I tried this to help with my occasional breakouts. It did work to help get rid of pimples but it really dried out my skin and left it with little bumps everywhere. I think there are better products on the market for pimple control. This would be better as a spot treatment then an all over face wash.

I gave the proactiv skin care system a go and found this cleanser extremely drying on my skin, yes it cleared up my pimples but it also gave me red, itchy skin, and whilst using it my skin became extremely sensitive.
Tips: Don't use this if you have sensitive skin
I have a problematic skin type and find that often I break out and get a lot of congestion underneath the skin. I used proactive for about 6 months, but found that more than anything it just absolutely stripped my skin. Although my pimples seemed to somewhat clear up, the rest of my skin became dry and scaly and incredibly irritable. I find now that I am a beauty therapist and regularly learning more and more about skincare that these products are just way too harsh on the skin.
Last year my acne had gotten really bad so I decided to give proactiv a try since nothing else was working, and now my skin is spotless and I've no really clear skin since I've started using it. I have recomended his to my friends and they love it and use it to this day
Tips: I suggest if your using a flannel/face cloth you should use a white one cause from previous experience this cleanser contains benzol peroxide and does stain.
I had a really bad acne about few years ago, and Proactive was advertised everywhere. So I caved in and bought the starter set. After 2days of use, my skin flare up and my cystic acne went ballistic. Turns out I'm allergic to one of the main ingredients. From then on, I stopped using Proactive.
Since I suffer from mild break outs I thought I would give it a try. Did not help my break outs at all, in fact made them worse. Initially I used this product once a day, tried to use twice but would be too harsh on my skin and dry it out completely.
this is a great cleanser, i have oily sensitive skin and it cleared up the oilynes brang my skins ph back down to normal its the life but too much for me to afford all the time but still buy when i can
I was excited to try this but unfortunately it stung my skin so bad and dried it out big time. I had to stop using it. I see a lot of mixed reviews so I know it works for some people just not us sensitive skin girls perhaps.
So i got the chance to use this product off a close friend. She brought the bundle over the phone, she did think it was an ok product for her, not as good as other products as it does tend to sting and dry out her skin. I managed to give a test and it didnt work for me either, giving me dry skin and making my skin break out. maybe better for skin types that are not sensitive
I used this in the months leading up to my wedding to ensure I didn't have any blemishes on my big day.
The product did work in that my skin was blemish free for my wedding & my husband thought it had reduced the redness in my skin. I do however have quite dry, sensitive skin so I found using it twice a day was too much for me, as was using all 3 steps so I only used the cleanser & moisturiser. I found that if I used the toner as well my skin would feel dry & tight.
I also didn't like the smell of the chemicals & would prefer to use something more natural on my skin. Also I didn't like the ordering system & prefer to buy my products in store.
It is quite expensive so I wouldn't use it all the time but if I had another special event & needed some extra special care for my skin I may consider using it as it did improve the appearance of my skin.
