Burt’s Bees New Line for Sensitive Skin!

First up, I’m a BzzAgent. That means I fill out a few surveys with my likes and interestes and every so often I have the opportunity to sign up for a campaign in which I can try a new product and share it with others. Then I report back to with all of the feedback, both positive and negative. I love doing this because I get to try new products without risking my hard earned cash!

I am particularly excited about the latest Campaign. I went to the post office this morning and picked up my BzzKit which contained a full sized Burt’s Bees Sensitive Skin Daily Facial Cleanser ($12.99 CDN) and a full sized Sensitive Skin Facial Moisturizer ($24.99 CDN). I was anticipating their arrival so I had not yet moisturized my face.

Now I want to be clear on something…I have used Oil of Olay Lotion for Sensitive Skin for at least 15 years, if not more. My skin gets so dry and insanely itchy when I get out of the shower or after I have washed it. It gets red and blotchy, oily and flaky, has large pores and basically sucks.

I dropped my kids off at my parents’ house (gotta love snow days!), gave my mother a sample of the moisturizer to try, and used the moisturizer myself. The relief was instant! It is fragrance free but had a pleasant natural product smell. Oh, by the way, did I mention that these are fantastically natural products with cotton extract to protect your skin?

It is nearing the end of the work day and my face has not been itchy at all. So far, so good! I can’t wait to try out the facial cleanser tonight before I go to bed. There is also an eye cream and night cream in this line. I’m so looking forward to being able to try something new and support a company I love. I hope you’ll try them too! I’ve got more moisturizer samples so please let me know if you want one.

Check out for more information.
