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

    This is my HG scrub. I use this weekly to exfoliate my face. Very pleasant herbal smell. The pulverized walnut shell grains are very fine and is not abrasive at all to the skin (I've used other scrubs where the grains are very abrasive). Natural ingredients. Applies smoothly and rinses off nicely. I especially like the cool, tingly sensation (from the peppermint oil... huge fan of peppermint oil). My skin has seen improvement since using, but I've also made radical changes to my diet and lifestyle. Good value; ~$7 for an 8 oz tube. Will keep buying/using.

    This product works great for treating and preventing breakouts on my back. The scrub is just course enough and makes my skin feel soft.

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

      Not-to-harsh scrub that turns into foam with the contact of water while you use it. It gives a tingling/cooling feeling to the face and smells earthy(in a good way). It's not reccomended to use everyday, but i can't help myself because it takes makeup (even waterproof) off so well. It does a better job compared to any expensive makeup wipe (FE: the neutragena ones).. My face has cleared up greatly with the use of this, and it has reduced the amount of oil produced. Best used in the shower... Best thing of all, you get a huge bottle of it with a good price, so its very worth it.
      I used to use the St.Ives Green Tea Scrub before this, which is also great, but this one is just a tad bit better.

      CONS: do not reccomend for dry-skin, unless you use a hydrating cream afterwards... need to be careful about squeezing the product out b'cus it comes out more than you need

      Just to throw out there, for more acne-fighting tips, in a small bottle you can mix witch hazel with a few drops of tea tree oil and use that as your toner afterwards(very refreshing).. followed by moisturizer. Even for oily-skined people, moisturizing afterwards should be a must.

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

        I don't use this every morning; I use it when I shower, which is pretty much every other day. My face has been getting clear because of this. The scent is very strong, that's why I use it in the shower. If you're not careful you might pour out more than you intended. Works good though!

        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.

          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.

              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!

                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.
