My husband has rather bad eczema and since using this lotion it has almost gone away completely. My skin is very sensitive. In the winter it dries out so bad that my hands will crack and bleed. I have tried so many different lotions from prescription to over the counter. Every single product that I have tried makes my hands feel like they are on fire. The moment I put this on my hands they didn't hurt. There was no pain at all. After the second application my hands felt soft and smooth with no chapping at all. The smell is very light and pleasant. I also use it on both my sons after bath time.

I ordered the trial size of this moisturizer before taking the plunge to buy full size and am I glad I did! The moisturizing properties of this lotion are not very good at all for dry skin. It did not do the job for me as a winter moisturizer. The scent reminds me of cheap suntan lotion, which really bothered me throughout the day. Guess it's back to the hunt for a truly moisturizing natural body lotion which has a pleasant scent.

    I love this lotion! The original scent smells great without being too strong, so you can mix it with a scented lotion or perfume. It moisturizes really well without being greasy, keeps your skin soft all day. My new favorite daily lotion.

    New Formulation Smells Bad

        Comments about Alba Botanica Very Emollient Body Lotion, Original, 12 fl oz:

        I had used this product for years and loved it. The new formulation is not an improvement. It smells bad - so bad it gives me a head ache - and is too thick going on. They ruined a good product in my opinion. I won't be buying it again and will have to throw away the three new bottles I bought as each time I try to put it on, tbe smell is too much.

          Cons

          • Bad Smell

            Comments about Alba Botanica Very Emollient Body Lotion, Original, 12 fl oz:

            I used to buy the extra large pump bottles of this moisturizer and LOVED how nicely it soaked into my skin, leaving behind a very mild but pleasant smell. Sadly, the new owners "improved" the formula - probably to save money. My search for a new body lotion begins again...

                  I love this moisturizer. It has all the qualities that I look for: moisturizes well, non-greasy, smells great, and is chemical free. Because it is non-greasy, the moisturizing properties don't last all day and usually I have to apply in the morning and then again at night. However, I much prefer reapplying twice a day rather than having a greasy lotion.

                  The ORIGINAL scent smells horrible. It smells like cheap floral soap. Definitely buy the Fragrance free. This lotion is worth IS the money, if you buy the fragrance free. I usually like a light scent in my lotions, but not this! Works great for massage

                  Wonderful texture, actually moisturizes and is good for you too. I wanted something natural and tried Burts Bees and wasn't impressed. They had cute packaging but every one of their lotions smelled bad or didn't work. This lotion and the unscented version are the only ones I buy anymore. They work on the worst chapped, dry skin and it's so sensitive, I can use it on my very pick face daily too, no acne, no irritation.

                    This is my absolute favorite lotion! I've been using it forever and it's not too heavy or too perfumey, which I like. It also has lots of natural ingredients and it works even on my itchy dry winter skin! THE BEST.
