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

    I honestly have no complaints about this scrub. I have tried possibly 50 different scrubs in my lifetime and was never satisfied with any single one of them. This scrub came my way as an idea to try because I know Alba puts out some amazing products. This scrub allows me to cleanse daily in the shower or in the tub. I don't do a heavy, heavy scrub but usually lightweight and just enough to clean off the old cells and get out the dirt and oils. I also use it on my face every day and just enough to get off the days oils and my make up. I have yet to find any extreme dryness from the scrub and I am so pleased with the outcome. My skin looks bright, clean, and healthy.

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

      This is so good! I was looking for something more natural to replace the salicylic acne scrub I had been using. This smells great and I feel better to be using something more natural every day.
      I was surprised at first when it came out brown (walnut shells, duh) but since it's just the scrub part not the liquid that's brown, I don't worry about ending up with brown streaks on my face.

        I use this product in the shower daily and I absolutely love it! It feels so refreshing and I love the scent. The main reason I bought it in the first place is because it is cruelty-free, and I am so happy I did. It is by far my favorite cleanser/scrub that I have ever used. Totally recommend.

          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!

            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.

                    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.
