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

I forgot my usual cleanser while visiting, and my friend had this in the shower -- so I borrowed it. It was great! When I travel, I need to bring all my face stuff with me depending on the condition of the water. This was so nice and thorough, I really didn't need anything else. The smell can be strong while you're washing, but it doesn't linger. Plus, you can use it on your chest and back, too, if you need to. The texture of this scrub is very fine compared to others I have tried, and feels refreshing as opposed to "scouring".

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

    I was looking for something like this. I have very delicate skin that reacts to almost anything. Other high end scrubs would irritate my skin or leave it red, looking like I had tiny cuts on my skin. This scrub was very gentle. I used a dime size amount and gently dispersed it all over, avoiding eye area. After rinsing off the scrub, my face was baby smooth, hydrated and glowy. However, when my face dried it did feel tight so I used my Cetaphil Cream Moisturizer after acne medication and that felt better. I would use this once or twice a week as the exfoliation if provides is very good.

      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.

        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.

          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.

                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!
