I received my first campaign as a Bzzagent member last month. It was for the new line of acne-fighting product from Burt's Bees. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from this face wash. I have been using prescription strength products for years to control my acne, so I wasn't entirely optimistic.

So far, this has been controlling my breakouts. In fact, I didn't even get the hormonal pimples I usually get before my period, which is surprising. I find the formula to be really gentle; I've been using it twice a day. Plus, it actually smells good, like lemons and apricots. It is the exact opposite of the cleanser that I was using prior to this. The generic version of Prascion I was using smelled bad, kinda sulfur-y, hardly foamed up and left dry patches on my face. This doesn't leave my skin dry at all and has a nice foaming action.

It is 99.4% natural. The line it comes from is called "Natural Acne Solutions." The salicylic acid medication in this cleanser and all the other products from the line, is derived in a natural way from Willow Bark Extract. It is non-irritating, won't clog pores and dermatologist tested. Also, it has not been tested on animals.
