Lip Treatments -Alba Botanica -Very Emollient Sunblock Lip Care SPF 25


On paper great because it's cheap and provides sufficient protection. It also doesn't leave a white cast like the Alba moisturizing lip balm with SPF. However, the problem with this one is how flaky it leaves my lips. It looks like there's a ton of dry skin after using it. So, I'd rather pay much more for a lip balm that actually stays on and feels/looks normal.

Sunscreen -Alba Botanica -Sensitive Mineral Sunscreen Fragrance Free SPF 30

on 11/23/2018 8:12:00 PM


Yes, it is thick/heavy & tenacious. It takes some time blending, but the white cast did disappear on my fair skin. For some reason this started to make my skin feel tight, especially my forehead after day 2, but may be perfectly fine for those not so sensitive.

Scrubs -Alba Botanica -Hawaiian Facial Scrub

on 11/22/2018 12:37:00 PM


This facial scrub, in a tube, has no parabens, phthalates, or harsh sulfates. No animal testing or artificial colors. All vegetarian ingredients. It's hypoallergenic.
It provides mild facial buffing with papaya and pineapple enzymes.
I apply it on top of my milky cleanser, mix the two, and gently massage it over my face in a circular motion, avoiding the eye area.
After I rinse, my face feels smooth.
I use this twice a week for gentle exfoliation.
I have dry skin, so twice a week gentle exfoliation is just the right amount for me. My skin doesn't feel dry after I use it.

Skincare - Body -Alba Botanica -Moisturizing Cream Shave in Mango Vanilla

on 10/20/2018 5:55:00 PM


Just finished my first tube of this cream shave and would buy again. I was surprised at how little I had to use to cover my legs. It's super thick & concentrated. I clogged up my shaver by using too much the first time. Didn't make that mistake again. It's a very tropical fragrance with a coconut note in it. I didn't have any problems with shaving nicks and noticed that the cream was quite moisturizing. The only complaint I have is that the cream is so thick I had difficulty squeezing the last bit out of the tube. But I cannot think of a better container design for such a thick product. And the per-use cost had to be super-low as this tube lasted a long time. So it was a good buy and a good-performing product.

Sunscreen -Alba Botanica -Very Emollient Mineral Sunscreen Kids SPF 30

on 9/23/2018 1:47:00 PM


I've tried a couple of the other Alba sunscreens and really enjoyed them, so I gave this a go for my young son. I believe the mineral protection and ingredients are better for him than most other formulations; however this was so awkward to use that I cannot recommend it. The formula almost seems to separate on contact with the skin, and rubbing it in feels like rubbing thick paste onto wet slippery skin. It does rub in eventually but it feels strange and gritty, and it's almost impossible to do a thorough job on an impatient squirming child.
