About Me Minimalist
Comments about Clear Regular Strength Acne Exfoliant - 4 oz:
Oh man oh man do I love this product. If I run out my face immediately becomes dry and I seem to break out. This stuff actually keeps my skin hydrated and definitely reduces the redness from my blemishes. I put a small amount on a cotton ball and rub on my face every time I wash with the Clear cleanser. Great stuff!!!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Conscious
I really hope this product is never reformulated or discontinued. it's like a holy grail for me. The first time I used it, a positive difference in my skin was already visible the next morning - smaller, cleaner looking pores, a reduction in the redness and size of all active acne spots, and now a few months since that first use, my skin is nearly flawless again. Together with the pore normalizing cleanser this has really helped me to beat my mild acne and it even helps my acne hyperpigmentation. I just dab a bit on my face with a clean wash cloth and a little goes a long way. It's definitely formulated to be very gentle but I have accidentally irritated my skin when I got overzealous and used too much

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!
from Columbus, OH
This product is absolutely wonderful. I ran out of it a month ago before traveling for the holidays and have had recurrent breakouts ever since. I had been faithfully using this product for the previous 9 months and had been breakout-free. I will never be without this product again!

Great for acne and shaving irritation
About Me Beauty Expert
I can't write enough good stuff about this product. It's pretty much perfect. I've struggled to find any other quality BHA product that is alcohol free and fragrance free. I use this BHA twice a day and it keeps my acne, blackheads and closed comedones at bay without being drying (many BHAs are drying by nature but this one escapes that pitfall). My husband and I both use this to combat shaving irritation. When used the day after a shave we don't experience any ingrown hairs or plugs or red spots.

For some reason this product exacerbated the blackheads on my nose and caused clogged pores everywhere else where there previously was none. Once I stopped using it my skin cleared up. Not sure exactly what ingredient(s) caused the clogged pores, but I definitely will not be repurchasing. FYI: My skin loves salicylic acid and licorice root extract (2 of the ingredients listed). PC's return policy is wonderful though.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Customer Service Response: Hello, and thanks for your feedback! We're sorry this didn't work as expected for you, but glad to hear you used our return policy!
I waited awhile to try this product after using EVERY Paula product and I am not sure why since it is hands down a game-changer. The best product for acne I have EVER used. If I have a pimple, it is gone the following day. I only use this at night and the results have been dramatic. I will never be without this product again! Thank you Paula team! Please never reformulate or discontinue!

Wished I had been using it all along!
from Katy, Texas
I have used every Paula's BHA and AHA product ever made except for this one until last week. I have sensitive, acne prone, combination skin. Everything irritates my skin so I am always apprehensive to try things that are made explicitly for acne. BHA 2% Gel- Great product but just too sticky and didn't absorb wellBHA 2% Liquid- This worked really well and wasn't as sticky as the gel but still took a while to absorb. BHA 4% Foam- I like it but it is strong and can only use it every once in a whileBHA Resist Liquid- This has been my new favorite. It absorbs quickly and instantly "dries" so I can layer my moisturizer and makeup easily in the morning on top of it. By far the better choice and worth the extra money compared to the others. Also I like that this one has additional antioxidants.Clear Acne Exfoliant with BHA- This product works just as well as the BHA Resist Liquid! It dries really quickly, works well under my foundation and doesn't irritate my skin at all. Yes, it doesn't have as many antioxidants but I already use the Ultra-light antioxidant serum morning and night. Plus the Clear Acne Exfoliant is $4 cheaper and you get an extra ounce!!Love it. I will use up the other BHA products I have but then will buy this from now on!!In fact, I think I am going to buy one of the trial packs and leave it in my step-daughter's bathroom to try. I think she would really like this.

Wonderful product, but the packaging leaks...
from New York, NY
I recently stopped taking birth control and my face began to break out a lot, to the point where I felt uncomfortable about my appearance. I heard of this product on a few different beauty blogs so I decided to try it. It's drastically reduced blackheads, whiteheads, and full-blown zits. I visited my parents over the weekend and they both commented on how nice my skin looked. The only problem... on the visit, the product leaked all over my bag, despite the fact that the lid was shut tight. Love the product but after this trip I'm left with a lot less of it. Have to say I'd definitely recommend it for skincare, though. Just try not to travel with it, or if you do, transfer it to a different container.

I got this in the trial kit. I like the face wash, too. I do not like that other stuff that comes in the kit. Kinda useless. I believe the wash cleans my face so well that when I use this product afterwards as a toner, the cotton ball comes off clear. When I only clean my face with a makeup removing towelette, this takes the residue off within two applications over my face. My skin seems pretty clear and hasn't really broken out since using Paula's Choice products. I also use the SPF face lotion from this line.
I love this product!
from Bethlehem, PA
I love this product! I started using the regular strength acne kit last year when I couldn't figure out what to use from the drugstore - and boy was I doing it wrong before! The only thing I don't like about this product is that it runs out way faster than everything else in the kit. I've replaced it twice since buying the original kit and have just now had to replace the other two products along with this one for a third time. I use a cotton ball with it and I feel that it wastes a lot of the product still. However, I really like that an exfoliant doesn't have to be an abrasive scrub for your face. :)
