Hey girl!

I have been a lover of any Burt's Bees products since I knew about them and tried some of their products. I just can't resist not to give it a try. Their use of all natural ingredients on every product was worth it. No regrets at all, only a burden in expenses. When I saw my favorite sampling site, Sample Room, offers sample size of Burt's Bees products, I didn't hesitate to grab some of them. I would love to get them all only if I still have available sampling points to spare. Nonetheless, I got these two sample products: Burt's Bees Soap Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream and Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Nourishing Facial Water

Burt's Bees Soap Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream

This cleansing cream is a restock product of Sample Room that is why I had a chance to read some reviews about it before I finally decided to get it. Most of the feedback I have read was positive. I am just excited to get this product to try it for myself.

What it contains:

Soap bark. It comes from the Quillaja saponaria. It is used as a cleansing agent.

Chamomile. It is reported to have an anti-inflammatory properties and soothing effects. It can help improve wound healing.

Aloe. It helps soothe and soften skin.

The 20 g sample tube is good enough to test this product. I am not sure about its scent but it definitely smells organic. I am not fan of the aroma though it has spa-vibe, relaxing scent. I also have an issue of its consistency and texture since I didn't foam. Even if I put a good amount of product in every wash, I didn't felt that my face was cleaned thoroughly. It is good for normal and combination skin type. It is also not drying on skin. I am just not sure if it really deeply cleanses my face because I don't feel like it. It is safe to know that Burt's Bees eliminated some added harsh foaming chemicals and combined organic ingredients only, but I think it is not as effective as the other facial cleanser. Since it is in cream form, it slips on to the face mildly even how much effort you gave in applying it all out to your face.

On the other hand, I gave a thumbs up on its superb cooling effect after every wash. By the way, it contains menthol too. Don't you try lather some of it near your eye area because it stings. It stings on the face in a good way but definitely not if it comes nearer to your eyes. After a while upon application, you will notice a stingy sensation. It cools up the face which felt good.

Overall Experience. It is a good try because of its relaxing aroma and soothing effect but I don't think I will purchase its full size. I don't feel like it deeply cleanses my face. Although it didn't dry my skin, I felt like some excess oils wasn't wash off thoroughly. I've been using little make-up on my face and I still don't feel like my face was squeaky clean. I wasn't disappointed with this product, it is still a good trial. I felt like it doesn't suit my needs. However, if you are into mild, relaxing cleanser, you might want to try this one.

Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Nourishing Facial Water

How many steps do you usually take on your daily skincare regimen? Personally, I take at least three and the most five steps. It is true that there's so much skin care products but we only have little time to put everything (or we are just too lazy). I have a good news. Here's another addition to our piling holistic skincare. It is Burt's Bees nourshing facial water. It was introduced years ago but I only knew about it recently. Aside from moisturizer, it gives a boost of hydration to skin.

Featured Ingredient: Clary Sage

It is infused with Clary Sage that has the ability to retain moisture. I believed this product is best for people with dry skin. It helps prepare the skin to gather moisture and further hydrate it. I got 3 sachets of 5ml each samples which is pretty decent amount to try but I can't validate its long term effects. It has mild, earthly scent. A little soak on a cotton ball covers the entire face. It is very gentle on skin. There's no stingy sensation at all. My skin is combination to oily type. There are times that there are dry patches even if I use moisturizer already. I think this product gives an extra hydration to my face. 

How intense? 

It is water-based but I don't feel like I am just putting water on my face. The skin looks really moisturize every after use. It absorbs fast and non-sticky. It doesn't make you look oilier. It also keeps the skin PH balance and improves its texture. It it use after cleansing and toning, and before applying moisturizer. 

Overall Experience. It is a great addition to the regimen. It does its own job in maintaining the moisture on my face. It liked that it was very gentle and light on skin. My skin is smoother and softer after every use.

Let's talk again on my next blog.
Yes, YOU lovely gorgeous.

Love yourself because you are beautiful.

Hugs and Kisses,
