Treatments (Face) -Alba Botanica -ACNEdote Invisible Treatment Gel

on 7/10/2018 4:27:00 PM


Probably the best natural acne spot treatment I have tried. For me this dries up blemishes in 2 days. It does sting a little so I only use a tiny amount. It is pretty strong so I don't use this repeatedly on a spot but 2 nights is all you really need for healing.

Lotions/ Creams -Alba Botanica -Very Emollient - Herbal Healing Body Lotion

on 6/28/2018 5:07:00 PM

This seems to be the newest variety of lotion from Alba Botanica. It makes for a perfect spring/fall lotion. It’s not greasy and it leaves the skin very soft and supple. It has all natural ingredients and no added fragrance which is a huge priority for me. It is vegan and cruelty-free too. 😻 Added bonus is colloidal oatmeal and bamboo extract. What more can one ask for?

I also really like the scent of this lotion, compared to other AB lotions. It is a herbal, citrus-y grassy blend and being a natural scent, it is mild and non-interfering. Ingredient list does show it has Bergamot oil, lemon, lime, orange peel oils which may be irritants for some, but for me this was not a problem.

Since it has no dimethicone or silicone components, it takes time to get the skin to absorb the lotion, so best to use it on slightly damp skin. It is soothing for the skin but have to wait for winter to try this on really dry, scaly skin.

I bought the lotion on a sale for $7 but the regular price is $12.

Treatments (Face) -Alba Botanica -Acne Dote Pimple Patches

After trying these for the first time last night, I would recommend lowering your expectations on these despite the overwhelmingly positive reviews online. I am a veteran user of patches from Nexcare and COSRX and only decided to try the Alba ones for non-pustule lesions (in other words, for spots where Nexcare/COSRX would not offer any benefit).

For one, the Alba patches, even after 9-hour application, appeared to have done basically nothing in terms of improvement of the acne lesions.. That would not be anything horrible in my book, but unfortunately, they have left me with red marks after removing the patches -- apparently the adhesive is quite strong. In short, I can not recommend these.

Moisturizers -Alba Botanica -Hawaiian Aloe & Green Tea Oil Free Moisturizer

on 6/2/2018 4:06:00 PM


Wanted very much to love this product.
It smells good and is paraben free.

It worked ok for the patch test on my wrist.
It worked fine when I used it for the first time, layered over a serum from another brand.
However, when used on its own, on freshly washed skin, it caused a burning and stinging sensation.

Washed it off immediately, and calmed the irritated skin with my trusty Physiogel AL cream.

Perhaps this item will work well when layered over another product, or maybe applied on skin that wasn't just cleansed.

Lotions/ Creams -Alba Botanica -Alba Hawaiian Kukui Nut Body Butter

on 5/31/2018 9:11:00 PM


In one word: Amazing. This stuff is the bees knees. I can’t imagine wanting to use another body cream ever again! My favorite thing about it is actually the texture.. it’s like a thick, smooth pudding. It glides on like a dream, and really penetrates the skin. My skin feels so deeply moisturized after, unlike anything else I have ever used. The biggest difference I can see is in my FEET. They are always flaky (gross, I know), peeling, and dry no matter what I do. I get regular pedicures, pumice them often, and use thick cream on them every night. Let me tell you, nothing has made as big a difference as this. My skin feels like butter from head to toe. I use this before bed so it can really soak in, and my skin looks and feels amazing. Don’t even get me started on the smell! Truly divine. This stuff is heaven. I only wish they sold it in huge tubs, because I would buy this in bulk if I could. I hope they never discontinue this because I am so glad I found it. Just do yourself a favor and go buy it. You will not be disappointed! HG body cream.
