Why is it different?
CLEAR Regular Strength Daily Skin-Clearing Treatment with 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide works on contact to disrupt the causes of acne. Soothing plant extracts calm and soothe skin.

What does it do?
This oil-free, ultra-light lotion helps fight existing acne breakouts and prevent future breakouts on the face or body. It controls excess oil, soothes skin, and visibly calms redness, while its hydrating properties help minimize dryness and peeling.

How to use

Apply after cleansing and exfoliating. If dryness or peeling occurs, reduce frequency of application to once per day/every other day. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.

For best results, do not use hydroquinone and benzoyl peroxideat the same time. A temporary dark staining of the skin may occur. If accidentally used together, wash the skin with soap and water to remove the staining.

    This didn't make a difference at all for my skin, but may work for you depending on what is causing your acne. At least it did not irritate my highly sensitive skin, or dry it out. I switched over to the pore normalizing cleanser which was perfect for me and reduced my acne dramatically. Just buy sample sizes of the products to find out what works with your skin.

      I have been using the product for a month and the only thing it's done is dry out my skin like crazy. I have blackheads and get cystic acne but usually get one or two blemishes at a time so I settled on the regular strength thinking that the extra strength would irritate and dry out my skin to much but the regular strength did just that. The two blemishes I had when I started using this product(a month ago) are still present as well as the blackheads and I currently have a new painful one coming in on top of extremely dry skin.

        I recently started getting white heads all over my face. My cheeks would get extremely red and I'd breakout under any type of stress. I had googled a few solutions an decided to give this a try with the travel size. I LOVE IT. I haven't had a white head in 3 weeks and it leaves my face soft and natural looking. I usually clean my face in the shower and then apply this immediately after and it works like a charm. I truly recommend it.

          I have battled hormonal acne for a few years now. I have purchased many products without any results- until now. I use this every morning. I have had great results. It did take at least 3 weeks of dedication to see results. It is gentle on my very sensitive skin. I made a great choice In changing my skincare products to Paula's Choice!

            Comments about CLEAR Regular Strength Daily Skin Clearing Treatment with 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide:

            I put this on pretty much all over avoiding the eye area before bed. I had a few pimples but my main concern was the small white heads and bumps all over my cheeks, chin, and forehead. I woke up this morning and to my amazement almost all the bumps are gone, the pimples have diminished, and even red marks from previous breakouts are mostly gone. I've never seen anything work this fast. It's amazing. The only cost was it left my skin a bit irritated, some itching and redness. But to be honest I hardly care, that will probably be gone by tomorrow. I wouldn't use this regularly, but it's a pretty miraculous product.

              I only use the product on problem areas where I have acne or scarring. It makes a huge difference to pimples overnight and my scarring/hyperpigmentation is barely noticeable anymore after only a WEEK of use! I've been trying to get rid of my scars for years and nothing seemed to make a difference, but this made quick work of them. I didn't have any drying or sensitivity either.

                Comments about CLEAR Regular Strength Acne Treatment with 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide - 2.25 oz:

                Whoa- I finally found something that worked after eleven-twelve years of fighting acne. I use this product in combination with the BHA 2% Gel. I was using this product alone for 30 days, and when I used it with the BHA Gel I have seen dramatic differences. I been using the products for about six months now. Paula's Choice is really a game changer for me and my self-esteem. I have always been skeptical about acne products, but finally I have found a regime that actually works.

                I tried the more intense 5% product, because I thought my acne needed it. It is really intense. I have combination skin and think that this product is just as effective as the 5% and a little more mild on the skin. Both this and the BHA Gel have great coverage- you really don't need to use that much.

                I use to pick and pop at my pimples and once I started using these products I really stopped doing that. Something you will notice really quickly when using these is how fast they work overnight. I am not saying it's an instant cure, but you will notice blemishes shrinking and leaving less hyper-pigmentation than other products.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Very Fast Delivery. I order in the morning usually and get the products in two business days.

                  I've tried so many products to cure my cystic acne. Four brands of the birth control pill. Proactiv. Neutrogena. Clinique. Nothing worked. I was skeptical of using this because I've used benzoyl peroxide formulas before that turned my oily skin into a dry, flaky mess. But Paula's Choice is amazing. I've been using this for about two months. It has reduced the size, amount, frequency and duration of my breakouts. This has also slightly decreased the oiliness of my skin without drying my skin out. I'm able to use so much less makeup and I feel so much more confident. I'm now a huge fan of Paula's Choice and plan to try many more products.
