Orange Essence Facial Cleanser
Sweet, Soft, and Yummy
This product works incredibly well. Orange oil, for those who don't know, is a powerful natural cleaner that is high in antioxidants, vitamin c, and is very good for antiaging, inflammation, and acne issues. It has natural antiseptic qualities. This product is PACKED with orange oil. The first second you uncap this cleanser you are transported to an orange grove. This smell is so sweet and strong, in a good way. Oh and the smell doesn't linger throughout the day in case you are worried it might compete with your perfume or something. I used a Clarisonic with this for the exfoliation benefit but I will comment that no matter how you use this product, with or without a Clarisonic, you will not get a lather. It's simply not meant to lather. It's an oil based cleanser. This will not dry your face out at all. I have oily to combination skin with extremely bad blackhead areas along the outer sides of my cheeks. This has not caused any issues anywhere and leaves my skin touchably soft. While this is recommended for normal to dry skin types, if you use this and have super oily or combination skin skin try a toner with it on your problem areas. There is absolutely no tightness after using this. This cleanser is truly very low impact on your skin. Being in my mid 20's, I have tried every kind of cleanser under the sun from the low end to the super expensive including just about every drug store verity. Lately I have realized I don't want to be throwing so many chemicals onto my face (sulfates to name one) just to get it clean. I mean seriously, do I really need my cleanser to be bright blue all crammed with dye? If you are in the market for a new cleanser and want to try something completely different, give this product a try!

different than anything else!
I was in that awful "coming off of Proactiv" phase with my skin, when I was breaking out so bad I just wanted to cry about it. After reading about a safe way to come off of it, I was recommended to try a Burt's Bees product. After checking the reviews online, I went out and picked up this Orange Essence cleanser. The first time I used it, it seemed weird - it doesn't lather up like a normal cleanser but works extremely well for being an oil cleanser. The first time I used it, I was not in love with the after-feeling, I just felt like I still had a layer on my face - so I used a baking soda exfoliant to remove the layer, as well as for general face cleaning. Loved the feeling after - brighter, fresher skin - felt clean, soft, smooth - and the cleanser smelled great. Now, I tend to use the cleaner on dry skin or recently washed (say, in the shower) and recently air-dryed but still moist skin - and I like the feeling it leaves much better. I still usually follow with a baking soda scrub - but I'd be doing that with most cleansers anyway. A little goes a long way, the smell is great, it feels fresh, you skin feels soft and smooth and not dry or oily after. Definitely would buy again, definitely would recommend. It cleaned up that "coming off of proactiv" problem IMMEDIATELY - the next day my skin was back to smooth - and for the most part, has stayed that way since using this product.

Great facial cleanser
Being in grad school, I am confronted with a good amount of stress on a regular basis and was reflected in the way my skin looked. I used to break out easily and my skin generally is more sensitive to the creams and cleansers I use on my face.
Last year I started changing my lifestyle, eating better, working out and at the same time decided to take better care of my skin by using natural products. I am using various Burts Bees products and I like all of them so far. I have been using this cleanser for a few months now and ever since I have been using it, my skin is much clearer and I rarely break out. It smells good and doesnt leave my skin feeling tight like chemical cleansers do. I will definitely stick with this one. :)
