Great Product

I purchased after reading many reviews. Use on face, chest and hands. The first application was not dramatic as far as results go; but I use daily and the results are fantastic. It took me about a week to get the impressive results. I have very dry skin. My serums and creams were not penetrating into my skin to give me a hydrated look. Now I can easiy tell when the serums and creams are penetrating. My skin is much more even in color, hydrated, healthy looking. I apply the mask work into my skin for a few seconds and leave on for 15 minutes. Remove in shower and use a microdermabrasion product to remove dead skin after I rinse off the mask. I use a heavy cream on my skin after my serums to seal in moisture. The skin on my chest was pebble like and I hated it. This product has removed that look. That took over a week to change, but wow I can wear lower cut tops now and my skin is radiant! My hands were looking rough. My knuckles were so dry even lotion did not help. I use this on my hands every night, remove with a microdermabrasion product then apply a thick lotion. Finally my hands look very nice. I have stocked up on this product, I never want to run out. I also use the eye treatment, spray toner (use throughout the day to freshen up makeup), body polish and body creams. Sometimes I can get lucky and find this product line in stores; but not very often. Finally a product line that works!

quality product

This product is amazing. It works great, smells great, is all organic and is about 4x cheaper than any other enzyme peel on the market (because it is half the price and twice the size). You can also get it almost anywhere. It made a huge difference on my skin and I would recommend it to anyone who has acne or a dull, bumpy complexion. The one down side is that it stings quite a bit, but it’s supposed to do that. And afterward it feels great.

Stay AWAY!

I like the idea of a chemical-free cleanser (especially if it smells good). But it didn’t. The first day I used it, I got PAINFUL acne! I’ve never had painful acne before or since!!! It broke me out big time and it smelled like rotting pineapple. Gross. Please save your money and don’t think twice about this product.

Deep Cleansing Fruity Face Scrub

Alba’s Pineapple Enzyme Facial Scrub is deliciously pineapple with hints of orange juice and dreams of coconut drinks on beaches somewhere very far from home. The tropical escape factor is very present all while the scrub works overtime to remove dull surface cells. Lavender, Aloe, Jojoba, Pineapple, Papaya, Awapuhi, Bromelain and Vitamin E are the base for this creamy cleanser enhanced with a botanical fragrance. The exfoliating granules are very mild and the aloe makes this extra soothing. After one use you can see results in tone/texture and moisture balance, after three uses, you may find yourself ordering a second tube. It is that impressive. Looking forward to trying the travel kit because the products have amazing summery scents that remind me of warm days at the beach.

Not for Sensitive Skin – Read Ingredients First

I love the Alba products because they contain lots of natural ingredients and are a great value for the price, plus I’ve always had good resutls with them. I use the sea kelp products and really like them but decided to try something different for the summer, so I ordered the Jasmine moisturizer and the hibiscus facial toner. The jasmine cream is wonderful and works great on my dry skin but, unfortunately, the hibiscus facial toner caused severe burning to my skin. After I read the entire ingredient listing, I was shocked to find this toner contains sodium hydroxide which is used in such harsh cleaning products as oven and drain cleaners. I do have sensitive skin which, I am certain, caused the reaction. I don’t think this product is for sensitive skin, but be sure to read the entire ingredient list before you decide to purchase it, and if possible, try a sample of it first. I went back to the sea kelp facial toner and have had no further problems.

So Tasty!

My only problem with this lip balm is that it tastes so good I lick it off! If you like coconut anything you’ll love this!

I love that it’s made with 100% vegetarian ingredients and is never tested on animals. The ingredients are also 82% certified organic, which is a nice plus.

Green Tea Moisturizer

Feels great on my skin. The only thing about it that bothers me at all is the smell. It’s not a bad smell and it’s not that strong but I’m pretty sensitive to scents. It probably wouldn’t bother most people at all but you might want to be aware if you have allergies or are really sensitive to smells. I only mention it because I suffer from migraines and scents can be a trigger for me. The product works wonderful for my skin and I love the way green tea makes my skin feel so refreshed.

Best facial product

This has turned out to be one of the best facial products I have ever used.
I have bought some products for a much higher price that did not work as well.
It also has a very pleasant smell. I will try more of this manufacturer’s products in the future.

I’m really happy I tried this moisturizer, it is amazing. At first I didn’t think 3oz of this stuff would be enough to last me very long but a little really goes a long way. My skin soaks it right in but you only need a little bit of it. I think I use less a dime-sized amount to cover my entire face. It’s not greasy at all and just leaves your skin feeling incredibly soft. The first time I used it at night, I used it before going to bed and when I woke up the next morning, my face was noticeably clearer. It even helped diminish my pimples.
LeeFranklin Grove, IL

Good stuff!

This seems to be a good all-around moisturizer. I use it at night, as I like my day products to contain an spf. It sinks in well and leaves my skin feeling very soft and smooth. It doesn’t cause breakouts (which is easy to do with my sensitive skin). My luck with Alba products has mostly been great with one exception. The Sea renewal cream was way too oily and harsh on my skin. Other than that, I’ve never been disappointed. If you are looking for gentle, oil-free moisture, this is your golden ticket.

Very good product for HCG users

This moisturizer is very good and doesn’t make the skin feel greasy/oily, but gives great relief and soft feeling for those who have to avoid oily products while using HCG. Highly recommend this product.

Great Moisturizer, Overpowered by Scent

This product moisturizes very nicely. It goes on very smooth and stays on for awhile. I really wanted to love this cream, but the smell is just so overpowering. I was expecting a soft, light scent, but this is just so strong and overpowering that it almost makes you dizzy. The smell does not diminish the longer you wear it; I put the cream on before bed, and woke up the next morning smelling like I had just put it on. It’s very unfortunate, in my opinion the smell makes the cream unwearable.

I actually ended up buying this from walmart because I was in need of an oil free moisturizer for my face…BADLY and didn’t want to way 4-5 days for my order to process on here. So I purchased it (and I cringed at the thought of spending 15 bucks on a small container of moisturizer), and applied it to my clean face in the morning and before bed. Let me tell you…


Not only did it feel nice and silky on my face, and it soaked in, but it just cleared my face up! I was so surprised. I thought it was too good to be true and maybe it happened to be one of those days that my skin decided to clear uyp on it’s own. But no, I was wrong… and thank goodness. I continued using the moisturizer twice a day for a week and my face just stayed clear for the entire week. I was so happy!

This stuff is definitely worth the money, and it WILL last you quite a long time since a little DOES go a long way. How little you ask? Just lightly, and quickly tap your finger onto the surface of the moisturizer and that’s all you’ll really need!

Five stars, baby. FIVE STARS!

This cream moisturizes very well without feeling heavy or greasy. It works well for a night or day lotion. Plus it smells great!
MarciBerea, KY

Great Scent!

I like this moisture cream a lot. It feels great on my face and the Jasmine scent is so pleasant. The ingredients are all good too. I don’t use chemcial laden products and Alba makes great natural products. Alba makes several moisture creams in other scents, but the Jasmine is my absolute favorite and I’ll continue to purchase this one. My husband likes the scent a lot too.

Mixed feelings…

I originally tried this product because the “oil-free” caught my eye.
Having an acne prone skin, I thought this moisturizer would be perfect!
But after using this product a few times I noticed a few things…
-This product doesn’t sink into your skin but rather stays on top and leaves your skin feeling oily and greasy.
-My acne continued to break out, even more! 🙁
-Made my skin feel softer 🙂
-Very long lasting, don’t let the 3oz fool you!

OVERALL: I stopped using this product after using about 1/4 of it. But hey, everyone has a different type of skin.
If you feel that this moisturizer might be the one for you, go on and try it!

JohannaStillmore, GA

Very nice..mild

Finally a product in a price range that I can say WoW about!If your looking for a product that delivers positive results that isnt 80 to 100$, I swear this is it. I have combo skin and some light scars around mouth/chin area from acne. The results Ive had from using this is diminished scars (not erased scars), clearer skin. It keeps there appearance down. However this product is mild if your just starting masks or have perfect skin already…recommended.

Alba Toner – great for sensitive skin!

Love this product because I have rosecea on one side of my face and it is gentle enough for that buut strong enough to get rid of any remaining traces of makeup or oil, leaving a nice fresh feeling on the skin. Along with the price being very reasonable, you only use a little on a pad so the product goes a long way.

I purchased this product to use during a weight loss program, to eliminate unnessary oils in my body. I am very happy with this alba oil-free moisturizer. At my age “over 50” I wondered how well a moisturizer without oil would work. Surprisingly well. It leaves my skin feeling refreshed. I used it a few times as a body lotion as well; until I found something more practical.
SharriColrain, MA

Excellent produdt!

I purchased this product as a Christmas present for my daughter… per her request! She really likes this moisturizer. I would highly recommend it.

Great cleanser…but watch the eyes!

I have very sensetive skin (and very hard water!) so it’s hard for me to find a cleanser that doesn’t irritate or dry out my skin. Albas Pinapple face wash is gentle, cleans my face very well and has a wonderful, refreshing pineapple scent to it. A small amount worked into a lather in your hands will do the job. Why only 4 stars? It’s VERY thick and needs a little extra time to wash off. I’ve opened my eyes in the shower a few times thinking this was rinsed clean only to find excess pineapple enzyme wash in my eyes…and it stings! This is the only face wash I’ve used like that which is very odd. I attribute it to its thick texture and the fact that I have very hard water. Be careful with this! Make sure it’s rinsed really really well before you open up your eyeballs. Other than that, it’s a great product and my favorite facial cleanser 🙂

Alba face cream

I have always like Alba brand products from the standpoint that they use plant-based ingredients which are far better for the skin than the other more expensive brands found at Macy’s and the like. One only needs to use about a peas-size for the face as it can be a bit oily. Overall, it’s a good product that I can use right before applying my make-up and use again after washing my face. This jar will last me quite awhile, so I can appreciate that. Pleasant smell too, not overwhelming with fragrance like most facial creams.
ClarineCarlisle, NY

Great product

I have dry skin and wanted a good thick cream to use at night. This cream feels good without being too thick or greasy. I also enjoy the scent. It’s very nice without being overpowering.
CyndiNara Visa, NM

the best lip balm on the market hands down

I love this lip balm and have been using it for around 10 years. It is the only lip balm that thoroughly quenches my dry lips and doesnt taste like soap! Inevitably some lip balm is going to get inside the mouth when using it, and this is fine as it tastes like coconut which I love! Not only that but the ingredients are safe – its not loaded up with chemicals like most. Its the perfect lip balm and I hope it never gets discontinued…. I simply cant go without it, and have never found a lip balm as awesome as this one!
EvalynWauneta, NE

Just so-so

With the ingredients listed I thought it would be buttery soft on my lips but it’s not. Has little smell and a bit stiff. I won’t buy it again.
TamikoReedsville, OH

Good stuff!

I ordered this chap stick looking for something a little more natural that I could feel good about using. I like that it is certified organic, so I don’t feel like I am digesting harmful unnecessary chemicals every time i lick my lips. It has nice mild taste, and goes on really silky.
EllyThompson Falls, MT

Good and Bad, but more good

Good: It works wonders on skin. Face doesn’t look oily + skin stays soft for longer period.

Bad: Smells awfully strong and not too pleasant (actually more like incense stick) so one star less.

Again good: That awfully strong smell disappears after first few minutes. (or that is what I think, will have to confirm with my husband on that)

RenettaWhitesboro, NJ

It’s alright

It smells nice, and has a thick consistency, but rather than call it a scrub, I’d call it a cleanser ; the particles meant to be scrubbing your face aren’t big enough to do much scrubbing; if you want a very,very,very gentle scrub then this may be for you, but for those of you who have used the St.Ives Apricot scrub, and want something more effective then you should look elsewhere. On the plus side, it is partially organic, and natural, and as I mentioned earlier it smells nice. I just saw a review about how it smelled like rotten pineapples, and how it caused a pimple outbreak on the reviewer-I’m guessing it was either expired, or had gone bad so don’t let that scare you away from trying it-you might like it. As for me,I need something with bigger particles so maybe I’ll just do a homemade scrub with sugar-or better yet, I can add a little sugar to the scrub to make it more effective. Oh, and before I forget, my face did look a little brighter after I used the scrub. It isn’t allthat bad, but it’s just not what I was looking for in a scrub.
