Burt's Bees Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream Review


Here's a review on Burt's Bees Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream.

Price:
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in all Beauty Bar stores

THE VERDICT:

I fancy anything mentholated because I love the cool, refreshing feeling it gives my skin. It's like mint makes any skin care regimen more relaxing and satisfying, plus our weather-despite typhoons-is generally warm and this extract soothes and calms tropical skin. If I could apply pure menthol on my face, I would, but that would burn. :p

Anyway! There's this facial cleanser from Burt's Bees called Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream that satisfies my love for anything minty, cool, and fresh. I also believe that this is a natural counterpart of one of my all-time favorite cleansing creams, Noxzema.

BURT'S BEES SOAP BARK AND CHAMOMILE DEEP CLEANSING CREAM IN DETAIL

This rich, creamy cleanser is infused with Chamomile that soothes skin, Aloe to moisturize it, and a hint of Menthol for a rejuvenating experience. It promises to effectively remove dirt, oil, and make-up with Soap Bark, a tree- derived foaming agent.

BURT'S BEES SOAP BARK AND CHAMOMILE DEEP CLEANSING CREAM IN ACTION

This cleanser is mighty rich, but it's completely soap- free so those who get irritated by it need not worry. Soap Bark is used in lieu of chemical soap, but this thing does not lather up-I believe this ingredient just gives the product better dirt and makeup- removing powers. It has this pleasing minty chamomile scent and imparts a nice, cooling sensation upon application. However, the menthol ingredient stings the eyes-it goes away after a few seconds, but still, it's irritating. The product instructs you to not use it on the eye area, but that could mean makeup, oil, and dirt residue on this area may be left behind, thus you won't really get that genuine clean feel. To solve this, you may use another cleanser. Hmmm…too tedious! I guess this product is not really for everyone, but I like it anyway because of the menthol extract and best part is, it's a great alternative to Noxzema (which is pretty hard to find nowadays. If you find one, please let me know!).

Despite the richness of its consistency, I think it's only best used on days when you don't wear too much makeup. For Waterproof makeup and the likes, you may need a lil' help from SLS and soap to completely dissolve the adhesive- like compounds of the said products.

This cleanser is pretty good and I alternate it with soap- based facial cleansers once in a while. Methinks it's best for those with oily and combination (oily/dry and oily/normal) skin because it yields a slight mattifying and softening effect to the skin. If your concern is if it will break you out because it's cream- based, in my experience, nope, it didn't. :)

  2. I'm a fan of Burt's Bees products especially the lip balms. However, I haven't tried this product yet. I also love mentholated products, but since you mentioned that it can't be used on the eyes, I don't think I'll try this one. I usually put eyeshadows on, so I need a facial wash that'll clean my eyes well. And I have a lot of facial rituals already to use 2 facial wash for my face. :)

  3. Rosemarie: Hi there and welcome to my blog! Me too! I love menthol because it's so relaxing!

    Abegaill: Same! I will always be a loyal fan of the classic beeswax lip balm. :) Yes, I also use a separate facial wash to clean my eyes whenever I'm using this. Tedious, but I just gotta love the tingling sensation I get from this product!

  4. The lip balm I tried in their line intensified my desire to try their other products. Just wow! even the foaming agent is organic.

    I don't mind if it doesn't give a squeaky clean feel after, it's just a way to not strip too much oil from our face. What's the use of make up remover diba? Ayts, why is that you rated the user-friendliness low? I'm bit confused.
