Great natural sunscreen
I love this sunscreen. It has an amazing texture that just glides over your skin with no tugging necessary. This texture doesn’t leave you with a super greasy residue, like many other natural sunscreens. The scent is a little strange, like cotton, and you get used to it after a little while. It’s also not an overpowering scent. The bottle only lasted about two months, and it is a little pricey, but I think it’s definitely worth the money. It will probably also last a lot longer during the winter months when less skin is exposed. It keeps my really pale skin protected during the hot Oklahoma summers, is all natural, and isn’t tested on animals. I’m definitely going to keep this in my rotation.

I do not have good luck with Burt’s Bees products. I always want to like them, but they I always find something that I like better. With that being said, I had really high hopes for this toner. I’ve read tons of good reviews and it’s a natural product, which is really important to me. The first thing I noticed, aside from the price, was the smell. It smells amazing! I found myself just opening the bottle so I could smell it. After using, my face felt comfortable and refreshed. My face didn’t feel tight at all, break out, or irritated. The bottle lasted about 5 months, so you definitely get a lot for your money. However, I don’t really feel like it actually did anything for my skin. Did I like this product? Yes. Did I love it? No. Would I purchase it again? Possibly.

I really liked these wipes. The scent is great, not too overpowering or chemically. They almost have a citrusy scent that is really refreshing. Plus, these didn't make my face break out or feel irritated at all and did a really good job of taking all my makeup off. They're also a pretty decent price. Once I got towards the end of the pack, the wipes did seem a little dry. That is my only complaint about the product and pretty trivial to me because you can just run them under the faucet and then they're just fine.

Decent, but by no means wonderful
I was a little skeptical about this product when I first got it. The bottle is pretty small and I thought it would only last about a month or so. It actually lasted a little over three because you only need about 1-2 pumps, give or take. I usually used about 1 ½. It has green tea (hence the name) and it also has aloe vera in it among other things. This moisturizer did leave my face feeling a little bit sticky, but that didn’t bother me because I usually stay up for a little bit longer after taking care of my face, so be forewarned. It is nice and light, which some people may or may not like for a nighttime moisturizer in the winter. It also didn’t make my face break out or irritate it at all. This is some thing I would consider using again, but only if I couldn’t find anything else that I liked more.

I wasn’t too crazy about this product when I first started using it. I’m not a huge fan of liquid makeup removers (I prefer wipes) and I found this product to be a little bit too oily for my taste. I continued to use it just in case I started to like it more. It turned out to really not be bad at all. The ingredients are great for your skin and really moisturizing. This product also did a pretty good job of taking my makeup off, but was just okay at taking eye makeup off. The 2 oz. bottle lasted about 3 months with alternating heavy use (every day) to hardly any at all (a couple times a week). I would probably buy this again, but I would use it as a moisturizer instead of a makeup remover.

I really liked this toner. It smells great and feels amazing on my skin. It didn’t make me break out or irritate my skin at all either, which is a definite plus. It lasts a lot longer than the two months the website says it does. Unfortunately I didn’t notice a reduction in pore size or fine lines, but it’s still a really great toner. I would definitely buy it again.

I got a sample of this with the daily care kit. The first thing I noticed was that it’s a little on the runny side and almost more like a lotion than a cream. The smell was nice and it didn’t irritate my skin, but I did notice an increase in breakouts while I used this so I probably won’t be buying it again.

There are certain aspects of this toner that I really liked and some I didn’t. The price is great and the toner is really gentle. It helped control the oil on my forehead and cleared up a fair amount of my acne. The scent isn’t offensive and the product felt really cool on my skin. Sometimes though it seemed to make my face really red, blotchy, and itchy, but it didn’t happen all the time just occasionally. This reaction did go away after a few minutes. I’m definitely going to keep this toner in mind if I don’t find another that I like better.

I wanted to like it...
but it always felt like there was a residue on my skin after I used it. This product is really affordable and it has natural ingredients, which is a plus. It also leaves my skin feeling pretty soft after use too. I'm not a huge fan of the granules mainly because I feel like they're just a little bit too rough on my skin. This isn't the worst scrub ever, but it's not the best either.

I really wanted to like this sunscreen. Don't get me wrong, the protection is great and so is the price. Plus, it has no parabens or fragrances and is cruelty free and vegan. I just couldn't get over the texture. This sunscreen is really thick and tends to leave a white cast on your face no matter how much you rub it in. It does disappear after about ten minutes, but my face always looked really oily. I was really disappointed because I had really high hopes for this sunscreen.
