ACNE SOLUTION KIT
Lately, life has been tough on my complexion (hello, zits). But the Purifying Gel Cleanser, Daily Moisturizing Lotion and Target Spot treatment in Burt’s Bees Acne Solution Kit are like a triple-action care package that works wonders to soothe and smooth my skin. You’d think that the acne-fighting powers of a natural solution wouldn’t hold a candle to the other harsh chemical treatments out there. But I found the solutions in this kit to eliminate and prevent blemishes better than any chemical product I’ve used.
The thin liquid in the Purifying Gel Cleanser foams on contact with the water, so a little goes a long way. And the follow-up Daily Moisturizer hydrates without going overboard–I can put it on in the morning, and not be shiny for school. The only flaw I could find in this beauty box is with spot treatment’s applicator, which is dispensed in medicinal-like drops. To use it, you either have to drip it onto the zit, or onto your finger and then rub it on the zit, making the spot-treatment process a little messier than I’d like. Even with this design glitch, I’m not even thinking about ditching the product itself: because not matter how I apply it, it seems to always shrink my spots by the next morning.–Emma Herlihy
