Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Review

Fall is officially here (if you live in the northern United States, Canada, etc) and that means dry skin. I am always looking for something to combat not just the dry skin on my knees, elbows, and ankles, but also my face because wind and cold air makes my skin feel tight and dry even when using a moisturizing BB cream. This year my search for a great product is over! Burt Bees Intense Hydration products have be covered from body to face.
Disclaimer: I received these products complimentary from Bzz Agent

When i first opened these products i noticed a scent that was both familiar and different. Sage is an ingredient i cook with often but its scent is very calming. These products contain Clary Sage which not only helps the skin to retain moisture but adds the most beautiful smell. A very natural and herb like smell, in no way medicinal. I would recommend it to anyone that likes products with natural ingredients and natural scents.

The first product i tried was Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser which cleans makeup and dirt from the face hydrates the skin, and rises off without a residue. I wear a lot of water proof makeup such as eye liner, liner, primer, and concealer and this cleaned my face clear of these products. It did not leave my face feeling tight like some soaps do. This is great for dry to combination skin. Great for nightly use. Can be found at drugstores for $9.99

Next i tried Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Treatment Mask. I have to be honest, i know this product says to use on the face, but i used this on my dry body parts like my knees, ankles and elbows. I used it in the same way it is intended for the face and i have never had smoother ankles, knees, and elbows. I also did use it on my face, left it on for about two minuets. It remained wet the entire time, so even though it is a mask it is a wet, very hydrating mask. After two minuets i wiped away the mask with a wet wash cloth. My skin looked smoother and refreshed. This is great as a three times a week treatment. This product can be found at drugstores for about $17.99

Lastly i tried Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Night cream. I began to apply this nightly and after only one application i woke up with softer skin. I also noticed that the fine lines (very fine i am still young!) on my forehead, and under my eyes were reduced. This product did not feel greasy or oily and i felt it absorbed rather quickly. I would recommend this product for anyone who has concerns with winkles and dry skin. Using this product eliminates the a wrinkle reducer from your routine and will save you time before bed. Sleep, plus moisture, plus reduction and prevention of wrinkles, i will take that any day! You can find this product in drugstores for about $17.99.

 Aside from having soft, fresh smelling, hydrated skin, i feel good knowing that this company uses natural ingredients, is environmentally conscious, does not test on animals, and helps Bee populations. So i not only feel good on the outside with these products, but i feel good on the inside knowing i am choosing a company that cares.
