I love using natural beauty products and strangely enough have noticed I have barely tried andything Burt’s Bees, which is kind of a cult favourite by now… so here’s my first experience with the line and two of their face products.
Burt’s Bees Peach and Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub and Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream Review
Peach and Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub
I liked this scrub. It cleanses well without over-drying the skin. I found it managed to remove impurities and dirt quite well and left my skin feeling fresh. I didn’t find the big “exfoliating particles” particularly effective, as they are well, to big and chunky for my liking. They kinda just roll on top of the skin without disolving and I doubt they managed to slough away any dead skin. However, the cleanser is good, and I love the ingredients, particularly the willow bark, a natural form of the now famous salicylic acid, used in many acne fighting products.
Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream
I really liked this product as well. The texture is dense and creamy, I like to spread it on my face and actually leave it on for a few minutes. It feels very refreshing, you can actually feel the menthol in it, and calming (blame all the amazing good-for-your-skin stuff in it). I don’t find it mousses a lot, which I don’t mind and have to rinse my face a few times to make sure I get all of it off. My face is left super clean and refreshed. This stuff managed to calm a few breakouts, and soothe my irritated skin a few times. I like to use it every other day, or if my skin is really acting up I found it gentle enough to use daily.
Overall, I liked both cleansers. They are gentle and quite ingenious, the scrub being a great night-time wash and the Cleansing Cream a refreshing, soothing morning face wash.
