  • Proactiv Repairing Treatment

    Proactiv Repairing Treatment

    Best kept secret

    This is the key to the proactive daily system. This lotion is two percent Benzoyl Peroxide and is the ONLY thing that can clear a major breakout on my face overnight. I hate products with Salicylic Acid because they always burn my skin, dry it out and then end up creating more acne. I can literally put the proactive repairing lotion on a huge breakout before I go to bed and the only thing left in the morning are one or two reddish marks where some of the bigger bumps were the night before.

  • Proactiv Oil-Free Moisture with SPF 15

    This is the only moisturizer I can use during the summer when my skin gets super greasy. With other moisturizers, my face is shiny and my makeup is melting off by 3:00pm, but with this moisturizer my skin stays balanced all day.

  • Proactiv Renewing Cleanser

    I cannot go a day without this cleanser. This is the only product which can keep my skin clear of acne. I've tried Murad, Dr. Haushka, Olaf Henrikkson, Clearasil, Neutrogena, Clean & Clear, Biore, Clinique, Avon, Mary Kay and every other over the counter face wash you can imagine. Nothing, absolutely nothing worked. The microbead scrubbies in this facewash are much finer than others I've tried like the St. Ives Apricot scrub. Something about the scrubbies in this cleanser removes dead skin better than anything else I've tried.

  • Proactiv Revitalizing Toner

    Proactiv Revitalizing Toner

    Gentle but effective

    This stuff is gentle enough to use on my eye area. It has witch hazel in it, which eliminates oil, but it also helps prevent my skin from drying out. It smells great and complements the proactive cleansers very well. Also, if you use their benzoyl peroxide replenishing lotion, this is a great prep for your skin before you apply that lotion.

  • Proactiv Refining Mask

    Proactiv Refining Mask

    The only mask I can use

    I don't believe in masks, I think they're a waste of money. But this mask is truly an essential part of the proactive line. This thing is a lifesaver during the summer, especially after spending a day out on the lake and coming in covered in lake goop. If you're just starting out with proactive, this is the product that makes the biggest difference. When I first used proactive I went way overboard and used this guy every single night. Since my skin was adjusting to the products, I got very dried out, but all of my bumps disappeared in two weeks. Now I use this mask as maintenance about twice a week with no dryout and just great results.

  • Proactiv Green Tea Moisturizer
    10.0

    Proactiv Green Tea Moisturizer

    Super moisture without the grease

    Sometimes my skin gets really dry and flaky during the winter after braving sub-zero temperatures at the bus stop morning and night. I don't want to stop my acne routine, but I need something that will fight the flakes and moisturize really well without clogging my pores. This is the perfect solution for sensitive acne prone skin whenever you have a dry-out and your face turns into flake city. I definitely DO NOT agree with crunchiemumma's review, this stuff is the perfect solution for people who need deep moisture but can't handle goopy pore-clogging moisturizers. Plus, it smells AMAZING.

  • Proactiv Makeup Removing Cloths

    Sometimes I am way too beat from a long day at work or a long night out to go through my whole facial routine. These towelettes are a super-fast way to wipe off all of the makeup, sweat and oil that have accumulated on my face. I have very acne-prone skin and some nights when I just can't bring myself to go through the acne routine, I will just use one of these and when I wake up the next day my face won't have broken out from the rigors of the day before. Great for sensitive eye area too.

  • Proactiv Daily Protection Plus Sunscreen w/SPF 15

    This is one of the only sunscreens I can use on my face. It is lightweight and doesn't clog my pores or have that strong "day-at-the-pool" smell that even natural products like Alba botanicals seem to have. If you have sensitive or acne-prone skin you should get a hold of this. Also, most people don't know that sun can CAUSE more acne. The sun initially will dry up stray bumps, but it thickens your skin, making it harder to slough off the top layer of dead skin cells and your pores end up mega-clogged. Just an fyi to beach bunnies who look to the sun as an acne cure.
