Review: Burt’s Bees Sensitive Cotton Extract Cleanser & Moisturiser

I was lucky enough to be selected from the Burts Bees UK Facebook page to trial the brands new cleanser and moisturiser, designed for sensitive skin. So being a massive Burts Bees fan, I was very excited to be involved. I’ve been using the products about a month now, so think it’s about time I wrote a few thoughts down for you all.

The new Burt’s Bees sensitive range has been designed to moisturise skin without causing redness or irritation, every product is hypoallergenic, fragrance free, dermalogically tested and allergy tested. The inclusion of Cotton Extract provides the moisture without any irritation, teamed with Rice Extract and Aloe, this is the perfect gentle skincare product.

I tried the Cleanser and Day Cream for one month. Both products are listed as 99.0% natural, which is fantastic news.

The cleanser is soap free and therefore does not foam. It’s a soft, creamy consistency similar to the Liz Earle Cleans & Polish, but thinner than the Liz Earle. The cleanser can be used to gently remove make up and certainly leaves the skin soft and smooth. I did like how my skin felt afterwards, you can tell that the formula is gentle, but for someone like myself who doesn’t consider herself to have sensitive skin, personally I’d prefer something that gives more benefits. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a simple cleanser for sensitive skin, as it is a lovely product to use and good value at £9.99. With no artificial fragrances, you get a very mild sense, which I would compare to the scent of porridge, which is very pleasent.

Ok, so this is a slightly out of focus image of the Burt’s Bees Sensitive Daily Moisturising Cream, but I wanted to show you the packaging as I really like it. Having a pump instead of a pot feels so much more hygienic and in my opinion, helps you dispence just the right amount each time, helping you to avoid the greasy over creamed face that is so often a problem with enthusiastic moisturisers like myself. As with the cleanser, there is a very mild nature scent to this cream. I love the consistency of this one, as it massages into the face easily but is lightweight, which makes it very comfortable to wear all day long and is unlikely to affect the placement of your make up. The day moisturiser retails at £14.99 and I would use this again.

So overall, although this range is maybe not for me in the long run, it truly is a great range for problem skin that is sensitive or for someone looking for a simple skin care routine full of natural goodness.

What do you think of Burt’s Bees? Have you tried their skincare?
