Product Review: Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Cream, B

Intense hydration, you say? The Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Bzz Campaign could not have come at a better time. Why, you ask? Well, Saturday and Sunday, Chicago experience some gorgeous weather - upper 60s and 70s. And then Monday...30s. This morning? It snowed. So, it's fair to say that my skin isn't super happy with the changes.

However...I am quite pleased that I've been hydrating via Burt's Bees! One product in particular has been super helpful for those stubborn dry patches on my cheeks - Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Night Lotion. You can score this thick, creamy face cream for roughly $18 (1.8 ounces).

Info via DermStore: 

Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Night Cream moisturizes, softens and soothes dry, wrinkled and aging skin while you sleep. This rich lotion improves moisture retention while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Clary sage promotes skin cell regeneration to rejuvenate your complexion. Soybean oil reduces blotchiness to improve the skin tone without irritating the skin.

My Review:

The Good: Oh thick goodness. If your skin is parched, this cream will quench it. It's smooth, the scent is definitely sage-y and the aftereffects weren't overly congested.

The Bad: If your skin gets clogged easily, I doubt this would fare well for you as it is fairly thick. While it does blend into the skin, there's certainly a bit of a film left from the cream.

The Verdict: B from me. This cream definitely lives up to its promises - it delivers hydration to your dermis. My skin looked supple and hydrated after just a few days of use!
