My whole life I've had to deal with really dry skin, especially my hands. Growing up in Utah they would often get so dry they would crack and be really painful. I would use lotion all the time, but nothing really helped as a child. Now that I live in California, my dry skin hasn't been as much of an issue, but I still get dry patches on my hands. Anytime I go back to visit my family in Utah I feel like all the moisture is sucked dry the minute I get off the plane though.
Recently, I had the opportunity to try AmLactin Skin Products and I brought them along with me on my trip home to put them to work. AmLactin Alpha-Hydroxy Skin Care harnesses the power of lactic acid to gently exfoliate and intensely hydrate to relieve severely dry skin. The products work to remove dead skin cells and improve the overall look and texture of your skin.
I was able to try the following products:
All of the products have a good consistency, a little on the thinner side, but you don’t need a lot for each use. They’re non-greasy and absorb well into my skin. A few hours after application I can still feel the lotion working it’s magic. I like the fact that they work like heavy duty creams, but without any of the grease. The products say they are fragrance free, but to me they do have a scent. It’s not fruity, or clinical smelling, but is present. I do not care for the smell, but would not consider it a deterrent from using it. Once the product is absorbed, the scent goes away. I've enjoyed using the products over the last few weeks, especially to get my winter skin ready for summer. I've been using them daily since then (I went at the end of March) and have been really happy with all of the products.
