Red itchy skin
Comments about CLEAR Regular Strength Acne Kit - Complete Kit:
I have been using the 2% BHA exfoliant for a while now and love it. I recently had a bad break out from stress and diet and decided to switch to this regime for a period of time. After using this for 2 days, my skin constantly felt itchy, especially the sides of my face. There was an almost bumpy appearance to it. It felt slightly swollen on the sides as well. I couldn't figure out what it was. I then realized I had switched my facial regime. I washed all of the products from this off my face, put back my normal moisturizer and prayed for the best. It took 2 days for the itching to go away and am back to just using the exfoliant with other products I use. Not for me!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I can't feel the process of it.
I just bought this product and been using it for over a week now. Not sure if it will getting better or not but I can't see any noticeable difference after 7 days used. And I can't see any red reduce also even I am strictly following the steps both AM & PM.
Service and delivery comments:
The package delivered on time, neat and well packed.
The ONLY product that works for my adult acne
from New York, NY
About Me 25-34, Combination skin, Olive skin
I'm in my 30s and started breaking out after going off birth control in my late 20s. I started seeing a dermatologist, who prescribed me probably five different prescriptions over three years. Some of them worked a bit, but nothing worked well enough for me to go more than a week or so without a new, painful zit. Finally, after the prescriptions got too expensive for me to continue, even with insurance, I thought I'd give Paula's Choice Clear collection a try.I have been incredibly and pleasantly surprised by how well this has worked for me. In about a month and a half, my skin has very noticeably cleared up to the point where I am comfortable leaving the house without foundation/concealer again.Unlike many people with acne, I do not have particularly oily skin, so I'm always wary of products that dry me out excessively, but this doesn't seem to do that. I use it in combination with RESIST Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum during the day and SKIN BALANCING Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum With Retinol at night.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Teen loves the fact that it works, when she uses it.
from San Antonio, TX
About Me Mother Of A Hormonal Teen
My teen had red juicy pimples on her cheeks, chin, forehead, nose and when she uses it diligently it clears up.Bought the CLEAR Regular Strength Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution with 2% Salicylic Acid & CLEAR Extra Strength Daily Skin Clearing Treatment separately to try it. My daughter previously tried the Extra Strength Anti-Redness Exfoliating lotion but it dried her skin too much so we switched her to Regular Strength which turned out to be just right.She uses SKIN BALANCING Oil-Reducing Cleanser instead of the CLEAR Pore Normalizing Cleanser because we are wary of the Triclosan in it. A teenager's hormones are disrupted enough on their own without any extra outside help from Triclosan.The FDA ruled on Sept. 2, 2016 and announced that Triclosan, a toxic chemical ingredient associated with hormone disruption in people, will no longer be allowed in antibacterial hand soaps & body washes. However, THE RULING DOES NOT COVER ACNE PRODUCTS, yet. Logic does not follow well in that ruling. Skin is skin and it absorbs toxins the same way despite what part is exposed the toxin. Guess Acne products have better lobbyists.Wish Paula's Choice would make the choice to replace Triclosan with another antibacterial agent that's not a known hormone disrupter so we can feel good about buying all 3 products in the line.I have been using Paula's Choice Products for 10 years with great results, so I was happy to get my teen to use it too.
great for teens!
I purchased this for my teen who started to experience mild breakouts. I started with the travel kit, in the case it did not work for her. (It was nice to have the option of purchasing a small amount before buying the larger bottles) It has cleared up her small pimples and blackheads. She loves it! She did experience a mild stinging when she used the toner for the first time. but it quickly went away, and it hasn't bothered her again. A great product.

I am so happy with this product!

About Me Beauty Conscious
Wow---- I am so so happy. I noticed a difference right away (within 2 days). Before finding this product I would come home from a long day at work and find a new bump that had formed under my skin. I tried many drug store and natural products, but nothing was really doing it. I am so relieved that my skin is clearing and my confidence is returning. Best money I have ever spent!

Step up from proactive
By Fighter pilots wife
from Panama City, FL
About Me Minimalist
My husband used proactive for many years and after we got married I asked him to try Paula's choice since his face always seemed dry and still broke out. He is a fighter pilot and wears a helmet that traps in sweat on his forehead many hours of the week. 2 weeks after he started Paula's choice he hasn't seen a breakout. I might start him on the anti aging line soon but one step at a time with a man...
Finally, A Cure For Acne
from Ponca City, Oklahoma
About a month ago I started having horrible breakouts on my forehead, cheeks, and around my mouth. I should also mention that before these breakouts, I had closed comodonal acne as well as blackheads on my nose and chin. All of these blemishes made my skin look tired and dirty, not to mention red and oily. This was very frustrating for me as I had not been able to get rid of them with my normal cleansing routine. So, after seeing several reviews on Youtube, I ordered the Paula's Choice Clear Regular Strength Acne Kit. After my skin went through the purging process I had virtually no acne. My skin was smooth, my pores were tiny, my blemishes were all gone (except for some acne scars), and my skin tone was completely even. I honestly believe this kit is the one cure for acne!!! I must note that the spot treatment made my skin a bit red, so I started alternating use and used it every other day.
Arrived promptly and in excellent condition.
from Dallas, TX
I ordered the trial kit and after two weeks ordered the larger set. I wasn't expecting much, I just knew I had to do something about my constant breakouts. These products not only keep pimples at bay, but are slowly but surly making the bumps underneath my skin vanish as well.
from Katy, Texas
I stopped using the birth control pill and my skin went a little crazy. I just had little bumps under my skin all over my forehead, several little teeny tiny white heads on my cheeks and sebaceous filaments all over my nose and chin. My typical PC regimen just wasn't working for me so I thought I would try this. IT WORKS! I have been using the 2%BHA liquid and the Resist BHA for years but BHA formula for the Clear line works so much better for me. I thought it would be quite drying and I have super sensitive skin but it was the opposite. It was so much more gentle than the other BHA formulations I have tried. It actually soothed my skin. And the texture of the the Clear BHA is like water... no slippery feeling, no waiting for it to "dry" before I apply my other products. It's fantastic. I also bought the Resist Weightless Toner... that stuff is amazing! And I use the Resist Ultra light antioxidant serum as my moisturizer as night. My skin is almost back to normal.Oh and I still use the skin balancing cleanser (LOVE IT) to clear my makeup and then use the CLEAR cleanser to make sure I get it all off. I don't think I could use just the CLEAR cleanser to get all of my makeup off. Highly recommend.
