There are a lot of beauty products on the market a brand I had never tried before was Burt's Bees. My friend Toni raves about them and it is the only product she will use on her face. Being a great friend as she is she got me a few Burt's Bees items for me to try.
Burt's Bees - Soap Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream:
'Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream is a rich, sulfate-free facial cleanser is made with a gentle, yet effective plant-based cleansing complex featuring quillaja saponaria (soap) bark extract and witch hazel. Luxurious lather foams away excess dirt, oil and make-up leaving skin feelling clean and refreshed. Extracts of chamomile, echinacea and aloe help calm skin while glycerin and cocoa butter provide a touch of moisture for naturally fresh, healthy skin.'
I have used a good many different face cleansing over the years and I have to say this has jumped right to the top of my list. I've been using this product for around four weeks now and the feeling it gives my skin is just amazing.
My only thing is as it is a pretty much natural product (98% they claim) it has a massive ingredients list, however it is sulfate, parabens, phthalates and petrochemical free. Not tested on animals which is a big plus on my list and is BUVA approved.
Using this product is nice and easy, wet your face then apply a small amount of the cleanser to your finger tips and massage over the face. You only need a small amount it goes go along way, it has a slight cooling effect when applying to the skin but in a refreshing way.
It smooths over my skin with ease, you don't really get a much of a lather with this one but you can certainly feel the cleansed feeling over the skin as you are using the cream.
Once massaged over the skin you simply rinse off, straight away I could feel a difference and I was surprised on what a big difference too. I have always looked after my skin and it was already smooth but this made it softer like a fresh skin feel.
Looking at my skin in the mirror too it looked refreshed and ready to start the day; I couldn't believe the big difference from just my first use. Each time I use this product I still get that amazingly clean and fresh feel which will last pretty much the whole day.
The cream itself is white in colour and has a slight thick consistency. There is a sweet clean scent to it with a slight menthol hint to it. All in all very refreshing, the product comes in a plastic tube there smaller sized ones the lids are screw off but nice and easy to get the content out. Once empty it is fully recyclable too.
Price and Availability:
170g tube will cost around £11, this will last for months I had two of the 20g tubes and only just finished one of them. That was using it every morning and most nights for around four weeks, I personally think that is good value for money.
You can purchase direct from there website, where it is easy to get carried away! Or places like Boots also stock their products.
I can not get across really on how much I love this product, just started my last tube now so I know I have another four weeks left. I think I will certainly be purchasing more as just how refreshed and livened up my face feels each time I just love it!
It doesn't state what skin type this is for, I have a sensitive to combination skin and I have no problems with this what so ever. But if you are worried when trying a new product a patch test is always recommend.
I fully recommend this product no doubting my five stars!
Thank you for reading.

This clenser is very thick when you squeeze it out of the tube and looks like it's going to be very heave-duty. However, once you massage it onto your skin it is very gentle and doesn't dry out your skin. It does need a few minutes of massaging in to really work, but it is worth it as your skin does feel truly clean afterwards. I found it difficult to wash off properly with just my hands and water, but if you use a flannel your skin feels really fresh. I would recommend using a toner afterwards, as this is a creamy formula and the toner just gets rid of any last traces. This clenser has been excellent on both my dry forehead and oily nose - a real all-rounder.
One word of warning - a little goes a long way! About a 2cm squeeze is enough for your whole face but this makes this clenser really good value.
