These products changed my life
After struggling with sensitive skin, adult acne and rosacea for years, a dermatologist prescribed a $300 face cream that improved (but did not completely heal) my red and bumpy skin. I had to use the prescription cream religiously and even then I didn't love the way my skin looked. Months later, I was shown an Instagram ad for this CLEAR skin care line and remembered a friend raving about Paula's Choice products. I asked her if she still stands behind them and she said she's never had a product from Paula's Choice that she did not love and that did not have a positive effect on her skin. I ordered the set and have been using it for almost 6 months, the bottles last so long! It's a great value for what you're getting the results I've seen speak for themselves. My skin is clearer, healthier more even toned and the acne and redness is gone. I am so thankful to have found this product and to be able to avoid the prescription cream altogether!
My only "complaint" (and it's barely anything) is that I find the toner runs out much faster than the cleanser or the cream, so it throws off my ordering schedule a bit. Not a big deal, just maybe something they can work on if others have experienced the same thing.
MIRACLE for my cystic acne!
I AM IN LOVE with PC clear! I had been using R&F for years with no help for my cystic acne. It actually seemed to get worse using those products. I did a little research, and decided to give PC a chance! What can I say, I am in love. Within days, my acne cleared! Like not a single breakout for WEEKS! Before I started these products, I had at least 10+ painful cystic acne bumps at any given time. Within a few days, I only had the red marks from previous acne. I decided to add in the resist hydrator which ended up making my skin break out again. (but that's a review for another day). So tonight I'll be going back to just the clear regimen. Hopefully that will clear it all up!
Seriously the best product!
To start, I usually don't write reviews on products but I felt like I had to write a review to help other people know how great this product is. I've tried everything, from dermatologist's recommendation like Differin and Epiduo, which both burned my skin and made it flakey and painful. However, the CLEAR system helped my skin to clear up, made it feel so smooth, and did not irritate it or make it flakey. I tried the travel size first and ended up getting the full size bottles. This has been a miracle for me! Thank you Paula's Choice for making a great product that actually works!!!
I have finally been able to clear my skin!!!!
I can't say I have "acne" or even breakouts. I have "blemishes" on my skin that itch and crack open and bleed. My skin has (had) some blackheads/white heads on my nose and some flaking skin. I have tried everything & had not been able to stop those itching, bleeding marks!!!! I bought this for my son & tried using it for myself. I used Step 1 &2 each morning, Step1,2 & 3 at night. Since I have dry skin, I follow with "Skin Recovery Antioxidant Serum" and "Skin Recovery Replenishing Moisturizer" morning and night. 1X per week I use "Radiance Renewal Mask"...Skin is no longer flaky. Blackheads & whiteheads are not visible. Marks are almost gone!!! I just have a slight red spot where my last scab was. I will say that my first two weeks using this, it seemed like blemishes increased! I think it was just what was under my skin coming to the surface. It has been almost a month now and nothing like that is happening anymore. I don't have to wear any makeup. It is the first time my skin has been clear in about 3 years. Thank you Paula's Choice!!! I think I finally have found my daily skincare routine!!!!
Saved my life!
I had been suffering with acne from my teenage years and I had tried everything on the market (drugstore, high-end, you name it!). My sister recommended this product and within a week of using it, I started seeing the differences. Existing acne was slowly fading away and new ones weren't as frequent as they used to be. But what surprised me the most was that all the brown acne scars built up over the years were also slowly fading. I honestly cannot express what a relief it was to have found this kit!! 7 years later and I have zero complaints with this product - will continue to use it for the rest of my life!! Highly recommend this to anybody who has difficult acne :D
I can't believe my skin looks this good!
I am 23 years old and have been struggling with acne for about 10 years now. Remember when we thought our acne would just magically disappear when we turned 18? Haha funny. My acne has always been pretty moderate, sometimes mild but never sever. I've tried just about everything under sun for skin care. Clinique, La Roche Posay, Mario Badescu, Bare Minerals, etc. Nothing ever really worked for me, I even tried just going completely basic with no acne products, no luck. I had heard good things about Paula's Choice so I figured, why not? I've wasted so much money on things that didn't work, I'll try it. I've been using this for a month now and wow my skin hasn't looked this good since maybe elementary school. It did take a couple weeks for my skin to purge but that's normal. I do get a little breakout here and there but they clear up so quickly now, and I always use moisturizer morning and night afterwards. Love love love! Please never stop making this.
I am almost 40 never ever had problems with my skin but for the past year I've noticed black heads, dilated pores, and break outs on my cheeks chin and forehead I tried everything on the market that promised clearer skin and nothing worked. Even the dermatologist recommended super expensive neostrata did little to help... feeling frustrated With all the money I've spent and lack of results I decided to try Paula's choice so I bought just the little travel size kit... And wow with in 3 days I noticed the black heads were less and the dilated pores were way less visable. After a few more days the skin purging started and even my husband noticed a difference and he is the guy who didnt even notice when I left the house with black hair and came home blonde.
Honestly, this has helped my skin wayyyyyy so much. I used to have cystic acne all over my jawline and most of them would bleed randomly. Most of time, they were painful and I would have a lot of scars after. I still suffer from scars but it's healing little by little. The only thing I wish this set would do is to ACTUALLy fade scars and even skin tones. My skin is pretty much the same but it definitely helped clear my acne.

Better and cheaper than proactiv
I have battled acne for many years and have used Proactiv for a while to manage it. I came across Paula's Choice and thought I would try it since it was much cheaper than Proactiv. I was incredibly pleased when it cleared my skin even better than Proactiv ever did for a better price. It made my skin drier than I'm used to, but my moisturizer fixes that. Bottom line my skin is clearer than it's ever been and I'm spending less money than I was before. Love this product!
Love This Product!
I am 37 years old and have cystic acne and blackheads. I have dealt with this complexion for my teen and adult years. I have tried the majority of over the counter acne products including Proactive. Some work for the acne but not blackheads, some burned and dried out my skin, some did absolutely nothing. I have never found a product that exfoliates, treats acne and blackheads and does not dry out and burn my skin. I started using Paula's Choice 4 days ago. The four large acne spots on my cheek are healing, blackheads are already dramatically reduced. My skin is soft, not oily or dry. I have no burning and red spots are reduced as well. I am hoping that I have found a long term treatment for my acne. I am surprised and impressed with how well this product is working. Wish I had tried it sooner.
