    Love it
    • I am 32 years old.I have very stubborn breakouts on my back, arms and neck. I couldn't wear strapless top or anything that showed my back, I ordered package when it just came out and thanks to your product I was able to wear strapless dress to a special event without a shame about 2 weeks after using it. Most of my back acne is gone and when the new one about to appear the cloth keeps them at bay, on top of that it makes my skin baby smooth. Thanks.

    Definitely softens skin, but not as effective on my bumps
    • I get dozens of fine, skin colored bumps from ingrown hairs all over my legs and arms. The PC 2% BHA Body Treatment worked super well to treat this, but I was ripping through it so fast (about a bottle/month), I thought I'd give the wipes a try in an attempt to save some dollars. Wrong. As others have mentioned, the wipes themselves are kind of thin and don't hold product all that well. Most importantly, my ingrown hairs are back. I'll return to the trusty 2% BHA Body Treatment ASAP.

    not effective for me...
    • I am 45yo and have had very stubborn KP on the backs of my arms and thighs for as long as I can remember so I was eager to try these wipes. I found this product to leave a strange, sticky residue on my skin. Sadly my mixed race, olive toned skin just does NOT respond to BHA products in these problem areas. Rather, BHA's seem to leave the skin red and inflamed as did these wipes. I have however had much success with the AHA 10% liquid but I must apply it every other day to maintain good results.

    Love it
    • Just as how I love PC’s BHAs so much, I love this as well. I’m not sure about others stating that it’s not enough product on the sheet but I felt that the amount is just nice, not too much and not too little. I use one sheet per day every morning for the less than a month and I’m loving it so far. My bacne have almost, if not completely vanished and my back look the best it has ever been! I feel more confident wearing low back dresses now. Big thank you to Paula and her team.

    Not For Me
    • I have KP on my neck and chest. It is really ugly so I was very eager to try these treatment cloths. At first I used the cloths twice a day. The result was terrible open red sores on my neck and chest. I thought perhaps I was using the cloths too frequently so I let the sores heal and then used the cloths once a day. Once again, terrible ugly sores. I have returned the cloths.

    Thanks for your review and we're so sorry you had such a bad experience with these cloths. Sounds like your skin is sensitive to one or more of the ingredients they contain. Please feel free to contact us, as we have other exfoliant options for those struggling with KP.

    Great for body use
    • I was broken out badly on my face, shoulders and back from hormone replacement therapy. Nothing seemed to clear my breakouts until I started using Paula's BHA products. Using a cotton ball or pads on my back was difficult, but these are great for use on your body. My back, chest and shoulders are completely clear now! Definitely going to stock up on these so I am never without them!

    Pretty good
    • It's only been a couple days but so far it works at least as well as the 2% BHA lotion in a more convenient package. I like the cloths but I feel like they are either too thin to hold enough liquid, too dry, or both. I store them dispensing side down as recommended.

    Thanks for your review! Please contact us at your convenience so we can discuss our various optoins for treating KP as well as find out what else you're using. For example, using bar soaps or bar cleansers can make KP worse and form a film on skin that keeps treatment products from working.

    Please consider this formula in a liquid or lotion form!
    • As my title suggests, this product would receive a 5-star review if it were in a liquid (perhaps with a spray nozzle) or light lotion formulation. I can tell that the BHA and lactic acid combination is more effective on my keratosis pilaris than BHA or glycolic acid on its own; however, even with storing the package dispenser side down, there is very little product on the cloth. It is difficult to cover both of my upper arms with one cloth, and at this price, it should absolutely be able to!

    Awesome For Facial Use!!!
    • These do bunch up when trying to use on the body, but still do an effective job. However, where they really shine I feel is for facial use. They are easy to use and eliminate the need for a pesky cotton ball/pad. They left my face soft and smooth!!!

    • This is the first product I have bought from Paula's Choice and boy does it work. I went to my dermatologist and I was told it was "chicken skin." Nothing she could do for me. I stumbled upon this site and researched the official term of Keratosis Pilaris. Thank you for your research and sharing it. I have only used this product nightly for a week. I already see a big difference and I am feeling beautiful again. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

    Mixed bag (pun intended)
    • First, the formula is superb--5 stars! These make my skin super soft, better than either the BHA or AHA body formulations. I love that this is a very simple, very effective liquid formula. The cloths are decent, too. HOWEVER: there is hardly any product on the cloths. They are almost dry, and I completely disagree that one cloth covers large areas, because they become bone-dry very quickly. Given how expensive these are, that's truly disappointing.

    Thanks for your review! If you find the cloths getting dry, what you can do is store the package with the dispensing side down. This causes the fluid that's absorbed into the cloths near the bottom to move back toward the top of the stack. Let us know if this tip helps!

    • I have always been self conscious of the KP on my arms. I started using the Resist 2% BHA, but ordered these when I saw them. I figured it couldn't hurt to try them. I am THRILLED with the results. I use the wipes every day and follow up with the lotion (not all the time), and I have seen dramatic results. Thank you! I hope you continue to make these forever!

    • These wipes are a great alternative for the lazy! I used to use the BHA lotion, but it was getting too hard to reach places and took to much time to apply/dry. These wipes are much faster and work much better. I noticed a reduction in my bacne and reduced redness on my arms. The only thing is they do tend to bunch up during application, so I just fold them. I only need 1 for my arms, back, & bikini line. Leaves a slight tacky feel, but my skin is very soft. I use them right after my shower.

    A KP formula that works! Wipes? Not so much.
    • This formula is great, better than the BHA/AHA. My skin is super soft and so much less red. Some bumps but not as severe as usual! But I really don't like the wipes. They are not very moist and bunch up/roll during application. I have KP all over my body + acne so I need like 3 wipes each time. I know you say 1-2 is enough but it really isn't. I don't really understand wipes as I'm not treating on the go. Thank you for a KP product!! But a lotion formula would make more sense, please make one!

    Used alone, these wipes do nothing for KP
    • Long-time, faithful PC customer here. Used these for mild KP on my upper arms morning and night for the past three weeks, followed by the 10% AHA body lotion at night. So far these wipes have failed to "get rid of those little red bumps and reveal smooth, even skin" as claimed. Two stars since they do decrease the redness *slightly* for a couple of hours tops. Overall a barely noticeable improvement- disappointed in this product.

    Great product!
    • I've been using these for close to a month so far and I love the results. My arms are so much softer and the redness and bumps are much less noticeable. I've even discovered that these cloths are a convenient way to prevent ingrown hairs after shaving. Irritation is reduced and my skin stays nice and exfoliated. The cloths aren't as wet as I was expecting but I found that there's enough liquid on each one to wipe both arms. My skin dries quickly with a very slight tacky feel.

    • I have been using these night and day for about 2 weeks. Nothing I have tried for my chicken skin arms has ever worked. These have made my arms less red and noticeably smoother. I agree that there is a "tacky" feeling after but I can live with it since it works!

    Not so sure about these
    • I've been using these cloths morning and night for about four days, so I can't comment yet on the effects they may have on my KP, but I will comment on the quality of the product. The cloths are too thin and "roll" when I try to wipe with them. They are much thinner than make-up remover type cloths from other companies that I've used before. They were drier than I expected them to be (as if they had been sitting on the shelf for a while and dried up the way those types of cloths tend to do).

    Thanks for your review! We have a couple tips, but first wanted to mention these cloths haven't been sitting around. They're brand-new and were made recently. If you find them getting dry, though, what you can do is store the cloths with the dispensing side down. This causes the fluid that's absorbed into the cloths near the bottom to move back toward the top of the stack. Next, to avoid the rolling you mentioned, place the cloth over your entire palm and use that hand in a slightly cupped motion to treat skin on the opposite side of your body (example: hold in left palm to treat your right arm and then reverse this for the other side).

    Wonderful results
    • I've been using the KP wipes for over a week now with noticeable results. Skin is noticeably less red and smoother. I've used in the past Paula's BHA body treatment but only got minimal results. The lactic acid formulations dispensed by dermatologists always used mineral oil as a carrier and never absorbed well. But combining the two ingredients together in this convenient wipe is genius. Product is only slightly tacky due to the nature of the lactic acid. Love this product!!

    • I've tried Paula's AHA and BHA products for my back and arm acne, and I did see some improvement. But after just three days of using these wipes, my skin is so smooth and healthy, I can't stop touching it! I even use on my face and the results are fantastic - I'll be re-ordering these in bulk.

    Body Acne is Stands No Chance
    • I have very stubborn back acne. The wipes are easy to use on hard to reach places, and leaves a slightly tacky finish when dry. I went through a couple of tubes of the RESIST BHA Body Treatment, and got good results, but I never used it religiously, so my back acne always persisted. I bought this immediately after it became available and only within a week it's done more for my back acne than a tube of RESIST BHA Body Treatment has in a month. . I only wish this was available to me sooner.

    Paula's products are not expensive!!
    • I read several reviews claiming that PC products are overpriced. I'm confused; most PC products are completely unique and there is NOTHING to compare them to. Many companies offer subpar products in similar categories and charge 3 to 6x more for them. Every single PC product is loaded with good ingredients and makes a difference in the skin. Even my derm asked about my routine. Great products, CS 7 days/week, free shipping cost money. I love Paula's sales and samples, but that's an added bonus!!

What makes this product unique?
Clinical KP Treatment Cloths are infused with a lightweight, highly-effective, alcohol-free exfoliating formula that combines 8% lactic acid with 2% salicylic acid to improve the appearance of stubborn keratosis pilaris (more commonly known as “chicken skin”) anywhere on the face or body. Each cloth also adds soothing ingredients to skin so you’ll see KP-related redness replaced by a more even skin tone.

Who is this product for?
Clinical KP Treatment Cloths are for anyone with mild-to-severe keratosis pilaris (KP). The formula is suitable for all skin types and also recommended for those struggling with breakouts on the body. Excellent for teens struggling with breakouts plus KP!

Sources to support the claims made for the Clinical KP Treatment Cloths

Pediatric Dermatology, May-June 2012, pages 285–288; Immunopharmacology and Immunotoxicology, Volume 31, 2009, pages 277–287; Food and Chemical Toxicology, August 2009, pages 2,142–2,149; Cutis, September 2008, pages 177–180; and http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1070651-treatment.

Key Ingredients: salicylic acid, butylene glycol, lactic acid, Boerhavia diffusa root extract

Product Ingredients:

Water, Butylene Glycol (slip agent), Lactic Acid (alpha hydroxy acid/exfoliant), Propylene Glycol (moisture-binding agent), Aminomethyl Propanol (pH adjuster), Salicylic Acid (beta hydroxy acid/exfoliant), Polysorbate 20 (emulsifier), Boerhavia Diffusa Root Extract (plant extract/anti-irritant), Sodium Citrate (chelating agent), Potassium Sorbate (preservative), Disodium EDTA (stabilizer).

DIRECTIONS: Apply once or twice daily to affected areas. Gently massage over clean, dry skin—do not rinse. One cloth provides enough solution for larger areas. Keep lid closed between uses to prevent cloths from drying out. Follow with moisturizer, if desired. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 25 or greater.

Store at room temperature. Do not flush; dispose of used cloth in trash receptacle.

Detailed instructions on how/when to apply your Paula's Choice products can be found in our How to Put Together Your Own Skincare Routine article.

How do Clinical KP Treatment Cloths differ from Resist Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA?

Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA is a lightweight, matte finish lotion while Clinical KP Treatment Cloths involve a liquid formula steeped into a cloth for easy application. Although both products are for those struggling with keratosis pilaris (KP) and breakouts on the body, not everyone’s KP will respond well to salicylic acid (BHA) alone. So, KP Treatment Cloths contain 2% salicylic acid like the Weightless Body Treatment but they add 8% lactic acid, an AHA ingredient that can also help improve KP and create smoother, more even skin. When combined, BHA and AHA can be the solution some people may need to relieve stubborn KP!

Which one to use? If you’ve tried Weightless Body Treatment and found it didn’t do much for your KP, then definitely try Clinical KP Treatment Cloths. If you’re not sure which one to use, choose based on personal preference: If you prefer a lightweight lotion use our Resist Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA; if you prefer a liquid and the ease of a wipe use Clinical KP Treatment Cloths.

Can I use Clinical KP Treatment Cloths on my face?

Yes. You'd want to use them after cleansing and toning, and in place of your regular AHA or BHA exfoliant. Follow with a sunscreen during the day and serum and/or moisturizer at night.

Will these cloths also work to treat breakouts on the body, such as "bacne"?

Most likely, yes! Breakouts on the body should respond well to the cloth’s mix of lactic and salicylic acids, plus the soothing formula reduces redness from breakouts. For best results, you’ll also want to use a topical disinfectant medicated with benzoyl peroxide—and be sure you’re using a gentle, non-soap body wash.

My keratosis pilaris didn't respond well to glycolic or salicylic acid treatments. Should I try these cloths since they contain lactic acid?

Yes! For unknown reasons, some cases of KP simply don’t respond well to salicylic or glycolic acids when applied separately, but when combined in a product like this, the improvement can be immediate.

Can I use Clinical KP Treatment Cloths at the same time as your other products for KP?

Yes. Because of the manner in which Clinical KP Treatment Cloths are applied, you'd want to use these cloths first, and then follow with one of our other products for KP, such as Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA or Resist BHA 9, which can work well on very stubborn patches of "chicken skin".
