Honest reviews


Smells great but misleading.

This products smells really good but the name is misleading. It is not a “Vanishing Cream” per se, and it says that on the box but it also says they call it a vanishing cream because of how it vanishes into your skin when you use it. However, the latter is not so true. It is a thick cream that definitely leaves a slightly greasy film on your skin, which is not bad if you are going to sleep. In fact, it is what you probably do want on your skin while you sleep. But they should make the word “Vanishing” vanish from the box.

Grease and Oil

I read good reviews on this product, so I thought I’d give it a try. The smell was a bit much, but didn’t hang around long. It was the very greasy feeling that was left on my skin that I did not care for. All other reviews said it was light and “vanishes”. Mine did the opposite. It was like thick vaseline that clung to my face and actually had to be rubbed in for awhile to get it to “vanish”. Doesn’t all face cream vanish? But it was the very heavy oily greasy smelly feeling on my skin that was the annoyance. I think I will stick to Olay.

Smells like Juicy-fruit gum but that smell goes away quickly after applied. The cream is sticky, though. Not sure how well I like it yet.

Beware if your skin reacts to stearic acid

The ingredients of this product are:Rose Water, Sunflower Oil, Stearic Acid (Vegetable Fat), Mango Butter, Vegetable Glycerin, Beeswax, Natural Flavor, Grapeseed Oil, Rose Hip Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Marshmallow Extract, Willow Bark Extract, Calendula Flower Extract, Rosemary Leaf Extract, Fragrance, Sucrose Stearate (Sugar Emulsifier), Tocopherol, Beta Carotene, Xanthan Gum (Natural Thickener), Sodium Borate (Natural Borax), Glucose & Glucose Oxidase & Lactoperoxidase (Sugar and Natural Enzymes)Stearic acid is an inexpensive moisturizing ingredient that is on every list of acne-generating ingredients. If you don’t react badly to it, you will probably like this. Since learning what causes my acne (it’s entirely product-related and stearic acid is the #1 culprit), I avoid it completely.

Sticky feeling!

I did not like this product. It is a deep moisturizer that is thick and feels sticky. It would be good if you had say chapped cheeks. For every day use, no! It broke me out just a bit with acne due to it’s not breathing well. My bottle arrived with a bit of oil floating around on top of a very thick goo. Maybe it was old or something, I don’t know, but it didn’t look smooth at all, and it just felt too gooey for me. I like the radiance day creme.

Delicious Fragrance

When I first tried this Marshmallow Vanishing Crème in a sampler kit, I purchased five more kits and then a 1.5 ounce glass container of this product. Can I say it is addictive?Yes, I guess it does have a banana cream pie scent and the texture is similar to a banana cream pie topped with whip cream. To say this is decadent is an understatement. You will be very tempted to slather your entire body in a good helping of this cream.Fortunately, it goes a long way and absorbs extremely well. In fact, that is why they call it “vanishing” crème. The ingredient list is impressive and contains rose water, mango butter, beeswax, grapeseed oil, rosehip seed oil, Vitamin E, marshmallow extract, willowbark extract, calendula flower extract, and a heady fragrance.Grapeseed oil is one of the most powerful antioxidants and is high in proanthocyanidins, a group of bioflavonoids that are superior because they are water soluble. This ingredient also prevents skin cell damage caused by pollution and sun exposure.”Marsh Mallow” is actually a pink flowering herb found in marshes and damp meadows. It has been used for centuries as a food and a medicine. The leaves and roots secrete an emollient fluid with healing properties for inflamed skin. In the past, people boiled the roots in wine to make a cough remedy.I found this luscious creamy dreamy product to be healing for the body and mind. Not only will you feel comforted by nature, your skin will be baby soft and this product can be used for all-over body healing. The silver lid and glass jar have an unusually cute appeal.If you love this product, you might want to try the Pore-refining mask, Evening Primrose Overnight Crème and the very unique parsley blemish stick. To take luxury to the next level, try the Shea Butter Decollete Crème on your feet, hands or all over your entire body. What an amazing line of products. They heal, protect and soothe your mind.I’m still trying all the Burt’s Bees products, and love how these products make me feel. They add a level of protection to your skin care routine and the clay mask I recently tried cleaned my pores like a dream.~The Rebecca Review
