Pimples suck. Pimples when you are in your 30s suck even more. I always thought that when I hit adulthood that my zits would go away, but I was wrong. Now I am 32 and still dealing with pimples. They get worse when I am stressed or hormonal. On top of that, I also have to worry about wrinkles. I need to find products that work to combat both my pimples and prevent wrinkles. Pimples and wrinkles…what an odd combination!
I was excited to try Burt’s Bees Daily Moisturizing Lotion which is part of their new Natural Anti-Blemish Solutions line. It’s made from natural ingredients like Lemongrass, Witch Hazel, Goldenseal and Hops which work to protect your skin against blemishes. I like that it is natural and doesn’t irritate my skin. Often times with anti-acne products, my skin gets red and dry because of the ingredients used to stop the acne. It is also formulated with Salicylic Acid that is naturally derived from Willow Bark Extract. This works to penetrate the pores to reduce blemishes and prevent future breakouts.
I found it very lightweight and not greasy at all. It was gentle and didn’t burn when I applied it after washing my face. It absorbs right away and I liked that I was not shiny afterwards. Some moisturizers aren’t good for my oily skin, but this one from Burt’s Bees was a good fit. I was able to apply my makeup right away after applying.
I think that it is helping my skin. It feels softer and smoother. I would love to try the other products in the Burt’s Bees Natural Anti-Blemish Solutions!
