Product:OH MY CHEESECAKES!!! where do I begin, ok so I spotted this at
walmart on clearance for 7.99 and I still had not found a good cruelty free
replacement for my St. Ives Apricot Scrub, so I knew that
Alba Botanica was
leaping Bunny approved so I bought it.

Smelling products for me is a must so I smelled this in store and the
first thing I thought
of was henna tattoo( henna paste) and orange and
sandalwood, so after reading the ingredie
nts on the website there is
orange peel oil, and bergamot, the latter being one of my favor
ite notes
in perfumes. I absolutely love the way this smells, and if you are sensitive
to smells,
I would definitely smell this before purchasing.

*The product has a thinner consistency then the St. Ives scrub,
   this scrub serves a dual purpose for those bacne and facial acne as well.
*My main problem is the occasional pimples from stress, bad eating habits
  or mother nature paying me a visit lol.

*So the first time using this was the day of purchase didn't use it the second day,
  so the third day I noticed the pimple was smaller so I rubbed the scrub into
  the pimple a bit more, and the fifth day the pimple was just about gone which
  was awesome.

*It does tingle which is the peppermint oil working, I like to put this on after
  I apply my conditioner, and leave it on no longer than 10 minutes,( if you have
  sensitive skin no longer than 5) I like to leave it on a bit longer so the product has

  time to get in there and do what it's got to do lol.
*I use this 3 times a week and I use it daily whenever I get a pimple and it gets
  rid of pimples with in 3-4 days.

*I moisturize more when I use it daily, this is all natural and doesn't contain harsh
  chemicals like the St. Ives scrub does, what sold me on this was the maximum

  strength part of the product.
*It lathers, but not a lot, which is a good thing.
*My husband loves this, he has bacne and it helps keep it under control, and uses
  it 3 times a week.

Overall this product is amazing, if you have allergies to walnuts I would stay away, since the scrub part of this is crushed walnut shells, and do a test spot on your hand, I have nothing but the best things to say about this product, Thankies to Alba Botanica for making not only an awesome product but a cruelty free product as well...
Thankies for reading
