I’m a big fan of Alba Botanica products, especially their coconut cream natural lip balm (see Beauty and Fashion Tech review). So I had no issues spending my last few bucks of the week on an Alba Botanica TerraGloss.
This all natural, shimmering, mineral color gloss manages to pack a pretty good punch of color. With shea butter and various oils, it moisturizes pretty good as well. I got the color “blaze,” which is a nice brownish red, but in hindsight it isn’t quit the right shade for me since I have cool toned, very pale skin.The gloss has a vanilla flavor and smell. This is obviously a bonus if you like vanilla. Not so much if you don’t. I’m personally not a big vanilla lover, so I probably should have checked out the label before I bought the gloss. Regardless, it is a perfectly respectable all natural moisturizing gloss and it is particularly good for those who love vanilla. I found mine at CVS for around $6.
