Brand Overview

Natural Skin Care For Men Aftershave states that its ingredients will help skin look and feel its natural best. Although several of the natural ingredients in this water- and oil-based moisturizer are benign, just as many are irritating and sensitizing to skin when it is exposed to sunlight. Sadly, Burt’s Bees men’s line does not offer a single sunscreen.

Jar Packaging: No
Tested on animals: No

This all-natural lotion calms, moisturizes and shields dry, rough skin. It contains a mix of sunflower and coconut oils to moisturize, while aloe and vitamin E soothe, for skin that looks and feels its natural best.

Strengths: Inexpensive.

Weaknesses: Many products have potent fragranced formulas; several formulas packaged in jars, which compromises their ingredients.

With humble beginnings in the town of Bangor, Maine, Burt's Bees is a brand focused on natural-themed, earth-friendly skincare. Unfortunately, in many cases, this also translates to less than beneficial formulas as not all of the natural ingredients used are helpful for skin.

Many of the plant extracts and oils used in these products, including orange oil, cinnamon oil, clove oil, lemon oil, eucalyptus oil, pine tar, alcohol, lime oil, and balsam peru, are problematic for skin and present a significant risk of irritation or a sensitizing reaction. Both the intriguing philosophy and inexpensive products are attractive, but it takes more than that to establish reliable products that are good for skin. Its also important to consider the potential benefit (or potential harm) of the ingredients used.

There are some formulas to consider among the brands offerings, but some to be wary ofsee our individual reviews on Burts Bees products for more details.
