Paula's Choice Resist Weightless Body Treatment

If you suffer from keratosis pilaris, this product could well be what you've been looking for. It's an exfoliator that uses salicylic acid, rather than scrubby particles, to clear blockages from the pores and make skin smooth.

(Background: Keratosis pilaris is a very common skin condition causing little bumps on the outer arms and sometimes the thighs too. Something like 1 in 3 people in the UK have it. I've had this since my teens, and have usually attempted to treat it using scrubs and exfoliating gloves, puffs etc.)

Paula's Choice is a skincare range that focuses on problem-solving and results. The brand is originally from the US and is the brainchild of skincare consumer champion Paula Begoun. The ingredients and formulae are based on skincare research and have a reputation for doing what they say on the tin.

My experience with Resist Weightless Body Treatment has been very positive. It's a very lightweight cream that applies like the sheerest of body lotions and dries almost immediately to leave a smooth finish. It smells faintly fruity.

What's most impressive is that it does really seem to work at clearing pores. I am now 3 weeks into using it after each daily bath. My arms are smoother without the need for frantic scrubbing, and there's no irritation or redness involved.

It's packaged in a satisfyingly chunky squeezy tube with a grey, lightly-metallic finish. You get 210ml for £23, so while it's not very cheap, there's enough here to keep you going for at least a month.

That price-to-use ratio is very important, because - crucial point - keratosis pilaris can't be permanently cured, by this or by any other treatment. You need to keep applying it to keep seeing results. Luckily, using this product is a real pleasure (unlike the endless scrubbing activity I was doing previously). Definite re-purchase.

You can buy it online at the Paula's Choice website
