Anyone Use Paula's Choice Clear?

10 posts in this topic

I am a 32 year old female with primarily hormonal acne (chin area, mostly around "that time of the month"). It has become pretty severe. Just wondering if anyone has had success with Paula's Choice Clear? Or any of her other lines? I've tried taking a more gentle approach to acne/skincare, and I've tried her Hydralight line, which is nice, but doesn't seem to be doing much...

Thanks!!!

Hi, I started the Clear line two months ago after a really bad breakout, it took awhile to see results but it really cleared my face, in my opinion the 2% BHA is really effective in getting my pores unclogged and clearing the breakouts mostly in my chin and neck area.

The skin balancing line is what I used successfully for years. I now use her Earth Sourced system. However, know that chin acne is usually hormonal. Leafy greens and cruciferous vegetables help balance hormones plus provide essential skin nutrients. Green smoothies are an easy way to get them in your diet each day--they are what cleared my skin over 7 years ago.

Green smoothies/blended greens keep me clear! Click here

* Diet: Whole foods, mostly plant-based diet - lots of green vegetables, beans/legumes, nuts/seeds, fruit and occasional whole grains. If you suffer with acne, please see the diet tip section here.

* Skin-care Regimen: I recommend Paula's Choice (by Paula Begoun). For basic and effective, well-researched skin-care tips, click here.

* Supplements: Acidophilus, a safe, well-researched, food-based multi-vitamin, vitamin D3, and a pure DHA supplement.

* Lifestyle: Plenty of sleep, sweat-inducing exercise, sunshine, time each day to relax and de-stress, focusing on love, compassion and thankfulness, and keeping a clean, organized environment and life, helps to more easily maintain a healthy, happy life.

* Faith: If you're open to religion, having faith greatly helps with well-being and health. My faith is in Jesus Christ. I had to do much research regarding this decision, but it was worth it! It gives my life meaning, peace, and especially joy. If you have questions, PM me!

Hey, I've been using the Paula's Choice "Clear" Line-- I've been keeping a semi-regularly updated report on it here on acne.org.

I really REALLY like their products (even though they're kind of expensive). The Clear line has improved my facial redness and acne a lot. I get hormonal acne...especially around my period, and I haven't had a crazy, scary breakout since using these products.


^^ That's my "log" of using Paula's Choice :) Good luck!

I use the Clear line in combination with some of the Skin Balancing products and I love it. It's totally changed my skin in a matter of a few months.

The only thing that you should be wary of is the bp. I noticed that using it in conjunction with the BHA can make my skin super dry and itchy. So be careful! I actually use the CLEAR cleanser and BHA, but have stopped using the bp completely. I've also added Paula's Choice AHA for the nighttime. Use lots of moisturizer!!

well i've been using the clear line for a little over a month now and it's been working really well! i've also been using the 2% bha gel and my skin is pretty nice. i didn't actually have that much acne when i started, but just a few stubborn spots and alot of dark marks left over from acne. right now i have 1 pimple that is almost gone and another small pimple that is also on it's way out. other than that i still have the dark marks left over, but they have faded quite a bit, i think because of the toner and the bha gel.
