Doesn't work for me!

Comments about Clear Extra Strength Acne Kit - Complete Kit:
I've tried this kit for about 3 weeks now and my skin breaks out like crazy. It does dry up your skin a little bit though. Based on other reviews, it seems like it might work for other people but it doesn't work for me. :(
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Conscious
Okay. So it's taken me a while to leave a review because I wanted to use this kit for a year I and see how my skin responded. I started with the trial kits, which I highly recommend. My boyfriends mother gave me one that her friend had sent her. My skin had chronic acne, what I mean by that is I literally break out every day or two. Makeup/ no makeup makes no difference. I went through every acne wash in CVS and every moisturizer with "acne control" and then took the plunge with Proactive after feeling desperate. Proactive was HORRIBLE, it actually dried my skin out so badly that it started cracking. And underneath that were breakouts, which as you can imagine were 100% more painful. After feeling completely defeated I went back to piling on concealer and living with daily cover up games. I feel like I sound like some dumb informercial, haha. But trust me, I'm 28 and I've struggle for, like, EVER with acne. Once I tried this Paula's Choice kit, I literally noticed a difference overnight. I'm not joking. I woke up the next day and it was like my acne deflated. But I was still really hesitant to get excited because the other products I've used sometimes exhibited similar results for the first time, but then failed after repeated use. Not Paula's Choice. This stuff completely changed everything for me. I've used it for the past year, and if I don't use it for more than a few days, my skin acts up again, but as soon as I get back into the routine, it's completely gone. It doesn't dry my skin out at all, and I do recommend using all three as they just work so well together. It literally makes my skin look like I've never had a breakout. My mom noticed after a week and asked me what I was doing because my skin looked smooth. I actually would never not wear makeup around boyfriends. Like, I would always always have concealer on because I was scared that if my skin was exposed, they'd think "ew", and this is the first time in my life that I've felt comfortable enough to wash my face and be around my boyfriend. He literally pets my cheeks and tells me how good they look now. Do yourself a favor, if you have s situation similar to mine, give this a try. They offer the small size as a trial, and once you fall in love the large kit is more practical financially. Hope I helped! -Meg
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Amazing. Hands down.

Ok... where do I start? This stuff was life changing for me. My entire life I have struggled with pretty significant acne. Especially hormonal acne. My breakouts are usually cystic and create sores on my skin if they get too bad or if I pop them. I've tried just about every remedy in the book. Nothing has worked. I found this stuff by recommendation by a YouTuber (ThriftThick) and thought I'd give it a try. When I started using it I had 2 deep cystic pimples. In about 3 days, they were GONE.This has never happened for me before. The face wash is great, really gentle. The exfoliate is a bit oily but I found that you don't need much and you just have to wait a little bit for it to sink in. The treatment is also great but a bit drying. Overall this does make my skin a bit dry, BUT, that's a small price to pay for no more acne. I just use a gentle moisturizer.By the way, I wear makeup A LOT. Today was the first day in probably about 7 years that I didn't feel like I had to wear concealer on my blemishes.

I've had terrible acne since I was 10 years old, and this kit cleared up some of the bigger problem areas in just one weekend. I've tried pretty much every brand out there, but nothing has worked as well as this. Please bring it back ASAP!

Amazing results with Clear!
from Alberta, Canada
I'm never one to write reviews, but I couldn't be happier with these products! I've had acne mostly all over my face for the last five years and nothing was improving my skin. I had tried many products, seen a dermatologist, and used a few prescription medications. I stumbled across the Clear range via Beautypedia while I was researching other acne products, their ingredients, and how they should work.Used twice a day, my skin began to start clearing almost instantly with this range. I was worried that my face would dry out and peel due to the higher content of active ingredients, however this was not the case. My skin still felt smooth and soft. I have used these products for over three months with no major breakouts since first use. Anything tiny to pop up I would consider normal and would clear within a few days, with nothing that a bit of concealer can't hide. I've also noticed that my skin tone is more radiant and even since using this kit.I would highly recommend anyone struggling with bad acne to try the Clear products. Finally, my skin is under control. I now have the confidence to leave the house without make-up on, which I never thought could happen. Thank you, Paula's Choice team!

Awesome! Not too drying (shocking) and works!!!
from Boston, MA
I stopped taking some medications and started getting the worst acne of my life at 30. It's embarrassing, especially since I have a professional job. I'd used the 2% BHA fluid for a while and liked it, but needed more. I tried the regular strength clear kit because in the past I'd always found benzoyl peroxide to be VERY drying. It worked well, but again, I needed more.I tried the extra strength clear kit and it's been working extremely well. Like no more pimples well. The few I do get are very small and pop up as a small white head and fade quickly. I use all three every morning and night, every day. I feel so much more confident.I will say that I don't find the products help with redness (which is fine, I wear make up). I also need a good moisturizer and until I use it, my skin does feel tight and dry. I don't have any peeling though. I also think that the cleanser should be much larger. The other two products last two or three times longer than the cleanser. It's okay though. I don't mind ordering that separately. Can I also say that Paula's Choice is amazing for offering "sample" travel sizes? Good to try and great for travel.Overall, love the product and use day and night, every single day. My skin has cleared and I LOVE the results.
Great Kit but may dry out your skin with daily use
from Princeton NJ
I've tried the regular strength Acne kit. I do not have acne but I have blemish prone skin that breaks out a lot due to stress/hormone changes. I have combination skin with dry patches, oily patches and blemish/sensitive prone. I really like the toner/liquid it works wonders but can be overly drying if used too much. I use it every couple of days. The spot treatment is okay, I don't see a lot of improvement on my blemishes using it. The toner works 100 times better. I love the face wash, only face wash that doesn't break me out and doesn't dry out my skin. It's easy to want to overload your skin with all three products but I would suggest starting out easy on both the toner and spot treatment to get your skin use to it. It will only make your acne/blemishes worse if you dry out your skin.
Saved my skin and my self-esteem!
from Calgary, Alberta
The Paula's Choice Extra Strength Clear kit was the ONLY thing that worked on my genetically based, middle-age acne. I've had acne since age 11, and in my 40's it worsened to include deep cysts and new breakouts literally every hour. After three days of use, new breakouts gave up and the existing ones were almost gone. I have bought this for people, or recommended it, and everyone is thrilled. I cannot recommend it highly enough. I love it.
from Sidney, Ohio
I first bought the trial size of this product, and when I was running out, decided to purchase the full-size which was out of stock, so I waited, and when it was finally available, I snatched it up!My skin has not looked this good in 18 years of having acne! My skin was very dry and flaky in the beginning from the benzoyl peroxide, but after a few weeks, it's not only clear but wonderful! I haven't been able to go without make-up in years, just to go out somewhere without being too self conscious. I recommend this to anyone wanting to clear their skin up for good. I will never go without again!
