3-Step System

Item #: 2500638

Proactiv+ is an acne treatment system with their exclusive Smart Target technology that delivers even more medicine to the pores for faster results. The three synergistic steps were formulated for daily use to clear acne blemishes, help prevent future breakouts and promote skin that is consistently clear, smooth, and radiant.

Features & Benefits:
  • Paraben-free.
  • Non-comedogenic.
  • Dermatologist-tested.
  • Suitable for all skin types.

Ingredients:

Skin Smoothing Exfoliator:
  • Benzoyl Peroxide: Contains micro-crystal benzoyl peroxide (BPO) designed to quickly kill acne-causing bacteria to clear acne blemishes and help prevent new ones from forming.
  • Pore Resurfacer: Gentle exfoliating beads work together with glycolic acid to help slough away dull, dry layers of dead skin cells, helping to clear pores and prep them for the Pore Targeting Treatment.

Pore Targeting Treatment:
  • Smart Target Benzoyl Peroxide: Exclusive technology designed to deliver BPO acne medicine directly into pores to help prevent dryness and irritation of the skin.

Complexion Perfecting Hydrator:
  • Salicylic Acid: An acne medicine designed to help clear pores of cellular debris and keep them clear -helping to minimize the look of pores for a more luminous complexion.
  • Skin Brightening Complex: Natural skin brighteners such as kojic acid, licorice extract, bearberry and sophora root are designed to help fade the appearance of post-acne marks and even skin tone.
  • Moisturizing Complex: Includes a powerful humectant, hyaluronic acid, plus other hydrating ingredients to help alleviate dryness for softer, smoother looking skin.

A $75 value!

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.
