    Great Product
    • I really like this product and would recommend it! I was wondering what percentage of retinol it contains though.

    This product smells bad
    • This product has horrible odor. I suppose it would be OK if applied on legs but I use it on my neck and chest where I have sun damage and I look older than I am in that area. Not looking to add fragrance but considering this is marketed for the décolleté area it should smell better.

    Fantastic!
    • Hands down this is the best body treatment I ever used! Absolutely Fantastic formula! My BHA body treatment and this product brings a perfect result - firm, hydrated and clean Legs! I had very itchy, sensitive skin, red bumps and brown scars all over, but I feel free now :-)

    Smooths It All
    • I bought this for my neck and chest area. I could not believe how fast it improved the texture of my skin. The small bumps smoothed out and my skin looks healthier and brighter. It is not greasy either so there is no reason not to use it under clothing. I am really happy to have found another PC winner!!

    Magic for my elbows
    • I bought it as it is on sale and did not have such high hope. But this one is a winner! I just got myself another one while it is still on sale! I love my elbows now.

    One of The Best
    • I love this body treatment. It leaves skin softened and healthy looking. I even use it on face and neck. I've been using it since April and just ordered another bottle a couple of weeks ago. The real test will be winter, of course, but I'm enjoying this for now.

    Body treatment
    • I got this for my neck and chest, hoping to help lighten some sun damage. It's a lovely moisturizer. I use with the 10% AHA body treatment and don't need any additional lotion for dry skin. It goes on smoothly and soaks right in leaving smooth feeling skin. Not greasy or sticky. It does have a bit of scent, which is unusual for Paula's choice products. I'll write back again in a few months about my sun damage. The pump works well and dispenses a smaller or larger amount as needed.

    Just OK
    • After falling in love with so many PC products, I had high hopes for this one after I started seeing "kninkles" (knee wrinkles) on my legs. Loved the texture and was great for my legs after shaving without being greasy. Unfortunately, even after religious am and pm use for the life of a bottle, I don't see any improvement in the firmness of the skin around my knees. A great moisture cream, but I have used many others with the same results for less $. Bummed.

    The stuff dreams are made of!
    • This is the body lotion I've dreamed of. Scented body lotions give me headaches, some are too greasy & sticky and others have unnecessary sparkles. I've only used this a couple times but omg its amazing. It sinks right in! To the point where ur skin just feels soft & there r no remnants of the lotion left. It makes my skin feel like a baby's bottom! Love that it has anti-glycating carnosine for the body! My only wish is that it also had niacinimide in it to get that benefit for my body skin too.

    Poor Packaging
    • Like this product for legs arms and chest. However they need to correct the packaging. For some reason the pump stops working about half way through. Tried to open the jar but was unable.

    Amazing!
    • I have been using this on my neck and chest for 3 weeks now and I have noticed amazing results. My chest was very crepey due to sun damage and after only 3 weeks it is so smooth! The deep lines on my neck are less noticeable now as well. I also use the Resist Intensive Wrinkle -Repair Retinol Serum on two deep lines on my forehead and marionette lines on my face and they are almost gone! Thank you, Paula's Choice. I will never go back to the previous skincare lines I have used!

    So So results
    • I've been using this in conjunction with the 10% AHA lotion. It's fine on most of my body but on my chest (decollete area) I've experienced red bumps and sandpaper like skin. I mostly ordered it to reduce those "chest wrinkles" you get after you sleep on your side and this isn't helping. My chest just looks red and irritated.

    Customer Service Response
    Replied on: Tuesday, July 29, 2014

    Thanks for your review! Please contact us to discuss this concern; we're wondering if perhaps your chest area got some sun exposure after using this product, as AHAs do make skin more sun-sensitive. Protecting skin daily with a product rated SPF 15 or greater is essential when using an AHA exfoliaint in an effort to have younger-looking skin.

    Shins, knees, feet and hands look younger
    • The thin skin on the tops of my feet and backs of hands looks plumped, the "dents" over my shinbones seem smoothed out, and even the old scar marks on my knees have faded, making my legs look smoother and more even-toned. Love this product!

    • Using this lotion with a 2% BHA liquid, the results on the KP on my arms and legs have been amazing. The dry, rough bumps are almost completely gone, and the scars are fading too. Excellent product.

    LOVE THIS PRODUCT
    • I was beginning to notice some lines across my neckline typical with ageing so decided to give this a try. I'm always skeptical with skincare products and with having sensitive skin I need to be extra careful. Thankfully this was a FANTASTIC choice! The skin on my decolletage and neck has improved after a few weeks of using this cream and I can't recommend it enough!

    Helping with persistent dryness and mild psoriasis on elbow and knees
    • I have finally found a product to help smooth my chronically dry, patchy, mildly psoriatic elbows and knees. I've only been using it a few days and already the difference is incredible. I understand this product is intended as a spot treatment as opposed to an all-over body product, and thus far any spot to which I apply it is rendered smooth, silky and healthier looking. Well done, PC!

    Great product
    • 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.

    Wanted To Like
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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!
    • 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.

    LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!
    • I LOVE THIS STUFF!!! I have always had issues with breakouts and redness on my chest. After I shower, this is the only moisturizer I use on that area - and it makes my redness go down SO much and I don't have as many breakouts. I will forever repurchase!!! Plus its good for anti-aging so its a win - win!!! P.S. Paula's choice has the BEST customer service...my last bottle was frozen (b/c its so cold where I live) and didn't work and they are now sending me a new one! LOVE this company!

    perfect moisturizer
    • This is the perfect moisturizer for my sensitive, dry skin. I can use it on my face or allover my body. I like to use it after a bath. I tried the skin recovery moisturizer but I prefer this as it really moisturizes better, but use the skin recovery cream as an eye cream or maybe when it's hot in the summer. Retinol body treatment is expensive for my usage so I just use it 2-3x wk and other lotions and creams other times that I already have. I also love the skin rec toner and antioxidant serum.

    • I bought this to use on my neck and loved the way it left it so soft! I have a very oily T zone but decided to try it on my face also and absolutely love it! It is never greasy but leaves my skin so soft. This is my go to face & neck moisturizer from now on.

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 does Resist Retinol Skin-Smoothing Body Treatment differ from Paula's Choice Resist Barrier Repair moisturizer?

We combined the skin-beneficial elements of Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer to create a multi-purpose, all-over body lotion that keeps all skin types looking healthy and radiant and feeling soft and remarkably smooth. Resist Retinol Skin-Smoothing Body Treatment with Antioxidants also has a more emollient, creamy texture than Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer.

Each Paula's Choice facial moisturizer has its own distinctive texture and there are multiple options so customers can choose the moisturizer that best suits their personal texture preference, fits their facial skin type/condition, and works well with their makeup.

Can I use Resist Retinol Skin-Smoothing Body Treatment with one of your Super Antioxidant serums?

Yes. In fact, this would be an excellent nighttime combination to use over dry, sun-damaged body skin such as the décolleté area, hands, or arms. Apply Resist Retinol Skin-Smoothing Body Treatment and finish with a few drops of the antioxidant serum that is best for your skin type. We suggest Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum for its boost of stabilized vitamin C, peptides, and anti-irritants.

Can I apply Resist Retinol Skin-Smoothing Body Treatment with the Resist Skin Revealing Body Lotion 10% AHA?

Absolutely! In fact, pairing the Resist Retinol Body Treatment with an AHA or BHA exfoliant like the Resist Skin Revealing Body Lotion 10% AHA will speed your results on concerns like sun damage or loss of firmness, just like the combination of retinol + AHA/BHA would for signs of aging on the face. Apply the Resist Skin Revealing Body Lotion 10% AHA first, then follow with the Resist Retinol Body Treatment.

Can I apply Resist Retinol Skin-Smoothing Body Treatment over Resist Intensive Wrinkle-Repair Retinol Serum?

Yes. If you’re using Resist Intensive Wrinkle-Repair Retinol Serum on sun-damaged areas of your body, it’s fine to apply Resist Retinol Skin-Smoothing Body Treatment on top of it.

Can I apply Resist Retinol Skin-Smoothing Body Treatment to my face?

Although the formula is designed for use on the body, it is OK to apply this to your face, too. It can be the moisturizer step in your nightly skincare routine—and it can be applied around the eyes, too.

Why do you have only a few body moisturizing options and not a range like you do for your facial moisturizers?

We have a small selection for the neck down because skin type is far less complicated and women have fewer preferences for how lotions feel on their body than they do on their face. Therefore, there is less demand for a variety of textures from the neck down than there is from the neck up.
