Great for manual pore extraction

Comments about Proactiv Blackhead Dissolving Gel:

I rotate this around my face; different region every night. I leave it on for 5 minutes in one zone, then use my blackhead extraction tool to remove my blackheads for another few minutes. They just slide right out with minimal pressure! Zero redness when I'm done. Works way better than steaming. Then I rinse again, apply low dose BPO, moisturize, and go to bed. It feels great not having speckles of gray all over my natural glow. My pores might be large from years of bad products, but theres nothing in them so my tone is much more even.

Not a fan of washing my face then applying this and waiting 15 min to wash it off. But it does seem to help
