Alba Botanica Good & Clean Gentle Acne Wash
Hot weather means more oil and often acne flare ups. If you have acne , it can get worse . I certainly get so much oilier in the T Zone.
New to the scene and 95% natural to boot is the Good & Clean line from Alba Botanica. Because I do love a good cleanser, I took it for a test wash.
Good & Clean uses 2 % salicyclic acid to help wipe out the oilies and clear up blackheads while also having Alba Botanica's Fruit Acid Detox Fusion - 10 alpha hydroxy rich botanical exctracts of grapefruit, apple, orange, lemon, grape and more.
The cleanser does a great job of getting skin clean including removing most makeup but it doesn't leave my skin feeling dry after or tight. So it feels like it doesn't strip skin and that's good. It lathers up lightly ( no sulaftes here) and has a nice citrus scent.
Thumbs up for a natural, vegetarian cleanser that gets the job done.
Within the Good & Clean range there is also a Foam Cleanser, Toxin Release Scrub and Purifying Mini Peel.
Alba Botanica Good & Clean Gentle Acne Wash is $ 9 and available at natural food stores, Whole Foods, Target and Wal Mart and www.albabotanica.com
