Default Anyone Use Alba Botanica Products?

I just purchased
Alba Botanica Hawaiian Facial Wash Coconut Milk
and
Alba Botanica Hawaiian Facial Mask Papaya Enzyme

Has anyone used these products before? I don't wear makeup but I have noticed my forehead is breaking out and I wanted a mild facial cleanser and mask to use since my Olay regenerist daily regenerating cleanser is burning my skin.

Are alba products any good?

Do you know of any other good organic/natural mild skin care products?

I love the alba products! I would recommend the face washes. They leave your skin feeling very fresh and clean. I love these product and so will you

I used the face wash you mentioned. Broke me out, but I'm prone. My husband used the rest of the bottle with no problems (he's not prone).

I did love the smell, even though I generally hate scented things.

I visited the spa for a facial & the aesthetician (sp?) Was impressed with my alba results. She recommended using my pineapple enzyme mask twice a week this winter to help prevent dry skin. So Alba is definitely worth it.

I use the oil free moisturizer, it's pretty good.

I use the pineapple facial mask. I like it quite a bit. It is better than the Kieh;'s mask of similar name for about 1/3 the price.
