Customer Feedback:

"...this stuff is fantastic. It soothes really well. Feels so good going on. Until it soaks in, it's a little bit greasy, but it doesn't take long to soak in and my skin stays soft even after I wash my hands...."

very thick, with a super light, warm scent--of butter milk and natural coconut (think the inside rind of a coconut, not a coconut candle, etc). You can absolutely feel the moisture of this lotion on your skin...."

"...Despite the representation that it is "sensitive," it has a nondescript awful perfume-y smell. Wouldn't recommend...."

"...goes on really smoothly, and you don't need much. Also, I have super dry legs and it really makes them feel and look great...."

"...The moisture part was great but can't get past the awful strong powdery like smell...."

"...This lotion does absorb well and lasts a long time, but for me that was a big problem because the smell is absolutely awful!..."

Our Final Assessment:

Burt's Bees Soothingly Sensitive Body Lotion with Aloe & Buttermilk gets mixed reviews from customers. About 60% were positive, from what we found, with many customers not liking the scent of the newer formula - which seems to be a common theme with Burt's Bees new lotions. It is a 99% natural product, but it gets a 6 from the EWG safety database, which is definitely higher than we recommend. The price is average for a natural product in a container of this size, and slightly lower than some of of Burt's Bees' other lotions. We give this product an overall rating of 6 - you can find better.
