Most Helpful Positive Review Holy grail spot treatment
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 !

I am 18 with oily, acne-prone skin with most of my hormonal acne being concentrated to the lower half of my face. I bought this to treat my extra annoying pimples that surface around that time of the month. I'd heard great things about ProActiv so I was expecting a lot but I saw absolutely no improvement. I gave this two stars only because it didn't make my skin any worse.

Not as great as Spot Me brand
Overpriced and smells like cheap perfume
Earthymoon from Huntsville AL
I have pretty stubborn acne on my chin and jaw line. I've been using the Neutrogena 10% mixed with my lotion for years. Works really well for me. Apparently, the Neutrogena is being discontinued. In a rush I grabbed this. I have used 5% before. I just apply it first and put my lotion on top.
When I opened the box, I was flabbergasted at how small the tube was. As soon as I took off the lid I smelled expired white floral Avon perfume from the 60s.
Hard pass. Don't waste your money. There are other 5% creams without the fragrance and at a better cost.
Works really quick!
Ry from Arkansas
I put it on acne spots before bed and the next morning the swelling and redness is gone! It doesn't immediately make the pimple go away, but it does more than the average blemish cream. I think it's a good buy!
Saved my life on date night :)
Pam from Salem, NH
This product did exactly what it said it would. It didn't overly dry out the spot either. First day it took almost all the red away so the pimple wasn't so noticeable. Next day it was even less and the third morning it was totally gone!
This type of pimple usually last at least a week then peels. Not with this product.
Great product for spot treatment, would repurchase
Nicole from IN
It makes a noticeable difference in 8 to 24 hours and helps my breakouts completely disappear in 1 to 5 days. It varies based on the size of the breakout and whether or not I picked it. Leaves no acne scars
BB from Alexandria, LA
I use the product in the morning and at night, and you will notice a difference after the first use.
Best spot treatment to dry up and erase acne
Spirit_Chick from Raleigh, NC
This product is the BEST for my skin! Benzoyl Peroxide is the only ingredient that clears up my breakouts. I use it after cleansing and toning during my normal routine. If I'm having a breakout I like to add a thin layer before bed and after maybe 2 nights I'm clear again!
Amanda from Michigan
I used this product 4 times on a couple of spots on my face and it gave my entire face a chemical burn. My face has been red, dry, raw, peeling, and covered in hives for the past several days after use. It's extremely painful. I've had to purchase a bunch more expensive products to soothe my chemical burn and ease my pain. My acne is also still there. The WORST product I've ever used on my face in my life!
Best spot treatment I've tried
KALENE from Temecula, CA
Clears up everything in a few days, even in one day my pimples will shrink and begin to heal. I've tried quite a few spot treatments, mainly mid to high end and this one beats them all. It's all about what your skin needs and my skin love's this! Im happy i finally found something that heals my pimples. This stuff also lasts a while as well. It does stain pillow cases and sheets, I learned that the hard way but it's still worth it.
One of my favorite things
Twinmomma from Illinois
This product is wonderful! It's my second tube and won't be my last. One tube lasts a long time too. I never thought in my middle 30's I'd still be dealing with acne, but unfortunately I have to. This tube helps get rid of acne faster than anything else I've tried.
Kills the Zit
AngelaSL from Poplar Bluff, Missouri
I had a break out on my jawline. I am an older woman and don't always expect zits, but there they were. I picked up this proactive product, which has stronger active ingredients. I carefully rubbed it on each zit after washing my face with proactive face wash. Did it once in the morning and before bedtime. In two days, the zits had begun to disappear. This isn't for everyday use, for me, but it sure took care of the pop ups quickly!
Yessi from Santa Paula Ca
Worked great for me !!
my blemishes disappeared overnight Or appeared smaller
Blemishes gone for a teen!!
Princess from Hartselle
I highly recommend for all teens that want people to see you and not whats on your face. The beauty inside shineing on the ourside!!😇
Chrissy from NJ
Going to be completely honest, I really really liked this at first. I bought one tube and used it up completely because it actually really helped to clear my acne. So naturally I bought a second tube but it did nothing. I was still using it the same way as before and it wasn't doing anything for my skin. It didn't make my skin worse or anything, but it was just kinda pointless because I didn't see that it was doing anything helpful. Not sure if it was just a bad one or what but I ended up giving it to my mom. Would be 2 stars but at first it did work for me so hopefully it works for you if you buy it. Also it's just pretty expensive so I would probably never repurchase this.
Lydia from San Diego
I used proactiv in my teens and it really helped my skin. I have pretty good skin now as an adult but from time to time I do get a pimple or small bumps on my skin. I was using a different benzoyl peroxide proactiv spot treatment but I saw this. I don't know if it's the same with a different packaging but it works just as great if not better. Bumps go away after a couple uses

I'm not really a Proactiv fan (most of their products dry my skin) but I started getting cystic acne here and there and I was desperate to find a product that could penetrate the surface of my skin and fix whatever was going on deep in my pores. THIS PRODUCT WORKS FAST! If I catch it quick enough, it's fixed overnight! Talk about being "proactiv".
Colleen from Dayton
It did not help my breakouts at all.
saved my skin!!
luna from washington
i've had acne for years, and i've tried a TON of products to try to get rid of it. but this has been the only thing that's truly worked for me & i've never been happier. my skin is finally clear & looks so nice!! if i have a pimple & apply this cream at night, the pimple is already shrunken & less red by morning. the only bad thing is that it's drying and can leave flaky dry patches on your skin if you're not careful. i use the first aid beauty ultra repair cream morning and night & then i use the youth to the people superberry hydrate + glow dream mask at night only. thank you for reading my review!! i hope this helps other people :)
Love it from Arlington Va
You have to be consistent putting it on problem areas of your face and this will work amazing. I use it on my blemishes that pop up and this helps take care of them within a day or two. Even pimples from pms go away with this product. I always keep some and it's very handy to have. I have not tried their other acne spot treatment but this one is seriously amazing.
Nah. Smells nice.
Ble from Biloxi, MS
Doesn't really do much of anything on my breakouts. It does have a very nice scent though.
Didn't really work for me
Sadie from Georgia
Well it didn't work for my skin as I hoped it would but it did kinda help get rid of some blemishes. It dried up my skin and peeled off which was kinda of a pain.
Does exactly what it says it is
Kate from 07843
I tried dermalogica one that was similar and had very little results. Then I gave this a shot and within a day saw a noticeable difference. Try this!
Made my face bright red
Megan from South Dakota
I wanted to love this product and I've used Proactiv in the past, but this just did not work for me. The whole area where I applied this on my face just turned bright red. I used it after washing my face at night to help with some new break outs, but woke up to a giant red circle on my face where I had rubbed the product in. I was lucky enough not to break out in more zits, but something in this product made my face very irritated.
RJ from Dayton
Great for taking blemishes. Within a day I noticed it shrink and flatten
