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 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!)

              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.

                    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.
