Burt's Bees Facial Cleanser Orange Essence -- 4.3 fl oz
I generally really love Burt's Bees facial products, especially their face washes, and I decided to give this a go because of the highly rated reviews. Unfortunately, this cleanser fell short for my dry and sensitive skin. The things I liked about it were the balm-like texture of this product and that it doesn't foam. Foaming products generally wreak havoc on my skin so I gravitate toward cream cleansers and oils. Now, getting to why I wouldn't purchase this again- first and foremost I find the smell offensive. It is very strongly scented, and reminds me of those orange soaps that mechanics use to get the grease off of their hands, with the actual smell of motor oil as part of this orange rind scent. I'm not sure where the grease note is coming from? I usually love scented face products if they are natural, but not this time. I also found my face always looks a bit irritated and more red toned after using this. For my skin type, I really recommend the Intensive Moisture line that Burt's Bees carries. Vitacost by far has the best prices for this line.

I like this facial cleanser. It is very gentle and has a nice light orange sent. It is great for the winter months and will remove makeup nicely. I use it in conjunction with other foaming cleansers. If my skin feels a bit dry I reach for this!

A morning refreshment
I use this face wash every morning. The citrus scent wakes me up! I love the all natural ingredients. This face wash does not remove makeup. It is perfect for the morning to refresh your skin.

no scary ingredients
I've used this product for years to clean my face. I love the short list of ingredients that are all familiar - no scary stuff. It leaves my face feeling clean, but not stripped of all oils like some products.
