Do Burt's Bees natural products work?

I've been slowly trying to switch over to using natural products in my home and on my body. I can't stand to think of all the yucky chemicals that are in the other products that I've used for years.

As far as cleaners, it's been pretty easy to find good, natural cleaners. But as far as face, body and hair products go, it's been a lot of trial and error.

I was recently sent some of the Burt's Bees Natural Acne Solutions products to try. I was thrilled to try these since I hadn't tried them yet.

You can try them too! Giveaway with 2 winners at the end of this post!

I received the Purifying Gel Cleanser and the Targeted Spot Treatment from BzzAgent. (BzzAgent is a program that sends you free stuff to try out and tell people about. FYI: These opinions are my own and I will only give honest reviews.)

The Gel Cleanser is 99.4% natural and is great for reducing acne, removing make-up, excess oil and dirt. It has a strong, but pleasant scent. The scent only lasts while you wash, so no worries about your face smelling weird all day, lol.
The Gel Cleanser is very watery, so you need to be careful when you're squeezing some out of the bottle. But then it does foam nicely up once you rub it in your hands.

I really liked the way this cleanser left my skin feeling fresh, smooth, non-oily, but also not dry. I also liked that you only needed a small amount for each use. So your bottle, which sells for $9.99, will last quite some time.

I also got to try the Targeted Spot Treatment which is 100% natural. This stuff reduces redness within 24 hours, begins to reduce acne with 48 hours and helps to prevent future breakouts. The Spot Treatment is another one that is watery, but you simply use a cotton ball to put it on your face and again, a little bit goes a long way. So this $9.99 bottle will last for awhile as well!

I was very pleased with the Spot Treatment. It didn't dry out my skin like other acne products that I've used in the past.

These two Burt's Bees products have worked wonderfully for me. I have used them for about 2 weeks and my skin has been less oily and I've had less breakouts. The few breakouts that I did have, were cleared up quickly with the Spot Treatment.

Burt's Bees also makes a Pore Refining Scrub and a Daily Moisturizing Lotion. I'm looking forward to trying these out sometime too. Have any of you tried these yet? I'd love to know what you think about them.

Would you like to try out the Burt's Bees Targeted Spot Treatment? I have a few sample packs available and will send four samples to two lucky readers!
