I bought this to try it out and I didn't have a moisturiser at the time. I had really high hopes given Proactiv's reputation but was really disappointed. I have oily skin and everyone recommends to use oil free moisturisers. So when I bought this one I had really high expectations. Surprisingly, it left my skin feeling oily well after applying and every time I've used it it caused tiny whitehead pimples on my cheeks, chin and forehead. At first I didn't attribute it to the moisturiser but after continued use it became clear that it was the cause so I stopped using it. Last night I thought I'd give it another go and the today woke up with the familiar whitehead break outs. Ill be going home and throwing it in the bin. I'm glad that I didn't jump on the Proactiv bandwagon and have definitely crossed that brand off my list.
I have searched far and wide for a day moisturiser with spf that is suited for my skin. After years of breakouts caused by many moisturisers and products, I don't understand why i totally forgot proactiv spf.
I will mention though that this product is really suited for OILY acneic skin. If you have dry skin, this won't work for you. Often people will review a product negatively when it wasn't meant for your skin type to begin with thus, misrepresenting the product.
My skin: acne prone, oily all over, sensitive, dark brown skin tone.
don't contain: petrolatum, mineral oil, pure glycerin, fragrance and parabens.
controls oil with Nylon-12 and Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate
blended sunblock (contains physical and chemical spf combo)
no white cast but your skin is left with a better looking complexion somehow, i love that.
easily available in stores (as it wasn't previously)
SPF 15 which if any higher, i noticed i tend to break out. the higher the spf the oilier according to skin experts. plus i have dark skin naturally so i really do not need higher spf.
NO BREAKOUTS, NO CLOGS, NO DRYNESS, NO REDNESS, NO IRRITATION.
available in stores in 50ml only. however, can be purchased online and/or on ebay for a bigger size.

I really like this moisturizer. It doesn't leave me greasy or cause me to break out. It's really the best moisturizer with SPF I've ever used. I only wish it didn't cost $40.00 dollars! I keep using it though, because it works.
Proactive is worthless
I love it and for a proactive product it protects from the sun and moisterize at the same time
I used the whole line of Proactiv, and this every once and a while. It made no difference whatsoever. It was just another moisturizer. I have combo. skin. Oily everywhere except cheeks. This didn't help me at all, it was basically a gentle sunscreen.
I would not go a day without using this moisturizer. I have tried literally a hundred other moisturizers from all kinds of different lines and stores, but I always come back to this. I always get compliments on my skin when I use the Oil Free Moisture and the SPF is a bonus. Plus it doesn't leave a heavy smell on your skin. I will NEVER USE ANYTHING ELSE!
I loved it, and have always tried to use a spf moisturizer, I wish it were sold in Walmart, so it might be more affordable.
it didnt work for me. i had dry skin and i put this on and it made my skin oily and the dryness didnt subside. waste of money/time.
