Burt's Bees Radiance Facial Cleanser 175ml SGD 20.00/ MYR 51.00
I was very keen to try out Burt's Bees Radiance Facial Cleanser after reading some good reviews over the net and at Makeupalley, it was rated 4.0 out of 5. I was surprised too that this product was out of stock in Malaysia when I stopped over at their store a few months ago. ( I am thinking...this product must be good )
I left my contact with the sales people over at the store so that I can quickly grab them once it arrive. Till date, I have yet to receive a call from them and it is unfortunate that I found out the stocks have arrived in their stores for sometime already. I am quite 'tiffed' that no one at Burt's Bees is even bothered to let me know. Oh well, I might as well take my money to somewhere else where it's appreciated and in this case, I decided to purchase it online through Milangro Trading in Singapore.
This light lotion cleanser removes dirt, oil and make-up, revealing a smooth and radiant complexion. This mild formula combines a gentle plant-based cleansing complex with Jojoba Beads and a Fruit Acid Complex to help encourage normal skin cell turnover. Your skin appears brighter and younger looking. Royal Jelly, one of nature's most nutritious substances, is added to help enhance skin's natural radiance.
Ingredients: water, decyl glucoside, carthamus tinctorius(safflower) seed oleosomes, sodium cocoyl hydrolyzed soy protein, glycerin, coco-glucoside, glyceryl oleate, fragrance, royal jelly, simmondsia chinensis(jojoba) butter, hydrogenated jojoba oil, vaccinium myrtillus(bilberry) fruit extract, saccharum officinarum(sugar cane) extract, acer saccharum(sugar maple) extract, citrus aurantium dulcis(orange) fruit extract, citrus medica limonum(lemon) fruit extract, xanthan gum, glucose, citric acid, sodium chloride, glucose oxidase, lactoperoxidase
The cleanser is milky with thin consistency and it contained a small amount of micro beads as well. Though it has a nice smell, I personally find it a bit overpowering, especially coming from a 100% natural product. One pump of the cleanser is sufficient enough to create a nice lather. It also feels nice when I cleanse my face with this but I have to say that the micro beads is too sparse to do any exfoliation. After rinsing, I feel that this cleanser tends to be more stripping than Madara and it leaves my skin squeaky clean ( which I don't really like ). Though my skin did not feel tight after using it, I feel that it is dry to touch.
I continued on for the next 5 days and come a conclusion that this cleanser does not suit my skin type at all. Why? As I continued on, it really left my cheeks tight and dry and I found a pimple at my lower left cheek :( Since then, I have passed this cleanser to my hubby, who seemed fine when using this.
Sad to say, this cleanser is totally too stripping for my dehydrated skin. My face is left dry to touch and it gave me a pimple as a result. With this, I would rate this product 1 out of 5.
Update: I think Burt's Bees in US have discontinued this product as it is not available at their website anymore.
