Honest reviews


Best lotion on the market

I have been using alba coca butter lotion for 2 years and no lotion compares to this one. It moisturizes but doesn’t leave a greasy or oily feeling and it smells amazing. Before I was using baby lotion but it would not moisturize as much as I needed and then I tried bath and body works lotion but that stuff actually causes my skin to break out in a rash. I will never stop using this lotion, I am very happy with it and i use it on my 4 year old son and he absolutely loves this lotiona s well.

Smell is cheap

I purchased two Alba Botanica products (this lotion and a body scrub) and I did not like either. This lotion smells like a cheap cocoa butter smelling lotion. Why purchase a $10 tube of this for that smell? Also, it does a very basic job of moisturizing. Nothing special. I REALLY wanted to like both of these products based of the reviews but was dissapointed in both. I would recommend you smell the scent of this in a store and decide for yourself. Will be writing a review on the body scrub as well so feel free to check that one as well. My skin is naturally oily and accumulates “stuff” easily so I was looking for a scrub that worked for that, so if this describes your skin, please feel free to check out that review.

i usually buy this cream in whole foods but i wanted to see how much it cost here…buy it at whole foods! its cheaper and no shipping costs! but i wanted to review the cream itself cuz i love it and have been using it for years..

Almost Perfect

I’m happy to finally found lotion that doesn’t contain harmful chemicals, that moisturizes well but not waxy, greasy or sticky. The only con is the smell. I like the smell of coco butter butAlba Cocoa Butter Hand and Body Lotion, 24 Ounceis very strong and can be overwhelming. I can’t use this in the morning because it makes it impossible to wear perfume. I was looking to change to fragrance free Alba, but reading the recent reviews it was disappointing since they changed to the new formula.

Best lotion

You can buy much more expensive lotions, or much cheaper for that matter, but you probably won’t find a lotion that works as well as this product. It smells like coconut, which I happen to love, and provides very good protection on the skin. I work in the medical field and wash my hands frequently, so my hands are quite dry. The Alba product is the only one that works for me. Sorry Burt’s Bees, I don’t like the way your products smell.

Second to all

Great product. I was introduced to it by a Wholefoods worker and I think she hit the nail on the head. It’s very inexpensive, smells good and leaves my skin so soft without making it greasy. Great price for the size too.

This is a really nice product, but it doesn’t moisturize quite as good as I had hoped. Bear in mind that I am age 61. I have it near my kitchen sink, and use it on my hands after working around the room. It smells wonderful.

smelled a little old and isn’t as rich as i thought

i bought this one because palmer’s has soy. this one is just ok. it smelled a little old and there was no expiration date. it doesn’t smell or feel like cocoa butter.

Large bottle

This is a large bottle with a great pump. I love the way it smells and makes my skin feel really good and not greasy! I will always buy this lotion since its gentle on skin and has great ingredients.
