No foam? Strange!

Pros: great smell, makes skin super soft

Cons: somewhat costly

The Bottom Line: If you love a great smelling body wash, then you are going to truly love the Alba Botanica Coconut Cream Body Wash.

I'm not exactly how the obsession started, but about 3-4 months ago my girlfriend started bringing home loads of bath and body products. This of course was fueled by a new found love that she had with a line of products by Alba Botanica. Rather than having a healthy obsession, she completely went overboard buying every product that she could find that was made by them. We had body wash, creams, facial cleansers, and all sorts of random products in a variety of scents and textures. It was quite apparent that we were going to need a shelf specifically for this product line alone.

Texture/Feel
The Alba Botanica Coconut Milk Cream Body Wash is probably one of my favorites of their product line. The strange thing about it however, is that it is a really thin liquid. It comes out of the bottle quite fast and has a water type of feel to it. The product really doesn't feel like it has much substance it at all. In fact, I would have to say that it worried me a bit at first, because at the price of $10 per bottle, I thought that my girlfriend was totally taken for a ride.

When applying it to the body it works completely different than any other body wash on the market, because it doesn't foam at all. The package itself says that it has a very light foam, but by light foam, they mean that it doesn't foam at all. The nice thing is that it goes on really easy and comes off much easier than other products on the market.

Effectiveness
The strange thing about the product is that regardless of the lack of foam, it really works great. The product leaves the skin incredibly soft after you get out of the shower. I am still impressed with how soft my typically dry skin feels after using the body wash. The only thing that is bad about it is that you can't really use it twice in a day because it can make your skin feel a little more oily than soft with too much use.

The only thing that I do worry about is because of the lack of lather I wonder if that ultimately effects how well it cleans. It is difficult to tell where you have applied the product. It sort of seems as if you are simply throwing a cloak over the problem rather than actually cleaning yourself.

Smell
The product smells absolutely wonderful. The coconut milk is a really mellow but wonderful smell. The biggest issue with the smell is that it doesn't really last all that long after you dry off. I would imagine that someone that has a very sensitive nose could smell it, but the smell seems to go away completely within an hour or so.

For me, the warm water hitting the product really makes the whole bathroom smell wonderful. It may not last on the skin very long, but it really does make the whole bathroom smell great and if you leave your bathroom open it will make the connecting room smell wonderful as well.

Final Thoughts
If you haven't tried this line of products yet, you should most definitely give it a try. The products work great, and smell wonderful. I personally recommend the coconut milk as one of the first of their products that you try. The smell is definitely better than the others, and the coconut oil really seems to make my skin feel execellent.
