Alba Kona Coffee Hawaiian After-Sun Lotion Review

Doing Drugstore: Alba Kona Coffee Hawaiian After-Sun Lotion

I really, really can't stand synthetic scents. That's why Alba's Kona Coffee Hawaiian After-Sun Lotion ($8) was a delight to use. I picked it up after accidentally getting a sunburn on my ankles (Bella can miss a spot, too), but quickly realized that it was much more versatile than its name would suggest.

It smells like a fresh cup of vanilla hazelnut roast — nice early in the morning when I'm still a little bleary-brained — and my skin soaked it up almost instantaneously. There was no standing around in my necessaries waiting endlessly for my lotion to dry, and the scent lingered pleasantly but unobtrusively on my skin until after lunch. If you're in the mood to luxuriate in lotion, this isn't the product for you. But on days when you need to get out the door, I highly recommend it. It's a light, caffeinated lift when you need one most.
