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.

All Paula’s Choice products are 100% fragrance free, clinically proven to be non-irritating, and never tested on animals.

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.

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.

Best body lotion ever! Recover my years wounds in just single bottle and even decease the pigmentation! love it! but the bottle is abit small


Life changing

I have had chronic swelling in my left leg since I was a teen from an injury. If I sit too long, stand too long, or wear the wrong shoes or socks my leg will retain so much and get so tight and swollen. When I bought this moisturizer, I never thought it would change my life, but my swelling episodes are gone. 18 years of chronic swelling, I never knew retinol helped with inflammation (I'm assuming that's the ingredient that's helping me?) but this is amazing. I can never go back. I've tried creams and supplements specifically for inflammation that did nothing! Plus an added benefit, I'm noticing stretch marks I've had forever minimizing. How is this possible!? Thank you Paula again for such amazing products!

Super impressed!!

I have used many retinol creams or different stretch mark creams and this is by far the best. This is moisturizing and easy to use. I saw a different within a couple of days. it does not take them away which is what I know we all want but it does decrease the discoloration a lot! I will be purchasing again and again.

A Skincare Staple!

This is a very creamy lotion which completely absorbs into the skin without leaving any greasy residue. I don't ever want to be without this. Skincare junkies out there - you've got to buy this fantastic product!!!

First impressions

I've only had this for a few days, so can say nothing of long term effectiveness, but it is silky/creamy and a little bit goes a long way. The packaging is the best I've ever seen from PC, with a pump dispenser that makes it very easy to control how much comes out.
