I am very pleased with this product. I am skeptical of almost all the facial products I buy, and when I checked out the ingredients of my Olay wash, I freeked out. Since it was all made of chemicals. I decided to steer away from chemicaly based products, since they cant possibly do good for anyones skin! I found this and liked the ingredients, the scent is light and not to heavy. I know there is "botanical fragrance" in it, but being the last ingredient listed. There is barely any in it! I went home and used it, emedietly feeling a difference! I have combination skin, that gets easily irriated. And I was very happy to find my skin didnt react to this! It actually improved within a week, and was very even, cleared up,and glowing! It rinses off without residue. The my only complaint, is that it is a little drying, so make sure to moisturize! I jump around with face products alot, but I am definately sticking with this one!

I bought this product for the fairly natural ingredients I found listed above, however, upon receiving the item I noticed that the ingredients listed on the container do not match the ones listed here. The ingredients listed above that were not found on the product are:Sodium Myreth Sulfate, Soyamide DEA, Citrus Grandis, citric acid, phenoxyethanol. The ingredients listed on the product but not listed above are. Sodium Lauroyl sarcosinate, Sodium cocoyl isethionate, bisabolol, Carrageenan, Sodiuim Benzoate. The frangrance ingredients are, Iinalool, limonene, and benzyl benzoate.
I returned the product to drugstore and called alba, they said they strive for complete accuracy and said the ingredients on the bottle are the correct ones. I can't give it a bad or good review because I didn't try it. Just wanted to save people the hassle if they don't like the ingredients.

Comments about Alba Botanica Even Advanced Cleansing Gel, Sea Mineral, 6 fl oz:

I use this product nightly to wash the makeup and daily grime off my face. It's a great natural product, lathers well, doesn't overly dry my oily/combo skin, but also doesn't over-moisturize it (not creamy). Will not get all your make up off on it's own - I recommend one pump on a Buf-Puf or other facial sponge that you like. This makes the product just about perfect and adds some exfoliation.

    Comments about Alba Botanica Even Advanced Cleansing Gel, Sea Mineral, 6 fl oz:

    Recently discovered the cause of my itchy blotchy face is a combination of allergies and lupus so I changed to all organic products. I tried other brands but the Alba Even cleanser leaves my face feeling clean but not overly dry. If you have sensitive skin, give this a try and pair with the toner.

    Comments about Alba Botanica Even Advanced Cleansing Gel, Sea Mineral, 6 fl oz:

    Everything about this product is fine, but the smell is overwhelmingly reminiscent of men's aftershave or some cologne sample you'd pull out of a magazine. Sad to say, it makes me grimace every time.

      This product smells amazing. I am generally not very picky about face washes, so if you have pretty normal skin, this will work very well for you.

            I have been using this cleanser for a while and have loved it. The formula has changed and it made me break out horribly. I'm going to keep using it and see if my skin calms down, but buyer beware: this is not the same as it was.

                    I love the Alba Botanica line. The only con to this cleanser was that it was a little drying so left my skin a little tight. However, when I used with the Sea Kelp toner (or followed by a light moisturizer) my complexion felt great.

                      I normally would spend a fortune on the products that go on my face, but I've found the Alba sea line works far better than most other brands I've tried and costs way way less. I've tried dermalogica, jurlique, clinique, origins, etc. However, I plan on staying with this face wash, my Alba moisturizer and toner for a long time to come.
