One day it snows and snows and snows. The next day the temperatures drop way below freezing. Then suddenly we have a warm up and it’s in the high 40’s. Who knows what tomorrow or next week will bring! We are all dealing with the colder temperatures and the drier winter air which is sucking the moisture from our skin. It doesn’t matter if you live in North Dakota, California or North Carolina because we all seem to be affected by the drastic changes in weather. Even with spring officially starting in a few days, we just can’t seem to trust Mother Nature nowadays.
Luckily for us (and for you) AmLactin® Alpha-Hydroxy Skin Care has sent two products for the BIZ to review and have agreed to a giveaway for one of our US readers. AmLactin® has one major difference that makes it stand out from all the lotion companies around and that’s the power of lactic acid.
AmLactin Alpha-Hydroxy Skin Care has been a favorite of dermatologists for years. The strength of the AHA in the products they subscribe used to be the highest level of AHA you could get; now though the over-the-counter AmLactin products will help keep you from getting to the point that you need a dermatologist to relieve severely dry skin.
Marcia’s review of AmLactin® Moisturizing Body Lotion
I have one big problem with reviewing AmLactin® Moisturizing Body Lotion (approximately $13.99) and that is that I can never find it when I need it. There’s this man that I’m married to who thinks that this moisturizing body lotion is there for him. Since it doesn’t look girly and it has no fragrance, he often appropriates it.
I’ve learned to grab this and put it by my sink so that when I step out of the shower it’s ready to smother my body with. Since I’ve started using the AmLactin Moisturizing Body Lotion I’ve noticed much less itchy skin and no flakes either.
If you can read the label you can see what it does – gently exfoliates and intensely hydrates. For me it’s very important that it’s fragrance free and non-greasy. I have other products that I use on my legs. I don’t have others right now that I use on my body or arms though and that’s because I am so sensitive to smell.
AmLactin® Moisturizing Body Lotion has a special formula with clinically proven 12% lactic acid that’s pH-balanced for the skin. The lactic acid mentioned is a naturally occurring humectant for the skin. There’s an affinity for water molecules to help keep skin hydrated with this lotion. When your body retains moisture, it’s going to feel softer and smoother.
You won’t notice the exfoliation since it’s doing its job behind the scenes. It’s like a secret agent. It’s encouraging natural skin cell renewal through exfoliation and then delivering hydration to your skin. Tricky and wonderful at the same time.
Lisa’s review of AmLactin® Hydrating Body Cream
Do you have dry skin patches, Keratosis Pelaris (red bumps on arms or legs), or sun damaged skin? Then you want AmLactin® Ultra Hydrating Body Cream ($15.99).
This extremely thick, fragrance-free body cream is exactly what severely dry skin wants! The combination of alpha-hydroxy acid and super rich emolliants will cure your skin woes and make sure they never come back. The alpha-hydroxy acids exfoliate away those bumps and flakes, and the mineral oil and glycerin softens and repairs like crazy.
The ‘triple action’ is the triple-threat combination of alpha-hydroxy acid, rich humectants, and creamy emollients. This is a really, really, really thick body cream and you don’t need much – the swatch above is probably enough for my arms and legs with some to spare. One tube will last you a very long time. If you suffer from dry skin, even extremely rough dry skin, you are going to fall in love with this!
You can find AmLactin products easily online and at stores like Target, Walmart, drugstores and even Costco!
