    Comments about CLINICAL Ultra-Rich Soothing Body Butter - 4 oz:

    I use this on areas of my body that are very dry: feet, knees, elbows, hands etc; I use Josie Maran's argan oil body butter everywhere else. They are both excellent products! As a doctor and product junkie, I have tried them all from the cheap to the ridiculously expensive and these are the two I turn to the most.

      Comments about CLINICAL Ultra-Rich Soothing Body Butter - 4 oz:

      All of the Clinical products are outstanding. I've tried them all, and they are all winners! And I agree with the ladies who find this product to be a multi-tasker! Yes, it is great on elbow and knees, where something richer is called for, but it also works beautifully and is non-irritating, all over my face and neck, even around my eyes. I have not encountered any breakouts when using on my face--just soothing relief! Over the summer months, may find this to be much to much for my face. But during the past winter months, what with the indoor heat so drying to my skin, kept 3 tubes of this going--one in the bathroom, one in the kitchen, and one on my bedside table. I don't detect any odor--pleasant or unpleasant, and i am really sensitive to odors! As far as it being greasy as others have noted, I don't encounter that at all either. This body butter has been perfect for winter, as mentioned, but for summer, maybe it will feel greasy. I fully expect to transition my skin care products according to the seasons. For anyone with seriously dry skin anywhere on the face or body, I would highly recommend giving this a try!

      Comments about CLINICAL Ultra-Rich Soothing Body Butter - 4 oz:

      It's not that this is a BAD body butter, it's just that it's far below the standard I've come to expect from Paula's Choice. It moisturizes adequately. It soaks in reasonably well. The texture is fine (although leaves a "dry touch," almost powdery, which I personally don't like but it's a matter of preference). Other than those things, *yawn*. I expected something much, much better - more in line with the amazing other products I regularly purchase from this company. Honestly, I get much better, deeper, and longer-lasting moisturizing from using just raw shea butter, which is about half the price for twice as much product, and the smell-quality is about the same (which is to say, by no means great, but not horrendous). This body butter does absolutely nothing for my dry, winter-chapped hands; "winter skin" in general doesn't seem to be much improved at all. I got my full-sized tube as a free gift, and while I'll certainly use it up - not until the spring/summer, though - because there's nothing WRONG with it, I would absolutely never purchase this product.

        I use this on my very dry legs and feet after a shower. Sometimes I mix it with a light face moisturizer and use it on my face in the really dry months. Works great that way!

            Not a fan. Too greasy and leaves skin shiny. I also need to reapply after every hand-washing. Aveeno has a better consistency and lasts longer on my skin.

            I HAVE NEVER REALLY PAID ATTENTION TOO MUCH TO THE COMPAINTS OF THIS CREAM SMELLING BAD. BUT I GOT THIS TUBE AND OPENED IT UP , IT HAD A GOD AWFUL SMELL. IT REALLY DID SMELL OF A RANCID OIL SMELL. I DON'T THINK PUTTING ON RANCID OILS ARE TOO GOOD FOR YOUR SKIN. IT SEEMED LIKE IT HAD PAST ITS EXPIRATION DATE. I WILL NEVER BUY THIS BODY BUTTER AGAIN. ALSO MY HANDS DON'T SEEM TO BE MOISTURIZED BY IT.

              Comments about CLINICAL Ultra-Rich Soothing Body Butter - 4 oz:

              This is just a perfect, rich moisturizer: a bargain buy eye cream, hand cream, hair balm, etc. Although it is small in size for an all-over body moisturizer, it is great to mix a small amount into a cheaper lotion to use head-to-toe. Personally, I use this as an eye cream day and night, as well as around any chapped or flaky areas on my face. I also scrunch a small amount into my hair instead of using conditioner (my hair it too fine and my skin is too breakout prone to use conditioner). I'm so happy I finally made this purchase.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was extremely fast, even in horrible weather.

                I've had several tubes of this over the years but I didn't get too excited about it until recently. My first few tubes I didn't use up very quickly, because as an all over body treatment, I just didn't enjoy using this product. It's a bit thick for head to toe use. Well, fast forward to this winter when my combo face skin dried out like the Sahara desert. I didn't really have any "dry" skin products on hand as I always purchased products appropriate for my combo skin. But I did have this one and I began using it religiously on my red and tight cheeks as a sort of overnight moisture mask. And shockingly with my acne prone skin, I have had absolutely no increase in breakouts. In fact, I think I've had less. I've since purchased this product's baby brother facial version, which is a tad more creamy and just a tad more easily spread but otherwise, this wonderfully priced product for the body is perfect for parched skin on the face.

                    I have used this twice but cannot use it again. I cannot really comment on the efficacy of the cream because as soon as I put it on, all I could think was I could not leave it on due to the awful, rancid oil smell. It smells like nuts or oil that has gone bad. I tried it a second time, hoping against hope I could tolerate it, but what a waste of money. I am very discouraged. This is the second rancid product I have received from Paula's Choice. I am in Europe until March, so I cannot even return it. Good thing I am a regular customer because if this had been one of my first few products, I would never be back!
