Use Your Face Cream On Your Legs: Burt’s Bees Carrot Nutritive Day Creme Review

Burt’s Bees Carrot Nutritive Day Creme is a moisturizing cream for sun damaged and aging skin. I have neither at the moment but I was sent this to review so of course I gave it a whirl. Burt and I are good friends and I like much of what the brand has to offer however Burt’s Bees Carrot Nutritive Day Creme wasn’t particularly a fabulous find for me in regards to my face!

Find out what it did work for after the jump!

Burt’s Bees Carrot Nutritive Day Creme is extremely thick and quite waxy and greasy formula wise. Even my dry skin which normally sucks up any and all moisture it can get wasn’t too happy with this facial cream. I was quite excited when I first unscrewed the lid because I’m normally about diving into to thick creams especially ones for my face. But I did have to take into consideration it’s warmer right now and I wasn’t in need of such a highly moisturizing facial cream. I decided I’d try this as a night cream but turns out it’s far to rich to even use as a night cream. Hmmmm…what a terrible waste!

Good news is that Burt’s Bees Carrot Nutritive Day Creme isn’t particularly forgiving on my face but my rough elbows, knees, and jagged cuticles absolutely adore it. The cream is extra rich and moisturizing for my knees and elbows and it leaves behind a rather nice dewy, sheen on my legs. At $9.99-$14.99 in price for a rather nice size it’s well worth picking up for smoothing over rough skin areas such as cracked heels or feet for a quickie foot treatment, elbows, legs, and knees to whisk away dry skin and also great for moisturizing cuticles.

Even though it wasn’t working on my face, Burt’s Bees Carrot Nutritive Day Creme multitasked amazingly well as a great general moisturizer for special spots on my body plus it’s price tag and the small amount I had to use on rough areas made it a worthy beauty on a budget find.

Likey! Not a great facial cream but a rather wonderful rough area moisturizing treatment! I guess sometimes we have to find creatives uses for the things that don’t work for us and this definitely works well as a body moisturizer!

    Ha nice idea Muse :-) I often do the same thing, say if I get a cream/lotion or some samples that are too heavy for my face (REALLY oily skin), I usually just save the samples for travel and use the lotions/creams as body moisturizers.

    Glad to see I’m not the only one, yey! I tried a sample of that cream once, it smells nice…but the peppermint foot lotion is my fave especially for hot summer days. Sometimes when it’s super hot I’ll use it on my legs and part of my back to cool down, and it doesn’t smell like foot cream, just minty :-)

    Hah, I always end up using face creams I don’t love on my body. I can’t bear to throw anything out.
