Alba Botanica® Natural Acnedote Oil Control Lotion -- 2 fl oz
Good for Acne prone skin
I am on my second tube of this. I have oily, acne prone skin, and wanted something without all the harsh chemicals found in other acne treatments (besides the Salicylic Acid). Prior to this I was paying a lot more for the Aveda acne lotion. This lotion works just as well, if not better. It is a great base under my mineral makeup and does not feel oily or heavy, and gives my skin the moisture it needs without contributing to acne breakouts. Watch when you squeeze the tube though, it comes out fast and you may end up with more than you wanted. Will continue to use!

Using moisturizers on my face has always made me hesitant. I have very oily skin and in my mind adding more moisture just didn't make sense. However I started noticing that the more dry and tight my skin was after washing the more oil my face produced to compensate. So in search of balance I tried this product. This stuff is so great, I can go about 6 hours before I need to blot my face for excess oil. This doesn't stop the oil but like the name says it does help control it. I've been using this product for about 2 weeks and my skin is clearer and more balanced than it has ever been.

Even at age 59, I have oily skin and mild breakouts - though now that I found this, I don't expect that to be an issue anymore! Item works as described. It has a flip top cap (good) but even with that the lotion comes out really quickly - so be careful! Good stuff. Will definitely reorder. Good product, good price, arrived quickly. I use with Acnedote Astringent (which does not have a flip top - please work on that!).

Life saving product
I always hated putting on lotion because it would contribute to break outs and felt bad on my skin. But with this, it gives me the moisture my skin needs without any greasy feeling and I know it's preventing break outs instead of causing them. I love the way this feels on my skin.

A great find
I used to use Murad and of course, I really love anything from them. But, it is pricey.
Alba makes such great products for the skin, and I have not been disappointed with this one.
For me this was a great find that really targeted acne, has good ingredients, and doesn't cost so much.
I need more moisture in a skin care product, which is the only reason I don't give it a five star rating.
