    KP? Use the 2% BHA body treatment!
    • I had KP all over the backs of my thighs. Used 2% BHA after my daily shower for 2 weeks and KP significantly reduced. After two additional weeks, KP is gone! Use the BHA instead of the AHA for KP!

    Amazing
    • My skin is now exfoliated about as smooth as a babies bottom. A few things to note though: 1. It has a slightly weird smell that's reminiscent of olives (I don't like olives), but it wears off quickly and is nowhere near as offensive & nauseating as AmLactin. 2. This isn't as moisturizing as it probably could be. 3. 7oz is way too small at this price.

    good
    • After trying a couple of samples which I really liked, I bought the full size product. Compared to the samples, the full size has a strong smell I don't really like, and I always feel like I want to rinse my palms after applying it on my body... it's too creamy. But otherwise I like how it makes my skin feel, and I'm looking forward to smother knees and elbows. I just wish it came without alcohol and perhaps with some odor neutralizing ingredient.

    Hello, and thank you for contacting us! The good news is that the alcohol used in this product is from a class of alcohols known as fatty alcohols, which are good for skin!

    Impressive
    • I am fortunate enough not to have any major issues with my skin, in fact, I always thought that the skin on my arms and legs was pretty soft. This product proved me wrong! I apply this product before going to bed and wake up with silky smooth skin. I did find that it "tingled" a little the first time I applied it but a reduced the amount I used by a little and voilà! no more problems. Also, heed the advice on the packaging: DO NOT apply to freshly shaved skin.

    Itches!!!
    • I really wanted to like this product. I needed something like it and I use all the PC products on my face with no problems.I used it on my arms,which after years of my being outdoors and apparently not as conscientious with sunblock application as my face, are not as smooth as I would like. My arms itched so badly that I woke up scratching at them until they were red. I do use the BHA2% on my face because of mild rosacea but I didn't think it would be a problem on my arms. Guess I was wrong!

    Thanks for your review! Sounds like you had an allergic reaction to something in this body lotion. Please contact us so that we may be of further assistance. Also, we wanted to point out that the product in question contains alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) glycolic acid, not salicylic acid (2% BHA, or beta hydroxy acid) that you mentioned you could use without issues on your face. We have a BHA body treatment that may work beautifully on your arms!

    No luck- does opposite
    • I had high hopes for this lotion from the reviews but if anything it made my red bumps worse. How is that possible? It didn't feel drying at all, and had more luck when applying marajucan oil to my back/chest. (I am a firm believer DRY skin can cause blemishes even worse than clogged pores. I wish i wouldn't have spent the money on such a disappointment.

    • This product popped up when I was browsing facial products! I ordered it because of the high AHA%. i was surprised when it arrived marked body lotion. I have used it on my neck area and I will have to reorder facial lotion. Thank goodness for free shipping!

    Didn't work for me.
    • This makes me break out BADLY. Same with 1% BHA gel. BUT the Resist Smoothing AHA (5&10%) samples I tried seem to work, 2% BHA Resist Weightless Lotion is GREAT, and 2% BHA liquid is really hit-or-miss: sometimes it makes my skin perfect, sometimes it makes me break out. Paula's Choice, I can't figure out which AHA/BHA products to use/combine! Because about 60% of them seem to make my skin break out, and I can't for the life of me figure out why. Is there an ingredient I might be reacting to?

    Quick and visible results in KP treatment
    • Well, my skin is yet to be "smooth, unbelievably soft, evenly-toned" as promised in description, but my extra-stubborn KP is definitely getting less visible. The only drawback is that effects seem to be not very lasting. Should I skip it just once, KP is back instantly. I guess it's a price for being forgetful. But a travel-size package would be nice to have - this one is not allowed in cabin luggage, which is a problem for a treatment one has to use daily or, better, twice a day.

    Switched to BHA
    • Good Product in terms of texture and the ability to "almost" work on my KP. This product could most definitely help KP on others, but for me after using the whole tube and applying twice a day it got my KP 50% cleared. It's obviously working- but again, not to my standards or for my stubborn KP. The BHA on the other hand with the same applications took care of my KP in a week. Trial an error. By no means an ineffective product, just not for my me. Good to have options! Thanks PC!

    Buuuurns
    • This stuff burns! I admittedly have somewhat sensitive skin but I would not recommend this concentration for anywhere that has thin skin (i.e. face, chest, neck, etc.). It even burns like the dickens when I use it on my back. My husband accidentally put it on his face one night and never made that mistake again!

    Foot Magic
    • I have tried many products and treatments on my rough, dry, calloused feet. This product WORKS. After applying at bedtime, my feet are very smooth in the morning. I use another lotion for moisture, but this product is incomparable for roughness. It has also made much improvement on the KP on my arms and legs! I refuse to be without it!

    Feet Like Butter
    • I've been using skin revealing lotion for a long time. Here in LA we never wear stockings, so my feet really take a beating. As long as I use every other day the cracked skin on my heels is history. It is great for feet. Although it works brilliantly on my cuticles, it is just way too strong for skin anywhere else on my body -- the tips of my fingers literally peel if I don't wash them after using for cuticles. However, added the retinol cream to my routine, & now my whole body is taken care of!

    LOVE THIS!!!
    • I LOVE this stuff!!! I used it for a few months and it completely eliminated my keratosis pilaris. After I stopped using it, the bumps returned so I cannot WAIT to get more. I bought a bottle of it and it lasted for about 2 and a half months. I only used it on my upper arms (since that is the only place I have keratosis pilaris) and it lasts a while. LOVE IT!!

    I'm a believer.
    • So, I've had KP since I was a kid. I know that nothing works for everyone, but this is working for me. For reference, I've used amlactin, those awful coal tar ointments they used to prescribe in the 80s, loofah scrubbing, salt/sugar scrubs, dry brushing, coconut oil, vitamin E, salicylic acid ... but almost two weeks in with this I'm really seeing a difference. I have KP on my legs and butt (awful, just awful) and since I have been using this my skin is soft, not irritated & less red.

    best underarm treatment!
    • I know its kinda weird and it's really not meant for underarm. But it really works as a deodorant. You will still sweat but no smell at all. The best thing is my pits now is soft and smooth coz of exfoliation. After a month of using it, i noticed that my underarm is whiter now! So unexpected but very effective!!! Ill stick to this forever!

    • I have been bothering by K.P for decades. Thinking the poula's choice is treatable for KP, I tried both 2% BHA and 10% BHA but seen no magic result as I read. So am very ????? if it works for realsies.

    Just what my dry feet needed!
    • I love this product. I have dry feet with a lot of dead skin buildup. I was using a scrub, and it just wasn't doing the job. I tried this product, and within 2 days my skin looked healthy and the dead skin buildup was gone for good. (Still used scrub, but it came off so much easier.) The lotion is not greasy, soaks right in to my skin, and has no noticeable scent to me. This is all my poor feet needed. Try a sample and see what you think. Good size for a body product also.

    Best solution for KP!
    • I have had KP since as long as I can remember, and have tried almost everything with no luck. I started using this product a couple months ago, and I feel like I have new skin! It will burn if you have any open cuts (don't use on your legs immediately after shaving!) and the smell isn't the greatest, but it's definitely worth trying if you have KP.

    Kinda disappointed :(
    • I'm pretty disappointed in this product. I had high hopes that it would resolve the KP I've had on my arms since my teen years. I've been using it for almost 2 months & haven't noticed any significant difference in how my arms look. They feel a bit smoother, but I still have many brown/redish dots on my arms from the KP. Maybe the BHA lotion will perform better, but I'm hesitant to spend another $25-ish on a product when this one didn't work so well. I love Paula's Choice, just not this product.

    Thanks for your review! Some cases of KP respond best to AHA (glycolic acid) and some will respond best to BHA (salicylic acid), so it would be well worth exchanging this product for our Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA. Please contact us; we're happy to arrange this for you!

Key Ingredients: shea butter, glycolic acid, vitamin E, green tea, vitamin C, grape seed oil, allantoin, willow bark, glycerin

Product Ingredients:

Water, Glycolic Acid (alpha hydroxy acid/exfoliant), Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone (silicone slip agent), Glycerin (skin-repairing ingredient), Glyceryl Stearate, Stearic Acid, Cetyl Alcohol (thickeners), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) (emollient antioxidant), Sodium Hydroxide (pH adjuster), PEG-100 Stearate (thickener), Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (stabilized vitamin C/antioxidant), Tocopheryl Acetate (vitamin E/antioxidant), Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract (anti-irritant), Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil (non-fragrant plant oil/antioxidant), Camellia Oleifera (Green Tea) Extract (antioxidant), Salix Nigra (Willow Bark) Extract, Allantoin (anti-irritants), Butylene Glycol (slip agent/stabilizer), Xanthan Gum (thickener), Disodium EDTA (chelating agent), sodium benzoate, phenoxyethanol (preservatives).

DIRECTIONS: Apply a small amount to clean skin. May be used daily for all-over smoothing, or applied as a spot treatment where needed. Apply this treatment first when using with an additional moisturizer. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 25 or greater. Do not apply to just-shaved skin.

Sun Protection Advice When Using Any AHA Exfoliant: Resist Skin Revealing 10% AHA Lotion contains 10% glycolic acid, an ingredient that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and the possibility of sunburn. Always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 25 or greater every day. When outdoors, wear protective clothing whenever possible, seek shade, and avoid prolonged sun exposure.

How is Paula's Choice Skin Revealing Body Lotion with 10% AHA different from Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel Exfoliant? Do I need both?

The main differences between these exfoliants are that the Skin Revealing Body Lotion is in a creamy moisturizing base loaded with anti-aging ingredients while the 8% AHA Gel has a fluid, gel base that’s built around water-binding agents. The concentration of glycolic acid is the other main difference, with the Skin Revealing Body Lotion containing 10% AHA and being preferred for use from the neck down. Skin Revealing Body Lotion is great for treating dry, rough, sun-damaged skin on the body, as well as increasing firmness and improving skin tone for a more youthful appearance.

Can I use Skin Revealing Body Lotion with 10% AHA on my face?

Probably. If you have used AHA products (formulated in an acidic pH range to allow for exfoliation) on your face without incident, you should be able to use Skin Revealing Body Lotion there, too.

I am using Renova/Retin-A on sun-damaged body skin. Is it OK to use this with Skin Revealing Body Lotion with 10% AHA?

Some physicians/dermatologists advise against using glycolic acid at the same time as tretinoin due to the potential for increased irritation and topical side effects (such as stinging or flaky skin). Other doctors feel that an AHA product enhances penetration of the tretinoin into the skin and the extra anti-aging ingredients are a plus. You can experiment with both options to see which one works best for you. You may apply the tretinoin product in the evening and apply the Skin Revealing Body Lotion as part of your morning routine, followed by an effective sunscreen rated SPF 15 or higher. You may also apply both at the same time, starting with the AHA and then applying the tretinoin product. If you experience increased redness, prolonged stinging, or flaking skin, discontinue using Skin Revealing Body Moisturizer over areas where tretinoin is also applied.
