This product is great! The Repairing Lotion is the only Proactive Product that I use. I use it in conjunction with Acne Free (a drugstore brand) benzoyl peroxide cleanser and Clean and Clear astringent (in the pink bottle) every night and I am completely blemish-free! In the morning I use a Noxema cleanser and a moisturizing Olay facial lotion. However, I really believe that the Proactive lotion is really what cleared my skin up, since I've been using all the products forever, but I just started using the Proactive lotion about 6 months ago. And my skin has just started completely clearing up in the last couple months! And believe me, having clear skin is a BIG relief, coming from someone who has had bad acne ever since she hit puberty! So, I definitely recommend this lotion to anyone who is looking to clear their skin up. I hope it works as well for you all as it did for me!!

I don't understand all the negative reviews. I love this stuff. I've had acne on and off since I was 13, and I've taken two courses of Accutane (in my teens and very early 20s). While I rarely get cystic acne or pimples now in my late 30s, I did have scores of blackheads on my nose and chin that just wouldn't budge. I'd also been diagnosed with mild rosacea in the last few years, mostly in my t-zone. So my dermatologist of 19 years goes off my insurance plan and I move 50 miles south of his office. What's a girl to do? I did a little research and found that some rosacea sufferers found that Pro Activ worked. I forked over $19.99 for the starter kit which included a small tube of Refining Mask, and after nearly 2 weeks, my skin looks incredible. The rough skin on my nose and chin, the slight orange peel look and the blackheads are disappearing. Plus I can get reimbursed through my healthcare flex spending plan.My trick to avoid the dryness that everyone complains about? I don't use the Repairing Lotion all over my face, only on the hot spots, the same way I used Rx Brevoxyl all these years. So I use it all over my nose, part of my cheeks and my chin, places I would normally get acne. Given the price, this is a great anti-aging, anti-acne and anti-rosacea treatment, and I don't have to book an appointment then pay $$$ out of pocket.

This was okay. It leaves my skin soft and clear(this was when I first started to use it). However, after a year it made my skin super oily and greasy. And dry. sigh

The repairing lotion is wonderful. Make sure you let the Proactiv toner dry completely before applying the repairing lotion. This lotion is extremely silky and applies very easily...it also washes off of your fingers just by rinsing with water. Though it may feel like a moisturizer, it is not one. Make sure after you apply the lotion, you also apply either the green tea moisturizer or the oil free moisturizer to brighten the skin and to prevent dryness.The repairing lotion has a cool, refreshing feel to it...I wouldnt use the 3 step system without it : )

Works great without completely drying my skin out. Like all Pro Activ products I truly appreciate that they contain botanicals to help soothe the skin while treating the acne. This product does contain Benzoyl Peroxide (2.5% I believe) so watch out for bleaching in towels and clothes, and wear sunscreen. Works great for me!

I have been using Proactiv for almost 5 years now and still love it. This was the only acne system that didn't leave my face burning or extra dry. My skin actuallly was left feeling healthier. I usually scar really easily from my pimples but Proactiv actually helped with healing my skin as well-- scars disappear quicker than before. I get a lot of comments about how clear my skin is-- even from strangers! People just assume that I'm just born that way-- NOPE! I attribute it to my Precious Proactiv!!As for value-- this definitely is the best value- I find that my Proactiv actually lasts a little longer than 2 months-- compared to many of the other systems that I've tried from boutiques/online, this is definitely a good value.

The repair lotion is the finishing touch to keeping your acne away. I love the 3 step system it really works!!!!Proactive Solutions is the best product I have ever used for my acne. I have taken everything you can possible imagine to control my acne and the only thing that has worked for me is Proactive. Not only did it banish my acne within 4 days of using it, I was given the bonus of glowing smooth skin. It won't dry your skin like other acne products and makes your skin feel really clean.

I tried this as a teenager and didn't truly appreciate it. Well, I got into my twenties and finally realized I had to tackle the problem I tried it again and have never let it go. You have to wash your face with the cleanser and you have to use the toner and you have to apply the lotion; if you are not doing that in those steps everyday then you cannot truly see the magic it can perform and believe me, it's fantastic! Please don't start out washing your face more than once a day, you're tempted I totally know, but that is when the dryness starts and you get discouraged. The price...I got used to it because I figure my face is worth it. I might have too much coffee or eat something crappy and I will still get a brave pimple or two, but it goes away in a day or so and the most astonishing thing is how well and quickly my skin heals nowadays. Even the scars I had on my cheeks are slowly becoming less noticeable. I pair this with Bare Escentuals and I'm set.UPDATE 9/2/09: I got brave and experimented with AcneFree, which is half the price and works just as well.

I am a Proactiv success story! Acne has been a problem throughout my mother's side of the family, and was unfortunately passed on to me. My freshman year of high school, I had a few blemishes here and there, and tried Proactiv, yet never truly stuck with it. After returning home from a Europe trip my senior year of high school, my skin seemed to completely break out all over. It wasn't just blackheads, it was boils under the skin that would hurt to the touch. I tried all sorts of products to heal my acne, yet nothing seemed tackle my problem. I finally decided to try out Proactiv again, and stick with it consistantly. I used the three step formula; cleanser- renewer-and lotion, along with the refining mask for the tough blemishes, and as well as the green tea moisterizer to keep my skin soft under make up. After a month or so of using the product, my skin was HEALING! Not only was it fighting away the small blemishes, yet was totally clearing away and fighting the deep sores under my skin. Acne was such an issue, and an embarrassing one at that. Yet Proactiv came to my rescue! By the time of my senior prom, I was ready for close up shots with my beautiful and healthy skin, thanks to Proactiv! I no longer have to battle acne, I wake up with clear skin, and I can be confident now when I walk out the door and greet the world. Proactiv CAN change lives.

This did absolutely nothing to help treat my acne. I stuck with it for a while, hoping to eventually see an improvement in my skin. However, that day never came. It just made my skin dry and irritated. It was also very expensive.
