All throughout high school I had impeccable skin- clear, smooth and free of blemishes. Not until my late 20's did acne rear it's ugly head. I have tried what seems like every product to hit the market. Some worked well. Others, not so much. But these days I face the added challenge of not wanting to use harmful chemicals on my skin. That's where Burt's Bees Natural Acne Solutions comes in to play.
When the system was sent to me to to try it sounded great on paper, but I've been let down before. Still, I figured it was worth a shot. The first thing I noticed was that it smells great (that's always a plus, no?). But lots of things smell great. That doesn't mean they work or that they're good for your skin. Moving on...
The cleanser contains Salicylic Acid naturally derived from Willow Bark Extract which clears out pores to reduce and prevent acne, as well as Evening Primrose Oil and Root Beet Extracts which soothe skin. The moisturizing lotion is made with Lemongrass, Witch Hazel, Goldenseal and Hops to calm irritation. Good stuff! But does it work?
After using Burt's Bees Natural Acne Solutions for just over a month I can say that I have noticed a good deal of improvement in the condition of my skin. I do still occasionally experience breakouts with hormone fluctuation, but it's much better than it was before. I should mention that I have sensitive skin and one of the best things about the system is that it works well without drying out my skin.
The cleanser sells for $9.99 and the moisturizing lotion for $17.99 at Target, Walgreens, and natural grocery stores. I received the reviewed products as a PR freebie.
