Burt's Bees

Birchbox Breakdown

Known as the tough guy of the flower world, the clary sage plant manages to survive in the harsh climates of the Mediterranean because it can trap and retain moisture like no other. Naturally, this makes it an incredibly effective key ingredient for Burt’s Bees® Intense Hydration Day Lotion with Clary Sage. This natural facial moisturizer—part of the five-step Burt’s Bees® Intense Hydration line (and our latest Birchbox Find)—harnesses the tenacious little plant to keep skin flake-free, soft, and supple. Bonus: It also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a youthful, healthy glow.

Smells terrible

Everyone's nose is different, but for me personally I couldn't get past the smell to be able to use the product. Smelled like fresh cut stink weed to me

Heavy!
Sampled

While I like most of the products on the product line I did not like this. It is a very heavy lotion. Would be great after a day skiing or after a long sun kissed vacation where my skin was very dry

Breakouts
Sampled

I liked the consistency and I didn't think the smell was bad, it just smelled a little plasticy the way philosophy face lotions smell. Unfortunately it broke me out. I guess it was way too thick for my oily skin. Seems like burts bees always breaks my skin out. That being said, it didn't make my face red which most facial lotions tend to do. It also didn't burn on application.

Great Lotion

I love this lotion. It really helps during those terrible winter months when your hands get super dry and cracked. I keep it in my office for routine use

Very Nice

I really like this lotion, found that not much at all is needed, keeps my face soft. Not as greasy as some others I have tried. Overall it has made my skin extremely soft and moisturized, just as it claimed. However my skins looks brighter

Just ok for a moisturizer
Sampled

I received a small sample of this product and applied it a few times on my face. It was too thick and greasy for my face and although the smell was very light, I didn't like the smell of it. It might be due to the fact that I tried this product during the summer that it left my face feeling a little greasy, so I might reapply in the winter and see if it works better then. But for now, I think it's a little too thick for me.

Burts bees
Sampled

My hands have been extremely dry due to my work. When I got this sample it helped my hand tremendously. When I went to buy it, it was already taken off the website. It is by far my favorite though!
