I'm surprised by the low rating and reviews for this! I've been using the Pro Activ 3 step for over 4 years now, and it has worked wonders. Ever since puberty started, I have had constant breakouts and acne. There's never a day where I don't have at least a couple pimples. My skin got to be too much that my mom suggested I get something for it. I was recommended this product and ever since then, my skin isn't as bad as before. Yeah I breakout here and there sometimes, but that's only because of hormones. But there is something you need to watch out for, if you stop using it for awhile, your skin will go back to the way it was before you started. And also, if you use it too often, your skin might get dry, but that's only a minor thing cause you can always moisturize as often as needed. I like how it comes with a facial mask tube. I use it almost everyday to dry up and minimize huge pimples and or ones that I feel are starting to grow. I would definitely reccomend Pro Activ, even if it is almost $60 a set. The price is worth the result.

Din't work for me. I found a better product for less money (neutrogena and clean&clear) and they do wonders for my skin. The only good thing about proactiv is the mask. But to pricey too.

My skin is oil-prone and breaks out easily under stress. I used the Pro Activ system for a couple years, to mixed results. I think it helped maintain and even improve clear skin, reducing the incidence of the occasional pimple. However, it neither prevented nor treated my massive stress-induced breakouts. I think I can get similar or better results with less expensive products. My other complaint is that you can't open the bottles to easily transfer the product to other containers, e.g. for traveling.

I got this product to help my skin about 4 weeks before my wedding. It seemed to do okay for a while but after the wedding (thank God!) it started drying out my skin really badly. I think overall the products were just too harsh for my more sensitive skin. Maybe now that they have a new moisturizer it wouldn't be so bad... I doubt I'll purchase it again though.

When I got this I was breaking out pretty heavily and my skin cleared up immediately and stayed clear for about a week. After the first week I started breaking out again and it just got worse and worse and worse until I stopped using the whole entire system. It didn't work for me, but my friend who uses the system now has acne-free skin so i guess it's worth a shot.

From reading the reviews, it looks like many people didn't like proactiv, but I used it and it gave me pretty good results. It cleared up all of my acne..it wasn't much acne at all, but i had those little bumps on my forehead that nothing can get rid of except proactiv. the bad thing is that it's really strong so it can dry out your skin.

I also had mild acne and I just wanted clear smooth beautiful skin just like the advertisement told me I could have so I tried it and it caused me to breakout, and not only just break out but intensely breakout beyond anything I had ever experienced before. I had huge red blotches of acne that made my face look swollen and feel PAINFUL. I would not recommend this to anybody use a trusted department store brand they are just as expensive but alot more safe.

I bought this product after I experienced a particularly stubborn breakout after using Benefit's Dallas blush. I have rather mild acne, I only break out before my period and I get a couple of zits that go away. I'd always wanted really clear skin though, just like in the pro-activ ads (lol naive much?) so I decided to give it a try. Oh my gosh. Worst experience ever. I broke out like there was no tomorrow along my jaw line and it wasn't even the regular whiteheads I usually got- I got these awful huge red painful bumps. My whole face had a sort of darkened look like the skin was chemically burned. This stuff bleaches your clothes - isn't that an indication of how strong it is? I guess this only works if you have serious acne but if you only break out occasionally, proactiv makes your skin worse not better.

I gave it two lip sticks because it did work when I began. I was first introduced to the system when I was 16 years old. It worked for the first year but I matured and so did my pimples! I used to get the ones that weren't deep in my skin but somehow with age, stress, horomones, etc, my pimples became bigger and seemed to be in the deeper layers of my skin. I would say this probably works for mild to little acne but not for people who have severe acne.

I never had really bad acne. My forehead developed a problem only because I got bangs. I started by using the product on my whole face, but a few days later, I found my skin reallllly dry and flaky. It was the most unpleasant thing! I stopped and went back to using it after the dryness subsided, but only on my forehead. I found the same thing to happen when I used it everyday. I started using it every other day, and I saw a bit of improvement. Now the acne on my forehead is gone, but the product left my forehead to be the most oily part of my face. I've stopped using it now since I can't stand what it was doing to my skin.
