DCL C SCAPE HIGH POTENCY BODY LOTION
December 04, 2017
This summer, after trying out a bunch of body products I noticed I started my Keratosis Pilaris had flared up again on my back and chest area. I was oddly excited because I saw it as an opportunity to test out some new products that claimed to clear KP.
First, I purchased Glyton body lotion which was formulated with glycolic acid targeting keratosis pilaris. In the past, I have had positive experience with Glytone products but this time around it was the complete opposite. IT STUNG!!!! OMG! I was in severe discomfort when I applied it, it was unexplainable. After a few minutes, it neutralizes and the pain begins to wear off. It left, a heavy moisturizing feels afterwards which I was due to the mineral oil content.
After weeks of effort, I gave up. And I wanted to go back to my old faithful when a good friend of mine mentioned this DCL C Scape High Potency Body lotion to me. I read up on the company, the products and ingredients and purchased a bottle. When it arrived, I used it immediately, and although there was a little tingling sensation (from the Lactic Acid content) it was bearable and nothing like the Glytone lotion. It was encouraging; so, I used it the next day and noticed by the end of the day, my KP was almost gone.

Yup!! On my second bottle
It comes in a grey, plastic bottle with a flip spout. This was my least favorite aspect of this product hence the 4.5 rating.
Cleared my keratosis pilaris in two days. The first day it made my skin feel nice and smooth but by the second day the bumps pictured above had disappeared completely. Amazing!!
- It is absorbing instantly into the skin without greasy residue
- My skin looked more radiant by the third week of consistent use
- Love the scent of the lotion. It light and dissipates rather quickly.
- It exfoliates my skin mildly which reduces my need of using a scrub twice a week
- As mentioned earlier, the major reason for the above rating is the packaging. First issue was the shape of the bottle. It was a little difficult getting product out initially, so I had to give the bottle a squeeze and I left the bottle deformed. It had a dent and it was difficult to adjust it.
Secondly, my family and I are on vacation. I packed this lotion in my normal travel toiletries bag and on arrival I discovered that the flip top had popped open and most of the moisturizer had spilled in my bag (I was so upset). The flip top usually works but this one was messed up for some reason.
- When it comes to brightening, the results have been quite slow. This is not negative; the brightening effects of Ascorbic acid and lactic acid is usually gradual so for those reading this thinking it would brighten your skin overnight; that’s not the case. It’s a slow process which I personally don’t mind because my main reason for purchasing this product was to resolve my KP.
