Customer Feedback:

"...HATE the new formula. It stinks soo bad I wouldn't even put it on my baby a second time...."

This new one has a horrible chemically plastic sort of scent and does not absorb or moisturize nearly as well as the old formula...."

The new formula is terrible! It absolutely stinks! makes my baby's skin smell bad and it doesn't soak into his skin very well...."

I like the consistancy and creamy feel of this lotion, thats why I gave it two stars instead of just one, but I cannot stand the smell...."

"...feels silky, smells great, and last for several hours. I think it's very rich and the smell is mild, yet pleasant...."

"...The smell of this lotion is so awful, I won't even want to use it...."

"...I faithfully bought the previous formula of their baby lotion and loved it!! I have no idea why they changed to this new formula. It stinks so badly and it is too thick...."

Our Final Assessment:

Burt's Bees Baby Bee Nourishing Lotion is apparently a huge flop. Although it is listed as "Original" on the label, it is a new formulation, and we've rarely seen so much hate expressed towards a natural product! It says it is 100% natural, but the list of ingredients is quite long and does contain some chemically-sounding names. Besides the long list of disappointed customers, this lotion also recieves an alarmingly high rating of 6 in the EWG safety database, which is well above anything we would recommend using - especially on a baby. Price is comparable to other similar all-natural lotions of this size, but based on reviews and other ratings, we cannot recommend it, and we gave it an overall rating of 3 - our lowest rated product to date.
