I've tried this before and it worked amazing but I had to stop since we couldn't afford the jumbo pack and so I've just started using it again now because I'm sick of wasting so much money on products my skin gets used to in about a couple of weeks, tried every product that I could use on my skin and now I'm really looking forward to using it again, I want my old self back and this will really help with my confidence To the team and researchers thankyou so much for making this product accessible everywhere and I look forward to working with you in the future as well as many other people do xx :]

Proactiv was the best thing I ever used for my skin! I literally saw results in DAYS not weeks! I had far less new breakouts, my old ones healed far better and my pores were smaller. I stopped using it and my old skin problems came back but I will definitely be buying again!

I've had pimples all my life. and tried everything out there. I then tried Proactiv and within 4 weeks I could see a big difference, and now I'm pimple free, just scars that are slowly going away too. Proactiv is the best ever. I recommend it to everyone :)

I got Proactiv about two year ago, it works so well. I was amaze by how it clear up all the pimples on my skin. Then I stop using it now for probably 6 months and change to use Garnier but it don't work as well as Proactiv. Now think i really should go back to Proactiv again

Hi my name is Matt. I'm from Australia and I'm 16. I love Proactiv! I've currently been using it for about 3 weeks now and my skin is so much clearer. I only have pimple scars now and Proactiv is slowly getting rid of them. The products I got were the 3 Step System and it came with the Oil Free Moisture. I really like how it came with the small book about how to get clearer skin. I think that is kinda the reason why Proactiv works. It is not just the products that get rid of the pimples, its the excitement, motivation and lifestyle...keeping you motivated to get rid of pimples with their innovative products! Im so glad my mum bought Proactiv for me and I would like to thank Proactiv and the makers of this product for helping me get clearer skin and help get my confidence back! :)

I had suffered with...acne and to make it worse I used to cover my skin in thick oily foundation to hide it. After just one week of using this pack and cutting out my makeup routine I had seen results. I still continue to use Proactiv a year after I first tried it because it makes my skin feel light and soft. I recommend this product to anyone

I used to use Proactiv but stopped because of cost and didn't see major improvement. But thought i'd try again and i was shocked at the size of the bottles now. It's half the size, but has the price been halved. Nope, still as expensive as ever, so i think i might just cancel my order and go buy benzoyl peroxide products from the chemist instead.
The cleanser is great, after a week, i've noticed a difference already. The repair lotion is good. But the daily oil control does not do a thing for me. But the cost including the postage is just ridiculous. I ordered something bigger, more expensive online and the postage was half the price of Proactiv, and it arrived the very next day and it was sent from QLD. Proactiv takes about a week to arrive.
Products good, just don't think it justifies the price.
GUTHY-RENKER RESPONSE: Hi JB, thank you for your feedback. Just so you know, we have actually reduced the price of Proactiv. Our 60 day sized bottle used to cost $69.90, now we have halved the size of the bottles and reduced the price to $29.95. We have also dropped the P&H on the entry System from $12.95 to $9.95. This is in an effort to make Proactiv more accessible to everyone.
Best product ever!! I've been using proactive for eight years now and it has no doubt changed my life! It originally took a good two - three months before it really started working for me but it did work!! and now I rearly ever break out. In my opinion - it's worth every cent. I know alot of people seem to get put off by the price, but seriously... What's $100 (estimate) every three months??? Would you rather choose to save yourself a bit of money or have a face covered in pimples??? Exactly. Just give it a chance!!!!! I live by it. Thankyou to everyone at Proactiv! You guys are the best!!! MWWA!!! XOXOX =)

Hey, I'm 16 and I love this product! I don't understand when people say that there skin is dry after using Proactiv? I think it does a lot less than other brands. All skin products that are designed to remove redness and pimples are going to make you skin dry. But I think Proactiv does a great job of minimizing this! :) If anyone is experiencing dryness after using Proactiv, make sure you are doing all the steps correctly and use moisturizer after using it! I use the green tea stuff. But any will do. :)
February 23, 2013
Hi, im 16 and i didn't really like this product much, it really dried out my skin and even though it got rid of the redness my pimples gave off, it did it so quickly i felt my skin didn't have much time to repair, and plus ive stopped using it and now the redness has come back, I much prefer to go to the salon and get facials every month and use the good quality stuff, because it has been working incredibly! thanks
GUTHY RENKER RESPONSE: Hi Kaitlyn, Great to hear that Proactiv reduced the redness so quickly. If you have more sensitive skin and are prone to dryness you could try using our Deep Cleansing Wash as your night time cleanser - it contains Salicylic Acid rather than Benzoyl Peroxide and is a gentler solution. Also, we recommend that people always use a moisturiser to hydrate skin and help prevent dryness – our Green Tea Moisturiser is great at keeping skin refreshed whilst keeping pores unclogged. Daily maintenance is the key to helping prevent future breakouts and keeping skin hydrated. And remember - if you’re still unhappy after using any Proactiv products you can return them within 60 days for a full refund (less postage & handling). You can find the Deep Cleansing Wash and Green Tea Moisturiser on our website.

This really worked for me, all my zits are gone.

I really love this system; it has helped me so much, and my skin feels wonderful after I use it. I would definitely recommend a moisturizer, for people who have dry skin, but overall, Proactiv is a vital part of my daily routine.
Proactiv evens out my skin tone, smooths my complexion, dims redness, and leaves my face feeling super clean, healthy and refreshed.
All together, I just love using it; I would recommend it to anyone who wants clear skin, and an extra boost of confidence!

Up until last week, I was washing my face with a regular bar of soap... (terrible, I know!) My face was breaking out pretty badly! In the past I had tried a lot of different face cleansers and none of them helped at all, in fact, I think they made my skin worse. I finally decided to give Proactiv a go, and all I can say is... WOW! I've only been using it for a week and already noticed the biggest difference! Typically I have combination/slightly oily skin and I have noticed that Proactiv is a little bit drying on my skin, but nothing a little bit more moisturiser won't fix, and I guess my skin is still adjusting to the drastic change. But all in all, I am extremely happy with the results. Thank you Proactiv! You are my life changer :)

I"ve had trouble with acne since the age of 11, I"m now 17 and I started using this when I was 16, I"ve tried everything, hormone pills, specialist creams, every single kind of wash you could think of! but I decided "hmm, maybe I should give it a go!" so I purchased it, and it"s the most amazing product I have ever used! Thanks Proactiv for being the most amazing thing in the world! :D

I used this product about 3.5 yrs ago before I became pregnant. My doctors weren't too sure about using it while I was pregnant so I stopped & am about to purchase the 3 step system again as my skin is breaking out (still at my age!) I am hoping this product will still work for me & quickly restores my skin to a break-out free zone once again. People commented on my skin when I used it previously so I look forward to having the same results this time round. Yes I am still breastfeeding my baby girl who has just turned 2 ... I look forward to my delivery arriving soon!
GUTHY-RENKER RESPONSE: Hi Christine, thank you for your feedback and we are glad that to hear that you had such a great experience with Proactiv! Since you are still breastfeeding, we suggest that you consult your healthcare professional before using Proactiv.

This is actually a glowing compliment! Your product is AMAZING!
My problems involved quite oily skin from my shoulders up, and included inflamed follicles and random fully developed pimples, mostly on the most visible part of my body of course, my forehead (why do pimples do this?!?) and also around the back of my neck and around my scalp. Enter late night infomercials by celebrity endorsers! Well, to be honest I was wholly skeptical of the testimonials being true, and just thought your company had a really good marketing budget to pay all these celebrities. But then thought, "why not give it a go cos I have nothing to lose but a few $$$!" So I ordered an introductory pack.
Well it arrived and again I skeptically proceeded with the thought that it would YET again be another product that was all hype and no substance, so to speak. I COULDN'T HAVE BEEN ANY MORE WRONG!!! WOW, your product is AMAZING!!! After two weeks my skin was COMPLETELY CLEAR!!! I seriously can't believe it, and I can honestly say I can't remember my skin being this clear and smooth and good. I just like giving credit where credit's due, and I am completely sincere in saying I want nothing in return for writing this, other than I can't express how thankful I am! I am now 40 years old and have been battling bad skin for more than half my life, and Proactiv has solved this problem in the space of a fortnight. Even my skin itself is a lot less oily and feels fantastic! Yes, there is the issue of being careful not to rub any of the stage 3 solution on coloured materials when it is on as it contains peroxide, but that is a minor issue for me compared to the amazing change Proactiv has made in the confidence in my appearance.
On top of that, your customer service is fantastic! I have talked to one of your customer service officers regarding the first order that was lost by Australia Post, and she was very friendly and helpful to a fault. This is VERY RARE for a lot of companies these days. So, thank you so much for being a company that sells and promotes a product that actually works as advertised! I'll definitely be recommending it to any friends or family with skin problems.

Proactiv has been a great experience for me. I absoulty love the products. I never break out anymore other than the occasional breakout once every 2 months but when i do its not even a big deal anymore. Before , every time i would breakout i would cry and would hate to look at my self in the mirror because i would see all these other pimples and think to myself "great another pimple to add to my skin" where as now i dont see any other pimples and i dont really care. The only downfall of proactiv is that it does dry out your skin a little bit but it isnt red its just a little bit flaky so i just stick to a cleaser and moisturiser (oil free) for seven days and then after a week it goes away! The next thing to fix on my skin is some of my pimple scars and dark spots but i am thinking about investing in the brighting serum because i read it in the brocure ,(that comes with the products )that it is useful for pimple scars. Thankyou proactiv for giving me my confidence back i am almost on my way to perfect ,clear and healthy skin and i cant wait to see the final results! :)

i just want to say these products saved my skin, now i dont have ANY pimples on my entire face, it completely saved me and helped me become more confident :)) thank you so much
July 21, 2011
About a year ago my skin started breaking out badly, Id have quite a few new pimples everyday and my confidence really took a hit. I stopped seeing friends and wanting to go out because I was scared people would see my spots and not me.
I tried everything, even completely natural products, and nothing worked. I have incredibly sensitive skin, even the natural soaps were too harsh on my skin and made it a lot worse. Then I saw the adverts for Proactiv. I dont usually believe in any wonder products because nothing ever worked for my skin, but this time I gave in and bought the three-step system. In the first few weeks of using, my skin was really dry, but not painful, and now, after three months, my skin is clear. Now I wake up in the morning and I dont have any new spots whatsoever... I may get one spot every few weeks, and Proactiv clears it up within a few days anyway.
So to anyone thats not sure about whether or not to start using Proactiv, just do it! Its the best decision Ive made to clear up my skin.
I started to use this and it was working great for me. then it started to burn my skin,leave it dry,red,and sore to touch. so i stoped useing it for about a week. tried the product again and did the same thing. such a dissapointment.
it helps with the red-ness, i still get the occasional pimple, but it dries your skin out so bad. like literally my skin peals like i have been sunburnt. maybe its just not right for my skin.
GUTHY-RENKER RESPONSE: Hi Kelsey, if you're experiencing redness, you may be sensitive to Benzoyl Peroxide. We recommend following these steps:
• Stop using the Proactiv products for 2 days - if the skin redness improves, start using Proactiv again.
• Use soap and Proactiv Tone - Step 2 daily.
• Use Repair - Step 3 twice per week at night to help your skin gradually get used to the Benzoyl Peroxide.
• As your skin improves, increase the number of nights you apply Proactiv Repair - Step 3.
• If the condition of your skin gets worse, and redness increases, stop using Proactiv immediately and consult a healthcare professional.
OMG ....... AMAZING....
THE ONLY PRODUCT THAT HAS ACTUALLY WORKED FOR ME
Tiny bottles, but will last a good month - for me two coz I forget to use it some nights : )
Works wonders - been using it for a while now and I don't get any more pimples or redness. Would recommend the oil free moisturizer for those dry skins...
I started using this product about 3 and half weeks ago. I had tried everything before using this product and this is the only thing that has worked. I get the occassional pimple, but i think thats's just because of my age.
I love proactiv, it leaves my face feeling so clean and fresh!
It has really made a change to my face.
I have been using Pro-Activ for about 4years going onto 5yrs and its the only product I can use. I love it alot and cant go without it.
Some people need to understand that miracles dont happen overnight.When I first started using this product, my face was so dry but I used the moisturiser for it. I continued with the product and later the results were just amazing.
I have been using Proactiv since 2002 and it has become the foundation of my daily skin care routine. I was a sophmore in high school and I saw a Proactiv advertisment in one of my magazines I received each month. I begged my mom to let me try the Proactiv three step system and see if it would help my skin. Needless to say after 9 years Proactiv has controlled my blemishes and kept my skin beautiful. Now, I would be lying if I said I only use Proactiv for all my skin care needs. I do use two other brands for my eye serum, skin brightening serum, and weekly pore treatment. However, I am looking forward to adding the Proactiv Oil Free Moisture with SPF 15 into my daily routine. Thank you Proactiv!!!
I can believe all the people complaining. Go to any doctor and they will say that if benzoyl peroxide doesn't peel your skin then it is not strong enough. After all benzoyl peroxide is a peeling agent. Works great for me btw!
