Paula’s Choice Resist Retinol Skin Smoothing Body Treatment, €30.90

Retinol and its sister Vitamin A derivatives have been shown to improve some 125 different skin issues, including sun damage, acne scars and even cellulite, so it is as least as useful in caring for the body as it is the face. 

It is also a mild, gradual exfoliant, so keeps skin soft without threatening its natural moisture barrier. 

Paula’s Choice has blended the star ingredient with several other antioxidant extracts in a fragrance and alcohol-free formula. 

My only issue is the cost of this product, especially as each pump bottle contains enough cream for only ten days. 

However, similar products are typically more expensive and not so well formulated.
