Just Wasn't For My Skin
from Las Vegas, NV
About Me Minimalist
Comments about Clear Extra Strength Acne Exfoliant - 4 oz:
This product was too strong for my skin. On the first use it immediately irritated and burned my skin. This was the first PC product that I was so scared of the reaction it had on my skin that had to run into the bathroom to try to wash it off. I would suggest trying the regular strength Clear Exfoliating Solution prior to trying the extra strength.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Conscious
This magic liquid cured my acne! at 40 years I begun to have hormonal acne I tried acne products but didn't work and made me look older, I actually went to gyn because it was so persistent and wieird but no results.I tried this because I was traveling and had a sample, and it sounds weird but I applied it, walked to next room, and when I returned to the mirror my face looked like "prettiest"It completely changed my face, I apply it with fingers, not cotton ball, twice a day, and THAT'S ALL!, I don't even need the benzoil peroxide lotion, with this magic exfoliant by next month I had perfect skin, and no dryness, I love it and recommend it 100%
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Greasy, More breakouts
I suffer from occasional breakouts and hormonal acne. After having a worse than normal time with my skin, I wanted to try acne targeted products. PC is my go to, but this product was a total miss for me. It feels very greasy and heavy going on and led to more an reoccurring breakouts. I will not be purchasing this again.
Service and delivery comments:
Service and delivery were excellent even if the product was not.

Breakouts stopped in their tracks!!

About Me Beauty Expert
I follow a strict Pauls's skincare routine and have seen a major decrease in blemishes on my combination skin. But I was still getting blemishes and it was frustrating! finally I realized that an exfoliant was the only missing step in the routine that Paula's Choice recommends so I decided to give it a try. All I can say is WOW!!!! I have completely stopped breaking out, its unbelievable! I will never be without this again. Now I truly have the best skin of my life, just like the company slogan haha. The one tiny drawback is that it feels greasy when you apply it but that's only temporary until it absorbs, it's so worth it though. And, it's strong so be careful with dryness as your skin acclimates to this. I recommend that you apply once a day and see how that goes before going up to twice a day. My skin looks amazing!! This is a holy grail product.
Keeps acne under control
from New Brunswick, NJ
After using this twice a day, this has kept my acne under control and I barely get breakouts anymore! It does leave a greasy film on my skin, but it's not that noticeable if you use moisturizer afterwards.
from Phoenix, Arizona
This toner definitely left my skin looking brighter. I do love it but took my skin about a week to get used to it. Did feel bit of tingling first week. Made a bit of difference evening tone and lighted up a sun spot on my cheek. I will purchase it again and would recommend it. I want to try the spot removersee if it works a little better on the sun spot. Keep in mind I've only used it for two weeks and already noticed results.
Great product, would highly recommend
By Sleepy Sunny
from Onatrio, Canada
I've been using this exfoliant for about 6 months now, and I'm fairly happy with the results. I have medium toned, combination, acne prone skin. The acne I've managed to get relatively under control over the years but its left quite a bit of hyperpigmentation in its wake as well as occasional flaky dry spots. The first thing I noticed within a few weeks of adding this product to my routine was reduced acne and smoother skin. It took a few months of regular usage to see a difference in terms of the hyperpigmentation, but I'm quite happy with my skins progress so far.

I've purchased the extra strength exfoliant twice after the regular strength was not available. I thought the extra strength was better but after my last order I've noticed my skin is dry, greasy,rashes and I'm breaking out with more black heads. Maybe my skin is changing due to hormones. I'll have to return to the regular strength.
Great for sensitive, acne-prone skin
from Fredericton, Canada
I've been using this for the last month or so after receiving it in the mail. I was hesitant, given that many products break me out. However, this has been great. It helped with my dehydration-prone skin and really helped moisturize it; plus, I've had less breakouts and no purging using it every other day, and it has not once seemed harsh for my sensitive, reactive skin. I'm kicking myself for not buying it sooner!

SAVED MY SKIN!!!!
from Greensboro, NC
I use this product twice a day with the Paula's Choice 2.5% benzyl peroxide. I LOVE this combination. It's only been about 2 weeks and my face is almost 100% flawless!!! Nothing has worked as well or as quickly to reduce my breakouts. This combination is truly a miracle for my acne-plagued skin. It's even gotten rid of several hyper pigmentation spots I've had for years, and smoothed out some of the pitted scars I have. I will never be without my PC products! I do wish, however, that this came in a larger bottle. One bottle lasts about a month and a half. Although I find it pricey, I am more than willing to fork out the money for PC products because they have saved my skin and restored my self-esteem!!!! I love that there are always sales going on and coupon codes to use, makes purchasing from PC easier. Shipping is usually pretty fast, too! And I love the free samples!!!
