Review Overview

Despite the claims that make this sound like an advanced moisturizer for dry, cracked feet, this is an incredibly basic fragrance-free foot cream that’s mostly a blend of water-binding agents with wax and greasy emollients. It’s an OK option for dry skin on the feet, but the pH doesn’t permit the AHA-like ingredients to exfoliate skin. That’s too bad, because a well formulated moisturizing exfoliant for feet can make a significant improvement in their feel and appearance. Any of the BHA products from Paula’s Choice would run circles around this product, especially if your concern is thickened, dry, or cracked skin on your feet.

Claims

Multilayered moisturizing system—provides optimal healing with a special blend of emollient and humectant ingredients. Clinically proven effective—improves softness and smoothness more effectively than prescription skin care products. Restores moisture to dry, cracked skin—only AmLactin provides a unique ULTRAPLEX formulation with a natural blend of triple lactic alpha-hydroxy acids, which exfoliate and hydrate the skin. Uncomplicates dry skin care—fragrance-free, hypoallergenic skin care available without a prescription; use twice daily for best results. Travel friendly—the 3-oz tube fits easily in your purse or briefcase, and it is also flight friendly. Created by the trusted scientists at USL—Upsher-Smith Laboratories, Inc., a company trusted by pharmacists and physicians for over 50 years.
