The smell, the cleansing ability!
Then they changed to a new look, and that changed the cleanser as well:(,
Very very heavy, greasy! They need to change it back to what it wad!


The new look, new means the cleanser is thick stays on your face does not foam:(

Alba go back to the original product! Your new formula sucks:(!!

Soap free, gentle, clears skin while hydrating



My skin is super sensitive to soaps, fragrances, harsh acne medications, you name it. I usually only use this all natural French skincare line that you can only get through an esthetician but one month I ran out and couldnt order more in time so I tried the Alba Coconut Milk wash. I was really skeptical because I usually associate any skincare products I can buy at the drug store with being bad quality and causing me to break out. When I first tried it, I didn't like the greasy feeling it left on my skin and I was sure it was going to clog my pores but it never did. It's been a great cleanser. No breakouts, no allergic reactions, and my complexion looks so even and hydrated that I only need a little concealer under my eyes and I'm set for makeup! I will caution not to use this to remove eye makeup or cleanse around the eye area. The minty feeling is too intense for this very thin and sensitive area of skin which may be why some people are experiencing dry patches.

Smells great, portable size, isn't rough on the skin, keeps my skin clear


Sometimes leave dead skin on my face(its not an exfoliant)

This stuff is the only stuff that works for me. I have had acne since I was 12. I have used this since I was 17 but then in December I tried Cetaphil after reading a review on here and my skin FREAKED out. I have SUPER sensitive skin, I mean to the point were the nicest moisturizers will make my skin break out. I threw out the Cetaphil and went back to this and in a week my skin was clear again and soft although I do use a dermabrasion cloth after I wash. It takes away the dead skin from the top layer. Even before I put on the Aloe Vera my skin is soft and supple. I would suggest this for anyone who has sensitive skin... Give up the exfoliant for a month and try this...

my skin felt super soft! Started clearing my acne, smells good


dried my skin, expensive (but i got it on sale), messed up my skin

when i first used it worked soo well my skin was getting cleared nand felt soo soft! then a couple of days later there was like a rough patch right below my eye and above my cheek. i was a little freaked out because that part was supposed to be naturally soft, the rough pack stayed and annoyed me, it turned dark brown, then it appeared under my eye brow and on the side of my jaw, when it was gone it had pulled out some skin! i don't like it.

Smells fantastic. Not harsh on sensitive skin.


Ultimately pore clogging and drying.

I bought this cleanser at Ulta for $11 on the basis that it was sulfate free. It smells delightful. I loved the consistency. After a few weeks my skin was clearer and less oily. The disappointment started as I finished my first bottle. I could tell there was a bunch of product in there that the pump couldn't get to, and tried to get it out some other way-- I ended up spending a lot of time getting this very thick cream out of the bottle into a dish. I already had a second bottle to use in the shower, but figured I could use the product out of the dish at the sink. But by then I'd begun to break out. I got a swift round of cystic acne-- this was about two months into using the product. This prompted me to do a little more research into the ingredients, which include coconut oil, which is pretty high in the comedogenic scale. I stopped using it and switched to a castile cleanser which is much gentler. This product seems gentile, but dried me out in the long run.

everything dried me out, which subsequently caused pimples. this leaves my skin moist in preparation for dan's benzoyl gel to the point that i don't need moisturizer afterward. it smells like the most delicious thin mint cookie!


seems pricey ($11) but it lasts for months. there really are no cons.

an absolute joy to use...creamy and expensive-feeling, smells fantastic, and after seven years of hard searching for a face wash that worked, i finally found the best one ever. my skin has been blemish-free, moist and great smelling for months since i began using this product.
