CLEAR Regular Strength Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution with 2% Salicylic Acid is a water-light liquid with 2% salicylic acid that exfoliates skin's surface as well as inside the pore lining. The result is fewer blackheads, white bumps, and acne breakouts, as well as smaller pores!

Those benefits would be enough reason to give this a try, but the benefits keep coming. Not only do the salicylic acid and soothing agents reduce redness and inflammation, but also this liquid exfoliant provides a measurable improvement in skin tone and clarity, while feeling surprisingly light and refreshing.

We could go on and on, but the bottom line is that if you're experiencing mild to moderate acne, blackheads, or white bumps, this is absolutely worth trying.

Pros:
  • Unclogs pores, helps prevent blemishes, and diminishes blackheads.
  • Water-light consistency suitable for all skin types prone to breakouts.
  • Formulated to calm redness and inflammation.
  • Improves skin's tone and texture.
Cons:
  • None.

CLEAR Regular Strength Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution brings about an immediate reduction in blackheads, white bumps, and acne by unclogging pores and reducing inflammation with 2% salicylic acid. Unlike most products designed for acne-prone skin, CLEAR Regular Strength Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution doesn't use harsh, irritating ingredients such as alcohol, menthol, peppermint, or camphor that can make acne worse. Its light-as-water texture leaves skin feeling like there is nothing on your face, yet delivers powerful anti-acne benefits all day long. Ongoing use can guarantee significantly clearer, smoother, even-toned skin and can eliminate redness from acne lesions. This product is 100% fragrance- and colorant-free with an effective pH range of 3.5-4.0.

Brand Overview

Paula's Choice Skincare At-A-Glance

Paula's Choice Skincare was established in 1995 when best-selling beauty author and consumer advocate Paula Begoun (known as The Cosmetics Cop) decided to develop her own products.

As a natural evolution of Paula's personal mission to help consumers find the best products for their skin, the line has grown into an extensive range of skincare and makeup products that are formulated to meet the needs of almost every skin type and skin concern imaginable.

The formulas contain only ingredients that have substantiated, published research showing they are beneficial and effective. Stable packaging is another feature of the brand, using innovative, opaque, and air-tight or air-restrictive components that keep antioxidants and other light- and air-sensitive ingredients from breaking down. The line is also 100% fragrance-free.

Disclosure: Paula Begoun is the creator of Beautypedia and founder of Paula's Choice Skincare products. Reviewing thousands of skincare and makeup products over the past 30 years, both on this site and in her best-selling books, Paula's mission has always been to help consumers find the best products possible for their skin. The Beautypedia Team proudly and unequivocally maintains this commitment. In addition, The Beautypedia Team reviews all products using the same rating standards and criteria, whether it is a Paula's Choice product or another brand.

Why are all Paula's Choice Skincare products rated highly? The Paula's Choice Skincare Team would not launch a product unless it was worthy of a high rating from The Beautypedia Team. Paula and The Beautypedia Team were researching and reviewing products long before Paula's Choice Skincare ever existed and consumers were constantly requesting a skincare brand that met all of Beautypedia's criteria. As a result, The Paula's Choice Skincare Team was created and uses the same research and criteria to formulate Paula's Choice products as The Beautypedia Team uses to review products.
