Review Overview

Clinical KP Treatment Cloths are a unique way to quickly and easily fight keratosis pilaris (KP), a skin condition many people struggle with. More commonly known as "chicken skin", KP often shows up on the upper arms, thighs, and sometimes on lower legs. The raised, red bumps can become inflamed and itchy, especially when tight clothing is worn or when you perspire. These gentle, alcohol-free cloths are infused with a lightweight, highly-effective exfoliating formula that combines 8% lactic acid with 2% salicylic acid to treat KP anywhere on the face or body.

Each fragrance-free cloth also adds soothing ingredients to skin so you'll see a smoother, more even, skin tone. Lastly, these cloths are a great alternative for those who've found a BHA (salicylic acid) exfoliant isn't enough to keep these sometimes stubborn bumps in check. As with all Paula's Choice exfoliants, Clinical KP Treatment Cloths' solution is formulated within the pH range its AHA and BHA ingredients need to exfoliate skin.

  • Easy-to-use wipes may be used on face or body.
  • Contains a unique mix of exfoliating ingredients formulated within the correct pH range for effectiveness.

Brand Overview

Paula's Choice Skincare At-A-Glance

Paula's Choice Skincare was established in 1995 when best-selling beauty author and consumer advocate Paula Begoun (known as The Cosmetics Cop) decided to develop her own products. Like most of us, she was fed up with products that overpromised results, cost a lot of money, and failed to deliver—or made matters worse!

As a natural evolution of Paula's personal mission to help consumers find the best products for their skin, the line has grown into an extensive range of skincare and makeup products that are formulated to meet the needs of almost every skin type and skin concern imaginable. From acne to wrinkles, oily skin, rosacea, large pores, eczema, redness, dry skin, and on and on, Paula's Choice offers a solution.

Paula's Choice Skincare stands apart from other cosmetics brands. The formulas contain only ingredients that have substantiated, published research showing they are beneficial and effective—so you get visible results. Stable packaging is another feature of the brand, using innovative, opaque, and air-tight or air-restrictive components that keep antioxidants and other light- and air-sensitive ingredients from breaking down. The line is also 100% fragrance-free, which is best for all skin types, especially for those with sensitive skin or rosacea.

Disclosure: Paula Begoun is the creator of Beautypedia and founder of Paula's Choice Skincare products. Reviewing thousands of skincare and makeup products over the past 30 years, both on this site and in her best-selling books, Paula's mission has always been to help consumers find the best products possible for their skin. The Beautypedia Team proudly and unequivocally maintains this commitment. In addition, The Beautypedia Team reviews all products using the same rating standards and criteria, whether it is a Paula's Choice product or another brand.

Why are all Paula's Choice Skincare products rated highly? The Paula's Choice Skincare Team would not launch a product unless it was worthy of a high rating from The Beautypedia Team. Paula and The Beautypedia Team were researching and reviewing products long before Paula's Choice Skincare ever existed and consumers were constantly requesting a skincare brand that met all of Beautypedia's criteria. As a result, The Paula's Choice Skincare Team was created and uses the same research and criteria to formulate Paula's Choice products as The Beautypedia Team uses to review products.

Strengths: All products are fragrance-free; uniquely formulated AHA and BHA products; effective skin-lightening options; toners that go beyond the norm; all sunscreens provide broad spectrum protection; proven anti-acne products; antioxidant-rich serums and moisturizers; anti-aging products that work as claimed.

Weaknesses: Does not offer a complete collection of makeup; makeup shade range isn’t as extensive for darker skin tones; limited concealer options.

wondering about application

As a life long KP person, I was open to trying the cloths. It seems like the right product, but the application seems odd. I'm trusting that the hardly damp cloth is delivering what is needed, right now. I know product development is challenging, but I wonder why this isn't a spray. Or, at least, a smaller, more manageable cloth.

A New Favorite

I bought this product while they were offered at a special price...for that price ($20) I felt they were a good value. I suffered from Kp on my upper thighs and hips, but I also used themas a sort of astringint on my oily facial skin. The bumps when away within 2-3 weeks and my facial skin was less oily and looked more well refined with fewer pores. I use several of her other products: cleansers, toners, treatment creams; and I would consider buying this again at the lower price.

At last......KP treatment that works!

I'd nearly resigned myself to living with KP after trying many treatments over the years but these cloths work where nothing else has. They're easy to use, have no discernible fragrance and leave my skin feeling clean. The results didn't happen overnight, but with consistent use my KP has reduced significantly. With continued use I'm betting that my KP will disappear completely. Thanks Paula's Choice!
