What I like about this facial scrub is that it has enough scrubby grit in it. Lots of so-called "scrubs" on the market have so little density of the scrubby bits, that they don't do anything at all. This definitely does, plus it is gentle at the same time. I'm a repeat buyer and use it 2-4 x a week. My make-up goes on so much smoother after I've exfoliated, so I like something effective but gentle. I've also decided to get away from all the fake scents in most commercial product lines, as I suspect they are messing with people's hormones and sense of smell. The natural lines like Alba use natural scents, which I prefer.

Please be aware that the product shown is the old product. This scrub is now "new and improved", and Alba's idea of improving it was to add dimethicone. This is a silicon based ingredient that can cause allergic reactions ranging from skin irritations (my face broke out like crazy after I used it!) to respiratory issues. The ingredients list still lists the old ingredients. Avoid this product! I will be writing a letter to Alba expressing my outrage that they would take a natural and extremely effective product and ruin it by adding unnecessary and toxic chemicals!!

Comments about Alba Botanica Natural Even Advanced Enzyme Scrub, Sea Algae, 4 oz:

Love this product. Does not increase flareups with my rosacea. Keeps the flakes controlled. I use it once a day since I have dry skin. If you have oily skin you might try it more often. Creamy mild rosacea friendly cleansers do not exfoliate my skin and I wind up with many more flare ups and flaky skin.

      Comments about Alba Botanica Natural Even Advanced Enzyme Scrub, Sea Algae, 4 oz:

      This stuff smells like some awful floral bathroom deodorizer. The smell clings and lingers. With so many scrubs out there this wouldn't even be my last choice. Shame on Alba.

        The grains in this scrub are very very small so its gentle on sensitive skin. I use it once a week. Leaves your skin feeling like silk for days!
        Has a really fresh nice smell too.

        Comments about Alba Botanica Natural Even Advanced Enzyme Scrub, Sea Algae, 4 oz:

        This scrub was the best I had ever encountered in my short time on this earth, however, after some time I noticed break outs associated with it's use. In fact, Alba products broke me out, ever so slightly within a week of use. I have been practicing a 'natural' skin care regime for about 8 months now and had to unfortunately alienate my scrub that "did work" with no substitute in it's place. Sad situation.

          I use this every night and the scrub is just enough to not feel too rough. The fragrance is great, which is a plus for me. I have combination skin and I haven't found another product that cleans as well and is still gentle enough to use every day. I highly reccomend this product.

            Comments about Alba Botanica Natural Even Advanced Enzyme Scrub, Sea Algae, 4 oz:

            I don't feel like this was fabulous, but I think it does a good job of exfoliating and keeping the oils from accumulating, and it didn't try my face out or cause redness or breakouts. I have noticed my face is a little smoother. My skin is both sensitive and oily, and I think it works well on both.

            Good product!

            Comments about Alba Botanica Natural Even Advanced Enzyme Scrub, Sea Algae, 4 oz:

            I have combination skin and I used to have rough patches around my jaw and forehead. This facial scrub got rid of the rough patches and smoothed out my skin tone. It is drying though (I use toner after I wash it off and that really helps) and the granules would be rough on people with sensitive skin. I also use the scrub in conjunction with the Alba Deep Sea facial mask so my results may be due to the two working together.

            I bought this scrub as I'm trying to use more chemical friendly products. This scrub is ok, I wish the consistency was thicker - it's a bit liquidy. Slight burning sensation when applied, so probably not good for ladies with sensitive skin.
