    Very Moisturizing
    • This is THE BOMB!!! I'm germ-phobic, so I wash my hands a lot. They get very dry. I tried using 100% shea butter, but the moisturizing effect of it is temporary. The first time I used this PC body butter I noticed a huge improvement in how well moisturized my hands and entire body were. Plus the moisture lasts a long time. Don't change the formula one bit--"butter" is supposed to be rich and thick. It's perfect. I do wish that it came in a larger size with a more economical price.

    Hard to spread
    • I do like this stuff - it makes my skin very soft and moisturized. But I would actually be happy if they thinned it out, because it is IMPOSSIBLE to spread. Until I work up a bit of a sweat trying to spread it, then it spreads a little easier :) But it is so incredibly thick that I rub my palms together, then put them on my thigh or whatever, and you really can't get it much farther than the area where you placed your hands. It's a shame because it's a great moisturizer.

    It works!
    • I use this body butter exclusively on my hands! There's a tube in my desk at work, one in the bathroom by the sink, and some I squeezed into a smaller container to keep in my purse. I even bought a tube for my husband's Christmas stocking this year. His hands are looking good, too!

    Non-Greasy!
    • This actually isn't greasy! It's super thick and almost a little bit difficult to rub over large parts of the body because of how thick it is, but it definitely does its job. I wish the bottle was bigger! Make the 7oz size please :) that's the only reason I give 4 stars instead of 5.

    Perfect, especially for my kids
    • I bought this for my kids (ages 3 months, 2, and 4) who have extremely dry skin and sometimes red patches. Most creams are too greasy and take too long to absorb and my two oldest hated using anything. This is so thick yet absorbs right away. I dont find it hard to get out of the tube and neither does my 4 year old. They love using this. Their rough skin feels baby soft and not at all greasy immediately. Love for myself too. I just wish it came in a bigger tube.

    Pricey for the amount
    • I was shocked how small the tube is. I hope this lasts awhile. Anyway, I didn't apply much. About 2tbs covered my body well (and I'm by no means a small person). It's January here in Canada and the air is VERY dry (yesterday was -21C/-6F.) Absorbed nicely and my skin feels hydrated; which it normally doesn't after a shower. Wish it was available in a larger size.

    HG from the very first application
    • I know this isn't targeted at KP, but I put a sample size amount on my KP ridden arms and they were 75% clear instantly! Unfortunately I only had the one sample and had to continue using other body butters and my arms are no longer clear. I've ordered two full sized bottles and can't wait for them to arrive.

    Bring back the old body butter!
    • This seems like a decent product, but not rich and yummy like the old body butter. I would splurge on that one, but now I'll just stick with my DIY butters with coconut oil and cacao butter.

    A Christmas Miracle!
    • This butter has made my 5th winter in Chicago the first my hands are able to thrive in. I've used it about once a day for the past month, and it soaks into my skin with no residue, stickiness or greasiness whatsoever. Thank you!

    Nice, wish it spread a little easier
    • I had the same wishes as with the new retinol intensive. This is incredibly soft, but I wish it spread just a bit easier. I have to warm it up a lot and it absorbs really quickly (which maybe is good?) before I can apply it fully. But, it's really soft and I've been using it on my heels at night. Doesn't completely heal my cracked heels, but I work outdoors a few hours a day in the cold, so I don't expect miracles. In general I like this. Perhaps the next formulation will be even better.

    Great Cream
    • For such a thick cream, it spreads easily. But the best part is how non-greasy it is. I bought this cream for my 5 year old son, who has very dry, itchy skin. Skin that he scratches until it bleeds. This cream helped with the bumps and he went a full day without scratching himself. With that being said, the tube is not big enough. I feel like if I don't pace myself, I can finish the whole tube in a couple if weeks.

    It's SO good!
    • OMG! I happened to try two samples and Wow! My first body cream/hand cream that is ultra rich in GOOD fatty acids/butters that makes a guy happy. This cream melts on contact with my skin and it is NOT greasy, sticky, tacky, or oily. I mainly use it on my manly leathery hands that is ultra dry and to my surprise, it feels so so SO soft on my hands. The Shea Butter in this does not feel greasy or tacky, unlike other brand with Shea Butter. PLEASE! Bring in a hand-cream jar, the same blend.

    LOVE!
    • I am a chronic hand washer, so my hands get dry pretty quick. In the winter my hands get so bad that the backs get chapped, cracked, red, and bumpy. EVERYTHING I put on them burns, except this (and Nivea creme which helps with the chapped skin but doesn't actually hydrate and fix the problem.) THIS DOES FIX IT! I put it on in the morning and my hands are silky soft all day but not greasy. It actually heals my dry skin instead of masking it. I agree, a larger size for whole body would be great!!!

    PLEASE Make This in a Larger Size!
    • This is by far the best body moisturizer I have ever used. As a massage therapist, I have used A LOT of different lotions, creams, oils, butters, etc., so I know of what I speak. The only criticism I have, is there is not enough! Just using it on myself, I could go through a tube in a week. Please consider making this product available in larger sizes such as 8, 12 or 16 ounces. I could seriously buy it by the gallon. Thanks.

    texture too hard for a tube
    • this is a great product for very dry skin the old packaging was a jar & a lot easier to apply. now it's like wrestling to squeeze out the "butter" from a tube. i just don't feel like "weight/resistance training"

    Wow!
    • This is by far the best cream for hands I've ever used! I apply at night and my hands are buttery soft in the morning! Great for the harsh winters up north. I use on my feet and elbows as well, but I think it's much to thick to use on the entire body.

    Yay!
    • Will definitely repurchase despite packaging being a tad smaller than I would have hoped. I mix this with the clinical redness reducing lotion so it'll spread more easily, though water will do, so it doesn't become too greasy. Hydrates very well! Also, best lotion I've ever used on my feet.

    Glad I Didn't Give Up!
    • After receiving my 1st sample of this Body Butter I thought I actually hit on the 1st product of Paula's that I wasn't crazy about. How could that be after 8 months of LOVING all her products, was she going to disappoint me now? I had to give her the benefit of the doubt and buy the full size, I just couldn't give up on her now! She came thru! 1st test was on my hands. She didn't disappoint and after a month my nails too were strong & long, who knew? Now no dry spots anywhere! THANKS PAULA!!

    Love this for eczema prone skin.
    • Something set off an eczema flare up on my eyelids about a week ago. It was either something I ate, or a new medication, or the sudden change in the weather from warm and humid to cool and dry. Who knows? But the itching was driving me INSANE. This body butter is the only thing I could put on my skin that actually soothed rather than made it worse. My skin seems to be back to normal now. I will continue to use this as an eye cream. Paula's products have been a lifesaver for my skin!

    Drys too quickly
    • I have been using this product for a few weeks now and do not like it because it drys on the skin as I am trying to rub it on. This is not what I would call body butter. I think there is too much drying agent in this product and therefore I will not purchase it again. Also, this product is not improving the dryness of my skin and therefore I cannot recommend this product.

    hydrating but not greasy!
    • I usually have to wash my hands after putting lotion on them because of the greasy feeling. Finally hydration without the greasy oily residue. Love this stuff. Need bigger size option though.

    Good emollient cream
    • Very rich and emollient, good for dry skin. However, may I suggest that PC consider formulating a basic body lotion, with anti-oxidants, but without anything extra --- no AHA, no BHA, no retinol, just a good daily body lotion that could be paired up with these other more specialized products? The body butter is quite rich for all-over daily use. I'd love a fragrance-free basic lotion that is lighter than this.

    Not moisturizing...
    • I have been using this body butter at night for a hand cream. In the morning I find my hands are still dry or even dryer! It almost feels like there is an ingredient missing in this cream. I have started adding reg. lotion and mixing it together and this has helped. I would not re purchase this one.

    • I really like the idea of having a cream on hand for all over the body, I can use it for my face, dry chest, hands, feet, elbows and knees. I just got it last week so I'm curious to see how much it can actually improve my skin.

How does Clinical Ultra-Rich Soothing Body Butter differ from the Paula's Choice facial moisturizers?

Clinical Ultra-Rich Soothing Body Butter is our thickest, richest, most emollient moisturizer. It has a very different texture from any of our facial moisturizers for dry skin. It is meant to provide utmost protection and smoothing of dry to very dry skin on areas such as hands, feet, elbows, and knees.

What is the difference between Clinical Ultra-Rich Soothing Body Butter and the Lip & Body Treatment Balm?

In a word, texture. Clinical Ultra-Rich Soothing Body Butter has a soft, buttery cream texture while the Lip & Body Treatment Balm has a thicker texture and more lubricating feel.

Another difference is that Clinical Ultra-Rich Soothing Body Butter is a water-based cream whereas the Lip & Body Treatment Balm is plant oil–based and does not contain water, which gives it a more viscous texture and slightly glossy finish. Both products are excellent for addressing the needs of dry to very dry skin, though Ultra-Rich Soothing Body Butter's texture is preferred for use over larger areas.
