About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about CLEAR Acne Cleanser - 6 oz:
After having my son, my skin was out of control with blackheads and blemishes. This Clear Acne Cleanser was the only product I found (after tons of research) that improved my skin drastically. I have now been using this product for nearly a year and I enjoy smoother, clearer skin.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Effective but drying
About Me Skin Care Professional
I use the product once or twice a day. I do believe it's helping keep breakouts under control. I have good skin but now I'm in my upper 20s and get hormonal breakouts or random blemishes. My skin is dry combination and this cleanser really dries me out and sometimes stings but I'm going to keep trying to see if it keeps breakouts away. My friend with oily skin loves this cleanser but if you are not oily it may dry you out. Love this company.
If you breakout, this is a must have!
from Ogden, UT
Another Paula's product I never want to live without. I use to breakout a lot, not so much now that this is my new best friend. It never dries out my skin and never makes it feel tight. I have one by my sink and one in the shower.

Made skin burn
About Me Minimalist
This cleanser made my sensitive skin very irritated. I woke up to a red, tight face. I'm looking for a good cleanser for sensitive, acne prone skin - but this isn't the one for me unfortunately.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Gave me a severe allergic reaction
from New Brunswick, NJ
This gave me a HORRIBLE allergic reaction! It made my skin so red and dry that it stung 24/7 unless I put vaseline on it. I already have very dry skin, and although this did keep my acne under control it still gave me that awful reaction. My skin has never reacted this badly to any product. Maybe it's just my skin being way too sensitive, but please be wary of this cleanser is you have sensitive skin!
Great and excellent price!!
from Phoenix, Arizona
Great cleanser. I've tried Clinique and Estee Lauder and feel they have much alcohol. Did not over dry my skin and left it feeling super clean. I did see a bit of difference in regards to pores. Would definitely recommend, worth a try!

Great cleanser for combination skin, bad packaging
About Me Beauty Expert
I've used Paulas Choice for 5+ years now, and this is my favourite cleanser for my oily combination skin with blackheads/acne. It gently dissolves oil, without leaving the skin feeling dry or tight. My main problem with this product is the packaging. It leaks very easily, so don't bring this cleanser with you on a trip, especially not on an airplane! the cap also breaks off easily, so don't try to "tighten" it. Wish PC could fix their packaging, I love the products except for this one thing!

Changed my skin
from Boyne City, MI
For the last probably 2-3 years my skin took a turn for the worst I didn't know why, but I would have break out after break out after break out. I started to try and fight the breakouts by using anything and everything that said it was for "acne prone skin", but what I found was many of these products either made minimal impact or made the problem worse. I stumbled upon Paula's choice when I saw the price of this product I thought "why the heck not?" and it was the best choice I made. Within just a few days I saw noticable improvements and within in a month new breakouts were few and far between. I now get compliments on my skin and I immediately give credit to Paula's choice. This product is also great for sensitive skin as it doesn't have a smell or color, it rinses off easily without leaving a residue, and doesn't dry out the skin like many other acne cleansers I've tried. I give this two big thumbs up!
Simple and Effective, even for Removing Makeup
By Glad I Found Paula's
from Glendale Heights, IL
This is a straightforward cleanser that does what it's marketed to do: cleans the skin thoroughly and without irritation. That being said, everyone's skin is different, so I'd recommend giving this a try and keeping your receipt for a refund if it doesn't work out.After years of using Proactiv, and before that other over the counter products with other bells and whistles and active ingredients, I was doubtful that going simpler would work on my oily and acne prone skin. Ultimately Proactiv ceased to be as effective for me this year, and I'm seeing a dermatologist for hereditary and hormonal acne (SIGH), but before I saw a dermatologist I tried this out, along with the Clear line. 5 months later, I'm still using it, even with my prescription products.For my oily and acne prone skin, this is surprisingly effective cleaning off dirt and make-up. Not only did my face feel much cleaner, but I could tell it was cleaner because there's little-to-no visible residue that transfers to my towel after drying my face, or onto the cotton ball after using a toner. I doubt it would remove waterproof eye liner (I can dream, can't I?), but it works on foundation, eyeshadow primer, eyeshadow and in most cases my waterproof mascara as well, AND it's gentle enough to be used around the eyes, which means it saves a step of using makeup remover! At times, it does make my face feel a little tight in winter (I live in the Midwest, so bitter cold and dry weather in winter) but when that happens I just make sure to use extra moisturizer and/or buffer my prescription acne products with moisturizer to avoid dryness. For me, this is a benefit, because it's helpful to stay simple with the cleanser and leave the heavy hitting to my prescription acne potions, which have the potential to be more irritating.I drop a star, because it is more expensive than over-the-counter products. In particular, I tried the Olay Foaming Wash for sensitive skin and found it to be comparable. But, I prefer the texture of this and it cleans my makeup off better than the Olay face wash. Plus, a little goes a long way with this product, so I can see myself working on one tube for several months, so I don't mind as much the price since I'm happy with the performance of the product.
Great for sensitive, oily, acne-prone skin!
from New Jersey, USA
Paula's Choice saved me from a very irritating skincare routine. I have very sensitive skin, and I was previously using the Dermalogica Clear Skin line for acne-prone skin, which has a bunch of irritants in it. It wasn't until I read on Beautypedia how harmful Dermalogica's skincare products are for you that I stopped using the products and switched over entirely to Paula's Choice. This cleanser is great!!! It is not overly expensive and it gets the job done. I feel that it has helped to treat and prevent acne. A little bit goes a long way, and it does not hurt my sensitive skin! I have had so much trouble finding products to work for sensitive and oily skin, because so many with oily skin are not also sensitive, but Paula's Choice makes it easy! I will repurchase forever. Thank you, Paula!
