Ratings & Reviews
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.
It hasn't helped
I was really looking forward to this product helping and it hasn't. My acne has seen no improvement at all. I like going is not a harsh product on my skin and it helps with some redness, but the main problem still exist.
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.

Drys Out My Skin
I was really excited to buy this product when I saw all the good reviews. I used this product about a week and my skin was really dry and it burns. This make my skin started to peel because of the dryness. Also, I started to have new breakouts and this product didn't work for me at all. It did not change anything. I never write reviews, buy this product burns my skin really bad. I don't know why it it not working for me.
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.
I will never be without these products
These are by far the best products I have ever used to treat my adult acne. I tried many other products, from many different companies and this was the only thing that worked for me. I will never stop purchasing this trio. I use it as my night time routine, followed by a non comedogenic moisturizer and my skin has never looked better. If you are struggling with adult acne, I cannot recommend this product enough. Do your skin a favor.
Eau Claire, WI
I have tried so many products - recently R&F - and Paula's Choice has changed my life for a whole lot less $$. My skin looks amazing - my sister stares at my face and says she just can't get over the difference! I love it - so easy, such results! I just love it!!! (I'm not sure which moisturizer I should be using but at this point I'm just so happy with my skin right now.)
Cleared my Acne
Ive been using this kit religiously for 5 months and my acne is completely gone. All of my congestion and pimples are cleared and i could not be happier with the results. I get so many compliments on my skin because of this kit. I added a moisturizer for AM and PM and SPF 50 as well in the AM to protect my skin from the sun because the BHA and BP will make your skin very sun sensitive so be aware of this when purchasing. You have to be consistent with this and get through the purging stage when your skin gets worse before it gets better. For me this lasted about 3 weeks then cleared from there. I use the BHA and BP only at night time as it was too much for my skin during the day as well. Absolutely thrilled with my results it saved my self-esteem. Would recommend to everyone!
The BEST acne line
I've waited for a while to write a review on this product line, because I really wanted to see how it worked long term. After 10 months of very consistent use, I am happy to report that this line has absolutely changed my skin for the better. I have struggled with adult acne for years. After a particularly bad round of hormonal acne, I went in search of a new system to treat my angry, irritated, zit-covered face. I had used Proactiv for years with mostly positive results, but I wanted something that would exfoliate a bit more gently. After tons of research, I ended up trying PC. For the first week or so, my skin was quite dry as it adjusted to the products. I combated this with the Resist Hydrator which I use nightly (I will add here that even though I have a fair complexion, I have never struggled with skin sensitivity). I also alternated use of the Exfoliating Solution and the Skin Clearing Treatment, doing one in the morning and one at night until my skin fully adjusted. With regards to the acne, I began to see improvement in 2 months and full clearing within 6 months. So this is my advice to anyone reading this review - BE PATIENT. Your skin WILL go through a purge process. PC has got it right - the only way to stop acne is to use an exfoliant (in this case the salicylic acid) and something to kill bacteria (in this case the benzoyl peroxide). But it takes a while for all of the junk that has built up deep within your skin to come forth and be gone for good. You must be patient and you must be consistent. I hope you will love this product as much as I do!
