Hi lovelies!  Today, I wanted to review the Alba Botanica Even Advanced, day cream and night cream.  I purchased my creams from CVS for about $10 each.  One of the main reasons I wanted to try Alba Botanica Advanced Even, day cream and night cream, was due to their natural ingredients.  After all, the Alba Botanica Advanced Even are 100% Vegetarian and does not do Animal Testing, or have Artificial Colors, Parabens, Phthalates, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or Sodium Myreth Sulfate!

A little bit about the Alba Botanica Day Cream

“This botanically powerful Marine Complex, rich in nourishing lipids, stimulates cell regeneration to reduce the appearance of blotchiness for a more uniform skin tone. Dull, sleepy skin becomes fresh, even and bright in just two weeks.* It’s the wake-up call your skin has been waiting for. Wears well under make-up. Hypo-allergenic. ”

A little bit about the Alba Botanica Night Cream
“This little gem works the night shift to help break up uneven pigmentation and dull spots for a bright morning complexion. When used nightly, this botanically powerful Marine Complex, enriched with DMAE, stimulates cell regeneration to reduce discoloration after 2 weeks* while it plumps skin with continuous moisture. Potent antioxidant-packed Thioctic Acid helps minimize the effects of sun, stress and time. Sleep on it for more clarity in the morning. Hypo-allergenic.” (www.Albabotanica.com)

My Review:

I was a little disappointed by the Alba Botanica Even Advanced.  The night cream was a tad better  than the day cream, but not significantly. I guess for the price, I should not have expected much. Both the  Night cream and day cream were lacking in their moisturizing effects. Over all I saw no difference in the texture and suppleness of my skin. My skin tends to be on the dryer side, therefore a good moisturizer and  Night cream is a must. The Alba Botanica Even Avanced did not do a good job plumping my skin or creating a brighter complexion as described.  In order to get the most out of the night cream and day cream, I had to add a few drops of my favorite natural oil like Argan oil or vitamin E oil  to enhance the moisturizing properties of the cream. The Alba Botanica Even Advanced is all natural, without preservatives or harsh chemicals,  which is a big plus. Maybe for some people, these products will have different results, but for my dry skin, I needed more moisturizing properties.
