After reading some of the reviews on here, I was waiting for this greasy/slimy residue after using. Fortunately, I don't know what those people were talking about. The directions say that you can either apply the product to a wet or dry face. I'm going to assume that most of those people applied it to a wet face. Because of the oil content, I figured it would be better to apply it directly to a dry face as it seems as it would be able to penetrate into your pores better seeing how water and oil don't normally mix. Also, I have notice that it comes off better using a warm wet rag vs rinsing your face.

There were also some complaints that it didn't feel as if their face was clean afterwards. I've experience the complete opposite of that. And I know for a fact that it's doing it's job because when I follow up with my toner, there's no trace of dirt, expect for the makeup along my hairline that I always miss when cleansing.

Overall, I have no complaints.

I have used other natural oil cleansers (Boscia is my favorite) so I know that they can be very effective, but this is not one of them. This "cleanser" felt like I was just rubbing vegetable oil all over my face, albeit with a much better scent. I couldn't rinse it off at all and ended up having to use another face wash to remove it! I might have been ok with the oily feeling it left me if it had taken off ANY of my make up, but every trace remained. I guess if you have perfectly clear, but dry, skin and you don't need really need to clean your face at all, then this is the cleanser for you.

Comments about Burt's Bees Orange Essence Facial Cleanser, 4.3 oz:

I have mixed feelings about this product. I can understand why people don't think it cleans very well. I just doesn't feel like soap as I'm used to 9more like petroluem jelly). My face does feel clean afterwards so I have to assume it's working. I am happy it is natural and that it leaves my skin feeling clean but not dried out. And it does smell great. It is, however, inconvenient to use since your face has to be dry in order for it to work effectively. If your face is wet it falls right off. I would prefer to have a product I can use in the shower instead of before or after.

    Comments about Burt's Bees Orange Essence Facial Cleanser, 4.3 oz:

    The first time I used this product I was given a Burt's Bees Gift Pack which included a small tube of this stuff. I fell in love with it immediately! After using it my skin feels so smooth and it's orange aroma is not over powering and smells wonderful. It has sort of a "wake me up" effect related to the smell, really! After I am done using it I can still smell it on my skin for a bit afterwards.I live in a rural area so it is hard to find around here, usually I have had to buy it in the city - I was really glad to find it on this site. As I am making today's purchase it is on sale (I can NEVER find it on sale below the constant [$] I have always paid) - so I am ordering some even though I'm not quite ready for a new tube.Also I am very budget conscious and generally, before discovering this product, would only spend a few dollars on a facial cleanser - this product is well worth paying the 3 or so dollars more than I would have "pre-Burt's Bees". TRY IT!

        Comments about Burt's Bees Orange Essence Facial Cleanser, 4.3 oz:

        Oh my, this is one my favorite cleansers! It smells wonderful ~ it's the best citrus scent I have ever smelled. I use this with a wash cloth and it doesn't lather, so you need to use a bit more product than normal. I've been going through a tube a month. But, I don't care because I look forward to using this refreshing product every morning. I have one tube at the master sink and another in my shower. Also, I use the Burt's Bees citrus scrub, so it's a winning combination. I will buy this again...

          Comments about Burt's Bees Orange Essence Facial Cleanser, 4.3 oz:

          I am a big Burt's Bees fan, but do not like this product. It leave a greasy residue on the skin after cleansing. After not using the product all the way up, it looked like it was getting moldy around the container opening (granted, I used it sparingly, since I didn't really like it). The scent was nice, and I like the fact that it's made of natural ingredients, but this product is not for me.

            I use this as a daily cleanser. A little goes a long way and it rinses off quite easily. Strong sweet orange smell and sweet flavor, if you happen to have it on your lips.

              Comments about Burt's Bees Orange Essence Facial Cleanser, 4.3 oz:

              I think what some people are conditioned to think is that your face has to feel like it is about to crack after washing it. This product cleanses superbly and it leaves a tingly soft 'after wash'. It isn't for everyone... meaning: if you like your face to feel tight and dry after washing, go to [...] and pick up regular soap. With this product, your face feels clean, energized and moisturized. It will feel VERY soft throughout the day. It improves the texture. It is natural with NO Sulfates... this is super important to me. I use it every day except on the days that I do a microdermabrasion/scrub. On those days, I use Burt's Bees Radiance Daily Cleanser with Royal Jelly which gives me a deeper clean with no super moisture afterward. I am 40 and work really hard on my skin. But, nasty chemicals are not in my regimin. I am often mistaken for being in my 20s. I highly recommend this to those that are open to a natural clean.

                Works great - keeps skin from being irritated and breaking out. Needs a good exfoliant and moisturizer as compliments. Works for me if i put it on dry skin and remove with warm washcloth.

                  Comments about Burt's Bees Orange Essence Facial Cleanser, 4.3 oz:

                  Truly this product smelled great. I had high hopes that I had found my last cleanser for my sensitive dehydrated skin. However, just like in the Godfather movies when they show an orange before another person gets the axe, it suffocated my skin. I used it direct from the tube over my sink as well as diluted with water in the shower. Both times it IMMEDIATELY caused me to feel as though the skin on my face couldn't breathe. Over the sink, it also took awhile to rinse off. I felt like there was a residue that I wanted to (but couldn't) get rid of.
                  Now I mix it with a sandy exfoliator for a nice smelling hand treatment for the dreary Wisconsin winter.
