How can I explain how much I love this stuff? For as long as I can remember, I've had chicken skin (Keratosis Pilaris is the spiffy science-y word) on my arms. You know, that bumpy stuff. I used to put acne medication on it, and that only helped slightly. But I read online that the ingredient in this lotion (AHA) chemically exfoliates skin and gets rid of the bumps. I bought this stuff for around $7 at Walmart (where else?) and have been using it for about a month. Can I just say that my arms are somehow smooth now? They've never felt smooth before. And the red bumps are mostly gone. If I don't use it twice a day though, the bumps come back a little. But it's really great. It smells good too, kind of light and flower-esque.
Let me also say that this lotion has many a purpose. Like I said yesterday, you can use it on your face to make it really smooth and even. And at the risk of getting too personal, I also use it on my bikini line after I shave it, because it exfoliates and keeps it from getting irritated. Problem solved!
So here's the bottom line: This stuff is all-purpose and just plain awesome. Oh yeah, and cheap!
