About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about Clear Regular Strength Acne Kit - Complete Kit:
I must say I am OBSESSED with PC! I had been on the three step system for over a year and my skin was much better than it had ever been (only breakouts around that time of month). With the exchange rate being so bad, I held off on reordering the line - thinking I would be fine. My wedding was two months away but I didn't think anything of it. Well, i should have. My skin after a week of not using PC was AWFUL. I was breaking out like crazy and they were large cystic pimples...rightly so, I started freaking out! I reordered PC Clear line and subbed the extra strength exfoliate instead of regular strength. After receiving the shipment rather quickly (going to Canada) my skin was cleared up within a week and a half and clear by my wedding day. I will NEVER go off PC again!!! If you are hmmming and hahing about purchasing anything from PC (whether it is price of skepticism) I would say DO IT, nothing has cleared my skin faster. Love you PC!!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Amazing but start slowly on sensitive skin
With just a couple uses of this system, my persistent whiteheads cleared up and my skin was very soft. I really liked that the products are fragrance free, because I often have adverse reactions to anything scented. If you have sensitive skin, I would not recommend the twice-a-day routine right away. I used these twice a day, and although they made my skin feel amazing at first, by the third or fourth day I had some red, burning patches on my skin. I took a break for a couple days and I'm going to try every other day to start again. So happy with the performance of the products, just start out slowly if you have sensitive skin!
Great skincare products!!

I love this kit. My acne has gotten better, but my skin just looks so much healthier and more vibrant altogether.

Only non-prescription system that has ever worked for me.
About Me Minimalist
I have struggled with acne since I was a teenager, and finally got in under control with a combination of prescription topicals and an antibiotic when I was about 19. I was thrilled with how clear my skin was, but I hated the idea that I was on an antibiotic constantly and that I would be stuck on prescriptions for the rest of my life, so when I was 22, I went off of all of the meds.My skin was great for about a year washing with a gentle cleanser and moisturizing, but eventually my acne came back with a vengeance. I tried a bunch of different drugstore products and even some pricey department store products, but nothing worked. I was beginning to panic as it got worse and worse, and I started to scar.Finally, a friend recommended Paula's Choice to me, and it has changed my life. It's a simple system, takes about 5 minutes to use every day, and it has finally cleared my skin up without any prescriptions. I'm amazed and thrilled. I love that it doesn't have any harsh fragrances or dyes. I love the way my skin has cleared up. I'm so grateful.A few notes:- I do find these products a bit drying, particularly in the winter months (I live in a cold climate), but I just add a moisturizer to my routine during those times that I need it. Not a problem.- I have found that any occasional pimples I do get seem to leave a darker mark behind than pimples did before I was using these products. I'm not sure why that is, but since these are few and far between, it's something I can live with.- I have noticed that the Benzoyl Peroxide in the spot treatment does not stain my pillowcases or towels! I have no idea how this is possible, but I'm not going to questions it :)- My skin is incredibly clear using this system every single day, morning and night. Oddly, if I skip even just one use, I seem to get a breakout immediately (usually mild). I think this is more a comment on my skin than the product, though.Overall, I would highly recommend this product to anyone struggling with acne, especially at this price point.

I would use it but, I am hesitant to buy it again
from Toronto, ON
When i bought this kit i was having major acne problems wiyh my skin because i had been scrubbing it too much with exfolient way too often then i should and my skin was a dissaster. I used this kit until it finished, and I noticed results within a couple weeks. I used it day & night everyday in the proper order and my skin cleared up. I really liked it because it is a very convenient kit and made my skin smooth, diminished enlarged pores, and black heads, as well as did a pretty darn good job at vanishing blemishes. The cleanser is gentle and I especially like the spot blemish treatment cream. It works really really well. I would put some on my blemish and leave it to dry before I go to bed and in the morning any blemish i had will be gone unless it was a very troublesome pimple then it will take a couple days to actually heal but the spot treatment will definitely deminish it enough that you can cover it well with concealer.The toner is my favourite because it is like the icing on the cake. After I cleansed my face and put that toner on, I saw a change in my skin immediately. It's like magic. One tip I can give to everyone with troubled skin is PLEASE DO NOT USE SCRUBS TO EXFOLIATE YOUR SKIN ON YOUR FACE! If you like to use them, ONLY use them once a week or once every two weeks. That is the worst thing you can do to your skin and it will only make it worse. The liquid exfoliant in this kit is the best way to exfoliate your face. It will clear your skin right up without irritating your skin. I really like this kit and I would use it again but I am hesitant to buy it again now because my skin is 100% better now after using it and that it may not really need to use this now. I have only a couple things that i didnt like about using this. I didn't like was that in the morning my skin would be extremely oily. I guess it's because of the salycilic acid, I'm not sure, but also it dried my skin out. I would advise to use the toner once a day at first and then see how your skin feels and increase as needed.

I never struggled with acne, except for the occasional break out here and there, but last fall my skin started to break out like nothing I had ever experienced before. No matter what I tried- all of the drug store products to my prescription medication- the acne persisted and actually got worse overtime to the point of scarring. I tried PC's trial kit and within a week noticed a visible difference in my skin. I have been using this kit religiously for the past year and my scars are fading, and the number of compliments I receive on my skin increase every month. I am very grateful that I tried PC and would absolutely recommend to anyone struggling with acne. Thank you PC!

I have tried many products and this is the only set that has really worked for my skin. I have oily and blemish prone skin and this regimen gives me a beautiful, clear completion. It can be a little drying, so just make sure to use some moisturizer in addition to the products in the kit. I will absolutely continue to repurchase this and do not even feel the urge to try other skin care products because this works so well. I've tried few other Paula's Choice products and the same applies; it seems that everything she makes is completely phenomenal!!
I bought this for my 17 yr old daughter for her breakouts. After her using it for a week she noticed a difference in her skin right away. Her acne lessen almost over night. the product did not dry out her skin what so ever.
from Chicago, IL
I purchased this product hoping that it would help with common and hormonal breakouts and redness. I'm really disappointed that after a full month and couple of weeks there are no real results and it's left my skin dry. When I noticed my skin getting dry I reduced the application of the exfoliating solution and skin clearing treatment to once a day and then 3 times a week. I do like the pore minimizing cleanser. It has reduced some enlarged pores on my forehead. I also like how light weight it is. However, my acne has remained the same and I'm very sad about that. I hope another Paula's Choice treatment will work because this one has not done the job.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

May works with others, not me
from Sterling, VA
At first when I purchased this set after tons of recommendatiosn, I was excited to try them out. I believed they would cure my acne which I suddenly got a lot all over my two cheeks. However, after two months trying to use it, there was no different, even worse than before. It might work with other people's skins, not mine. The facial wash dries out my skin a lot, stretches my skin out if I dont follow IMMEDIATELY with toner, btw it is PC toner too. The toner is fine. I dont know if the exfoliation causes my breaking out, but when I stopped use it, my face calmed a bit and did not crazilly break out more. All over three products, I wished the treatment would do its job, but sadly it didnt. I applied it twice, or even three times a day, but nothing happened to my acne, not even drying it or cursing it, it was only sitting on top of my acne. :( Im so sorry to say but I was so disappointed.P.s: i wanted to add pictures of before and after but I dont want to show my whole face. The after-face has two cheeks covered with redness and acnes, and swelling.
