I have extremely sensitive skin and I love this lotion. I've applied this right out of the shower and it is great...even after just shaving. At first it seems like it doesn't absorb very well, but give it a few minutes. Your skin will be silky soft. This lotion costs a bit more but it is the only lotion I will buy. It lasts longer because you don't need very much and it is well worth it!

I am glad to see others have had the same problem! I've used this product for years with no problems, recommeded it to others. Then earlier this year they must have changed the product. It smelled different and made me break out in a rash! I returned it to the store where I bought it before Alba got back to me.... glad I didn't wait around for their response.

This WAS the best lotion! And I have very sensitive, dry skin.

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

This is a nice but fairly lightweight body lotion. It's good if you want something that absorbs quickly and isn't heavy or greasy. If you have very dry skin or want longer-lasting coverage, you probably want something else. For those who are scent-sensitive (like me), it IS truly unscented yet doesn't smell bad. (If you like perfume-y products, look elsewhere!)

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

    I have been using this product for years and I love it. I use it all over by body every morning and after every shower. I also use it on my feet at bedtime and after washing my hands during the day. I have dry skin and this lotion keeps my skin soft, smooth and comfortable. Friends and relatives routinely comment on how soft my skin is. Even my feet are smooth.

      Almost perfect. We buy unscented and add a fragrance.
      It is lasting and efficient, especially in cold dry weather.

      Causes skin to dry up more

      Pros

        Cons

        • Doesn't Absorb Well
        • Leaves Skin Drier
        • Not Long-Lasting
        • Washes Off Very Easily

        Best Uses

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

          Unlike other "fragrance-free" moisturizers, this one does not smell at all.

          However, it is near useless as a mositurizer. It stays on the skin as a silky layer and washes out with even a few drops of water. Even that might be tolerable but for the worst thing about this:

          It seems to pull moisture out of the body, and leaves your skin more dry in the long run.

          Stay away from this product. I was using Cetaphil before this - and it was a good option for light moisturizing.

            I put lotion all over my body every morning and after every shower/bath. I also moisturize feet at bedtime and hands from time to time. I have dry skin, but people regularly comment to me about how soft my skin is. Morning and night application to my feet keeps them beautiful and free of rough skin that most people get on their feet. I have been using this lotion for years and I love it. I also don't like smelly lotions and this is unscented, though alba offers scented lotions as well.

                  Fragrance Free is very important in this household, so this lotion is one of my go-to's. It is natural, works very well as a daily body moisturizer, plus can be effectively used when I need a fragrance free massage lotion.
                  Very thankful to have found this product.

                    I have been using this moisturizer for years now. I just love it. It's great to find a natural, healthier product that works so well. The lotion is decently lightweight, but in the summer I dilute it with equal parts water to make it even lighter. I also like that it is unscented, so it does not interfere with my fragrance. I even use this moisturizer on my face. I have very oily, acne-prone skin and I usually wouldn't dare to try a body moisturizer on my face, but I used this one out of desperation one winter because I was out my usual face lotion and I've been using it on my face ever since. It did not irritate or cause any blackheads/breakouts at all. It ends up saving me a lot of money not having to buy a separate moisturizer for my face.

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

                      I use this product year-round. I have allergies and sensitive skin and it's the only product I've found that always feels great on my skin. I am 74 years old with somewhat dry skin and it's also a great moisturizer for my face--not too heavy or cloying, like a lot of facial products.
                      I didn't like the scent at first, but it's very subtle and I've gotten used to it. Anyway, it disappears after a few minutes.
