Brand Overview

Radiance Night Creme contains plant extracts that represent the good and bad among natural ingredients. Essentially, they cancel each other out, but ultimately there’s no need to tolerate the bad natural ingredients (examples would be spearmint, sage, and lemon) when there are products that omit then. This moisturizer for dry skin also contains far more fragrance than beneficial ingredients, and fragrance isn’t skin care. Royal jelly has no special benefits for skin; even if it did, the fact that this night cream is packaged in a jar will hinder its effectiveness (as well as the efficacy of every other natural ingredient in this product).

Jar Packaging: Yes
Tested on animals: No

Infused with Royal Jelly, one of natures most powerful nutrients, this day creme moisturizes, helps enhance your skin's radiance and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Resulting in naturally radiant, younger-looking skin.

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.
