Changed My Life!
Posted 8/29/2014 by Nancy
I purchased my first set in 2008. I've had KP my entire life and I thought the bumps were ingrowns from shaving. I actually spent a decent amount of time with tweezers pulling the hairs out. DO NOT DO THAT. In 2008 I went to a dermatologist and my life changed. Not only did the skin on my face change significantly, I also asked my derm about the bumps on my arms and legs. She told me it was KP and recommended this kit. Within a few weeks of use, the skin on my body transformed. The bumps on my arms are completely gone and the skin is super smooth. There are still some bumps on my legs, but they are no longer noticeable and the skin is very soft.
Don't use right after shaving, it burns! I would recommend using the wash before shaving and don't use the lotion for that day. Definitely don't use it on a baby (I read that in someone else's review). I would suggest consulting a dermatologist before using this if you're not sure if you have KP or not.
Works for acne too

My dermatologist suggested I use this for the acne and dark spots I get on my back. I do not have KP. It works really well. I can tell a huge difference when I run out and take too long to order more. I was tired of not being able to wear what I want because of bumps. It does burn for the first little couple weeks when you put it on, but works really well.
After 1 week..I can see improvement

While reading all the posts, it is evident that this works for some and not others. For me it works!! After one week I see tremendous improvement in how soft my arms are and alot of the redness has faded. I do realize that I will have this the rest of my life, but to find a product that works so that I am not so self conscious about wearing short sleeves is great. This is a great product and I would definitely recommend it.

Loved the product, so worth the money, my skin feels smoother than it has in years. Only took a couple of weeks of consistant use to see and feel results. Warning don't use directly after shaving though, it kinda burns.

Amazing!!!! After years of dealing with bumpy skin on my daughter's arms we are so excited to find this product. After a short time of use the results are wonderful. Thank you!!

I ordered the KP kit and for the first time in more than 15 years the skin on my thighs, bottom, and arms is smooth!! This is an amazing product. I use the body wash on my entire body and my skin has never looked better. Everything seems clearer. I even use it on my face. My pores have disappeared and my fine lines are disappearing before my eyes. It feels amazing to not be embarrassed about how my inner thighs look. I also have Glycolix. I adore it. I sometimes alternate using them back and forth. I also use the Glycolix wash with the Glytone lotion and vis versa with stellar results. I know the stuff is spendy but to have smooth skin with years old discoloration and bumps disappearing in less than 4 days of use it is worth it.

Hi, I don't have KP, but I'm thinking I might try this for dark spots and marks left by my constant picking at any little bump. Has anyone used it for this?? do you think it will work or should i look for something more targetted toward my specific problem?
Posted 8/11/2010 by Isabelle
I had little red dots on my arms and was too embarrassed to go sleeveless. I used this product, and they're basically gone. Now if I could just find something that will get rid of all the stretchmarks.... One thing I should mention...if you're using it in the shower, be careful that none of it gets into any of your...sensitive areas by mistake. It's pretty strong stuff and, well, that was painful.

I started with the KP Kit about 15 years ago, while working for a Dermatology Group as their medical esthetician. I am still using and recommending it! I haven't found anything better for removing those pesky bumps! My own KP is LONG GONE!! (after about 2 weeks into it!) Not recommended for the face.
Does it workk?

I have Keratosis on my face and arms, wondering if this product will work. Thankyou!

Being a 48 year old woman who spent most her life out in the beautiful sunshine, age was starting to show on my legs. Ugh!!! The texture of the skin on my legs looked more like aligator. Ah, but within just a couple days of using the two part combo, my skin is so smooth and soft! I truly love it. My daughter complains of KP, so I'm buying her the kit too.

I have been using this product by recommendation of my Dermatologist for just a few days, and my skin has transformed overnight....I have suffered for 15 years with my skin changing with rough red dry patches and bumps....my skin is not completely healed yet, but man what a change in just a few days. I am a believer in this product.
this stuff ROCKS!

KP after delivery of my daughter
Posted 3/25/2010 by Anonymous
I thought that KP Showed up as a kid and faded as an adult.....then heard it was genetic and you have it all your life. Im confused on this. But after the delivery of my daughter it showed up immediately! My doctor said it was hormones and eventually go away. I had her in June and wore long sleeve shirts or quater inch sleeves. well, 3 years later it hasnt gone away and ive had to self diagnose this..but thank for you guys reviews. its helped!
the best !

I have been using the KP kit for a week now. Holy smokes it works!!! I have had Kp for as long as I can remember on my arms, butt, legs, and thighs and have even seen the dermatologist. I have tried loofahs to expensive RX creams and nothing worked. I have seen great improvement in just a week. I also have eczema and this is also helping to remove the scaly dry patches on my legs. Overall A

I have KP since i was a teenager and had it on my arms and on my rear. I found about this product and used it for three months straight, and they eventually faded.

I had KP on my upper arms my whole life and thought I was the only one. This lotion has cured it for good. Yes, you must use it every day or the bumps will come back. The most important thing is to exfoliate in the shower with a scrub like Tree Hut sugar scrub-- the lotion loosens the bumps but you must scrub them off! A body wash won't do it. There is peeling in the beginning but that's good! The bumps are coming off! If there is irritation just use less or skip a day. Once the bumps are gone it takes only a small amount of lotion for maintenance.
Ooohh so good

I have been KP kit for a month now. It really made my skin so smooth and soft. It lessened the appearance of my goose bumps on my arms and legs. I guess if I use it for a very long time, it will make my skin even smoother. Though it's quite pricey, all I can say that its worth it. I bought the kit a month ago, I still have almost half a bottle coz I only use a small amount. YOU GUYS SHOULD TRY THIS PRODUCT!!!! It's the best lotion and body wash I've ever had in my whole life.
Wow, it actually works
Posted 6/24/2009 by Anonymous
I was skeptical since nothing seems to help me...my skin looks great. Of course I'll need to keep using it since there is no 'cure', but it is working...just in time for summer

I haven't tried this product yet, but after reading the testimonials, I'm going to give it a try. I truly had no idea how many people this affected. I felt like I was the only one! I hope I have the results that some of you had. It would be amazing to wear a tank-top again!

By putting cover up on my arms and legs, make the keratosis worse, or not a change at all

The peeling is regular. The symtoms of keratosis pilaris is making your skin dry and doesn't peel as often as other people. If it is treated your skin often starts to peel.
Posted 4/21/2009 by Kaley
I've been using the glytone product for a month and I love it. It made my skin smoother and the bumps are not as dark as they were. But my skin is starting to peel. Should I mess with it or leave it alone? Will it scare me if I peel it?
works for kids too

I got this product for my 9 y.o. who has got mildmoderate keratosis pilaris on her legs and arms. In three weeks of daily use, the dryness and redness are gone, the skin is soft; the bumps can still be felt but if you don't know they are there you won't see them. At first my daughter complained that it 'stings' but she never had redness or other lasting reaction. After a few application, the stinging wasn't bad anymore. You do have to be careful to avoid fresh scratches or scrapes though. Since KP is genetic and doesn't really go away, this looks like a good product to use on and off for maintenance.

I bought this product about 2 weeks ago and it did wonders! my skin used to be very dry and i had a bad case of KP. I thought my skin problem would go away, but it never did. so i did some research and found this product! it made my skin so smooth and no bumps! its a miracle!

i have a 12 year old daughter that suffers from KP on her arms and face. We tried lots of different lotions, but none seem to work. We havent tried this one yet, but we want to know if it is safe for her to use?
Posted 2/9/2009 by alyssa
omg this was so awesome! i really loved it. my doctor said i have KP really bad and after using Glytone for 3 weeks i don't have it at all. it looks like i never even had it in the first place. THANK YOU SO MUCH GLYTONE I LOVE YOU!!!!!
I suggest you buy this product!

I am getting ready to order my second bottle of the body wash today. Although my bumps have not disappeared completely, they have lessened, they do not itch anymore and there is no discoloration. I haven't even made it half way throught the bottle of lotion that came in my kit, so it is a great deal to order both of the products. Be careful with the lotion, it will burn the skin if you apply to much in one area---but yet it gets rid of 95% of my problem! I am a believer!
for babies--change your laundry detergent!

My son had the same condition when he was a baby and when I switched to Dreft Laundry detergent they went away. His probably was probably a reaction to the soap.

I started using this product over a month ago and my keratosis paleris is worse than ever. My skin is softer but the bumps on my arms have not changed what so ever. I was very disappointed considering how much I paid. I have kept using the product, hoping it will one day work, but I can't forsee that happening.

Do NOT use this on your baby!!!! Way, Way too harsh and it can be unconfortable for even adults. Talk to your Pediatrician!

I've been suffering for years from Keratosis Pilaris, and for the longest time I had been misdiagnosed from doctors and dermatoligists regarding my condition! I have lived with mild KP my whole life, but after the birth of my daughter and the changes in my hormones, I became afflicted with severe KP all over my arms. In addition to the KP, I have severe scarring from picking and scratching. With the Glytone Keratosis Pilaris Kit, after just a few days of using it, the results were so unbelievable to me that all I could do was cry. Finally some relief! I wore a tank top for the first time in years, and felt secure and confident that I wouldn't receive gasps of horror from strangers over my condition! Very seldom does anyone even notice, and my skin has become so smooth, the scarring is fading, and I am so happy to have found such an AWESOME product! Thank you!

I just purchased this product 3 weeks ago after reading all of the reviews I was a little skeptical but I thought I should at least try . I have had KP my whole life it first started just on the backs of my arms and legs and now it covers my torso about 80 % , I have been to dermatologists and was told there was NOTHING i could do!! I even had a doctor laugh at me and said it would only get worse ! ( JERK !) Nonetheless I would not give up , so I happened upon this product and I tell you this is the most amazing thing I have EVER used in the 3 weeks it has made my skin soft , and I no longer itch or peel it will never take away the bumps that now just look like freckles , but I feel that this has changed my life for the better and would recommend this to anyone out there it really works and I thank them so much for caring about people with KP

This product is fantastic. I have been suffering w/KP for years and even prescription products have not helped. The combination of the body wash and lotion work like a dream. I feel like I can show my arms again and people will not ask me what is wrong with them. Thrilled w/this product!

My daughter is 12 and is starting middle school. She has had KP since she was 4. We have tried so many different products and now I am holding for the next available operator to purchase this miracle product! I will hope for the best!

I have had keratosis pilaris on my upper arms for years now and I have finally found a product that really works! My arms are smooth now and I'm not embarassed to wear short sleeves or tanks anymore. I highly recommend this product!

I don't normally write reviews on products, but this product is amazing! I have tried many products from well known beauty sites and have seen minimal or no results. I finally went to the dermatologist and they recommended this product. Within a week, I saw a vast improvement, I am no longer embarassed to wear short sleeve shirts! I just recommended this product to two ladies in my office!
I can't wait to try it

I'm so sick of being asked if i have acne on my arms or if I'm cold because it looks like i have goose bumps. I'm going to come back and write a review to let y'all know if it works.

I suffered from KP for quite a long time, it was so bad that my cousin's son thought I had chicken pox on my arms! Finally a new dermatologist sold me this kit and within a couple of weeks the bumps were gone! For me, I still have slight redness but I am very happy with the results. Highly recommend this product!

I have been using this product for 2 months on the top of my arms and I can say it has done wonderings. I have spent the last 3 years feeling insecure about the rashes on my arms, hating to wear short sleeves, tanks, etc! This summer is great I have practically no bumps! Definitely try it!!

I have had KP on my arms and legs for as long as I can remember. After about a week of using the body wash and lotion my skin is the smoothest it has ever been. The lotion is a little thick to apply but it is very moisturising. It is winter where I am and in addition to the KP, the skin on my legs usually gets dry and scaly. This has not happened since I started using the body lotion. I can still see the red dots but I think over time they may fade with continued use.

I've suffered from KP for a long time! I purchased Glytone and was pleasantly surprised that the bumps went away, however the redness didn't go away 100%...I ran out of the product and haven't used it for 2 weeks...well the bumps are slowly returning! So I am back to buying the Glytone! I really envy people with smooth arms!!!!
works for me

My skin is much smoother and softer with a reduction in the red bumps! Did the person below even try the product? Don't knock it til you try it.

I have had KP since I was 5 and no other cream has worked as well as this one. I also referred to my skin as Lizard skin because of the bumps! not anymore!! It really helps the smooth the skin and decrease the bumps ( of course u can still see i have red bumps but it's not as noticeable n u can't feel them anymore!!!)...Just be careful to stop using the lotion if u'r gonna be in the sun..i never burn n it turned my arms red ..my fault tho for not reading the warning on the bottle!..

I have suffered with KP since I was a kid, though we had no name for it back then. Lots of pointy, red blotchy bumps. Nothing has ever helped - no lotions, not scrubbing with an exfoliating pad, nothing. THEN - I try this stuff! After TWO applications, there was a noticeable difference! My skin was MUCH smoother and the red blotchiness was fading. I couldn't believe something could act so quickly, but it did, and just continues to make my skin look better and better. For the first time in my life, I'm not embarassed to be wearing sleeveless dresses. I'm not so sure the body wash is really necessary, though. It's only on your skin briefly then washes off. I think it's the lotion that does the trick, and you can buy that separately. I've also used the lotion on my rough feet, and it's been helping them a lot as well!
Can't live without it!

I've probably tried every product possible on my arms and legs, and this stuff really does work. It keeps the bumps from coming, so I don't pick at them. Totally worth the money, just have to use it every day or every other day.

This product keeps me free of unsightly red bumps and has the added benefit of keeping chest and back acne away. I love it and highly recommend it at this great price!

I had bad KP on arms, legs and bum but now it goes un-noticed. KP caused me a great deal of unhappiness and made me paranoid and weiry of my skin and image. I purchased this duo set from a skin clinic at a higher cost and after using it for about a week, about 5 days out of 7 days, it made a real difference to my skin. It help calm the KP and took away most of the redness. It has made me feel happy about myself and my skin goes un-noticed. Recommended A++

Long time KP sufferer [calves & thighs]. Received 1st shipment Oct 2007. Having read other reviews / suggestions, limited myself to 3x week max. Results within 2 weeks - wow - kp 90% eliminated [therefore only rating of 4]. And like other reviews, my skin is so much softer now. One more thing to pass on to potential customers - did not require large amount of either product - 2 months later & both bottles are 1/2 full. This is a good value considering the other $20-30 bottles of AHA products that did nothing/nada. But if you still are wary of parting with $55, put it on your holiday wish list [unless you really need another sweater...]
It really works !!

When i first got this product i didnt think it would work because i tried everything, but this product really works. In the beginning when using the cream you'll notice more bumps, and your skin will be peeling thats because its bringing all the bumps out, and giving you new clear skin, so dont worry and continue. It also slightly burns, but only for a few minutes. 3 weeks later i really noticed a difference my skin was smoother and the bumps went down i didnt have as many bumps as i did before. So i'm continuing this product. I reordered more and I highly recommend this product.. its the BEST !
