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 fairly dry skin, and this keeps me from breaking out. I'm 66 and have been using this product for about 10 years. I wouldn't use anything else.

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

        Simply put, the stuff doesn't tear a layer off your face, so you get clean, but keep some of your skin oils. Don't look for the squeak when you are done, it works because it balances you out but doesn't overdry. I didn't have terrible skin, but I'm down from weekly bad zits to one or two a year. Even better, my sister in law is off her Rx stuff now that she's on this. I also like that everything it is more or less edible (I keep extras in the fridge since I buy in bulk and had one go bad once). Worth a shot for most skin types.

        Greasy, ineffective

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

          I usually love anything Burts Bees, so I was surprised that I do not love this face wash. It does have little scrubby things that are good for the environment (i.e., not plastic balls), but my face felt greasy after I used it, and like the product didn't rinse off entirely. Great smell though, and a little goes a long way.

          Too Greasy

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

            It has a really pleasant orange peel + mild soap smell. But it doesn't feel like a cleanser - not gel, not cream, doesn't foam, and it has a thick texture like honey! It left greasy feel after rinse, even on my hands, and I had to use my regular cleanser after this.

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

              If you like Burt's Bees products, you'll probably like this cleanser. It's gentle, non drying, and cleanses well. I use this to clean sunblock and makeup with no problems. It leaves some moisture on the skin so for some users it may feel not thorough. I gave it three stars because like all BB's products, it's overpriced for what it is. The biggest complaint is the stale smell. It's not a fresh citrus scent, but more of an old jar of marmalade sitting around kind of smell. It almost smells like a product that went bad.

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

                I purchased this face wash hesitantly because I'm used to buying cleansers that strip the oils in order to get that squeaky clean feeling. I decided to try something different and I'm glad I did! Although it took a while to get used to the feeling of moisture on my skin, I love the texture it leaves ALL DAY LONG.

                I usually do the warm water, lather clean but with this I went with a warm washcloth and rub in circles around my face and neck. I'm afraid to get it in my eyes so I use make-up remover (Yes to Carrots Makeup removing cleanser) just around the eyes. Feels great and refreshing!

                  I bought this a while back and first use said "Nope" ... then decided to give it another try, afterall 210 plus reviewers with 4 plus stars can't be wrong. They're right. It works. I apply a small amount to my dry face and massage, then a short rinse with luke warm water. I'll use this day and night for the rest of my life. I'm 50 plus and see someone 40 or younger. I'm not exaggerating. It smells terrific and I love the way I look after a cool rinse.

                  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.

                    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!
