So the 2 products that I am trying out are from the new sensitive skin line. I am trying out the facial cleanser and the daily moisturizing cream.
This post is just going to be a little info on each product and my initial thoughts about the products. Once I have used them for a while I will do a full review follow up post.
The products from the sensitive line contain 99% natural ingredients, such as cotton, rice and aloe. They are formulated to cleanse and moisturize sensitive skin without causing redness or irritation.
The facial cleanser is a soap-free cleaner and is clinically proven to moisturize while gently cleansing away dirt, oil and makeup. Retail cost is $9.99 for a 6 oz. bottle.
The daily moisturizer contains rice extract to moisturize and aloe to soothe. It is non-comedogenic, which means it won't clog your pores. Retail cost is $14.99 for a 1.8 oz. bottle.
The great thing about these products containing cotton extract is that it helps to moisturize the skin, while increasing the softness and suppleness of skin. It improves the skins barrier function and helps to maintain the skin's naturals moisture. Cotton extract also helps to even out skin tone.
My opinion on the facial cleanser is that it's okay. I'm used to using a cleanser where I can massage it on to my face then remove it with a wet cloth. The Burt's Bees cleanser is different, you will need to wet your face the apply the cleanser then rinse it off with water. I have used this a couple of times and I can't seem to remove all of my make up with this cleanser. I will continue to use it and see if my opinion of it changes.
I really enjoy the moisturizing cream. It comes in a really cute pump bottle. I feel that it is really excellent at moisturizing my skin. The only con that I can think of is that it does not contain SPF, which is something I like for my facial moisturizer to have.
The scent of these products is quite nice too. It has a really clean scent.
I will continue to use the products, and like I said before, give a full final review later on. If you have any questions about these products that I did not cover feel free to leave a comment down below.
