Disappointing
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.

FINALLY
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. PROS: - very light - dries matte - oil free - 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. CONS: - expensive - available in stores in 50ml only. however, can be purchased online and/or on ebay for a bigger size. Skin care routine: DAY 1. wash with dermasukin oil balancing wash 2. apply proactiv SPF Night 1. wash with dermasukin oil balancing wash 2. apply clinique dramatically different GEL OR alternate with clindamycin phosphate lotion on some nights OR apply both. 3. tazorac 0.1% Products that broke me out: - neutrogena clear spf 30 (didnt cause acne but caused major rash on my neck and face due to the cinnamon complex ingredient in it) - neutrogena liquid fluid spf 50 - neutrogena ultra sheer spf 50 - neutrogena oil free moisturiser combination skin - neutrogena acne wash salicylic 2% - Sunsense Moisturising Face SPF 50 - Ego oil free matte moisturiser - Mario badescu oil free moisturiser - La Roche Posay Effaclar Gel cleanser (didn't break me out but was way too harsh for my skin. extreme dryness) - Skinstitut producs: gentle cleanser, lactic cleanser, oily skin moisturiser, spf 50, even blend serum.

Expensive But Good
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.

not into it
I love all proactive products but this one. It's greasy, and it inflamed my acne (SPF sensitivity.)

Pros:

Its so easy and affective why would you use the entire treatment systems.I used this combined with the green tea moisterizer and the first day i used it, it visibly reduced the pimples on myn face back and chest. It was 102 degrees outside and i put it on like an hour before i went swimming. I went swimming and didnt have any other sunscreen on, i was in the pool for at leat an hour and it protected the skin...no sunburn.

Cons:

The only issue i have is its kind of hard to rub in and it smells like sunscreen.

I love it and for a proactive product it protects from the sun and moisterize at the same time

Pros:

+Extra moisture for people with dry skin.

Cons:

+Smells like Sunscreen

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.

Pros:

I LOVE this moisturizer! I'm 24 and don't use Proactiv, (I used to) but I need the moisturizer. When I lost my bottle, after 2 weeks my skin felt flaky, blotchy, was full of zits and not pretty. You don't need the whole line of products, just this!

Cons:

A little expensive for the size, hard to find! You cannot buy this on its own, which is a bummer since it's the only part of the 'system' that I use.

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!

Pros:

Loved it when I could buy it on the shopping channel,I useually got it with the show stopper.

Cons:

They quit offering it for sale, and the price on it's own is rediculous, I just checked today they have it but it was going to cost me $42.00 plus tax for 1 bottle.

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.
