This AHA body lotion claims to restore moisture and soften dry skin—something almost any moisturizer can do. This contains AHA-like ingredients that have the potential to exfoliate skin, but the pH of this moisturizer is too high for them to work in this manner. That leaves you with a boring, overpriced body lotion whose best quality is being fragrance-free. It’s an average option for dry skin, and please don’t mistake this as having prescription strength for seriously dry skin. The formula lacks many key ingredients dry skin needs to repair itself and become healthier.

Amlactin is one of two products I've encountered that improve keratosis pilaris (bumps on the skin). Lactic acid is the ingredient that does the trick. It does not cure it, but along with exfoliation it makes quite a difference. I only use it for that though, so I don't know what it's like for normal skin. I can see why they want to market it to the general population instead of just people with skin conditions, but I think it might have been created with that purpose in mind.
