There's so much to love about this lotion, and a couple of things to really intensely dislike. It boils down to effectiveness vs. smell.

I bought it to try for bumps on my upper arms and had minor success, it seemed to reduce the bumps a bit. It is, however, fantastic for keeping my feet soft. It just seems to eat rough skin. Because of the drastic results with using it on my feet, and out of curiosity and a misguided sense of adventure, I tried it on my face. My skin is pretty sensitive so I'm sure plenty of people could use it without stinging and looking sunburned, but miraculously, after that wore off, I didn't have pores for at least a week. I'm in my 30s, in that phase that's pre-lines, but my pores are mounting an offensive to claim ever expanding territory on my face. Having my pores disappear for over a week almost made explaining the weird sunburny look worth it. It goes without saying that sunscreen is a must with an alpha hydroxy lotion (even if you're washing it off before leaving the house), to avoid a double helping of sun damage. These days I don't even peek outside without spf 90 so it isn't an issue for me.

Unfortunately, it smells (and tastes) terrible. The ammonia in the lotion smells exactly the way you'd expect. It's very faint, but really, most people have a pretty low thresh-hold for smelling like urine. There's no fragrance in the lotion, and I've seen other reviews suggesting mixing with something that smells good, but that just sounds like it would smell like urine and say...vanilla. The taste is horrifying, and I realize most people don't eat lotion, but eventually someone is likely to kiss you (especially in the post-sunburn, pre-return of the pores window), or you will just get some on your own lips while applying to your face. It combines the taste of blue cheese and lemon heads, with the sensation of licking a 9 volt battery while chewing tinfoil, if that's your favorite dessert, you're in for a treat!

This stuff is super effective. There's no two ways about it. If you're not smell sensitive, and not likely to taste it, go crazy with it, it's a very clever lotion. It's genius for feet -- apart from being super effective, my feet are also far enough away from my nose that I can't smell the lotion, and I'm highly unlikely to have to taste it.

I bought this mainly for my son who has KP on his arms. I've been using it on him for about 2 weeks with not much noticable improvement. I was really expecting a little more from it, based on all of the positive reviews for that use. I have also been using it and it has really softened and smoothed my skin. I don't care for the smell and it is much heavier/greasier than other lotions I typically use. So, I guess if you don't mind a heavier lotion and are just looking for the moisturizing qualities of this lotion, you'll like it.

    I am 67 years old and have used this product on my face for years. I have almost no wrinkles and very soft skin. My husband starting using it on his face a few years ago and has had the same results. Friends are always commenting on my beautiful skin. I created "Amlactin", with a little help from heredity!

      I have extremely dry skin and this is the ONLY moisturizer that helps it. The smell is not-so-good, but for what you receive in moisture, it's totally worth it. It's really a miracle lotion, I could not live without it.

            Best lotion for getting rid of dry, flaky skin or that "winter ashiness". Applying right after a bath or shower locks in moisture. I use the LOC method. That is liquid from the shower, any oil (but I prefer Watkins), then adding this lotion, Amlactin, as the cream to lock in all the moisture and oil and get rid of the dryness. A little pricey, but well worth it.

                Started using product after bout with psoriasis when skin became rough and dermatologist recommended it. Within a week, could feel the difference. Love this product. It's not inexpensive, but it works.

                    Switch to other promising lotions, however,always come back to this. There is really no smell, so I usually apply a small amount of fragrant lotion on top.
