Clear Regular Strength Daily Skin Clearing Treatment with 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide contains benzoyl peroxide as its active ingredient, and it is the gold standard when it comes to over-the-counter ingredients for acne-prone skin. It is formulated in a lightweight lotion base that sets to a soft matte finish and contains soothing anti-irritants so it remains effective against acne-causing bacteria while being gentle on skin. Regular use will result in a significant improvement in your acne-prone skin.

Works immediately to eliminate acne-causing bacteria. Super-light lotion texture feels great and sets to a matte finish. Specialized anti-irritants reduce redness.

Disclosure: In addition to reviewing thousands of cosmetic products from hundreds of brands over the past 30 years, Paula also has her own line of products called Paula's Choice. Paula and her team's goal is to help you find the best products possible for your skin whether they are from Paula's Choice or some other product line. Paula's commitment to this is so strong she is the only cosmetics company owner in the world that recommends products other than her own. Paula and the Paula's Choice Research Team formulate our products to meet or exceed the criteria we use to review products from every other brand on this site. We review all products the same way using the same research, objective comments, and praise no matter whose product it is.

Paula's Choice was created in 1995 in response to the many readers who asked Paula to develop her own products. Given Paula's unique overview of the cosmetics industry, 30+ years of research, and earnest desire to help people find the best products for their skin-care needs, creating her own products was a natural extension of her work. Paula's Choice range of products are designed to meet the needs and preferences of just about every skin type and concern imaginable using only proven ingredients substantiated by published research.

Paula's Choice products provide:

  • State-of-the-art formulas based on reliable, published skin-care research

  • Environmentally-friendly products that feature minimalist packaging that ensures product efficacy
  • 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee from our world-class Customer Service Team

Paula's Choice products and Paula's work is routinely praised by noted dermatologists and other professionals. New York-based dermatologist Dr. Debra Jaliman stated that "I have a lot of respect for Paula Begoun and the way she thoroughly researches her subject. Her recommendations about cosmetics and skin care are deservedly influential." Eminent Seattle-based dermatologist Dr. Brandith Irwin concurs: "She takes a complex subject and makes it easy to understand!"

    Keeps Us Clear
    • I previously used Oxy10 & ProActive Solution but switched to this product when my son started complaining that the other two were drying out his skin and making his acne worse. This product hasn't dried out his (or my oily) skin and keeps acne at bay. He only uses it when he experiences a breakout even though I've explained that it's better to use it every night as a preventative but he's 17 and he knows it all (haha) and doesn't listen to me. I use We've been using it several months. Works fab.

    • It worked the first few times......then........I had a bad reaction and had a red circle on my cheek for over a week. All I did was apply a small amount to a small blemish. I woke up to a red splotch. I do not understand. Makes no sense to me at all. I don't get many zits so I had only used it one other time with fantastic results. I cannot recall if I used bha or aha either of the times. Maybe it reacted badly with that. Call me confused. Scared to try it again. Usually used proactive.

    worked right away
    • I put it on my zit and it was diminished by morning. I used it again the next night and it was gone. I am thrilled with this product. I use after skin care regiment. Will buy this a again. But it will last as I do not get many blemishes. Go Paula's Choice team. Keep up the above average ( by far ) work.
