Review: Burt's Bees Soap Bark and Chamomille Deep Cleansing Cream

I've absolutely been loving the Burt's Bees Soap Bark and Chamomille Deep Cleansing Cream for a while now. I had got a deluxe tube in one of the famous Burt's Bees kits last December and had forgotten about it, but during a bad breakout phase in June, I began using it once a day.
Packaging: The usual Burt's Bees white tube. No complaints here.

Formula: Thick, as you can see. Not runny, gloopy. Very smooth; no grains here. NO parabens, sulphates, pthalates, petrochemicals or anything remotely harmful. Unfortunately the full list of ingredients was on the box which I thoughtlessly binned.
Application: Won't lather up - it's a cream cleanser - so if you need to see bubbles to feel squeaky clean, this isn't for you. If I see bubbles, I get warning lights flashing on and my face feels tight; I prefer creamy cleansers. Easy to rinse off. It feels quite tingly-cool when you apply; nothing unbearable - kind of like menthol. Non-drying; you can feel how gentle it is despite the tingly-cooling.
Results: Leaves a squeaky-clean, makeup-free face behind. I love how it has helped with my monthly breakouts; since June, this cleanser has reduced my quota of 2-3 comedones a month to one in the last two months.
Repurchase? Yes! Unfortunately this tube just became empty. I've ordered the full size from Feelunique but suspect it has gone astray so they've sent a replacement (which should have arrived a week ago) :(
