Honest reviews


Best exfoliating body wash for beautiful, even toned skin!

I love this stuff- it’s pricey but it’s definitely worth it. This works better than any exfoliating scrub, loofah, glove, or cloth I’ve ever tried. After the first use, I noticed that my skin looked clearer. The skin on my arms and legs can get blotchy and bumpy but after using this my skin was clear and healthy looking. My shoulders were smooth and my skin was glowing. I didn’t even know my skin was that bad until I used this and saw the difference. It contains almost 9% glycolic acid but didn’t irritate my skin at all, although I don’t use it daily… I use it every other day. I definitely recommend using a cheap body wash to cleanse the oils off of your body before using this because the Glytone body wash lathers much better on skin that is already clean, so wash your body with a different body wash first to save yourself some product and money. Another piece of advice: leave it on your skin for about 3 minutes before washing it off. Doing this, I found that I don’t even need the lotion, this body wash works well on its own for me. My skin looks so smooth and even and glowing- I feel like I’m ready for the red carpet! Will definitely repurchase.

makes you breakout

I bought this because of the reviews. I was so excited using it and noticed that the more i use it the more i breakout. The breakout are really big and gross. I will never buy it again.

It works Very Very moderarely

This body wash contains glycolic acid, but a very very low potency, 8.8% is for babies (of course not literally),,,but my point is, this stuff is not strong enough, not for the price. When I wash my body with it, I don’t even feel a tingle. Its suppose to be a GLYCOLIC ACID BASED PRODUCT FOR CYING OUT LOUD!! I would have to go through like 5 of these bottles to get the results of just buying a single bottle of pure glycolic acid of like 20% (and 20% isnt even that strong, especially not for the skin on the body).Its a great body wash,there is no doubt in my mind that it will improve your skin, but the amount of time it would take to see results in combination with how expensive it is, just isnt worth it for me.

I never really knew what these small bumps on my arms and back of thighs were but I have been trying to get rid of them for years. I ran across this product and ordered it based on the reviews. Wow! I used it for about a week and for me all the bumps were gone!! I couldn’t believe how fast it worked. While in the shower i put a small amount in my hand and rubbed it over the area then used my rotating brush (big body brush attachment) to work it in. Spent about 30 to 45 seconds on each area. After drying off I followed up by using amlactin body lotion. It’s been over a month since I’ve used it and I noticed a couple bumps returning on my thighs so I’m going to start using it again. But damn! It lasted so long for me. I’m very happy with this stuff. Perfect timing for summer 🙂 and best of all this little will last a long time since I don’t have to use it everyday

My KP was redder than before!

Made my KP worse actually. I moisturized as followed but the redness in my skin was worse than before. Seems to be a little harsh on the skin even though the exfoliating texture is light.

Does Exactly What It Says It Does

Very good exfoliating body wash. I would suggest that you do not use this every day. If you have normal skin, you might be able to get away with this every other day and if you have extremely sensitive skin, you’ll want to use this every two to three days. Make sure that you do a thorough job of moisturizing your skin afterwards. The ingredient in this product WILL do exactly what it says it will do and WILL exfoliate your skin. Don’t freak out if your skin looks like it is peeling. That’s what’s supposed to happen. If it becomes excessive, leave it alone for a few days and be sure to moisturize.

Works for some things, not for others

I got this to use on the keratosis pilaris I have on my arms and legs. I have a few red bumps on my legs, and a lot of small red smooth dots on my arms. I originally started using this on both my arms and legs, and found that it made my arms MUCH redder. It did, however, help with the few bumps on my legs. So, if you are trying to use this on portions of your body that are already red, I wouldn’t recommend it. But, if you just have a few bumps your trying to get rid of, it’ll work. Overall, I don’t think I’ll buy it again, but I’ll probably use up the current bottle I have.

Helps with keratosis pilaris, follicultis, and small bumps

I have very sensitive skin, and have recently been suffering from a case of folliculitis. I found a dermatologist’s blog that recommended this scrub and a zinc soap, and they have been working really well so far to help clear up my trouble spots.This Glytone wash also works great to help smooth out the bumps you get on the back of your arms (keratosis pilaris).I use it on a Salux towel, and gently scrub my body with it after I’ve done a regular washing. After following this protocol for a few weeks, my skin is getting noticeably softer and smoother, and my lumps and bumps are disappearing.It’s great stuff!

too drying

This is a gel exfoliant with no grains. It does work but I couldnt leave it on for too long or it would dry my skin out and make it feel tight and slightly itchy after the shower. I could definitely tell that it was exfoliating my skin though. If youre going to use it, don’t leave it on too long and don’t use it everyday.I much prefer the glytone oily skin wash though. It’s a lower concentration of glycolic acid so it’s not as irritating and it’s the perfect amount of exfoliation so my skin feels smooth but not dried out. Check it out!

I smell old people

My grandmother’s bathroom ALWAYS smelled like this. Mind you, I love my grandmother and loved her house, but I think Glytone made a really bizarre choice in selecting the scent for this product. I also can’t tell that the wash is doing anything. Save your money and get the Glytone body lotion, which WORKS. Two stars because the product does lather nicely and cleans well, but I can’t say it’s worth the cost.

Staple in my gym bag

I get breakouts from where my workout clothes rub the skin, especially in the hot and humid weather. Glytone body wash is great for my after workout shower. It gets rid of all of the skin inflammation and irritation. I can’t use it every day even in the summer because it dries out my skin too much. I’d say 2-3 times a week max but that’s enough to keep my skin clear. I’ve recommended it to my gym friends and they had good results with it as well. Some even use it on their face but that’s way too harsh for the skin on my face.

excellent body wash

I have a dry skin and getting small bump which isn’t kp but it doesn’t itch. This product arrive two day early before the delivery date. It arrive in bubble wrap and it doesn’t have any leak from the bottle. It is in great condition. I use this on the day it came and i notice how soft and smooth it feel. My dry skin became least dry after using this for first time. The bottle are hard to squeeze it out but need to shake it down to get the soap out.

Leann Tire Hill, PA

great for KP

I’ve been using this body wash on my upper arms for KP for the last few yrs & it definetly does work. Would recommend for sure.

Fern Fairfax, CA

Hate it

I used three times before I had to stop. I dried out my skin o much I had white gray patches all over my skin! No amount of lotion could help. it lasted about a week and my skin did peel of but it was disgusting. I wanted to send it back but I lost the little box it came with and the refund policy says to send it back with what it came with:( so wasteful

Works well as long as you use it carefully

Like many other reviewers, my reasoning for purchasing this product is because I have keratosis pilaris on my arms. I tend to just live with it most of the time, but if I have a special occasion coming up then I will use this (and the lotion) religiously. I was gearing up for my wedding, so of course I used this! It works well as long as you use it regularly, but be careful! It is not for those with sensitive skin and I have burned myself with this stuff on more than one occasion. It works well for acne also, so I would occasionally use it on my chest or back, but that skin is significantly more sensitive than my arms so I would tend to burn myself if I used too much/too often.As long as you’re careful, this stuff will work wonders. KP is a pain in the behind, but Glytone definitely helps manage it.

Ok initially.

I had hoped based on the reviews it would clear up some body acne from workouts and hormones. It did seen to help initially but no long term solution or cure. For the price I really expecte it to be. Bummer. . It does smell nice though.

Earlene Steelville, PA

Really works!

I love this product. I’m 25 weeks pregnant and have developed acne on my back. I researched all of the ingredients in this body wash, and everything seemed to be safe for pregnant woman, so I gave it a shot! It’s really helping to dry up my acne and prevent new acne from developing. I would say it’s somewhat drying, so I’m not sure I would recommend using daily if you have dry skin. However, my hormonally crazed skin is quite oily, so I use it 2x a day, and am quite pleased with the results.

Only thing that has worked on my KP

I have severe keratosis pilaris on my upper arms, and this product is the only thing that has worked! I usually buy the kit with the lotion included as well, but the lotion lasts way longer than the body wash so I just bought the wash this time by itself. I just scrub my arms with the wash and apply the lotion once each day, and my arms look much better! The price on Amazon is also way more affordable than what I pay at my dermatologist’s office.

I have extremely sensitive skin and every soap dries me out. Even the very expensive ones. So far this doesn’t and i feel so smooth after

Leeann Plover, IA
