Burts Bees Intense Hydration- Skincare

Hey lovelies!
Skin.. I don’t know where to start. Skincare routines.. I do! I’m your gurl!
Okay, so, long story short (literally *don’t laugh, okay you can, but don’t..) I suffered from extreme eczema since I was born, it flared up here and there.
I had bandages, had flares at the most embarrassing places, & had to hide my skin during summer, because, that’s how bad it was at times.. Fast forward, 18 year old me, my skin had become, lets say, manageable, I didn’t look like a snake (eek) and way less stressful; at this point, it was pivotal, I became obsessed with skin, my health, having a ‘stress free’ life and going the extra 10 miles to make it looks ‘perfect’ when I had start university. I know, it sounds beyond ridiculous, but my obsession with skincare is a joke. But what isn’t is how my skin looks, it’s not exactly ‘perfect’, but I have had so many compliments, (which I don’t really take in), aha, about my skin. People don’t believe I am 24 and people have even (had the cheek) asked if I had some sort of face cleanse surgery, (what even is that?) or must use the most expensive skincare range, or eat the most expensive foods… zzz
So, I would like to share my skincare wisdom, I’m 24so, I am purely basing this all based all my experience, if I canhelp one person, in the most modest ways, then I shall! You don’t nesecarly need expensive products, but the right ingredients in your products are important, and mostly in the expensive products, which is obvious, so a little investiment will go a long way..
 As you know, I won the Burts Bees competition, woo, yay, wooopeee- I hadn’t of expected this gift at all.. it was a little dream for me, as I love skincare products; I was so excited to test it out, which is evident how geeky I am! Haha. 
To be honest, I was impressed with all products, mostly the cleanser, night cream, then day cream! Lets say the packaging is just beautiful, so attractive, the colours remind me of summer and the smells of these products are insane, very fresh, fruity and it’s not over powerful at all!

1. Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser:

My words: It’s the cleanser you’ll want for life, it’s one of those cleansers you’ll instantly talk about when someone asks for a cleaner recommendation..

My Review:  Obviously, first the smell is beyond gorgeous, I was obsessed with it. The texture isn’t so bad, easy to manage. What I will say is that you only need a pea size, I made the mistake of having quite a bit on my hand, it was far too much. So a small blob, warm water and flourish it through your skin for about a good 3 mins, in circular motions for best results! Don’t press to hard on the skin, then wash it off with a wet flannel and a quick rinse with cold water to lock in the moisture! I have noticed a difference actually, it makes my skin feel smooth, I feel clean too and it gives an extra health glow to the skin, it must be all those good ingredients! Perfect for winter glow skin when we all suffer in small ways with the dark, gloomy cold weather! I would say keep a small towel with you and just pat afterwards! It’s a dream. I use this daily!

5/5!

 2. Intense Hydration Day Lotion;

Gently smooth moisturiser over face and neck in the morning after cleansing, after using the Burts Bees Cleansers. It leaves the skin feeling extra soft and very hydrated. I left with a small amount on my skin and was out all the day, my skin didn’t feel crusty and dry at all. I actually didn’t expect it to hydrate for that long in such a cold weather while I was rushing all around London, but it had lived up to my expectations. It’s not greasy and my skin doesn’t feel trapped, like it’s unable to breathe at all, nor do I feel like I need to add more lotion on during the day!

4/5 – Just wish it had some brightening element to it! But overall, fab! It’s not exactly light,  you would need only a small dose, maybe two pea sizes! It seriously will keep you hydrated all day and smells so fresh! I would say use it twice a day, one in the morning and once again (not cleansed) during the mid afternoon! 

3. Night Cream.

My Review;

To be honest, I have not seen much of a difference, yet, well my skin is quite good right now, so it’s quite hard to see the “huge” improvements. Although I do use it, it leaves my skin feeling so smooth in the morning and really edges itself into your pores, silky skin in the morning which was impressive!
