So since I decided to go cruelty free I started looking for substitutes for the products
I used on a daily basis, and I started with my moisturizer. Now I previously used
St. Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Moisturizer, and although it is a good product,
I don't like that it is not cruelty free. So after I bought my moisturizer at
The Vitamin Shoppe (wooot wooot to the vitamin shoppe carrying cruelty free products)
we stopped at Target and as I was checking out the Clearance end caps(I love me some target clearance) I saw this product and honestly I only saw that it was a moisturizer w/ spf 15,
leaping bunny certified and was on clearance for 5.98, and I was sold.....And I am so glad
I bought this, sorry for this little mini-story lol...
So I love that Alba Botanica's line of products have different color packaging for different skin
   types/collections, and since this has sea moss and the packaging is light green, I see what you
   did there Alba Botanica and I like it..
* Tube with a twist off cap, and it's a good size to travel with..
As a moisturizer it works amazeeng, sets into my skin very nicely
*I touch my face and it feels and looks moisturized, doesn't feel greasy after using it.
*It's not a harsh sunscreen, it's natural.
*It evened up my skin tones, one of my co-workers was the first to notice the even skin tone.
*I love the  sunscreen helps prevent uneven skin tone.
*My only Con to this product is it does leave a little bit of shine.
* Makeup doesn't look weird when applied on top of this, and doesn't sit heavy like regular sunscreen.
*A little bit of this goes a long way.
*Miss moisturizer and Mister Sunscreen had a baby, It's not a heavy cream and it's not a runny sunscreen it's a good balance of the
For many the scent of the product is determines if they will buy any product, for me it's a pleasant
  scent, it's not too overpowering and it does fade away after application.
*Doesn't have a heavy sunscreen smell..
*If you are sensitive to smells I would say smell this in store before buying.
I would recommend this for everyone, I absolutely love this product, and I know I will be stocking up on this for the summer....

Thankies so much for reading..
