Keratosis Pilaris – is the medical term for red bumpy skin usually on the upper arms. I have always had mildly bumpy upper arms. It’s not something I’ve really worried about it, let’s face it, there are far greater things to worry about… like not being fat and lasering my lady garden. Nonetheless, having buttery soft, evenly toned smooth skin is a beauty goal, and one I discovered is completely achievable…
About a month ago the head buyer at work gave me this moisturiser and said “it’s had loads of great press”, thrusting the tube into my hand. I thought… yeah whatevs, so have loads of shit products. THEN I actually tried it, noncommittally rubbing in this strange smelling cream into my upper ARM (note singular), I got my guinea pig flatmate to do the same. Then we forgot all about it – that is until showering the next day, I saw my test arm vs the control arm: these arms could have belonged to two different people. Seriously. It took less than 48 hours to see such a stark difference in skin texture and redness. I wish I took a before and after photo, but didn’t so you’re just gonna have to take my unsponsored, honest product junkie word for it. Rarely has a skincare product delivered such instantaneous and remarkable results.
The patented ingredient in this product is a unique alpha hydroxy formula, great for all you AHA fans, it works in the same way a glycolic acid cream would.
I will buy it when I run out (beauty blogger seal of “yes I will pay for it” approval) and slather it everywhere. I’m not stopping at my arms….
You can buy here.
