Customer Feedback:

"...natural, smells nice and has that special shimmer effect...."

Although I love many Burt's Bees products and have no problem, I had a terrible allergic reaction to this one...."

"...covers your body in a slight shimmer - not ridiculous sparkles. It lives up to it's name in creating the perfect radiance. My only qualm is that it's a thin lotion and I prefer those that are thicker...."

"...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 though it's a pleasant smell, but it dissipates very quickly...."

"...does not feel moisturizing and the consistency is very watery...."

"...This lotion smells good, goes on well when skin is dry (not so when skin is very damp), and adds a subtle shimmer...."

 "...absorbs quickly and instantly gives your skin a radiant (as the title suggests) look and feel...."

I really love the shimmer. It's not greasy, absorbs quickly & moisturizes very well...."

looked liked glitter on my skin, which was not the effect I was expecting. It also wasn't quite as hydrating as the milk and honey lotion I normally use...."

Our Final Assessment:

Burt's Bees Radiance Body Lotion with Royal Jelly gets better reviews than many of Burt's Bees other lotions - an average of 70% that we found were happy with it. We found varying reports of the naturalness, but the most recent formulation looks like it's 98.2% natural. It gets a rather poor rating of 5 in the EWG safety database, although it looks like most of this is based on the undisclosed "fragrance" ingredients. The price is average for a natural product in a container of this size. Overall, based on the safety and other ratings, we give it a 6.5, but this may change if the fragrance ingredients are disclosed.
