Skin Care Review: Proactiv

by D.


Does help smooth skin and make breakouts less frequent

Bottles are too small, the repair lotion will stain dark clothes almost like bleach.

I have been using proactiv for about a year. I have oily skin and at the age of 31 still breakout often. I found it does help control breakouts but not enough. When I do breakout it usually lasts less than a week. I like the deep cleansing wash better than the usual one that comes with the kit-it cleans better. I like using the refining mask because it really refreshes your skin & dries out excisting blemishes. Would recommend using sunscreen because your face will be more sensitive when you are out in the sun.

Would recommend using as an ongoing treatment but does not prevent 100% of breakouts.
