I rarely write reviews, but i've been sooo happy with this product that I had to!

I've dealt with acne for the longest time in my life. It started when I was in about 7th grade, but cleared up for the majority of high school. I didn't have discoloration problems or anything.

However, I entered college, and because of bad eating habits and stress, my skin started acting up! I was able to get my acne under control again, however I had red spots all over my face that would NOT go away. I tried natural remedies, and expensive creams like loreal spot corrector, but nothing was working. I would even put foundation at home with my roommates because I was embarrassed to be seen with markings.

One day I stopped by at kroger to try out a night cream, and I stumbled upon the alba botanica even advanced cream. I saw that it helped with discoloration so I thought why the heck not?

I am sooo happy I did that because honestly, my red marks have significantly improved upon using this cream. Im not saying it goes away immediately, but it has helped me more than any other cream I've tried.

MY ADVICE FOR PEOPLE SUFFERING WITH ACNE & SCARS:
1) drink plenty of water ( coconut water is awesome for skin! some people find it hard to take down, but it benefits your skin)
2) take multivitamins ( such as vitamin A, E, D)
3) use this cream :]
4) exercise (as much as a short brisk walk 30 minutes)
5) Add foods such as spinach, pomegranate, avocados, grapefruit etc.

that is honestly the best and cheapest way to tame acne. It's so much cheaper than dermatologists (i've been to many and have spent literally hundreds of dollars on medicines I don't use anymore)

I wanted to love this because I heard so many things about Alba products and decided to buy a lot of them at once. This cream was suppose to be my savior but it wasn't. It kind of burns your skin especially if you get it on your lips. The smell wasn't that bad, I didn't mind but I broke out pretty bad. I have combo skin and not acne prone but for some reason I broke out like I was a teenager on hormones. I didn't know what it was until I stopped using this cream and my skin cleared up. I can't say this is bad for everyone but use with caution ladies with sensitive skin.

      Comments about Alba Botanica Even Advanced Night Cream with DMAE & Thioctic Acid, Sea Plus Renewal, 2 oz:

      this is the cream I always return to after using other more expensive products. I love it so much and it has a nice effective cocktail of alpha lipoid acid and vitamin C ester (dr perricone) and also DMAE (dr perricone) and also sea algae extracts (creme de le mer). To boot, there is no dimethicones or petroleum products in it. It's all vegetable and plant based moisturizing ingredients. This product really moisturizes great, doesn't gum up, won't break you out, and it makes my wrinkles minimized and contours look firm. I have used this for over 5 years, I have bought at least 15 jars. buy it now. By the way, I am 41, and I just bought my mom 2 jars and she loves it too. better than okay for sure, a stellar value compared to the dept store with equal results.

          It's a little pricey and one of the few things that I'm willing to pay extra. It's good at keeping my face healthy as a sleep. Also it doesn't trigger my acne which is especially nice.

          Comments about Alba Botanica Even Advanced Night Cream with DMAE & Thioctic Acid, Sea Plus Renewal, 2 oz:

          I used to use this stuff at night during the summer when my skin and body was taking abuse from sunlight, extensive day drinking, and exercise. I would have big burned cheeks and rough spots that this product would take care of in a nights rest. However, after some time i noticed recurring problem areas with my skin and it seemed to associate with the product. Everyone's skin is different and if you don't have sensitive skin - go for it, because it does wonders. I will however, will not be buying this until the ingredients change.

                  I recently started using this so I think I will appreciate it even more in the winter, but even now it's a nice night time moisturizer. It takes a little time to absorb but it doesn't leave my skin greasy at all. The smell takes a little getting used to but it doesn't linger.

                      I typically buy Clarins or Laura Mercier. Some of their creams have a slight order that I find annoying, but with Alba sea plus renewal, the smell was unbearable and it made my skin tingle...

                      Not worth returning to Alba, but won't be buying again.
