Most Helpful Positive Review One of the best products on the market for acne!
I've been using this for years and it is great maintenance for acne but it also works as a great spot treatment! For not that bad of skin use a few times a week.. If your face is out of control use it everyday for a week... works wonders! For spot treatment I put it on my troubled spots and sleep with it overnight wake up and zits are dramatically smaller.
This is one of the best products I've ever used for acne!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not a fan
Are use this product every morning before I start my day. It's very nice because it has little beads that exfoliate your skin. It can be overdrying but the beads seem to flake off any dead skin. I am not a huge fan of the scent but it doesn't seem to bother me after a while. It just smells kind of medicinal. I did notice a huge change in my complexion after using this product for about two weeks. But you need to use it regularly for it to work as I have noticed with my own skin. I was gifted this product by proactiv, but all my reviews are honest. I started using it as a spot treatment instead of a mask and that was a little better.

I do not have acne-prone skin, but I do get breakouts during my period. Therefore, I typically do not use this as a full mask but rather as a spot treatment. I use a q-tip to be precise and I actually leave this on overnight! It dries down fairly well and the transfer is minimal. The next morning my acne is less red and irritated, healing seems to speed up as well. Really love this product to directly target zits.

I'm in my early 30's and started getting terrible acne along my jaw and neck. NOTHING would clear it, and I am not used to having acne. After reading reviews I decided to give this a try. No joke, after a few days of use I saw a huge difference. My pimples were shrinking and drying, without drying my skin in general. My chin and neck remain acne free for months now since using this product. I use it 3-4 times a week at night, sometimes sleeping in it. This is the only acne product that has ever worked for me. LOVE it.

This is wonderful, i am in my 50s and still get cystic acne. It works and doesn't dry out my skin, just make sure you moisturize after rinsing off.
lola from Versailles
absolutely my favorite proactive product. My preteen has even started using it for his black heads! A little goes a LONG way.
Britt from Las Vegas
This stuff is amazing. I had this deep stubborn blackhead by my nose for almost about a month that just wouldn't surface no matter what I did. I bought this to see if it would help and after 1 day of having this on the blackhead, it finally started to surface and on day 2 it was practically coming out of my face. I've tried other products on stubborn blackheads in the past but nothings ever worked this good.
Cici from South Carolina
What I love most with this product is the ability to spot treat a blemish, and know that it will likely be gone in the morning!! I don't have acne, but with wearing a 'face mask' now, my skin can be a bit irritated and result in a random blemish. This is a great solution!!!
Got Rid of Black Hairs/Heads on my Nose
Mo from Oakland
I have really sensitive skin, so I only use this mask for 10 min once a week or once every two weeks. I follow up with witch hazel and the rest of my skin care routine. After 1 use my nose was clear. And after a few months I've seen my break outs reduce greatly. It's intense but gets it done.

Use at night & blemishes are gone in the morning.
Great product Buy over & over.

Good mask & great to put a little on blemish coming & gone
Kate from California
If you have acne or are just acne prone trying to prevent, I highly recommend this mask! The smell is awful (that's just the sulfur in it) but if you can get past that then this is definitely for you
AMAZING- go get some now!!
Jess from Blaine, MN
When covid started, I was so frustrated with my skin. I had so much chin acne, which was very deep and painful. I was sure it was caused by the masks. Thankfully, a wonderful lady at ulta told me to use this as a spot treatment and literally, my skin has never looked so good. My pimples reduce in size over night and when I feel a pimple coming on I use this overnight and it's gone! Reduced pimple time by over half! Seriously- go get yourself some!!!
Acne finally gone!
Jay from Houston, Tx
I remember using the mask as a teenager and would dry acne out seemingly overnight. I've been having issues with my skin recently and I used this mask a hand full of times and my acne is gone and redness is gone. I don't use any cleanser or soap on my face and follow this up with a vitamin c serum.
LadyAutumn from Lake Forest, Illinois
Gently exfoliates, evens out my skintone, and helps control my super oily face. The mask really helps to sooth, reduce redness, and shrink the acne lesions/cysts.
Love it!!! ❤️❤️
Nancy from Sacramento, CA
I love this facial mask! It works very good and is extremely effective at clearing my acne. It works great as a spot treatment too. My face has never been clearer. Before, I used to have so much acne on my face that you would think I was a hormonal teenager. Now, I haven't had an acne flare up since I began using this purifying mask from proactive. I will definitely buy again.
I love it!!
anayalee from Oakdale CA
I use it overnight and I love it. Personally for me it works so well. It makes my redness go away and my pimples get smaller. It is expensive but also really worth it
Refresher for my skin!
Jess from Tampa, FL
Use once every couple week; once a week when disciplined. Results seen right away. Smooth skin that glows.
ShaynaB from Utah
I use this as a spot treatment before bed. I wake up to reduced pimple size and no redness. It's my secret weapon. And at 31, I need all the acne weapons I can get.
Audrey from Utah
I used this many years ago with their old model which was AMAZING, after one night my acne would be gone. I suffer with hormonal acne on my cheeks and every 1-2 pimple breakouts around my mouth and sometimes forehead. I have tried SO many products and I always come back to this one. The new formula is the same, smells the same, but for some reason the formula seems slightly different. I apply this thickly to a area where my acne is and leave it on overnight. Yes it smells, but yes it works. usually takes a few times in order for the pimple to completely disappear. This can dry out your skin so be sure to keep your skin hydrated! Even though it is $$ I really do recommend!!
Not so Much!
Ble from Biloxi, MS
It takes away the redness, but doesn't reduce the size of my blemishes at all.
Helps with breakouts!
Lexi from Forney, Tx
I use this to spot treat. It will clear smaller breakout in a day and larger breakouts 2-3 days. Love this mask it's amazing!
Is this real life?
Neverendingnatalie from Southport NC
K so I never really struggled with acne, but this last year I've started experimenting with make up and we'll...now I have it. I've had acne on my chin for months. I grew up using Clinique, because my mother introduced it to me. For two months, no improvement. I then bought mario badescu cleanser and treatment serum. I barely saw an improvement in a month and was very disappointed. So, I knew what proactive was because I don't live under a rock and my brother used to use it, and I was looking for face masks do I said what the heck. The next day my pimples on my chin and pores reduced in size dramatically. They also aren't as red. I use the mask for a half hour or so 2/3 times a week, and put it in as overnight spot treatment normally every night. I now have a treatment serum on the way and I'm so glad I tried proactive.
DNorth from Texas
No joke, this works. As soon as I feel a bump under the skin I dab some on and leave overnight. It won't progress any further!!! If I don't get it quick enough it will create a pimple but won't last even half the time!
Second time buying this. I always buy this!
Meg from Maryland
I use this twice a week at night as a face mask. I feel super clean after using! It truly helps my acne! I got this in my Proactive Plus kit as a small size to try out and now I love it. So I buy the big bottle of it!
My acne is gone!
Have a good day from You will never know 🤐
I put this on pimples and when I wake up it is a lot smaller. After about 3 nights, it's gone. It's great! My only complaint is that it drys out your skin a bit.
AmandaPanda from Albuquerque
I wasn't expecting dramatic changes to my skin. But this product left me surprised! Sometimes I get painful irritated blemishes, and after I started using this I have little no blemish problems. I follow my normal face routine, and I'll use this product every other night before bed. I would definitely recommend this product!
