Burt's Bees Pomegranate Night Creme
Burt’s Bees Pomegranate Night Creme

Quick Review: Burt’s Bees Pomegranate Night Creme

Burt’s Bees Naturally Ageless Night Creme ($24.99 for 2 oz.) is a rich, moisturizing cream that doesn’t actually feel rich or heavy or much like a cream at all. It felt more like a gel cream, because of the lighter texture and the cooling sensation (not tingly, just… cool). There is a noticeable but not overwhelming scent of sweet-tart berry and pomegranate that I don’t find heavy or cloying, but it is there.

Ingredients: Water, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Alcohol Denatured, White Birch Bark Extract, Acmellia Oleracea Extract, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Extract, Sucrose Stearate, Xanthan Gum, Sucrose Distearate, Fragrance (Parfum), Glucose, Sodium Chloride, Lactoperoxidase, Glucose Oxidase

I liked that it absorbed within three to five minutes and didn’t leave behind any greasy residue or feeling on the skin, which some heavier night creams can do. It kept my skin soft, smooth, and moisturized during the six weeks I used it (at this point, I had finished the jar). I think this is a great moisturizer for normal to very dry skin types, and it’s budget-friendly, too! Now, if only we could ditch the jar packaging…

Welcome to Swatch-all-idays!

Quick reviews may be partially incomplete, such as a blush may only be swatched on the arm rather than shown on the face. It is our hope that what we are able to provide is still helpful!

    I wish this product didn’t have fragrance in it. Thank goodness Burt’s Bees offers skincare for sensitive skin types too. I need a night cream badly, especially for under eye circles; but I’m not sure of what to try.

    both of my parents love this stuff!

  3. What made it not an A for you?

    • It didn’t really seem to firm or minimize any fine lines for me. Since I don’t have many to begin with, it’s always hard to measure, but since I can’t affirmatively say the anti-aging properties work well, it’s not an A.

      It is very difficult for a product to get an A based on the way the score is broken out.

    This is just what I needed!I’ve been wanting to try Burt’s Bees skincare, but don’t know what to buy first. Do you have any plans to review anymore Burt’s Bees products? I am really interested in trying their Garden tomato soap and toner…

    • I don’t have anything else lined up for Burt’s Bees that I can think of!

      Rosalinda, just be weary that if you do have a slight resistance to alcohol in your toners then be very cautious of the Burt’s Bees Garden Tomato Toner!! I ran out of my “Origins – United States Toner” (which is fantastic by the way, but I can’t get it in Australia anymore!!)so I was looking for a new one, I read some good reviews on the BB GTT and so I bought it and tried it two days in a row, a thursday and friday, by the time I woke up on saturday my eyes were double the size and I broke out in a pretty bad allergic reaction!! This freaked me out because my skin is as tough as nails and I NEVER have allergic reactions to skincare or make-up!!

      Just be cautious, maybe see if they sell a smaller size first?!

    How do you think does would work on combination skin? And at what age would you say a person should start using a separate night cream? Right now, I just use my daily moisturizer at night too. I’m 18, by the way.

    • I think it would work fine on combination skin! :) Night cream is really no different from whatever moisturizer you’re using — just thicker, so I think either is fine.

  6. thanks for sharing! I’m always curious about burt’s bees products!

  7. I love Burt’s Bees; this sounds so good! I know a jar isn’t very handy, but I kinda love the look.

    WILL THIS CLOG PORES?? i wanna try out night creams and i have terrible dry skin BUT i have extra oily T-zone…. why is my skin like this…

    • It doesn’t clog mine, but it’s hard to say for sure if it will/won’t for you!

    • Lena

      my skin is oily and i use this, and no pore-clogging and i’ve gone through 3/4 of the jar.
      i have very fine lines, but i did not notice it diminishing (yet), but i will continue to re-buy because my skin is plump, healthy and glowing, i think due to this cream. i’m gonna try the eye cream from this line as well.

  9. mahalo for the review!!! Will you continue to use this product or is it a no-go?
