Review Overview

Naturally Ageless Skin Firming Night Creme wastes its few antioxidants because of the poor choice of jar packaging which won’t keep them stable. Otherwise, it’s a basic, emollient moisturizer for normal to dry skin not prone to blemishes. The fact that it includes more denatured alcohol than it does state-of-the-art ingredients is disappointing at any price, and nothing about this moisturizer is skin-firming. This does contain fragrance.

Claims

Help fight the signs of aging as you sleep with this rich formula that rehydrates skin for firmer, naturally ageless skin. It contains antioxidant-rich pomegranate to fight skin-damaging free radicals, as well as white birch bark to restore firmness and para cress to help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Ingredients

Water, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Sucrose Distearate, Alcohol, Denat., Cetyl Alcohol, Sucrose Stearate, Betula Alba (White Birch) Bark Extract, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Extract, Acmella Oleracea (Para Cress) Extract, Lecithin, Carrageenan, Fragrance, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Borate, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol

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.
