Alba Botanica® Very Emollient Body Lotion Original -- 1 Gallon
Wonderful lotion at an extremely good price
My husband and I both have jobs that keep us out of doors. Mine, especially, requires being in the sun and working in soil. The result is, as one would expect, dry, leathery skin.
That's why this is our favorite lotion. Immediately after applying it, it feels almost waxy and then (makes slurping noise...) it disappears into the skin. The result is skin that feels very smooth without oiliness. It's so good that I use it as a face lotion, as well. Feels as if it gives my skin protection for most of the day.
Free of parabens and an unbeatable price.
We, too, encountered the challenge of refilling our quart sized pump container. Like others, we used a funnel. Using a plastic bag with a corner cut off to squeeze it into the bottle didn't quite work. However, if I'd had a real pastry bag... ;-)

Great lotion for year round use.
I have been using this lotion for years. I love it. Moisturizes my skin. Not greasy. Has a light floral scent.

Only one problem
The lotion is wonderful and I've used it for years. This time I decided to buy a gallon so I wouldn't run out so fast. But it does not come with a pump. I called Alba and they suggested a funnel!! This stuff is so thick I can't imagine a funnel would work. So I have to find a pump that fits that bottle.

Terrific lotion now in the gallon container. This really is my favorite lotion.
One drawback on the refill. Using a funnel to refilll the 32 oz bottles, this takes awhile. I used a spoon to push it through the funnel hole.
