Burt’s Bees Radiance Serum Review

Product Purchased by IMBB

Hi friends,

I am back with my second product purchase by IMBB 🙂 I had been forever longing to try serums from Burt’s Bees and was super excited to try the radiance serum as it is packed with the famed – royal jelly from the bees.

Burt’s Bees Radiance Serum

Burt’s Bees Radiance Serum Packaging:
The serum comes in a transparent glass bottle packaging with a dropper. The dropper has a slight curve at the tip to dispense accurate amount of serum. It is not a very travel-friendly packaging as care needs to be taken so as to not break the glass. The serum is extremely lightweight with mild fragrance. The serum has pale golden color and is non sticky. The serum is part of the Burt Bee’s Radiance collection.

Burt’s Bees Radiance Serum Ingredients

My Experience with Burt’s Bees Radiance Serum:

The serum’s consistency is so lightweight that it is almost similar to water. I need 4-5 drops to apply on my face. The serum gets absorbed so fast into my skin that it does not even feel that I have applied anything. The serum contains licorice root extract and glycerin to provide hydration to skin. However, as I have dry skin, just applying serum does not provide enough moisturization.

Product description of skin serum

I always prefer layering the serum with my face cream. The good thing is that the serum does not hinder with any subsequent application of cream. For an oily or normal skin, it would okay to just use the serum by itself, as it is non-greasy.

The serum contains 99.9% natural products, which makes it very organic. Our skin gets constantly bombarded with loads of chemicals in face products, so using this serum is beneficial as it has all natural contents. The serum contains Royal Jelly as the key functioning ingredient as it contains amino acids, vitamins along with Niacin and Folic Acid.

Skin serum

I have found the serum to provide significant benefits on my skin as I can observe the positive changes.  It made my skin smoother as my pore size became smaller. It provided a more even look to the skin. My skin has been responding very well to this product. My skin appearance looks better as it feels firmer.

Skin serum swatches

The serum can be used twice a day, but I prefer using it in the mornings, as it is very lightweight. The fragrance of the serum is not a very positive factor, as it smells mildly medicinal and not very pleasant. The good thing is that the fragrance fades away immediately after application. The serum also contains alcohol, which is not very suitable for my dry skin. However, the serum has worked very well and has been a very helpful as anti-aging serum.

  1. Alcohol irritates my skin very badly alaka, it wouldn’t work for me. Such a detailed review, you have covered the product so well 🙂

  2. I soooo want to try it. But, I am guilty of breaking two glass bottles so far – one face serum and one hair serum. 😛
