I had very dry skin and after reading reviews online I thought I try out this brand. After a week of use I noticed that all my dry skin was starting to shed off. Also, the cream left my skin very soft. I would highly recommend this cream fro anyone with dry skin. Regarding KP - it helps but not as much as I thought it would. Overall its a good daily cream to use.

Finally something that works!
40 years of all kinds of creams and remedies to no avail. My skin would dry up and blow away without it -especially
my legs. Can be quite acidic to some skin types, though.
This one has less odour than the Lac Hydrin version.
Almost never need cortisone anymore.

I've had little bumps on the back of my arms (keratosis pilaris) for as long as I can remember, and nothing has worked to diminish them. Within a month of using this lotion nightly on my arms, the bumps are gone! The only bad thing I have to say about this products is that it contains PABA.

My husband started using this product while at our cottage in Nova Scotia. It's just what he needs for his dry skin. The only problem was that we couldn't buy it here in the States. Ordering from Well.ca was a breeze. We received the lotion within a week, and the price was very reasonable. We'll be taking advantage of this service again in the future.

Apparently, I have eczema. You wouldn't be able to tell by looking at my skin. It's soft and clear, however, I itch. The itch is extreme to the point that I bleed on occassions by scratching in the night. It wakes me up and I go to bed everynight with an ice pack. I have been to a dermatologist, with no help there. For years I have been using hydrous emollient mixing it with aloe vera and vita-e skin oil. Then on top of that I applied Cortizone 10 (perscription). It has kept it somewhat bearable. Then a friend asked a professional friend and she suggested Dermalac Lotion (not the cream). It's been a couple of weeks since I have been using Dermalac, and I have not been using the cortizone 10. It has been wonderful so far, much more relief. I'll really know how effective it is when winter is here.
