The Proactiv Solution acne fighting system involves a three-step process to get rid of acne, and you will get the best results from using the products if you follow the instructions exactly. According to the makers of the product, you have to remain consistent with your acne regimen if you are going to gain the best advantages from Proactiv products.
The Proactiv system includes a renewing cleanser, to be used at morning and at night; a Revitalizing Toner, to be applied two times daily along with a sunscreen supplement to prevent sun sensitivity; and a repairing treatment, which also has to be applied two times every day.
You can order the Proactive Plus Deluxe package containing all three products plus oil free moisturizer and daily oil control for as little as $29.95. There is a Plus for Teen Pack that includes the renewing cleanser, the toner, the repair treatment, and a deep cleansing wash as well as an advanced blemish treatment for the same price. Alternatively, you can opt for the renewing cleanser, the toner, and the repair treatment for $19.95.

What I Like About This Product/Company:
- I began to notice visible improvement of my acne in just two weeks time. My skin cleared up dramatically: blackheads started to diminish and I also lost sight of most red pimples. For the following weeks, blemishes disappeared gradually.
- Proactive offers free shipping with all of their packages. You also get a sixty day money back guarantee. If you need customer service, you can get it through the website or by calling the company on a toll free number.
- If you get the basic three step system, you get extras like “The Doctor’s Secret to a Lifetime of Clear Skin,” a travel sized Green Tea Moisturizer, and ActiveMember Benefits offering you exclusive products, prices, and discounts.
What I Don’t Like About This Product/Company:
Proactiv Solutions will improve your acne only if you use it consistently and diligently: Twice a day and every day of your life, really. In other words, your skin gets addicted to it and if you skip at all, your breakouts return.
In addition, the product works pretty well for me for the first few months, but then it stopped being effective. By the fourth month, my skin seemed to get immune to it and acne came back. I stopped using Proactiv and my skin went downhill. I’m not the only one. Quite a few users report their Proactiv worked great at first but after repetitive uses it started to lose efficiency.
Proactiv is definitely a great temporary solution for many adults and teens who would like to cure mild or moderate acne. The price of the packages offered by the company makes the product accessible to anyone. Free shipping is offered too, which means you can get your product at an all time low price. Since you get a sixty day money back guarantee, you risk nothing by trying the products offered by this company. Best of all, you get plenty of free perks when you buy.
However if you have very sensitive skin, I would recommend you using another acne product that’s more gentle like Exposed Skin Care.
