Spotted: NEW Burt's Bees Cleansing Oil with Coconut & Argan Oils

Wait, what? Burt's Bees has a new cleansing oil?? I haven't even found the new Simple Cleansing Oil yet!

Many thanks to reader Becky for this one. Becky spotted this display at her local CVS this week and kindly shared some pics:

NEW Burt's Bees Cleansing Oil with Coconut & Argan Oils
(retail: $15.99 at CVS, 6.0 oz.)

The other three products in this display are NOT new; they are from the existing core line. The only new item in this display is the cleansing oil.

Keep reading for more pics and details...

Notice under the part that says "Burt's Bees Cleansing Oil with COCONUT & ARGAN OILS" that it also says: "NORMAL AND DRY SKIN."

Can I get a collective "whomp whomp" from my fellow oily-skinned peeps? Yeah, that bummed me out too. The Garnier Cleansing Oil is also formulated for dry skin, and we all know how well that worked for me. I don't want to assume that this product will leave a heavy film on the face, and in fact there's some info on the Ulta site that is in direct opposition to that idea. This product is now listed on the Ulta website (it's not yet available for purchase as of the time of this post), so here's the copy from the item listing:

Burt's Bees Cleansing Oil gently removes dirt and make-up, but won't leave an oily residue. Formulated with a unique combination of natural moisturizers, including Coconut and Argan oils, our cleansing oil is Dermatologist-tested and clinically shown to both cleanse and soften skin, naturally. Native to the tropics, Coconut Oil acts as a natural moisturizer that helps soften and smooth skin. Argan Oil is rich in antioxidants, and nourishes skin. Our unique blend of these natural oils gently cleanses your skin and keeps it feeling moisturized.

So it WON'T leave an oily residue? Well I'm hopeful that's the case! Here are the full ingredients, also from the Ulta site:

Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Crambe Abyssinica Seed Oil, Isoamyl Laurate, Polyglyceryl-2 Sesquioleate, Fragrance*, Polyglyceryl-2 Caprate, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Tocopherol Natural Fragrance.

The first ingredient, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, is an emollient that is derived from coconut oil and glycerin and gets high marks from Paula's Choice. The second ingredient is Crambe Abyssinica Seed Oil. There isn't a whole lot of info online about this oil, but I did find this article with some info that might be helpful to you (also, this oil is in this new leave-in hair treatment that I reviewed a while back). 

Here's a closer look at the bottle:

Have you spotted this new cleansing oil in your area yet? Thoughts?

Thanks again, Becky, for the great sighting and pics. I really appreciate it!


  1. The price is so steep. Coconut and argan oils are not that expensive...

    1. Yep, and it doesn't look like there's a whole lot of either in this formula. I'll definitely have to use some extra bucks and wait for a sale for this one...

    2. That was my first thought too! $15.99? That is very pricey. In one way I think they price these oils higher because they are trending right now. I agree that the oils are not that expensive...

  2. I suppose I might try it at least once. I'm glad to see other drugstore cleansing oil options. However, I'm doing fine with the Freeman/Eclos cleansing oil. And at only $11 plus using the $3.50 off $10 Ulta coupon that is always around, $7.50 for the Eclos option is terrific. (I used to love the MAC Cleanse Off Oil until they jacked the price so high. I started using it when it was $18. I think it is around $30 now!)

    1. I love the Eclos cleansing oil too! It's the closest drugstore alternative that I've found to my beloved holy grail DHC cleansing oil. :)

    2. I love the Eclos cleansing oil too! It's the closest drugstore alternative that I've found to my beloved holy grail DHC cleansing oil. :)

  3. There is a Neutrogena cleansing oil on ultas website, and it says nothing about skin type :)

  4. I would like to try this but the price is too much and I don't think I ever see Burt's bees on sale. I will stick with my HG which is Garnier.

  5. i have had pretty good luck with a couple of burt's bees cleansers so i'm looking forward to trying this but i'll wait for my next CVS extra bucks!

  6. Bought this clea using oil today and used it to remove my makeup before bed. First impression: thin formula. Smells good. I got a little "blurry vision" but it could be because I used too much near my eyes. Rinsed very clean! I have very dry skin and to be honest my skin felt a little dry after use. Might work well for oily skinned people!

  7. Got this in my ipsy package this month and absolutely love it. I think it is pricey and had it not been for Ipsy I probably would never have tried it but I will now. That's what's cool about ipsy & Birchbox you can try these products without spending an arm & leg & wasting money on a product if you don't like it.

  8. I really like it, but I like the smell of Neutra face oil much better, you can not go wrong with any BB product, everything they make to keep your skin young and fresh really works...I am loyal to the bone!
