Orange Essence Facial Cleanser
Good, but not great.
Good, but not great. It did tone my skin and the cleanser was thick. It works, but I've seen better.

Reformulated Sloppy Mess
I Gave Review on Makeupalley.com in 2011 for Burts Bees Orange Essence Facial Cleanser, the one which ACTUALLY won the 2008 Award, not this sloppy reformulation. I gave the ORIGINAL THICK Orange Essence Facial Cleanser, as it came in the Orange Tube 5 Lippies and sang it's praises to high heavens. It had a MUCH Higher concentration of ORANGE OIL and NO OAT BRAN in it.
So, I ran out of this thick wonderous cleanser which gives my skin such clarity while leaving it soft and not stripped of oils. I go to Rite Aid and the tubes are different. I, hoping that is all that has changed, buy two tubes and come home. I compare ingredients. My suspicions were right, the ingredients had been changed.
Well, I try it anyway. I place a little of the nice thick cleanser from my old tube on my hand to compare. It forms a nice small pea like shape. I try to put a little of the newly formulated on my hand and the MUCH THINNER OILY Substance just oozes out all over my hand!
What has Burt's Bees Done??? They took an AWARD WINNING Cleanser and changed the formulation to a gloppy mess!
Tomorrow I return both tubes to Rite Aid. I ordered some of the old tubes off of eBay.
But, I'll be looking elsewhere, somewhere other than Burt's Bees for a decent Orange Oil Facial Cleanser.

Great At First
The first time i used this product i got amazing results. It tingled in a warming cleansing way and left my skin smelling nice with a hint of orange. However, i have sensitive skin and about half way into the bottle it started to cause redness and a bit of irritation. i do not have this problem with any of Burt's Bees other skin products. Maybe i got a bad bottle or maybe this product just isn't for me, but Just a warning to those of you with sensitive skin!

Just bought it and already in love.
I had been needing a face cleanser and couldn't find the one I wanted so I admit this was more of an impulse buy... But I am so happy about it. I've been using a bunch of different wipes but was looking for something that worked a little better.
First off, I love the orange smell! It's very natural, too! Not a fake orangey smell at all.
I thought it would be more of a cream but it was thicker and kinda greasy. I was starting to have doubts at this point...
I rubbed it onto my face. I'd been wearing makeup at school all day and had just taken a shower so huge mascara raccoon eyes! I rubbed it in carefully and washed it off... and it was all gone. Not a trace of makeup left and my skin has a very subtle orange smell :)
I should have probably waited a few more weeks to make sure I didn't have any adverse effects, but I loved it too much!
