Goodbye Chicken Skin, Hello Paula’s Choice:
I like to think I am fairly confident in my skin however, one thing has always plagued me…
my chicken skin!
I’m sure there is a more accurate name or term for it but I refer to it as ‘chicken skin’ because the skin is red, rough, and bumpy and honestly it looks like chicken skin.
Anyways, my chicken skin has always been a source of embarrassment and it has always been a huge insecurity of mine. To be honest I never really noticed it on my legs as much as the back of my arms [until I started using the lotion] and saw how much smoother my legs looked and felt. I have tried so many other products like AmLactin, coconut oil, every unscented body lotion, you name it. Nothing has worked… until now!
THANK YOU PAULA’S CHOICE!
So I have to admit, I think I messed up the process a bit [if there is a correct process] because I accidentally started with the Resist Skin Revealing 10% AHA Body lotion. I applied it every day [sometimes twice a day] to my entire body. Literally my entire body – arms, legs, stomach, back, chest. I was not playing around.
I noticed a change in my skin’s complexion the next day. [Yes, seriously] I was SHOCKED, floored, speechless. How could this be possible? I had tried product after product for years and nothing ever worked. I couldn’t believe it so I kept going because I wanted to see what would happen if I used the lotion every day for 30 days. I’m happy to say I have found a hidden gem for us prone to ‘chicken skin’ or for those who just want seriously flawless, silky skin [but keep reading it gets better].
After one day of using the lotion I decided to take a 30 day before photo. I knew the results were going to be out of this world and that I was going to have to share this with you. The bottle lasted a bit longer than the 30 days and I used it everyday. Once my bottle ran out, I immediately panicked. I could not chance my skin going back to the way it was so I checked my stash and was so relieved to find I had another purple bottle.
Fast forward a day or two and I noticed my skin and the bumps were almost non-existent. I didn’t understand. How could this get any better and also why did this lotion smell a bit different? I checked the bottle to find I had actually grabbed the Resist Weightless 2% BHA Body Treatment. Again, I immediately panicked but then I read the description…
“Exfoliates to reveal younger looking skin, eliminates rough, bumpy skin, antioxidants reduce environmental stress”.
A lotion designed to combat CHICKEN SKIN! What?! How did this happen? Was this my lucky day? Year?! I was ecstatic so I kept going for another 30 days but decided to take another ‘before’. I needed to see what the end result would be.
This brings me to today. I feel SO comfortable in my skin and my complexion looks and feels the healthiest it ever has. The bumps are virtually gone and my skin is so soft. Seriously like a baby’s booty. I get constant compliments on my skin [something I never thought possible] and I am so excited to share my before and after photos with you.
Whether you have ‘chicken skin’ or not, I cannot say enough good things about these body lotions. The Weightless 2% BHA Treatment exfoliated my skin beyond belief and the Skin Revealing 10% AHA Body Lotion hydrated my skin, improved my texture and tone, and boosted my collagen production. I think they are perfect for all skin types and I am honored to be able to share them with you through this post and the giveaway. So without further ado, here are the before and afters:

It’s safe to say I am officially a forever fan of Paula’s Choice. Ever since I started using their products in August my skin has become so unbelievably clear. If you caught any of our recent skincare posts you know I have been raving about their face products as well. Any ‘texture’ on my face has almost disappeared and my skin is super soft with less fine lines and wrinkles. Their products have drastically improved my skin.
