About Me Minimalist
Comments about CLEAR Regular Strength Acne Kit - Complete Kit:
I ordered the trial kit and after two weeks ordered the larger set. I wasn't expecting much, I just knew I had to do something about my constant breakouts. These products not only keep pimples at bay, but are slowly but surly making the bumps underneath my skin vanish as well.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Conscious
I stopped using the birth control pill and my skin went a little crazy. I just had little bumps under my skin all over my forehead, several little teeny tiny white heads on my cheeks and sebaceous filaments all over my nose and chin. My typical PC regimen just wasn't working for me so I thought I would try this. IT WORKS! I have been using the 2%BHA liquid and the Resist BHA for years but BHA formula for the Clear line works so much better for me. I thought it would be quite drying and I have super sensitive skin but it was the opposite. It was so much more gentle than the other BHA formulations I have tried. It actually soothed my skin. And the texture of the the Clear BHA is like water... no slippery feeling, no waiting for it to "dry" before I apply my other products. It's fantastic. I also bought the Resist Weightless Toner... that stuff is amazing! And I use the Resist Ultra light antioxidant serum as my moisturizer as night. My skin is almost back to normal.Oh and I still use the skin balancing cleanser (LOVE IT) to clear my makeup and then use the CLEAR cleanser to make sure I get it all off. I don't think I could use just the CLEAR cleanser to get all of my makeup off. Highly recommend.
Not good for me
from Rochester, NY
I really wanted to say something amazing about this product because of the reviews on Paula's Choice . My skin did not react the same way the reviewer's skin did. This product was used daily - morning & night. I first started by using the combination as instructed by steps , then had to skip a step to test a theory about the exfoliant. Used Step 1 & 3 for a short duration and noticed I had to use all the steps twice a day in order for the pores to minimize. My skin felt tight and because this package didn't come with a moisturizer, I had to use some lotion to make do (which probably clogged my pores). To follow the skin tightness, I had skin irritation after each use that would sting for a few moments... then go away shortly after left with red blotchy spots on my face. This happened even when using step 1, 2, 3 & step 1& 3. I am still figuring out my skin and would love to hear what everyone else thinks about my skin situation. I am new to Paula's Products and finding a "cure" for my acne outside of the Dermatologist office. Even if there is no cure, I would like to maintain it as much as possible. Would you think my face is naturally dry or a combination of dry & oily. Perhaps even too sensitive for products. I do not wish to take pills each day for the acne and hope I can find a good product off of PC. :/

Finally have my adult acne under control!
By Artsy Liz
from Orange County, California
I have never written a review for anything, but I had to for this. I hope it this product can help more people :) I've tried everything to clear my adult acne that suddenly appeared around age 28. I just had my 30th birthday and after using Paula's choice for about three months consistently my skin is the best it has been in years. It makes my skin feel fresh and improves the overall appearance of my face. I no longer need coverup and feel beautiful with a clean face :) I mostly struggled with bumps under the skin and closed comedones that were stubborn to get rid of even with exfoliating. I no longer have them. I tried the extra strength kit but it was too strong for my skin. I have sensitive skin that reacts easily to new products but the regular strength kit was perfect. The only downside I've found is that the packaging doesn't hold up well when travelling. I'm always on a plane so found its best to purchase a trial kit to travel with so my regular size bottles don't leak.
Made more acne breakouts
from Los Angeles
I have been using this product for a month and it only cause me too break out and spread my acne. I have moderate and I am no left it fix what happened it my skin. It was very disappointing. I love Paula's choice and the products they have. I don't think I will finish this profuct and do not recommend.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

THE BEST EVER!!!
About Me Beauty Expert
This is THE best acne product on the market for the price. My kids won't go without it. It has helped me off and on with my own combo skin but is the gold standard for my teens. I have a friend who is on it and got it for my pastors kids. I hate seeing anyone suffer from acne needlessly. I sure wish this was around when I was a teen! But I'm glad my kids have it. They refuse to use anything else and get mad when we run out. You will NOT be disappointed. I highly recommend starting with the Regular Strength and see if that is all you need. Then graduate to extra strength if you need something stronger.
Love These Products
from Canada, BC
I absolutely love these products, along with anything from Paula's Choice. I have been using it for three years now, and still love it just as much. I get compliments on my skin every single day and people asking me what I use. I work at a very well known beauty retailer store that sells cosmetics and skin care so I have tried many different products (that are about three times the price as Paula's Choice) but I haven't found anything else I like as much or that works as well.
Service and delivery comments:
They have very fast delivery, however I am in Canada and I really wish there wasn't an extra charge for sending to Canada, as the exchange from US to Canadian is already rather expensive.
Love it so far!

At first, it did dry my skin out, but it did not last very long. I've been using the kit for less than a month and have noticed a HUGE difference. I seriously tried every acne product; Proactiv, Murad, Clinique, and every type of skin care at your local drugstore. I don't even want to know what I've spent searching for clear skin. Paulas Choice has made my pores noticeably smaller, my acne is clearing up, and my skin has a soft, smooth glow. I just ordered the dark spot corrector and cannot wait to see the results for that!

The only thing that has worked for me!
I use this routine every morning and night. It is gentle on my sensitive skin and has improved the texture and overall appearance of my skin. I've dealt with acne since I was 13 years old. I am on birth control pills to help with my hormonal acne. Even though I'm on the pill, I would still get breakouts almost every day. Within the past year, my pores started getting larger and my skin was very dull and covered with pimples. I stumbled across Paula's Choice on a YouTube video for skincare and it's the greatest thing I've done for my skin! Her philosophy makes perfect sense and is backed by scientific research. I have learned so much about skincare and what works. Thanks to Paula's Choice, my skin is clearer than ever before and my skin's texture has greatly improved! It is worth every single penny! If you struggle with acne, you would do anything to have clear skin. Give this system a try-it's a miracle worker!
When I got my trial kit back in December, I took a "before" picture to see if it really made a difference. I was looking back through my pictures just now and jumped right to this site to leave a review. Wow!I noticed my skin getting clearer, but looking back at the pictures I can tell that these products made the world of a difference! The acne I had cleared, my skin tone became more even (no more red blotchy spots!), and I don't have dry patches anymore - although this could be due to the warmer weather. The Exfoliant and Blemish Treatment can get a bit greasy on my skin, so I only use them at night. I love the cleanser though, it is very lightweight and makes my skin feel great. The only problem I have is with the packaging - they do not travel well! I want to take them everywhere, but have had issues with them spilling. I would invest in some sturdier bottles if you plan on traveling, but overall I love these products!
