I live in NW iL, about an hour from the windy city and every fall my battle with dry skin begins. Sometimes I win, but most times I'm just trying to keep up with it. I have tried many products in the past to help combat this issue and I can't remember the last time I met with such promising results just from one night's use. Needless to say I was really excited to get into this campaign, 1. Because I am a huge fan of Burt's Bees and 2. I had no idea this product line existed under their brand. Once I received the kit yesterday, I couldn't wait to get into it, and boy was I glad, the box was loaded with goodies, and I decided to try it the very night. I used the cleanser, which let me tell you is such a smooth cleanser not gritty at all and very ( for lack of a better word ) cleansing. It was so soft on my face and I loved the fact that I was using an almost completely natural product to get the job done. Next I proceeded to slather on the face mask, it has this rich unctuous feel to it without being cloyingly greasy and after I took it off, I could definitely tell that there was a marked improvement in the texture of my skin. It lost it's stiff dry feeling and felt so soft , I do not have too many fine lines per se but what was there was definitely more subtle. The soothing scent was just the icing on the cake. Time for my last step of the night, the night cream. I hate going to bed with what I call "goop on my face" and thankfully this did not feel like goop. It disappeared into my skin and I hardly felt like I had any cream on my face. I was so glad that it was not one of those oily creams and it went on smoothly and effortlessly. This morning when I woke up, my skin felt so moisturized and soft , and it's definitely on the path to mend. This product is so effective that I know my old ( no pun intended ) dry skin is definitely a thing of the past.
Was so light it did not feel as if I had just pit on lotion. It also did not leave any after-feeling on my face such as being greasy or lotion-like film. True to it's name it did not dry out or feel as if my skin became dry after wearing the night cream. Night 1- so far so good
I wanted to try Burt's Bees products for years. Yet with the price which is competitive is still more then I wanted to spend as I was still leary as I have sensitive skin and Rosacea. I received my products yesterday and thought here goes, hope I don't break out. First I tried the cream cleanser, silky smooth and a soothing scent. Next I tried the treatment mask which is left on 10-15 minutes before removing with a tissue. My skin absorbed it, leaving nothing to tissue off, even though I tried to tissue it off. Again the same scent, which didn't even bother my alleries as it is not perfume smelling. My face felt so smooth, soft and hydrated not so tight looking. Forehead wrinkles not so intense looking. I did notice my skin slightly red. At night I again used the cream cleanser followed by the night cream which is heavier but not greasy. A different scent but not a perfume or flower scent. This morning my face was not broke out from using the products and redness gone. This morning I used the cleanser followed by the day lotion with was a sample size. It was light and not greasy. The redness was more intense this morning, which I think maybe from the cleanser. I will continue to see if my skin will adjust to the products calming the redness. My skin actually feels amazing! I have tried many products for dry skin and yet to find anything that feels this good. Most products feel good when applied then a couple of hours my skin returns to looking dry, dull and tight.
I was SO excited to get my Burt's Bees package in the mail yesterday. I was even more excited to see so many samples to hand out! Handing out coupons is always nice, but to hand out a sample along with the coupon is WAY better! I tried the night cream last night. I was very impressed. It did not leave me with that greasy feeling and the smell of the cream was quite pleasant. I only smelled it while the cream was drying, I could not smell it the following morning. So far, I am very impressed! My skin is usually dryer during the winter, so we will see how this works.
Santa Ana winds started here in Southern California last Friday by Saturday my throat was dry no matter how much water I would drink...Hair was dry, Face was so dry it literally hurt I had to keep lotioning my entire body! Around 1pm the fed ex man delivered my package of Burts Bees hydration products!!!! WOW....What can I say? It helped dramatically....perfect timing bzzagent, perfect timing!
I wasn't sure I would like the scent on this, but it's AMAZING! I have tried the different items we got. The only thing I would want to have had is the day cream. The people I hand out the samples to have it but I think that should have been part of the package since that is the first thing someone would want to use and then you could give an actual review of it. But the products are just wonderful. I love the feel of it! It was perfect for my dry skin.
I started by handing out the coupon samples to my lady co-workers and some family members. I explained that I was a Bzzagent and trying the Burt's Bees hydration line. The feedback was great! Every lady that tried it loved it and some said that their husbands loved it too. I found the cleanser to be just okay. It didn't remove my makeup well, but I loved the texture and gentleness of the product. The mask was perfect and I'm addicted to it! Most people only think of snowy weather skin being dried and affected by winter, but, here in the desert it's a double dryness attack and the mask was perfect for my face. It left my face hydrated and radiant without irritation or a breakout. The nighttime cream was no disappointment either. It moisturized my super sensitive skin without causing my face to breakout. The scent of these products is slightly off-putting at first and a couple other ladies said the same. But, with results like this, it's easy to forget. Overall, these products all exceeded my expectations. I fully expected for it to b oily and greasy and cause my face and neck to breakout. But, it was gentle, long lasting and effective.
This is my 2nd review since starting the product. So far not so good anymore. I have broken out on my face more then I have in a while. My cheek and my forehead. I was never one to really break out, even as a teenager. I won't be using this product anymore. Not sayin it's bad for everyone,it just doesn't work for me. My skin is sensitive and I need 100% natural and no fragrance products. I hope other agents are having better luck!
I have been using the products since receiving them and am very happy with the way my face looks and feels. I have to say I did not like the consistency of the moisturizers at all to start. As soon as I put it on my face it felt thick and almost a glue like feel. In just a few moments however the moisturizer seemed to break down and actually plump up my skin and provide a real softness. I am really happy too with the natural ingredients as it is really good to know I am not having chemicals and harsh products do the work. I am really happy with the products altogether and the end results.
I love the feel of my skin now that I have used the day and night lotion Intense Hydration line from Burt's Bee. I have noticed the fine lines fading around my eyes and my cheeks are smooth and suble.
