Ah, Summer... birds chirping, sunshine warming my soul and booming sneezes from my allergies shattering the peaceful. This is when I know to come out of hibernation. In addition to getting my wardrobe summer ready, I also have to retire my winter body cream in search for something lighter for the warmer weather. Enter: Alba botanical body lotion.
I bought the 12 fl oz bottle with the pump and it is very convenient to dispense and spread on. The feeling of this lotion is light and it leaves no greasy residue on my skin showing that my skin is indeed drinking it in! The smell is pleasant and not too strong and reminds me of a light Jasmine flower scent.
I was doubtful that a formula this light would last on my skin all day. The sweet almond oil in this does a great job of keeping skin soft and smooth to the touch for the entire day. The skeptic in me found that even at the end of the day my skin stays well hydrated with Alba.
What's more is that this product is paraben free, mostly organic and has gentle acids (alpha hydroxy acids) that can slowly exfoliate dull skin for a smoother look and feel. Alba's alpha hydroxy acids are polishing my dull skin. I'm already saying," Later, Alligator!" to my winter skin!
