People with dry and sensitive skin beware - this 2% salicylic acid cleanser is quite strong, and the relatively high acid content may burn your skin and leave it very irritated. In my case however, my skin is so oily I don't have a T-Zone... but an O-Zone! Oil all over, even on my eyelids. Thankfully, people with oily skin tend to be less sensitive to actives (although not in all cases, so be careful), so at least we can tolerate products such as this to combat our over-production of sebum, and even get quicker results. I've been using this cleanser for a week now as a replacement for another much milder cleanser - the CeraVe SA Soothing Cleanser (highly recommended for sensitive skin! very gentle), but I love the higher SA percentage in this one. I definitely feel it exfoliates my skin and cleanses my clogged pores much better! With the CeraVe one, I sometimes even had to use it more than once to really get a smooth, clean skin. With this one, one wash without any tools does the job.
Iam in 30es age..I have oily skin with pigmentation and pimples and i used this wash for 2 monthes and reordered it again
It is the best face wash I've used in my life…very good quality for fair price and enough size
When I started using it, no acne appeared on my face because it contains 2% salasylic acid
It is really working against acne
It cleans the face leaving a mint smell and refreshing feeling
My face return young
And does not cause drying or sensitivity
Thanx iherb…🌹🌹….plz like if my comment helps
Bought this with no expectations, but the result is such a pleasant surprise! My skin looked and felt instantly better after the first use. Have been having acne issues for a while and this works a lot better than the PanOxyl wash, or the Paula’s Choice exfoliant (which breaks me out). I use this once a day and it doesn’t dry out my skin either. Extremely satisfied and will buy more from this brand again!
I have noticed a dramatic change since I started using this facial wash and I highly recommend it. However, if you really wish to keep your face acne free, using this facial wash is not enough. You need to stop eating dairy products in order to enjoy the clear skin you always wanted. Try abstinence from dairy products for one month, combined with using Alba Botanica’s wash, and I promise you that you will be amazed from the results.
I wanted a gentle salicilyc acid-based cleanser and I definitely for it with this! I use this wash either at the end of the day after a lot of activity or as my regular cleanser when I'm close to my period/having breakouts.
It has a light scent that is fresh and pleasant. Leaves my skin feeling clean but not super tight or stripped. Must follow up with moisture, but that's standard especially with deep cleansers. I only need a pea-sized and it lathers up beautifully. Bought this almost a year ago and I'm just running out now--and repurchasing !
(give my review a like if it was helpful please :)
I love love love this facial wash. I’m 38 YO, I sweat a lot due to medical condition and I work out a lot, have dry skin that’s prone to pimples in specific areas such as the T on my face, my bottom and in other areas where tight clothes and sweat mix.
I used the product twice a day, during each shower. It has a fresh-minty scent. In addition to my face, I use a bit of it mixed with my regular soap on my entire body. On acne prone areas such as my bottom I used it directly just like on my face.
After every wash, I follow and complete the treatment with an atopic product. The results were completely wonderful and I was highly satisfied. My skin really cleared up and now feels really smooth.
I just placed a second order for this product because it was so helpful z
Excellent facial soap! Deep cleanses the pores. Reduced the appearance of blackheads on my nose and chin. Dries the face so recommends using once / twice a week and not every day. Moisturizer should also be applied after use. Highly recommend for anyone suffering from acne. If you liked my review I would love for you to click Like :)
I bought this after deciding that I wanted to start a new skin care regime. I've always washed my face, and used toners and makeup, but recently decided I needed to start moisturizing and discontinue to the use of very strong hydrogen peroxide cleansers in order to let my face be at it's best. I've suffered from acne for years. I am now 32 yrs old and believe a lot of it was caused by my poor knowledge of how to cleanse. I started out double cleansing with the Boscia oil cleanser and bought this as my second cleanse. I've used the alba acnedote peel mask before and liked that the ingredients in the alba line are botanical and natural. This has a very light scent that's hard to define, it's definitely not strong and maybe can be described as a bright, citrus scent. It's a thin, runny cleanser and did arrive from Amazon with some of it leaking and coating the outside but I just rinsed it and that was that. This does foam up, which I love, and does an effective job at removing makeup and oil without being harsh. It's NOT supposed to be eaten, but while washing if a bit gets on your lips which tends to happen, it tastes like citrus. Which tells me it does have a high content of botanical plant based ingredients. Of course I didn't mean to taste it but there ya go. I have it on auto delivery once per month now because it takes me about a month to use up and I'm using this as my regular cleanser now. You must needn't use a lot and sometimes too much comes out of the bottle but if you're aware before using it that can be avoided. My new go to! My face has cleared up considerably using the ordinary squalane cleanser as the first cleanse, the alba as the second, followed by the ordinary glycolic acid toner, and topped off with a bit of the ordinary moisturizing factors. I do not use a sunscreen and i know that will horrify most skincare junkies but there is a sunscreen in my foundation and I wear it everyday. I still have a long way to go with my skincare routine and perfecting it but the alba is here to stay. My face literally feels squeaky clean but not taut and dried out from harsh ingredients. Love this
it's been a week now since i got the product and i can only say that my face breaths evry time i use it
the smell is good texture as well
my skin is bit sensitive and it works for me so well
i'm using it twice a day and fy face got brighter
is a good product that i recommend for daily morning use. it keeps your skin clean from acne if you use it in regular base. The smell is neutral with out any perfume.
Does not try your skin. When you used it leave in on your skin for a minute or two and after wash it with water preferable cold
