My first blog on WordPress was about product testing for Burt’s Bees and BzzAgent. After a month of using the new hydration line, the campaign is now coming to a close. Here are my final thoughts on their product.
4 out 5 stars.
I enjoyed the time I got to spend getting to know some of the products in Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration line. I was sent the Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser, along with the Intense Hydration Night Cream.
While some have commented that the scent of the Clary Sage wasn’t their favorite, I quite enjoyed it. It embodies the 99% natural ingredients. It helped add to the fresh feeling left on my face. Both the cleanser and cream were particularly thick, but you wouldn’t know it after applying it to your face. It did a great job of soaking into my skin and didn’t leave a greasy feeling in the slightest.
My first blog review talked about my first night with Burt … actually, my first morning after using the product. I live in Northern British Columbia, where dry skin runs rampant! I was hugely impressed that I woke up to a fresh face with zero dry flakes! However with any product, it is the test of time that is the huge tell all. My second and third mornings were not as spectacular. I woke with my usual dry bits on my face. My excitement for the product was slightly reducing. But still I carried on.
I could just be a product of my environment. I’ve lived in 4 different provinces and 6 different cities in my time and my current city is by far the driest! No matter what I do, I dry up! I think many of us up here, suffer the same thing.
I also think this product campaign would have done much better if we were additionally sent the Day Lotion. That’s when most of us are out and about and it’s probably the most important time that we want our skin looking good. If I got to try this product, along with the others that were sent, I’m going to assume that this would have been the perfect skin package!
I stopped diligently using both products in the evening together when the results started to decrease and slipped back into my regular skin routine, as I had to look my best for work. I did continue to use the products separately by using the cleanser during my morning showers and the cream during the night. I still wanted to give these products a fair shot.
Bottom line, I do think this is a good product. It does hydrate, it does leave your skin super soft and I like that it has natural ingredients. It’s also very affordable compared to it’s rivals on the market. I know that others have had incredible results with the Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration line, so I do encourage others to try … but I would probably also go for the day cream, just so you have 24/7 protection.
