Burt's Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser Review

Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser

Today I’m talking about the Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser. I first picked this product up on my trip to Key West, Florida because I’d forgotten my facial cleanser and it is one of the cruelty-free brands that’s easy to find. It did not disappoint!

About Burt’s Bees

Burt’s Bees is cruelty-free and Leaping Bunny Certified. I think of Burt’s Bees as the first clean beauty brand because they strive for 100% natural origin formulas, and all of their products are over 95% natural origin. They formulate without phthalates, parabens, petrolatum, and sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). They visit their key raw materials sites for ethically sourced ingredients.

Burt’s Bees invests globally in communities that support their supply chain, helping to safeguard access to clean water, support women’s and children’s empowerment, and promote health, safety and biodiversity. They participate in the Global Shea Alliance, Natural Resources Stewardship Council, Sedex and AIM-Progress.

Burt’s Bees is a CarbonNeutral certified company that has landfill-free operations. They offset their annual water consumption through watershed restoration projects. The Burt’s Bees Foundation supports honeybee health and biodiversity too. I genuinely think we need to be acknowledging the responsible companies that are out there and exert pressure on the ones that are not.

About the Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser

Burt’s Bees claims that this cleanser will gently remove dirt, oil and makeup without causing redness or irritation, infused with Cotton Extract, which softens and can help shield skin from potential irritant, 98.9% natural. Avoid contact with the eyes, so no using it to remove eye makeup.

If you’re looking for a facial cleanser that will make your skin feel as soft as a baby’s bottom, look no further than the Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser. From the first use, your skin will feel silky soft. I also started doing the 60 second rule with my facial cleanser once I started using this. If you’ve never heard of this rule, it’s where you use your finger tips to cleanse your face for 60 seconds. I literally look at the clock to make sure I do it for at least 60 seconds because I often think I’ve done enough when it’s only been about 20 seconds! Washing for 60 seconds helps to soften your skin and dislodge any sebum blockages. I saw an immediate improvement in my skin’s texture and overall appearance once I started using this 60 second rule.

The Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser is thick and white, similar to a conditioner, when you squeeze it out. I put it into my damp hands and massage over my face for at least 60 seconds, avoiding my eyes. Then I rinse. There’s no fragrance, just soft, happy skin. It doesn’t leave me feeling stripped or tight, as a lot of cleansers are wont to do.

What surprised me the most about this cleanser is that Dave loves it! He has sensitive skin and hates most skincare products because he says they all cause him to break out. Not Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser! He loves it to bits.

Finally, it’s almost impossible to beat the value of this cleanser. It’s typically around $9.99 for 6 oz. I can’t think of another facial cleanser for sensitive skin in this price range that gives you the same amount of value for the price.

If you have sensitive skin, you need to try this hidden drugstore gem, the Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser. It’s Phyrra approved!

Tags from the story


  • Didn’t Burt’s Bees enter the Chinese market sometime last year? Wouldn’t that make them no longer cruelty free?

    • Burt’s Bees is still cruelty-free. They have not lost their Leaping Bunny certification. They are selling in China in approved ways. It’s becoming easier to sell in China and remain cruelty-free. Some brands, such as Burt’s Bees, Paul Mitchell, Nudestix, etc are able to do it.

  • I think I might pick this one up for my husband and daughter. I’m filing this brand away for when I forget something from my beauty routine while I’m travelling.

  • I really like their products myself. Especially ones for lips, The prices are great and I like the results.

  • I’ve been off Burt’s Bees since their Brightening Skin Perfecting Serum proved to be a bit of a dud for me, but if you recommend this cleanser so highly, I might give them another chance.
