Although I marked 'yes' to re-purchasing this, it is the first time I really wish MUA had a 'maybe' button. I bought this after my derm recommended it for some bumps I had on my legs. I got the HUGE size at Costco on sale for $14. I really love the EFFECT of this product, but I HATE how greasy it is. I can't wear it in the summer, and if I put it on my legs in the winter, I have a hard time getting my pants up lol. And I have silk sheets, so then my legs stick to my sheets. It is fragrance free, so that's a plus. Also, the pump on the bottle stops working when there is roughly 1/4 of the product left. So then I have to open it. All in all, a good product to use when you get some bumps for a few days, but I just can't use it everyday, which is more what I was looking for.
I've been using the AmLactin body cream as a hand cream for a while, but decided to try the lotion because the cream is so heavy and leaves a definite residue on my hands. I'll be going back to the cream - the lotion isn't as moisturizing and softening, and I find I need to use it 3+ times per day to get any results (in fact, if I don't, it just looks like my skin is super-dry and peeling...not attractive). It's also pretty much impossible to avoid squirting out way too much, either because the lotion is so thin or because the bottle is poorly designed.
This is an amazing product. Buy it.
I was having chest breakouts (yuck). It wasn't regular acne, so I was having trouble treating it. It was so bad, I wasn't able to wear regular scoop-neck shirts. I did some research, and I found something about KP. Amlactin was listed as a product that could treat it.
You can find Amlactin at Wal-Mart, but it's a bid pricey. You can sometimes find a printable coupon for it at Walmart.com.
Even without the coupon, I will buy Amlactin Moisturizing Lotion again. Amlactin has 12% lactic acid, so it exfoliates your skin. I noticed a difference THE NEXT DAY on my chest. I was TOTALLY CLEAR within a week. I use it twice-a-day, but I do have to use a separate sunscreen. I think it's helping my facial breakouts, too, but not as much as the ones on my chest.
UPDATE: So after skipping the lotion for two days, I broke out again. After ONE use, the breakouts were gone!!!!!! I guess I'll have to use it forever. :-)
UPDATE II: Just to test the update above, I skipped a few days. Yep, I broke out again. So, this works, but you have to keep using it.
I usually don't write reviews on anything, but it seems like I've been making some awesome purchases lately, probably from reading everyone else's reviews first. Anyway, I use amlactin for my KP on my knees. I know weird place for bumps. But it's also made my legs/thighs very soft, and my feet are super soft too! Like I've been getting weekly pedicures. No joke. After 2 weeks of this stuff my feet are sandal ready. I've always had dry skin on my heels and its gone. My last pedicure was 2 months ago. It smells funky but the smell goes away fast. I'd recommend this stuff to anyone who's got dry skin or patches!
I use this on my bikini area to prevent in-growns, which I'm very prone to. I have super hair follicules or something. Anyway, it's soothing and does the job well. Not a very pleasant scent, but it seems to fade quickly. Makes my inner thigh area REALLY soft. I will re-purchase when I run out, I think there are $3 off coupons at the company's website last time I checked.
I picked this up on recommendation from a friend and I have to say, when I use it diligently twice a day, it definitely makes a difference in the amount of ingrown hairs I have on my legs and underarms as well as softening rough patches of skin on my elbows and knees. It's a bit sticky, so I do have to wash my hands after I use it and the smell is noticeable, but not overpowering.
I'm quite happy with this product and I am already working on my second bottle.
Like many others, I bought this for use on my arms for KP. While it hasn't cleared it up completely, it definitely has helped. But what I really love it for is my legs. I'm constantly getting ingrown hairs on the backs of my calves if I'm not super diligent about exfoliating and shaving every day. The Amlactin keeps the ingrowns at bay, and is also clearing up the dark spots left from older ingrown hair scars. I don't know if the formulation has changed, but I don't think it smells like ammonia at all, maybe a bit like glue, but the smell doesn't linger. My only real complaint is that it is pretty sticky, if I don't wash my hands after applying it, my palms will feel sticky until I wash them. Bought a 20 oz bottle at Costco for around $20,
I discovered this brand a few months back when I was preparing for my winter skin care routine. Basic lotions just don't cut it, and in extreme weather you need more than just lotion or cream. This has ingredients and acids in it which help your skin exfoliate and also deeply soften dry skin or dry patches. I bought the lotion because it was a better deal at $23. The body cream is sort of a small tube. If you have very sensitive skin, this can sting a little at first. It's not a reaction and to me it means it's working and the lotion is getting rid of your dry skin issues. Amlactin is the only product I've found that actually works to combat dryness, and the others are only temporary fixes.
Amlactin contains a clinically proven alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), 12% lactic acid. This AHA is ideal for rough, dry skin relief. AmLactin Moisturizing Body Lotion gently exfoliates dead skin cells to help return dry skin to its healthy, natural state. It helps skin lock in and retain moisture through intense hydration.
AmLactin Moisturizing Body Lotion Cream Features:
I purchased this (for a second time) after reading rave reviews by a respected blogger. She spoke highly of its ability to fade hyperpigmentation on her legs so I decided to give it another try after being disappointed some years ago. This lotion is nearly $20 which is pricey for a drugstore brand & considering I don't use lotion at all, quite a stretch. I used the entire bottle & once again, regrettably so. It did nothing for my hyperpigmentation but maybe it's because my dark patches are hormonally driven, I don't know. I won't buy this again at any rate.
