Burt’s Bee’s have been a staple drugstore brand on the British Highstreet known for their amazing lip balms and their natural skincare products. I was recently introduced to their lip balms this year and let me just say, they are worth the hype! I was sent a mini sample of their Facial Cleansing Oil which I have been using and I thought I would share my thoughts on the product.
Burt’s Bee’s Facial Cleansing Oil is 100% natural and made with coconut and argan oil. The oil is free from parabens, petrolatum, SLS and phthalates but rich in antioxidants and natural moisturizers. It’s supposed to gently remove dirt and makeup without an oily residue. The oil is suitable for normal to dry skin types. (Find out how to determine your skin type in my previous post here)
The Burt’s Bee’s Facial Cleansing Oil has a great scent and very effective against makeup. I’m starting to venture out and experiment with different types of makeup removers and I must say this cleansing oil is very nice.
I pour a small amount of the oil in my hands and massage in circular motions on dry skin. It works quickly to break down makeup and mascara. It also works great against liquid lipsticks. I cleanse my face with the oil twice, rinsing with warm water each time. My skin is left feeling soft but with no oily& heavy feeling. It doesn’t dry out my skin. To test how effective the Facial Cleansing Oil is, I follow with my Vanity Planet Spin for Perfect Skin Face Brush, and there is little to no makeup residue on the brush!
I haven’t experienced nay irritation from the Burt’s Bee Facial Cleansing Oil and it hasn’t clogged my pores. Although Burt’s Bee says the oil is for Normal to Dry Skin Types, I found the oil worked well with my Normal/Combo Oily skin type.
My only con is that I find the dispenser on the bottle atrocious. The oil hardly comes out so I have to unscrew the cap to use it but this may be because it’s a mini sample. The full-size product of Burt’s Bee’s comes in a pump bottle which may be easier to use.
If cleansing oils are your thing then the Burt’s Bee’s Facial Cleansing Oil is right up your street! 100% natural ingredients, great scent and an effective deep cleansing makeup remover what more could you ask for?
The Burt’s Bee’s Facial Cleansing Oil is £16.99 available from Burt’s Bee’s
