Additional Information

Why is it different?
CLEAR Pore Normalizing Cleanser isn’t like other acne cleansers; it is completely non-irritating and won’t cause dryness or flaking. This cleansing gel actually has a silky feel that works quickly to remove excess oil and debris that can clog pores and lead to breakouts.
Collapse
What does it do?

    Comments about CLEAR Pore Normalizing Cleanser:

    I used all the drug store acne products and the expensive stuff from the doctor. Th only thing that worked was the antibiotics but you can't stay on those. I am quick to try things, but also quick to move on if I don't think it works. I started with the kit and then now just maintain on the cleanser, have been acne free for two years and if I get one its very small, and goes away quick, nothing like the nasty cyst types from before that were so painful.

    I really like the auto order, one less thing to think about

    Seriously... the best cleanser for my oily skin!

    By Christine

    from Orange,CA

    Comments about CLEAR Pore Normalizing Cleanser:

    I got this as a travel size, to see if I liked it... and I can honestly say that I will never buy anything else again. I have used Cetaphil Daily Cleanser for YEARS and this just blew it out of the water! My face was SO clean and NOT dry. When I used the Cetaphil, I would get residual make up on my cotton ball with Paula's toner, but there was NOTHING after I used this cleanser. Just TRY it!

      I use this facewash along with the other CLEAR products and love them all. Since using these products, I have definitely noticed a change in my skin- less cystic acne and noticeably reduced clogged pores! I also use the BHA 2% Skin Brightening Liquid and the CLEAR SPF 30+ moisturizer. I love them all.

          I use to use this product and loved it.........so much as I ordered 3 of them........when I got the new shipment, I was told they had taken out the ingredient TRICLOSAN (which is not good for Thyroid problems)....I thought this was a great idea on their part....since I have that problem...but they added two new ingredients....and there for my skin reacted severely...as in burnt my skin.......I am so disappointed with this....as I really liked this product......It is the first time I have ever sent anything back, I love Paula's products.....but no longer can use this cleanser.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Sending the parcel back was easy...but they have not received it as yet.

            My first order from PC. Clean well without drying my skin. I have super sensitive skin, it's very gentle. I also got the CLEAR Regular Strength Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution With 2% Salicylic Acid. I can tell my pores are getting a little smaller after 1 week. Love it!! I just placed my second order to try other good PC products that would work great on my skin.

              I have hormonal, cystic acne. I love this cleanser because it so gentle with sensitive skin but also removes all the excess oil, makeup, and dirt from my skin.

                  Comments about CLEAR Acne Cleanser - 6 oz:

                  My dry skin is finicky with cleansers. It lets me know when it finds a cleanser too drying (hello, flaky, scaly skin). Which is why foaming cleansers are a no-no. But I am paranoid about making sure my skin is clean because I'm prone to blackheads and I have large pores so I don't want it so gentle that it renders it ineffective.
                  I have used one bottle already, everyday, morning and night, and it has never dried out my dry skin plus it's a good cleanser! Win-win! I have bought two more bottles. My only complaint is I wish it came with a pump! I often squeeze too much. The squeeze mechanism is annoying especially toward the end.

                    I ordered this cleanser for my pre-teen daughter and I to test and share.

                    For me, it was a bit drying. I think in the summer time I'd love it. But middle of winter? A bit too harsh for me.

                    My 11 year old daughter is starting to struggle with blackheads and zits and it has worked to make her face more clear in the week she's been using it. I have relinquished it to her at this point--it's a better fit for her oily skin vs my combination/older skin in the winter.
