Rated 2 out of 5 by from New Formula and Not as Good Echoing, StufieQ's review... I bought the cleanser in the new packaging, and the formula has also clearly changed. It's no longer thick and creamy but watery. It also left my face dry unlike the original formula. Please go back to the original formula!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Reformulated? Not as good as it was. I have been buying the sensitive skin cleanser for years, happily. My most recent purchase came in a revamped tube, but it seems the formulation has changed. The texture used to be closer to a paste, but is now a cream. The new formulation is also drying me out like crazy! This used to be the one product that worked for my sensitive dry skin. I’m so disappointed! I thought I would never have to shop around for a cleanser again. Please return to the original formula.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I must be allergic to something in this I wanted to really like this product because I like the natural ingredients. However when I wash my face the minute I rinse I start to see my face turned beet red. I do have rosacea and I thought this product would help. My face is still red towards the end of the day so badly that people ask why is my face so red? It's surprising because this is supposed to be a sensitive skin product that reduces redness.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst purchase ever This is the worst cleanser I have ever used. Sure it’s gentle but I never had so much acne in my life using this. It doesn’t clean pores or face and it doesn’t even get rid of makeup. Do not buy this if you are acne prone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good for oily skin I bought this after reading the reviews and hoped for the best. It was perfect. I used it for at least two years now and have been buying it and using it ever since. I have combination skin but its more oily and super sensitive. It does have a great smell and the texture is not runny. However, it does have a film like the texture at first on your skin but after it drys, it sinks in and leaves your skin feeling smooth and soft. It also does not irritate my skin so it doesn't make it red after washing with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Will Never Buy Another Face Cleanser As someone with super sensitive skin, this is the best thing ever. Every other face wash I have every tried left my face dry, burning, and red. This leaves my face so soft and doesn't burn at all! It doesn't strip your face of its natural oils either. This is the best face wash for sensitive skin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase EVER I have never been able to find face wash that helps my skin. This face wash has been the ONLY kind that has not irritated my skin! Please never change the formula. I recommend this to EVERYONE. Yes it doesn’t remove makeup however since my face is finally clear I don’t even wear it anymore!! The only issues I have is shipping. We are a military family overseas and I always buy 3 at a time so I don’t run out if shipping gets delayed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I swear by this ! I purchased this because I have sensative, and super oily skin this summer. And fell in love with it off the bat! It isn’t like any other cleanser that lathers, so if that’s what your expecting it won’t be for you. It’s thick and creamy, I notice a lot of other reviews state that it leaves a film, or that you have to use it with a wash cloth. Wich is somewhat true for me , but instead of a wash cloth I use a cotton round I wet the cotton round in the shower and rub about a pea size amount of the cleanser on the cotton round, and rub it in, and it doesn’t leave a film, it washes completely off. And leaves my skin feeling clean, and moisturized. My pores have almost disappeared! Please DO NOT change the formula or discontinue the sensitive skincare line . I love every single product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for post-accutane skin I recommend this cleanser for anyone with post accutane dry/sensitive skin. It’s the only facial cleanser i trust! I don’t wear makeup but if you do would recommend using their oil cleanser before this to remove make-up and following up with this cleanser, works wonders! I use my cetaphil moisturizer after washing with this and sometimes almond oil if my face is particularly dry. This is the only cleanser i have found that cleans my skin without irritating it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my skin I was desparate because I couldn't find any product that wouldn't irritate my skin or make it too dry until I found this. Perfect for using it during shower time with a cleansing facial brush. You don't need to use moisturizer after this one. I really like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for Sensitive/Acne Prone Skin I recently switched to this face wash since I'm trying to use only cruelty-free products. I used the Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser for years, which was good, but this Burt's Bees cleanser actually makes my skin softer. I have very sensitive, acne-prone skin and this hasn't caused any breakouts or flare-ups for me. I agree with other reviewers that this definitely won't remove make-up on its own, but I always use a face wipe first so this isn't a deal breaker for me. I'll definitely repurchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It!! I absolutely love this cleanser! I remember a dermatologist telling me that removing makeup and washing your face are two separate steps! Personally, I remove my makeup with a miscellar water and then I use this sensitive creamy wash! It leaves my skin so soft and smooth! I love that it feels like a lotion! So... for those of you that claim it doesn't remove makeup...use a miscellar water and then gently clean your skin. I absolutely recommend this product! I have been using it for a long time and my skin is thanking me! I am 58 years old and I love this cleanser---especially using Retin-A! Thanks for an amazing product! Please don't change the formula or discontinue!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not What I Was Expecting I bought this product quite a ways back, and while it didn't cut it for me as a face wash, it is doing wonders as a tattoo cleanser!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't remove makeup I purchased this product because I have very sensitive skin that can easily get irritated. Although it is a gentle cleanser and it does not irritate my skin at all, it doesn't remove makeup well and it also leaves behind residue on the skin. The description for the product states it is supposed to remove makeup, but unfortunately it fails completely doing that. Maybe it is good to be followed by a toner, but I prefer to skip this step, since I have not found a toner that is gentle enough so that my skin does not feel dry and tight after using it. Pretty disappointed with the product, since I really love many other products from the brand...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Breaking out I have sensitive skin and I’m allergic to fragrance so I thought this would be a perfect product. My face never breaks out and soon as I started using this cleanser and my face started breaking out. I think it’s a great product just not meant for anyone. It was too oily for my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful cleanser This is the best sensitive skin cleanser I have ever used! I use this every evening after I remove my makeup. My skin is sensitive and fair, this product causes no irritation, redness, and doesn’t dry out my skin. It leaves you fealing absolutely refreshed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft, clear skin: achieved Above anything else, this face wash makes my skin so soft and smooth. When I first started using this product I didn’t really feel like my face was being cleaned because I normally prefered cleansers that were tougher on my face, but dried out my skin. With this face wash, it’s light and just enough to make me feel clean. I recommend using a cleansing brush rather than your hands to wash your face though. It is scent-less and leaves room for your pores to breathe, very thin and easy to wash off. I am left with minimal acne by using this product and feel confident without any makeup. I do not have any complaints about this product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Seriously disappointed. I bought this product because my face is super sensitive. And i didn’t buy it with the intention of it breaking me out. I have acne prone skin but this cleanser took it to a whole new level once i started using it with in two weeks i have more that ten new breakouts. After i quit using it they went away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Holy Grail face wash This is the best face wash I have every purchased. I am probably on my 4th or 5th and I will never use anything else. Over the years I have experimented with different cleansers but I always come back to this one. Be aware that this isn't exactly a heavy duty cleanser, so if you wear a lot of makeup, you may have more luck with an oil or foam cleanser. But for me, this product does exactly what I need it to do, cleanses and moisturizes without any irritation or harshness. All of the Burt's Bees cream cleansers are wonderful, but this is the one I will be coming back to repurchase over and over again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved My Skin This is an amazing face wash. Used with the moisturizer and my acne has finally stopped. My skin feels amazing after washing and I never get that dry/tight feeling. I’ll buy this forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for sensitive skin! I have severe eczema and this is one of the only products out there that i’m not allergic to or causes my skin to dry out. It smells nice and feels almost like a lotion when applying and it leaves your face feeling clean (without stripping your skin)! I would 100% recommend this to anyone with dry or sensitive skin!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What I've Been Searching For I can't say enough nice things about the Burt's Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser. I actually bought the entire Sensitive Skin Care line and am extremely pleased. This is exactly what my face has been needing. I have had trouble with adult acne for the past 10 years and I even have a couple prescription medications from my dermatologist but no face wash has made my skin so clear. This has removed all irritation. Take a chance on this product line. You won't regret it if you have insanely sensitive skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! This product works absolutely great for me! My skin is very sensitive and I struggled to find a good cleanser that wouldn't cause my face to breakout. I purchased this product and it makes my skin feel soooo soft!! I haven't had major breakouts sense I stared using this product. I definetly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really is Great for Sensitive Skin I have a rough history with skin care. I used to use Clinique daily and I ended up in the dermatologists office with "stripped skin." At one point, my Dermatologist asked me to wash only with water and to use medicated creams. I'll spare the details, but I'm writing this review because this product has helped me manage PD. It took a long time to balance my skin out. I do occasionally have a "flare," but I am usually the only one who notices it now. This face wash is strong enough to remove my makeup after a long day (sometimes with a wash cloth ), but my skin doesn't feel tight from washing afterward. It does not make my skin itch or burn. It leaves it feeling "normal" which is a good thing for skin care. I also use the moisturizer for daytime, night cream, and eye cream. These products don't have fancy "new" trends to try on the label, but they don't irritate my skin. I sometimes wish they made a natural sunscreen for this line because it is hard to find a sunscreen that doesn't irritate my facial skin. **Please do not change the formula in these products**

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sign me up girl! This is far the best face wash ever, it's also mostly all natural which is GREAT! I love their face towelettes as well and I always have them everywhere, I keep them stacked up because they are so worth it. This product has an unusual lotion type of texture for a face wash so you might have to get used to it but for me I loved it, I have mild acne and oily skin and the face washes that I used were really drying to my face but this face wash is so gentle and leaves my face feeling really hydrated and healthy. I am so happy that I changed most of my facial (cleaning) products to burts bees because they are just all great for healthier looking skin. I also wanted to add that I do not wear a lot of makeup so it is easy for me to just wash my face.
