Skin Smoothing Exfoliator: Step 1 in the Proactiv+ 3-part system. Use twice daily, morning and night. Treat your whole face. Apply a small amount to dampened skin and gently massage with fingertips for 1 to 2 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Pat dry and follow with Step 2, the Pore Targeting Treatment and Step 3 the Complexion Perfecting Hydrator. If going outside, use a broad spectrum SPF 15 or higher.

Pore Targeting Treatment: 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.

Complexion Perfecting Hydrator: Apply Step 3 Complexion Perfecting Hydrator after completing Steps 1 and 2 of the Proactiv+ Core 3-step system. 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.

Proactiv+ Review

By 16 year old mild acne some cystic

from Texas

Comments about Proactiv 3-Step System Deluxe Size:

I have been using proactiv+ for the past year and it is the only product that has treated my acne. I've bought every drug store brand skin care item from Noxzema pads, clean and clear, Neutrogena and more. I recently stoped using the proactiv to see if my skin has gotten better on its own. When I did so, I had mild breakouts back. I decided to try a cheaper product to see if i could get any results. I have been using Neutrogena Pomegranate exfoliator and lotion. I have had a breakout everyday using these products. So i've realized proactiv is what works for me. And if you would like a cheaper alternative ,with results, i would suggest Xout. I am a 16 year old girl with mild acne and proactiv+ has changed my life. Having acne prone skin takes an emotional toll on my life. Proactiv+ has helped me feel more confident in my skin and i just want to thank this brand for creating a product that has given me the ability to feel beautiful and confident in my skin. (side note: this product does not prevent all cystic acne but it does help treat it once it shows up)

Works very well for me.

By love it

from Portland, OR

Comments about Proactiv 3-Step System Deluxe Size:

I am over 50 and had used Proactive for years as the only thing that helped my acne - it never went away completely but it went down significantly. Then they came out with Plus and it is way better. My skin is soft and moisturized and it controls my acne 95% of the time. I could never use a moisturizer as it made my acne worse and now this has moisturizing in it. My face definitely feels a lot better.
I have recommended it to friends for years. It definitely has differing effects on different facial types. Friends have tried it and the results have been same as mine to acne getting far worse to the acne is better but their skin is very dry.
If you have acne and are looking for something - buy the mini/travel size and try it. It doesn't take very long to see the results, positive or negative. If it works for you you will find it wonderful.

    Comments about Proactiv 3-Step System Deluxe Size:

    well first let me say that my chin pimples are still coming and almost worse after using this. upon reading that it was drying i got a good mosturizer to use with it because i did see flaking once but the stuff i bought helped. when i first got this i read the directions on the big box all of them came in and it says something different then what the actual bottle says for the exfoliater. then i come on here to read the directions and they are different from BOTH of those. 3 different directions for ONE bottle. how the heck am i supposed to use it right then?????

    Comments about Proactiv 3-Step System Deluxe Size:

    I had really bad cystic adult acne and I tried everything (literally everything) to get rid of it. I've been using proactiv for 4 months and have been taking fish oil pills while drinking tons of water. My skin has gotten so much better. The dark scars have faded and I have less breakouts. Everyone skin is different but proactiv worked the best for me.

        Hello! The exfoliating beads and salicylic acid in this special formula helps unclog pores and reduce oiliness to clear acne & help prevent future breakouts. If your acne is more severe, we would recommend one of our 3-step systems.
