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.

Precautions: Do not use if you have very sensitive skin or are sensitive to benzoyl peroxide. For external use only. When using this product, 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 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 direction stated below.

      Comments about Proactiv Pore Targeting Treatment:

      I love this product for my adult combo skin. I have adult acne across my T zone. This keeps my skin clear and helps my pores stay clear. I use this religiously twice a day. It does not dry my skin out.

      Service and delivery comments:

      OMG, delivery was very quick, I received it a day before I expected, so great.

      Comments about Proactiv Pore Targeting Treatment:

      I'm 46, but still extremely oily. I have blackheads on my nose and chin. As I have lost elasticity in my skin, I notice my pores much more. Pore Targeting Treatment helps better than any other product I've tried, but it's not near as effective as the old "Repair Treatment." I only use this step and only a couple times a week. I wish it was sold in a smaller bottle. I am a licensed Aesthetician and though many others do not hold my opinion of ProActive, I do believe in the 3-step system for true acne. Just remember that these products are drying and although you may not need "moisture" you still DEFINITELY need Hydration! The ProActive Tea Tree Moisturizer is SUPER for this! Don't let the word moisturizer scare you like I use to!
