Review: Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser

Burt’s Bees recently launched a new product line called Burt’s Bees Natural Skin Solutions for Sensitive Skin. This product line, consisting of facial cleanser, daily moisturizer, eye cream, and night cream, was designed to be hypo-allergenic, fragrance-free, and extremely gentle on the skin. I recently received a sample of Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser, and put this product to the test. Did it live up to Burt’s Bees claims of being a gentle skin care solution?

  • Fragrance-free
  • No parabens, phthalates, or petrochemicals
  • Dermatologist-tested and allergy-tested
  • 99% natural; made with cotton extract, rice extract, and aloe

I suffer from extremely dry and sensitive skin during cold weather, so this product could not have come at a more perfect time for me to test them. I need a strong moisturizer during this time of year to protect my skin from drying out. The Sensitive Facial Cleanser did a formidable job of keeping my skin moisturized in this tough, cold weather.

The Sensitive Facial Cleanser is the most gentle facial cleansing product that I’ve ever used. It has a very faint odor, presumably from the materials used to make the product, but it’s not very noticeable or irritating. I definitely feel comfortable calling this product “fragrance-free.” The cleanser itself is just the right texture—not too thin, but not too thick. I could easily apply it to my face, and quickly work it into a good lather despite the notoriously hard water in my area. I didn’t need to scrub or work it into my skin to feel clean and moisturized. The cleanser was easy to wash off my face, and didn’t feel greasy.

What impressed me most about the Sensitive Facial Cleanser was how well it kept my face moisturized. I usually have dry and irritated skin after washing my face, complete with flaking dry skin and redness. Not this time. The Sensitive Facial Cleanser left my skin feeling smooth, very fresh, and well-moisturized. Even more impressive was that the product kept my face moisturized throughout the entire day. Despite my long walks in the cold and the dry heat keeping my home warm, my face didn’t dry out and start flaking. In fact, since I started using this product every day, I haven’t experienced dry skin on my face at all.


Overall, Burt’s Bees delivered on its promise to create a very gentle, but effective facial cleanser. People seeking a truly hypo-allergenic and fragrance-free skin care solution will be quite pleased with the Burt’s Bees Natural Skins Solutions for Sensitive Skin product line. The fact that this product consists mainly of natural ingredients is just icing on the cake.

The Burt’s Bees Natural Skin Solutions for Sensitive Skin product line can be purchased through their official website, or through retailers such as Walmart, Target, and drug stores.

I received a Burt’s Bees Natural Skin Solutions for Sensitive Skin sample kit through BzzAgent. The words and experiences in this review are my own. Please see my disclosure policy for further details.
