Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Review

Introducing Intense Hydration from Burt's Bees, a new face care line with Clary Sage. Just like the rest of the brand's products, this skin care line is carefully crafted from the best ingredients nature has to offer.

Clary Sage: Deep in the windswept hills of the Mediterranean, a lone plant fights for its life against elements. Clary Sage survives and thrives in spite of its harsh surroundings, thanks to the plant's fierce will and exceptional ability to adapt and retain moisture. This remarkable botanical is the inspiration behind Bur's Bees Intense Hydration line.

Intense Hydration Night Cream

Because of the cold and dry winter weather, my skin had become really dry and chapped. I was recently introduced to this moisturizer, and after trying the moisturizer for a couple of weeks (every night), I've noticed my skin's texture has improved noticeably. The product comes in a glass jar packaged in a box. Although it looks nice, I'd still prefer it in a pump or tube for hygienic and sanitary reasons.

The lotion made my skin feel so much softer. It is gentle on my sensitive skin and did not cause any irritations. I also really like the nice fragrance. It's a little strong for me in my opinion, but it didn't really bother me as it fades away when it absorbs. It's not too overpowering.

The cream is quite thick, not as runny like some of the other brands. It does absorb quickly.

With this moisturizer, I'm not just using it over my face, but on areas (such as, elbows, feet, and especially my hands) that needed more attention.

This is what my super dry hands look like before:

My moisturized hands after using the product for a couple weeks:

Features & Benefits:
* replenishes moisture while you sleep
* skin feels soft, supple and revitalized
* provides intense hydration
* helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles
* absorbs quickly and is non-greasy

I also received several small sample sized packs that I passed on to some of my friends and family to try.

Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser

I also received a tube of the cream cleanser to try. This creamy cleanser cleans quite well. It has a nice, mild scent as well, but not as strong as the Intense Hydration Night Cream in my opinion. I like the idea of the squeeze tube as it makes it convenient to dispense the amount I needed.

Features & Benefits:
* provides intense hydration and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
* leaves skin feeling soft, supple and revitalized
* removes dirt, oil and makeup
* rinses easily without leaving a residue

Disclosure: I received samples of Burt's Bees Intense Hydration for review as part of the BzzAgent Campaign. The opinions expressed are my own personal and honest thoughts. No other compensation was given.
