Body lotion with glycolic or lactic acid for KP

Any reccs? My legs are a disgrace! I've been using the eucerin foot cream which works but it leaves a lingering stickiness that I don't love.

I'm looking for something with a decent % of lactic/glycolic acid that's available in Europe. There are some ones in the us that seem really interesting but the shipping costs are too high. Thanks x

I didn't keep up using it to test enough. But good reviews

But this is great but stinks, really stinks. Use at night with long sleeves

Sali Hughes recommends the above and also for KP

Following with interest. Great recommendations so far!

The Paula's Choice one is the best for KP as its BHA and can exfoliate within the pores but it's a bit pricey. I've used the Palmers one and it's good too and I think it's been reformulated recently as it doesn't smell as bad as it used to.

Not a product for KP but I just wanted to add that I gave up gluten for other health reasons 2 years ago and after about 6 months my KP had vanished ! I've since read that it can be the bodies way of eliminating toxins. Hope this helps.

I have KP on my arms and use Amlactin. Not cheap but a little will do, so it lasts.

Thanks everyone. I tried that Palmers one in boots today, it reeks! I remember using the previous version which smelled very strongly of chocolate IIRC. This one smells like the cleaning product aisle in Tesco.

I'm going to try the Ameliorate one, will report back with updates!!

I love the smell of the Palmers AHA, I reminds me of fresh ginger. I use it every day.

I tried and loved the Ameliorate range. Got the whole lot. Smells gorgeous and worked really well.

AHAs won't work on KP. You need BHA for that. Off the top of my head I can't think of any though I think the Clarins up thread is supposed to be good.
