Initially it took me some time to adjust to the texture and fragrance of this lotion but I bought it because of its mica shimmer particles for a nice subtle summer glow, and now I am in love with it.
While I do use other shimmer lotions also, I keep this one at work to apply whenever I don't have time to shimmer up before I leave home in the morning.
I work under bright flood lights and the sparkle of this lotion is very subtle and appropriate for daytime working in a professional office, as well as evenings out on the town and also the beach.
The fragrance is light and refreshing, not overpoweringly sweet.
The packaging is clumsy. While I do like the easy-squeeze tube with the flip-bottom cap in general, for this liquidy lotion it can be quite messy, as the lotion easily pours out on its own if not careful.
Despite being very liquid, it takes a little effort to rub the lotion into my skin and takes a few minutes for the somewhat sticky sensation to dissipate after it sinks in. Excellent light-feeling moisturization qualities from natural ingredients.
All in all it's a great summer (or even year-round) product, especially good for those with sensitive skin as Burt's Bees is a very health conscious eco-friendly product line. Kudos.

I love burt's bees facial moisturizers and other products, but this lotion needs improvement. I bought it thinking it might help improve my skin's tone just like their other wonderful radiance products, but nope. It leaves my hands feeling sticky and weird after I apply it and it's not moisturizing at all. Save your money, it's not good. I'd recommend Alba's lotions.

      Comments about Burt's Bees Radiance Body Lotion with Royal Jelly, 6 fl oz:

      Luckily I found someone who is not allergic to "fragrance" and they are able to enjoy this product. I started to get a headache the minute I put it on. So disappointing from Burt's Bees. I thought they were "all-natural"...

      Comments about Burt's Bees Radiance Body Lotion with Royal Jelly, 6 fl oz:

      I usually apply after I shower. It makes you all shimmery, so it's great for summer, or even if you feel down and dull in winter. Lovely smell. A little runny, but that just means you can't put a ton in your hand at once. Not greasy. Stays shimmery until next shower, through sweat even. I only wish it didn't contain soy. I still use it on occasion though. Can't find anything quite like it. Definitely worth it for all the glow it gives your body.

        Burts Bees Can Stick It!!!

        • Moisturizes Well
        • Softens Skin

        Cons

        • Destroyed a Great Blouse
        • Too Greasy or Heavy

        Best Uses

          Comments about Burt's Bees Radiance Body Lotion with Royal Jelly, 6 fl oz:

          I bought this specifically for a beach trip. Loved how it went on and I did look radiant. Everyone at the beach house told me I smelled great, too. BUT, I ruined a very prized blouse when I wore it one evening to dinner. The lotion apparently did not absorb totally into the skin (and I use a minimal amount) and it ruined my beautiful blouse. After reaching out to Burts Bees, I was really disappointed, because not only were they unempathetic, but they just brushed me off. And to think I used to be their Number One Fan. Don't ruin your clothes, ladies.

          Comments about Burt's Bees Radiance Body Lotion with Royal Jelly, 6 fl oz:

          I love the subtle shimmer effect in this lotion & have been using it for 5 yrs, BUT the scent changed a couple of yrs ago when I finally finished my 1st bottle & bought a new bottle, only to find it doesn't have the same fresh fragrance it originally had. It now smells more green, grassy, herbal, but in a bad way. It makes me think of compost or rotting grass. On the bright side, it's not overpowering & it does dissipate a little, but on the negative side it makes the lotion unpleasant to use & interferes with my perfume. Now when I wear this I feel like I look good but smell bad. I wonder what happened.

          Everything else about the lotion hasn't changed - it's still watery, so be careful against messy spills. It spreads easily (but you have to rub it in to eliminate white residue), absorbs well & leaves skin slightly dewy, which makes it soft & silky.

          Great on a summer tan, a bottle would last me 2-3 yrs, it's a generous size for a chemical-free product at a nice price. My favorite summertime lotion...used to be perfect...now it's almost perfect. I tried other shimmer lotions as an alternative, but none of them had this same kind of glowy natural shimmer. I still continue to use Radiance, but unfortunately less often now.

                I bought this lotion to wear this summer on my arms and legs. I have dry skin and after using this product, I would mainly use it for the faint radiance. It does moisturize but for me, it is too light of a moisturizer. The smell is a bit strong and sweet when you first put it on even thought it's a pleasant smell, but it dissipates very quickly. The fragrance did not last but the light shimmery effect lasted all day. This is a lovely lotion if you are looking to add a little radiance to your skin.

                      I still feel dry after using this lotion. The smell isn't all that bad. The glitter effect does not do anything for me, i suppose that is the "radiance" of the lotion. If it is winter, this would be the last resort of my lotions, it does not feel moisturizing and the consistency is very watery.
