Amazing for the face!
from Washington, DC
Comments about CLEAR Acne Body Spray - 4 oz:
I apply this with a cotton pad or my hands, morning and night. It layers beautifully under the rest of my skincare, and is slightly hydrating without feeling heavy. The original 2% BHA liquid never quite absorbs into my skin, but this does, plus I love the control I get with the spray nozzle, which works perfectly. You can use it to measure how much you use so that you aren't wasting product.This does the bulk of acne treatment for me because I use it quite generously twice a day and my skin has grown accustomed to the frequent exfoliation, but I still augment with benzoyl peroxide as a mask of sorts for about a half hour each night. When I'm asked about my skincare routine and I mention the part that is for treating acne, the response usually entails something along the lines of "what acne?"
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bye bye butt acne!
By I love PC
from Vancouver, BC
Yup! I use this stuff on my butt and it works every time! Having a job where I have to wear spandex all the time means I have constant battles with butt acne and lower back acne. No fun. I love that I can spray this stuff upside down. In an emergency, I sprayed some on a cotton ball and used it on my chin. It worked! I will be purchasing this again for sure!

Skin saver! Paula's choice delivers again!
from Atlanta, GA
About Me Beauty Conscious
I took accutane when I was 15 and my skin was great until I hit my twenties. I am now 29 and still struggle with mild to moderate acne on my back, neck and chest (when I'm not on bc). I also struggle with "bacne" when working out and sweating or wearing a sports bra. I decided to try this product and am so pleased with the results! I use this once/day (at night) after gently cleansing back neck and chest with my face wash and hands (no scrubbing!) I spray product onto hands and rub into the problem areas. I follow up with the PC CLEAR 2.5% benzoyl peroxide. Let dry and put on a clean t shirt. Within a couple days my skin was clear! No embarrassing spots or pimples! This product works well on my face too! No skin drying, peeling, or irritation! Thank you Paula's Choice! Your products are amazing skin savers!!! Only skin care I will use!

from Brooklyn, NY
I have had acne on my back for almost a year now. They never seemed to go away, old ones turned black and new, red, inflamed ones popped up on a weekly basis.I saw three doctors about it. I tried oral antibiotics, 10% benzoyl peroxide body wash, and a prescription sulfur wash.Then I started using this after my showers, which I bought a long time ago. After using this with PC's Benzoyl Peroxide 5% gel for two weeks, there was a noticeable reduction of new breakouts. After another week, it seemed like I stopped breaking out, and the newer ones were less inflamed and started healing!My backee left me with some scars, and two months later, they haven't all healed, but I wouldn't give up this formula for anything! Once sprayed, I let it dry, then I'd apply just a little Benzoyl Peroxide 5% gel to cover the hot spots, and waited for that to dry, and then I'd put on a white tee-shirt. (Benzoyl Peroxide can bleach colors.) A great formula!

I've had my acne under control for years, when out of nowhere, started having major flare ups of white heads and cystic acne (which I've never really had any issue with). I tried EVERYTHING I could think of but nothing made the cystic pimples stop popping up. I decided to give this a try even though I was already using salicyclic acid. Within a few days almost all my acne was healed. Never has anything I tried worked that fast.I used a cotton ball to apply to the face, and I have since ordered a gel version which is equally effective. Every now and then I get an occasional pimple that pops up, but no more cystic ones.

Great for Body, Not Face
from Upland, CA
About Me Beauty Expert
This product is wonderful, and has helped a ton with my chest/back pimples and texture (which are currently almost nonexistent at this point, thanks to this product). I have very sensitive skin and have found that this product does not cause any irritation at all. I give a quick spray after showering while my pores are still open, or I spray before going to the gym under my gym clothes to prevent sweat from causing any back/chest break outs and it works beautifully. I don't recommend using this on the face though, every time I use it on my facial skin it seems to break me out. I stick to the PC Salicylic Acid Gel for my face, it seems to work best.

from New Orleans, LA
I may be eating my words in a week but I've used this product once and have already seen a lot of improvement. I tend to break out on my shoulders, chest, and back in the hot humid summers. Today I am definitely feeling fewer bumps and tender spots than before. The smell of the product is light and "clean" (kind of like an unscented lotion). The bottle has good spray power and does well even held horizontally or upside down. This product is very gentle and does not sting unlike other similar products I've used in the past. The only thing I really don't like is the feeling of the spray on the skin after it settles. It's slightly tacky or sticky to the touch and feels rather filmy. Overall based on the little I've seen thus far the pros certainly outweigh the cons and I will continue use. If my opinion changes I will update.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was prompt. Product did arrive in good condition though I wish there was less waste generated by the packaging (a lot of packing paper and plastic cushioning).

Water on my skin
About Me Minimalist
This product was recommended to me by one of the experts on this website's chat. I have combination skin that is extremely acne prone, and they suggested the body spray for my chest and back. After one month of diligent use, I noticed no difference. Was told it could take 3-6 months to really see a difference. I waited it out. No difference. I used it more often as well as cut back on the number of times per week; no difference. Switched out different body washes (sulfates make me break out in cystic acne, so the PC acne body wash is out of the question) and exfoliants, still no difference. It also sprays straight out in a thin shot, which makes it drip everywhere. Now I'm stuck with a very expensive bottle of something that amounts to nothing more than a slightly sticky (post-drying) water for my skin, as it is long past the return policy's date.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I have struggled with small breakouts on my back, chest, shoulders and face for years. It's usually intensified during the summer when I'm sweating, but this year I started using Paula's Choice spray. I hardly see any acne in those areas. This worked way better than Proactive did when I was in high school. I love this spray. My only con is that I dislike the smell. It's very overwhelming when you spray you face. Other than that I recommend this for any and everyone.

Aggravated my Skin
from OR - Oregon
I used this once a day right out of the shower. Just caused too my drying and irritated my already angry back acne. Used entire hotel and have 3/4 of one currently that I have just stopped using. The paulas body treatment with 2%bha seems to be a better bet and calms things down redness wise etc. Sad that I now have unused product but it just isn't agreeing with my very acne prone, greasy, but easily irritated skin. Hoping that just using the body treatment will be enough to combat my current breakouts
