It is like a paste in the jar. Gently move the pad of your finger in a circular motion on the surface. Your finger warms it up, and you get just the right amount to apply. It takes very little for each application.

It's like a thick cream. The top layer does seem like paste at first, but I figured out by circling the flat of one finger on the surface of the cream I get to pick just enough cream. It's definitely not like other creams where you tap your fingertip on the cream and you'll pickup a lot on your finger. I think once you get through the first top thin layer of the cream, it'll be more cream-like for you.
When I first opened the jar it was more like a paste. It's more of a cream now. I love the way it applies - very smooth and it takes very little.

Yes, it is paste-like, but I don't mind it. In fact, I welcome it. I use this for my winter cream. It has the extra greasiness that I need for winter winds and dry radiator heat from my NYC apartment. It has also diminished dry patches that I get around my nose and chin, and the overall tightness that I get from having dry skin. Use a small amount. I put it on my fingertips and pat firmly into my skin, using the heat of my fingertips to thin out and spread the "paste."

I would say that it is more concentrated than a light, fast-absorbing cream. So, I can see why you'd think it's more "paste like" than creamy. I use very little of the product and more or less "dab" it on with quick repeated taps under and around my eyes.
