Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Shampoo & Wash

Baby Bee Shampoo & Wash

I guess I belong to the increasing percentage of women who use baby items on themselves.  Well, not that I deliberately buy a baby product for myself, but more like I’m pinching the product from my child.  But it’s quite hard to resist a product like Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Shampoo & Wash, because it smells so lovely and makes bathing really pleasant.  In fact, I won’t be surprised that this is one of the baby beauty products which are popular among 40 percent of adults who use baby items on themselves – according to a study from Johnson & Johnson.

Tear-free pH balanced formula that is 96.08% natural
Baby Bee (sounds too cute!) Shampoo & Wash is formulated to be tear-free, pH balanced, and free of chemical synthetics.  It’s really gentle and I got addicted to the smell after using it to bathe my boy daily.   I figured that I should try it for myself and since then, I’ve been hooked.

Baby Bee Tear Free Formula

Affordable price range
I don’t use this product as a shampoo though, as  I think it’s too gentle for my greasy scalp.  I only use this for a quick shower.  Actually, I wish this Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Shampoo & Wash comes in a bigger bottle since we obviously can deplete the content real quickly.  But I’ve only come across this 236ml size.  So it needs to be re-stocked pretty quickly. Fortunately, the price is fairly affordable at S$15.  I’ve tried ordering this via sprees from LuckyVitamin but found it only saves me a couple of dollars so I’ll probably continue buying from Sephora at Ion.

Baby Bee Shampoo & Wash Ingredients

Not all baby products are suitable for adults
Anyway, while baby products are getting popular with many ladies, they are not always the best for us.   An interesting read Baby yourself with infant beauty baby products tells you why these gentler products may not always work well because some of the ingredients are just too mild for adults.  Examples include sunscreen which may not have sufficient UVA protection and baby oils which can only work as all-around moisturizers, but won’t offer any special anti-aging or exfoliating ingredients.

But I guess Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Shampoo & Wash makes an exception.  I really cannot find a reason why this can’t suit an adult as a body wash.  In fact, it’s just excellent for me!

    i have tried burt bee’s shampoo for grown ups b4… very drying but smells lovely!

    I’ve hear good reviews for their facial wash. Do you know how marked up the prices are at Sephora? I rarely ventured in the 2 stores.

    Do try the clay mask I reviewed early.

    I have been using baby wash as a shampoo for ages and it works for me. I don’t use any styling products though, just the hair oil from DHC after each wash ? soft and shiny!

  4. Sukidoll says:

    When they say pH balanced does that mean its neither alkaline or acidic? Not too sure but I thought most baby shampoo’s are very alkalined to be gentle on baby’s eyes – which strips your hair leaving it dry. Maybe this brand is different *confused*

    The makeupalley.com girls seem to like using it for cleaning makeup brushes.

    Oh I love Burt’s Bees Very Volumizing Shampoo. Works very well for me. But some have told me it didn’t work for them. So I guess it all depends on hair types…

  6. sesame says:

    The prices are not very marked up for some of the items, considering the shipping cost if we purchase from States. Personally, I don’t really mind getting from Sephora.

  7. sesame says:

    You use it for your hair? My guess is that it’ll probably work well if your hair is normal. I doubt it’ll work for my greasy scalp.

    i love baby products. i use J&J condition shampoo, J&J baby wash and kiehls+sebamed baby lipbalms &heart; the body shop’s new baby range is my new fave, but it’s kind pricey for everyday use… since i’m like >10x the size of a baby!

    Hello. First of all,sorry for my english. I read your blog that i found very interesting, and I would like to know if I can find the line freshel of kanebo in Singapore, because I have a friend that is there now and she could take me some products. ¿Do you know where can we found freshel kanebo in Singapore? Thank you very much

  10. John says:

    Love B Bee’s baby shampoo, works great!

  11. pf1123 says:

    Vira, freshel product is not available in Sg. I have a brand new freshel toner for sale though. Bought the wrong one 2 mths ago from HK.

    Sesame, sorry for advertising on your blog. hehe…

    But if vira is interested, please give her my email address privately. Thanks very much!

  12. sesame says:

    Yes, that’s true. Not cost effective in the long run…

  13. sesame says:

    Hi Vira: I’m not familiar with Kanebo products and I’ve not seen this Freshel line you mentioned. If it is available, I imagine you should be able to find it at Takashimaya at Ngee Ann City or other major department stores.

  14. sesame says:

    Yes, it’s supposed to mean it’s neutral at pH5.5 – if my understanding of pH balanced is correct.

  15. sesame says:

    Thanks for shedding the info. No problem with the selling as long as it is not commercial. I don’t mind a handful of personal requests.

  16. makeupmag says:

    I love baby products, not least because they usually smell wonderful. ?

  17. sesame says:

    Yes very true! This Baby Bee is really lovely and it makes me want to sniff my boy all the time!

    you can get the 12 fl. oz bottle from dragon d’or at chinatown. the price is abt the same as sephora, i think.
    i bought one bottle to try and am loving. it washes off easily and leaves my skin feeling soft and clean. the rashes are getting lesser and the skin seems to be healing better. the smell reminds me of a sweet that i didn’t like when i was young so it did take some getting used to. =)

  19. sesame says:

    It’s available there too? I’ve not been there for such a long time! Must go back someday soon…

    i love your blog. not like other beauty blogs who concentrate on what they bought from what stores or how many of some things they have, you actually give reviews on anything that comes up, and good reviews too, with so many explanations. and i like this one post especially. and the other one with chemicals in our daily routine topic. it’s so visitor-friendly.

    keep up the good work!
