I love the smell of this! It is kind of like a mix of coffee and some kind of delicious baked good! I usually stick to fruity scents, but this one caught my attention. It is a good consistency that rubs in easily and doesn't feel greasy and soothes after-sun skin. I wouldn't use it after a sun burn, but it does feel great on slightly pinkened/tanned skin. The only thing that is not perfect is the price...it's rather spendy. But, I'll watch for it when it is on sale!

I used this lotion a few summers ago when I picked it up at a health food store. It worked pretty well, so I thought I might buy it again. The formula has changed. It didn't contain parabens the last time I bought it, at least I don't think so. I don't see how you can call a product natural when it contains parabens, that irritates me. Even mainstream brands are eliminating parabens now.

Didn't work as well as I had hoped

Comments about Alba Botanica Hawaiian After-Sun Lotion, Replenishing Kona Coffee, 8.5 fl oz:

I hoped this after sun lotion was the one I had been searching for... it was not. It smells decent but after it had been on for awhile, it left my skin feeling drier than before I applied it. I decided not to use it any more and went back to my regular lotion that I use in and out of the sun. I gave it 3 stars because it's not horrible, it simply didn't work for my skin.

        simply awesome, it is the best product out there since the neutrogena after sun that is no longer available. it is the real deal for an after sun lotion that makes your skin retain the sun without peeling.

          Comments about Alba Botanica Hawaiian After-Sun Lotion, Replenishing Kona Coffee, 8.5 fl oz:

          I bought this originally for its intended purpose on vacation, as an after-sun lotion. But once I used it, I loved it and now I use it every day as a body lotion. I LOVE the scent. It's delicious but not overpowering. I love the consistency, thick but rubs in well. A little goes a long way. And the price is great. I was using far more expensive firming lotions and while all of these products offer questionable results, if there are firming benefits to this, great, but that's secondary now to how much I love it as a regular long-lasting body lotion.

          good product

          Comments about Alba Botanica Hawaiian After-Sun Lotion, Replenishing Kona Coffee, 8.5 fl oz:

          I use this in the summer as as the caffeine makes it a good firming lotion for me. The lotion also gives a nice sheen to my arms and legs. My one gripe is that half-way through the bottle it's hard to get the lotion out; I have to sit it on the cap to get the last half of the bottle to dispense. Lovely scent too.

          Comments about Alba Botanica Hawaiian After-Sun Lotion, Replenishing Kona Coffee, 8.5 fl oz:

          It is wonderful that the product is natural and earth-friendly but I am not sure how well it works AND it's smell is SO STRONG that it literally makes me sick. It smells like caramel which could be nice if that's your thing, but even so, its smell is way, way too strong! I like the brand and was surprised to see a product of theirs discounted 25% but I suppose this may be one reason why sales aren't going too well and they need the discount. I moved to a hot, sunny country and bought 3 or 4 of these before I left and now I don't know how to even finish the first bottle!
