I had awful acne as a teen. I mean really awful – sometimes I didn’t even want to leave the house. Thankfully when I reached my 20’s my skin cleared up. For the most part. I’m 26 now and have oily skin, and I still break out now and then.
Totally unfair, you know. I would have thought I had paid my dues as a teen. ;-)
1) I absolutely love Burt’s Bees products! I’ve used their eye gel (for dark circles) and their baby products and it is just the best stuff ever. I. Love. Burt’s. Bees.
2) I wanted the chance to try a natural acne treatment – I figured that if anyone could create a natural acne treatment that really worked, it would be Burt’s Bees!
The Burt’s Bees Natural Acne Treatment Solutions regimen consists of four steps and products. 1) Purifying Gel Cleanser, 2) Pore Refining Scrub, 3) Daily Moisturizing Lotion, and 4) Targeted Spot Treatment.
Yes, all of the ingredients are truly natural! Burt’s Bees uses black willow bark, a natural source of salicylic acid, as well as ingredients like calendula, tea tree extract, and goldenseal extract. Read more about the ingredients here!
I tried samples of the Purifying Gel Cleanser and the Spot Treatment, and was pleased with the results! I love love love the scent of the face wash – it smelled like honey and citrus to me. But not too strong. I love using it and my face doesn’t end up over-dry afterward, either. The cleanser includes the natural salicylic acid.
The spot treatment works well, too. I used it on a spot that popped up ever so inconveniently and the next day it was definitely looking better. It disappeared within a few days. It doesn’t sting and doesn’t over-dry the area. This bottle also will last for a long time so that adds to the value!
I’ve used these products for about three weeks and am very happy with the results. I wouldn’t say it’s a miracle cure, but it’s the perfect alternative to the harsher treatments available – I think it works just as well if not better. It’s definitely better for and kinder to your skin. I would definitely suggest giving it a try. I’ll be using this in the future for sure and can’t wait to try to the moisturizer and face scrub!
