At the start of New Year, like everybody else, I took a New Year resolution that I will daily go to my Zumba and cardio classes. So far, so good! But with this sudden change in my physical activities came “acne.” I believe it happens when there is a change in your daily routine or diet, but nobody likes acne. So, without doing any prior research on what to buy or not, I just got Burt’s Bees Acne Solution Cleanser because all its products are natural.
Burt’s Bees Natural Acne Solutions Purifying Gel Cleanser is clinically proven to help wash away acne-causing bacteria, excess oil and impurities without over-drying or irritating skin. Dermatologist-tested, non-comedogenic and 99.4% natural, the result is naturally clear and healthy-looking skin. Salicylic Acid, derived naturally from Willow Bark Extract, penetrates pores to help reduce acne and prevent future breakouts while Evening Primrose and Beet Root Extracts help calm acne prone skin. For best results, use this acne face wash as part of the Burt’s Bees Natural Acne Solutions regimen. Put the power of nature to work for your skin with Burt’s Bees.
$10 for 145 ml.
My Experience with Burt’s Bees Natural Acne Solutions Purifying Gel Cleanser:
I use this daily, twice a day as mentioned in the directions to use section. The formula is not at all soapy, comes as a bit of concentrated gel. It smells decent, not very strong. The cleanser is very gentle and leaves the skin smooth and moisturized, which is generally not the case with a lot of acne products. The natural aspect of this brand makes it stand out and was the reason why I picked it up in the first place. So, there is satisfaction that it is not doing any harm to your skin as there’s no sulfates, parabens, or petrochemicals in the cleanser. Also, the price is not too much. I have used it daily and not too much of quantity is required for a single use, so I suppose it’s not going to run out any time soon.
After using it for a couple of weeks now, I can say that I am not acne free completely, but it has certainly helped in reducing the acne condition. So, it is working on my skin and I don’t feel that it is stripping away any natural oil from my skin. Just a little moisturizer afterwards is a must.
This cleanser is just a part of Burt’s Bees Acne Solution – they have a toner, blemish stick, moisturizing lotion, spot treatment cream and what not in this range. So, I suppose that someone with stubborn acne and blemishes can combine these products and can get some really good results. For me, since I only have mild acne, this cleanser alone has solved my problems.
After a while, when I started noticing some changes on my skin, I started using this cleanser twice or thrice a week because salicylic acid has a tendency to dry out and irritate the skin when used regularly.
I don’t know whether the packaging is travel safe or not but the plastic bottle with a cap on it seems to be quite ordinary. The bottle is transparent, so I know how much product is still in there
