From time to time I get free products to sample and review from a company called Bzz Agent. I was really happy to receive my latest shipment from Burt's Bees. I really like Burt's Bees products and this recent shipment did not disappoint. I was given two products from the Intense Hydration line to sample: the cleanser and night cream.
I am really picky about cleansers. They have to be strong enough to remove waterproof eyeliner and mascara but not dry out or irritate my sensitive skin. I was very happy to find that this particular cleanser is rich, creamy, non-drying and easily removes my makeup. The addition of clary sage lends a lovely gentle scent. This cleanser does not lather, but I have learned that ingredients that lather are ingredients that are usually the most drying to skin.
This time of year I cannot moisturize my skin enough. The night cream is very thick and rich but does not feel greasy on my skin at all. In fact, it absorbs very quickly so I can even use it under my makeup to give a nice, smooth base. I have found with regular use of this night cream I have not had to exfoliate with a separate AHA cream like I usually do in the winter.
I have shared samples with a few friends and all of them have reported they love how fast the cream absorbs and that it does not feel greasy at all, despite how moisturizing it is. They all liked the lovely light herbal scent.
If your skin reacts badly to winter you might want to try the Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Line out for yourself.
