Burt's Bees - Facial Cleanser with Orange Oil Orange Essence - 4.34 oz. (123 g)
Burt's Bees Orange Essence Facial Cleanser with Orange Oil is an award-winning facial cleanser that gently removes all traces of dirt, oil, makeup and pollutants while moisturizing and conditioning the skin. This gentle and moisturizing cleanser is especially effective on sensitive and normal-to-dry complexions. Natural cleansers and emollients leave your face radiantly clean and replenished without the parched tight feeling associated with harsh, synthetic cleansers or detergent-like soaps.
How Orange Essence Facial Cleanser Works
With orange oil to cleanse and purify, and olive oil and aloe vera to soothe, moisturize and condition, this formula is perfect for refreshing, hydrating cleansing. It's designed to clean and replenish without the tight after-feel that harsh soaps and detergents can leave behind.
Orange Oil: Citrus Aurantium Dulcis. Obtained by expressing the cold, fresh peel of the orange tree, a smallish tree native to China and India, now cultivated in Brazil, Cypress, Israel, Mexico and the United States. About 800 oranges yield one pound of orange oil. Valued for its zesty and refreshing, sweet yet tart aroma. In skin care preparations, orange oil reduces puffiness and discourages dry wrinkled skin. Both the oil and the peel are used to stimulate circulation, clear blemishes, and increase perspiration, thus assisting the release of toxins from dull or blemished skin. The peel is used as a natural exfoliator.
Burt's Bees Frequently Asked Questions
Are your products hypoallergenic?
There is no defined methodology to test for allergic reactions in beauty or personal care products, nor does the FDA regulate use of the term "hypoallergenic."

Burt's Bees products are made with natural ingredients.

This is an awesome cleanser for the winter months if your skin gets dry. It smells great and is so gentle on the skin. Very moisturizing so do not use if you have oily skin. I use it every other day in the summer when my skin is not as dry. It leaves my face soft and smooth.
This works pretty good. But the citric scent is something too strong. I also have oily skin, so I have to wash my face again with facial soap again to get rid of oils. It might be good for dry skin, but for me, it's alright.
I love it. Yes it is very much like vasoline but I only use it to remove my eye makeup. For that purpose, it works great.
Horrible. It's like washing your face with petroleum jelly or something.
This is a great idea. I love natural products for my face. But yikes, the little sample packet I had from the travel kit broke my face out like nobody's business and that was just one or two uses! (And I have dry skin!) I shudder to think what would happen if I bought the whole bottle and actually used it more. This stuff is weird--way too much wax in it. I'm glad it works for some people. I wish that it worked for me. I would like a natural cleanser. :(
I love this product! The orange scent is invigorating. I put it on dry and it actually feels like it's heating up as I rub it in. I then add an apricot scrub and wash everything off. My face feels very soft and smooth. I ten to have combination skin with and oil t-zone. The 'oily' feel of the cleaner does not affect the quality of the product. I love it.
Love this for taking make up off!
I love this face cleanser. It never feels dry or tight after using. And it smells wonderful. I think it is great that it is 100% natural,
wonderful for dry and/or aging skin
Finally, an orange based skin product that doesn't smell like cleaner! This face wash is thick and rich, with a texture like syrupy honey (hence the brand) and the orange smell is just strong enough to be pleasant. It lathered just enough to gently cleanse. I would recommend this for daily use, hands down.
