Alba Un-Petroleum Multi-Purpose Jelly

If you need a THICK moisturizer and shy away from parabens, this is the product for you!

I had never heard of this product until I read Kandee Johnson’s blog about flawless skin. As soon as she mentioned the product, I knew I had to have it, and I am so glad that I ordered it :)

I have mentioned before that I have rosacea. If you have rosacea, you know that your skin blisters, peels, and burns. I also have extremely dry skin. This product is a godsend! It is a little too thick to put on in the morning, so I apply it at night and wake up with super soft skin. It is also an AMAZING makeup remover! I have some super waterproof and long-lasting products, and this gets it all off while moisturizing at the same time!

It not only works wonders for your face, but for your hair and body! If my hair is feeling especially dry, I will rub a little into my hair to seal the ends. I also cannot stress how much I love smoothing it on my legs after shaving! I feel like it prolongs the smoothness, although I could just be imagining things.

There is one downside to this product, however: it is a very, VERY thick oil, and it is difficult to apply smoothly. I feel like I am always putting on far too much, which leaves me feeling greasy until it soaks in (then it is great!). To remedy this, I have found it works best if you run it under hot water to sort of loosen it up, and then apply it to wet skin. You still have to kind of rub it around to get it all even, but oh well—it is totally worth it!

I love that this product is free of paraffin, petrolatum, parabens, mineral oil, and artificial fragrance! And again, with all products like this, be sure to watch the expiration date (this lasts for six months).

I love this so much, but because of the application issues, I can only give it four stars (although I will always buy it!)
