Works very well, but..
from Vancouver, Canada
Comments about CLINICAL Ultra-Rich Soothing Body Butter - 4 oz:
This works very, VERY well. It moisturizes, softens and hydrates. I leave it on overnight and my skin that flakes looks like baby's skin. And it even lasts for the entire day after. However...It is very greasy and doesn't absorb well if at all. Imagine spreading cooking oil on your skin.It also doesn't spread very well. Especially when its cold. The formula needs a little more water.So I recommend that you use this only on places where you don't mind having that greasy feeling, and to use this at night before bed, so it doesn't irritate you.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Sad to say it's my first review...
from Halifax, NS, Canada
About Me Brand Buyer
Being a loyal PC user since early 2000's it's sad that this is my first review, BUT should also show how much I love this product lol.Received it free with a special offer order, didn't think I'd like it due to its thickness and heaviness...boy was I wrong! Fellow hairstylist out there, this will save your hands, especially in cold winter months.But where this gem impressed me the most was... I use CLINICAL 1% Retinol Treatment once and week because that's all my skin can tolerate... one night I decide to try it 2x a week and I think I also used too much...anyhow within day 2...my entire forehead (very temperamental) broke out in red itchy bumps....I'm assuming cosmetic dermatitis... anyhow I laid off any tropicals for that area and needed a good moisturizer for the area without irritation... BAM there comes this gem.....soothed it upon impact!...... few days later all is clear and I'm still using it in the area mixed with a little wet hands to thin it out.Thank you so much Paula for saving my skin :)
IT COULD BE BETTER
By RICHARD THE SECOND
from PHILADELPHIA, PA
I'VE USED THIS BUTTER FOR A FEW YEARS NOW. AND IT IS AN OKAY PRODUCT, I DO THINK IT COULD BE IMPROVED. MY HANDS ACTUALLY DO NOT FEEL THAT MOSITURIZED AFTER USING THIS. IT IS VERY, VERY THICK WHICH FEELS UNCONFORTABLE ON THE SKIN. I DON'T SEE HOW PEOPLE COULD LOVE IT SO MUCH. I THINK THE PREVIOUS BUTTER WAS BETTER. MY HANDS NEED MORE MOISTURE AND I WOULD PREFER A MUCH LIGHTER TEXTURE, I AM GOING BACK TO AVEENO HAND CREAM. SORRY, BUT THAT'S THE TRUTH.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I use it mostly for my hands and feet when they get too dry
does separate towards the end
from Jersey City, NJ
I understand this to be the replacement for the old "body butter" lotion product. I like this product, I use this product and will continue to use it along with all my other fantastic Paula's Choice products. I do want to bring one matter up ... when you get towards the bottom of the tube, this product does separate. The oil will spill out first. This was never the case with the original "body butter". Asking if you can reformulate to get it back to the original. Thanks.

About Me Budget Buyer
I received this as a gift with my last purchase and I'm so glad I did because I don't know if I would've tried it otherwise. It is awesome!!! So moisturizing with out being greasy!! Instantly makes dry skin feel better! I have even used it on my face during a bad cold, NO break outs! I like the packaging, just wish I could get in a bigger size!

Awesome Addition To My Nightly Routine
from Alexandria, OH
I received this as a freebie using a recent discount code. I know it's meant for the body but I started using it on my face and it's now part of my nightly routine. My skin gets very dry during the winter months and it's already starting to feel tight despite the Skin Recovery moisturizers and moisture boosters. A little of this goes on my face as the last step and I have already noticed a huge difference. My skin feels hydrated and comfortable. I even use this on my eyes with no trouble so far. It's also a good hand and foot cream. I'll be buying a couple of tubes to stash by the bed and on my desk at work. It's the best moisturizing cream I've ever used..
from Toronto, Canada
I recently got this and am impressed with this product so far. It's very moisturizing and long lasting. It's easy spreadable as well and comes in a good sized tube. This is definitely one of my favourites.
Good, but oils separate
I think this body butter is a great moisturizer. It's wonderful for dry feet and hands or anywhere on the body; HOWEVER, the oils in this cream come out of solution and will squirt all over you! This happened to me the other night and it squirted oil all over a shirt and I now have oil stains all over that shirt :-( So I only gave it four stars. I suppose the solution to this would be to massage the tube to reemuslify the product before applying it... and I think I'll remember to do that now... but at the cost of a shirt. So use this body butter, but be aware that this could happen... especially if it's not a new tube.
Highly Recommended for Eczema & Sensitive Dry Skin
My now 5 year old son was born with severe eczema that hasn't improved with age. He is HIGHLY sensitive to any type of perfume to boot. Even touching someone or something that has been washed in scented soap or detergent aggravates his poor skin. He stays irritated pretty much daily and especially so in the drought we have been experiencing which dries the skin worse. But this product helps to calm his skin even in the rawest and most irritated places like his hands. It is safe enough for his cheeks and behind his knees with not "hot" feeling. If a steroid is needed for the most extreme cases of irritation, I always use this product afterwards to protect and soften. Since he is 5 years old, he isn't a fan of feeling greasy and doesn't understand even if it is to help him feel better, so this product is his favorite and quickly becoming the only moisturizer we use on him now. It seems to actually soften and protect even better than petroleum jelly or Ceramide creams which are the most recommended treatments for severe eczema and dermatitis. I HIGHLY recommend this product!The neutral smell isn't a problem for us. It smells like cream, for lack of a better way to put it. It does NOT stink! We LOVE this cream! Please never stop making it! I adore it a hand cream as well and have only positive things to say about it.
