Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:natural ingredients, oil-free, soft skin
Cons:pricey for a drugstore moisturizer
The Bottom Line: This has been gentle on my skin and I like the natural ingredients. I'll buy it again.
I have been trying to change some of my facial skin care products to more natural products. When I needed new moisturizer I ended up purchasing Alba Aloe & Green Tea Oil Free Moisturizer. I have been using it in the morning for about five months.

The 3 ounce jar of Alba Aloe & Green Tea Oil Free Moisturizer is made of certified organic aloe vera and green tea antioxidants. The combination of ingredients is said to "absorb quickly to help replenish and protect skin against dehydration for a soft, healthy, luminous complexion". The box indicates that it is gentle for all skin types.
It is a white lotion with a very mild floral fragrance. I can smell the scent while in the jar, but I don't notice it at all once applied to my skin. This moisturizer is a bit thinner in texture than other facial lotions that I have used. However it feels very silky as I smooth it across my face and will absorb quickly. A little bit goes a long way - I have only used about half the jar in the five months I have been using the moisturizer.
I have a tendency to break out, but since I have started using Alba Aloe & Green Tea Oil Free Moisturizer, I have had few and milder breakouts. The moisturizer keeps my skin feeling very soft. We had a very cold, snowy winter here, but I haven't had any problems with dry or tight feeling skin.
I think I paid about $17 at CVS for this Alba moisturizer. That is on the more expensive side for a drugstore skin care product, but the jar does contain 3 ounces of product. Many of the comparably priced jarred facial lotions only contain 1 - 2 ounces, so this jar gives you a little bit more for the money.
I have enjoyed using Alba Aloe & Green Tea Oil Free Moisturizer and will likely purchase it, and probably other Alba products, again.
