This is part of the birthday gifts from Burt's Bees. I took it along for my Taiwan trip. On most days except for the day I took my wedding pictures, I wasn't wearing any makeup. Just usual skincare and sunscreen. So I guess this is good enough to melt the dirt.

Unfortunately I didn't love this cleansing cream. It gave me a cooling, tingling sensation each use - in a way I didn't like. Felt a little burning sensation on my upper lip (nope, I did not shave nor have any blemishes there).

This didn't lather at all. But as cream, I didn't expect it to lather anyway. It felt quite drying on my oily combination skin... yet I didn't feel it was enough to really clean my skin; and would follow up with foam cleanser.

Its a shame.. I find that Burt's Bees facial products don't quite work for me..
The probably good thing is that, it is 98.8% natural?
