    Works well


    Since I'm a big review reader thought I would give my two cents on PCA skin products. I changed to BPO cleanser after the phaze1 wasn't kicking my hormonal breakouts. I've been very happy with this cleanser. My skin is looking better each day. I use clearskin for spot treatment but I wouldn't say it works as well as other natural acne treatments. All in all I am so happy with PCA and sticking with it!

    By far THE BEST!


    I've tried SO many cleansers since my teens (I'm 39 now) and haven't been happy with any of them. My skin is SO oily and I've dealt with hormonal breakouts for years. Normally, I avoid Benzoyl Peroxide because it makes my skin red & irritated. (Like another post said, if you're not careful, it will stain clothing, towels, and even pillowcases). But this is by far the best cleanser! I can use it on my face, neck, chest, and shoulders. (For those trying it, use it only once a day to see how your skin reacts.) After nearly a year, I've seen so much improvement in the appearance of my skin. My family and friends are even complimenting me. I'm so happy with PCA products for acne! I won't ever use any other brand!

    works without overdrying


    My skin has been so oily since age 11 that I may as well have 'Exxon' stamped on my forehead. Its awful, and living in hot climates doesn't help. Further, I've always battled acne. Always - first just your standard blemishes and puberty-driven zits, and now that I'm in my late twenties, horribly painful horomonal breakouts around the jawline that last for weeks, swollen and painful under the skin. I'd been using a 3 step system from another company that seemed to be working on everything BUT those breakouts, and I was feeling pleased, except for when the painful ones popped up. In a fit of desperation (when a particularly bad one made it hurt just to speak), I called my Derm, who gave me a sample of this cleanser and the Clearskin moisturizer (plus samples of Ziana topical). It has been exactly one week, and there is a marked improvement in my skin. Even my never-notices-anything husband said tonight 'your skin looks great!' While I normally would cringe at spending so much on skincare, I think I'm sold. I'd rather have a clear, glowing complexion and the confidence that comes with it.

    a lifesaver.


    I have been struggling with acne out of the blue for about 2 months. I have tried every product treatment and gel possible to try clearing my skin and have found nothing has helped in the least. I was feeling desperate last weekend and purchased this cleanser. In just 3 days, my skin has cleared SUBSTANTIALLY. I never believe reviews that say that product helps so quickly but this really has helped so much and so quickly. I feel like I will be totally clear in a matter of weeks! I am so relieved to have tried this!

    It really works!!


    I have been battling acne for many years, and tried everything, including Proactiv and Obagi. It wasn't until we went to a local spa where i got weekly facial treatments, and home treatments with PCA products did my skin clear up. I use the BPO morning and night, and my skin is the clearest it has been in a long time. I have less breakouts which occur sparingly. It leaves my skin clean and refreshed, with no excess fragrance. It also lasts a long time, a little goes a long way. Definitely my favorite product!!!

    Good For Acne and Redness


    Benzoyl peroxide Can Be Purchased In Store In Same COncentrations. I Bought This Product Because Unlike Store Products, This Producxt Contains Vitamins and Herbal Extracts to Soothe The Skin Which Helps Prevent Picking at Acne Or Ugly Redness. I Highly Recommend For T-Zone Acne and Those With Dry Skin.
