Did you know Burt’s Bees was created in 1984 in Maine, USA by beekeeper Burt Shavitz and entrepreneur Roxanne Quimby? The two began selling candles made from the beeswax created as a by-product of Burt's honey business and quickly developed the original Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm, which remains the brand’s best selling product today.
There are ingredients that you will never find in any Burt's Bees product. The entire product portfolio contains:
- No parabens
- No petrochemicals
- No phthalates
- No silicones
- No artificial colours
And of course, Burt’s Bees never conducts product or ingredient tests of any kind on animals – they are Leaping Bunny Approved. A few of their products contain ingredients derived from animals such as beeswax, royal jelly and milk
Recent reviews on Burt's Bees products
It looks like a moisturiser (thick and creamy) and has little to no fragrance. It feels a lot like a moisturiser too, but it 'dissolves' in the water and glides on the skin so smoothly. While my skin is still damp after using this I can feel it still - like there's a little left. However, when I dry my skin the feeling goes away.
I used this product after a makeup remover to remove any residual products, oils, and dirt. It doesn't remove make-up well on its own. I have normal to dry skin and this cleanser did the job gently while also moisturising.
I would recommend this product for cleansing in the morning to start the day or after make-up remover at night. If you're looking for any foaming action or heavy duty cleansing, unfortunately this product isn't for you.
If you're looking for a gentle, refreshing, moisturising cleanser, then I would definitely recommend this product.
