If you have dry, dull, or sun-damaged skin from the neck down, this creamy body lotion can make a significant improvement. How? The 10% glycolic acid (AHA, alpha hydroxy acid) exfoliates to reveal softer, smoother skin, and it's formulated at a pH for it to be effective.

Another advantage of glycolic acid is that it helps stimulate collagen, and at this 10% concentration you're likely to reap that benefit. Glycolic acid also helps moisturize and soften dry, rough skin.

Daily use can improve uneven skin tone, as well as potentially eliminate, or at least significantly reduce, keratosis pilaris (red bumps seen on the upper arms and thighs, often referred to as "chicken skin"). The antioxidant-rich, fragrance-free formula goes beyond by adding anti-aging benefit and soothing moisture, so you don't necessarily need to apply this and a regular body lotion or cream.

This body lotion is a win for all skin types, but is particularly well-suited for improving signs of aging on dry or sun-damaged skin showing discolorations and loss of firmness.

Pros:
  • 10% AHA stimulates collagen production and exfoliates for smoother, firmer skin.
  • Moisturizing formula heals dry, sun-damaged skin for a younger look and feel.
  • Improves dull skin tone and helps eliminate keratosis pilaris (chicken skin).
  • Fragrance-free.
Cons:
  • None.

RESIST Skin Revealing Body Lotion with 10% Alpha Hydroxy Acid is a must-have anti-aging solution for dry, sun-damaged, skin on the body. The creamy, antioxidant-rich, formula leaves skin feeling beautifully soft, but goes beyond that to exfoliate skin with a 10% concentration of glycolic acid. Daily use will work to fade signs of sun damage, correct uneven skin tone, eliminate red bumps on arms and legs, and help skin generate collagen for a smoother, firmer, appearance. Your skin will take on a renewed youthful glow and feel remarkably soft! This product is 100% fragrance- and colorant-free, and is formulated to have a pH range of 3.5-3.9.

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.

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.

The formulas contain only ingredients that have substantiated, published research showing they are beneficial and effective. 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.

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.
