Skin Care Review: Proactiv Repairing Lotion

by Anonymous

Adverse Effects


Dry and Blotchy skin.

First, let me begin by introducing my skin type to you. I have extremely sensitive skin that tends to be dry during the winter months and then oily with dryness in my t-zone area during the rest of the year. Because my skin is so sensitive, I tend to have minor breakouts when the weather changes or when my stress levels change.

Several months prior to my wedding, I noticed that several blemishes began to appear on my forehead. I have known quite a few people who have had success with the Proactiv product line. After some deliberation, I decided to try the basic package; which includes the Renewing Cleanser, Revitalizing Toner and the Repairing Lotion.

Unfortunately, the Repairing Lotion completely dried out my skin. I was left with dry, flaky, red and blotchy skin. My blemishes did not clear, but instead they were further aggravated by use of the product.

These results occurred within 1 week of using the Repairing Lotion. I immediately stopped using the product. The other two products in the basic package are ok and did not seem to have much impact on my skin.

In conclusion, I would not recommend these products for individuals with sensitive skin.
