Proactiv is the only product that has ever cleared my skin, and I think the lotion is the most important component of the "system". (I only use the cleanser and lotion.) It's gentle enough to use all over your face on a daily basis without being overly drying. It is bleaching, however, so you may find you have to use all white towels and pillowcases.

If you talk to any dermatologist worth his or her salt, they'll tell you there's no point in washing with a benzoyl peroxide cleanser, because when you rinse it off, you rinse off the expensive medicine too! Why bother with the whole Proactiv system; it's absurdly overpriced. That said, their lotion is pretty much irreplaceable, since it has the medication in a lotion form, which is exceedingly rare.

Use Purpose or Cetaphil cleanser with Proactiv's lotion AT NIGHT. In the morning, use the same cleanser, but you'll need to use a moisturizer/sunscreen combo to prevent skin cancer, so you cannot use this stuff! Try Aveeno Daily Moisturizer spf 30 or Neutrogena Healthy Defense spf 30 or 45. Both are very good (and noncomedogenic) and recommended by many dermatologists.

Be SURE you never use a moisturizer or a suncreen (either separately or as a combo) that has zinc oxide - zinc oxide turns your skin white because it is a "physical" blocker - it literally lays on top of your skin instead of being absorbed into it.

Dan's Regimen from acne dot org is okay, except for the fact his daily moisturizer lacks an spf, and except for the fact some people prefer a lotion benzoyl peroxide treatment at night instead of a gel. Amazon has a 2oz bottle for $9, which is cheaper than you can get it on ebay.

Perhaps one day when the Acnefree lotion or the Klear Action lotion are sold separately, it will be cheaper than this stuff, but until then, Proactiv is the cheapest 2.5% benzoyl peroxide lotion on the market.

Edit 8/26/10 I purchased a bottle of the "New" proactiv lotion two weeks ago. It has a very strong, very irritating fragrance that made me break out.

I bought the Proactiv Repairing Lotion to replace another product I'd been using for a long time with poor results. The Proactiv lotion blew me away! It works better than I could have expected. A couple of things to note about it: 1. You might not need to use it every day. I put it on my forehead every night, but I use it more like an on the spot treatment for the rest of my face. I found that if I used it like a mask every night, within three days my skin was dried out and flaking off. I've had excellent results using it as described above. 2. The lotion has a bleaching effect on fabric. When you're done applying it, wash your hands with soap. Do not just wipe your hands off on a towel or it'll take the color out of it. Also, be mindful of the pillow case you use if you put it on at night. Once the Proactiv dries it's pretty stable, but I still wouldn't rest my head on a prized pillow case while using it.

This is not ORIGINAL Proactiv Solution!! They just ship you a new formula instead of original! New formula does not work for me, so this is useless!

Not entirely sure why they say it's the original formula when it's not. I did research and specifically bought this, though it wasn't the most cost effective, because I thought it was the original formula.
And it isn't.

I have trouble with adult acne. This is the only thing I have found that actually works for me! It doesn't dry out my skin and it works very quickly to stop a break out. I use it routinely in the area I tend to have issues and only when needed on other parts of my face. I haven't had to deal with a break out since I've started using this product. I love it!

Proactiv helps reduce the spots on my face. I use it twice a day after cleansing, toning my face. Then I finish off with a night cream or day cream accordingly. I think some people find it drying but it certainly works for me and can not do without it. It was given to me as a gift from a friend. I shopped around looking for it after I have used up the tube. I order what I need and as I need it from Amazon and it works out cheaper than buying direct from Proactiv.
