Amlactin Alpha hydroxy therapy daily is a go to moisturizer for anyone looking for mild exfoliation and hydration in one. Over the years, I have used Amlactin lotion whenever I had my KP flair ups on my back. Generally it works gradually to smoothen the skin, helps slightly with hyperpigmentation especially during the summer and moisturizes my skin. P.S if you have any hang ups with parabens, this is not the product for you. A great paraben free , effective option and my personal favorite is DCL High potency body lotion.

Lactic between 5-12 percent provides a mild to moderate improvement in fine wrinkling and promote softer, smoother skin.

HOW I USED IT
I used it AM &PM after a shower. Usually when I start testing a product I always introduce it slowly into my routine.
HOW LONG DID I TEST THE PRODUCT?
I started using this sometime in May after I ran out of DCL High potency body lotion ran out, so I would say 4months.
WHAT DOES IT SMELL LIKE?
Light fresh scent. Almost non existent
Normal, oily, even sensitive (but approach slowly)
Please read the ingredient list above for possible allergen/fragrance that may not be appropriate for your skin type.
Very Satisfied = 5, Satisfied = 4, Neutral =3, Dissatisfied = 2, Very Dissatisfied = 1, N/A = Void Response
Affordable: its found in the drug store so its really reasonable priced compared to other moisturizers formulated with Lactic acid I have used in the past.
Gradually reduce KP on my skin(keratosis pilaris)
Left my skin moisturized without leaving a greasy residue, which makes it a good moisturizer to use doing summer/warm temperatures but please remember to use your SPF. It can be used during the winter/harmattan season but if you are exceptionally dry you may want to layer an oil or more moisturizing lotion.
My only critique would be this product was much slower with soothing my KP compared to my previous DCL high potency body lotion. With DCL I saw a noticeable difference in days with my KP while with the Amlactin, It took a few weeks. It is important to note that DCL does have additional antioxidants in the formula and the percentage of lactic acid isn't disclosed so it could be more or less.
