Apply to dampened skin, leave on for 10 minutes and rinse off with warm water. Can be used up to two to three times a week. If going outside, use an SPF 15 product or higher. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application use.

Tip: Can be used as an overnight spot treatment. Dab onto affected area and leave on overnight. In the morning, rinse off with warm water. Can be used up to three times a week.

Precautions: For external use only. When using this product skin irritation and dryness is 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. Apply only to areas with acne. Do not use on broken skin or large areas of the skin. Avoid unnecessary sun exposure and use a sunscreen. Avoid contact with the 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 three days. If no discomfort occurs, follow the directions stated below.

Sensitivity Test: As a mask: apply to dampened skin, leave on for 10 minutes and rinse off with warm water. Can be used up to two or three times a week. If going outside, use an SPF 15 product or higher. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application use. Can be used as an overnight spot treatment. 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.

    Comments about Proactiv Skin Purifying Mask:

    At the first sign of a breakout, dab a bit of this mask on the spot and it is gone the next day. Contains sulfer so some may be bothered by the smell, but it doesn't bother me. It is drying on my skin so you have to use according to your skin type. I've used once as an all-over facial mask just for a medicinal-type treatment, but applied very sparingly. Do not date leave on linger than advised. Pro-active products are very drying to my combination skin.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Very happy with delivery.

            Comments about Proactiv Skin Purifying Mask:

            I applied the mask exactly the way it says too. I am not in love with the texture it feels like an exfoliating face wash. I have only used product twice since I purchased it last week so I don't think it's amazing, but when I reviewed it before purchasing it I did not realize proactiv re formulated it. I will use because it's so expensive but am not sure I will buy again.

              Comments about Proactiv Skin Purifying Mask:

              I use this product as an overnight spot treatment to bring down cystic pimples over night. It it has no head, it will just start drying it up and taking the "ouch" out of it. If it does develop a head, it pulls all the yuck to the head and takes the pressure off the area around it. Sometimes I will also just use this as a mask. But I usually save it random deeper pimples that come up. I use this as needed. I am glad Ulta is carrying this now. It is so much easier to get my hands on now. I hate the full three step system...it is way too harsh for my dry, sensitive skin. But this mask used as a spot treatment and the Proactiv lotion (Repairing I think it is called) from the three step system are the two parts of this line that I love and have used for over 10 years.

              I noticed a difference in my skin after the first 2 uses and my acne started clearing up fast. It does dry your face out so be sure to use a good moisturizer.

                    You can use this product as a mask or as an overnight spot treatment for affected areas. As a mask, apply to wet skin, leave on for 10 minutes and then rinse off with warm water. For the overnight treatment, dab onto the affected area only and leave on overnight. In the morning, rinse this off with warm water. This can be used 2- 3 times a week!
