Paula’s Choice benzoyl peroxide review
This sản phẩm retails for 18$ (currently on sale for 14.40$) and contains 67ml/ 2.25 fl. Oz. Of product. It is meant lớn target mild lớn moderate acne breakouts.
According khổng lồ Paula’s Choice, it is “an effective acne treatment that works immediately to fight acne, prevent future breakouts, and reduce redness”. The brand also claims that it has hydrating agents, controls oil excess, và soothes the skin.
The key ingredient is benzoyl peroxide, which kills the bacteria from the root but it also contains soothing ingredients like allantoin to lớn calm the skin.

This hàng hóa has a pretty standard packaging. It actually matches the rest of the acne products from the CLEAR line. So, It comes in a bright xanh bottle with all of the information directly printed on the front in a neat & organized way. It’s travel-friendly và it looks very clean and medical.
I actually like how Paula’s choice differentiates the products from different lines with colors. Also, the packaging is fully recyclable (I recently made my research lớn make sure) and all of the information is printed on the bottle directly which is much more eco-friendly. Plus, it actually looks better in my opinion.
Like, the rest of the products from the line, this packaging is not the most aesthetic packaging on the market. Like I mentioned above, it leans more towards the medical side which is not a bad thing at all.
Concerning the formula, it performs really well. It’s very effective but unlike the previous acne products I tried, it’s more gentle. This product, specifically, contains hydrating agents so it does make a difference when I use it.
For my part, I use it just 2 times per week, only because my skin is sensitive và is still recovering from a bad allergy reaction. I feel like my skin barrier is weak hence I don’t want to lớn overdo it with the active ingredients. Moreover, I usually use the treatment when I am not exfoliating just khổng lồ avoid damaging my skin. The key is to be patient & to treat your skin gently (which I did not do in the past & I paid for it).
Benzoyl peroxides actually work by penetrating the hair follicles & killing the bacteria at its root. It’s an effective product và since it’s not an antibiotic, the bacteria won’t grow resistant lớn it. On another side, it’s an ingredient that takes time khổng lồ work. Personally, I started noticing a major difference after 6 weeks of using it. Furthermore, benzoyl peroxides have some bad side effects lượt thích drying of the skin however, it’s nothing a good moisturizer and hydrating routine can’t fix.
Conclusion – Paula’s Choice benzoyl peroxide nhận xét 9.5/10
To conclude, I really love this treatment, it’s gentle but at the same time it is effective. Since I started using it, I noticed my acne started disappearing and my skin looked more clear overall. If you missed my previous reviews from the same line of products, I pair this treatment with a Salicylic toner và cleanser. I think together, they contributed lớn skin looking clearer. These types of treatments however have khổng lồ be used constantly if not, your acne can come back, especially if the cause is hormonal (like me). These products vày not cure acne. They help keep it at bay.
