GREAT FOR CLEARING UP ACNE/BREAKOUTS
from Peoria, AZ
About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about CLEAR Regular Strength Acne Treatment with 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide - 2.25 oz:
Clear is the appropriate name for this. My derma. gave me doxycycline for my huge cyst between my brows (reaction from another PC product SB BHA 2% Liq.) but turned out I was allergic because tiny red bumps appeared all over my face. She then prescribed 2.5% hydrocortisone cream which broke me out even more/worst(whiteheads/pustules/papules). Yes I lost my mind, nearly forgot about my huge cyst. But, this BP saved my entire face. Panicked by what's happened I use this against my derma's instructions which was to just stop the cream & use only gentle cleanser, no BHA's no BP's etc (good thing I bought a sample size before & had this on deck). I kept cleaning my face with my regular anti-bacterial cleanser not PC (I've been using since I was a kid & has been the only reason I have kept acne at bay). Then applied Olay Regenerist serum which I've also been using for years as my light moisturizer. I then spread this BP all over my face because I wanted to have a buffer between my clean skin & BP just in case I was allergic to it since this was my first time using it. I did this day & night & within a week my face was clear again. So thankful this BP worked in conjunction with my other 2 products I mentioned. It did dry out my skin but as soon I stopped using it when my face cleared, the dryness wasn't an issue anymore. Unexpectedly love this now & I still even have a little bit left in the sample size. My huge cyst is still there but my derma. will be chopping it off since (steroid injections didn't work on it). Will post review on that product next
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It works and it isn't expensive!
I have acne prone skin due to PCOS and nothing except epiduo was working for me. When I no longer had a prescription I went on a hunt for a product that would work. Nothing from the drug store that you could buy over the counter worked for me. Everything was too harsh, would strip my skin and make my acne WORSE. Then I got wind of Paula's Choice. Her products changed my skin. I use Retinol at night, and a hydrating mask. I used clinical redness control for my sensitive skin and acne control after every face wash. My skin is changing so much, my scars are fading and I haven't had a new pimple in days - that's a big deal for me. My black heads have also been reduced and I have to use less make up to cover up. I'm so grateful this actually works, doesn't irritate and isn't going to break the bank. Paula, I want to be your spokeswoman!

Cleared up my acne and oily skin
from Lake City, FL
About Me Minimalist
Cannot believe I found this product. After a couple of days, my skin went from oily, inflamed papule acne (no puss inside), to clear skin. After years of using Dermatologist recommended products (expensive I may add) for my semi-sensitive and combo skin, Benzoyl Peroxide is my holy grail! I use it after I wash my face, and wait a little while to apply my moisturizer. My skin is clearer than ever before, and I am so thankful to have found PC skincare! If you are embarrassed about your acne, red bumps, or oil, please please use this!!

To Drying For All-Over Use...
This product came with my purchase of the Regular Strength Trial Kit. I applied this only to my acne-prone areas twice & it lead to me having dry skin like I have never experienced before. Alligator-type drying which took over 5 days to resolve. I will use this as a spot treatment only when I feel a blemish coming on.

I use this every night
from Chicago, IL
I'm 58, but I use this product every night on my nose, chin and forehead, which can still break out. It is not too drying and works well as a preventive product. One thing I've never understood is why they don't post the product expiration date on the web site, like they do for every other product that has an expiration date.

Holy grail against acne!
from Manila, Philippines
I've had acne for soooo long that having absolutely NO ACNE AT ALL feels alien to me. I've used the 2% BHA liquid for many months but I found that it could not control flare-ups and cystic acne. So I decided to give Paula's BP a shot. Local/drugstore brands usually cause my skin to turn red raw and itchy. Plus it is a pain to find lower strengths in my skincare-forsaken country.This is the only BP that my face likes. I don't know what sorcery is in this product but this one just works! In 3 months, it reduced my moderate/mildy severe acne down to zero without the dryness, peeling, redness and itching...on my face. On my neck though, it caused severe itching. So weird...Thank goodness I do not have as severe acne there as I had on my face. Still, I give this product 5 stars because it works so well on my face which is my main problem so it's all good. :)And now, pics or it didn't happen: (apologies for the difference in lighting and image quality)
Service and delivery comments:
I only wish it was easier to get PC products in the Philippines :(

Did not work for me
I used this after cleansing, but did not feel like it cleared up or prevented new breakouts. It seemed to be the correct strength for my skin, but it did not produce the results I was looking for.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Works great as an all-over preventative
from Austin, TX
Paula's Choice Clear Regular Strength Acne Treatment with 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide has completely transformed my skin. I use it all over my face in the morning (so I don't bleach my pillowcases) after cleansing and exfoliating with her 2% BHA and before moisturizer and I no longer have problem skin. It's much gentler than other BP products I've used in the past--I get no drying or peeling. It took a few months to really see a difference but it still amazes me every time I look in the mirror.

Didn't work as advertised
By Umhappy Customer
from Washington DC
I used this product in the evening after using cleanser and PC toner but pimples that popped up took more than 2 weeks to clear. I used this product for more than 2 months but it didn't didn't "pass on pimples" nor did it clear my face of breakouts. Save your money and buy another pdouct, or if you're determined to have this one, I would get a stronger strength.
