    Verified Purchase

    I recommend this product

    I've had KP for most of my life and been able to manage more or less with Cerave SA lotion but after having a baby last year my KP was worse than ever before. After 2 uses I could notice the smoothing solution working. After seeing how well this worked I then ordered the buffing bar and my arms are smoother than I can ever remember them being. (I have been using both products 2x a week. The KP is not 100% gone, but like 85% gone so far. To say I am impressed is an understatement.)

    Who would you recommend this product to?

    Anyone with KP, mild or severe.

    I recommend this product

    If you have any areas of rough skin or uneven texture on your body, this will help smooth them. Some of the rough patches I've been dealing with for years and have never had any success with have finally shown results with this gel. A small amount goes a long way, as does using it on a regular basis.

    Hello silky soft skin! I absolutely love the quick to absorb formulation of this product. My legs have never felt softer and even prevented any post shaving bumps. Don’t walk, run to get this in your body care routine!

    Who would you recommend this product to?

    Any skin type since this formula has skin soothing ingredients! I gave pretty sensitive skin and didn’t experience any irritation from the lactic acid

    First off the bottle is much bigger than I expected! Love that. It also is fragrance free and the application is easy and soaks into skin nicely! I’ve used this product twice already and I think it is helping a lot with my dry skin on my legs, and also with my KP. I can’t wait to see what my skin looks like after two weeks of use it’s going at such a good rate right now.

    Holy grail. Have been looking for a product like this and been through so many different oils, scrubs, gels etc for stubborn ingrowns. I use this a few times a week and it's super gentle but very powerful. *This person tested the samples for three weeks pre-launch.

    I recommend this product

    I really like the ingredients in this gel and although I think it'll probably have more results after long term use I do notice my skin is generally brighter and softer in the areas I use it. Would be improved if it were even slightly stronger. *This person tested the samples for three weeks pre-launch. Soft Services products were provided as compensation for their honest review.

    I recommend this product

    The smoothing solution overall was great. It was like a primer for the skin. At times it did feel sticky and I think it would work best if you give it time to absorb before applying moisturizer. I noticed that my skin had a whitish residue when I used the gel and moisturizer together. The gel definitely needs time to absorb. *This person tested the samples for three weeks pre-launch.

    Did not like the consistency. Doesn't soak into skin and leaves it feeling weird. *This person tested the samples for three weeks pre-launch. Soft Services products were provided as compensation for their honest review.

    I love that you can apply this daily to trouble areas.
