Burt's Bees Natural Skin Solutions - Soap-Free Cleanser for Sensitive Faces

Every year around winters, my skin goes cranky and decides to go the dry and flaky route, and with the heater soaking up any humidity, this problem just gets worsened.  While I don't change my moisturizer, I do switch to a more creamy face wash to avoid stripping out any more moisture than I need to from my face.  The Burt's Bees Facial Cleanser for Sensitive Skin, a cream cleanser with cotton extracts, aloe, and rice extracts to do a gentle clean, seemed like the perfect solution for my skin's winter woes.

Burt's Bees Facial Cleanser for Sensitive Skin - Review

This is a soap-free creamy cleanser, which means it looks and feels like a thick lotion.  I use this as directed, applying the creamy cleanser with my fingers, massaging it in, and rinsing it off.  The cleanser is quite gentle and does an okay job at removing my makeup, but I don't use waterproof makeup so it's not that difficult to take it off in the first place!  Because of it's "moisturizing" ingredients, the cleanser leaves behind a hint of oiliness in the skin rather than washing off squeaky clean.  Perhaps because of this, along with the fact that it doesn't really manage to take off every bit of makeup on my face, using this cleanser on a regular basis gives me tiny bumps on my face - the little warning bells before the big pimples turn up!  To avoid breakouts, I alternate this with my favorite Olay Daily Facials Cleansing Cloths.  Needless to say, this Burt's Bees cleanser is not really my favorite, and I keep it for days when I don't have much to take off from my face.

While this isn't going to be my must-have cleanser any time soon (or ever I guess), this might work just fine for the dry-normal skin types, especially during the winters. As for me, for a creamy cleanser that leaves my skin clean without drying it out, I would pick the Burt's Bees Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream instead.
