I've always had relatively rough skin, and I've struggled with keratosis pilaris for years. I took a gamble on this cloth because no loofah or other exfoliator has truly lived up to the hype.
This one TOTALLY does. It works best if on damp, not completely wet, skin, and I usually leave one leg out of the shower stream for a minute before scrubbing with the mitt. You don't have to scrub hard for the friction to pull dead skin right off.
My skin has never been silkier or smoother, and my biggest skin struggle - my keratosis pilaris - is lighter than it's ever been, and I have a feeling I'll never struggle as much as I did before.
Lastly, it is recommended that you use this product with olive oil soap. If you have skin problems, like keratosis pilaris or clogged pore issues, I wouldn't use olive oil soap at all, let alone with this mitt. Very few people can use pure oil soap without it clogging their pores. I use a regular body wash and let it all rinse off before using the mitt. That is just as, if not more, effective than the olive oil soap.
