Additional Information

Why is it different?

RESIST Retinol Skin-Smoothing Body Treatment melds key anti-ageing ingredients normally seen in facial moisturisers into a silky-textured, lightweight, and thoroughly hydrating body lotion for all skin types. It is designed to gently give skin the transforming power of pure retinol to help diminish the appearance of uneven skin tone, alleviate dry skin, and rejuvenate the feeling of soft but firmer-looking skin.

What does it do?
Uses a specialised retinol complex and potent antioxidants to intensively smooth and soften skin from the neck down. This silky, concentrated lotion, energised by the power of retinol, goes to work immediately to hydrate dry skin as well as give skin the essential ingredients it needs to look younger. Soothing emollients and plant oils provide an instant, healthy-looking glow you’ll love seeing and feeling.

How to use
Apply a small amount to clean skin. May be used daily for all-over smoothing, or applied as a spot treatment where needed. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 15 or greater. If irritation occurs, reduce frequency or mix into your favorite moisturiser (without retinol). If irritation persists, discontinue use.

    Comments about Resist Retinol Body Treatment - 120 ml:

    I have been using Paula's products for ever and ever and am usually totally satisfied. However, I can use this Retinol Body Treatment for the body only and not, like some customers suggested, also for the face. The rancid smell is totally off-putting. It's bad enough when I use it on my neck as the smell wafts up. Does no-one else have this problem? Perhaps I received a bottle from a bad batch?

    Comments about Resist Retinol Body Treatment - 120 ml:

    I bought this product as I get great results from using retinol and consider myself a retinol addict. It's the best ingredient for my skin and was very excited to see Paula's Choice had a retinol for the body. Upon the first application I could see a difference and when I woke up the next morning my skin was so hydrated and the rednesss I sometimes experience from Rosacea on my chest was non existent. I now use am and pm. If you are looking for an anti aging product for the skin on the body then I highly recommend this one. My skin looks firmer and I finally can take good care all over, not just for my face neck and chest.

    Comments about Resist Retinol Body Treatment - 120 ml:

    This is a fantastic product. I use it on my face and body when I travel and it saves both time and space.I would give it 5 stars except that I agree with the customers that say it should come in a much bigger container. Much bigger. While a little goes a long way, it really doesn't go far enough.

    Comments about Resist Retinol Body Treatment - 120 ml:

    This is a great find. So much better than any body lotion I've ever used. I use it on my legs (maybe 2 pumps) and arms (1 pump each). Believe me that's all you need. It is not the same as slathering large pump fulls of body lotion all over your body, so don't expect to do that with this product. I've been doing that for years with different products and have never had these kind of results. Smooth soft skin after just a couple of uses. I am 58 years old with sun damaged skin.

    Comments about Resist Retinol Body Treatment - 120 ml:

    I bought this product specifically for my legs. Was hoping it would make them smoother and get rid of red marks and dry skin due to shaving. Unfortunately I used the entire bottle and saw absolutely no difference. Would not buy again.

    RESIST RETINOL SKIN-SMOOTHING BODY TREATMENT

    By Andrea

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Resist Retinol Body Treatment - 120 ml:

    I am very happy that I purchased this product. I use it over my entire body. However, due to the size of the product, I mix it with a simple body moisturizer that comes in a larger volume. I am still able to achieve baby soft skin all over my body even by mixing this product with a less expensive, but highly rated (on Beautypedia) body lotion. Very impressed! Will definitely continue to purchase!

    I love this stuff

    Comments about Resist Retinol Body Treatment - 120 ml:

    I use this every morning and night over my upper arms and shoulder and skin shin area. I use a pump on my feet as well in the AM. I have used this for the past two months. After using PC AHA my skin was no longer dry and this stuff made it glow. The bottle design ensures stability. It?s a great price and even if it went up I would still buy it.

    Great moisturizer!

    Comments about Resist Retinol Body Treatment - 120 ml:

    I used this body treatment in combination with the RESIST Weightless 2% BHA Body Treatment & had AMAZING RESULTS! My skin is feels SOFTER to the touch, is noticeably firmer, and looks better!! I use it neck down, on skin that experiences seasonal dryness but is fairly normal with acne on my arms and back. My only complaint is that this RESIST Retinol Body Treatment does not come with enough product to be used as a body moisturizer.
