The Results I used this product for about 6 weeks. I had vowed to switch to a moisturizer containing SPF because I wanted to prevent sun damage and fight aging ( I’m not getting any younger 😉 ). I purchased Alba Botanica Even Advanced Sea Moss Moisturizer for between $10 – $15 on iHerb.com, which is a pretty good price for a moisturizer containing natural ingredients and SPF 15. It’s lightweight, non-greasy, and a little goes a long way. It also has a surprisingly pleasant yet faint smell to it. I knew right away that it was something that would not break me out or give me an adverse reaction. It hasn’t done much for my dark spots though. I tried Alba Hawaiian Aloe and Green Tea Moisturizer a few years ago, and it would sting my skin (to the point I thought I may be allergic) but left me with a bright, clear complexion. The verdict? I love that with Alba, most of their ingredients are certified organic. I also love that their products are relatively affordable and can be found in most health food stores. I think Alba’s Sea Moss Moisturizer is great for if you’re looking for a light everyday moisturizer. I don’t think it’s strong enough to transform any skin conditions. If you are looking to fade dark marks, look for a product containing glycolic acid or even fruit derived acids (eg. lemon, grapefruit, raw apple cider vinegar, etc.).
