing cream, but personally I can not recommend the cleanser. 

I received the above products for free for being a  Bzz Agent in exchange for my honest review. As you read above, those are my honest opinions of the products.
