Burned and Irritated My Skin
from Las Vegas, NV
About Me Minimalist
Comments about CLEAR Acne Cleanser - 6 oz:
I have tried several acne cleansers since I was a teenager. None of these cleansers have ever irritated or burned my skin. The Clear Pore Normalizing Cleanser has been the first acne-specific cleanser I have ever used that has burned my skin. I am thankful that I had the PC moisturizer and serum samples on hand as they helped to repair my skin within a matter of days. I have tried samples of all the PC cleansers and my favorite so far has been the Resist foaming cleanser. I suggest using that cleanser instead as it repairs your skin, makes it look great, and does not have any ingredients that could irritate your skin.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Conscious
I have everything about this product BUT.. the cap is so terrible. I can't live without this cleanser and I hate every time that I travel the bottle will leak out!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
After having my son, my skin was out of control with blackheads and blemishes. This Clear Acne Cleanser was the only product I found (after tons of research) that improved my skin drastically. I have now been using this product for nearly a year and I enjoy smoother, clearer skin.

Effective but drying
About Me Skin Care Professional
I use the product once or twice a day. I do believe it's helping keep breakouts under control. I have good skin but now I'm in my upper 20s and get hormonal breakouts or random blemishes. My skin is dry combination and this cleanser really dries me out and sometimes stings but I'm going to keep trying to see if it keeps breakouts away. My friend with oily skin loves this cleanser but if you are not oily it may dry you out. Love this company.
If you breakout, this is a must have!
from Ogden, UT
Another Paula's product I never want to live without. I use to breakout a lot, not so much now that this is my new best friend. It never dries out my skin and never makes it feel tight. I have one by my sink and one in the shower.
Made skin burn
This cleanser made my sensitive skin very irritated. I woke up to a red, tight face. I'm looking for a good cleanser for sensitive, acne prone skin - but this isn't the one for me unfortunately.

Gave me a severe allergic reaction
from New Brunswick, NJ
This gave me a HORRIBLE allergic reaction! It made my skin so red and dry that it stung 24/7 unless I put vaseline on it. I already have very dry skin, and although this did keep my acne under control it still gave me that awful reaction. My skin has never reacted this badly to any product. Maybe it's just my skin being way too sensitive, but please be wary of this cleanser is you have sensitive skin!
Great and excellent price!!
from Phoenix, Arizona
Great cleanser. I've tried Clinique and Estee Lauder and feel they have much alcohol. Did not over dry my skin and left it feeling super clean. I did see a bit of difference in regards to pores. Would definitely recommend, worth a try!

Great cleanser for combination skin, bad packaging
About Me Beauty Expert
I've used Paulas Choice for 5+ years now, and this is my favourite cleanser for my oily combination skin with blackheads/acne. It gently dissolves oil, without leaving the skin feeling dry or tight. My main problem with this product is the packaging. It leaks very easily, so don't bring this cleanser with you on a trip, especially not on an airplane! the cap also breaks off easily, so don't try to "tighten" it. Wish PC could fix their packaging, I love the products except for this one thing!
Changed my skin
from Boyne City, MI
For the last probably 2-3 years my skin took a turn for the worst I didn't know why, but I would have break out after break out after break out. I started to try and fight the breakouts by using anything and everything that said it was for "acne prone skin", but what I found was many of these products either made minimal impact or made the problem worse. I stumbled upon Paula's choice when I saw the price of this product I thought "why the heck not?" and it was the best choice I made. Within just a few days I saw noticable improvements and within in a month new breakouts were few and far between. I now get compliments on my skin and I immediately give credit to Paula's choice. This product is also great for sensitive skin as it doesn't have a smell or color, it rinses off easily without leaving a residue, and doesn't dry out the skin like many other acne cleansers I've tried. I give this two big thumbs up!
