Orange Essence Facial Cleanser
Good for dry, sensitive skin
I had trouble with normal cleansers. My face was irritated and dried out to the point where it had read spots all over, itchy and stung if I put anything on it. So I tried this somewhat reluctantly but was really surprised how well it worked. The oil gently removes everything and feels so fresh with orange scent. I've been using it for the past 2 months and still in love with it.
But I can see people with oilier skin might break out with this.

This is a good product to use on the daily. The consistency is thick, but it cleanses away dirt well. It doesn't really suds up, so don't expect it to. I find it works best in combination with a facial sponge. Keep in mind that a little goes a long way... Don't use too much! It goes fast.

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.
