Reported Results
Benefits:   It was helpful in reducing the severity on my life-long extremely dry, flaky, itchy skin. It was recommended that I be certain to apply it directly after a shower, when the skin still retains some of it's moisture from the shower itself. This is true for all lotions, but seemed particularly helpful with the Lac-hydrin. Unfortunately, though it was more helpful than many lotions I've used, the benefits did not warrant the higher price of the product. Ultimately, I've found BETTER results with the much cheaper Eucerin and even Curel moisturizing lines.
Side effects:   During the 6 months during which I used the Lac-hydrin, I didn't experience any negative side-effects. I was using it during winter months, so I don't have any feedback to offer on sun-sensitivity. I didn't experience any additional skin irritation that lessened my interest in the product. I simply moved on to other products because of the price.
Comments:   The Lac-hydrin was applied topically to all parts of my body (expect my face) twice daily. My dermatologist recommended that one of the applications be directly after my shower. The skin will retain moisture from the shower for a bit, and the application of the Lac-hydrin will help to keep it there. I would reapply to dry skin again before bed.
