This stuff does not work at all. I used it on a fairly bad breakout, I washed my face and put it on before bed and woke up excited to see what it had done, I was disappointed. Nothing happened at all. It was like I put some white paste on my skin and when I washed it off naturally it didn't change a thing, and on top of that it dried my skin up. Moving on to shock number two. I looked at the ingredients in the refining mask and the ones in my CVS purifying mask (the green mud stuff) It's the same stuff. The only difference is that the proactive doesn't dry up so you can wear it overnight. Save your money and don't wait for shipping just go get some mask form CVS. Very disappointed. Do not buy.
I love it! It works fast!
it works !
I just broke out horribly about two weeks ago. My entire cheek was just a huge acne rash. I used this every day for 4 days straight (applied a very thin layer for 10 minutes every night) and I literally saw a huge difference every single day. It was soothing and so helpful.
Please put moisturizer on right after you wash it off though! It can be very drying. My skin is really used to it, though. Give it a try! :)
My review on overall proactiv:
Cleanser: Face is pretty much addicted. Tried to get off, horrible withdrawals. Back on it now.
Toner: Doesn't feel like it does enough. It just dries out my face.
**NEW lotion**: SUCKS. Burns my skin, irritates, reddens. The old one rocks :) I still have some left. It doesn't burn at all and it makes the acne go away fast.
Give Proactiv a try; and buy it off of eBay or Amazon. It's so much cheaper!
good quick fix to get rid of pimple redness and helps remove pimples fast.
its difficult to wash off in the morning and can leave to irritation if you scrub it off.
4/5 cause it works as a quick fix but it doesnt prevent pimples so dont use on entire face only on pimples.
It's really the only product that works for me, though even this stuff does not compleatly help.
2-3 times a week does not work for me, every other day didn't even work that well. I have to use it everyday. Though I've had the same amount of dryness from the 2 times a week as I have from the everyday.
Though I've not making the product sound that great, I still gave it a 4/5, as it's the best thing I've used so far, and I can't be without it.
Also, people on here complain about the smell, I never thought it was so bad. Kind of nice really.
By the way, get it off ebay or Amazon, you can get it MUCH cheaper, and you don't have to deal with the HORRIBLE Proactiv website. Seriously, stay away from there.
I found this from my mother's Proactiv kit (which did not work for her because her skin was too sensitive) and she said this was the only thing that she felt like it actually helped. So I gave it a try (that's why I'm unsure how much the item costed). It exfoliated, it smelt clean, it dried out already existing acne, and it lasted for a very very long time before it even got close to needing to be replaced. The only complaint is that it did not help control breakouts, it only got rid of what already surfaced. I would definitely recommend giving this a try though, it might work better for you than it did for me. Also, I liked the texture.
