Burt's Bees Intense Hydration

My latest buzz kit was Burt's Bees Intense Hydration products. I received 3 full size products; Cream Cleanser, Treatment Mask, and Night Cream with Clary Sage, a remarkable botanical that thrives in its harsh environment because of its ability to retain moisture.

With the colder months approaching, it's important for your skin to stay hydrated so I was excited to try these products.

The Cream Cleanser ($10) is amazing ! After using a wash cloth to massage is in, I was surprised to see how it literally melted off my makeup! I decided to do a little experiment... The next time I washed my face I used my regular gel cleanser , I always thought it was doing a good enough job of getting my makeup off. Then I used the Burt's Bees cream cleanser after my gel cleanser and once again, a wash cloth full of makeup - gross! I couldn't believe it, not only was my other cleanser not removing my makeup, but it was stripping my skin of the natural oils it needs to stay lubricated.

The Treatment Mask ($18) was next. I applied a thick layer and relaxed for 10 minutes while it worked it's magic. I removed it with a tissue, then massaged the remaining product into my skin like the package instructed. To be honest, there was a lot of residue left over, so maybe removing with a wash cloth would be better.

I finished off with the Night Cream ($18) by smoothing it all over my face and neck. I can't even explain how great my skin feels. It's so soft, I can't stop touching it!

I would definitely recommend these products to my friends and clients as proof that you don't need to spend a bundle to make your skin feel like a million bucks.

or how a shaving soap changed themy world.... I may have a problem balancing the girlie girl in me, with the cynical New Yorker? I don't usually think of myself as a hopeless romantic, but lately I equate everything to relationships, even blogging about products. As much as I'd like to be that wham bam thank you ma'am reviewer... you know, the one that gets the product and says "OK you'll have final copy in 3 days", I just can't. I need to fall in love with it, even if only for the moment, and for that I need to get to know you better.  Seriously, can you really get to know a anything in such a short time, enough to feel confident telling all your friends about it ?  Because that's what you are, you're my friends. 
And friends can smell BS a mile away.  So I'm not going to candy coat it, if I love it, I'll scream it from the rooftops, and if I don't....well.
