How I CLEARED my acne: Paula’s Choice CLEAR Extra Strength REVIEW

On to the review!

My Skin Type.

I have a medical condition which causes severe acne, and oily skin…. and I am no stranger to clay masks. One of the most important things for me in a mask is that it does not break me out, and a bonus is if it reduces the amount of oil on my skin.

The Product.

The product claims to wash off pores and dirt off of the face, while absorbing excess sebum. It also has a bunch of ingredients that I like in my masks including green tea, charcoal, and pomegranate! I purchased mine from Amazon.com, Here.

I would be careful with leaving the lid off of the product for too long, as it started to bubble in the container!

 

The Review.

BEFORE PICTURE: 
I have a lot of acne scarring and texture, and blackheads around my nose area. The big red mark on my cheek bone is actually an open wound that popped during face washing (was that TMI?) but we can see how this mask does on open acne.

This product was very thick, and smelled like.. soap? (but like a good soap) It comes with a little spatula, so you don’t have to dip your fingers into the jar.

Before I could finish applying it to my face it already started to bubble up and turn gray. My open, active, acne spot did feel slightly sore when swiping the mask over, but it did not burn or feel any different afterwards.

Here is the weirdness that happened on my face over the next 7 minutes….

The product made my skin feel very tingly as it bubbled. It tickled my face the whole time.. which kinda made me feel like it would be good for my pores? If you hate that sensation, then this mask may not be right for you.

I’m glad I avoided the under eye and under nose area because this stuff BUBBLES…. some of it got in my eye lash and I had to be very careful getting it off.

The instructions said to rub the product in after 5 minutes, and you can hear that bubbling as you rub it in. I just did half of my face so you can see the difference. It did begin to bubble up again after being rubbed in, but didn’t quite bubble up as much as it did originally.

Rinsing with water was a little tough…
I probably took a good 3 minutes to wash this stuff completely off my face

AND

It left so many suds in the sink..

AFTER

My skin honestly felt a little tight after I rinsed all of this stuff off… If you have dry skin this might not be the mask for you. I just continued on with my normal skin care.

BEFORE (One more time)

AFTER:

My skin looks brighter, partially because of the angle the flash hit my face… BUT also, some of the redness around my acne and scarring looks calmed down. Also, up close I thought my black heads looked a little less black… They were still there, as you can see in this next picture (especially on the right side of my nose), but the color of the blackhead looked more gray/white!

Welcome to my pores. I normally have pretty severe black heads but they look more white/gray! Too bad pores are permanent though =/

Final Review

4-stars

This product get a solid 4 out of 5 stars from me. One, it’s super affordable. Two, it’s very fun! I definitely had a good time with my mom trying this one out… and Three, it really gets your face nice a clean. I read the claims more carefully, and it did claim to be able to take make up off as well… so I might use it for that purpose! It only gets 1 star off because it was a pain to get off my skin, and once the mud mask gets on any surface it WILL NOT come off… I can see how this really hugs the dirt and pulls it off the skin though! I definitely recommend trying this product, it is available Here from the original seller on Amazon.com.

 

Be happy and stay healthy! Until next time!
