Skin Care Review: ProActiv Skin Repairing Lotion

by Anonymous, Gatineau Canada

Adverse Effects

No benefits whatsoever

Excessive dryness of the skin, irritation and flaking Redness

Part of ProActiv's 3-step system for fighting acne, the Repairing Lotion is anything but. Unlike what its name implies, the repairing lotion is not a moisturizer, but a very strong lotion containing benzoyle peroxide. The indications are to use it twice daily, once if irritation occurs. I used it once a day from the start, and it didn't help my skin at all. I have combination skin (really greasy forehead, nose, chin and upper cheeks; very dry everywhere else) and it did not take to that lotion well at all. My face was simultaneously oily and flaky, which is both uncomfortable and gross. Plus, it did not clear my complexion at all. It also wrinkled the skin beneath my eyes when it ran there. A real disappointment.

Very strong product to be used sporadically at the most, if at all.

Price (paid by reviewer)
30$ for 3 piece system
