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:

    I have really sensitive skin - major allergic rash whenever I'm exposed to chemicals and preservatives. This is the best unscented, natural moisturizer I've found. Also, this is the brand that my massage therapists and chiropractors use. I add my own essential oils to create my own signature scents.

    Long Lasting Moisture

    Pros

    • Goes On Smoothly

    Cons

    • Doesn't Absorb Well

    Best Uses

    • Deep Moisturization
    • Dry/Chapped Skin
    • Winter Dryness

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

    Was looking for a good unscented moisturizer and took a gamble on this and was pleasantly surprised. It costs more than I typically would spend but it good quality and moisturizes well. The moisture lasts a long time after it has been absorbed. There is a slight residue that it leaves for 10 min after it has been rubbed on but that would not deter me from buying this at all. The thickness of the lotion is perfect as well, it spreads easily but is by no means watery.

    I also like the fairly simple ingredient list.

    Not scented but smelly.

    By T.K.

    describe yourself Brand Buyer

    See all my reviews

    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.

      Great but not fragrance-free exactly

      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.
