Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing finish and quality
This foundation provides gorgeous, flawless yet natural full coverage. It's non-greasy, yet gives your skin a healthy glow. The foundation does not cause white flashback in flash photography, and the shades it comes in are all realistic skin shades, which are difficult to find at the drugstore. The result is long-lasting, and will not crack or fade off.
For those who complain about the "weird smell," that's the scent of honey. The foundation does not contain perfume, so the scent you get is actually from the natural ingredients, and it fades almost instantly.
Most Helpful Critical Review Trying to love it, but...
I got this product thinking how amazing was to get a natural makeup. I don't use liquid make up, don't like them, I just use blush, lip gloss and eye shadow, got this makeup to wear on formal occasions.
-The coverage is good
-Color skin match is okey
-Love that is natural and not animal tested
-Hard to apply (I have dry skin, so I have to put my moisturize lotion and the makeup right after to get some moisture)
-Never saw the "glow", it actually looks mate (which is one of the reasons why I don't like makeup, don't like the look of a dry mate skin)
-Not a fan of the smell, but can endure it because is natural
- Gives me tiny acne and red spots every time I wear it :( (which is not often) . This is what is actually making me hate the product.

I have dry skin and this foundation doesn't make me feel too oily or drier.
Honestly, it rubs off and smells like wet dog

I was reading these ingredients after buying this and is as shocked to find FRAGRANCE listed towards the end! I have previously enjoyed this brand because it's skincare products are perfect for my sensitive/acne prone skin. Then I tried this foundation and the fact that fragrance is included is a little unsettling to be honest. Fragrance is one thing that triggers my acne and so I'm pretty disappointed in this product.

I really wanted to love this product, I tried it twice and I cannot make it work. It separates as soon as you put it on the skin and it does not blend into the skin. It just sits on top of my skin and separates. It doesn't stay on, as soon as you touch it it transfers to your hand. Creates a patchy matte finish as well, pretty much impossible to make it look somewhat okay :(
Pretty good for a natural foundation
Wa from Wa
I bought this because it has mostly natural ingredients which is attractive to me. I'm trying my best to pick some healthier options with less chemicals. This does a good job. I bet it will be better when I pick up a primer, but I'm out currently so I used my the ordinary Niacinamide + zinc, followed by Alba spf moisturizer, sprayed my ELF setting spray on my face, then applied my foundation with a brush, applied my shape tape concealer under my eyes and around my mouth, applied my airspun setting powder, then bronzer blush eye shadow yada and sprayed again with elf setting spray then added more setting powder all over which I always do for more staying power. Everything turned out good accept the coverage wasn't good on the acne I currently have around my mouth. It lasted pretty well through a few hours at work and an hour workout where I got minimally sweaty. But it was a little shiny and sticky feeling after. We'll see if it breaks me out. If it helps me acne go away, it's a keeper. If it makes anything worse, it's out. I'm trying to find a healthy replacement for my addiction to Estée Lauder double wear foundation, which is my holy grail of foundation but I don't love the chemicals in it. If you're looking for clean makeup, this is good! You just have to apply it right.
Had it, loved it... but got chalky
Ry from Bloom
When I first got this foundation I LOVED it! But after 4 months into the product with half the bottle left, I absolutely hate it. It's so chalky and dries as soon as you put it on your face. Terrible
Ashley from US
I had such high hopes for this foundation. I love Burt's Bees products, but this was a total fail for me. I tried it multiple times with different primers/without, to see if it was the other products, but this foundation separated every single time. I tried with a brush and with different sponges. Foundation came right off as I applied it.
😺pretty good 🤠

pump works great and i would say the coverage is medium. i'm in the shade buff and i really like the foundation. the only reason it's not a five star is because the smell. it smells a little strong but luckily it doesn't smell like chemicals.
Gift from my sister

I only wear Mac cosmetics but my sister gifted me this foundation and I wore it to universal studios all day and night without having to touch it up. I absolutely loved it and the shade matches my skin tone perfectly.
My skin looks beautiful
Ramona from Maine
This provides a nice even coverage, my skin looks natural and glowing. I was not expecting this level of coverage from a natural product. Yes, the smell is strange, but I assume that is because it is a natural product and I am ok with that if I get to ditch the chemicals. The smell dissipates quickly anyway.
Disappointing - poor finish, smelly product
Chrissssss from Maine
I bought this just for fun to try a new foundation in shade Olive. The bad smell immediately got me! It is really bad!
I used this on clean, prepped skin with a beauty blender on one side and a brush on the other. I do NOT recommend using this with a blending sponge, it made my skin looks super texturized. The brush did better, but the finish is cakey and matte. I used 2 pumps for my whole face/neck and tried to blend as much as possible. I only set my under eyes with powder, I did not set my entire face. The product separated and creased all over.
So glowy and natural looking
Mmm92 from Atlanta
I LOVE this foundation. The reviews on the foundation are so mixed. You either love it or hate it. It does have a smell but it just smells natural. I prefer that over something heavily fragranced. The smell reminds me of one of their lip balms. It's the original one without the peppermint or anything. I would say it has more medium coverage. I don't like full coverage foundations. But the coverage is buildable. It has glowy finish but it's not greasy. The BB powder foundation sets it beautifully. I have sensitive skin and this foundation doesn't irritate it. It's very light and I can't feel it when I wear it. I touch up with powder throughout the day with but I don't mind that. It lasts all day for me but comes off easily at night. I would definitely repurchase. It's everything I've been looking for in a natural foundation. I usually don't like foundation because it feels so heavy but this one is great! I have found my favorite foundation and will continue to purchase this. I also purchased the blush in the pink shade and the mascara. I love all of them!!

as soon as I put it on I was questioning if my brushes were clean or if my cat peed on it. seriously it smells that bad. and the smell follows you on your face. I couldn't even eat when I was wearing it bc it ruined my appetite. horrible foundation.
Oily skin? Kept shine at bay for 12 hours!
Ms_Chrys from NJ
PROS: Color selection.
Lightweight yet surprisingly good coverage.
Great for mature skin.
Oily skin did NOT slick this up...by far the best foundation for ULTRA LONG wear without shine.
CONS: Goodness sakes...smells like rancid cooking grease going on. After powder set, you no longer smell it, but it is bad when applying, so much so that I thought my brand new bottle was expired.
Would be a 5 but for the obnoxious smell.
Love it < 3

Great coverage yet still light and creamy. My new fav foundation, also a good price compared to other natural products.
ally from California
This foundation definitely has a bad smell. I could get past it if the formula was better. I by no means have bad skin. I would say it's fairly normal but I feel like this foundation really clings and makes all my breakouts look way worse.
The smell is off putting
KatWalker from Midland
I only wore this foundation once. The smell is so off putting and I can't even remember if I liked the coverage. The smell doesn't seem to disappear-the wearer just gets somewhat used to it, but anyone who comes to chat isn't.
Mzliz from Chicago, IL
I have tried many foundations in the past, but this is by far my favorite. I have dry, sensitive skin, so other brands either look cakey, do not cover well, doesn't match my skin tone, or severely irritates my skin. Burts Bees does none of that. My face looks so clear, even, and glowy after applying. The smell is a bit weird, but not enough to make me stop using it. This is the only one I will purchase from now on!
Perfect coverage, not cakey/easy to put on
Candisfrancis from Los Angeles, CA
I have never been more happy with a foundation. Can wear it all day and not have any creases! Perfect skin tone match.
give to sis
missdrina from Sacramento, CA
I tried this one thinking after doing the survey for first time that I'd get matched up well. It didn't cover well nor blend with my complexion. So I gave it to my sister, and let them know to send me the warm honey (even though it is a little darker).
Smell of organic

I love this foundation for school days! It gets the job done and you do not need a lot!
I love this product
New Mexican from New Mexico
I love the medium coverage and the smell does not bother me at all. I have extremely sensitive skin and the ingredients work well for my skin type.
Tanamarin from Juneau, AK
Coverage and consistency is ok but I rarely use this product because the smell is so bad. It goes away after a few minutes when it dries but it's unpleasant putting it on.
Can't get past the smell
ChrisK96 from Minnesota
The smell is the absolute worst I've ever used for foundation. The coverage is ok. Ever once in a while my eyes will burn and water.
