    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.

              Comments about CLEAR Regular Strength Acne Kit - Complete Kit:

              I tried this kit because I had been breaking out recently, and my friend recommended it. This was probably the worst mistake I made in terms of skin care choice. My skin seemed to be getting a bit better during the first few days (I was using it twice a day) but after 5 days of use, it got really bad. I had been ignoring the fact that my face burned every time I used it because I really wanted to get rid of my acne, but I can't ignore the massive breakout I had. My face has never looked this bad in my entire life. I have big red blotchy pimples all over my face, and small tiny bumps literally everywhere. I am so self-conscious and uncomfortable because they are so obvious! I look like a high school girl going through puberty, and I am 22 years-old!!!

              Not only did my skin breakout because of this treatment, but my skin won't stop flaking! I am constantly moisturizing my skin at least once every 2 hours because it's that bad. It is disgusting and embarrassing, and I'm really upset about it. I am never using this product again, and I don't recommend it to anyone.

                  Comments about CLEAR Regular Strength Acne Kit - Complete Kit:

                  I have tried so many different "acne solutions" and took a chance on this set. I didn't have a ton of acne, but experienced regular hormonal breakouts and whiteheads around my jaw and mouth. I have very sensitive and combination skin that was always tricky to deal with.

                  This set is the only thing that I have ever tried where I have seen a serious difference. Since using these products, I maybe get one or two small pimples around my period and that's it, and they go away within a day of using the spot cream. I feel comfortable not wearing foundation because my skin is so great. If you're having trouble finding something that works - TRY THIS. I'm incredibly happy with these products and won't use anything else.

                  Comments about CLEAR Regular Strength Acne Kit - Complete Kit:

                  I've purchased both the extra and regular strength versions of Clear and saw no real difference between the two in terms of effectiveness. After using all 3 products for awhile, I now only use the salicylic acid exfoliant. I stopped using the cleanser after the FDA banned triclosan (the antibacterial ingredient in the cleanser), and the benzoyl peroxide solution dries my skin out, stings, and bleaches fabrics. I still use a Paula's product as my cleanser: I have used both Hydralight and the Skin Balancing Oil Reducing cleanser. Both work well for me. Using one of these cleansers along with the salicylic acid is effective for me at controlling breakouts. It's cheaper, too.

                    Let me start with explaining that I am a 19 year old teen with the normal teen acne. I used to go to the dermatologist and they prescribed me pills for my acne but, I was told I was not allowed to take them after a year so... back to acne. I've tried everything and then I found this. Within the first two weeks my acne started to clear up. Within the first three months cystic acne stopped appearing and now i'm on my sixth month of use. I use the Clear Kit alongside the Skin Balancing SPF Moisturizer in the morning and the Resist Triple Action Dark Spot AHA Eraser at night. My skin is soft smooth and acne free. Give time and the results will come. They are magic!
