Comments about CLEAR Extra Strength Acne Treatment with 5% Benzoyl Peroxide - 2.25 oz:
i recently suffered a MAJOR break out from accidentally splashing some dr. bronner's castile soap on my face in the shower. i don't have super delicate/sensitive so i was really surprised when this happened. my left cheek was covered in cystic blemishes and very rash-like bumps. i have been washing my face w/ another brand face wash but using this product every morning and night. in the morning i wash, apply this, and a light layer of hempseed oil. at night i wash, apply this, and top with a spot treatment of PC's resist 9 serum.I have noticed a CONSIDERABLE difference. within two nights a giant cystic pimple on my jaw was gone and overall redness has gone down.i am purchasing this product again!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great for breakouts
from Northern CA
About Me Beauty Conscious
I bought this product to replace a 10% benzoyl peroxide which I have used for years. This product clears my hormonal breakouts in a couple of days without totally drying out my skin. I'm glad I switched to this product because breakouts a bad enough with out dry patches afterward.

Works but with a lot of Flakes
from Toronto, ON
For my skin benzoyl peroxide is the only thing that works, since I've started using this product, my skin has improved tremendously. I have oily acne prone skin, and the acne covers my cheeks. This does give me very flaky skin because it dries out the pimples. I only lather this on my face at night because during the day it will dry my face out no matter how much moisturiser I use. It does it's job, and it's been helping a lot with my scars too. I'm thankful to Paula for creating this. I've tried benzoyl peroxide from oxy and clean and clear but those don't give me the same results.

I read the reviews and decided to try this after getting really horrible breakouts on my chin. I used it twice a day in the beginning and it made my skin too dry. It's been about 6 weeks, and now my skin is so clear and I can use it twice a day with no drying. It's amazing stuff, and I hope they continue making it forever!My only complaint is the screw on cap, I wish it came in a pump form or a snap cap. It leaks out even if the lid is on tight, and sometimes explodes when I open the cap which gives me way more than I need. It's just stored in my bathroom so it should be fine? I'd be afraid to travel with it for fear it would really explode!

Perfect acne treatment product
About Me Beauty Expert
I've never used a better textured acne treatment product. I have been using this with a PC balancing cleanser, the acne clearing exfoliant, and another brand's retinol and moisturizer. This product is super smooth and silky, great for under make up or during the day, a lot of other acne products I have tried are really clinical feeling and chalky textured. I've been using this product twice a day to treat hormonal cystic acne and general breakouts and my skin is dramatically better after 2 weeks of use. I noticed a huge difference in my skin after just one application. Results!!!

I have been using the skin balancing kit and I added the c15 I believe it's called. But I just needed something extra for the bumps and pimples I was getting. This seriously calmed my skin and cleared even healing scars from picking at old pimples. It is making me wonder if I should move on to the clear kit line since I am mixing products ? Not sure but I feel comfortable with just using this! It does cause some irritation is used too frequently I only felt this around my lips and eyes so just be careful.

I like it so far
I received this product about a week ago. It is my first BP product by Paula's choice. Over the years I have used various Benzoyl Peroxide products (mostly over the counter). For the last year or so I have been using one called BenzaGel, but I haven't really noticed if it helped much. So far I like this 'Clear Extra Strength Acne Treatment'. It is more fluid in texture than what I was expecting (but I like the texture now). It sinks in quickly, and I haven't noticed any dryness from the BP. My only small complaint is that when I put it on my skin I feel a warm sensation for about 5 minutes after I put it on. The product sinks in quickly and does not leave any residue. I have not had any adverse reactions to this product, and I believe so far it is helping my skin (I have not had any major breakouts since using it). I will more than likely repurchase it in the future!
tones everything down
By Ilana W.
I use this every other day at night time after my moisturizer on any red areas or any areas with spots, and the next day my skin is silky soft and clear. however If you use this every day it gets a little drying. Benzoyl peroxide is a life saver.
By Rashad H.
Combining this with the Clear Pore Normalizing Cleanser, 1% BHA Lotion, and my favorite moisturizer(s), my skin has transformed! It's not perfect but it's a MAJOR step up from the breakouts, especially those painful guys that'd pop up along my jawline. I was using the Clear Regular Strength Skin Clearing Treatment, but I realized it wasn't strong enough for me, so I tried this and the acne really has disappeared. It is a bit drying but that's why it's important to Moisturize. - A hooked customer

Excellent spot treatment
By Ann M.
This helps pimples go away. I use the blemish extractor tool to apply the product rather than soak up the product with a Q-tip. Rinse w/ hot water after. It was too strong when I was using retina-a - caused too much drying, but it's excellent now that I'm using BHA twice daily instead.
