Burt’s Bees Bzz Kit Is Here!

Yes, that is right!  After a short wait, I received my Bzz kit for the Burt’s Bees Sensitive Skin campaign.


I was really hoping that the kit would arrive before we left on our trip and lo and behold, there it was sitting in the entry way as I came in the door yesterday!! :)  Considering that I didn’t really know exactly what I would be getting, I was so pumped to open that sucker up right away.  I think I might have even still had my stinky barn coat on while I opened it!

Right on top was the usual letter from BzzAgent welcoming me to the campaign and giving me the low-down.

Next up, the in-depth Bzz guide about the Burt’s Bees Natural Skin Solutions for Sensitive Skin.  One thing I learned right off the bat was that these products are 99% all-natural!!  I had realized that they were made of all-natural ingredients going into this, however I didn’t realize that the percentage was that high. Kudos to Burt’s Bees for that one.

And then the products were revealed!

I received a full size bottle of facial cleanser

A full size bottle of moisturizing lotion


And some sample sizes of the lotion to pass around to friends and family so that they can test the product too.

I didn’t waste any time and got to testing out these suckers right away.  I have used the products twice now – last night, and again this morning – so here is my initial review:

The Facial Cleanser Initial Review:

First of all, as I mentioned already, I was very impressed with the ingredient list of this product.  Being 99% all-natural gives it a big thumbs up in my books.  My first reaction upon beginning to clean my face with this product was that there is very little to no scent.  Although I like nice smelling stuff, I take this as a good thing since most scents in other products are probably from unnatural sources.  The cleanser went on nice and smooth just like a cream and rinsed off clean.  My face felt very clean after rinsing, and also felt very soft.  Very nice!  I will definitely continue to use it.

The Moisturizing Cream Initial Review:

I have a BIG negative with this cream right off the bat, which is unfortunate.  Since it is made up of 99% all-natural ingredients, it contains no SPF.  I am really adamant about using a cream with SPF in the morning to protect my skin throughout the day. (I even use a make up with SPF for extra protection).  Putting that issue aside, I have decided that I will start using this as my night cream since I won’t be sleeping out in the sun. ;)  I used the cream last night and it went on very nicely.  My skin soaked it up right away and it was not greasy at all.  That is a big plus in my books!  I will definitely continue to use this as my night cream only.

Overall:

I give these products a big 2 thumbs up after the initial review and look forward to seeing how my skin reacts to them over a prolonged period of time.  I will check back after several weeks of use for another update!

  1. I love Burt’s Bee’s bath products. I like to use it on the kids too. Am currently using the peppermint & rosemary body wash and it is so refreshing! I think they smell divine too! I love their lip balm, their cuticle cream is fantastic.
    Good score with the samples – the only downfall to their products are the price tag, though I always splurge and buy them.
