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!!

An ok scrub

Pros

  • Improves Skin Texture

Cons

  • Irritates Skin

Best Uses

  • Oily Skin

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

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.

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

      This scrub is neither bad nor good; it is just an average scrub. It does exfoliate; however, the properties of the scrub aren't anything to make it stand out from any other scrub. This works well enough, and I'll definitely finish the bottle; however, I would probably try a different scrub, once it is finished.

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

        I love this facial scrub because it exfoliates with a very fine grit that doesn't damage the skin. It leaves your face feeling really clean and refreshed. You can feel the cooling effect which shrinks the pores after cleaning them out.
        I mainly love Alba products because they are all-natural and cruelty-free.
        This is a GREAT product!

            I'm 32 with oily, acne-prone skin. I feel like this product improves fine lines and clears up oil and pore-clogging dead skin. Even if that's in my head, it feels nice and scrubby. I also hate cleansers with a strong, perfumy smell and this has a very mild scent. I like to use it every morning in the shower to wake me up.

            I have difficult, break-out prone "mature" skin. This cleanser gets my face really clean without irritation or drying. I have been using it for several months. I have been more pleased with the results as I have continued to use it.

                I absolutely love this scrub! I have very sensitive/dry skin and I have no issues with any of the Alba products I've purchased, including this one. I use this scrub almost every day in the shower. It's got a grit to the scrub which you feel when applying (hence the exfoilliation part), but the product is not a harsh one. I HIGHLY recommend this!

                    Recently bought my second tube of this. Makes my sensitive skin feel silky and smooth. I use it several times a week.

                    I love the scent. It reminds me of how fresh the ocean used to smell when I was a child (if you're a boomer, maybe you know what I mean).
