The Glytone Keratosis Pilaris Kit contains two products and a bonus loofah to help you retexturize your skin and smooth out the bumps. The exfoliating body wash and the retexturizing body lotion are formulated to diminish the unsightly red bumps that form from Keratosis Pilaris. The active ingredient in these products is glycolic acid, which is a popular Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) used in cosmetic products since it penetrates the skin easily.
AHAs exfoliate the skin, so that is why they help to reduce the appearance of red bumps. They basically help remove that top layer of skin that has been plugging up the hair follicles and creating the bumps in the first place.
There are just under 200 reviews on this product and most of them are really positive. People have seen really great results with this product. The reviews are what led me to try it out, and I will share my experience here.
If you have read my post about my experience with keratosis pilaris, then you know that I have it all over my body. The area that I would most like to clear up is my chest, because it is just really embarrassing to have red dots all over my chest. I also would love to clear up my arms, stomach, thighs, and buttocks. These are the areas that I applied the product on, although i do have keratosis on my back as well.
This is mostly a review of the lotion, because the body wash kind of just goes along with the lotion and I’m not sure how necessary it really is. You wash your body and then rinse it off right away, so not sure if it really does that much work.
I will also warn you that if you pick at your keratosis pilaris bumps, the lotion will sting when you apply it. It’s not terrible and shouldn’t deter you from using it, but just be aware that it does happen.
So, regardless of the fact that I didn’t love the lotion itself, I will say that it did work to some degree. It did help smooth out my skin, especially on my arms, thighs, and buttocks. The one issue I had was that the skin on my chest was just too thin and sensitive so it really kind of burned the skin and made it feel really dry and irritated.
I had to stop using it because it was making the skin on my chest too sensitive and dry. I kind of gave up on it too early, because it was working. I probably should have continued using it on my arms, thighs, and buttocks, because those areas were not as sensitive. I still have some lotion left in the bottle, so I’ll probably give it another try.
I did read on a forum that applying the Glytone lotion with some coconut oil or dryness relief moisturizer helps it spread out on the skin more easily and also helps keep the skin from getting irritated. I may try that if I decide to give the product another go.
My recommendation would be to definitely give the Glytone KP Kit a try, because you don’t need a prescription for it. People have had overwhelming success with it, so you may get good results as well. It’s worth a try and you won’t know if it works for you until you try it out. Whatever you decide, good luck! I know how awful keratosis pilaris can make you feel, so whatever you can do to help get rid of it is worth a try.
