Comments about CLEAR Regular Strength Acne Exfoliant - 4 oz:
it is a good exfoliant, doesn't cause any dryness or redness, even though I have super sensitive fair skin, however it didn't remove my blackheads, but I'm noticing a huge difference if do not use it - blackheads gets way worse
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a miracle worker
I'm not one to write reviews but I'm compelled to share how I feel about this product because I know what it's like to struggle with acne. I'm 34 with acne prone, combination skin. I used this product in the past and loved it but stopped for a few years because I was living abroad and couldn't get it. I just started using it again and it's amazing. I use this BHA every night after I wash my face and when I look at my face in the morning I literally see big results. This is the only product I've ever used that actually visibly produces results overnight. Seriously, I'm amazed. If I have any bumps, pimples or red areas from past breakouts they're remarkably faded/reduced in the morning and then they completely vanish as you keep using the product. It even helps for dry patches (I get dry patches on my chin otherwise I have oily skin). My skin is more evenly toned and clear. It changes your skins texture! And It really does prevent more break outs. I don't have serious acne, just prone to it so I use it once a day and that's enough for me but you can use it twice a day. If you have more acne you can always try the extra strength. Try it!!

I absolutely love this. I found the Resist and lotion ones to be not a great fit, but this is perfect. I think it's the redness calming factor. It took out my pesky cyst. I highly recommend!

Magic in a bottle
By T-Mark Phung

This magic in a bottle just does as what it claims. I've already seen an improvement in my acne-prone skin's texture. I only use it once every night in place of the toner step (but I'm about to add a PC's toner in my regimen). Those redness and blemishes become smaller overnight!!

About Me Minimalist
I've struggled with acne my whole life and have tried countless products from the heavy duty prescription to the all natural methods and nothing has ever been as effective as Paula's Choice products. I ordered mainly sample and travel sizes to only last a week so I wouldn't waste any money and I've noticed SUCH a difference. My redness is down, my breakouts are under control and my skin is the softest it's been in years. I almost lost hope in my skin and PC was the last thing to try on my list. My skin isn't perfect yet, but I'm confident that when I try other products and create my personalized routine that I will achieve my skin goals!Also, the reason I'm writing this review on this product specifically is because this is the product I am attributing most of my skin progress to! I highly recommend it!

Perfect for sensitive skin
I use the exfoliant like a toner at least once per day. Twice per day if I have a little acne. It's gentle on my sensitive skin and helps to prevent & control acne. My only complaint is that the bottle is so small. I wish they had a larger more economical size.Prior to discovering Paula's Choice I struggled with acne all my life. Now finally I have clear skin. I experimented with the various products until I found the perfect routine. I have sensitive skin and I live in Toronto where the winters are cold. In the winter I adjust my routine if my skin is dry. These are my favourite products:Morning:CLEAR Pore Normalizing Cleanser or CALM Redness Relief Cleanser (winter)CALM Redness Relief TonerCLEAR Regular Strength Daily Skin Clearing Treatment With 2.5% Benzoyl PeroxideCALM Redness Relief MoisturizerEveningCLEAR Pore Normalizing CleanserCLEAR Regular Strength Acne ExfoliantSKIN PERFECTING 8% AHA Gel ExfoliantorRESIST Intensive Wrinkle-Repair Retinol Serum

Simply put, I love this product. I have rosacea and get periodic hormonal acne and I find if I use this twice a day, these problems are greatly reduced. If I take a break from this product, my skin becomes more problematic. Here's the caveat: the travel size bottle, which I assume is meant for *travel*, leaks like crazy. It is so annoying. I travel a lot for my work and don't want to be without this product, but I need to tape the edges of the top, both where it meets the bottom and the flip top lid in order to keep the product inside the bottle. I am not the first customer to mention this--come on Paula's Choice, please do something about this fixable problem.

I've been using this product for around 3 weeks, has not worked at all. I've had even more break outs then normal while using. Such a shame, I had high hopes for it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Good product, but packaging is awful
from Austin, TX
Good product, but the packaging is so incredibly frustrating. Do not buy unless you can leave upright on a counter without any risk of the bottle being knocked over.I was using this product twice daily and had some great results. I was about 1/3 of the way through the bottle when I needed to travel somewhere and take the bottle with me. I had to wrap the bottle in its own separate plastic bag, and when I got to my destination, I found that the bottle had tipped over horizontally and the *entire* bottle had leaked out. This is so disappointing. I would've been happy to rate this product 5 stars if they would fix the leaky bottles.
