Burt’s Bees Radiance range includes six face products (day cream, night cream, cleanser, toner, serum, and eye cream) that are supposed to enhance skin’s radiance, reduce the appearance of fine lines and nourish the skin. All products in the collection are enriched with natural ingredients to boost a healthy glowing complexion. The main ingredient, and a hero of the line, is royal jelly – produced by bees ‘cocktail’ of 17 amino acids, vitamins B1, B2, B5, B6, C and E, along with Biotin, Niacin and Folic Acid – a real food for your skin.
I’ve tried Radiance Cleanser, formulated with a plant-based complex cleanser that removes dirt, oil and makeup. The cleanser has a rather lightweight, lotion like consistency but cleans very well, leaving your skin clearer, fresh and nourished. It works well removing even quite heavy makeup. I could swear that this stuff has calmed my skin and improved its general appearance. I normally go for a bit thicker formulas but I have to say I really liked using it, so much so that I’ll definitely repurchase. It smells a bit odd but nothing you can’t get used to :) The cleanser is 99.2% natural. Comes in a 175ml plastic bottle with a pump.
Radiance Day Cream is also an excellent product. It comes in a convenient 55g glass jar, which I quite liked. It has a lightweight, almost whipped consistency, yet when you put it on your face, it feels very concentrated. Only small amount is needed, otherwise it may take a while to sink in. The cream feels very moisturizing, almost quenching on your skin. At the same time it’s not greasy and did not cause any breakouts on my blemish prone, combination skin. It doesn’t work wonders in terms of giving your skin an amazing boost of radiance but over a longer period of time, it definitely helped my complexion to look more even and healthier. It works well under makeup. The cream is 98.2% natural and would be suitable for almost every skin type, perhaps with an exception of a very dry skin that may need something more nourishing.
