Wish this had a screw-top cap!
About Me Beauty Expert
Comments about CLEAR Regular Strength Acne Exfoliant - 4 oz:
This is my favourite of all the BHAs (having tried the lotion, the 1% liquid, a sample of the gel and this one). I like the formula and I know it works (when I run out I break out, when I use it regularly it keeps all pimples at bay).I also like the Clear as I find it soothes redness. Even though I have combo skin that tends to be dry, this doesn't dry it out at all. My BIG annoyance however, is the packaging. The flip caps leaks horribly. I don't have this problem with my resist AHA with the screw top. TWICE now on different trips, my BHA has leaked out all over my cosmetic bag. Now, the liquid is clear so it's not the end of the world, but it's like pouring money down the drain. Please change the packaging! I will continue to re-purchase but am not sure how to handle future trips as it's really not suitable to pack, and it's over 100 mL so I can't take as a carry-on...
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

GREAT STARTER BUT WAS MISSING SOMETHING...
About Me Beauty Conscious
This came with the Regular Strength Trila kit. Skin felt softer and smooth after one application. Obsorbs quickly. Saw results after a few days. Works on lessening blackheads. Unsure if it is this product or the BP that is lessening the redness of the cystic acne. Only wish this "CLEAR" line of exfoliant came in a Gel. The light, water consistency liquid makes it VERY hard to apply with your hands but if you use a cotton applicator, I feel much of the product is being wasted.I have combination acne-prone skin with cystic acne that tends to make appearances once in a while along jawline down to chin and neck area. As I age, I am noticing that I need a little more moisture but not to much. With this exfoliant, I had to use a moisturizer after use due to it drying out my skin. This is not such a bad thing, for this product is meant for acne-prone/oily skin but maybe if your younger. I tried a sample of the Skin Perfecting 2% BHA and it has worked wonders for me. It just works better with no need for a moisturizer.

I love this. It made my skin so, so soft without making it more oily than it already is (a difficult balance to strike, when your combination skin has both shiny spots and dry patches). I used up the entire 1 oz bottle (which took me about a month) without noticing much of a reduction in pore size, which was disappointing, but WOW did it get rid of the redness that's usually on my cheeks! I couldn't believe how even my skin tone became. It also feels GREAT when I put it on (which I do by pouring some on a cotton round and rubbing it all over my face). It makes my skin feel so soft that I almost don't even need moisturizer! I love this product.

My favorite exfoliant
from Wa state
I prefer this to the other liquid 2% bha. I'm sure exactly why. I think the texture is lighter. I had seriously dry skin until just a few months ago. I've used PC for years now but I wasn't religious about sun protection and I'd often fall sleep without a nighttime skin routine. Busy mom thing and all. My skin is absolutely normal now. For ages I tried glycolics because I read they are best for dry skin but I just couldn't tolerate them. The texture of my skin has drastically changedsonce using this twice a day. I've never had acne or blackheads but I have large pores and little white head things. All that is changing. I'm 36 and still have skin on the sensitive side, however i would not describe my skin as dry any longer. I've learned so much from this website and after chucking anything with irritants I am thrilled to be able to find oil on my forehead at the end of the day! Anyone who has suffered from chronic dry skin knows what I mean. I welcome the need to blot with a tissue now. If you have skin on the drier side don't be afraid to try a bha. It's one of the products I know is making a huge difference. My skin has finally become balanced and soft.

Great in combination with the cleanser
I have tried most of the BHAs and AHAs PC has to offer. They all made some difference, but this product is a miracle in comparison. I am on my second bottle and I can still see improvements every morning when I wake up. I don't even get anxious anymore when I get occasional hormonal breakouts or try a new makeup product that clogs my pores because I know this will clear everything quickly. I don't need to use a spot treatment. It works best in combination with the cleanser. On another note: I know a lot of people like the liquid, but I think it would be great if they also introduced a gel version of this to make it easier to apply and travel with. The bottle has leaked on me a couple times and it is always devastating. I also don't enjoy creating a lot of waste by using cotton pads all the time. Just a suggestion. I'll keep using the product no matter what.
definitely saw improvement

This helped my skin a lot, but it hasn't completely eliminated my acne and redness, especially the stubborn acne on my chest and shoulders. I'm going to try some of the other pc exfoliants and see which one gives me the best results.
Best salicylic lotion I've tried so far
from Santa Barbara
-I like the water consistency. -I like the performance on acne and clogged pores. -Retin-a micro 0.01 doesn't stand close to the rate of pore unclogging of this Bha-Obviously, no alcohol which gives salicylic acid a bad reputation.Bottom line: get it if you canTop notch. I think that it is essential for really oily and skin. Although, application causes minor to moderate tightness in the skin. I apply Bha straight after cleansing. I have to admit that my acne.org cleanser may be the cause. So, It's my experience and I don't deduct any points for that. I will try to switch to paulas cleanser which are more gentle judging by the samples I've used and I'll maybe update the review.
from Austin, TX
Oh man oh man do I love this product. If I run out my face immediately becomes dry and I seem to break out. This stuff actually keeps my skin hydrated and definitely reduces the redness from my blemishes. I put a small amount on a cotton ball and rub on my face every time I wash with the Clear cleanser. Great stuff!!!!!

I really hope this product is never reformulated or discontinued. it's like a holy grail for me. The first time I used it, a positive difference in my skin was already visible the next morning - smaller, cleaner looking pores, a reduction in the redness and size of all active acne spots, and now a few months since that first use, my skin is nearly flawless again. Together with the pore normalizing cleanser this has really helped me to beat my mild acne and it even helps my acne hyperpigmentation. I just dab a bit on my face with a clean wash cloth and a little goes a long way. It's definitely formulated to be very gentle but I have accidentally irritated my skin when I got overzealous and used too much

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!
from Columbus, OH
This product is absolutely wonderful. I ran out of it a month ago before traveling for the holidays and have had recurrent breakouts ever since. I had been faithfully using this product for the previous 9 months and had been breakout-free. I will never be without this product again!
