Review: Burt's Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser & Daily Moisturizing Cream

My entire family suffers from Sensitive Skin in one form or another which makes purchasing skin care products more difficult. I have used Burt's Bees products before and loved their Baby Shampoo Bar and the lip gloss. 

My facial wash of choice has been Alba Botanical Hawaiian Facial Wash and I love the fruity smell of this product, however the only downside to that is that fragrance is used. So when I got an email invite to participate in the Burt's Bees Sensitive Skin product campaign I was interested to see if this product would make me switch.




My favourite product from my kit ended up being the facial cleanser. After using this for two weeks I have adjusted from the nice fruity fragrance of the Alba product. In fact,I have decided that I will be switching to the to the Burt's Bees product. The smell in this product is a nice, light, natural scent that is refreshing in a non overpowering way. It really does smell like cotton, I even had a friend mention to me that the sample of the moisturizer I gave her reminded her of being in the cotton fields as a child. 

The cleanser sells for approx. $12.99 for a 170g bottle (website price). This is very reasonable to me, given that it is a natural product intended for sensitive skin from a well known brand. I also found that it only required a little amount to use, definitely a bonus that the bottle will last for a reasonable amount of time.


Some info on the cleanser:
This soap-free cream cleanser is clinically proven to moisturize sensitive skin while gently cleansing away dirt, oil and make-up without over drying or causing redness. 
  • Softens and helps replenish skin's outer layer with Cotton Extract
  • Gently removes dirt, oil and make-up without over drying or causing redness
  • Fragrance-free and hypo-allergenic
  • Allergy-tested and dermatologist-tested

Now, for the moisturizing cream, I must admit that my children have been using this more than I have. My kids love lotion but I think they liked this one as it had a neat pump dispenser. I used it a couple times when needed but didn't find that it was a unique enough product for me to justify the approx. $24.99 for a  50 g bottle(website price). It was easy to apply and worked well, so if you are looking for a nice, light product give this a try.


Info on the cream:
Clinically proven to moisturize sensitive skin all day without causing redness or irritation. Softens and helps replenish skin's outer layer with Cotton Extract
  • Moisturizes with Rice Extract
  • Does not cause redness or irritation
  • All day formula
