Additional Information

Why is it different?
CLEAR Extra Strength Daily Skin-Clearing Treatment with 5% Benzoyl Peroxide works on contact to disrupt the causes of acne. Soothing plant extracts calm skin to help skin look calm and soothed. It contains no harsh or skin-aggravating ingredients that can make acne worse. This twice-daily acne solution has a super-light lotion texture that sets to an invisible matte finish, and can even be worn under makeup.

What does it do?
This oil-free, medicated, ultra-light lotion with 5% benzoyl peroxide 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 minimise dryness and flaking. It’s even appropriate for skin prone to cystic acne.
Collapse
How to use
Apply to affected areas after cleansing and exfoliating. Because excessive drying may occur, start with 1 application and gradually increase to 2 or 3 times daily if needed. 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 15 or greater.

    Left skin feeling extremely sensitive, dry and flakey.

    Comments about Clear Extra Strength Acne Treatment with 5% Benzoyl Peroxide - 67 ml:

    I have been suffering from acne since last 5 months. I tried bunch of different products, some broke out my skin, some gave temporary results.
    Eventually, I came across this product, and what can I say, I have no words to praise this product. I picked this product straight away, not even tried 2.5%. I started using it twice a day, and it cleared my skin with in a week, In fact, I started seeing results with in 2 days. It cleared my dark/red spots. Initially, it dried out my skin, but after some time my skin gets used to it. I am also suffering from Guttate Psoriasis, and this product cleared that too. Now, I have been addicted to this product and will be using this product for a longer period of time.
    I would like to thank Paula for this amazing product.

          Comments about Clear Extra Strength Acne Treatment with 5% Benzoyl Peroxide - 67 ml:

          I have been getting severe cystic acne everyday for the past few months. I was using benzoyl peroxide of a different brand on them but when one goes away another one pops up. Started getting really frustrated and wondering when I would go back to not having pimples on my face.

          Last resort I ordered this and within the first few days the bumpy painful ones dried out and reduced in size significantly.

          I have been using this religiously for a week now and I haven't had any new pimples and everything is starting to heal up!

          Can't say enough good things. When I get pimples, they are stubborn! The redness reduction is almost immediate. With diligent application, my pimples are gone in 2 days.

          White Streaks

          Comments about Clear Extra Strength Acne Treatment with 5% Benzoyl Peroxide - 67 ml:

          I don't know how I am going to use this because it leaves big white streaks all over my face even after rubbing it in and I can't get rid of the white streaks (unless I wash my face,which would defeat the purpose.) Not sure what to do. I was hoping it would soak in but it just kind of sits there on the surface of my skin. On the plus side, it's got the sort of stinging feeling I like. It makes me feel clean after using the Clear cleanser and toner. Those products don't make me feel clean.

          It is effective. I only use it once a day in the morning and last 2-3 months. Does what it claims.

          Amazing! (3 Months Used)

          Comments about Clear Extra Strength Acne Treatment with 5% Benzoyl Peroxide - 67 ml:

          This stuff is really amazing! Honestly, I've been taking isotretinoin so I don't know if this was the cause of acne clear up (and my face cleared up about 70%), but it feels so nice when you put it on and next morning when I wake up. It calms and smooths the skin that I'd rather use this even after my acne is completely gone. However please note that this is extra strength so I advise you to try a sample of 2.5%. I had a burning sensation for the first 2 days (maybe bc I have partially dry skin)
