    This stuff is great! I was looking for a deeply moisturizing cream for hands feet to use before bed. I have a normal amount of dryness on both and exfoliate pretty regularly, but I'm not a huge fan of having to put on lotion during the day and heavy creams and lotions are easier to use (for me) before bed since I can put socks on if need be and I'm not doing anything with my hands. I thought this might maintain smoothness after using a foot file and minimize daytime dryness. It does both and dries realllly quickly- a bonus if I have suddenly get back out of bed or if I needed a quick fix during the day. Definitely no need for socks, or to worry about greasing up the pages of a book. There isn't any added fragrance- just the usual weird glycolic smell, which dissipates fairly quickly. This is now a staple in my routine!

    SO WHERE'S THE GLYCOLIC AHA????

    I've used this product for 11 years, so I KNOW how the skin should feel after each application and what the skin should look like after a week of daily treatments.

    I've used this product for 11 years, so I KNOW how the skin should feel after each application and what the skin should look like after a week of daily treatments.

    I ran out of this product 6 months ago and delayed ordering until recently. After four nightly treatments of this new batch, my skin feels no different.

    Usually by the 3rd treatment, my skin will "burn" and "tingle" after an application. And, by the end of that week, my face will be exfoliated. My face will look fresh and healthy. Continued treatments will just keep it that way.

    I don't know how much Glycolic AHA this new batch contains, but it certainly not the 12% advertised. I'd be surprised if it has more than 2%.

    Shame on you Neoteric Cosmetics.

      For those of you out there who have no really feet issues, use this morning and evening and you will have pedicure soft feet.

      I have horrible issues with my feet. Very painful issues that keep me from walking. I've been casted for months at a time and have a great amount of pain if I walk, or worse, stand for too long.
      One of the problems was that I developed a corn. My first but was told that could be part of the cause of my pain. My podiatrist removed the corn and gave me very specific instructions on how to alleviate that one pain center.
      I went at it full on because anything I can do to help myself, I am on it. So I started soaking my feet in lavander scented epsom salts (so soothing), all the while using a pumice stone to keep my entire heel free of hard skin. After the soak and roughing is done I apply this lotion to my feet. I use this morning and evening as a preventative tool. On my healing corn and another very area of very thickening skin I then add Aquaphor and put on socks. This has healed and prevented the corn from returning (knock wood) and it also softens up the other problem area. It is much less painful to walk now so I am a happy camper!

      The Alpha Hydrox Foot cream with 12% AHA may help remove dead skin on your feet but it doesn't on mine.
      The Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Foot Therapy which contains urea, works better for me. Both products work best on clean, dry skin.

          Comments about Alpha Hydrox Extra Strength Deep Therapy Foot Cream, 4 oz:

          This is a great foot cream. After application, I noticed immediately that my feet felt softer and smoother. My husband is diabetic and I applied to his feet to aide in moisturizing his very callused feet. He actually asked asked me the next day what it was I applied because he really noticed a difference after one application. We've used Kerasel on his feet in the past, but he said it moisturized but didn't soften his feet like the Alpha Hydrox creme. I will purchase this creme again because the amount of creme you get for the money is a bargain when compared to Kerasel. My husband and I both think it works wonderfully, plus there's no odd or unpleasant smell to this product.

            This 12% AHA exfoliant keeps my feet soft, including cuticles. I also use this on my finger cuticles to keep them under control. I have found Alpha Hydrox to have the lowest priced good quality AHA and retinol products. I use Alpha Hydrox Extra Strength Deep Therapy Foot Cream, Retinol ResQ, AHA Souffle 12% Glycolic AHA, Spot Light Targeted Skin Lightener (2% Hydroquinone), and Foaming Face wash. Aside from Alpha Hydrox, I use Paula's Choice BHA exfoliant, serums and moisturizers.

                Comments about Alpha Hydrox Extra Strength Deep Therapy Foot Cream, 4 oz:

                I come from a family of people with less than perfect feet. Nighty use of this cream (after which I put on a pair of socks) has really
                taken care of my nasty cracked heels. It took about a month of nightly use before the results were really apparent, but i'll never stop using it again!
                I've used it for years now, and if I do interrupt use my heels eventually revert to their former, less-than-ideal natural state.
                And an additional, interesting plus: Since I began using this regularly, quite a few years ago, I have NEVER had any foot oder again, AT ALL! Perhaps it has something to do with the accelerated sloughing off of skin, but it's pretty amazing!

                  I know it's for feet, but use it everywhere you want your skin to be soft, and over a few weeks, your skin will look less dull and actually glow. I use it on my face and neck before bed, as well as on extremities. Don't use it in sensitive areas, like inside your elbows or skin creases, and skip a couple of days if your skin feels sensitive after using. The alpha hydroxy acids are well known in the dermatology circles to be magical, and this is the highest concentration you can buy without a prescription.

                    Use nightly and Alpha Hydrox will keep the bottoms of your feet so nice and smooth. No cracking or rough skin. Nice product for those that are sensitive to fragrance, as it appears to be mostly fragrance free. Great product for the price! Everyone I have given it to loves it!!!

                      Especially this time of year (the dead of winter), my feet get so dry, I have to keep them covered. I've tried so many different types of moisturizers, but nothing has worked very well. After *one* application of this cream, I noticed a difference. It's nice too, because you don't need very much of it, so this tube will last me a while.
                      Without hesitation, I can recommend this product, and I've already told my sister about it!
