I'll make this short and sweet, I've had acne since I was 14 years old. I have tried so many products, products that cost triple what this bottle costs. I realize this isn't even designed for acne, however after using it for roughly two weeks I noticed a huge difference. My acne is almost completely gone and I strongly recommend this product for anyone. I'll never change my face wash. Thank you so much.
I really love this gentle coconut milk face wash. I do not use it as an everyday facial cleanser. Personally I use the pineapple enzyme cleanser and the sea mineral cleansing gel in the even advanced line only because I feel I need the deeper clean for my particular face needs. However, this product is a blessing and I will tell you why. I love/hate exfoliating my skin with scrubs. I love it because it removes the dead skin cells which I have a problem with shedding naturally which cause small millia on my face. So I have to scrub, but it leaves my face red and irritated because my skin is so sensitive. I now use this gentle coconut milk cleanser after an exfoliating session and my skin feels like it is in heaven. I use one pump and massage it over my red sensitive skin. Immediately the creamy rich lather goes to work to soothe my tender skin. I also feel it removes any particles of exfoliate left on me. The product doesn't really lather up for me and that's just fine because I like the consistency it is already. I can imagine it would work great as a cleanser for someone who needs just a very gentle clean if the other cleansers are too harsh for them. They would probably need to use two full pumps of the product though to use it as a cleanser. This cleanser does have a faint smell and I am not a coconut lover, but this smell is delightful. Like coconut, ginger, and mint. It will tingle on the skin a little bit but so far nothing like a burn or irritating. You should always patch test the product on your skin though to make sure you're not allergic to the ingredients. I do feel like my face is more moisturized, nourished, and soothed after use. I love everything about the packaging, the pump top dispenser, the smell, the ease of use, and the results. If you need a more deep clean, I suggest the pineapple enzyme cleanser for a more mild cleanse. And the deep sea mineral cleansing gel for a deeper cleanse.
My daughter and I both love this!!!! best ever!!
I love, love, love this facial cleanser. I'm a huge coconut fan. This wash smells awesome and it has a very rich consistency. It cleans well (haven't tried any waterproof makeup yet) and leaves a fresh, tingly feeling. Plus the bottle looks great on my sink. :)
This is my absolute favorite face wash. I used to use Clean & Clear cream sensitive skin wash b/c every natural facial cleanser I used irritated my skin with harsh perfume and dried it out. This is the only natural face wash I've tried that doesn't dry my skin out and instead of zapping my acne, it draws the impurities out of my skin and the acne goes away naturally. The best part is that it's not an acne cleanser so even after my hormones settle, I won't need to switch cleaners. I'm so happy with this, I hope to use it for the rest of my life.
I am allergic to everything. Certain scents, additives, and extracts. Even gusts of wind make my face break out into hives. Everything I have ever bought to clean or moisturize my face has left me a red rashy mess. When I was growing up, I just stopped washing my face because it was so difficult to find anything to wash it. This is the only product that I can use. I stumbled upon it at my local organic hipster grocery store. It said hypoallergenic and I thought that I woud give it a go. I got home and had my aloe vera handy but didn't receive a visit from an allergic reaction! I don't trust anything else. It feels like a dream and makes my face smell oh so tropical! If they ever stop making the face wash of the gods, I am screwed. LOVE YOU ALBA!!
Seeking a mild organic cleanser, I stumbled upon this product and decided to take a chance after reading the list of ingredients. I was used to spending a ton of money on fancy cleansers but to my surprise this cleanser has been the best yet! If only I had discovered this gem sooner! I'm obsessed with the delicious scent, velvety texture and how nourished my skin feels! Finally! a product worth talking about, Thank you Alba!
I have rosacea moderate subtype 2 and this stuff is really effective at soothing my skin, reducing redness, and clearing breakouts. Never quit making this stuff.
I really loved the packaging & that it was a pump bottle.
Pros: It smells fantastic, it's creamy, not irritating
Cons: It's hard to get out of the bottle once you've used a lot of it, it's not very cleansing
I'm 24 and just getting over some really bad acne with the help of my dermatologist. I tried this product because it doesn't completely remove all of my natural facial oils (which is a big part of what was causing my acne), it just lightly cleanses and moisturizes. My skin always feels so soft and I personally don't need an additional moisturizer when I use this product.
I have used this cleanser for a long time. I do not like the new formula, as it was too drying. I don't know why the ingredients were changed, unless it was to save money. I will not repurchase the new formula.
Not a face wash. It's a cream cleanser that does not foam up. Didn't clean my face very well. A lot is on my toner cotton ball after washing. It does, however, keep skin feeling very soft and not tight feeling!
This is an awesome cleanser for combination/ acne prone skin. Although I like the formula slightly better before it was updated along with bottle graphics, it still works great. I'm 15 and this is perfect because it keeps acne in check, while still being gentle on my sensitive skin, I LOVE Alba Botanica, keep making your high quality all natural skin care products!
Aged 48, fair, sensitive, combination skin. This cleanser is the best I have ever tried. It has a lovely creamy texture with a naturally calming and gentle effect on my skin. I no longer have breakouts, it has stopped redness and makes my skin look smooth, and silky. It also balances out my skin and even seems to put moisture back in. I can’t rave enough about it. Don’t waste your money on expensive brands. I highly recommend this product.
It feels decadent, like a facial at a spa. Smells amazing. My skin looks great :) I love it and am a Alba Botanica convert! I love the entire Hawaiian product line.
