Honey & Shea Body Butter
this USED to be a great product....
My family has used this body butter for a long time. The consistency, the smell, everything was perfect. I just picked up one of the new jars and was so disappointed when I opened it. It is a completely different product now! It?s no longer like a body butter; it?s now a thick lotion. And the smell?.UGH! It?s so overpowering and unpleasant. Why couldn?t BB at least keep the scent the same when reformulating?
I sent an email to BB complaining about this and got some generic response about how they are trying to make all their products 100% natural. However, since when is beeswax unnatural?!? Removing that from the ingredient list is probably what caused such a change in consistency. Their email also said something about constantly improving their products. This is no improvement. I will no longer be buying this product or any of the other many BB products my family uses. Who knows what will be reformulated next?.

Wow, I thought I was the only one NOT liking this "new and improved" product. I fell in love with the original Thouroughly Therapeutic Honey & Shea Body Butter. I loved the fragrance and the texture. It actually kept my skin moisturized all day long. I finally found something that worked beautifully on my skin. Then comes this replacement product which is horrible. I purchased it thinking it was just new packaging. But, I do NOT like the smell and the texture is more of a thick lotion then body butter. It does NOT work for me, my skin gets ashy and looks dry. PLEASE BRING BACK THE FORMER PRODUCT. I will NOT buy this again.
Please listen to those of us who spend our hard earned money on your product.

Not new and improved
I have been using Honey and Shea butter for about a year and a half - it is the first product to control my chronic itchy dry skin. What a lifesaver this product has been - my skin is healthy again. I just opened my new jar of the "new and improved" product and I am so disappointed. I don't like the "coconutty" smell at all - the old fragrance of honey was like aromatherapy! I don't feel like this product holds the moisture in my skin nearly as well as the old product - I think it's the beeswax that is missing. PLEASE bring back the old formula - this one is no good. Thanks.

New lotion, poorer quality
I have been using Burt's Bees Thoroughly Theraputic honey and shea body butter lotion for more than 5 years. I love the original version's non-greasy formula, the thick-textured, and sweet-scented body butter. But this new version is more like lotion and less like body butter; the scent is really bitter and nauseating; and an oily residue is left behind. The new product is of much lower quality. I really hope that the new version will not replace the old version completely. I noticed online that the older version is selling for a much higher price, about $20 per containter, a precious commodity indeed. Please Burt's Bees, bring the old body butter back.
