Alba Pineapple Enzyme Facial Scrub

Brand: Alba Botanica

Product: Pineapple Enzyme Facial Scrub

Price: $12.95

Link To Product: Alba Botanica 

What It Does: This gentle cleaner combines effective fruit enzymes and buffing granules for deep-cleansing without drying. Maintains your skin's delicate pH while infusing it with healing moisture.

Scent: Very mild fruit scent -- more citrus-y and not so much pineapple-y

Texture: light and grainy

Review:  I'm not particularly impressed with this scrub.  It falls somewhere between a cleanser and an actual scrub.  It's just too gentle for a scrub but the good thing is you could probably use this daily -- I would say it's better for maintenance scrubbing in between your real scrubs.  At the very least I expected a delicious pineapple scent but it smells more lemony and even almost pine-sol-y.  The ingredients sound nice -- pineapple enzymes and organic aloe vera -- and I'm sure it's all good for you but for a $13 scrub I expected a little better performance.
