BE CAREFUL USING THIS PRODUCT. The instructions on the bottle are so misleading! It says to apply a 'layer' which is really not a good idea if you have dry or sensitive skin. It does however say to test it before use which is a really important thing to do because this product can leave your skin incredibly dry and irritated. I also use the proactiv cleanser which also contains benzoyl peroxide but the repairing lotion seems a lot harsher on the skin. Every so often for about a week I applied really small amounts to blemishes and it worked very well - but I then stupidly decided to apply a 'layer' to an area of my face, around my chin. The proactiv pamphlet says the repairing lotion should be applied to any area to 'PREVENT' so this is what i did. My skin became INCREDIBLY dry. For about a week, every morning I would apply layers and layers of moisturizer but no matter how much i put on my skin was still dry. I had never seen it so dry before in my life - it was flaky, kind of cracked in some areas so the skin around my chin was almost in sections. I had to start using a really thick clinique moisturizer but i had to put so much on that the dry skin kind of soaked it up so that my skin was kind of left with the yellow tint.
There are also quite a few youtube videos about this product where they say you can just SLATHER on the repairing lotion and leave it overnight. Really not a good idea.
Although its extremely harsh, it does work quite well for me when used in very small amounts so i would still reccommend it. However, there are other products out there that work just as well, such as tea tree oil, which will not leave you with incredibly dry skin.
