This lotion seemed to soothe my irritated skin and helped reduce my blemishes. I was glad to find a readily-available alternative to the CeraVe, which contained parabens. However, when I ran this Burt's Bees lotion through the EWG Skin Deep database, I was surprised to see it came out at a moderate 6, just slighlty above the CeraVe renewing lotion, which came in at a 5. However, the Burt's Bees rating is weighed down by the use of fragrance, and, given the NPA certification, I suspect the hazard rating is a little high. The Burt's lotion is definitely more expensive, coming in around $18 for 2 oz as opposed to $16 for 8 oz, but the Burt's lotion is more concentrated, so it may last longer. Burt's doesn't certify any product as vegan, so I would love to see a vegan version of this lotion in the future. In the meantime, this does seem like a slightly gentler version of conventional drugstore salicylic acid lotions.
Also available on Amazon.com.
Note: For a vegan alternative, consider Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Oil Control Lotion.
