Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.This is a beautiful smooth cream that leaves the dry skin on my legs feeling smooth and soothed. I feel that it's really making a difference and I only wish that the bottle were bigger - the amount of lotion seems very low for a body care product.I loved this body treatment, but after using for only one week the pump is broken. The top just flew up one day like on catapult and i couln't put it all together again anymore. Still most of the product left inside with no way of getting it out.. Otherwise great for neck and chest area! Customer Care: Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear about the issue with the pump, we will immediately send you a replacement. Please do contact us any time such an issue occurs.I've used this only a few times so far, but I already like it. It moisturizes my dry, wrinkly ( I'm only 26, but I have 6 deep deep lines running across my neck) skin on neck and chest well and hopeful will give some anti-aging results too! I bought two bottles, so I will give another to my mum as a present and will def buy again when i run out!I've ordered this body cream twice - both times the top had come off at arrival and it's not possible to put it back on properly. The cream is great but the top is a disaster. Customer Care: Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear of this issue. We will contact you for a replacement.I was very much missing a product from Paula specifically for my neck and décolletage, so I was delighted when this moisturizer was introduced. The tiny wrinkles were gone after a few weeks, and the packaging is also quite economical. This product was worth the money spent, I definitely am going to repurchase it!This product was just what I was waiting for because having a smooth nearly wrinkle free face is great but less so if the hands/arms look much older. I use this light smooth creme it on my arms, hands and neck in the evening. It takes some time to notice a difference but it's totally worth it. It must be the retinol. Great since I've rejuvenated the skin I use it on!

Can I apply the Skin-Smoothing Retinol Body Treatment to my face?
Although the formula is designed for use on the body, it is OK to apply this to your face, too. It can be the moisturiser step in your nightly skin-care routine—and it can be applied around the eyes, too.
Can I use the Skin-Smoothing Retinol Body Treatment with one of your Super Antioxidant serums?
This product can be applied to the face. In fact, this would be an excellent nighttime combination to use over dry, sun-damaged body skin such as the décolleté area, hands, or arms. Apply the Skin-Smoothing Retinol Body Treatment with Retinol and finish with a few drops of the antioxidant serum that is best for your skin type. We suggest our Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum for its boost of stabilized vitamin C, peptides, and anti-irritants.
