Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil Review – Great for Dry Sensitive Skin

Burt's Bees Cleansing Oil Review

Hi Kind Friends! Today I have a review and live video demo of one of my new favorite cleansers from the natural and cruelty-free brand Burt’s Bees.

I have always been interested in cleansing oils, especially because I have dry skin, so I was very excited to see Target had the new Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil facial cleanser on sale with their Cartwheel app.

The items sells for $15.99 in most locations, though I purchased it for about $10-12 when it was on sale.

Oil cleansers are meant to break down the dirt and makeup on your face without over-striping it of your skin’s natural oils and this product does deliver for the most part. It definitely cleans my face without being too harsh but it doesn’t take away all traces of makeup, especially not mascara.

Video demo:


I generally add some olive oil onto a cotton round and swipe it over my eyes to break down my mascara, use the Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil to wash my face, and then follow with my DIY Apple Cider Vinegar toner to get rid of any traces of makeup. I will have a video showing this skincare routine in detail in the next coming days.

You use this cleanser by gently rubbing it into dry skin and then rinsing off with water. The consistency of the oil itself is only slightly thicker than water.

I’ve been using this cleanser now for over a month (the video was filmed after only a week of use) and it has not broken out my skin at all. The oils and other ingredients in this product make it great for sensitive skin but I also think it may work for oily skin, I just would not follow with a moisturizer since this product does moisturize as well.

Overall I think this will become one of my favorite skincare products.

You can purchase the Burt’s Bess Cleansing Oil at Target or online at Burt’s Bees’ official website.

Do you have a favorite cleansing oil? What beauty product do you think I’d love?

    Did you try using moisturizer after? Any results with that?

      I usually use a Burt’s Bees moisturizer and serum after washing my face with this product but for oily skin it may not even be necessary since this is so moisturizing.

    I use olive oil to remove eye makeup, as well. I create my own oil blend to cleanse and moisturize, but this looks like a great alternative.
