Avoid unnecessary sun exposure and use a sunscreen. Avoid contact with the eyes, lips, and mouth. Avoid contact with hair and dyed fabrics, which may be bleached by this product. Skin irritation may occur, characterized by redness, burning, itching, peeling, or possibly swelling. Irritation may be reduced by using the product less frequently or in a lower concentration. 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: Cleanse the skin thoroughly before applying this product. 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. If going outside, apply sunscreen after using this product. If irritation or sensitivity develops, stop use of both products and ask a doctor.

      This is a must have ! Blemishes clear up quicker. Does not dry out surrounding skin, which makes it worse.

      Doesn't work

      from Pinellas Park, FL

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

        Cons

        • Fragrant smell
        • Ineffective

        Best Uses

          Comments about Proactiv Emergency Blemish Relief:

          I have oily acne prone skin. I bought this because I usually always have an acne spot on my chin and it's fairly big. This did not work overnight, it did not work within a day, no two days. It does not work. My acne spot has become larger since using it and it smells like perfume which is probably why it does not work. My neutrogena acne spot treatment works better and more effectively. Save your money.

          Makes acne worse

          By Anonymous

          from Michigan

          Comments about Proactiv Emergency Blemish Relief:

          Proactive uses a mind trick. Their products feel nice and make it seem like the product is working. But really they are adding ingredients that will make your acne worse in the long run. All to keep you buying their product.

          By Melissa

          from Colorado Springs Colorado

          Verified Reviewer

          Pros

          • Not too expensive

          Cons

            Best Uses

            • Stubborn pimples

            Comments about Proactiv Emergency Blemish Relief:

            Okay so - I am 27 and finally caved in on proactiv. Nothing was working. All the negative comments steered me away. Well - I finally bought the three step system and this spot treatment. Holy Hannah. It works. Two marks I've had for over 2 weeks that wouldn't budge are over 90% gone overnight. No I am not paid for my review nor do I get anything out of it. I want other women to feel beautiful and know there is hope for better skin. Photo I am uploading is 100% natural. No filters and absolutely zero make up. My skin is almost completely clear with their system and this spot treatment. You have nothing to lose in the uphill battle with acne. Get it !

                  Comments about Proactiv Emergency Blemish Relief:

                  Works well. I'm an acne-prone adult and use this as soon as I can tell a blemish is developing. I use it after my moisturizer at night and in the morning, even under my makeup, too.
