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.
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in all Beauty Bar stores
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.
My detailed review after the cut!
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. :)
