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.

Not scented but smelly.

By T.K.

Pros

  • Absorbs Quickly

Cons

  • Bad Smell
  • Doesn't Hydrate
  • Not Long-Lasting

Best Uses

  • After Shower/Bath

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

I love having silky skin and using organic products.

Well this got it half right. While very natural and chemical free it didn't do it's job well. It was too lightweight to be really hydrating and the effects didn't last very long at all.

Though there was no artifical scent added there was a smell that made me think it had potentiall gone rancid.

All in all I will pass on repurchasing this product and opt to try one of the many other choices.

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

    I tried this because I am looking for ingredients not harmful to skin such as sulfates, unnatural chemicals etc. This meets those requirements and has added benefits as noted in the writeup. It keeps my skin moist all day without depositing grease on everything I touch.

    I LIKE THE LOTION BUT THE PUMP DOES NOT WORK. IT IS DIFFICULT TO GET OUT OF THE BOTTLE W/O THE PUMP.

    • Softens Skin

    Cons

    • Bad Smell

    Best Uses

    • After Shower/Bath
    • Deep Moisturization
    • Winter Dryness

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

    This is a fantastic moisturizer -- goes on smooth as butter, absorbs and feels absolutely fantastic for the skin. Also, not animal-tested.
    But it's not exactly fragrance-free. There's a... tinge of well... not-so-pleasant smell that it has. It's not like the Aveeno fragrance-free that really has NO fragrance.
    That's the only reason I'd say it's Close to Perfect. (4 stars out of 5).
    I'll go back to the Aveeno after I exhaust this.

            Good body lotion, no smeel, goes on smooth and sinks in nicely with not too many harsh chemicals. Leaves skin soft and nourished. It's relatively light and non-greasy.

              I buy 'unscented' and add my own flavor. It is super amazing because it absorbs quickly and lasts.

              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!)

                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.
