I was trying to find something to get rid of the cystic acne on my chin, I wanted to temporarily try something new other than my go to face wash. I found this at Target and it was very decently priced. Here’s the good news: it took care of the cystic acne and dried it up within two days.

I was surprised to see all of the negative reviews for this cleanser, because I love it and have been using it for years! I have dry skin that can be a bit sensitive, and it strikes the perfect balance between gentleness and effectiveness. Most other cleansers either make my skin feel extremely tight after cleansing, or do almost nothing to remove my makeup (e.g. Cetaphil). I don't think …Read more

I recently bought a second bottle of Alba Botanica Deep Pore Wash. This is probably my favorite cleanser on the market. I like the consistency of this face wash, it's almost like a gel.

Will …Read more

Oh, lord. I hope this review saves a few of you from bothering with this stuff. I forgot my usual body sunscreen while traveling and bought the Alba Botanica Kids Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 at a nearby grocery store. I'm always on the lookout for affordable fragrance-free physical sunscreens, so in the absence of reviews I decided to risk it.
