Review Overview

Naturally Ageless Line Diminishing Day Lotion is an unsuitable choice for daytime unless your foundation contains a sunscreen rated SPF 15 or higher and you apply it evenly to your face.

This moisturizer is an average option for normal to dry skin. The amount of antioxidant-rich pomegranate (supposedly “packed” into this formula) is less than the amount of denatured alcohol, which causes free-radical damage, dryness, and irritation. For the money, this is a disappointing formula and far from what a state-of-the-art anti-aging moisturizer should be.

Claims

Diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for soft, smooth, naturally ageless skin. This luxurious lotion is packed with antioxidant-rich pomegranate to fight skin-damaging free radicals and para cress to help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Mexican wild yam extract in the formula helps increase skin's firmness.

Ingredients

Brand Overview

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. It’s also important to consider the potential benefit (or potential harm) of the ingredients used.

There are some formulas to consider among the brand’s offerings, but some to be wary of—see our individual reviews on Burt’s Bees products for more details.
