Ratings & Reviews

Skin is silky soft, comfortable


I use this right after the shower, and I can put body serums underneath it such as AHA/BHA serums without any problems like pilling or problems absorbing. It absorbs so well and there is never a sticky feeling that lingers such as with other body creams. My skin just feels very silky soft, plumped and well moisturized. Another plus is that there is no scent! My knees and elbows are less crepey. Paula, you must never stop making this luxurious cream. I will always purchase this!

Am a Jumping for Joy at how Wonderful it feels.


Wow! I have had bad experiences with body creams that had Shea Butter - the drug store kinds. Paula's Clinical Body Butter, to me, is well formulated. For a fussy guy who strongly dislikes greasiness, tackiness, stickiness and oiliness in body (face as well) lotions, creams, butters, etc, I'm over joy at how GOOD this body butter feels on my skin. I'm dry from head to toe during the winter months and my hands, elbows and heels are dry, crack and well...... dry. For me, it does not smell, not greasy (a huge plus), not tacky (plus), nor sticky, and certainly not oily. All of my dry tired parts feels smooth and well hydrated, that includes my crack heels and hands. Another place I found to apply the body butter is behind my ears - another dry area. I JUST wish the price was lower and it came in a larger tube, bottle, tub, whatever.

great, clean, moisturizer for dry skin


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.

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!

Perfect and Multipurpose


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.

Very good body butter, absorbs well when using after shower but would like it to come in a larger size please!

Multi-purpose product


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.

Sad to say it's my first review...


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 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 :)

Awesome Body Butter!!


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


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..
