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.
