Very Emollient Body Lotion Original Unscented
Rich and creamy, spreads easily. The pump container makes it very convenient.

I massage this lotion in and not only does it absorb well but also moisturizes quickly.
I received an expensive lotion that has a great philosophy on it as a gift and use this on top of the Alba, making the expensive lotion go further and getting the great moisturization I need from the Alba.
I will definitely be purchasing another bottle as needed.

Love this lotion. I have a sensitive nose to scents and don't like greasy lotion on my hands and this lotion is great in both areas. I agree with the con of not being able to get the last inch or so from the bottle with the pump so I tip it upside down and use it w/out the pump to get almost all of it. Great value for the size and really keeps my dry skin soft in the winter. I've tried numerous other products and none compare.

Other lotions weren't cutting it in winter
I have sensitive skin and a sensitive noggin and so cannot handle many of the scented lotions. Even some of the essential oil scents get me, and I am tired of wasting money on lotions that I have to pass on because of smell. Additionally, I was finding in the winter that putting lotion on my hands almost made them feel drier. They were developing lots of micro-cuts from dryness. Although using 100% shea butter on my hands at night was helpful, I still felt a need for a convenient lotion for the day that would leave my hands hydrated and protected. This one is a good match for me. And it really doesn't have any discernible scent despite containing botanical extracts; nor does it have the "off" scent of some unscented products whose ingredients are a little bitter.
Only cons I've noticed so far: The pump took me a full day of trying every hour or so to get open. I was just twisting sometimes and pressing and twisting other times, always in the direction indicated. I even wrote to Swanson to tell them the bottle was broken. Finally I really put ALL of my weight into it figuring I would either break the pump or release it, and that worked. But it was really unusually hard. An additional con or suggestion for improvement is that even though I can't begin to afford organic everything, it seems such a shame that *none* of the main ingredients in this lotion are certified organic or fair trade. I'd pay a couple of bucks more to ensure my primary body lotion was organic, especially since it sits on your skin longer than cleansing products do. And I do like to know about sourcing ethics, although I realize the verification can be pricey.

Good Product - Poor Packaging
Love the lotion. It is free of toxic ingredients found in most over the counter products. The price is reasonable compared to similar lotions, but bottle can be a real challenge. Sometimes it arrives open and sticky, and other times it is almost impossible to free the pump for use. There is always an inch or so of unusable lotion at the bottom of the bottle when it is near the end because the pump does not reach far enough. Since this is a large bottle, that's a lot of lotion wasted.

Best lotion I've ever used and conveniently priced for the amount you get. I keep it handy and it works great for dry skin. I recommend using it after doing kitchen cleanup when hands have been in contact with harsh soaps. I also like the fact that it is unscented so it will not interfere with perfumes.

I have used Body lotion for 50 years and I can honestly say this is the best yet. I have tried every brand on the market from cheap to expensive. This truly is the best lotion out there. Absorbs great . Never leaves a greasy feel. Price is great. I dare anyone to find anything better.

I love this lotion - light and non greasy, yet at the same time very rich and creamy. It's a very good price compared to my in store purchases.

Alba Botanical Lotion the Very Best
I am a massage therapist and I love using Alba lotion on my clients. They also love the awesome therapeutic qualities of this product.
I also like using the product at home. For people with dry skin, this is definitely your lotion to buy!
Also, by using Swanson products, I save a ton of money every time I order.
I really think anyone who uses this product will not be disappointed.

natural & simple!
i love this stuff because it is natural & simple without all sorts of scents & chemicals & who knows what. it does the job & doesnt irritate my extremely sensitive skin. my legs get very itchy without it!! the only trouble i have with it is when its really hot out i sweat easy so i have to be minimal with it because it will make my legs sweat more, especially if ive just shaved. but i dont go a day without it, use it on my whole body!

I really like this lotion. It doesn't feel sticky and it absorbs quickly, it would be nice if they had it with a nice scent though.

I have very sensitive and dry skin. This lotion works very well and because it is unscented it is perfect for me. I have tried other more expensive lotions and will be using this one from now on.

Best purchase ever
It absorbs quickly and makes my skin soft like my baby. Even I forgot use it 1,2 days, my skin is still soft. It's not greasy at all.
Really good deal.

Best Lotion EVER
I've tried a lot of body lotions and this is by far the best I've ever used! Alba Botanica is so creamy and rich, it's easy to apply and keeps skin hydrated all day long. It's such a savings over our local price!

Love this product, it's light yet effective in hydrating and smoothing the skin. And it's so cost effective!

Everything is just right about this product!

This lotion is nice - has a thick, rich consistency and is a very effective moisturizer. Nice large bottle, even though I would love a larger one as well. This one could use a little smell'em to it - smells a little bit like dirt but not on the skin.

Moisturizing, soaks right in
This is a perfect moisturizer for my sensitive skin. It soaks in and keeps me soft all day! Great for after the pool, too!

This is very good lotion-light and you stay moisturized for hours!

Bought this product because I go to some organizations that specifically request that participants use no products with fragrance. This is great alternative to my scented lotions when fragrance isn't appropriate.

I LOVE this lotion!!!
Never in my life have I come across a lotion that leaves my skin feeling silky smooth and moist the WHOLE day!! It isn't greasy either. I see to it that I never run out because since I started using it, every store-bought lotion pales in comparison in overall quality!

Best lotion I have ever used!
I live in the Northeast Ohio...cold, dry winters and I have well water which is so hard on my sensitive skin. This Alba lotion is nothing short of miraculous. This is the first time I have ever used a lotion where my skin wasn't dry and flaking all over again the next day. If I skip a day even two days my skin is still smooth with nary a flake. I have NEVER ever experienced that with any other lotion and believe me I've tried them all from $-$$$. Alba is hands down the BEST ever.
