    Review by AJ

    I was diagnosed with dyshidrotic eczema or pompholyx. Unlike regular eczema this results in small blisters covering the palms and soles of my hands and feet, which are extremely itchy. Also accompany this form of eczema is severe scaling of the skin. It makes it very uncomfortable to use my hands and especially my feet. There is no cure for this condition, only symptomatic treatment. I have tried a variety of prescribed creams, ointments, steroids and phototherapy options as well as botulinum injections at the infected sites, homeopathic treatments, acupuncture, extreme nutrition evaluation and modification, and pretty much any and every possible treatment option available aside for immunosuppressant drugs. When medical treatments continued to fail and result in worsening, as well as new symptoms, I resorted to a regiment of keeping the affected sites as moist as possible with lotions and creams to at least prevent the extreme scaling. This allowed me to continue to work without experiencing large skin cracks that are extremely painful. Some creams intensified the blisters while others resulted in no change. One day I was in target and saw some Alba Botanica products on clearance, including the Hawaiian Oil Free Moisturizer. Because of the price I decided to pick some up. Within several days the scaling on my feet was almost entirely eliminated and the amount of new onset blisters was drastically reduced. I have now started to use manuka honey to treat new onset blisters when they occur on occasion and the rest of the time I strictly use the Hawaiian oil free moisturizer. For the first time since I can remember I can function throughout my day without trying to hide the extreme pain and discomfort I feel from the basic use of my hands and feet. Alba Botanica has allowed me to return to a normal functioning way of life without fighting back tears every step I take.

    This product is absolutely AMAZING! I decided to purchase it after reading all of the great reviews online. Now I am going to add to all of those reviews with another 5-star rating! I have VERY oily/sensitive/acne-prone skin and this moisturizer is perfect for me. (It works even better than very expensive moisturizers I have tried.) I noticed the difference after the first use. I will certainly be purchasing many more products from this line. Alba - THANK YOU for making a great product.

    I am so happy that our local drugstore had this! I was looking for a moisturizer that I wouldn't have to order online and had natural ingredients and I hit the jack pot. I'm pretty oily and definitely acne prone, but this moisturizer really helps calm everything down after my routine cleansing. In love!

    I've been using this for years. It's the best moisturizer ever - light, not greasy at all, and very effective. Wears perfectly under makeup. 5 stars for effectiveness, but taking off 1 star for the added artificial fragrance. I don't need my face to smell good, & prefer not to have added chemicals. I'd love to have a fragrance-free version.

    I shave my head daily and need something to keep my scalp from drying out. This moisturizer is awesome, helps sooth razor irritation, and is well worth the extra money that it costs. Recommended for more than just faces!

    This is without a doubt the most amazing moisturizer I've ever used. It makes my face feel so dewy instead of oily like some do and sinks into my skin nicely while leaving my face nice and moisturized. I can't speak for ladies on the makeup wear, but from what I have heard from other females it does seem to wear well under makeup for them. A little goes a long way with this product and it's worth every penny.

    I have tried a lot of different moisturizer form the market, however I have never found one better than this. I started using it by accident like 6 months ago (it was the only moisturizer available at home), and I got so hooked with it. It definitely makes a huge difference in your skin appearance and if I start using another product, pimples immediately come up. I would recommend it to anybody who wants to have a very healthy looking skin.

    This works really well for my combination/oily skin. Especially with summer heat. The smell is a little off-putting, but it's not terrible. It's very natural smelling.

    P.S. I forgot to mention in my last review that this also works well under make-up, just like it says in the package. I don't wear foundation, just loose powder with spf over sunscreen to prevent my face from getting shiny throughout the day. Now, I use this moisturizer first, then, sunscreen, and lastly, loose powder. No little flakes or dry areas, and I don't even have to use bronzer to get that glow :) Nice!

    My skin has been acting up lately, and I think one of the other brands I've been using is the culprit. I still don't know which it is specifically, but I'm glad I looked back and remembered Alba's Refining Aloe & Green Tea moisturizer. I rarely get red bumps or irritated skin, until the past months. I tried to remember what products I used back in college because that was when my skin was in its best condition, even in stress! I remembered that this moisturizer was what I always picked up at the CVS store across my university. :))) I'm sticking to the basics: Alba Even Gel Cleanser, Hawaiian Towelette to tone, and this Aloe Green Tea moisturizer for the finishing touch. I wake up with soft, dewy skin the next day-- Absolutely WONDERFUL ! (P.S. added bonus is that it doesn't leave a heavy, greasy feel, which is great :D ).

    One of my all time favorite moisturizers! It lasted me quite awhile and I seriously used up the entire jar because it felt so good on my skin and never leaves any dry spots on my face. Definitely a great pick up from any drug stores when you don't feel like dropping a load of money at the mall for an expensive moisturizer.

    I bought this moisturizer at Target back in 2009/10ish and have been hooked ever since. This is the ONLY moisturizer I trust with my easy to irritate-acne prone skin. It doesn't break my skin out and leaves it feeling adequately hydrated and looking beautifully dewy. It also works very well under any foundation. It acts like primer as well! This stuff is seriously gold to me. Whatever you do Alba, do not stop producing this miracle product.

    This moisturizer is awesome. I went for the oil free one because even though I do have dry skin (from my eczema), heavy moisturizers make my skin greasy. This says it wears well under makeup and it really does. I never get overly greasy or shiny with it. Also, a tiny dab covers my whole face and neck area so I'm confident that this jar will last a while. Awesome product, totally worth it.

    I'm 42 and still have to deal with acne. I've been using Proactiv Green Tea moisturizer for a couple of years now, but don't feel like I'm getting the moisture I need, even though it does not cause breakouts. After using Alba Green Tea for 2 weeks now, I can really see and feel the difference. My skin is clearer and feels dewy, just what I needed! I am very happy with the results. I tend to have oily skin, so I only use it in the morning and stick with my regular evening routine. With Alba, my Bare Minerals makeup looks so much better, wow! If you're reading this and you're not sure about trying it, do it, you will NOT be disappointed. Thanks Alba!

    Once I hit 40 for some reason I started getting acne and no matter what I tried it only made it worse or like another person said, would for a short time then not so much... This is beyond great, it not only cleared the acne I had, but it seems to be preventing future acne.. I also like that its light but a power house... no residu but you can feel it working... I put a primer over it at night so it works wonders and doesn't wash off on the pillow... THANK YOU!!

    This was great! It smelled nice and fresh, and was very soothing. It went on really light and left no residue or film on my skin. My face is oily in the T-Zone (Forehead, nose, and chin) and normal\dry on the cheeks. This was perfect-moisturizing without leaving any greasiness behind. It also didn't make my skin shiny!

    This moisturizer is incredible! I used to use Cetaphil moisturizer for all skin types and i would get very oily from it. This kind is so light, smells amazing and is not greasy at all. I don't get oily at all anymore when I use this kind whereas before I would have to wipe the oil and grease of my face several times a day. I cant say enough good things about it! Highly recommended!!

    I have tried so many different moisturizers it is ridiculous! With my acne-prone, sensitive, combination skin my moisturizers would work for a bit and then either stop working or break me out. NOT THIS ONE! It is oil-free, which I have learned is the key to moisturizing acne-prone skin and aside from that the green tea and aloe in this one really helps to moisturize and soothe your skin at the same time. Has not broken me out once! In fact, it has helped small breakouts die down faster. Balances nicely after using the toner. Love it! Use it day and night. I finally have found the moisturizer that I will be with for a really really really long time! Thank you so much Alba for making this product. A staple product.

    I have an oily "T" zone and have trouble with dry skin on my cheeks, which leads to angry red skin throughout my face. The first application I saw a difference. I applied about 2 pea sizes of the lotion to my entire face and within minutes the angry redness died down and by the end of the day I noticed light acne scars and the remaining small zits had faded away. By the end of the week my skin was perfect. This product is amazing! I use proactive at the moment, and I am considering switching over to Alba completely. Thank you so much Alba for making this product!

    I have been using Philosophy products for some time. Have been extremely thrilled with them but cost wise I was fed up. Decided to stick with a company that has a fair attitude toward the environment and animals. Also decided to pay attention to price. Stumbled upon Alba and was like WOW! Not only are they all I have mentioned above but I can pick them up at WalMart if I want.

    First things first....a little goes a long way. A dab will do ya. Etc., etc. I liked how it went on. Very thick and creamy but absorbed right in. I got a very fresh feeling after applying and even a bit of a tingle. Then a few hours passed and I wasn't that thrilled anymore. Despite the fact that this is an oil free moisturizer my face exploded with shine and oil. Blah...

    If it were winter and skin was chapped this would do the trick for me. Unfortunately for summer and the time being this will strictly just be a night time ritual for me skipping it in the a.m. before makeup.

    Review by Sam

    As someone who has extra dry skin I've tried just about all the moisturizers available from the store brand kind to even the highly expensive make up counter types. (I'm in my mid twenties and have extremely dry skin.) The store bought ones were always too oily (even if I bought the 'oil free' types) and usually led to blemishes and breakouts...and the make up counter ones made me feel like I was wearing the thickest make up imaginable, my skin just couldn't breathe and, as a result, left not only my pores clogged but my skin angry and red. Overall, the only things that seemed to even remotely work were the organic brands I found at my local organic grocery, but they were pretty pricey so I wanted to look for something more affordable that still made my skin look and feel good.

    I'd been looking for several months when I came across these products at Target while doing my monthly household shopping. I knew they had to be good because nearly the entire selection of this brand was gone, so I grabbed the last one of the moisturizer and decided to hope for the best.

    This stuff is the best moisturizer I've ever tried. It works perfectly under my make up, making my skin feel light and is in no way too oily. It also reduces redness, makes my skin feel smooth and silky, makes my pores smaller, and not to mention it smells divine. The smell alone makes me want to book the next flight to the Islands!

    Thanks Alba, can't wait to try all your other products! Consider me a convert and I will most definitely recommend your products to everyone I know!

    I first bought this product a few years ago because it was on sale and I wanted an oil free moisturizer. I instantly fell in love, it is the BEST facial moisturizer I have EVER used. I absolutely love the fact that it is vegetarian friendly (a tall order some days), and it makes my skin so soft with absolutely no irritation whatsoever, especially around my nose during allergy season. I recommend this product to all my girlfriends. What's even better, is it's easy to love the entire brand, truly wonderful.

    I love this product. My face normally gets super dry during the winter months. I use to use a cheap facial moisturizer and it just wasn't doing the trick any more. I finally decided to take the plunge and buy Alba. Never again will I buy another facial moisturizer product. I have had this for 3 weeks and and noticed a HUGE difference.
