Comments about CLEAR Acne Cleanser - 6 oz:
I've been using this for 2 years, and it has really helped get my breakouts under control. It can be a little drying initially, but I found that went away after continued use. It's the best thing I've tried outside of a prescription, and I've recommended it to everyone still dealing with acne after their teenage years.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Really greta product, does not dry the skin yet gives a really clean feeling.

I have been using this for two weeks now and it has helped my skin so much. I work out daily and my skin was taking a hit from the sweat. I even use a clarisonic and my skin was still breaking out. I decided to try this out and my skin is back to normal. Plus, you only need a small amount because it lathers so well! I have combo skin and this didn't dry my skin out and didn't burn.

Not for me
from Miami, FL
At first, this product was good for my VERY acne prone and sensitive skin. I felt clean and I thought it would get rid of the small pimples I was getting because it left my skin radiant when I used it. However, it always left a stinging sensation when I used it and it worried me a little but i decided to keep on using it. Fast forward 2 weeks and it was a hot mess. It broke out my skin like crazy and I went without wearing makeup or adding anything to my skin other than this cleanser to see what was making me break out and it was definitely the cleanser. It also gave me very dry patches on my chin and cheeks. Was not for me at all.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Brand Buyer
I tried this product at a friends house and I have been using it ever since. I have dry, sensitive skin with large pores around my nose. It is the first product to combat my large pores and not overly dry or irritate my skin. I use it twice a day in the summer and once a day now that the weather is colder. I follow with the 2% BHA Liquid at night and I have seen dramatic improvement in over all skin clarity and size of pores. My 14 year old has started using it as well. He is struggling with moderate acne and it is better than anything else we have tried. Our skin couldn't be different but it is great for both of us!
Love it. My favorite cleanser.

About Me Beauty Conscious
This is my third bottle of this cleanser--I love it. It is not a miracle product (but short of prescription acne medication what is?) but it is a definitely effective for acne/blemishes. The three times I have ran out of this cleanser I have broken out. I can see a clear difference in my skin when I use this product. It keeps acne and pores under control. love it.
This is an amazing product that is great for acne. I use it twice a day and it never dries my skin out. I have always suffered from acne on my face, chest, and back. When I use this consistently I have almost no breakouts, aside from occasionally in the summer when it's really hot out. At first I was reluctant to purchase it, because it's rather expensive compared to drugstore brands. However, I think it's actually quite comparable in price when you consider the size of the bottle. Sometimes it flows out a bit too fast, so just be conscientious of that when using it. You don't need to use a lot, so the bottle lasts a long time. Overall, I think it's reasonable compared to store brand face wash, given it's size and efficacy.

I use the cleanser at least once per day. Twice per day if my skin is oily (in the summer).It's gentle on my sensitive skin and helps to prevent & control acne. 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.

The perfect cleanser
I use this product everyday , and i was amazed by it ,, cleans my face freshly without drying it , somehow it reduced my acne , i've always struggled to find a simple cleanser that does not dry my skin nor make it unclean .. I tried so many and most of them broke-me-out or dried my skin and cause harsh under skin bumps .. This cleanser is perfection for my i took 3 of this and will repurchace it for sure , also the price is good !
not for sensitive skin
I'm currently dealing with sudden cystic acne for the first time at age 31. The frustration! I'm a long-time Paula's Choice fan, so instead of using the ultra-harsh cleansers my dermatologist recommended, I decided to try the CLEAR cleanser first. My skin is sensitive and is on the dry side, so I was already worried about acne-specific cleansers drying me out even further. Unfortunately, this cleanser did just that, along with causing serious irritation on my upper cheeks and all around my eyes. I can't speak on the results because I stopped using it after two uses - I do know from Paula that burning/stinging doesn't mean the product is "working", it just means your skin is irritated! I would advise against this cleanser for anyone with sensitive skin that's already prone to dryness.
