This is a great multi-purpose lotion...first recommended to me my an esthetician and massage therapist. It goes on thin and absorbs quickly; you may not think it will do much...trust me, it does. Some might think it has a strong scent, kind of sweet and flowery. I'm sensitive to fragrance and have sinus stuffiness with many but this doesn't seem to bother me. I've received compliments on the fragrance that lingers through the day. I've used this lotion for over 4 years now and will always have it on hand.

Alba Botanica Very Emollient Body Lotion, Maximum Dry Skin Formula is made for people with average skin types. If you have dry, sensitive skin or eczema, you'll find this lotion to not be very effective. The botanical flowery smell is overpowering and the lotion is on the runny side for a "maximum dry skin formula" product. I have senstive skin and eczema and this product makes me break out in little red bumps.

      Comments about Alba Botanica Very Emollient Body Lotion, Maximum Dry Skin Formula, 12 fl oz:

      Nice lotion. It smells light and pretty, and goes on very smoothly and absorbs quickly. However, a few hours later, I see the dryness come back to my skin. So for a light moisturizer, it's very nice. But for something that promotes helping very dry skin, I guess I couldn't recommend it. I am trying to transition to natural products, but for really super dry skin, I'd have to only recommend the Lubriderm Oatmeal lotion.

          I use this head-to-toe. It is thin, so it spreads all over easily, has nice, light scent, but absorbs well--no sticky feeling like my former fave, Dove ProAge. Natural ingredients, too. I am stocking-up!!!

          Comments about Alba Botanica Very Emollient Body Lotion, Maximum Dry Skin Formula, 12 fl oz:

          I've tried literally dozens of lotions over the years, and this is by far the best I've ever used. My skin is very sensitive and I can't use most drugstore brand lotions since they contain mineral oil or synthetic moisturizers. The main emollient in Alba's product is sweet almond oil, which absorbs quickly and completely. The alpha hydroxy acids are an added bonus and have truly made a difference in my skin's texture. Only a few days after I began using it, my dry skin was gone and my skin was smoother than it's been since I was a teenager (and I'm now 31). The consistency is light and smooth, not heavy and gloppy like some lotions, so it absorbs quickly. Some others have reported they don't like the smell, but I like it - it's a sensual jasmine aroma (to me, anyways) that dissipates pretty fast after application.

          I have very sensitive skin and am prone to eczema "break outs". This is a great lotion, doesn't irritate my skin and works pretty well in the moisture department. Maybe I'm looking for the miracle lotion and will never find it, but this is pretty close to it and I'll continue to use this and will try the other Alba lotion products.

          Comments about Alba Botanica Very Emollient Body Lotion, Maximum Dry Skin Formula, 12 fl oz:

          I bought this lotion to use during winter here in AZ where it gets very, very dry. I used it for about a month and my scaly dry legs went away, but I've never been much of a apply-it-daily-body-lotion person so I stopped. A few months ago I started using it on my face and neck nightly and I noticed it was smoother, younger, supple and had less break outs. I use it at night so it can repair my skin from free-radicals it was exposed to during the day and help cell turn over. The only thing I don't like is the strong lavender scent. Keep in a cool, dry place to prevent it from going rancid, since Alba is made from organic materials that tends to happen if it comes in contact with heat.

          I love Alba with a passion (natural/organic, cruelty-free, what's not to love?) This is my favorite of their lotions...I've been using it for a year now. It absorbs quickly and isn't greasy, it makes my skin baby soft, and I love the smell. It's natural, light, and botanical; like gardenia.
