My holy grail product
About Me Acne Prone Skin, Skin Care Enthusiast
Comments about CLEAR Extra Strength Acne Exfoliant - 4 oz:
I am 30 years old and have dealt with acne prone skin since I was a teenager. In pursuit of the perfect routine to minimize breakouts and maintain hydration, I have adjusted my daily skin care routine as new Paula's Choice products are introduced. I realize that not everyones skin reacts the same to certain products, but if you are struggling with acne I strongly recommend giving this a try.I have used this exfoliant for a few years and this is the only product that is a nightly MUST!!! It has completely transformed my skin and minimized my breakouts. I began using this with the CLEAR Extra Strength kit which was perfect starting point for developing a personalized skin care routine. I now use this product in combination with RESIST products (normal to oily skin). I will continue to use this product for as long as it is available.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

First product to EVER clear my acne
About Me Minimalist
I started having cystic acne around the time that I was twelve, due to Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome. I have tried everything to clear my acne, over the counter stuff, prescriptions, alternative meds, even oral prescription medications, everything except oral trentionin, as I was scared of the side effects. Nothing has ever worked. I started using this a month and a half ago. At first once a day, now twice a day. My skin is the clearest it's ever been in 24 years. I actually looked in the mirror the other day and cried because I was so relieved. Right now, I only have one active cyst along my jaw line as compared to the normal 8-14. This product has been a MIRACLE for me. I am a Paula's Choice convert for life. I plan to slowly switch out all my products for Paula's Choice ones. And I plan to tell EVERYONE I know who suffers from acne about this product. Please, don't ever discontinue it!

Just Wasn't For My Skin
from Las Vegas, NV
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%
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!!
By Russian beauty

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.
