Burt’s Bees Renewal Intensive Firming Serum Review


Promises to be 98.9% natural (though I doubt it reading the looong list of ingredients)


Does not get absorbed immediately.


This is my first encounter with this American brand. I was not surprised finding out that it is roughly 50% cheaper in the US then in Europe (as all things American usually are, hmm thats you Kiehl’s that I am talking about), and spending a month in the US last winter I really indulged. I have only owned two serums before, and had great results, really noticing my skin going through a transformation, becoming smoother and looking more airbrushed. This is my first low budget serum and therefore my expectations were pretty low, and still I managed to get disappointed.

The serum is very sticky, gets absorbed slowly and does not mix well with the skin cream you apply on top. I have tried using different facial creams as top layers, and felt greasy each time. My skin gets irritated from this piling of products, something I have not experienced with my previous serums. My skin looks ok, but no wa wa voooom results, such as those I experienced previously. Actually I feel like my wrinkles have become more visible when using this serum (which is probably not true but still), in other words, this serum was just not worth my money.
