Burt's Bees Chemical Free Sunscreen SPF 30 (3.5 oz) Review
Burt's Bees Chemical Free Sunscreen SPF 30 might be an eco-friendly product, but it's not one that wins over many consumers. The broad-spectrum protection fails to prevent sunburns, according to users, and may cause skin to peel. They also say it's difficult to get out of the tube and rub in, leaves behind a flaky white film that's hard to wash off, and stains clothing.
Burt's Bees Chemical Free Sunscreen SPF 30 is aimed at consumers interested in "going green" with products from companies that demonstrate a commitment to environmentally-sound practices and products. Some Burt's Bees Chemical Free Sunscreen reviews on Viewpoints comment appreciatively on its eco-friendly qualities, noting, for example, that it contains no chemicals (that is, no oxybenzone), and add that it rubs on quickly and prevents burns even after a full day in the sun. Other Burt's Bees Chemical Free Sunscreen reviews on the same site, and most on Amazon, however, are quite critical. Users posting Burt's Bees Chemical Free Sunscreen reviews complain about sunburn, an unpleasant odor, a sticky consistency, streaking, and difficulty rubbing in the product. Burt's Bees Chemical Free Sunscreen reviews on the company's own site also report that this cheap sunscreen leaves a white, chalky film and stains clothing yellow.
The UVA/UVB protection in Burt's Bees Chemical Free Sunscreen comes from a very thin physical barrier created by titanium dioxide, a mineral ingredient that reflects light. Other ingredients include glycerin, witch hazel, rosemary extract, and beta carotene.
Burt's Bees Chemical Free Sunscreen comes in SPF 15 and 30, and is available in tubes of 3.5 and 3 ounces. Although nominally in the Cheapism price range, this product sits at the high end on a per-ounce basis. Given the consumer feedback and relative expense, you might want to pass this one by.
