Review: Burt’s Bees Natural Acne Solutions Daily Moisturizing Lotion


If you’re dealing with acne, it can be difficult to choose a moisturiser that makes your skin soft without causing breakouts. Some lotions will make your skin too oily, which prompts spots, blackheads, and inflammation. Other lotions that are marketed for acne-prone skin contain harsh chemicals that can cause irritation and excessive dryness. It’s important to find a product that strikes a balance between light moisturising and gentle acne prevention.

Burt’s Bees may have the answer. You’re probably familiar with the brand’s popular range of lip products, but they also have a comprehensive set of skin solutions. For people with skin that often breaks out, the Natural Acne Solutions Daily Moisturizing Lotion provides a gentle boost without the harsh chemicals.

The lightweight formula contains lemongrass, witch hazel, goldenseal and hops, which helps to soothe skin that is inflamed or irritated. Naturally-sourced willow bark extract, which contains salicylic acid, penetrates deep into the pores to help gently unclog them and prevent further breakouts.

The Burt’s Bees Natural Acne Solutions Daily Moisturizing Lotion is formulated from 99% natural ingredients, so you can be assured that your skin is moisturised with ingredients that are gentle and safe enough for everyday use. Clinical studies have shown that this lotion helps to control oil and protect against blemishes, which is an excellent combination for acne-prone skin.

This product has been dermatologically tested and is safe for everyday use. Although Burt’s Bees claim that it is best used in conjunction with the rest of the Natural Acne Solutions range, it is best to integrate it with your regular cleansing regime. When your skin is acne-prone, finding the most effective cleanser can be an arduous task in itself; it’s therefore always worth adding a new product to your usual routine in the first instance. An entire switch of routine may be too drastic a change for your skin, which can prompt reactive breakouts.

Each bottle of Burt’s Bees Natural Acne Solutions Daily Moisturizing Lotion contains 2oz of product. Users have noted that only a small amount needs to be used at a time, so it’s sure to go a long way. The product also smells fantastic, which may be a deciding factor for some!

Some users have noted that although this lotion does gently moisturise, the anti-blemish effect is not as visible as they would have expected. This may be due to the reduced efficacy of the combined products within their everyday skin regime, but it is something to note.

Pros:

  • Specially-developed for acne prone skin
  • Naturally-derived ingredients including lemongrass, witch hazel, goldenseal and hops, to reduce irritation, and willow bark extract to unclog pores and prevent further breakouts
  • Can be used in conjunction with the comprehensive Burt’s Bees Natural Acne Solutions range
  • A little goes a long way; only a small amount of product is required for each application
  • The lotion smells great

Cons:

  • May not be as effective in preventing breakouts as is claimed
  • Some users have inadvertently used too much product during the first application

Summary: A gentle and soothing lotion which is full of naturally-derived ingredients. Although not all users have noticed an anti-blemish effect, plenty of users have noted that their skin is softer and less prone to breakouts since using this product.
