Soap Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream
Not for Acne Prone Skin
I purchased this product after Burt's Bees Face Care Guide recommended it to me. I was hopefull that even though it was not an acne wash, it would really "Go deep" and help with the blackheads I already had while moisturizing my face. My first experience with the product was awesome. It smells like Fruity Pebbles, and is super creamy, and leaves a tingly feeling on your face. It also however leaves a greasy like residue on your face that is vaguely bothersome, but not too bad. After using the product for several days, I noticed I had a ton of tiny blackheads forming all over my face, which lead me to come to a conclusion: either the cleanser itself was causing the blackheads , or this product was not really getting all my makeup off at night. I would not recommend using this as your sole makeup remover, and I would not recommend this product for anyone who has combo/oily skin. It's just too moisturizing. Also, a couple of the ingredients are known to be comedogenic.

This is a very soothing facial cleanser. I have another product i use to keep my blackheads to a minimum, but that burns my face very badly and makes me look like a tomato (I don't even have sensitive skin). I ALWAYS use this afterwards to help sooth my skin and reduce the redness. It tingles (due to the menthol) and my skin feels very clean with this. This also dries out my deep oily zits. My skin isn't overly oily afterwards either. This is a definite repurchase item.

Something to get used to
The scent of this is something to get used to. It's not bad by any means but it smells kind of like a weird dentist's office smell because of the menthol in it. As to cleaning it does leave the skin feeling great and clean but not dry and painful like other cleansers. It kept my acne at bay and it leaves one with a good refreshed feeling. I'm happy with this cleanser and I've purchased it twice :)

Brings my skin to life!
As a first time user of Burt's Bees products, I was pleasantly astounded when I used this cleansing cream. My face instantly felt like it was glowing, due to the tingling of the menthol. I felt like my face was coming alive! I've never had that feeling, not with any of the commercial skin cleansers that use manufactured synthetic ingredients. Burt's Bees is 100% on the mark when they say natural ingredients make a difference. I could tell right away this was no ordinary face wash. When I applied the cream, it sank straight to my pores. It was as if I could feel a vacuum sucking all of the bacteria out of my skin and leaving in its wake a burst of sunshine. I'm still smiling as I write this, the feeling is so fresh and unique. Before you go to the store and buy commercial cleansers, try out Burt's Bees. Trust me. Your skin will thank you!
