Brought my skin back to normal

Comments about CLEAR Acne Cleanser - 6 oz:
I am a total PC junkie. I use her products almost exclusively. I work at a spa that pushes Dermalogica (blegh!). I always recommend PC to my clients and they love it as much as I do. I have been using the Moisture Boost and Resist hydrating cleanser for my dehydrated, normal/combination skin for a couple of years. I got the trial size of this because my new birth control was giving me minor papular breakouts on my chin and forehead. I worried that this would dry me out (I do love a dewy finish). I love the way this gently foams and it does make my skin a LITTLE tight, but it doesn't feel stripped, just super clean and refreshed. No one should only be using cleanser anyway, so for those who say this is drying, get some hyaluronic acid or other serum(s) and/or moisturizer and you'll be fine. After all my other "replenishing" products are applied, my skin still looks and feels hydrated and my surface breakouts are under control! Try it for more severe acne, too (in addition to the other Clear products) It has worked wonders for my acneic clients of all grades.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Brand Buyer
I'm not a one cleanser guy---usually rotating among several and this one is always in my rotation, especially during that winter to spring changeover time when my skin tends to get oiler and more breakout prone. It leaves my skin very soft and while it washes away all excess oil, my skin does not feel tight or irritated. I cannot use benzoyl peroxide more than a few times per week because of side effects so I am appreciative of having another anti-bacterial agent to fight acne.
HG Cleanser For Acne Prone / Oily Sensitive Skin!
This cleanser really should be on every bathroom cabinet of anyone who suffers from acne prone & oily sensitive skin - this really did transform my combination acne prone sensitive skin, & I haven't seen a blemish ever since I started using nothing but PC products. This, along with the 2% BHA liquid lotion has completely transformed my very noticable pores along the nose which I never imagined possible. HOWEVER, I will say that after a month or two of using this cleanser religiously, every day, & in conjuction with my PC 1% retinol, my skin has become slightly dry & incredibly sensitised... I'm beginning to think that the cleanser may be contributing to this, & would suggest taking caution. This cleanser really was effective, but I continued to use it even after my skin completely normalised - I don't think this is a cleanser one will need to continue using once the skin problems are fixed. You may want to then consider switching to something for normal /or combination skin, & I'm really excited to try out a sample of PC's other cleansers now. This Clear Acne Cleanser will definitely be kept for any time, if ever, my skin begins to get greasy / flare up / blemished. It's great stuff! I'm 25, I've suffered with mild since my teens, but since using PC products, there's really no looking back. I wish I'd discovered this brand sooner - acne is very unpleasant! Please try this, the BHAs & the retinols at PC. This retinol, whilst smelling great & being so effective, also feels much gentler than the one I was prescribed years ago from a skin specialist. Thank you, PC!

Loving this product
By Anna Cass
I've been using this product for 6 years now. I started using it after giving birth to my 2nd child. Suddenly after giving birth, I had hormone imbalance. I never had acne that bad before. So I did some research on youtube and stumbled on this product. The review was so good that encouraged me to order it online. For the first week it dried up my skin. After using it for the 2nd week, i can see the result. My skin wasn't as dry as it was on the 1st week and the acne started to clear up. Now my skin is perfect, blemish and acne free. People always say my skin is beautiful and they don't believe when I told them that I'm 34 coming to 35. They say I look 23 years old. So thank you Paula's choice. One sad thing is that the price has increased since before. I use to buy it more cheaper than it is now.
from Davis, CA
My recent breakout has been horrible, so many clogged pores and whiteheads under the skin and a couple of larger red spots. I ordered the two week acne trial kit including this, the exfoliant, and the 2.5% benzoyl peroxide treatment - and within a couple days all of the bumps under my skin were gone. This cleanser is super gentle, so gentle that I thought that it wasn't going to do anything to change my skin. But it really did! It really does clean your pores effectively, yet gently. I also have very dry skin and this does not make your face feel overly tight after using it - it just feels SO clean! And my face feels really soft as well.

The only thing that helped
By Angie L
from Simi Valley, CA
I love this for my back and chest. Literally nothing has gotten rid of the acne on those areas like this has. It also makes my skin texture so soft and touchable. It does sometimes make my skin a little dry, so I only use it about 3 times a week. Seems to be a great fit for me!!
The only cleanser I use
from Portland, OR
I love this cleanser. I have sensitive-ish skin and I love that there's no fragrance in this (like all of Paula's products). This cleanser gets all the makeup off and leaves my skin feeling clean without feeling tight or dry (I have normal to oily skin). I have to have gone through at least a dozen bottles of this stuff, and just bought three more. I will be devastated if PC ever stops selling this!!

Very light texture, foams nicely and leaves skin feeling refreshed, no residue. However, for the amount of cleanser you get in the full size for the price is not budget friendly. I got this is the Regular Strength Trial Kit and glad I did not purchase the full size. Also be prepared for this to make your skin feel dry and tight. This did not bother me, for I expected something like this to happen with it being for oil/acne prone skin.Beautypedia has many high-rated OTC cleansers that I will be checking out (Neutrogena), for I will not be purchasing this cleanser due to it's volume -vs- cost.
I love this cleanser!!
from San Jose, CA
I've had this cleanser for a week already. It leaves my face so smooth after I cleanse my face. It doesn't make my face dry, just smooth. No irritation or redness.Some cleansers make my whole face feel tight, but this one doesn't.

LOVE THIS FACE WASH!!
from Westchester, NY
I have combo/oily acne prone skin. I used this face wash before, and to be honest I was not really impressed, so when I finished it, I did not repurchase it. A couple of weeks had gone by, and I started to notice that I was getting an alarming amount of black and white heads. The amount of stuff I was extracting from my face on a daily basis was downright disgusting. I had been running through everything in my skin care routine to see what could have attributed to this, and I remembered that I stopped using this face wash. I promptly reordered it, and within a week, my clogged pores had diminished by at least 75%. Another thing that I love about this, is that it does not irritate my sensitive skin, and it does not dry my skin out. Of course, I moisturize my skin, but in the couple of minutes I take in between the steps in my skin routine, this soap does my make my skin dry and painful, yet, it manages to thoroughly clean it. I am currently ordering 2 more bottles so I don't run out.
