It is time for another review of a Paula’s Choice product – this time it is Resist Retinol Skin Smoothing Treatment with Antioxidants a.k.a Resist Retinol Body Treatment. The description of the product on their site is as follows:
Resist Retinol Skin Smoothing Treatment with Antioxidants utilizes a specialized retinol complex, potent antioxidants, and skin-repairing ingredients to intensively smooth and rim 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. This product is for anyone concerned with improving of dry and/or aging skin all over the body because it helps skin repair itself so it functions in a younger, healthier manner. Ideal for addressing the delicate skin on the chest and neck area.
My review: I actually use this product on my face as well when I feel it needs a bit of pampering. I have combination to oily skin, meaning that some areas are oily and some are dry so I have to be very careful about what I put on my face because I don’t want it to appear even oilier while making sure I cover the dry areas. This cream is quite rich so I only use a small drop on my whole face. It spreads nicely and evenly, it absorbs well, and it leaves the skin feeling velvety. It moisturises it nicely and it repairs the skin as promised. As mentioned before, my skin is partially oily so I don’t use this product every day but a couple days per week. I’ve only bought a sample version of this product as I wanted to test it out before splashing out on the 118 ml bottle, but I will most likely buy the whole bottle when autumn/winter comes and use it on my whole body as my skin gets quite dry (being around radiators does that to you).
