REVIEW-Burt's Bees® Intense Hydration

Hi guys,

I'm doing a review for BzzAgent today. I received the Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser and the Intense Hydration Night Cream for review from BzzAgent.

Here is what they say about this line.

"Clary Sage, 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, our natural ode to soft, supple, revitalized skin and our best natural anti-aging solution. Our cream cleanser leaves your skin incredibly soft while our day lotion, eye cream and night cream help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Add the treatment mask for an immediate dose of hydration to give your skin a revitalized look."

So..Let's see I have combo skin type, but I also have psoriasis that has now chosen to creep onto my face from my scalp. Something like this, I figure can't hurt anything. Maybe it is like Moo Cream, a very heavy moisturizer I use on occasion. The first night I only tried the cleanser, just to see what would happen. The smell, is absolutely delicious. So I washed my face as usual, and didn't put any other products on afterwards. I went to bed and woke up the next day. It was clearly not TO MUCH for my face as I had no new breakouts. I didn't find that any of my "parched" spots on my face were cleared up, but I definitely don't expect that after just one use. So the next night I washed my face with the cleanser and I put the night cream on. The night cream was WAY to heavy for my skin. I didn't feel like it sunk in well enough before bed, and I was right. The next morning I woke up with VERY greasy skin, to the point where I had to wash my face twice and switch out my pillow  case.

Two days later though and I am still using the cleanser. It doesn't get off my makeup very well, but I use my makeup remover (which dries out my skin in the winter)and then this cleanser, and it works well for me. I'm starting to notice the spots around my mouth and nose are starting to get better slowly which is an area I tend to focus my cleanser on normally. I will keep you updated and let you know how it is going.

Side part: I did not get paid for this post or for trying this line. I get the product for free to give my opinion on through BzzAgent
