Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10, Maximum Strength 1 oz (28 g)

our price: $6.49$6.49 / oz
in stock

Here's a wonderfully effective acne preparation that requires no prescription: The secret is a 10-percent solution of benzoyl peroxide in a clear gel formula that leaves you free of tell-tale white splotches common to so many skin-treatment creams. You start with once-a-day topical applications, then move up to thrice-daily, if needed.

This stuff is seriously the only stuff that has ever worked to clear up my acne. It's been a week and I went from a crater face to a crystal clear complexion.

However, all products work only when you use them correctly.

If you're going to just dab this all over your face and do nothing else then you have another thing coming.

First of all, you must start a skincare routine. For this to work, you must apply to clean skin. Once you start breaking out, you have to get rid of the current acne and then maintain a clean face.

This is what worked for me: Every morning and every night I wash my face with an acne cleanser. I dry my face and with a cotton pad I apply witch hazel (you can use any toner). If it's daytime, I apply a moisturizer after this procedure (if you don't use a moisturizer, start! if you don't moisturize your skin, your skin will attempt to do it itself, becoming oily and breaking out), I use Clean and Clear Morning Burst Moisturizer Gel. If it's daytime, this is all I do. If it's nighttime, after applying the toner, instead of using the moisturizer, making sure my hands are extremely clean, I apply the Clean and Clear Persa-Gel. Make sure it dries completely before going to bed.

Do this routine for a week and you will see results immediately! Even after one day, this stuff works. Your face will be noticeably clearer. Do note, in one night your acne won't fade, but big zits will shrink in size and small ones may be completely gone. Keep it at for a week and eventually it'll zap all of them away.

Also, don't be alarmed. When using this for the first time, you may break out more. This is just the benzoyl peroxide working and getting rid of the acne that was already emerging under your skin, let it get it all out and slowly devour it!

Once you're all clear, I recommend you keep using this, but a smaller amount for prevention, especially in areas on your face that tend to be oilier.

Added benefits: The benzoyl peroxide may bleach peach fuzz and fade acne scars!

Love, love, love this stuff!

Totally recommend.

I use this as a spot treatment on my occasional blemishes. They go away in a couple days, but I really don't know if the gel has anything to do with it or if they just go away on their own. I was hoping for more of a drying clear gel that I could put on spots in the morning, but this is a visible, smelly white cream. It isn't terrible, but I won't buy it again.

Comments about Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10, Maximum Strength, 1 oz:

Again, for ~ [$], it's difficult to expect miracles from this product, but what it lacks in price point, it more than makes up for in its effectiveness, if only by virtue of the fact that it desiccates virtually EVERYTHING on contact. Contrary to what the package indicates, this really shouldn't be applied in a thin film over any sort of blemish > several mm in diameter. The 10% formulation is quite strong, and as with all products whose active ingredient is benzoyl peroxide, one must take extra special care with t-shirts, towels, pillow cases, etc. Still, as spot treatments go, this one works quite well on superficial blemishes and minor imperfections. I found that small dab applied on the tip of a moistened q-tip works quite well.

I love this product! It works so much better than other benzoyl peroxide acne products out there. I don't know what clean & clear has added to make it work better, but they've done a fantastic job!

Tips to make this product work.

For those people who say it's too harsh and makes their face too puffy and irritated, that is a normal sign that it's working, your face is trying to cope with the chemical, if you just give up it won't work.

For those people who have sensitive skin, if this product irritates your skin when applied, apply a small quantity or just buy a lower strength one like, 5%, or 2.5%.

For those people who think it's ineffective, try to apply more doses of it. You should start to feel your skin getting dry and irritated as it's coping with it.

Clears pimples, dries out clogged pores

By Donna

Pros

  • Easy To Use
  • Minimizes Pores
  • Works Effectively

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Adult Acne
    • Blackheads & Whiteheads
    • Moderate Acne
    • Teen Acne

    Comments about Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10, Maximum Strength, 1 oz:

    I suffer from occasional pimples and clogged pores on my t-zone.

    Because my skin problems are caused by oily skin, I use this product to dry my skin out. No oil = no clogged pores = no pimples.

    I apply a thin layer to my t-zone at night because my skin gets really oily overnight & clogs up my pores further. By using this, I prevent the oiliness at night which prevents clogged pores in the morning. And I wake up with MUCH noticeably smaller pores the following morning.

    If I have a pimple or feel one coming out, I apply a THICK layer to the spot overnight. The pimple is usually gone after 1, if not 2 days.

    Of course, this product is very drying. So if you have dry skin, ONLY apply it to your problem areas.

    I also recommend using this as an overnight treatment, so that in the day time, you can slather on your moisturizers to regain the moisture balance of your skin.

      Comments about Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10, Maximum Strength, 1 oz:

      I have tried so many different acne products with no luck over the last 15 years. Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10 was literally a miracle cream for me. I use it very sparingly only in my breakout areas, and it works beautifully. It doesnt irritate my sensitive skin. I am so grateful to have clear skin now. I hope they never discontinue this product now that I have finally found something that actually works!!!! Thank you Clean & Clear. I am so happy. I just wash with Basis Sensitive Soap and use Theraneem Aloe Gel for a moisturizer and dab a small amount of this gel on my breakout areas.

          Comments about Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10, Maximum Strength, 1 oz:

          I had a few big breakouts on my chin and bought this thinking it might help. It worked okay when I put the smallest amount just on the blemish, but when I decided to spread a little amount over the area, that's when it went down hill.
          Only after a few days of using, the breakouts that at first were getting better became worse and turned into huge scabs that weren't healing.
          If you know benzoyl peroxide works for your skin, then this will most likely work for you. I have tried with BP, and now I'm done. Using tea tree & lavender essential oils with aloe vera works much better for me, and doesn't dry out my skin like a mutha! Also... Bye Bye Blemish people!

          This product works, it helps to shrink my pimple overnight (not disappear), my pimple is less inflammed. It stings but still bearable & you have to be careful when applying it as it bleaches your clothes.
