This time of year, the weather can be brutal on your skin. A combination of cold temperatures outside and low humidity from heated air inside, causes dry, chapped and itchy skin. On the surface your skin appears dull, flaky, and tight, but at a microscopic level your skin’s natural protective barrier is gone. The lack of barrier allows chemicals and foreign bodies to invade the skins surface, resulting in redness, irritation and sensitivity.
I have extremely sensitive skin all year long. When winter’s wind blows, I shutters to think how my skin will reaction. Being a BzzAgent, I was offered the opportunity to test out Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration line; Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser with Clary Sage and Intense Hydration night cream. As the flakes, cracks and itchiness began to occur on my skin I jumped at the opportunity.
Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser with Clary Sage
Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser with Clary Sage’s claim to fame is it “provides intense hydration and helps reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles”. My initial reaction to the product was the smell. As soon as I opened the bottle I was treated to a fresh, clean smell. It wasn’t over powering like some of the other cleanser products on the market, but had enough of a scent that it didn’t smell medicinal. The textures was smooth and creamy and lathered nicely on my face. Having sensitive skin, I was extremely worried about the outcome. I was worried it would sting or burn upon application and cause a reaction afterwords. I am extremely happy to report that I did not experience any negative reaction and enjoyed the experience thoroughly.
Intense Hydration night cream’s claim to fame is “Replenishes moisture while you sleep-wake up to skin that feels soft, supple and revitalized”. Again my first reaction was the clean, fresh sage smell. It had exactly the same characteristics as the Cream cleanser. Looking at the cream in the jar, I expected it to be thick and heavy. I’m happy to report the opposite. The cream felt light and fluffy on my face. It absorbed quickly and wasn’t greasy feeling at all.
