Why is it different?
CLEAR Pore Normalizing Cleanser isn’t like other acne cleansers; it is completely non-irritating and won’t cause dryness or flaking. This cleansing gel actually has a silky feel that works quickly to remove excess oil and debris that can clog pores and lead to breakouts.
Collapse
What does it do?
Gently and quickly removes excess oil and surface debris that contribute to acne. Rinses without a residue, leaving skin refreshed, comfortably clean, and ready to receive maximum benefits from the CLEAR products to follow.
Collapse
How to use

Wet face and apply a small amount of cleanser to your face and eye area with vigorous, yet gentle, circular motions. Rinse well. To remove heavy makeup, repeat or use with a clean, wet washcloth.

Holy grail

5

I just love it. My 30 year old acne prone oily skin has completely settled from using this and all of Paula's products, including the clear 2% salycilic. In love! Like another user I was a cetaphil girl but will never stop using this now.

Fantastic!

I love this stuff! Made a huge difference with my acne and suprisingly didn't irritate my sensitive skin. I use it twice a day, and only need a little drop for my whole face.

Finally clear after 10 years of adult acne!

I used all the drug store acne products and the expensive stuff from the doctor. Th only thing that worked was the antibiotics but you can't stay on those. I am quick to try things, but also quick to move on if I don't think it works. I started with the kit and then now just maintain on the cleanser, have been acne free for two years and if I get one its very small, and goes away quick, nothing like the nasty cyst types from before that were so painful.

Seriously... the best cleanser for my oily skin!

I got this as a travel size, to see if I liked it... and I can honestly say that I will never buy anything else again. I have used Cetaphil Daily Cleanser for YEARS and this just blew it out of the water! My face was SO clean and NOT dry. When I used the Cetaphil, I would get residual make up on my cotton ball with Paula's toner, but there was NOTHING after I used this cleanser. Just TRY it!

Love this!

I use this facewash along with the other CLEAR products and love them all. Since using these products, I have definitely noticed a change in my skin- less cystic acne and noticeably reduced clogged pores! I also use the BHA 2% Skin Brightening Liquid and the CLEAR SPF 30+ moisturizer. I love them all.

Repeat purchase for two+ years

I've used this cleanser for over two years and can't be without it. It is my HG product. My skin is always clean, fresh and makeup free after using it. I do notice a slight dryness/tightness after cleansing if I don't use a moisturiser so I find it works best for me when followed with rosehip oil and a hydrating moisturiser. I love this product and will continue to purchase again and again!

My first order from PC. Clean well without drying my skin. I have super sensitive skin, it's very gentle. I also got the CLEAR Regular Strength Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution With 2% Salicylic Acid. I can tell my pores are getting a little smaller after 1 week. Love it!! I just placed my second order to try other good PC products that would work great on my skin.

Excellent Cleanser for Ance Prone Skin

I have hormonal, cystic acne. I love this cleanser because it so gentle with sensitive skin but also removes all the excess oil, makeup, and dirt from my skin.

Gentle enough for dry skin

5

My dry skin is finicky with cleansers. It lets me know when it finds a cleanser too drying (hello, flaky, scaly skin). Which is why foaming cleansers are a no-no. But I am paranoid about making sure my skin is clean because I'm prone to blackheads and I have large pores so I don't want it so gentle that it renders it ineffective. I have used one bottle already, everyday, morning and night, and it has never dried out my dry skin plus it's a good cleanser! Win-win! I have bought two more bottles. My only complaint is I wish it came with a pump! I often squeeze too much. The squeeze mechanism is annoying especially toward the end.

I love this! I just wish it came in a bigger format. The bottle is really small.
