Ratings & Reviews
Suffererd persistent back acne for years
After 5 years of no solutions for my back acne this kit has completely cleared my back of acne and pist-inflammatory marks. Nevermind a review, Paula deserves a reward. I had this acne for YEARS! It's a blessing that I can finally wear sleeveless & backless tops now.
I bought the Travel size of this product so I could try it out. I have not had any breakouts since I started using it. I love the exfoliating solution - it removes dirt and dead skin without irritation - even when I've just washed my face, my cotton ball is brown after I use this solution! I've never seen this with other toners. I have used a lot of products for mild but persistent acne over the years (it came back when I was 25 after a round of strong antibiotics). Nothing has been able to clear up my skin, though I had some success with Proactiv. However, their business model is questionable at best. I am really glad I discovered this product and sent some to my niece to try! I also tried the Resist anti-aging line and I really love the Anti-redness Hydration creme, which is moisturizing and has faded the sun discolorations I have on my forehead and cheeks, improving my skin's overall evenness.
Exceeded my expectations
I was skeptical to try this since the normal strength kit did nothing for me, but I am amazed! I get really bad cystic acne on my chin and this is the only thing that's gotten rid of them and kept new ones from forming. I have blackheads and enlarged pores on my nose and there is a noticeable difference after 3 weeks of use. I find it's a little too drying for my normal skin, so I reduce it's use to only my problem areas, and I can say I'm very happy with the results and will be buying the full sized kit!
This system works great. Previously I used a prescription cream which was WAY more expensive, and left white streaks on my skin. I really like that the Benzyl Peroxide is a clear gel. It goes on smooth, and I can easily put on makeup over it. It definitely dries out my skin though, so I usually only use it at night, and/or on problem areas.
My breakouts have significantly diminished, and the few that I do get are far less severe. I feel like my red spots disappear faster, probably due to the salicylic acid exfoliant. I used to always use harsh scrubs to exfoliate, but I am sold on the gentle liquid in this kit.
This kit has the same basic concept as most acne systems, but I think the formulation and packaging is what really makes a difference. The products are easy to use with makeup, and aren't in those cute pots (which spoil quickly). Other people have mentioned spills from the packaging, but I haven't had any issues. I would definitely recommend trying this system. It lasted me much longer than 2 weeks, and I ended up buying the full size bottles.
I'm writing this review for all of those who feel like they have tried everything! Dermatologist visits, over the counter products, pills, no diary, no sugar, researched, recommended, googled, products and have had zero luck on clearing up your skin. Trust me, I get it. I've tried it all with a mixed bag of results.
I have cystic acne around my jaw and chin, enlarged pores, red discoloration from acne, blackheads/whiteheads...the works. I have struggled with finding something that has worked for YEARS. I took a chance on this set bc of the price point (honestly).
Seriously, nothing has worked as good as this in all the years I've attempted to get clear skin. I've been using it for two weeks and my skin has never been this consistently clear. Yes, I still have a few blemishes and still have red discoloration BUT in two weeks my skin has gone from very inflamed to very under control. That's seriously no time at all to see something work in such a drastic way.
The only set back is that my skin is very dry. I'll take it for the process of clear skin. Seriously, if your hesitating on trying this take the chance and purchase this trial set. It will absolutely help in the process of learning how get clear skin. Clear skin is totally possible. Don't give up!
I originally ordered this product in the regular strength version and I did not see the results I wanted. I decided to try this and I am so glad! My black heads are almost gone and the tiny pimples that used to live on my forehead are no more!! I also am using PC anti-aging foundation and moisturizer. I get so many complements on how clear my skin is! I do not exfoliate daily because it can be a bit drying, however every other day is perfect. I use the treatment before my period to stop hormonal break outs. I am so glad I found PC! A game changer!!
More Than Happy
So, I know this has been written so many times because I went through all the reviews before purchasing but, I have been struggling with finding a cure for my acne for years and I always remain cautiously optimistic. I don't know why I decided to buy this one but I'm glad I did. I'm 25 and Ive even tried so many products including Proactive. My skin became so irritated with Proactive that new blemishes began to pop up along with the old. I've been using PC for only 2 weeks and almost everything is gone. I could cry I am so grateful. I usually had about 15 large blemishes along with a lot of little bumps but after the first 3 days, the smaller bumps were completely gone. I never paid much attention to them because I could cover them easily with makeup but I was so wrong. My skin began to look so beautiful and healthy without them there. After 2 weeks, everything else is mostly gone. The pores along my nose are also much smaller.
I will say: My skin is very dry. After using PC the first couple times I started to get very dry and flakey. However, it was working so I really didn't want stop. My advice is to only use at night and I also stopped using the benzoyl peroxide, which is the last step. My skin was actually happier without it and continued to get rid of my acne. So if you have very dry skin, I would try not using the benzoyl peroxide and see where that takes you.
Overall I couldn't be happier and so glad I finally found something that works.
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
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!
Great for travel!
I'm a HUGE fan of the Clear Extra line and this is perfect for travel!
