I was invited to participate in the Burt Bees Intense Hydration BzzAgent campaign and I cannot being to explain how happy I was to be invited. As always, slots are always limited and not everyone will have that chance…and this campaign was without a doubt very popular and the “most wanted” at the time. I received these products free of charge to try and in exchange I give them my honest review. I was also excited because with the weather changing, my skin screams for moisture during these colder seasons. I was hoping I would give it some relief with these products.
We received a box full of full size products with samples and coupons included.
All of the products of the Intense Hydration line have the same scent; Clary Sage. The scent is fresh and smells of citrus and floral. Very refreshing. As described from Burt Bees website:
“Clary Sage, a remarkable botanical that thrives in its harsh environment because of its ability to retain moisture, is the inspiration behind Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration, our natural ode to soft, supple, revitalized skin and our best natural anti-aging solution. Our cream cleanser leaves your skin incredibly soft while our day lotion, eye cream and night cream help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Add the treatment mask for an immediate dose of hydration to give your skin a revitalized look.”
A little information straight from Burt Bees website:
It’s featured in Intense Hydration because of its exceptional ability to trap and retain moisture. The resulting formula is not some wussy layer that softens for all of 5 minutes.
97% of the women who tried Intense Hydration Day Lotion said their skin showed an increase in hydration after 1 hour and continued to feel that way even after 4 hours.
93% of women who used the Night Cream for 3 weeks said their skin felt intensely hydrated.
100% of those who tested the entire regimen – that’s right, every last one of them – confirmed their skin felt hydrated after 6 weeks.

Here are my experiences with the products:
Intense Hydration Treatment Mask-$18.00. The Intense Hydration Treatment is said to “Intensely hydrate[s] the skin.” The mask has a thick creamy consistency. Although it is very thick and it feels slightly greasy, after 1 application my skin felt awesome! This type of mask is not washed off like most others, it’s wiped off with a towel or tissue. My skin felt very smooth and refreshed and the greasy feeling eventually faded away within the hour. My skin felt very moisturized. A little goes a long way. After trying all 3 products, this product is #1 and will remain at the top of my list. Per Burt Bees, its good to follow up with this product only 1-2 a week. It’s definitely a must have during the winter/colder season.
Intense Hydration Night Cream-$18.00. I used this thick, pasty night cream sparingly. This product definitely took its time sinking in my skin. After sleeping for 6 hours and waking up the next morning, my face was still soft and moisturized. It was not as dry as it normally is without the product. Overall, out of the 3 products I tried, this one comes in at #3 for me.
Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser-$10.00 – This Cream Cleanser is not like most. It is not a cleanser that lathers; there are no bubbles so this took some getting used to. I’ve been using face cleansers for over 15 years and they all produce bubbles. The Burt Bees Cream Cleanser has a consistency of lotion. This lotion does not strip your face of it’s natural oils yet, hydrates and restores that moisture. I only needed to follow up the cleanser with a light moisturizer because my face was already hydrated and moisturized from the cleanser alone. A little goes a long way. This is my #2 favorite product of the two.
My overall opinion about Burt Bees Intense Hydration products is…..that they are awesome. They will continue to be a staple in my daily beauty regimen. I have nothing but good to say about these products. So far, they have helped immensely with my dry skin during the cold weather. The only con with these products is that some of them are a little on the pricey side. But I am definitely going to implement the Intense Hydration day lotion. I will mostly definitely recommend these products to more friends and family. You can find these products at mass retailers, some grocery stores and drugstores.
