Comments about CLEAR Acne Body Spray - 4 oz:
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!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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

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.

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.

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
Exactly what you've been looking for
from Portland, OR
This body spray is honestly the best. I have been looking for a versatile and daily use body spray for years and this one is perfect -- and they don't test on animals which makes me feel great about supporting Paula's Choice. I use this spray mainly on my arms (KP and breakouts) and also my back for breakouts. This product totally disrupts breakouts and allows your skin to finally breathe. Dries very quickly and doesn't give you that tight-skin-feeling or residual stickiness.
from Boston, MA
Finally! My bacne is actually clear in time for summer! I've been using regularly every morning for about 3 weeks and it's even diminished the dark spots left from older acne. I generally have a patch of acne on my upper back and this worked perfect. My only complaint is it takes a few minutes to dry so I didn't use it all winter because I couldn't wait that long to put a shirt on in the morning! But, it's a liquid so I wouldn't expect it to dry immediately. Also, I haven't had any trouble spraying it at any angle, so super easy to spray on hard-to-reach back areas. Overall, great product!

Does wonders to my skin
I am really impressed with this product. I ordered it for my back but then I realized that I could have used it on my face as well and it's said to be even less irritating than the normal PC BHAs ( go to FAQ for more info). I have used it for about 6 days so far as my first BHA treatment and I am literally blown away. I have been under a potent prescribed Retin-A treatment since ever and I am satisfied with the results but my skin has been NEVER this soft and glowy since I added BHA to my skincare routine. I feel lucky that my skin could put up with Retin-A along with BHA. I use it twice a day after cleansing my face and using toner ( I spray it twice to my palm and then apply it directly on my face by the fingers) and I really feel that it has been reducing the minor flakiness around my chin caused by Retin-A. I did get a very minimal irritation on the corners of my nose just for the first couple of uses, but it has subsided to zero sign of irritation since then. It absorbs quickly leaving my skin hydrated...yes hydrated...without being greasy. I am pleased by its liquid form so I have no concerns of balling up issues as I would have likely experienced with the lotion or gel types. BTW, the pump application is also beneficial for the face as you can easily control the amount of the product coming out without being in a rush to put the cap back. As I said I use it with no cotton pad on my face and I noticed that I need less product this way. I hope the PC weekly foam BHA which is on its way to me works too.
