Burt's Bees Natural Skin Solutions Sensitive Facial Cleanser - Review

BzzAgent was nice enough to send me a full sized tube of Burt's Bees newest cream cleanser, with cotton extract, just like the moisturizer reviewed here. Like with the moisturizer, while I received this product for free, I'm not being compensated in any way to say only positive things about it, although, I do like it.

Burt's Bees says:
This soap-free cream cleanser is clinically proven to moisturize sensitive skin while gently cleansing away dirt, oil and make-up without over drying or causing redness. Distinctly formulated with softening Cotton Extract to help skin replenish its outer layer and minimize the effects of potential irritants such as harsh soaps or cleansers, it also moisturizes with Rice Extract and soothes with Aloe. Naturally gentle and skin-friendly for daily use, it’s what every sensitive product should be.
  • Softens and helps replenish skin's outer layer with Cotton Extract
  • Gently removes dirt, oil and make-up without over drying or causing redness
  • Formulated with Quillaja and Yucca Extracts to help remove impurities without stripping essential moisture
  • Fragrance-free and hypo-allergenic
  • Allergy-tested and dermatologist-tested

For $10 (the MSRP), you get a 6 oz tube of creamy, moisturizing face wash. I was a little surprised that there were no suds from this cleanser, and yet, it manages to remove my face make up relative easily, using a minimal amount. I remove my eye makeup separately, however. 
It really reminds me of sweetened condensed milk - thick, creamy, semi-transparent but not really.The amount shown above is enough for my face. My skin doesn't sting or tingle when using this cleanser, and feels softer after I've rinsed my face. I was relieved to find this cleanser rinsed very cleanly, since I'm not used to cream cleansers. 

The scent is... interesting. It's sort of medicinal, herbal, and floral mix. It's not unpleasant, and doesn't seem to last. 

Overall, I like this cleanser. I like others better, but, if you're in the market, and have a coupon or find Burt's Bees on sale somewhere, I'd recommend this one!
