What’s good about it?
Well, in essence, it works. Pretty simple really. The second ingredient is lactic acid, long considered the best for treating surface ‘bumps’ as it works on the top of the epidermis. A bit like peeling away the layers of a sausage roll. Nice image I know. There are other items in the range, but this is the one I would probably use the most often.
This is only advised for the body, they’re working on products for the face and children.


What’s not so good about it?
It’s £27.50 for 200ml, but if you are someone who suffers/has suffered with KP, that won’t be your first concern, you’ll just want rid. And having said that, most of you will only use this on isolated parts of your body, upper arms for example, so it will last a lot longer than a normal body lotion.
