Most Helpful Positive Review Works great when done properly
I have dealt with skin bumps on my arms and legs my whole life and a coworker suggested this DERMAdoctor exfoliant because of the physical and chemical exfoliating properties. You apply the scrub on dry skin with dry hands and you let it sit for a couple minutes to let the chemical exfoliant do its thing. You'll feel a slight tingling sensation but it's not painful. Once enough time has passed you can wash the scrub off in the shower and it'll melt away. If you add water when you apply the scrub it neutralizes the chemical exfoliant and it will not work so dry is a must. It's really made a difference in my skin texture.
Most Helpful Critical Review Does NOT Help With Ingrowns!
I've suffered from really terrible ingrown hairs around my bikini area after waxing for years. I've tried so many things and nothing has worked. After reading tons of reviews, I was really hoping this would help. I know it technically is not for ingrowns, but a lot of reviewers said it works for that. I've been using it for three weeks and haven't seen any difference in my ingrowns unfortunately. I will say, though, that it makes my skin feel super smooth after every use. However, between the high price and the absolutely terrible scent, I can't say this product has been at all worth it for my particular problem.

Chicken skin from Stl, Missouri
Used this and it worked great with diminishing my KP spots. My only problem is that it comes with so little, for the steep price. If I could get a bigger amount for this price, or close to it I'd keep using it.
Takes time but definitely works
I from G
This is my 3rd time buying this product and I love it! Been using it for about 3 months now and my chicken skin is slowing going away. Smells like vinegar but it's tolerable. I use it every other day.
Jonieu from San Diego
This is a must if you have body acne or like I have KP. Those annoying ugly bumps on the backs of the arms, on my thighs, butt and when I was younger on my face. This literally smooths my skin and the bumps are going away. It does take time for them to completely disappear but it works! I use the scrub 2-3x a week. Try not to get this in sensitive areas like into the armpits, since most of us shave it will cause irritation. I also use a great lotion afterwards. Seals the deal!

I normally make my own at home natural scrubs and lotions, but I got this in the mail today and tried it immediately. Rubbed on dry skin upper arms, lower arms, elbows, hands then waited 20 minutes or so and rinsed it off and it was magically soft and smooth... This sruff is no joke. I have chronic dry and overworked and also very sensitive skin.... I get rough patches on my elbows consrantly and millions of tiny red bumps on my upper arms (that I've had since puberty) that lessens a little sometimes with a really really clean diet. My hands also get really rough from work. I've been looking at KP Duty for years and years.... and always thought it's just too much to spend on an expholiator I could make at home. Well I am wrong on that... 100% and will be a life long customer. Lately I haven't been able to cure my dryness or rough patches on my own no matter what I use and gave it a shot and was BLOWN AWAY. All women with severe skin sensitivity/chicken bumps/dryness should try this. The bottle is HUGE it will last a long time. I am giddy with joy. It cleared almost all of it in one go... Also the smell may put off some, but I don't have a problem with that. What I look for is quality and effectiveness.
Works but expensive
Mary from York, PA
This chemical and physical exfoliator works. But it is so expensive!!! It helped my KP on my arms and legs very much so. But I can replicate this product for much cheaper. I can use a sugar scrub under ten bucks and then apply a cheaper chemical exfoliator (like an AHA or lactic acid) mixed in with moisturizing lotion.
Gaby from Texas
I'm 35 and have had KP on my arms all my life. I previously used Glytone but stopped using it after the formula was changed. This product is great at smoothing the surface of my skin. People with KP need to realize that there is no cure or magic product to completely and permanently remove KP. As with most skin regimens, if you stop treatment, the skin will return to what it was before. Consistency is so important when trying to manage KP. The key is to make the skin smooth and remove build-up so that your skin will look less red, less bumpy, and less inflamed. This product, paired with the lotion, does just that. Love it!
100% got rid of my bumpy skin
Vera G. from New York
I have severe kp, bumpy hard pimple like bumps, all over my thighs, butt, and upper arms and this scrub made my legs SO SMOOTH and SOFT its unreal!
I found it works much better if u let it sit on your skin for a few minutes
The smell isn't great, almost vinegary, but for the way it works I can't complain, so i hope they never change the formula!!
The price is pretty dang high (I stock up when it's on sale) but if I run out b4 that I think it's well worth the price
Does not work
Eddieboyph from North Carolina
Finished one tub. Skin feels smooth but that's it.
Smoother skin through scrubbing
smoother skin from Wyoming
This is awesome! While it can be messy and there's a tendency to want to mix it with water to get it to spread over your skin more easily, wait to do that until you get into the shower. It leaves my skin soft and with a visible improvement in the skin. The smell isn't that great, kind of smells like paste.
Dee from California
I bought this when it was on sale hoping it would help with KP on my arms and legs but the smell is so terrible that this was unusable for me. Would have returned it but I missed the window.
Sharon from Seattle
I tried it for a while but didn't seem to help at all.
Only thing that has worked for my KP
Amanda from Powhatan, VA
I've had keratosis pilaris on the backs of my arms and on a little patch above my knee for as long as I can remember, and I've always been so embarrassed and hated it!! I've tried everything possible, including other scrubs, all kinds of lotions, soaps, etc. And then when I saw this was on sale, I had to try it. And let me tell you, after only a couple uses, I wanted to cry, because I saw immediate results. It's not 100% gone, but there is a noticeable difference, and I've got a ton left in the tub to use.
The smell is a little difficult to get used to, but I imagine it isn't perfumed because of its purpose. I can ignore it for the simple fact that this works!!
it does take of dead skin, but not the bumps
koko from victorville
I have kp. I thought it was going to get rid of the bumps, but after using it multiple times I've notice it only takes off the dry skin that kp produces. not the auctully kp itself . it's ok, but the tree hut does the same thing and is way cheaper .
JJ from Virginia Beach
My husband has pretty bad chicken skin on his arms and this helps make most of it go away. He rubs it in, then let's it stay on for 10 or 15 minutes. Then he will rinse it off in the shower and his arms will feel immediate smoother
caitlyndanielle from Fairbanks
This is such an amazing body scrub! Very fine but my skin feels soooo soft after! It does have a not super great smell but I don't even care. Highly recommend!
Love love love
CaliT from California
Love this product. Love Ulta. I do not love the wasted space in packaging. One huge box for a small item I thought this was ridiculous.
Better than a baby's butt!!!
Pharrah from Earth
I have KP on the top
I have KP on my upper arms almost all my life. I've tried so many products to try and get smooth skin and nothing seemed to work. I saw this on sale one day and thought why not! FYI a little goes a long way. I put it on my dry skin rubbing vigorously right before I get into the shower. I do my normal routine of face, then hair. I used the steam of the shower to moisten my arms then scrubbed them again. After that, I rinsed it away to reveal the softest skin I had ever had on my body. The scent is off putting, but I deal with it if I get the same results after each use. The next time I used it on my feet, worked like a charm!!!
so far so good!
Nancy from Ohio
I've used this 3 times in about 10 days. It smells bad, but my bumps have gone down and skin is smoother. I will continue use and write another follow up review later.
KP Cured after 20 years
Samlamb5 from California
I have had KP almost all my life (28 years old now) and have tried EVERYTHING under the sun- to no avail. I was hesitant to buy this because of the price, but ended up getting it half off when it went on sale recently. I have been using it for a week or so and I kid you not, my KP bumps are almost all gone and the redness on my skin/pores where the bumps were, are diminished by at least 50%!!! This stuff is amazing! Don't let the price scare you! I will continue to buy this in the future, even at full price!
SSmith2 from Illinois
This scrub smells terrible and also was not a completely full jar upon opening it. I only applied it to my legs and elbows because of the smell-just being honest. I did not have high hopes for this one. However, I was pleasantly surprised after rinsing. Very smooth as if I had just waxed my legs the night before. I use a body scrub consistently twice a week. This was not the normal just soft and moisturized feeling. It was different. I do get acne on my shoulders, back, and legs every so often. Usually during the warmer months but also due to sweating from daily workouts. I did not let the scrub sit on my skin as I should have the first time I used it. I will make sure to do so going forward. I believe this scrub will help keep my skin clear and smooth. So far so good!
only thing that's ever helped my KP!!!
Kris from Michigan
Oh my goodness! I just used this for the first time ever and had such good results I feel compelled to write a review (which I never do). I've had KP on my arms for as long as I can remember. I've used the nasty creams the dermatologist prescribes and I've even used the dermadoctor KP duty cream and have never seen results like I have with this scrub. After ONE use, there are multiple areas of my arm that are 100% BUMP FREE! I have not felt or seen my arms bump free since I was a child. I am so impressed. I'm so excited to see how they will improve with more use! Definitely worth the cost if you have KP!!!
Shannon from Michigan
Used this twice and I can't belive the difference already. Skin still has a few bumps but definitely smoother.
Pricey but worth it!
Rdorion from Coral Gables, FL
I have KP on my upper arms now that appeared after many years of "remission" which was a huge bummer. It prevented me from wearing anything but long sleeves to cover my embarrassment. This product with the combo of some Salicylic/Glycolic Acid wipes I use daily have been a game changer. This product does have a bit of a mayonnaise smell that's pretty strong but it disappears after you rinse off :) worth it!! If you have KP and are fed up with the bumps, give it a shot. Will definitely buy again.
Rmls from El Paso, Tx
This product is amazing for anyone who has KP!
Use as directed and you WILL get results. Highly recommend using with their lotion.
Used others before this
Anon from Anywhere
I've used the lotion, the peel pads and I just purchased this and I am head over heels for it! The peel pads and lotion did nothing for me, but after two uses my KP has DRAMATICALLY decreased!! Highly recommend this product first!
