Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Products {#Review}

Burt's BeesBurt’s Bees ~ I’m pretty sure this may be more information than you want me to share, but I have extremely dry skin!  The real problem areas for me are my legs and feet, arms and hands and of course, my face.

The cold, dry and windy weather this time of year, combined with our wood stove running full tilt, certainly doesn’t help my dry skin situation.  I have a variety of creams, lotions and potions stashed in various places all over the house, as well as in my purse, coat pockets and car!

I was recently offered the opportunity to test some products from the Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration face care line.  The line includes:

This product line contains the herb, Clary Sage.  It is a remarkable botanical that thrives in its harsh environment because of its ability to retain moisture, is the inspiration behind Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration products. And with the harsh weather upon us, the itchiness, flaking skin and cracked hands and feet had reared their ugly heads, so I jumped at the opportunity!

The first product I tried was the Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser.

Burt's Bees 3When I opened the tube and gave the product a little sniff, it smelled fresh, clean and a bit herbaceous.  The  cleanser itself felt creamy, smooth and wasn’t gritty like some cleansers and it lathered nicely.  It removed all my make-up, rinsed easily and left my skin face feeling soft, hydrated and clean, there were no feelings dryness or tightness.

I also tried the Intense Hydration Night Cream.

Burt's Bees 2When I opened the jar, again I noticed the clean, fresh sage-like smell.   Like the cleanser the texture was smooth and creamy.  When I applied it to my face, it felt very light, adsorbed easily and left my skin feeling soft with no residual greasiness.

I am always looking for ways to be more environmentally friendly and I love that these products came with minimal packaging.  I did some research and discovered Burt’s Bees use packaging with the highest levels of Post Consumer Recycled (PCR) materials and the packaging is designed to be recyclable and have the lowest impact on the environment possible.

Another tremendous company commitment that I love is the preservation of the rights of both humans and animals.  Burt’s Bees, commit to the highest standards of free trade and working conditions in the sourcing of their products and they never test their ingredients or products on animals.

Would I use these products again, most definitely!  And at $12.99 CAD for the Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser and $29.99 CAD for the Intense Hydration Night Cream I found these products to be very affordable.
