Burt’s Bees Radiance Night Creme, Review

April 29, 2011Kelly Baum

I have a little .25 oz sample jar of the Burt’s Bees Radiance Night Creme with Royal Jelly from this Burt’s Bees kit, but there’s also a full size version here, a 2oz size for roughly $17.
This jar is pretty large for a sample size so I’m rather impressed. I’ve been using it for 2 weeks now and am only about 1/4 through which is very good. It’s a solid glass jar with a screw on cap that can be screwed very tight so the product stays fresh.
As for the product itself, it’s a white, creamy color with a creamier consistency than most of the moisturizers I’ve used. There’s a very prominent shimmer to the product, hence the ‘radiance’, but it doesn’t transfer to my face at all.
As for the actual moisturizing, it does a good job. I know that before I used this product, my skin was very dry due to the weather and now it looks healthy again. I don’t feel oily at all, my skin just feels…normal.
My only problem is the smell-it can be very overwhelming. It’s very floral, and the first time I put it on, I had to go wash my face to get it off. But after a few uses, the smell didn’t bother me as badly.
The Pros:
I love the faint shimmer, and my skin feels so lovely after using it. I also love the fact that it’s so natural, proving that you don’t need all the chemicals to feel healthy.
The Cons:
This is pricey. It’s a bit out of my budget, which is why I bought the sample kit to try it in. The smell is also very irritable, but easy to overcome.
The Bottom Line
I would have gone higher if it weren’t for the fragrance. It’s definitely something Burt’s Bees could improve on! If you’re looking to try this, definitely look for the Radiance sample kit online or in stores because for the amount of product you’re getting for around $10 is a great deal, especially if you want to try them out before you go full size!
