    I really like this thick cream, but it has one significant draw back described below.

    It does a fabulous job mouisturizing dry skin! The best very rich cream I've found. It is a little thinner/lighter in consistency than many body butters, so it spreads and abosorbs more easily. Still it is quite heavy, and I tend to use it on very dry spots in winter (eg. hands) and to moisturize after shaving my legs. It does a great job calming and moisturizing skin after shaving. In addition, it smells great, which is a big part of what keeps me going back. The smell is not too sweet or fruity. it is rich, nutty, a bit caramely, and sensual.

    HOWEVER: The product seems to be very inconsistent. I've been buying it for years and I occasionally get versions where the product smells different (worse!) and has a different texture. At first I thought it had been reformulated, but then I tried it again and it was back to its wonderful original state. Next jar: smelled weird. Note, these off-smelling ones do not smell rancid -- like they're old. It's as if they got the frangance mix wrong or the ingredients vary. So I think that the reviewers who state it smells sickly sweet like candy have gotten a bad batch.

    If it weren't for this inconsistency I would easily give it 5 stars. So I still suggest giving it a try!

    I used to love this cream, but now they added a caramel scent and the scent is overwhelming and unpleasant. It used to have a very nice, light nut smell, and now it has that artificial candy smell. I was disappointed, because this was a favorite of ours.

      Comments about Alba Botanica Hawaiian Body Cream, Deep Moisturizing Kukui Nut, 6.5 oz:

      I suffered with dry patches on my legs for several years. The Drs had me lathering up with eucerin and other lotions; nothing seemed to help, and several made it worse. I tried this on a whim once & have been using it religiously ever since. It's all natural, which I love. No petroleum base. I personally love the smell. Nothing perfume-y; all natural mild cocoa butter scent. Really rich & thick; a little goes a long way.

      Comments about Alba Botanica Hawaiian Body Cream, Deep Moisturizing Kukui Nut, 6.5 oz:

      I got this for my pregnant belly but barely use it because I smell like a creme brulee meets tiramisu. It has a very strong smell, that I personally like but my husband doesn't. Seems like a good product, but if you do not like smelling strongly of something (I very rarely wear perfume), then perhaps this product isn't for you.

          Very nice lotion with good ingredients. I gave it 3 stars because of the smell. While it's pleasant, it's VERY strong. My husband described it as a "vanilla caramel sundae." And the smell stays with you all day. Would be near perfect if the smell were less strong.

            I had this cream shipped to my husband's 97-year-old mother, who is bedridden and under hospice care. She finds this product helpful in coping with her chronic skin issues and definitely likes the scent.

              I love this body cream. I put it on before I go to bed. It is so thick and luxurious and it smells fabulous. The only problem is my dogs love it just as much. They like to lick it off me and I even caught one with his face in the jar one night! Good thing it's organic and vegetarian ;)

                  This stuff is amazing. I use it everyday after the shower and before bedtime. My boyfriend LOVES it. I put it on, and he goes crazy for me. This scent blows my mind. However, I think this product is a little too pricey for the amount you get.

                    This is a wonderful, creamy, rich body moisturizer that absorbs quickly and lasts for a long time. I use it primarily after showering on my feet and it has made such a difference. The scent is warm and delicious but not at all overpowering. It equals the boutique and department store moisturizers I own, and is really more moisturizing than many of them. This is not oil-free, so it can be greasy, but I consider this a benefit.
