Comments about RESIST Retinol Body Treatment - 4 oz:
The smell is not overpowering but an almost cloyingly sweet smell. I bought this for the inside of my forearms an can't take it, tried on the skin above my knees too. No luck. I will say I don't have allergies to smells but am sensitive. Disappointed, hoped it would make the crepe-ey skin look better. In the trash it goes
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Truly the best skin of my life!
By Cosmetics realist
from Dayton, Ohio
About Me Brand Buyer
I am 41 and have been under dermatologists' care since my early 20s for rosacea and acne. I started using this product 2-3 weeks ago, and my skin looks better than ever! My mom even commented on how "perfect" my skin looks, and she is rarely impressed with anyone's skin. I use this product in conjunction with Paula's 2% BHA lotion, 10% AHA, Clinical Ultra Rich moisturizer (at night), and Skin Balancing Ultra-Sheer Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 (daytime). My acne is gone, my rosacea has disappeared, and I finally feel confident in my own skin. Paula's Choice is a skin saver!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good on paper; but mediocre results.
from North Carolina
Paula's Choice used to make a body lotion called Slip Into Silk. This is the exact same product (almost identical ingredient lists) except this contains a minuscule amount of retinol. The amount of retinol is too low to make a meaningful difference in my own skin. What I like about this product is that it's fragrance-free (although it does have a non-offensive smell) and lightweight. This is not a moisturizer for serious dryness. It also works as a facial moisturizer, and in that regard it is a much better value (used on the body, this will not last long at all). That said, I don't think this produces results that make it better than so many other moisturizers. The addition of retinol is seductive, but -- for me -- it does not produce any visible results.

About Me Budget Buyer
Got as a gift from my cousin, I use it on my face, it's a great buy for 4oz of product. My skin is very sensitive but I use a little of this mixed with my cerave Sa lotion and my skin has never looked better. Please never discontinue this you will have a buyer for life and it's affordable.

great product, not so great packaging
from New York, NY
I cannot live without this product. This along with the AHA and BHA lotions are staples in my routine. However, the pump broke on me twice. Now it's a problem how I am gonna take out the rest of the product inside the bottle. There's still so much left of it, so much of my money wasted. Hope paula's choice acknowledges this problem and change the packaging, especially since there has been a price increase.

About Me Beauty Conscious
First, I'd like to mention that I did buy this with the intention to use it on my face. I read a Q&A on here where they said the ingredients were gentle enough to use on the face and I generally prefer a richer night cream anyways, so I figured it was worth a shot.I have very very pale skin and (a few months ago especially) was dealing with hormonal acne. Because my skin is so fair the scarring from these were extremely noticeable even with makeup on, but this product has helped lighten acne scars, completely took away my mild smile lines (I'm only 20, but I could see them creeping up on me!), and reduced my pore size. I didn't have any issues with this product breaking me out more, in fact this (along with the skin recovery hydrating mask left on overnight) completely healed any acne I had overnight. I always struggle with fighting acne off because most topical acne medications dry out the skin and leave me with flakey scarring, whereas this product kept my skin nice and moisturized while still fighting breakouts and improving the tone of my skin more and more every day! I also found that makeup glides over this product BEAUTIFULLY! Better than all of the primers I have, however I'll only use this if I am applying makeup to go out at night as the retinol makes you more sun sensitive. I wear SPF every day anyways, but I'd rather not risk it so I keep this product for nighttime use only!

I love this product
About Me Beauty Expert
I am using this product for long time, twice a day after shower and I love it. It leaves the skin smooth but it is consistency what you need to see the results: a firmer skin. PC should consider other packaging, it is the second time I a got a broken pump which is quite annoying (it happened to me too with the 1% retinol). Further it would be nice to have a bottle or tube which you can open to use the rests of the product at the end.
I am unable to give this a fair rating regarding it's effectiveness due to not being able to use it regularly. On my first use, which was only on my arms after showering. 12 hrs later, my husband thinks I suddenly have B.O. Thank goodness we determined it was the lotion & not me! I was not aware of the bad smell due to a sinus condition. I stopped using it for a while. Have been trying it again the past 3 days, only on my forearms & covering it w/ with another nice smelling lotion. Which didn't work, he can still smell it. I can't use it if it makes me smell bad & I'm not aware of it, that is so embarassing.
