Hey girls, do you still remember my previous posts on Alba Botanica skincare and hair care?
My first review on this brand of skincare can be found here: lianmeiting.blogspot.com/2015/04/alba-botanica.html
& here is the post on their hair care range: lianmeiting.blogspot.com/2015/06/alba-botanica-hair-care.html
This drug store brand is really affordable and has a wide range of skincare and hair care products to cater to everyone with different needs. I’ve almost finished using all the items that was sent to me except for a few shampoos that doesn’t suit my scalp conditions but the rest of the items have given me nothing but amazing results!
Today, I want to share with you on the 2 favorite products of mine from their skincare line that I’ve actually used up and repurchased once before they sent me these 2 items again for a 2nd review.
*Did you know that recently, Alba Botanica was awarded the “Best New Botanical Skin and Hair Care” award for Watsons’ Health, Wellness & Beauty Award 2015.*
The first will be the Hawaiian Facial Mask – Pore-Fecting Papaya Enzyme.
This is similar to a pore clearing mask just that it is very mild and gentle on the skin. It is perfect for those with sensitive skin because it does not give you any tingling sensation or dry out the skin too much like those clay masks in the market.
It comes in this gel-like texture and it spreads on the skin really easily.
One of my favorite benefits of using this facial mask is that it removes flaky dead skin and brightens up my skin! That is because the papaya and pineapple enzymes gently loosen and dissolve dull skin cells and impurities.
All I needed to do is to spread it all over my skin, wait for 5-8 minutes & wash it off with warm water.
No need to tug at my skin or use any abrasive scrubs.
It has a cooling effect on my skin and it just feels so comfortable and calming.
I also use this as a spot treatment whenever I have a huge annoying pimple growing out of nowhere.
It significantly reduces the size of the pimple and the redness after use.
The next item is the Hawaiian Oil Free Moisturizer – Refining Aloe & Green tea.
This moisturizer is more towards the cream type but it is surprisingly pretty light! It is also oil free as mentioned and that means it will not clog your pores at all. In my opinion, it is beneficial for people with drier skin conditions and I would recommend it to those who have pretty dehydrated skin like me. But I’ve also read reviews of those who have oily skin and suffer from acne that love this product and have been using it for a long time too!
I usually use this amount on my face and my neck before bed. I do use this during day time too but not on days when I run about outdoors, my skin may tend to look a little shiny by the end of the day.
Also, it contains Aloe, green tea, gotu kola and cucumber extracts that provides antioxidant benefits, YAY!
My makeup application goes on really smooth after using this moisturizer, my face powder seems to sit perfectly on my skin and I really like that.
Besides those 2 highly raved products, here are others from their Hawaiian skincare range too!
The Hawaiian Facial Cleanser – Pore purifying pineapple enzyme,
The Hawaiian Facial Toner – Complexion balancing hibiscus,
The Hawaiian Facial Scrub – Pore purifying pineapple enzyme.
All Alba Botanica products can be found at Watsons and Robinsons!!
Another reason why I’m so sold onto this brand is because they use 100% Vegetarian ingredients, they are pH balanced and Alba botanic does not do Animal testing or uses artificial colors, synthetic fragrances, parabens and more.
So I am always able to use the products with a peaceful mind knowing that there isn’t any harsh chemicals content in them.
“We recognise the need to be good stewards of all natural resources. So we try to do beautiful by reducing our environmental impact in everything we do as a business, from the field to the final product.
Together we can help to preserve and heal the planet, now and for future generations, because we truly believe that everyone deserves their place in the sun.”
