Hi all,

Here comes the review of the day lotion from the intense hydration range by Burt’s Bees.  I have already reviewed the cream cleanser from this range here.

     Burt’s Bees intense hydration day lotion comes in a white plastic packaging with a pump which is quite sturdy and travel-friendly.   But, the opaque packaging makes it harder to see how much product is left. The cream smells similar to the cleanser but I find this more pleasant smelling as it is not as strong as the cleanser and the smell fades away few seconds post application.  The lotion is almost cream-like in texture, little thick but spreads well and get absorbed into the skin within few seconds of massage.  Once absorbed, it leaves the skin well hydrated and does not feel greasy at all. But, one problem is due to its thick texture, if you are prone to sweating it might sweat a little, during heavy winters I do not feel any sweating but during less cold climate, it sweats for some time around my mouth and nose.  This does not contain any SPF which is the drawback.  If you have dry skin and also if you get dry patches during winters like me this cream will take few days to completely smoothen the dry patches.  Thus, the most important factor I liked in this cream is that, though it is a bit thick, it gets absorbed completely and does not give any greasy feeling at all which is quite a surprise and hydrates the skin well. But, if you are used to the kind of lotions/creams that gives the skin a plump kind of feeling (hope you understand what I mean :D) this does not give any such feeling but just leave the skin hydrated and protective from the harsh cold weather and when you wash your face, you can feel the layer of cream still there.  If you have dry skin, do not sweat in winters and can find the day lotion easily available, then you will like it more.  It does have its shortcomings, but it really helped my skin to remain moisturized during the harsh winter in Finland and I did not need any extra moisturizer during the day after I applied this day lotion, so I ended liking it quite well.

Pros

Beautiful packaging with pump

Creamy texture that spreads well

Pleasant smell (though it is a personal preference)

Moisturizing without feeling greasy

Suits dry or combination dry skin well

Ingredient list looks promising with 99% natural extracts & oils

Available widely in shops & online in the USA

Cons

Cannot see how much product is left due to the opaque packaging

Make areas around nose and mouth sweat for few minutes when initially applied if you are prone to sweating when applied during less cold weather condition

Does not improve skin tone or make any difference to the skin

No Sunblock/SPF

Availability and the cost difference is definitely a problem other than the USA

Prettykooll rating: 4/5 (Though it has cons, this proved to be one of the best moisturizing creams during the harsh Finnish winter)
