    Question New Product - Neutrogena

    As a fellow KP sufferer, I was wondering if anyone has tried Neutrogena's Skin Smoothing Body Lotion ("Bump Minimizing with SPF 15")? It states on the front of the bottle that it is "clinically proven to sweep away bumps on backs of arms and legs, roughness, and dry patches." Also, on back of the bottle it states that within 2 weeks, it will reduce bumps, smooth away roughness, improve skin texture, improve overall skin condition, and reduce redness.
    I first noticed that I had KP at 15 and I am now 31. I have tried Lac-Hydrin 5, Am Lactin 12, Carmol 40, and nothing seems to work. My KP got really severe this past December when I was 7 months pregnant with my first child. It has not gotten any better since then. Now that my son is 6 months old, I noticed a patch of bumps on his cheeks. I use Eucerin on his face and hope/pray that he does not have to hide from the world like I am.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I haven't tried the Neutrogena's lotion but I am trying Eucerin repair lotion, which sounds similar. So far nothing has happened.
    Keep us posted with your results. Eucerin tends to be greasy so I may have to switch to something else.
    It seems to be an on-going battle, but lets keep fighting this!

    The Neutrogena Skin Smoothing product is not greasy at all and has a rather nice scent to it. I am not sure if men would want to use it as it tends to smell a little like perfume.

    I will keep you posted on the results. As the bottle says, I am going to give it 2 weeks and see what happens.

    I wish the treatment wasn't so much of trial and error!

    says that the Neutrogena Skin Smoothing Body lotion w/ SPF 15 is a new product targeting KP that will be out in Sept.
    I'll be curious to see what the main ingredients are!

    Actually, I purchased Neutrogena's Skin Smoothing Lotion this past weekend. I live in a "Target Market" for new products and usually are able to buy things before others can. It cost $8.99 for a 8.5 oz bottle at Target.

    The ACTIVE ingredients are: 7.5% Octinoxate, 5.0% Octisalate, 2.0% Oxybenzone

    Does anyone know anything about these ingredients?

    I have been using the product for only 2 days and have noticed that the redness is reduced - but only minimally. The bumps are still there but I am going to wait the entire 2 weeks before deciding if this is a "keeper."

    I looked on the Neutogena.com site and could not find this product??? Maybe because it's not in stores yet it's not posted on the site?

    tcb77 -

    I am guessing that you are right. Due to the fact that the product isn't "officially" released to the overall market for sale until Sept, they are probablly waiting until that point to have it on their website. Not sure why - maybe to keep all of us KP sufferers from calling! hee...hee.

    Yeah thats the reason, I guess KP really makes us kinda pushy. Thats because no one pays any attention to us!

    I went to Walmart today and found it! I bought 2 bottles at $8.49 a piece. Look in the facial care section where there are facial cleansers, toners, and face creams, that's where I found it. It says right on the front of the bottle "bump minimizer".
    Good luck! Wish me luck too and I will keep everyone posted.

    I was waiting for the 2 weeks to be up before I commented on Neutrogena's latest invention but since you have asked, here it goes:

    The bumps on my legs are much improved after using the lotion after a shower. I rub it in pretty hard although the back of the bottle says to lightly massage it in. It has not done ANYTHING for the bumps on my thighs unfortunately!

    My arms are more stubborn and the bumps are still there although the redness is greatly reduced.

    As we all know, what works for one doesn't necesarliy mean it will work for another.

    Good luck!

    For me, I would rate it a 5.5 on a scale of 1 - 10.
    It worked in some areas but not others.

    I have been using this product for about a week now, and I can say that it has greatly reduced the bumps on the back of my arms. They had actually gotten worse this summer than usual, but so far this product has helped. I have been using it in the morning and at night.

    I've had good luck with it!

    I've been using the lotion twice a day with GREAT results. I've been using it in combination with Neutrogena's Skin Clearing Body Scrub with a buf puff in the shower once a day. About 90% of the bumps on my arms are gone and I've been using it for about 2 weeks.

About KeratosisPilaris.org

Keratosis Pilaris is a very common benign genetic skin condition. KeratosisPilaris.org is the definitive resource for KP on the internet.

KP appears as rough or bumpy skin on the back and/or outer sides of your upper arms. The severity of the symptoms varies from person to person. You can also manifest it on the face as a natural blush (known as KPRF or Keratosis Pilaris Rubra Faceii).

This community is composed primarily of KeratosisPilaris.org community members, but is also open for those interested in the topic.
