Burt’s Bees Premium Grab Bag Review: What’s Inside Burt’s Bees Premium Grab Bag?

‘ello there!

I think owe some of you a major apology. I recently raved the Burt’s Bees Premium Grab Bags that were on sale for $24.99. Now it’s been years since I’ve seen this but was every so delighted they were back again. I ordered three bags total, one for myself, one for my sis, and one for my friend Sue.

The last time I ordered there bags had to be 2 or 3 years back and at the time I was simply delighted with all the goodies they included which far exceeded the $25 price tag but this year I got my order and was very, very disappointed. I hope those of you who ordered weren’t too disappointed by the bag which is why I owe you each an apology if you were as I recommended this assuming they’d be as good as year’s past and sadly…they just weren’t.

Sigh.

Reader’s Request: Burt’s Bees Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream Review

Burt%27s+Bees+Soap+Bark+and+Chamomile+Deep+Cleansing+Cream+004

I’ve gotten a fair few request to do more reviews on Burt’s Bees products. One particularly item that pops up again and again when asked for reviews would be Burt’s Bees Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream. Considering it’s price of $7.99 and 97% natural ingredients it’s understandable why it appeals but the real question is does it work?

Click ahead to hear more.

Although it promises a gentle, effective cleaning I got more of a drying, tightness from it after use. Cleansing soap bark and healing aloe vera are promised to moisturize and soften my skin while removing makeup and dirt but for the most part it ended up drying my face out further than it already was and making it uncomfortably tight.

The rich, opaque cream lathers up nicely has a soothing, herbal scent and removes makeup well enough (just the standard fair such as foundation, a bit of blush, etc…) but sadly doesn’t do much for my dry skin. If you’re oily this may be an ideal cleanser for you especially considering it did wonders for my shiny forehead but sadly if you sport dry skin best skip this one as it won’t lend any favors to those that already sport dryness.

Although it’s healthy ingredients and inexpensive price tag appeals I can’t say the results were worth either. Those who have oily skin may appreciate the drying element of the formula and it’s cheap price tag but anyone with dry skin would probably do best seeking something else.
