Most Helpful Positive Review Works great under makeup, spot test first
I've been using this as a primer underneath my makeup, this is an oil controlling moisturizer. Don't worry, just because it says moisturizer, it's not overly hydrating and doesn't make you greasy. Make sure you patch test first, I didn't and it irritated my forehead for whatever reason, and only my forehead. By irritated I mean, red, blotchy, and warm; the rest of my face was fine. I would still recommend to a friend because it's a great summer product to have on hand. I received this product as a gift in exchange for an unbiased review.
Most Helpful Critical Review Would not recommend
I bought the new Proactiv MD oil control because an employee suggested it for my oily skin with occasional breakouts. (I wanted to switch from Mario Badescu's aloe lotion) After using it for 3 days it has absolutely wrecked my face. I usually get 1-2 cystic breakouts every few months but after using this I have 6 at once! It did help reduce oil production but left my face a mess! So not worth it, now I have to find something to clear up my face!

This sunscreen stings and burns my eyes. It does not look good under makeup. It pills and looks very greasy and just sits on top of your skin.
I will buy this product again and again.
Michele A. from Downey, Ca.
I usually buy the set but there is never enough of this product in the set so I have to buy a separate bottle. Proactiv is the only product that has kept my skin in check for years!
Enna from California
I love this sunscreen!!Very light, not oily, and no fragrance. I usually use physical sunscreen because I worry chemical sunscreens may irritate skin but this one doesn't. :) definitely would buy again
Burns your eyes
Lis from LA
My eyes kept burning terribly and I couldn't figure it out until I realized it's this lotion. Be careful when you're ash your face, even if it's not around the eyes it can get in and cause a lot of pain. Not worth it to wear this needing to be so careful, doesn't noticeably decrease my shine.
Watch out around your eyes
Grace from Hawaii
I like this lotion, but if you get even the tiniest amount in your eye, it is so painful. Especially if you're outside, the sun makes it even worse. It makes you feel like you're going blind! So I would suggest not using it around the eye
Name is deceiving - doesn't controls oil
Hiba from Reading, PA
Like many other reviews suggesting it doesn't control oil. Yes that's true it doesn't. It makes your face oily right after application but it doesn't bothers me as long as it doesn't irritate my skin. Its a good product but doesn't lives up-to its claim.
My face is still oily
Beauty Queen from Anaheim
My face was super oily.
Makes my skin beautiful even under makeup
Ariel from Chicago
My skin looked great when I applied this . I'm afraid that if I don't use it DAILY though that it would irritate my skin.
Double the oil....
Anna from Raleigh
I have struggled for years with oily skin, talking 10+ years. Proactive oil control does not control my oil at all. If anything it feels even more greasy quicker. I do not recommend this product unfortunately.
i love it!
avery from pittsburgh
it doesn't feel heavy on my skin like a lot of other spf products do for me. it makes my skin feel moisturized. i don't have oily skin but i don't find this too mattifying on my dry skin.
I love this stuff
NeedSomeSun from Hinsdale
This really does keep me matte for 5 hours. And it doesn't make me break out.
I have been on Isotretoin 4 times since I was a teen and I will still develop acne if I don't wash every night and exfoliate 2-3 times a week. I'd guesstimate that 95% of sunscreens, foundations, and primers make me break out. But not this product.
Everyone's skin is different, but for me, this has been a winner. Particularly since my favorite foundation doesn't have sunscreen in it.
For him yes, me no.
HailvBrev from Mason OH
i've never had a problem with acne in my life i used this one time! and it left a huge rash. my face is dry and burns. nothing helps.
HannahML from Mississippi
Literally made my skin MORE oily. I have combination skin & every time after I put it on and let it dry, I'd have to use a blotting sheet.
Made my skin Oily
Jsal from Fresno, CA
I decided to try this product because it was supposed to control oil but I felt my skin would be more oily than usual. Feels fresh on skin but not a good product if you have combination oily skin.
Moisturizing but not greasy
April from Texas
I use this daily over my Cera Ve. I like the Cera ve bit it's a bit greasy whereas this is not. Soaks right in feels moisturizing but not heavy.
Perfect sunblock for those with skin problems!
Kerry Somewhere from FL
Since I live in Florida I have to wear sunblock on a regular basis. I have no problems with this sunblock as I do with others that cause me to break out or have a red face. This sunblock absorbs quickly and moisturizes my face without any issues. I will certainly continue to use this product!
Kat from California
This is great cuz it doesn't clog my pores and it goes great under makeup. I use it as a primer sometimes. Non-greasy and doesn't leave a white cast on your face!! I received this product from Proactiv complimentary in exchange for my honest review.
This sunscreen is now part of my daily routine!
Sophie from Long Beach
I absolutely love this sunscreen. A lot of sunscreens make me really oily and break out in a rash but this sunscreen has been so gentle on my skin and really prevented any oiliness. I also love that there is no strong sunscreen smell and how light weight and easy it is to wear under makeup. Definitely part of my everyday routine now! Proactiv gifted me this product, but the opinions are completely my own based on my experience.
Obsessed with this stuff!
Patrese from Indianapolis,IN
It has cleared up my acne so quick!
Protects skin without feeling greasy
michelled25 from La Habra, CA
I have been searching for a product with sunscreen but most leave my skin greasy, with a white cast, or give me breakouts. This product is great because it does none of those things! It absorbs quickly, no white-cast on skin, and I haven't broken out from this. Plus it goes really well under makeup so it's great for daytime use. All in all I am really liking this! I received this product from Proactiv as a gift in exchange for my honest review.
i was gifted this by Proactiv and I LOVE IT
Markus W from New York
I was gifted this product from Proactiv and am impressed!!! I have very oily skin and this made it so much better. I highly suggest!
Tatiana from Los Angeles
I received this product from Proactiv in exchange for my honest review. I have been trying to find a good SPF moisturizer that I like and I think I finally found the one for me! I have super sensitive skin and this did not break me out. My skin felt moisturized all day!
Love the matte finish
Sana from Texas
PROACTIV Daily Oil Control Moisturizer SPF 30 performance is so impressive, it really helps control oil on my face and I feel it has helped prevent blackheads with long term use. I received this product from Proactiv in exchange for my honest review.
However, I'm already hooked and planning to buy a backup already. It also works well as a primer and helps to get a matte finish look (I take it with me when I travel for this purpose, one less product!) Not the most budget-friendly product but I feel like the formula speaks for itself on this one.
Where has this been all of my life
Diamond from North Hollywood, CA
Proactiv gifted me this product, but the opinions are completely my own based on my experience. I love this product so much. It really controls any shine on my face. Super impressive actually. And the best part is that it works well under your makeup. One of my favorites.
Rita from Los Angeles, CA
Such a great moisturizer and love that it is also sunscreen. Very happy with the light weight feel of this product.
