      Comments about Alba Botanica Natural AcneDote Face & Body Scrub, 8 oz:

      i really love this product - i was looking for a gentle exfoliator that was also organic and had no harmful ingredients added. after reading the positive reviews for this on drugstore.com, i decided to try it (especially since it has a great price!) i use it 2-3 times a week, and have definitely noticed an improvement. i have combination skin, and no real problems with acne besides an occasional monthly breakout. after a harsh winter my skin has been through the ringer - this product is gentle and smells nice (light, citrus smell), but is very effective as an exfoliator. after using it, my skin is smooth and clear, and not over-stripped or over-dried. it's also very helpful for rough elbows and feet. my boyfriend also loves it - and he has very sensitive skin. definitely worth the money, and then some!

        Comments about Alba Botanica Natural AcneDote Face & Body Scrub, 8 oz:

        I have been using Acnedote scrub for over a year now and I dearly hope that they never stop making it! I had previously used a Biore product and Neutrogena before that. For years I thought that dry, irritated skin was the trade-off for getting acne under control. Then I tried Acnedote... My skin is now flawless, not just under control. I very rarely have any blemishes. I use the scrub before bed and follow it with moisturizer. Since I started using Acnedote, people have commented on my skin so often that I no longer wear foundation. I don't need it. With the right moisturizer (one made for full day use, like Enzymion) I have no need to cover acne or uneven skin tone caused by too harsh cleansers. Yes, it is really that good.

          I use this only once or twice a week.
          Can be used all over or just for face. Is a great exfoliater and super for the price.
          Has a tingling sensation from the mint and smells great.
          I will continue to but this my entire life.

            This stuff is amazing. I actually can't think of anything I don't like about it! Even the price is nice considering how little you need compared to similar scrubs.

            All I will add (besides that every claim on the bottle and in the product description) is that this scrub really works well to prevent ingrown haris for those of us who wax and/or are undergoing laser hair removal. I used to have problems with ingrown hairs whenever I wax my underarms. No more. And, unlike other products with S. Acid, this doesn't dry out my skin. I can use it every day with no problems.

              Seems to be effective on acne, scrubs away dead skin well but without being irritating.

                I've struggled with dull, acne prone skin my whole life. I've been on all sorts of prescriptions and tried tons of harsh cleansers. When I got pregnant, I couldn't use my prescription cream (BenzaClin) so I opted for the natural route to try and keep my skin clear. I started using this cleanser and was blown away. At first my skin felt a little raw and was red, but it went away within 20 minutes. I was left with glowing skin. It's gentle enough to use morning and night and it removes make-up without a problem. I don't have body acne so I can't speak to it's effectiveness there but if it's anything like it works on the face it's awesome. My breakouts have pretty much subsided with the occasional cystic spot on my chin (my biggest problem area). I've been a hormonal mess while pregnant and I know my skin would look terrible if I hadn't found this cleanser.

                  I use this every other day on my face, primarily. I've found it very effective at controlling oil and minimizing breakouts. I have fair, sensitive skin, so I was worried this product might be too much for me, but it has been wonderful to combat oily zones and breakouts. I also love the spot treatment from this line. Overall, I was looking for a more natural way to treat breakouts - this seems to be the ticket.

                    I recently bought a bunch of natural cosmetic products. Out of all the products I bought, this one stands out because i immediately saw a difference in my skin both on my face and my back. The actual solution from the tube was not the prettiest and it had a bit of a runny texture so I was skeptical but I was pleasantly suprised how great it worked.
                    My face was kind of glowy after. My face wasn't left dry either.

                      I love this scrub! I use it daily in the shower since I have combo/oily skin.

                      The granules in the scrub are perfect for removing extra oils and smoothing out the texture of the skin on my back, shoulders, legs, etc. I have tried many a scrub and some of the scrubbing granules are either too big (leaving behind scratches) or too fine (doesn't exfoliate at all), but these are the perfect texture.

                      Really good value too because this tube of scrub is huge! I've been using it for 3+ months daily and I'm finally almost due for another... usually other scrubs run out within 1-2 months with daily use.

                      The first time I used this product, I fell in love. It smelled great, it had a pleasant tingling sensation, and it left my skin super smooth.

                      Then two small problems arose. The first was that it didn't control the oil on my face over the day at all (as opposed to my previous product, Clarins 3-in-1). The second that, used daily without any sort of moisturizer, I soon found myself itching in some of the drier places on my face. Badly.

                      I intend to try the accompanying lotion for the oil problem (which may also help with the itching), but in the meanwhile, any facial lotion applied in the mornings seems to help with the itching.
