Swing and a miss

Comments about CLINICAL Ultra-Rich Moisturizer - 2 oz:
I feel this product is a rare miss for Paula. It sounds great in theory but in application the product is so thick I find it very difficult to spread on my skin. Also, after I have applied it...my skin feels tight! Not moisturized at all! I used to swear by her dry skin moisturizer that was in the white bottle with the purple label as my go-to night time moisturizer. I actually just realized it seems that one is no longer available :( that one was way more moisturizing than this one even though this one said it was good for very dry skin and that one said it was for normal to dry. I'm using it up as a hand moisturizer...even on my hands I find I'm rubbing them excessively to blend it in and it definitely leaves a greasy finish. Still love PC products just avoid this one!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Wonderful cream; Awful packaging.
By S. Powell
About Me Beauty Conscious
I adore this new cream. It's very rich and emollient. I'm glad to see the price went down, too. But the tube is just awful! Once it's over half empty, it's almost impossible to control the amount that comes out. You press and press and get very little, and suddenly a huge amount gushes out, enough for three applications worth. This is very frustrating. I hope you fix that!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Moisturizer/Anti Aging Perfection
By Anna the Esthy Student
from Fort Benning, GA
I have tried all of PC's moisturizers for Normal/Dry/Very Dry Skin. However, I would still have to layer Infadolan over the moisturizer at night, as I would wake up and my skin would feel tight. This Clinical moisturizer is so superb, I can't even believe it. I will never switch to anything else and will buy this for life for as long as PC never discontinues.Perfect application, perfect feeling on the skin, perfect results!

This moisturizer is absolute perfection. I use it for my night time moisturizer. It is super rich but melts like butter upon application, leaving my skin feeling silky and soft without any stickiness or tacky feeling. Simply gorgeous! I will buy this for life!!
Really good moisturizer!
I use this mostly under my eyes because I get really dry in that area and this moisturize beautifully without irritating. I apply this and then my concealer and it works beautifully and my makeup doesn't crease at all.It is at the heavier side but I don't find it greasy but it do sit on my skin for a while but I don't find it to be a problem.

This stuff is magic for me. I am on the drier side and super sensitive so sometimes I get scaly flaky patches that get red and irritated. Also those annoying dry spots after a pimple. I use this as a spot treatment on my dry spots at night and I also use it around my eyes as an "eye cream." It's working far better for my eye crinkles than products marketed for them. Sometimes in the morning I will dab a bit on before my SPF moisturizer if I need a boost on some patches. Also, when adjusting to BHA I relied heavily on this cream. It's truly a Holy Grail for me!

Please NEVER change or discontinue!
from Madison, WI
I have dry skin, especially in winter, and had been using a Philosophy product that I loved but was discontinued. Had tried a few other moisturizers for very dry skin that were irritating or did not work before I found this moisturizer. I love this product! My main concern is finding something that I can use morning and evening that does not irritate my eyes and that is not too greasy/oily to wear under my foundation. This product fits the bill. I can use near my eyes without stinging/irritation and I actually think it makes my foundation go on more smoothly with better coverage!I understand that some folks may find it a little thick, but I usually apply after my toner and/or serum, so my skin is probably still a little damp from that and I don't have any problems with the thickness.This is a holy grail product for me. I thought I might use only in the winter, but have been using it year-round with no irritation, breakouts, etc. Thank you!

One of my faves
from San Antonio, TX
About Me Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
This is advertised for dry/very dry skin but I think this is more suitable for normal skin type. I have to layer another moisturizer on top of this or use a facial oil underneath it cause it doesn't really last on my skin. After 30 minutes, I have to reapply so I have to end up using more products. Regimen: Cleanser>Toner>Copper Serum>Acid Exfoliant>Hyaluronic acid>Facial Oil>this moisturizer. Only then I won't wake up with a tight and flaky skin. In the day, I pretty much just smothered my skin with moisturizing sunscreen on top of it. This doesn't go well back in Scandinavia weather in any season so I am only reserving for when I'm in Texas weather. I never broke out from it therefore I am giving in a 4 star.

The richest, creamiest, soothing moisturizer on the market!
About Me Beauty Conscious, Nurse Practitioner, Skin Care Professional
I am a nurse practitioner whose skin has been through the ringer these last two years. I had Efufex therapy March 2015 for AK, and my skin developed milia enplaque following the chemical burn. What a mess! I was especially self-conscious because I am an NP in a busy family practice. Patients were always asking me, "What's wrong with your face?" Ugh. I was treating my skin with Tazorac using the short-contact therapy, but nothing was removing the THOUSANDS of pesky milia all over my t-zone area. I started using products with high free-acid glycolic acids, and those pesky bumps are going away. However, with all the strong acids I am using on my skin, I needed a soothing, comforting moisturizer that would combat the dryness and tightness. I tried other Paula's Choice moisturizers and this one is the best I have EVER used, hands down! It feels thick when you apply it, but it melts on your skin like butter. It is a like a huge drink if water for my face. I have used many moisturizers specially designed for post-procedure laser, etc.. but this one is the best moisturizer for post-procedure chemotherapy I have tried (and I tried them all). Thank you, Paula's Choice!
