Rated 2 out of 5 by krosec Very Sadly Disappointed
First let me say I love Burt's Bees! I have loved every product that i've tried...that is until now. I was SO excited to get this acne skin care line & had very high hopes. I have been using it for about a month, and my skin has actually gotten worse...I have more breakouts now than I did before.
It may just be my skin type (oily/combination & prone to breakouts), but I find that there is a film left on my face particularly after using the moisturizer. It takes a while for the moisturizer to soak in, even when I just use half of a pump full. I really wanted this line to work out for me, but I guess i'll have to keep looking.
Don't let my poor experience stop you from trying these products. It seems many people have had luck, but please be aware that this may not be the miracle you were hoping for. It really seems to depend on your skin type...it may be right for you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CatM Fast, Noticeable Results
I've never written a review for any product I've used, but this one was too spectacular to leave unappreciated. I've struggled with mild acne for years. This summer, I finally grew tired of having to cake on the makeup each morning to hide my blemishes. I've tried ProActive, Clean and Clear, Differn, and various birth controls. While these products helped occasionally, I wanted a simple, natural product that would clear my face up and keep it that way. After using the Natural Acne Solutions for one evening, I saw a noticeable difference in my skin. I had a large zit forming on my chin, and it disappeared without even coming to a head within 24 hours. Amazing! I've been using this three step system religiously for about a week now, and haven't had a single pimple or zit in that time. My existing ones cleared up within two days, and these products are even improving my general skin tone. I would recommend this a thousand times over for anyone who struggles with maintaining clear skin, or just as a way to keep your complexion healthy and clean!
P.S. a little goes a long way--don't be deterred by the amount given to you in the containers. all you need is a dime sized blob of the cleanser and lotion, and you'll be good!

Rated 5 out of 5 Best acne product yet
I've been using this for a little over a week now, which I realize isn't very long; however, I already see a vast improvement in my skin. My blemishes are healing, I haven't had any new breakouts, and my skin tone is more even. The face wash lathers up well. The lotion does make my skin kind of oily, but I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that it's also summer and extremely humid right now; I think the lotion will be great for winter. The spot treatment does have a bit of a strong odor, but I'm getting used to that. I'll deal with the smell as long as it keeps working! I'm hoping this treatment will continue to work after a few months unlike other systems (*cough*Proactiv). So far, so good. I would highly recommend this system for acne treatment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RooBoo Incredible...
Before 4 days ago I was in an awful love/hate relationship with Proactive until I learned about the horrible chemicals it had in it. It always dried and irritated my skin and if I tried to switch to a different product, my skin would revolt and I'd be forced to go crawling back to Proactive. I am a Burt's Bees maniac and I thought that this system was too good to be true, although I was afraid that if I switched my face would just break out like normal and I'd be stuck with Proactive again. A little bit scared, I threw away all my old Proactive junk and replaced it with this system. The first time I used the gel cleanser I was taken back by how gentle it felt, how good it smelled, and how easily it bubbled up to a nice soft lather. Next when I used the moisturizing lotion, it felt so good and clean going on my skin and took a few minutes to completely absorb. It took a few tries to find a way to effectively put on the spot treatment, but now I just put a drop or two on a Q-tip and it is so effective and doesn't dry out my skin! THIS REGIMEN IS MY SAVIOR! THANK YOU BURT'S BEES!!!!!!!!!
