I have been using this product for years; since 2005 to be exact. At about the age of 18 I started having problems with my skin. I was using stuff that was either making my skin too dry (red, tight and irritated) or too oily (skinny with many dark blackheads). I was getting many pimples too, and I had no idea what to do. After trying many different types of lotions and cleansers both organic and drugstore types (L'oreal, O'lay, etc), I came across this one. By that time I had given up hope and scheduled an appointment with a dermatologist. After using this product for even a week I noticed that my skin started to clear up. It's been clear ever since and I've never needed to see that dermatologist after all! Finally, I said to myself, a lotion that agrees with my skin 100 percent. I am so happy with this product and will be completely heart broken when they stop making it. I hope it's not for decades.

I recommend this to anyone with combo skin, just slightly on the dry side. When I put it on (usually after my evening shower), it literally feels like I am adding a blanket of just the right moisture to my thirsty, freshly showered face. It feels so relaxing, and I get that glow that I love. It absorbs quickly, but not immediately (just lightly massage the skin a little; this also increases circulation to the surface of the skin). It does not make the skin oily, but very soft. It is light and airy. It smells fantastic. Also, at the rate I use it (both face and neck; once, occasionally twice a day), a bottle last me about 6 months, so it is very economical. The key is not to use too much at once.

I hope this has been a helpful review, and I especially hope that, if you do decide to try this product, it will offer you the same relief and solution it has given me.

PS: My husband who has normal skin (so lucky) loves it too. I buy one for him and one for me, and we are both very happy campers.

This was my first organic/all natural moisturizer. I have combination skin that is very prone to break outs. I like to use something that is oil free/mattifying during the day and something heavier at night.
This moisturizer is so much better for someone who is slightly more on the drier side. I causes my foundation to oxidize because it makes me oily throughout the day. I have very dry U zone sometimes, and this really calms the dry patches. It also gives a bit of cooling sensation when you first put it on..
didn't cause any breakouts either..
not recommended for oily skin, but I think it will be a decent moisturizer that is free of chemicals for people who are normal to dry skin

    Comments about Alba Botanica Hawaiian Oil-Free Moisturizer, Refining Aloe & Green Tea, 3 oz:

    I have been using this moisturizer for the past 10 years, since I was 19 years. I have combination skin and am prone to acne, as well as sensitive skin prone to dermatitis. I have used MANY different types of skin care products from drug store to department store to specialty store and I have always come back to Alba's oil and green tea moisturizer. It is great for use in dry climates as well as humid climates, I just use a bit more in the winter or when it's dry. I use it day and night along with Dermalogica Essential Cleansing Solution and Murad Clarifying toner.

      Comments about Alba Botanica Hawaiian Oil-Free Moisturizer, Refining Aloe & Green Tea, 3 oz:

      My skin is sensitive w/some rosacea, and can get a tad oily in the summer. I've tried several "oil-free" moisturizer, but they either irritated my skin, or gave this ugly mat look with zero moisture. I've used other products from Alba & decided to try this. Love it! Gives just enough moisture w/out making my face a grease pit. Feels soothing, non-irritating. Gives a nice glow to skin. No sun-screen in it, but I don't care. Sun screens can irritate. My make-up has sunscreen in it & that's enough. Everything doesn't have to have sun screen in it that you put on your face. It's overkill.

          I have very sensitive skin, dry cheeks and an oily t-zone. I am a lotion junkie and my face doesn't like anything better than this! I use it every morning after I wash my face in the shower. It sooths the redness and dryness and feels amazing! It's light weight and absorbs quickly. A little pricey but it does last a long time! I'm hooked!

            I use a moisturizer at night, and I love the Alba brand, but this cream just didn't absorb well into my skin. I'll be sticking with my Clinique Dramatically Different from now on.

            This is my 2nd review. I owed it to Alba because I originally only gave 4 stars. When my jar ran out of Alba moisturizer though, my face and skin really missed it. I had to buy more. It is a bit pricey... however, if you are interested... it's sold in a package of 2 at [@] for [$]. Not bad.

              I love other Alba products so I thought I'd give this facial moisturizer a try. It's great! It has a pleasant scent, goes on smoothly, and absorbs quickly, leaving me with soft skin.
