Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.I recently purchased this product for the first time. Unfortunately I have given up using it because it smells bad, like it may be too old. The product was not sealed when I received it and it is not marked with a expiration date which I find problematic from a customer protection point of view. I have over the years purchased many Paula’s Choice products that I have been satisfied with, but it is a big disadvanrage that most products are not sealed and are not marked with an expiration date. I won’t be buying this product again.
Customer Care: Hello and thanks for your comments! We are sorry to hear you do not like the smell of this product. Smell can be interpreted differently from one customer to the next based on their sensitivity level. We hope you are satisfied with the solution we have presented to you.I've oily skin with mild couperosis around my nose and chin area, some hyper-pigmentation here and there, acne scars, what can I say I've got it all... so it was really hard to find a good product that will address all of these issues at the same time. But this amazing product seems to be the perfect one! It doesn't irritate my skin, leaves no greaseness, gets absorbed really quickly, I've no words to describe how happy I am with all PC line this one included!I always had oily skin with hormonal breakouts throughout my life. Even now at 50 I do get occasional breakouts causing dark spots. This product has been a game changer for me, I only use a tiny bit on the actual dark spot twice a day after my routine. It gradually clears away in 4-5 days. Impressive.I really like this product, it feels great on the skin and I can see the dark spots on my cheeks dissapearing slowly. I looked at some old photos the other day, from when I was 17 years old or so - and found I had the exact same spots on my left cheek back then as I do now, at 26, only they are a lot less visible and some have disappeared. So I can definately tell that something is working - I do use other Paulas Choice products too though, so I can't attribute it to this alone I guess. After I added it to my regimen I do think it sped up the process though.This item together with 2% BHA has helped to clean the impurities in my skin and to keep the pores open. This is a multi-purpose product which is also glorified my skin, and helped to reduce the red marks. the combination of these two products is working.Very good product. Brown spots faded in one week.At firts I was disappointed by this product. I used it every other day in the morning with BHA and I had a feeling that it did absolutely nothing. Yet when I tried to use it every day together with my BHA lotion, it caused dry patchess on my nose and cheeks. Than I changed the routine - I started to put this on after toning every night (without the BHA) and in the morning I put only the BHA lotion. And it did miracles! No dry patches, my skin is smooth like it has never been before, my rosacea is less noticable and I don't get any new blemishes at all. You just have to experiment with it a little bit and give it time - I started to see positive impact after six weeks or so. Thanks, Paula!really really good product. it really reduces blemishes and blackheads. This does help to fade red marks but my skin is not magically perfect after this product. It just really help with breakouts, so I would recommend it :DI have very sensitive, acne oily - but kind of weak skin with discolourations, age 35. This product claims to improve all of these, but unfortunately id did not. When I spread the product on the face, after ten minutes the skin becomes red and irritated. I try to give it a time, I used half of the tube so far, but nothing changed. Pity it did not work for me. I might try the vitamin C product as it can be more mild ... I do not have any allergic reaction on aspirin.I'm just finishing my first tube of this and a new one is already waiting for me in the bathroom cabinet. I'm in love! I'm extremely pale and my main skin issues are dry, dull skin, sun spots/freckles around my eyes and cheekbones (due to sun damage when I was younger and tried to sunbathe - not a good idea!) and persistent tiny dry blackheads on my nose.
I was never happy with grainy exfoliating creams, they left my skin red and irritated no matter how gently I tried to use them. So of course I was overjoyed to finally find Paula's chemical exfoliators. I have tried almost every AHA and BHA product in her line and still love them fiercely. But after starting to use this product I have not needed to reach for those for a long time. In the evening I apply a pea sized amount of this creamy stuff to my face after my toner (Paula's Resist Replenishing Toner, I adore it as well by the way) and hardly even need to follow with a night cream because it leaves my skin feeling so nice on it's own. The product smells a bit funky but the smell evaporates quickly and I have gotten used to it.
My blackheads have practically vanished, my skin color is much more even and I need less make up to cover the blotchiness. My sun spots are slowly lightening as well, though this is not as fast as I would have hoped. Before starting to use this product I usually reached for one or another AHA or BHA exfoliator at least three times a week. If I used them too often my skin would feel too scrubbed, after too long pause between uses my skin would feel rough and thick and uneven. The climate, hormones, what have you would add their effect and require changes in my routine. Now I don't need to worry about that because this product, used daily, has given me all the benefits and none of the drawbacks of other chemical exfoliators. I plan to give my sister a tube as well for testing :)This cream (of which you only need a tiny amount) is a wonder.
It mattifies, soothes and reduces redness over time. I stopped using it for a few weeks after finishing my first tube and noticed a return of the 'rosy cheeks' that I wasn't particularly happy with.
But I'm now on my third tube and still loving it, it really does everything it claims to do.
Love it!This is truly a miracle worker -does everything it claims and then some. After using the RESIST Skin Transforming Multi-correction Treatment for quite a while now, I don't need any makeup to cover up discolorations and blemishes anymore. Both problems are almost gone thanks to this amazing product! Only downside is the prize, but otherwise, try it -you won't regret it!I don't know what exactly to say about this product. I didn't notice any effect on my skin. Maybe isn't the kind of product I need because my skin is in a good state already but I wanted to try it. So my feelings are that I know that this is a good product but it didn't give me anything I needed.After I used it for about 2 weeks, I did not get the results I expected, but I gave it another chance.
And I was really happy that I did!! After a month, my skin was perfect!!
No more breakouts - AT ALL!! Not even when I am having my "monthly".
It may not have an amazing effect on my sun "spots" - but I am very, very pleased with my now nearly perfect skin, without breakouts.This product is just fantastic. Perfect for my half oily, half dry 36 year old skin, prone to shine and breakouts.
Would recommend it to anyone. Thanks again, Paula!It is a very good product!!!This Azelaic acid product promises to improve skin tone and lessens breakouts while protect skin from free radical damage. And it does all that! I have been using this only two weeks at mornings and it brightens my face right away while leaving my oily skin looking matte and fresh. It also has very pleasant scent and texture.
I get occasionally breakouts and already feel that my skin is more clear (Even thought my skin has changed dramatically since i started using other PC products 5 months ago).
I have some discolorations spots and i read that its good to use this product at least 6 months to see best results from Azelaic acid. I will do an update review since time goes on to see what happened to those brown spots.

Frequently asked questions
Is the dicA cialezA Booster an alternative to anti-acne products medicated with benzoyl peroxide?
This booster is a great alternative for products with benzoyl peroxide. The product contains a high amount of dica cialeza, which is believed to have an antibacterial effect against acne-causing bacteria. It also functions as a potent anti-inflammatory, so it helps reduce the swelling and redness that often accompanies acne. dica cialezA can be a great alternative for those with breakouts whose skin cannot tolerate benzoyl peroxide.
Is there another Paula's Choice comparable to the dicA cialezA Booster with dica cialeza + BHA?
Our dicA cialezA Booster with dica cialeza + BHA is identical to Clear Daily Clearing Treatment with dica cialeza + BHA.
