Skin Smoothing Exfoliator: Step 1 in the Proactiv+ 3-part system. Use twice daily, morning and night. Treat your whole face. Apply a small amount to dampened skin and gently massage with fingertips for 1 to 2 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Pat dry and follow with Step 2, the Pore Targeting Treatment and Step 3 the Complexion Perfecting Hydrator. If going outside, use a broad spectrum SPF 15 or higher.

Pore Targeting Treatment: Clean the skin thoroughly with Step 1 Skin Smoothing Exfoliator before applying this product. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day. If going outside, apply sunscreen after using this product. If irritation or sensitivity develops, stop use of both products and ask a doctor. Follow with Step 3 Complexion Perfecting Hydrator.

Complexion Perfecting Hydrator: Apply Step 3 Complexion Perfecting Hydrator after completing Steps 1 and 2 of the Proactiv+ Core 3-step system. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day. If going outside, apply sunscreen after using this product. If irritation or sensitivity develops, stop use of both products and ask a doctor.

Comments about Proactiv 3-Step System Deluxe Size:

I had really bad cystic adult acne and I tried everything (literally everything) to get rid of it. I've been using proactiv for 4 months and have been taking fish oil pills while drinking tons of water. My skin has gotten so much better. The dark scars have faded and I have less breakouts. Everyone skin is different but proactiv worked the best for me.

    Comments about Proactiv 3-Step System Deluxe Size:

    I used the original Proactiv formula for years when I was a teenager. In my 20s, I switched to Proactiv Plus and had much better results than I ever had with the first formula. However, I was using these products twice a day for almost 15 years...By my late twenties, I felt like they were drying my skin out far too much and ultimately making me look older. A year ago, I decided to stop using these products altogether and focused my skincare routine on anti-aging and hydrating. Needless to say, it's a been a very long year of breakouts all over my face, dark spots, and it's been getting worse every month. Sadly, I've realized that the acne I got as a teenager has progressed into adult acne. A week ago, I decided to go back to Proactiv Plus and I am already seeing big changes in my skin. Once I get my face under control I plan to start using it once per day instead of twice, just to avoid the dryness that initially made me stop using it. Though I'm very happy it's working, I really worry about using benzoyl peroxide for the next decade or two depending on how long my adult acne lingers. Overuse of products like this cause many issues over time. In the last year, I tried so many things to keep my skin clear, but ultimately, nothing works for me as well as this formula. That being said, I do love these products because they work so well for me, but it really is a slippery slope.

    Pros

    • Clears skin fast

    Cons

    • Bleaches eyebrows
    • Bleaches pillowcases
    • Dry skin

    Best Uses

    • Morning and night

    Comments about Proactiv 3-Step System Deluxe Size:

    Overall this cleared my skin fast the only down fall is it bleachs your eyebrow and your pillowcase and makes your skin really dry but if you use a moisturizer without oil after the third step it helps a lot.

    Thank you Ulta for selling this product so I can redeem my points instead of buying from Proactiv myself! This newer line of Proactiv isn't harsh on my sensitive skin & I'd recommend it to anyone who struggles w/ acne or wants a clear face!

        Hello! The exfoliating beads and salicylic acid in this special formula helps unclog pores and reduce oiliness to clear acne & help prevent future breakouts. If your acne is more severe, we would recommend one of our 3-step systems.
