I've tried a ton of the moisturizers out there... Neutrogena, Almay, Oil of Olay, and Aveno to name a few brands. I have very sensitive / dry skin and have been looking for a good everyday moisturizer with a little SPF in it. With most every band listed above, the second I applied even their most sensitive moisturizer available, I would feel anything from a little redness and irritation to burning. NOT THE CASE WITH THIS MOISTURIZER! I hesitated to purchase because the bottle is on the smaller size for the money, but thought I'd give it a try. I am soooo happy I did, because I absolutely love this product. No burning, no irriation, goes on lightly, and I think it's really improved the condition of my skin. I've been so happy to just apply after my morning showers and leaving the house without any makeup on because my skin looks so good. Do not hesitate to try!!! It's so worth it.

Not for oily/combo skin

This is an excellent moisturizer, but it is not well-suited for my oily skin. Smells great and lasts all day, but can exacerbate pimple-prone skin. Also, contains parabens and other icky stuff, so the "natural" product label is misleading.

    Love this for my daily moisturizer, feels good on my sensitive skin and makes it look nice too. Lightweight, good price, no cruelty. Thanks to drugstore.com for having no-cruelty products - we love our animal buddies.

        Comments about Alba Botanica Even Advanced Moisturizer, SPF 15, Sea Moss, 2 fl oz:

        This product is just too heavily fragranced for me to use! I absolutely love the Alba brand (lots of great products, decent prices, cruelty free, natural ingredients). However, this particular line has such a strange and bothersome scent. What makes it worse is that with this particular product, the scent seems to stay ALL DAY! I just couldn't do it. If they were to make an unscented version, I would swoop this up in a hot minute.

              I love that this is animal friendly, has green tea in it to improve my skin, and has sunscreen in it so I don't have to use a bunch of products on my face.

                I'm really bothered by scented face lotions. I used this once and the smell drove me crazy all day. Face lotion doesn't need to be scented. This was a nice lotion but had to stop using it because of the smell. Too bad...

                  It's so hard to find a moisturizer with sunscreen that doesn't have oxybenzone. I searched high and low for this one. Unfortunately, this stuff has a very strong smell to it that I could not tolerate. I was hoping it would dissipate as the day wore on, but it did not. I'm not usually allergic to scented things but this just made my nose burn. It also made me break out, which is unusual. I stopped using it after 1 day.

                    I just bought this and have yet to see i it works well, but the smell is AWFUL! It smells like Suncreen and CAT LITTER! Dont buy this unless you dont mind the smell of cat litter on your face.

                        I bought it because it has SPF in it. But when I put it on, my face doesn't feel moisturized and I usually supplement with a thicker moisturizer. Kind of defeats the purpose so not really worth my money.

                          This product work really well for me (I have oily skin but dry patches too); it doens't make my skin any oiler but it does moisturize and I like that it has sunscreen.

                          However, I'm a little concerned about the preservative in it. It looks like, from the Alba website, they may have replaced the paraben that is listed above in the ingredient list with phenoxyethanol, a different preservative that may (or may not) pose less risk.
