Brand Overview

This anti-acne treatment's major benefit comes from 5% benzoyl peroxide, which effectively eliminates acne-causing agents. Unlike many other benzoyl peroxide treatments, this one's fragrance-free formula takes things a step further by also including ingredients that help soothe redness. Plus, this does not include common irritants like menthol, alcohol, or peppermint, which only make matters worse!

CLEAR Extra Strength Daily Skin Clearing Treatment has a lightweight, lotion-like texture, leaves an invisible matte finish, and wears under makeup without a hitch.

This works great for all skin types struggling with stubborn, persistent acne, teens and adults alike, and regular use can significantly improve your acne-prone skin. Because of the lack of irritants mentioned earlier, it's even gentle enough for those with skin prone to cystic acne.

Tip: Some may experience dryness when they first start using a benzoyl peroxide product; if you do, then reduce the frequency of application as needed.

Pros:
  • Benzoyl peroxide kills acne-causing bacteria and helps avoid future breakouts.
  • Fragrance-free formula with soothing ingredients.
  • Lightweight, lotion-like texture leaves an invisible matte finish.
  • Suitable for all skin types struggling with stubborn acne.
Cons:
  • Some may experience dryness on initial use or if applied too often.
Jar Packaging: No
Tested on animals: No

Paula's Choice Skincare At-A-Glance

 

Paula's Choice Skincare was established in 1995 when best-selling beauty author and consumer advocate Paula Begoun (known as The Cosmetics Cop) decided to develop her own products.

As a natural evolution of Paula's personal mission to help consumers find the best products for their skin, the line has grown into an extensive range of skincare and makeup products that are formulated to meet the needs of almost every skin type and skin concern imaginable, from acne to wrinkles.

Paulas Choice Skincare relies on published research where available to discover the best ingredients for skin. Stable packaging is another feature of the brand, using innovative, opaque, and air-tight or air-restrictive components that keep antioxidants and other light- and air-sensitive ingredients from breaking down. The line is also 100% fragrance-free.

Disclosure: Paula Begoun is the creator of Beautypedia and founder of Paula's Choice Skincare products. Reviewing thousands of skincare and makeup products over the past 30 years, both on this site and in her best-selling books, Paula's mission has always been to help consumers find the best products possible for their skin. The Beautypedia Team proudly and unequivocally maintains this commitment. In addition, The Beautypedia Team reviews all products using the same rating standards and criteria, whether it is a Paula's Choice product or another brand.

Why are Paula's Choice Skincare products rated highly? The Paula's Choice Skincare Team would not launch a product unless it was worthy of a high rating from The Beautypedia Team. Paula and The Beautypedia Team were researching and reviewing products long before Paula's Choice Skincare ever existed and consumers were constantly requesting a skincare brand that met all of Beautypedias criteria. As a result, The Paula's Choice Skincare Team was created and uses the same research and criteria to formulate Paula's Choice products as The Beautypedia Team uses to review products.
