Cleared my Acne

    • Daily Use

    Ive been using this kit religiously for 5 months and my acne is completely gone. All of my congestion and pimples are cleared and i could not be happier with the results. I get so many compliments on my skin because of this kit. I added a moisturizer for AM and PM and SPF 50 as well in the AM to protect my skin from the sun because the BHA and BP will make your skin very sun sensitive so be aware of this when purchasing. You have to be consistent with this and get through the purging stage when your skin gets worse before it gets better. For me this lasted about 3 weeks then cleared from there. I use the BHA and BP only at night time as it was too much for my skin during the day as well. Absolutely thrilled with my results it saved my self-esteem. Would recommend to everyone!

    The BEST acne line

      • Daily Use

      I've waited for a while to write a review on this product line, because I really wanted to see how it worked long term. After 10 months of very consistent use, I am happy to report that this line has absolutely changed my skin for the better. I have struggled with adult acne for years. After a particularly bad round of hormonal acne, I went in search of a new system to treat my angry, irritated, zit-covered face. I had used Proactiv for years with mostly positive results, but I wanted something that would exfoliate a bit more gently. After tons of research, I ended up trying PC. For the first week or so, my skin was quite dry as it adjusted to the products. I combated this with the Resist Hydrator which I use nightly (I will add here that even though I have a fair complexion, I have never struggled with skin sensitivity). I also alternated use of the Exfoliating Solution and the Skin Clearing Treatment, doing one in the morning and one at night until my skin fully adjusted. With regards to the acne, I began to see improvement in 2 months and full clearing within 6 months. So this is my advice to anyone reading this review - BE PATIENT. Your skin WILL go through a purge process. PC has got it right - the only way to stop acne is to use an exfoliant (in this case the salicylic acid) and something to kill bacteria (in this case the benzoyl peroxide). But it takes a while for all of the junk that has built up deep within your skin to come forth and be gone for good. You must be patient and you must be consistent. I hope you will love this product as much as I do!

        I use this kit every morning to wash my face and in the evening to take the day off. My skin has dramatically improved in just a few months of using it. I can't thank Paula's Choice enough for their wonderful products. I have become much more confident in my skin because of them.

        Smooth skin

          I normally use a benzoyl peroxide treatment as a part of my skincare routine (Proactiv, Clinique). After running out, I decided to try Paula's Choice since I'm a fan of their other products, mostly because they're fragrance-free. Using this regularly (day and night for the exfoliant and treatment), I've already gone through the exfoliant first. I started out applying the exfoliant on the hands and rubbing it onto my face, but it "lathered" a bit, so I use cotton pads instead. It's much more lightweight and quickly absorbs compared to the other popular PC exfoliant, which goes on greasier. The BP treatment is also lightweight. Other reviewers complained about this kit causing dryness, but I always apply a lotion/cream/moisturizer after the treatment and never struggled with any dryness. For me, the stars of this kit are the exfoliant and treatment. The cleanser is fine, nothing special imo. Using these products, my skin feels so smooth! I just had to leave a positive review and hope you can get the same results too!

              • Enlarged Pores

              I've been using this kit for about 5 months now. I've had acne prone skin since puberty and have tried every thing under the sun: medications, high end MLM sets, home remedies - you name it. I suffered mostly from hormonal acne, blackheads and clogged pores.

              I have finally found something that works and I do not need to wear makeup to hide my skin. The first month my skin broke out a lot and I was concerned that I might be allergic to one of the ingredients. I told myself I would give it 2 more weeks and if no change it would go in the garbage like everything else I had tried. I was discouraged because I was breaking out in places that I was usually clear. After the initial breakout (don't forget salicyic acid turns over cells faster to it is just quickening the process of pimples you would have had anyway down the road!), my skin cleared up immediately. Since then I have had the odd blemish, but NO break outs. My skin looks so healthy and smooth. I am beyond impressed with Paula's choice products and now consider myself a life long customer.

              (Besides the clear line I have gradually introduced the 4% retexuring bha, resist antioxidant serum, and niacinamide booster.)

              I've used this product for two months and saw no changes in my skin. The cleanser was good, the exfoliating solution smelled so bad it left a bad experience after every use, the 2.5% BP was okay but not sure if it did anything to improve my skin. I was looking forward to this set as all the reviews were so positive but my experience was Paula's Choice was not.

                I hadn't used this trio in at least a year, and my skin suffered for it. I went to the dermatologist and got a prescription strength cream but it just wasn't helping at all. I thought about what I was using when my skin was the clearest and remembered Paula's Choice!! This line did more for my breakouts in the two days I started using it again, than the prescription did in the YEAR I was using it!
                It did dry out my skin a bit, but I'm also using my prescription in the evening so that may be why, but I just ordered a moisturizer which should help. If you are suffering from any type of breakouts I recommend trying this line!

                  Comments about CLEAR Regular Strength Acne Kit - Complete Kit:

                  Ive never had great skin but also not horrible, blackheads and hormonal chin acne. Had great success for a week and then things turned for the worse. Had pimples in places I've never had before and a colony of huge zits on my chin that ended up scaring. The toner runs out quickly because one drop on a cotton pad does not do anything.

                    Comments about CLEAR Regular Strength Acne Kit - Complete Kit:

                    Paula's Choice acne products are literally the only products that have ever cleared up my skin. I use the Pore Normalizing Cleanser, the Regular Strength 2% BHA, and alternate between the Extra Strength 5% BP treatment and the Regular Strength 2.5% BP treatment (I use the 5% on active breakouts and 2.5% as maintenance all over my face). I use these in conjunction with their Skin Balancing Pore Reducing Toner, which I think has also had a huge effect on the clarity of my skin. If I get lazy and don't use these products for a few days or if I try something else, I always come rushing back to my normal PC routine because my skin looks so much clearer and overall healthier when I use their products. Also, THEY DON'T TEST ON ANIMALS!!! That just makes me love and trust PC even more.
