This bundle saved my skin
I cannot day enough about this skincare bundle. It has saved my skin and my self esteem. When I went off of birth control my skin blew up with severe acne. I spent a ton of money on different skincare products. Paula's Choice was my last chance. Best decision ever!
II bought this for my adult daughter. She had tried everything! Within a week her skin looks amazing! She said it burnt at first and dried out her skin, she cut back to once a day and it's not as dry and she is really happy! Thank you Paula!
Finally! I have skin again!
For 3+ years we have had issues with my skin - clogged pores, unpredictable breakouts etc. After trying everything under the sy and spending 1000's of dollars I have finally found a skincare system that works for me! My skin is the smoothest it has been since I was a child! I've only been using this for 4 days but have already noticed such a big difference. Breakouts are under control. I know by the end of the bottles my skin would have completely transformed. Thank you so much Paula's Choice. I'll be back for more!
only thing that worked
I love this product. I was struggling with acne for two years and this is the only thing that worked. it's a miracle worker!!!
Writing this review on behalf of my husband. He was diagnosed with cystic acne at a young age, has done 2 rounds of acutane and had countless pills, creams and washes prescribed from dermatologists. He has also had laser treatments done on the hair on his face to prevent the folliculitis. He still suffered from moderate acne even after all the treatments prescribed in addition to some mild rosacea and very sensitive skin which has been really frustrating. When the doctor suggested a 3rd round of acutane, I managed to convince him to try this line first because I've had great results with my products from Paula's choice. This regimen has almost completely cleared his face. We're both so thankful and amazed that this has worked so well. Even though its the extra strength formula he has found it nonirritating and mild. He still gets a very occasional break out especially if he accidentally skips a night of treatment here and there. But overall this line has made such a dramatic improvement in his skin! Thank you!

Awesome product with great value!
For the past few years I've been dealing with cystic acne on my jaw and recently on one side of my cheek. It's been so frustrating. I've been to the dermatologist back and forth, some things helped for a small period of time and some not at all. Finally, I decided to order this kit in hopes it would help even slightly before I got married in two and a half months. Thank goodness it did! I was nervous at first since my skin never reacted well to BHA, but this combo is perfect for cystic acne. Now, don't get me wrong. You won't see it all clear up overnight. It took me a steady routine of about 6 weeks to see consistant clear skin. But it was definitely worth the work. Plus considering what I was spending in skin care doesn't even compare. Seriously! Try this and give you skin time to fully work with the products. You won't regret it.
The only thing that worked
This is the only acne product that works for me. For reference, I have dry skin and suffered breakouts from my teens well into my twenties, beyond what my peers were experiencing. I've been to a couple of dermatologists, went on multiple rounds of antibiotics and used different Rxs (including the now OTC Differin) but nothing consistently worked.
My caveat to people: you MUST stick with it, even if your acne seems worse, or if you have bad peeling/redness. Since my skin is dry, I suffered a lot of peeling and irritation, but I kept my application to nighttime and made care not to apply too much, until my skin became used to it. Yes, it's embarrassing, yes it's impossible to cover up, but if you stick with it, you should see a change within two months. I kept at it and by that point I was seeing far less breakouts and gradually less peeling/redness/irritation. My acne was often a mixture of cystic acne and whiteheads, grouped into clusters on my cheeks/lip/chin area (not as much on the T-zone). These products helped immensely. I still get occasional breakouts, and I definitely still have scarring (working on that!) but my skin is much improved since I first started a year ago. It's also important to figure out if your acne is primarily bacterial or hormonal, as that makes a difference as well.
Also, I noticed a reviewer just before me say the cleanser has triclosan. According to the ingredients (posted on this very site), the cleanser does NOT have triclosan in it.
Again, start small (don't use too much, use only at night at first) and *keep at it*. Routine is key! And don't forget SPF and moisturizer during the day.
Nothing compares to this product
In my early 20s I began to experience painful cystic acne all along my jaw line and a mess of other blemishes on the rest of my face. I tried everything I could to fix it but nothing worked. Within a month of using this kit almost all my acne was gone and I wasn't afraid to show my face in public anymore. I stopped using the product because of its price and tried to find other less expensive alternatives. Well that search lasted several years while my breakouts returned with a vengeance. I just returned to Paula's choice and once again find that even less than a months worth of this product has cleared my skin in a way no other product could. This kit is worth every penny. It truly works without over drying my skin or irritation. I get compliments regularly on my skin now.
Your fight with acne is over
I had been struggling with acne since I was a teenager (now mid-twenties). From dermatologist prescriptions to trying proactiv, nothing really worked. I have been using these products for a few months and I can not remember the last time I have had skin this consistently clear. Along with these products I use the RESIST Weightless Toner. My oily skin is finally under control, I can not recommend these products more. Thank you Paula's Choice.
Great Results for My Teenager
I started my teenage son on the regular strength CLEAR kit a few months ago. It was helping his acne some, but he still had a lot of painful looking pimples. I bought the Extra Strength Clear kit for him two weeks ago and between using that and emphasizing to him that he needs to be religious about using it twice a day, his skin is looking so much better. He's still getting some pimples, but they go away quickly. I wish this product had been available when I was a teenager.
