I found this product because I searched for a natural product with supposed anti-aging ingredients that products like Perricone's have, like DMAE. This is much cheaper than a Perricone product!
While more a cream than a lotion, it is very light and non-greasy, rubs in immediately, and I find the scent to be truly light. I hate most scented products (I use only unscented deodorant), but this one is very pleasant and unobtrusive. I use it as a night cream but I think it is light enough to use as a day cream too. I hope it works as an anti-aging cream, but its being natural is good enough for me.

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:

It does its job to even out the skin but you will not see the result over night. Use it for more than 6months. This cream is similar like Shiseide Skincare Night Moisturizer and this is much cheaper!
If your skin is combination, use very thin layer.
Your skin feels smooth in the morning :)

      I had high hopes for this, but I could not get past the smell. "Fragrance" is nearly last on the ingredient list, but I used this for 2 nights and could not STAND the smell of my face on my pillow. Smelled far too much like men's cologne, oddly. Ugh.

        I have been using this product for a year now. This is my substitute or replacement to my Shiseido "The Skincare" line. Both of them work wonders but I pay 2x lesser than Shiseido.
        I have combination skin so I do not need to use this cream a lot except in winter time. When you wake up in the morning, your skin wont feel oily at all but silky texture which is great!I have sensitive skin as well and this product Doesn't break out my skin so I am very happy with it.

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

            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)

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

                I use this in the evenings as my nighttime moisturizer after cleansing and applying my retinol or glycolic acid serums. A little dab on the forehead, cheeks, chin and neck is all you need to massage it into the skin. I love the texture and the way it absorbs. I wake up with smooth, moisturized skin. I also love the vegan and organic ingredients. It doesn't contain parabens or anything that disturbs me or my skin. And it doesn't cost a fortune. Also, it isn't tested on animals. Great product.

                  I find this product wonderful to use. I have only been using it for a few weeks but find that it fits the bill. I always look for products that are on the natural side and don't test on animals. I would buy this again.

                      I LOVE this moisturizer. I recently started using a cleanser with glycolic acid to help get rid of hyperpigmentation spots. It left my skin really dry no matter what moisturizer I used, especially at the corners of my mouth and my nose. This cream took care of that in no time flat. It's creamy and smooth and just so lovely. I have sensitive skin and it hasn't bothered me at all. It's perfect for anyone with sensitive or dry skin, especially if it's caused by acne or wrinkle medications.
