Additional Information

Why is it different?

RESIST Retinol Skin-Smoothing Body Treatment melds key anti-aging ingredients normally seen in facial moisturizers 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 specialized retinol complex and potent antioxidants to intensively smooth and soften skin from the neck down. This silky, concentrated lotion, energized 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 30 or greater. If irritation occurs, reduce frequency or mix into your favorite moisturizer (without retinol). If irritation persists, discontinue use.

    For several years I have had dry patches on my arms that I unconsciously pick at... My skin looked terrible! I noticed an improvement with this lotion right away! No rough patches, just smooth looking skin!

      Comments about RESIST Retinol Skin-Smoothing Body Treatment:

      So I have acne roscesea and this product is amazing. I noticed great results with the 1% retinol so I got this moisturizer for my face to use with it. It's unbelievably good. . My skin is calm. Flare ups are gone. I apply before bed and in the morning my skin looks like a dream. I know it's a body cream but as a nighttime moisturizer, it's the top! If I'm not exhausted this is my regimen: cleanse with moisture boost. Toner is skin recovery. Exfoliant bha 2 %. (Sometimes moisture boost cream for my eyes) Then 1% retinol. And last this retinol body cream. If I'm tired I cleanse with moisture boost and apply this retinol cream. That's it. My skin still looks great whether I go the whole nine yards or just do the minimum because this cream is fantastic. (To let you know how sensitive my skin is , if I use anything with AHA in it I break out in hives. ) I hope Paula's choice keeps this one around forever because in all my years I've never experienced results like this... terrific!

        I love this lotion. It softens and makes my old skin look like peaches and cream! It does not have a great smell, but it has no fragrance added to it either. I often use a fragranced cream on top if that is what I'm going for. The only bad thing I have to say is that I wish they put it in larger bottles. I use this every to every other day and it runs out too fast!

          Comments about RESIST Retinol Body Treatment - 4 oz:

          I use this product sparingly because of the price, but then when I look at what I spend on my face, this is really nothing in comparison. I use it only on my legs after I shower, while my skin is still damp, to help it spread, and it is hands-down the best moisturizer I've ever used. My legs tend slightly on the dry side, and they're easily irritated from shaving, but this takes care of that, goes on smoothly, and leaves a non-greasy feel. I made my bottle last a long time, but in the end, I'll have to get over it and just use it regularly because it really is the best. I only hope that when I place my next order, they'll have fixed the pump, because it doesn't spring back on its own any more. As for the comments about the smell, I figure that's what you get when something has no added fragrance. I'll take the pure efficacy over a fragrance any day.

          I had high hopes this lotion would help with the crepey skin on my elbows but no such luck. Also saw no improvement on feet, knees, or thighs. I'll stick with my big bottle of affordable lotion.

                  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

                    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!

                    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.

                      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.
