Review: Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Face Care.
Let me start off by saying I got these product to try for free from BzzAgent, but that my opinions are entirely my own and honest.
While I do love these products I do have a couple issues with them that I will get to in a minute. First off, holy scnhikeys do I love these products, There are day and night creams, a cream cleanser and a treatment mask. There's also an eye cream but I didn't get to try that. These products are 99% all natural and are inspired by clary sage, a plant known for it's ability to adapt to harsh climes and retain moisture. Ooh Ooh, I didn't tell you the best part...the day and night lotions and eye cream also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles!
They are so super hydrating, it's amazing. The cleanser leaves your skin feeling soft and fresh,the day and night creams are smooth as silk and make your face feel that way as well. The treatment mask is for when you feel that your skin is really dry and in need of repair because lovelies let me tell you, it works hard.
Now onto the issues I had with these products. The first issue is a general issue with all the products and that is the smell. It's not unpleasant by any means, it's just too strong for my taste. While I love really intensely fragranced body lotions I prefer my facial care products to have a lighter scent. That being said I adore the way the product works so well I can overlook that little snafu.
The other problem I had is with the treatment mask. No one else had this problem but me so maybe my face was already moisturized enough that I didn't need to use the mask. After you are don't with the mask you wipe it off and smooth the rest into your skin like a lotion. The problem that I had was that it felt really heavy and when I ran my fingers over my cheek to scratch an itch the product actually came up and sort of rolled into a little ball...slightly icky.
The only drawback I could see anyone having aside from my personal issues is that each product costs 18 dollars, except the treatment mask which only costs 10.
I might update with pictures of how smooth my skin looks so look for those.
