    This is the most terrible system I'd ever used in my life.
    • Avid user of retinoids+AHA for years. I started off with 0.1% adapalene when I was 13 & switched over to 0.025% Retin-A when I was 16; I gradually moved up to 0.05% and eventually to 0.1% within 3 yrs. When my insurance stopped covering my tretinoin + lac-hydrin lotion, I found this and thought it would be a great deal. This stuff left me with severe burns and rashes! And no, this is no typical "purge" so PLEASE save yourself the heartbreak and get some generic Retin-A+Amlactin. Ruined my skin.

    A+ Combo
    • This product combination really makes a difference in the way the skin looks. I use both of them on my neck, arms and chest. I use the AHA at night and the Retinol treatment in the morning and my skin has never looked better. Even my dermatologist noticed the difference in the way my neck looks - it is smooth, tight, supple and I have no lines at all. As far as the skin on my body is concerned, I found the Holy Grail!!

    Incredible Duo
    • These products are brilliant. For me skin revealing body lotion lasts a long time. I only use it on my feet -- occasionally on cuticles. It is too drying for anywhere else on my body. That makes the price reasonable for me. I just started using retinol body cream, which my skin tolerates, and its exceptional. It does run out faster & price point is high for Paula. However, comparable products are only available at the high end of cosmetic labels & are much more expensive.

    Good products but strange pricing
    • Inexplicable Sale price. If you buy these two products separately right now (AHA body treatment and Retinol body treatment), it adds up to $40.15. If you buy them paired up here, PC is charging $45.90. What on earth sense does this make? If anything, you would think there would be a discount if you buy a package of products, but no way should it actually cost more. The products themselves are terrific. I use both daily and love the improvements.

    Thanks for your review! Currently, the RESIST Retinol Body Treatment is on sale for a lower price than the partner product in the Body  Doubles set. The Body Doubles set is part of our current site-wide monthly special of 15% off. The Retinol Body Treatment is discounted at 30% if purchased separately. So, yes, it's currently a better deal to buy these products separately rather than as part of the Body Doubles set. Currently, our site isn't set up to do split discounts on one bundle of products (i.e. 10% off some products, 20% off another).

    Best Duo Ever
    • I love this duo! It has made my skin super soft and has changed the texture of my legs. I have mild keratosis pilaris and this has helped smoothen the bumps. I also use it for my stretch marks after I exfoliate and I feel like it has helped diminish it as well. It leaves my skin so soft and plump! Love PC products!

    Nice results.
    • I really like this product duo. I use it 3 times a week after showering/exfoliating my body and it leaves my skin super soft. The only draw back is the smell when first applied (goes away quickly) and the expensive price for both products. I could not afford to use this every day. I really think $30 for both products would be a more fair price considering the quantity.

    Love this o
    • I finally found something that I love for my face!!! I have dry skin and was having an awful time finding something to make my skin feel moisturized completely. Luckily I read some reviews where people had commented on using it on the face, so thanks everyone for that!.. I use the moisturizer first and rotate the second step with resist barrier repair moisturizer with retinol. Sometimes I throw resist c15 in between. Loving it!!

    • I am in love with this power duo. I am 48 years old with very dry skin and I did not think that I could have skin that looked smooth, soft, and hydrated. My skin feels so comforted and nourished and consequently, I feel so much better about myself. I am so thankful and delighted with all of the Paula's Choice products I have purchased. I cannot believe that I ever hesitated to start order - truly it is the best thing I have ever done for my skin. Paula is a trustworthy expert!

    • I was dubious about needing to add the Skin-Smoothing Body Treatment to the already very effective Skin Revealing Body Lotion. I gave it a try, a full bottle, and I can't keep from looking at the skin on my legs. I'm certain it must be an illusion but after only about a week, my skin looks more taut, healthier and more youthful. Great news for a thin person approaching 60. I'd encourage anyone who is hesitant to give it a try. Another winning product. Thanks!

What makes Resist Body Double unique?
Daily use of this anti-aging duo 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! Here’s how it works:

Step One: Exfoliate & Moisture
Resist Skin Revealing Body Lotion with 10% Alpha Hydroxy Acid is a creamy, antioxidant-rich, formula that leaves skin feeling beautifully soft, but goes beyond that to exfoliate skin with a 10% concentration of glycolic acid.

Step Two: Firm & Repair
Resist Retinol Skin-Smoothing Body Treatment with Antioxidants utilizes a specialized retinol complex, potent antioxidants, and skin-repairing ingredients to intensively smooth and firm skin all over the body. This silky, concentrated lotion has a rich texture that goes to work immediately to repair dry skin as well as give it the essential ingredients it needs to be silky soft. Soothing emollients and plant oils provide lasting, non-greasy moisture and an instant, healthy glow you'll absolutely love.

Who is the product for?
Resist Anti-Aging Body Double is for anyone concerned with improving and repairing the appearance of dry, sun-damaged, bumpy, or aging skin all over the body. This high performance fragrance-free system is great for all skin types.

DIRECTIONS: Dispense a small amount of Skin Revealing 10% AHA Lotion into the palm of your hand and apply to clean skin. Then, apply a thin layer of the Retinol Body Treatment all over the body or just in the areas as needed. Massage the treatment into your skin using gentle circular motions. For daytime, protect exposed body skin by following application with a Paula’s Choice sunscreen rated SPF 25 or greater.

Resist Skin Revealing 10% AHA lotion may be used on the face, but avoid the eye area. Do not apply to just-shaved legs.

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 Resist 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 Resist 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 Resist Skin Revealing Body Lotion there, too.

I am using Renova/Retin-A on sun-damaged body skin. Is it OK to use this with Resist 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.

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 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.
