I just want to get this out of the way and say that I know this post is going up later than my usual time. I am sorry about that, had some personal issues to deal with yesterday and didn’t have time to (or the brain capacity) to type this up.
Now that that’s done, let’s get onto the actually business at hand.
Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil. What can I say about this lovely skincare product. So much!
I haven’t used a lot of cleansing oils; the occasional one I’ll get in my beauty subscription; but I have to say that this is my favorite for many reasons.
One, it’s moisturizing. It doesn’t dry out my skin, which is great for the winter months. Who wants dry skin or products that dry your skin out? I sure don’t!
Two, the price. Burt’s Bees is a drugstore brand, and has been one of my favorite drugstore brands for a long time. This means that it comes with drugstore prices (duh!). Granted, this particular item was on the middle scale of drugstore prices ($16) but it’s totally worth that price.
Three, it’s all-natural. There aren’t any harmful ingredients. Instead, the main ingredients are argan and coconut oils. Both of these together keep my skin nourished and not feeling stripped after using this product.
Fourth, the packaging. It comes in a great pump bottle, albeit not that great for traveling, which makes it a much easier process for washing all that makeup off.
Fifth, it lasts forever. It comes in two sizes (6 oz. & 1 oz.), I have the former, and I haven’t even reached the half way mark in the 6 oz. I tend to use two to three pumps and I thought that would mean I use the bottle up real quick. Nope! I was wrong! I nearly have the whole bottle still left. So, what I’m getting at is that even though you’re spending $16 you’re getting a great deal.
Finally, no scent. I have said it time and time again that I’m not a huge fan of overwhelmingly scented skincare/beauty products. This one is perfect for just that annoyance. It has no scent! Or at least if it does, it’s a barely there one.
Now, there are a few things that do bug me about this product. The first thing is that it irritates my eyes. I like a good cleansing oil that will remove my eye makeup, especially since I like to use waterproof mascara (we’ll get back to this in a sec). This one does that, but it does tend to sting my eyes a bit. Now, this could be that I just have sensitive eyes (especially in winter when they tend to be dryer) or it could just be the product itself. I don’t know. It’s something I have just lived with and gotten over since using this cleansing oil.
You might be wondering why I said we would get back to the waterproof mascara bit from above. Well, this oil doesn’t completely remove all of eye makeup. I do still have to go in with micellar water and a cotton round. It’s not a super annoying thing and it’s something I have gotten over as well. I don’t blame the product for this minor thing.
Overall, I’m happy that I have this cleansing oil as part of my skincare regime. In fact, I’m so happy that I now want to incorporate more natural skincare/beauty to my routine. Who know? You might see a Burt’s Bees beauty post in the future 🙂
