I've mentioned both of these little family of products before. The Burt's Bees Intense Hydration products were sent for review purposes, but this isn't a review. For that, you may go here.
I've been using these products a few months, and I've recently come to terms with the war zone that my skin has become. I love the Mary Kay Clearproof system, don't get me wrong, it's just that the products can be so darn drying. Since doing my review, I purchased the full sized products from my mother-in-law. The more I use it, unfortunately, the dryer my skin becomes, so if I notice an increase in dryness, I switch to using the system once a day rather than two.
It's always scary to have a skin problem that you've never had before pop up. I really don't know much about dry skin. BUT it is working. It's doing the job, and that's what I wanted to focus on.
To combat the dryness in certain areas, I pulled out my Burt's Bees Intense Hydration duo and used that to combat it. They work together beautifully, and within a few days I noticed that my skin wasn't as dry as it had been. It just looks and feels healthier after using it.
Unfortunately this is a risk that someone takes when they use an acne regime, but I'm glad I was able to use them together.
If I need it, I first start with the Burt's Bees Cleanser, then follow up with the Mary Kay Clearproof system. Then, if I feel like i need more moisture I'll put the Burt's Bees lotion on as a final step. I don't always use the Burt's Bees. It's kind of on an as needed basis.
