My skin has been going through so many changes. so I have started using the PCA line just this week. Here's the thing, I know nothing about this line. I know it treats acne and am wondering if PCA will be to harsh on my skin over time.

Please give me your reviews on this line. I really would like to know about their day and evening cream being moisturizing enough for your skin?


If I am repeating a topic as I most surely am I am sorry. I did a search and nothing poped up on the line directly.

I have used a few of the products but not for acne. I don't think it is a harsh line though. I used cleanser #1(not the oily skin one)until #41 came out. You can buy little kits that have a good size amount to try out a variety of the products. This site has some customer reviews in case no one else has any info for you:

Hi Fierce! 6 months back I started using some PCA products. I found the cleanser(Phaze 1) to be drying. However, the moisturizer, rebalance, was very hydrating as was the protecting hydrator with SPF 25, Phaze 7. I also used C-quench serum, Phaze 15, and loved it. It left a slight glow to my complexion. Vitamin C works miracles I think. Also Exlinea, (Phaze 25), was a peptide-based serum and I found that also to be drying. Lastly, Purifying Mask,Phaze 9, was wonderful. The ingredients offer many healing properties. You get 2 with 1, a mask with exfoliants. Leaves a fresh look after applied. Hope this helps but I think with PCA products especially, you need to find the right products for your own skin type.

Christine - which #1 cleanser did you use? They have one for oily/problem skin and one for more normal to dry. I used the ND one and didn't find it drying but then I got to try #41 and just love this one. It is creamy but rinses off well.

Thanks Marie1120! I'll have to try the #41. I have very sensitive skin and live in the desert so that is already a recipe for dryness. I'm always looking for products that are hydrating.

Christine - here is a link to the cleanser that lists some of the ingredients:

The above site has a promotion right now - 15%off if you use code HOLIDAY15. This cleanser reminds me of Skinceuticals creamy cleanser.
