Changed my view of exfoliant

About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about CLEAR Extra Strength Acne Exfoliant - 4 oz:
I am a 27 year old woman and I have dealt with and struggled with acne since I turned 21, and I honestly have tried almost "everything". I have paid so much money to dermatologists, switched my diets up, took prescription antibiotics for years, tried seemingly every acne skin treatment, I feel I have just been through the ringer with acne. MY sister-in-law also struggled similar skin ailments and sent me a trial size kit of the clear blemish control, and swore by it. When I had seen her I noticed a difference in her right away. I started using the kit and long story short it's been about 8 weeks now and I too am starting to see a big positive change in my skin. My skin has cleared up a lot, although not all the way clear, I feel so much more confident. My skin's texture is so much smoother and softer. This product really does reduce redness and inflammation. I have never had a product work so well before and I was very skeptical because I though you could only exfoliate with a scrub, but this method of exfoliation produces much better results. I encourage anyone to give it a try. I will continue to use this product as well as discover other Paula's Choice products.

About Me Beauty Expert
This product helped me get rid of adult acne.Combined with daily SPF and a moisturizer for night time, of course.I've been struggling with acne for almost 4 years, with occasional breakouts. I tried everything except Accutane (months of antibiotics, peelings, anti fungus treatments etc).The BHA was the only one that kept acne from reappearing.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is okay. The Resist 2% BHA one works just as well if not better. I bought this to get rid of redness and to help with the really bad black heads I have on my nose and chin. Honestly didn't see much of a difference.However, I was already using the Resist one previously and it was awesome. This helped the same amount with my blackheads and breakouts as the resist one but it left a almost greasy finish, like it never really absorbed into my skin. I didn't mind because I have extremely dry skin (Canada, yay) but if you have oily skin go for the resist one. It's like it's not even there.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I'm 36 with dry, yet acne-prone skin and this is a really helpful product. I use it twice a day and my acne bumps and flare ups have diminished greatly. In the future I will probably try the "regular strength" because if I wear this under makeup, you can tell that my skin looks a little tight or pulled. But at night, it's a dream that goes to work to clear up my cystic acne. Thanks for a wonderful product.

The Right Stuff
from Kansas City, Mo
I use this product about twice day. It helps keep acne at bay. It helps slightly with redness. My only complaint is that is too liquid. A bottle tipped over will spill out quickly. Once opened, it will leak if closed and lays on its side. I used the 2% BHA Gel for years before trying this. I saw photos where my face seemed quite red. This has helped some with the redness but not reversed it. This is a one of a kind product no other skin care or cosmetic company manufactures a comparable product.
Service and delivery comments:
My product was delivered within 2-3 days of placing my order. It was in good condition and packaged effectively, but not excessively. In fact, I've only had to contact customer service once in the several years I have been using Paula's Choice. It was after I had a reaction to a different product. Once I explained the problem, I was offered a refund, credit or my choice of different products of the same value. It was a surprising and refreshing experience.
from Birmingham, AL
I've used this twice a day for a week on a patch of stubborn clogged pores and this is the only product with which I've noticed a difference. I'm extremely impressed!!

About Me Minimalist
I really like this product a lot. I applied it on my skin before putting a tretinoin cream and have been seeing great results. It's only been about a week and I already see my post acne red marks fading.I only use it at night since my skin can't handle using it both day and night.

Regular is better
from New Brunswick, Cananda
I have been using this twice a day, except for a few nights a week when I use my PC weekly retexturizing foam (highly recommend) in place of it. It does help treat/prevent acne/blackheads and does a good job at minimizing redness at breakout areas, but honestly I found no difference in effectiveness between this and the regular strength. The extra strength also left a tacky residue that regular did not and for these two reasons I'm just going to go back to the regular strength next time.

Not good packaging for travel
from Marietta, OH
I love the product itself. I have been using it for about a year now and it does a fantastic job gently exfoliating my face. My only complaint is the bottle leaks.. I have to make sure that it is upright on a counter in my bathroom. Definitely do not travel with this product unless you put some in a different bottle (Which is a pain). I recently took this on a family trip and lost about 1/4 of the product in the bag. I even checked to make sure it was sealed and it was so I have no idea why but this bottle leaks.. It's not a faulty bottle because I've had the same problem with every one I have bought. Love the product and I will continue to repurchase just hope that Paula's Choice will put this in new packaging so I don't lose product.

Words cannot describe how much this product has improved my life. For the first time, my skin is CLEAR. I haven't had a breakout in months, which has NEVER happened. I'm one of those people who have tried it all: proactive, prescriptions, not-wearing makeup, OCM, changing/eliminating foods from my diet--everything. This is the ONLY product that has helped, and I am still astounded by its effectiveness. Like many other people, I was hesitant to try out this product because I feel like I would just waste more money, but please don't give up on it yet. I started with the BHA liquid, and saw improvement, so I stepped it up and used the normal strength acne exfoliant and saw even more improvement, so I decided to go with the extra strength. I have combination skin that gets really oily on my forehead but I can get dry patchers around my mouth. This product did not dry out my skin whatsoever and I use it 2x a day. In fact, I feel like it almost moisturizes my skin. I am eternally grateful for this product--thank you Paula's Choice! I no longer feel self conscious about my skin, and that has been a concern throughout my entire teenage years, and especially through my younger 20's (when I felt like all of my friends grew out of the acne stage except me!)
