A product that BzzAgent sent to me recently was a full sized sample of the cleanser and moisturizer from Burt's Bees' new sensitive skincare line.  I am going to be straight with you.  I will not be buying this in the future based on cost.  I think I might melt into a puddle if I paid over $10 for one bottle of skincare.  I'll stick with the stuff that I get for free (or at least under $5) with couponing.  However, this stuff was nice so if you care about it being 99% natural or you need hypo-allergenic, allergy-tested, non-comedogenic, etc stuff, this would probably be a good deal for you.  They have no parabens, phthalates, or petrochemicals according to the tube.  They also don't test on animals and encourage recycling.  Good right?  

Ok so onto the products.  The cleanser is pretty cool.  It is a cream cleanser (soap-free) so it does not suds or foam at all. I like when cleansers foam so I wasn't sure how I would feel about this.  Surprisingly I liked it.  It left my skin feeling very clean and fresh.  The scent was not entirely pleasant for me (it says fragrance free but everything has a scent) but it was not strong at all so I got over it.  It left my cheeks so soft that I keep wanting to pet them... strange?  Check.  It's probably the cotton extract in it but then again I know nothing about skincare ingredients.

The moisturizer.  The bottle is cute.  Seriously, check out the photo.  It is compact (the cheapy in me points out that this means less product at 1.8oz) which would make it good for traveling.  This is a lot more "fragrance-free" than the cleanser with almost no detectable scent.  I love the fact that it sinks into the skin quickly without leaving any residue.  I don't have to worry about washing my hands after applying.  Neither of the products caused any sort of reaction, though I don't have sensitive skin so most products don't.  My overall opinion... thumbs up.
