A little drying, but effective
Posted 1/14/2016 by Laura
I do not use this moisturizer every night. I tried that when I bought it, but it died out my semi-oily skin too much. I use it maybe once or twice a week to help my skin stay clear. It does help eat away bacteria that caused my breakouts, but wasn't good for the clear/normal parts of my skin!

Excellent product! Just enough moisturizing without the greasy feel. Will purchase again. Great value for a great price
Seriously good stuff

I already have much less breakout when I start using this. But still, I love this texture! It's really light weighted but tons of moisture, which reminds me of belif water bomb. It keeps my skin soft and comfortable all night. Love this stuff.

This is a wonderful moisturizer especially for skin that has a tendency to break-out!!
Great cream for oily acneic skin!

I use this after my glycolic peels to aid in barrier repair and help keep my skin clear. Love how it doesn't clog me or break me out. It's very light non greasy.

Great daytime moisturizer for my combo skin and no new break outs!

I use this moisturizer after washing with the oily/problem skin cleaner and skin toner. I can feel it soak into my skin. It not only hydrates, it keeps my skin in balance. I tend to have oily skin.

This is a great moisturizer for those with oily acne-prone skin. It feels light and fresh.
I'm not oily but still love it!

Having struggled with breakout prone skin in the past , Clearskin has been my favorite nighttime hydrator. My skin is not necessarily oily either. I have more normal-dry skin since I live in the desert and I'm 46 now, but since its reformulation a couple of years ago, Clearskin provides me with the hydration I need and has helped even my skin tone keeping it clear of any breakouts! Love it! :) You will also love the feel of it when applied !

Love PCA products. Been using them for years. I have problems with Rosacea and oily/dry combo skin. These products address all of the my skin issues and keep me looking young. I use the milder products and I have 50 year old skin. These products are my savior. My only complaint is they are no longer valid for the discounts offered by Skincarerx. Bring back the coupon/discount offers for PCA products!

I love PCA clearskin. I have oily skin and it is very hard to find a good moisturizer.PCA clearskin doesn't make me feel greasy like others. It sinks in the skin and it goes well with my prone to blemishes skin. It feels refreshing and not heavy at all. Nice product.

I have used the entire line for a few years now and I absolutely love it! I still get some breakouts but they are no where near as intense as they used to be. I receive compliments on my skin all the time and since I've been using PCA I actually feel like I can leave my house without makeup (something I never felt comfortable doing before). This is my routine.... Morning: Wash with Phaze 1 for Oily skin, Smoothing Toner, Acne Gel (if I need it), C-Strength 20%, Clearskin, and then Phaze 7. I know it seems like a lot of steps but it really doesn't take that long and it really makes a difference. Just get up 5 minutes earlier and that's all you need! Night: It's the same routine except I leave out the Phaze 7. Sometimes I throw in the blemish bar if my skin is really going haywire and that really helps. My aesthetician suggested I try the BPO 5% cleanser too when I have a problem with breakouts (which is mainly during my cycle). Anyway, I can't say enough great things about PCA! Definitely well worth the money! I LOVE IT!!!

I use the PCA creamy cleanser, the Clear Skin moisturizer and then the Moisturizer SPF every day. When my dermatologist told me about his product, I was told to use then as kind of a maintenace cream. She didn't want it to be my sole moisturizer and definitely wasn't going to be the end-all of my acne. But it would help with acne, soothe, and just improve my skin overall. So don't expect this to be your miracle cure. Expect it to be a piece of the puzzle. And definitely don't use it as your sole moisturizer.
Phaze 18 rocks!

My friend introduced me to pca skin about a year ago. It has saved my face! I've always had problems with dry patchy areas and oily all over. Until I started using phaze 18. The very first time I used it I could yell a difference. The next morning me face was soft and matte all over with no signs of flakes. I'm a customer forever! Thanks PCA.

Love this stuff. I've struggled with acne for years. When i do have a pimple, it brings it to head faster than normal. It does burn my eyes at time, but it is a small price to pay! When i wake up in the morning my skin feels so hydrated! My aesthician recommended this for me. It also helps with evening out skin tone as well!
Best Stuff Ever!

This is by far the best moisturizer I have ever used. I have used everything from la mer to Aveeno and this is the best. IT is very reasonable priced and hydrates very well. I love this stuff and will never switch to anything else--it keeps my skin clear and acne free.

This product is exceptional. The entire PCA line is amazing. I have been using it for eight years, and I always receive complements on my skin. My skin was covered with acne and acne scars before this line. I worked for a Dermatologist for many years as a skin technician, and I have tried many skin care lines. Key Point when using their line: Do Not combine it with other skin care products and use it for several weeks to let your skin resurface before you decide if you like it. Changes in the skin are gradual, not overnight.

I have always had decent skin, generally clear and smooth. But, when I got a pimple, it was a whopper and would stay there for weeks. Anyway, I started using some of the PCA line and I have not had a single pimple and very few blackheads in one year. Be cautious not to get this too close to your eyes, it is quite painful. I love how silky this makes my skin feel. I use it morning and night and follow with the hydrator in the morning. I also use acne cream (nust buy!!), nutrient toner, pigment gel, and the hydrator +spf. I love it all!!

i have been washing with bpo cleanserr, followed with smoothing toner, then clearskin. it's only been 2 weeks and i'm not sure if it's working. i did notice that if i get this near my eyes, it burns and stings like crazy. also leaves my face kinda red. if anyone else noticed or have suggestions please let me know. thank you
love this stuff

For years I have had ups and downs with my skin. In my 40's now, I thought breakouts were going to be a distant memory. But I still get them and my skin is still oily too. The problem was that the products out there dried out my skin so much! Too much, and the breakouts would get worse. So I tried PCA phaze 18 and WOW!! No more dried out itchy skin! It helped clear me up and kept my skin soft too. I buy 2 at a time just so that I won't run out. I love this stuff!

I love the whole PCA acne line. I have battled breakouts since I turned 13 and 15 years later I still had to battle it. NEVER have I found anything better than PCA. Its true it is a lot stronger than most products so you might have some burning/redness. but if you can just push through it for a few months and I swear your skin WILL adjust and become clearer and clearer. I wouldnt reccomend wearing during day just as a nighttime cream. I suggest using the all over body perfector as a daytime moisurizer. If you suffer from acne Id definitely reccomend getting a PCA peel as well. Again love this line!
It does work!!

Hello all, I hope this review helps those out there like me. When I turned 30, my skin started to change. I have oily skin, and would use many different products. I would stress out and cry because nothing seemed to work (also making it worse). After the last time I tried proactiv, I went to a spa that was giving a facial special and they used PCA. I thought okay, I'd give a try. I use the blemish bar at first and now no more breakouts. I do the whole product line, alternating the treatments. My husband can't stop commenting on how good my skin looks again. I now look forward to washing my face twice a day now, and it has only been 1 month since I started. Thanks PCA!
