Ratings & Reviews
Made my skin itchy and inflamed.
I use the trial kit in order. The cleanser seems to clean my face well.
However, the last step (clearing treatment) irritates my skin very badly. I noticed that the spots that I have applied the lotion on are inflamed also.
This product is not for me.
FINALLY SOMETHING WORKED!
I am 49 years old and have had moderate to severe cystic acne & blackheads since age 15, took Accutane twice, antibiotics, all the popular OTC & TV products. This is the FIRST product that FINALLY worked for me. I am pretty intolerant of Benzoyl Peroxide so only use that once in awhile, the MAGIC BULLET for me was the 2% Salicylic Acid Exfoliating solution. I have been mostly clear over 6 months now, it is amazing. I am a bit dry now, so talking to customer service on how to remedy that! Try it
Not for me
I was excited to try this kit for my cystic hormonal acne having tried everything with no luck. Unfortunately it burns my face and is very drying so I reduced the frequency to nights. It dried out the acne i had but then I broke out some more and nothing's working now. So my hunt for a solution is back on.
Excellent for pores
I started using this product to try and reduce my pore size and was pleasantly surprised as how effectively it works. The three step program is easy to do an leaves my skin feeling refreshed and not overly dry - which is a commoner problem for someone with skin as sensitive as mine. My only complaint would be that I was hoping it would have more of an effect on my blackheads, but aside from that it is definitely a product worth using.
Red and itchy skin
Today is the third day that my skin has been red, stinging and itchy. I start using it last week and for the first few days, my skin felt tight and drier than usual. I kept using it without other product. But on Sunday, I put my usual moisturizer on because I couldn't stand the dryness and it started getting worse. I woke up on Monday with red, itchy, burning skin. Red coarse bumps spread on my cheeks, chin and forehead. It has been bothering me and I don't know what to do with it.Please help.
AMAZED and HAPPY!!!
I have tried EVERYTHING for my skin problems, which have been severe for the past year! Nothing but an expensive prescription from the dermatologist helped. Since I was unable to continue the prescription due to the costs, I had to stick to over the counter products which in turn just irritated my skin. I started to get down on my luck until I found this product. I was skeptical at first yet desperate to try something new that might actually work. In just TWO days...MAJOR difference!!! :)
THIS STUFF WORKS
Basically I got this for my mother who is 52 years old with very oily skin and cystic acne especially around her chin and bottom lip area. It was fustrating to see that even the higher brands (clinique and lancome) weren't helping. We didn't want to go to the doctors either. This stuff worked wonders and cleared up my mother's acne and helped decrease any flare ups she tends to have. The only complaint is a tight dry feeling, so I have ordered the full size in normal now for her to use.
The use this with Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Toner (which I love, makes my skin feel great and smooth) and for the past week, not only has it reduce my cystic pimples' inflammation (it no longer hurts to touch my face! :D) but the junk clogging my pores is finally being pushed out instead of just staying as it is or retreating back into my pore a little for me to worry about some other day. I'm so happy to finally see an improvement instead of just a temporary relief!
I've tried pretty much everything out there for my adult acne and nothing had worked as well as this system. I bought the 2 week trial so that I didn't have to commit to the full investment just in case it didn't work, and I've already purchased the full size product. Within a few days I noticed a difference with my problem areas (around my mouth and chin) and the overall condition of my skin. I still have a few blemishes pop up, but they seem to heal much quicker.
Needs better sealing
Love my Paula products- I have completely switched over but was very disappointed in the 2 week trial kits for both Clear and Extra Strength Clear. Thought they would be perfect for travel but once opened they continued to completely leak out while traveling. I made sure they tops were sealed tight but they still leaked. The only one that didn't was the product in the tube. I would like to re-order but will wait in hopes they can fix the problem.
