Burt's Bee Natural Anti-Blemish Solution: Cleanser and Spot Treatment

Thank you BzzAgent for sending me a Burt’s Bees® Natural Anti-Blemish Solution package to share and review. The package included the Purifying Gel Cleanser, and Targeted Spot Treatment, and $10 off coupons. As mentioned earlier in my previous posts...that as a BzzAgent I have a code of conduct to abide to that is be a natural and honest communicator, a listener, and to have fun! I welcome all questions or comments. If you have them please leave them in the comment section below or send me an email at bioscisweetie[at]gmail[dot]com.

*The claim for the Anti-Blemish Purifying Gel Cleanser *
This cleanser is clinically proven to help wash away blemish causing bacteria, excess oil and impurities without over-drying or irritating skin. Salicylic Acid, derived naturally from Willow Bark Extract, penetrates pores to help reduce blemishes and prevent future breakouts. Evening Primrose and Beet Root Extracts help care for troubled skin resulting in clear and healthy-looking skin, naturally. Dermatologist tested. Noncomedogenic.
My experience with the cleanser:
  • Ease of use: A watery-cleanser that I pour a nickel size on to my wet hands. I work up a good lather and apply the cleanser on my face.
  • Results: A healthy glow. Reduces redness without drying out the skin, and prevents excess oil on the face.
  • Scent: Light herbal-ly and lemony smell.
Bottom line: I would definitely purchase the Anti-Blemish Purifying Gel Cleanser. Since it is 99.4% natural, I feel good using this cleanser. Retail price: $14.99 CAD.

* The claim for the Anti-Blemish Targeted Spot Treatment *
This natural spot treatment is clinically proven to help reduce and improve the appearance of blemishes without irritating skin. Formulated with Tea Tree, Calendula, Yarrow and Parsley Extracts to help care for troubled skin and reduce redness and Borage Extract to promote healthy skin resulting in clean and smooth skin, naturally. Dermatologist tested. Noncomedogenic.
 My experience with the Spot Treatment:
  • Ease of use: A watery-liquid that I pour on my finger tips then pat on my blemishes. The dispenser is not ergonomic - the first time I used the product I accidentally poured 25 percent of the treatment out.
  • Slight stinging but no further irritations - does not cause dry flaky skin
  • Improves the appearance of blemishes by reducing redness
  • Results: Gently settles acne over 2 to 3 days
  • Scent: Herbal black licorice. The smell dissipates very quickly, and it does take some time to get use to.
How I use the Spot Treatment: After washing my face I apply the watery-liquid to blemishes. I let the product sit for fifteen minutes then I moisturize.

Bottom line: I would only purchase the Anti-Blemish Targeted Spot Treatment if it was on sale. Retail price: $14.99 CAD.

@ comment #1 by Anonymous: Yes, I found that these two products help to reduce and prevent acne. The cleanser and spot treatment both have active Salicylic Acid 1.0% in it.

I've used them for over 1.5 weeks now and the results are pretty good. And to me they seem to minimize redness, and discoloration of scars.

I think these two products are appropriate for individuals who have oily or acne prone skin, irregardless of age.

I hope that helps. =)

hi! maybe this will help me. i had chicken pox and it's been 15 days now. The spot are dried already and shedding. What's left are red marks.

this is nice writing a review and at the same time have free products. God bless!

@ anSeL: Thanks for the comment.

I think it is best to make an appointment with your dermatologist and discuss creams that will minimize the scarring. In the meantime you can try over-the-counter-creams with Vitamin E. I definitely would not recommend you using Burt's Bees Anti-Blemish Solutions on your chicken pox marks.

Good luck! =)
