- Prescription grade benzoyl peroxide.
Step 2: Revitalizing Toner

- Removes excess oil
- Soothes the skin
Step 3: Repairing Lotion
- Heals blemishes and prevents new ones
Eventhough there is no real cure for acne, there are ways to treat acne safely and effectively. To prevent acne you must have an acne treatment that attacks acne at its source - your pores.
Proactiv was developed by the Stanford trained doctors Dr. Rodan M.D. and Dr.Fields M.D., whose personal struggles with acne led to the design and development of this product.
Proactiv is an affordable acne treatment that may work for you as it has worked for many other people.
What is Proactiv’s Success Rate?
Proactiv is one of the more popular acne treatments on the market and with a 76% success rate, it is hard not to see why. Is 76% good? Sure. What about the other 24%? Those 24% usually have some sort of reaction, be it allergic or skin irritation. Out of the 76% of acne sufferers who have success with Proactiv’s Solution, only about 50% of them reorder due to its cost.
