Proactiv's gentle all-over cleanser that's perfect for the body. Smooth exfoliating beads lift away dead skin cells, while our special formula containing 2% salicylic acid helps unclog pores and reduce oiliness to clear acne and help prevent future breakouts wherever they may occur.

Features & Benefits:
  • Clears acne blemishes on the body
  • Unclogs pores to clear and help prevent whiteheads, blackheads, and future breakouts
  • Dissolves impurities to help purify and refine the appearance of pores
  • Gentle beads exfoliate dull, dead skin cells to reveal softer, smoother skin
  • Designed to leave skin feeling refreshed, never tight or dry
Apply to dampened skin and gently massage. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Pat dry. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application use. May need to shake product before use.

Precautions: For external use only. When using this product do not use this product more than three times per day. Skin irritation and dryness are more likely to occur if you use another topical acne medication at the same time. If irritation occurs, only use one topical acne medication at a time. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, rinse eyes thoroughly with water. Stop use and ask a doctor if irritation becomes severe. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.

Sensitivity Test for a New User: Apply product sparingly to one or two small affected areas during the first 3 days. If no discomfort occurs, follow the directions stated below.

Sensitivity Test: Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer and rinse thoroughly 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.
Active: Salicylic Acid 2%.

    Comments about Proactiv Deep Cleansing Wash:

    I've been in search of a good face wash for awhile now, so I thought I'd give proactiv a try since this has such good reviews. At first, this really seemed like it was working. My skin was looking clearer, blemishes were going away, and it made my skin feel very clean. This lasted for about 2 weeks, then it all stopped abruptly. My skin went haywire, it started breaking out bad, and I'm not talking about small, little pimples. I'm talking huge, under the skin pimples all across my chin and jawline and a million small, clogged pores and whiteheads on my forehead, all over my cheeks, and nose, which is abnormal for me. I usually only break out on my chin and jawline, but not after using this. Honestly, my skin has never looked worse, so many pimples and so much redness. It's very embarassing! I then started to realize that the little micobeads in this had been clogging up my pores because they're so hard to rinse off after washing. I used the entire bottle a little over a month because I wanted to give it a fair chance, but this is a definite no from me. I've switched to a very gentle, soap free cleanser for now until my skin heals. I wouldn't suggest using this product if your pores get clogged easily or if you have somewhat sensitive skin because it won't end well!

                    My 53 year old husband has had a sudden outbreak of painful acne/blackheads on his chest, arms, and back and after numerous visits to the dermatologist with no results I told him that I was buying proactiv and asked him just to try it. BEST THING EVER!!!! His painful acne is clearing daily and after only s few days use he feels much better!

                      I tried to regular/original proactiv in high school and it did not work for me. I am now 21 and still have acne on my face, back and chest. I'm so glad I got the deal for this on their 21 days of beauty because it is a good deal for the size of the product. It did clear up my acne but I personally believe it works best with the 3 step system which I also bought and I love. I did notice a drastic difference. I wanted to hate this and the 3 step system because it is a bit pricey for me since I'm a college student, but you do get what you pay for. Will be repurchasing this and the 3 step system.
