Burt's Bees Soap Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream


I have been meaning to post this review yesterday before work but can you believe that, even though I did check my alarm clock about five times before going to bed - as always - it is actually my boss who woke me up at 6:10 when I was supposed to be at work at 6:00? No, the alarm did not ring, because the sound was turned off, and I simply can't understand why, despite all of my precautions! Strange things have been hapenning in my room, not to mention those weird fingerprints in my mirror... Let's just say that I was really angry and publishing this review was the last thing I had on my mind. I am glad it only takes me 15 minutes to get to work, so I ended up being half an hour late, but luckily, my boss understood and was kind enough to allow me to end my shift at 3:00 instead of 2:00. Enough ramblings for now and onto the review!

I was looking for a creamy and non-drying cleanser to pamper my already parched and eczema-prone skin, and I figured out this one would do the trick as it is made of plant-based ingredients. I was not disappointed - I'm always looking forward to using it again! This cleanser is thick and creamy and it does not foam like most cheap gel cleansers.

I love that my skin feels fresh after use (without that squeeky-clean feeling), but it sometimes still feel a little oily, as if it wasn't completely clean, especially when I wear foundation or BB Cream - nothing that can't be fixed with a little toner though. However, I have noticed that if I use this cleanser every day, it tends to  dry me out a bit - this is probably due to the menthol in it, so I would recomment to be careful if you have sensitive skin.

I also appreciate the convenient squeezable tube instead of the usual slippery bottle. I have had this cleanser for a long time and I feel it will last me a while as you really only need a little quantity of product each time thanks of its thick texture.

Burt's Bees Soap Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream is 98.8% natural and is not tested on animals. It is available for $12.99 for which is relatively cheap for such a great product.

  2. Coucou Gaby! Ça a l'air bien comme nettoyant. J'aime beaucoup les produits de cette marque, surtout qu'il n'y en a pas beaucoup à la pharmacie qui ne sont pas testées sur les animaux.
    En passant je t'ai nommée pour un Versatile Blogger Award!

  4. I've actually been checking out this face wash quite a few times recently but did not buy it. Hearing your review I know it is not for me, I hate that oily feeling! Great review though for us ladies to read :)
