What does it do?
This oil-free, ultra-light lotion helps fight existing acne breakouts and prevent future breakouts on the face or body. It controls excess oil, soothes skin, and visibly calms redness, while its hydrating properties help minimize dryness and peeling.

How to use

Apply after cleansing and exfoliating. If dryness or peeling occurs, reduce frequency of application to once per day/every other day. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.

For best results, do not use hydroquinone and benzoyl peroxide at the same time. A temporary dark staining of the skin may occur. If accidentally used together, wash the skin with soap and water to remove the staining.

This is a new holy grail for me! After being a loyal customer of Clinique for years, they discontinued their benzoyl peroxide clearing lotion, I was devestated. I tried going without it and as expected, my face went crazy. Thank goodness for this product! It cleared my Skin almost immediately and works better than the previous product I was using. I can't say enough good things about this!

THIS PRODUCT IS A MIRACLE!!

I am currently 21 years old with fairly oily skin and I have struggled with acne since I can remember. I took so many medications and topical prescriptions throughout my years and nothing ever seemed to work. I went through phases with my skin, but without a doubt never had clear skin. My freshman year of college my skin took a turn for the worse and my self confidence was for surely nonexistent at this point. I made the decision to go on Accutane as a last resort. I was on the medicine for 5 months.. and even then my skin was not progressing as it should have been (at this point I KNEW I had the most difficult skin). After getting off Accutane and getting put on new prescriptions to keep the acne away, I was clear for the beginning 6 months of 2018 and it was great!! Then of course, my acne slowly but surely started to come back after I stopped taking all medications. It was not the same acne that I had previously before Accutane, but it was still keeping me from living my life (as badly as that may sound). I was never one to switch up makeup or skin care because Accutane made my skin super sensitive and break out from pretty much anything. So I kept my skincare the same and would try 1 new product here or there. I introduced Cetaphil SA Cleanser into my life and BOY do I regret that. I thought I was purging from the new salicylic cleaner... but nope. I was breaking out from it for a MONTH. I found this product shortly after and I remember always hearing great things about this brand since I want to use more natural less harmful products. I bought the travel size of the 2.5 strength and I only used in as a spot treatment for about 5 days. After my pimples going away so quickly, I decided to make the jump and use it all over my face. The next day I saw a huge improvement in my skin and acne. I can tell I have a few pimples now from this treatment bringing new ones to the surface. But the existing pimples are gone in 1 or 2 days! Crazy!! beyond glad I found this!

Terrific product, with good surprises

I bought this to use on occasional breakouts, but have found it also calms down other irritated areas of skin -- and reduces old red marks in the process. A bonus, for sure, and one that I wasn't expecting. I have sensitive skin and never imagined I could safely use this type of product -- but I can! These products are amazing, all the way around. Thank you.

Acne Be Gone

I started incorporating this into my daily routine. I've never had bad breakouts, mainly just small breakouts in the forehead area and the occasional pimple on my cheek/chin. I've been applying the benzoyl​ to my forehead where I'm prone to mini breakouts, and it's been 100% manageable since. I never get those small breakouts anymore and my forehead is much smoother now.

I ordered this to use on occasional breakouts after reading one of Paula's books. I should point out that I have sensitive skin that is very reactive at times. However, I am truly amazed at how quickly this product calms and heals new blemishes very quickly -- and without irritation. As a side benefit, I noticed that it has ALSO helped older post-inflammatory red and pink spots! Once I accidentally discovered this, I started applying it to old scars and acne marks, just as a spot treatment, and was so thrilled to notice the spots starting to fade after just a few days of using it this way regularly. I am not sure if this is appropriate use of the product (outside of using on new blemishes, but what a bonus! I am new to this line, but better late than never!

Amazing results!

I can not recommend this product enough. Honestly I am amazed at the results. I had been using a very expensive name brand skin care product but it caused severe breakouts. Once I discovered Paula's Choice I started using this product right away. It hasn't been 2 weeks yet and my skin is not only clear but there are no red spots or remaining blemishes. I am shocked everytime I look in the mirror.

2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide

I was very skeptical about trying this, I have been to the dermatologist twice and paid so much for nothing. I came across this product and I can tell my face is already clear about 90 % and I just started using it . I don't usually write reviews, BUT THIS PRODUCT DESERVES A GREAT REVIEW. Will definitely recommend this to anyone who is breaking it out.

Holy Grail Skincare for me!

5

I love this product! It has almost completely cleared my acne. I used to get a one or two cystic spots a month and had moderate adult acne. I used to have a pimple cropping up every day or two, but now I probably only get one or two small pimples a month and no cysts. It also really helps fade a lot of scarring. When I first got it, I had put way too much on all over my face and it caused some dryness and itchiness, but it faded the red spots on my face overnight so well that eventually I tried to use it again and I'm so glad I did! I now use a much smaller amount (maybe 2 pea sized squeezes) and that covers my whole face. I mostly focus this in my t-zone and areas I tend to have breakouts in and I do not find it irritating at all. I also use every night. Could not be happier that I gave this product a try!

This is a miracle product!

I started using this product and saw a change in my skin within 2 days. My skin has always been pretty good, but I used to get breakouts on my forehead and was always annoyed about having bumpy skin on my forehead. Now, the bumpy skin is fixed. I still get breakouts, but I put this on at the first sign of something forming and it's gone within 24 hours. Even huge zits. I am amazed. I only need to put a tiny drop on, so the bottle will last me a long time. I don't normally write reviews for anything, but this is the product I've been looking for for years. I've never been 100% satisfied with anything else. I'm comfortable without makeup now and have been getting compliments on my skin.
