Product Review: Burt's Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser, B

It's product review time, friends! Today I'm reviewing one of the two products I received in a recent Burt's Bees BzzAgent kit - Burt's Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser. This kit came at a very opportune time...I just finished up my evening cleanser and was looking for another option with the cooler weather coming in!

Details from Burt's Bees:

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. Distinctly formulated with softening Cotton Extract to help skin replenish its outer layer and minimize the effects of potential irritants such as harsh soaps or cleansers, it also moisturizes with Rice Extract and soothes with Aloe. Naturally gentle and skin-friendly for daily use, it’s what every sensitive product should be.

* Softens and helps replenish skin's outer layer with Cotton Extract
* Gently removes dirt, oil and make-up without over drying or causing redness
* Formulated with Quillaja and Yucca Extracts to help remove impurities without stripping essential moisture
* Fragrance-free and hypo-allergenic
* Allergy-tested and dermatologist-tested

6 oz, retails for $10

My review:

The Good: This is a super rich cream cleanser that is incredibly gentle on the skin. It left my face very soft and well moisturized - a nice set up for night cream! I also really appreciate the natural ingredients and affordable price.

The Bad: You *really* have to rinse over and over again to ensure you don't leave any residue on your face. This took quite a bit of getting used to! Also, it isn't formulated extraordinary well to take off makeup.

The Verdict: This product earns a solid B. It's a rich cream cleanser - great for the colder months ahead. And for those with dry or sensitive skin, this could be your go to face wash!
