Customer Feedback:

"...excellent. Moisturizes and does not leave greasy residue...."

ok. It does feel nice and silky but it doesn't moisturize that long...."

"...really makes my skin feel smooth. I love the smell and I don't have that greasy feeling afterwards like some products do...."

--Actual user comments from User Reviews section

"...This new version smells horrible (like plastic or chemicals) and is very thick. It is like you are putting on paste. I am very disappointed....."

" just fine, does all it's supposed to do, and most important - not sticky, something that I had been looking for a very long time...The only throwback is the scent, it smells weird, tin-like, and may be unpleasant to whoever may be next to you...."

"...I think this new formula is an improvement. The smell is still similar, but it's not that old sickly sweet smell that was supposed to be "honey"...and it's not as strong as it used to be.... I use it at bedtime and wake up to really soft skin...."

--Actual user comments from User Reviews section

 "...the new version doesn't smell good and it surely doesn't make my skin look or feel as good...."

I didnt like the smell much at first but i like it now....And it's soo moisturizing! Clears up my chapped hands overnight and it's not greasy after it soaks in....."

this lotion feels like all the cheap drugstore stuff that has never worked for me. It smells good, but the texture is thick without being very moisture-rich or blendable...."

Our Final Assessment:

Burt's Bees Naturally Nourishing Milk & Honey Body Lotion gets very poor reviews from users, even on the manufacturer's site. Most people complained about the smell, but others found it wasn't very moisturizing, or was too thick. It is a 99% natural product, but gets a 5 from the EWG safety database, which is higher than we recommend (although this rating is largely based on the undisclosed "fragrance" ingredients, which may or may not be harmful). The price is average for a natural product in a container of this size, and the larger sized bottle is a better value for the price. Based on these factors and the lackluster customer reviews, we give this item a 5 rating overall.
