Apply to dampened skin, leave on for 10 minutes and rinse off with warm water. Can be used up to two to three times a week. If going outside, use an SPF 15 product or higher. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application use.

Tip: Can be used as an overnight spot treatment. Dab onto affected area and leave on overnight. In the morning, rinse off with warm water. Can be used up to three times a week.

Precautions: For external use only. When using this product skin irritation and dryness is likely to occur if you use another topical acne medication at the same time. If irritation occurs, only use one topical acne medication at a time. Apply only to areas with acne. Do not use on broken skin or large areas of the skin. Avoid unnecessary sun exposure and use a sunscreen. Avoid contact with the eyes. If contact occurs, rinse eyes thoroughly with water. Stop use and ask a doctor if irritation becomes severe. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.

Sensitivity Test for a New User: Apply product sparingly to one or two small affected areas during the first three days. If no discomfort occurs, follow the directions stated below.

Sensitivity Test: As a mask: apply to dampened skin, leave on for 10 minutes and rinse off with warm water. Can be used up to two or three times a week. If going outside, use an SPF 15 product or higher. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application use. Can be used as an overnight spot treatment. 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.

            I used this in high school. Bought it during the sale and I still love it. Makes your face feeling so soft and did help clear up my mild acne.

              Comments about Proactiv Skin Purifying Mask:

              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!!

                Comments about Proactiv Skin Purifying Mask:

                At the first sign of a breakout, dab a bit of this mask on the spot and it is gone the next day. Contains sulfer so some may be bothered by the smell, but it doesn't bother me. It is drying on my skin so you have to use according to your skin type. I've used once as an all-over facial mask just for a medicinal-type treatment, but applied very sparingly. Do not date leave on linger than advised. Pro-active products are very drying to my combination skin.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Very happy with delivery.

                  How long do you leave it on? Do you put it all over face or only on affected areas?

                    A:

                    You can use this product as a mask or as an overnight spot treatment for affected areas. As a mask, apply to wet skin, leave on for 10 minutes and then rinse off with warm water. For the overnight treatment, dab onto the affected area only and leave on overnight. In the morning, rinse this off with warm water. This can be used 2- 3 times a week!
