      Comments about ProactivMD Essentials System Value Set:

      I bought this for my high school age son who had minimal break outs, but enough to want some relief. I had trusted the Proactiv name (original product) when I was younger, so thought this would be good for him to try. Within a couple of days, following the directions to a tee, his skin began burning, peeling and looked as if it had a raised red rash all over. He was sent to the nurse at school because his teacher didn't believe he wasn't having some horrible allergic reaction. It took almost a week of cutting out the product completely for his face to go back to normal. I would proceed with great caution before trying this product. It's way too strong for average use. I've since seen horrible reviews all over. I wish I'd researched more before buying. Shame on me!

      Face wash is too rough

      By Kris

      from Portland, OR

      Comments about ProactivMD Essentials System Value Set:

      I was given this kit free through influencer and it is good however it is simply to rough for people who don't have severe acne. I only get break outs here and there. I started using the kit for about 4 days and the face wash caused my skin to be literally raw under my wyes. My skin burns and is slightly red in areas just because the face wash is to much for my skin. Im going to try using it only once a week and see if that helps because the product does work its just simply to harsh. However i love the spot treatment its gets rid of pimples by the next day and the sunscreen is awesome to put on before applying make up

      No change, made my skin textured

      By Bella

      from Rossford, Oh

      Comments about ProactivMD Essentials System Value Set:

      For about a week my skin was breaking out around my mouth and on one of temples and on my forehead. This is unusual to me to get acne on my forehead. I have super soft skin, where I don't have acne. When I used this stuff it dried out my eyelids and face. I scheduled an appointment for a derm, using a prescription now and see good results without irritating my skin. Save your money because I told my dermatologist I was using this and I thought her eyes were gonna fall out of her head. She said stay away from harsh scrubs and the face wash is literally a scrub, which I didn't know until purchase

      Comments about ProactivMD Essentials System Value Set:

      This stuff was gentle to use, but itches and burns came along just after use. Beware - contains fragrance! Will not be using ever again.

                Comments about ProactivMD Essentials System Value Set:

                I used the original formula when I was in high school, and it worked great, so when my acne returned as an adult, I didn't think for a second to use this again. I was excited about this because of the reviews and the strength of the product. I used as directed and my skin is significantly worse than before. I have oily skin, so I thought it was great that my skin was drying and I didn't have the constant battle through the day. I haven't pinpoint which product did the damage, but I believe the night gel caused my skin to hurt and burn so bad I was scared to wash my face in general because of the pain. It burned the skin around my eyes and mouth (I am African American) am my face is so dry and ashy any amount of oil or moisturizer doesn't help. Very dis​appointed now and terrified Ill have dark circles around my eyes and lining my lips because of this product. Purchase at your own risk.
