An active body serum that tackles patchy tone and rough texture, leaving the skin smooth and soft.
Evens skin tone and addresses discolouration
Restores barrier for youthful skin
A smooth, even glow from head to toe.
Forget your standard body lotion — this body serum with active ingredients will make a difference to those trickier bodycare concerns. Turn to our lightweight body serum to repair damage from hair removal and effectively hydrate the skin. Niacinamide (vitamin B3) works to even out skin tone, while 5% d-panthenol (vitamin B5) fades stubborn discolouration and prickly pear extract rebuilds the skin’s moisture barrier. All of these ingredients together strengthen the skin and stabilise the microbiome so that you walk with that all over glow.
Because skincare works best when it suits your skin type.
Wash your face with a gentle cleanser and wait 15-30 minutes. Select what you see and how you feel.
D-panthenol (Vitamin B5)
Also known as pro-vitamin B5, D-panthenol is a humectant that increases hydration substantially by attracting/retaining moisture. It can also play a role in visibly reducing facial redness triggered by sensitivity.
Very effective skin-restoring ingredient that can visibly improve the appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines and dullness.
Prickly pear extract
Research has shown that the prickly pear cactus and its flowers are very good sources of antioxidants, many of which have a potent soothing effect on the skin. The pulp, seed, stem and peel of the prickly pear contain skin-beneficial minerals such as calcium, potassium and magnesium as well as trace minerals like manganese, zinc and copper.

Yes, just like all of our body care products the serum can also be used on the face. We encourage you to experiment with which body care product you prefer where.
You don't need enlarged pores to benefit from this product. While niacinamide is helpful for this concern, the main purpose of the serum is to even out skin tone and help build a stronger, healthier skin barrier. Bear in mind that the skin has pores from head to toe and that they can become enlarged anywhere on the body, especially where there are more oil glands (the chest and upper back for example). Pores are just one concern that the multi-tasking ingredient niacinamide addresses.
Yes, in fact niacinamide plays a big part in protecting the skin from sun damage. Plus, panthenol and humectant saccharide isomerate provide soothing benefits.
Panthenol helps the skin maintain adequate moisture levels while visibly improving firmness over time. Its soothing action can also help reduce itchy skin caused by dryness or barrier disruption/dysfunction. In short, D-panthenol is an unsung hero for healthy skin.
Although there is overlap in the key benefits of body care, the 5% Niacinamide Body Serum hyper-focuses on targeting uneven skin tone & texture, whilst enhancing hydration & the skin’s natural repair process. Below are more specific differences: the 5% Niacinamide Body Serum targets uneven skin tone, texture and overall lack of hydration. The 2% BHA Body Spot Exfoliant & Skin Revealing Body Lotion 10% AHA target rough texture, flakiness, dullness and clogged pores. The Skin Smoothing Retinol Body Treatment targets multiple signs of ageing and signs of sun damage, including the loss of firmness.
If you struggle with multiple concerns on your body, it’s perfectly fine to layer these body care products for enhanced results:
1. Start with your exfoliant first on clean skin.
2. Follow with your 5% Niacinamide Body Serum and/or Skin Smoothing Retinol Body Treatment on target areas.
3. Keep your skin replenished, soft and smooth with your preferred body lotion, butter or cream.
4. During the daytime, always finish with Paula’s Choice SPF 50 on exposed skin.
