A59404 - Proactiv Solution Mild Exfoliating Peel, 1 oz.
I was very let down by this product. Not at all what I expected.
Didn't Work For Me!!!
I've used Proactiv for about 8 years....mostly the cleanser, toner, and moisturizers. But recently I've started getting a lot of blackheads on my cheeks. This is very unusual for me, actually never had any blackheads before. I thought I'd try this peel. Nothing happened!! Seriously...nothing! I tried a thin layer and then a thick layer. I let it dry completely. My face was shiny and tight so I started rubbing it in circles and then up and down. Nothing came off!! After abusing my skin for way too long, I rinsed it off. Nothing!! It did nothing!! If I were to use an even thicker layer to finally rub something off, this peel would last about 3 times. Too expensive to accomplish nothing. It's going back today.
WORKS GREAT IS NOT A PEEL OFF
This product works great! It is not a "peel off" product. You apply, let dry and RUB it around on your skin. The more you rub, the more you will see brown dead skin cells rubbing off. If you're skin is "clean" meaning already exfoliated, then the debris is not going to be as noticeable. It definitely works and makes a big difference!
While I LOVE Proactiv's products, I was quite disappointed in the Mild Exfoliating Peel. In the past have tried other exfoliating "gommage" type products from other skin care lines and I find this does not provide the results I am used to. It is very difficult to remove the product how it is intended; instead I end up rinsing the product off each time. Its too bad this product does not live up to my expectations since the other products I have tried from this line work quite well providing wonderful results.
I don't know why there are negative reviews on this product. I have been using the Mild Exfoliating Peel for two years now and I simply cannot be without it. The results I get from this are great. It eliminates my blackheads and minimizes my pores and theres a healthy glow from it. I was once a month without it and noticed a change (bad not good) and never again will I be without it.
Does not peel off
I too thought this would be a great addition to my regimine.... No matter how little or how much I put on it really did not work. Most of the time I just ended up washing it off.
Did not "peel" off
I'm very disappointed with this Proactiv peel as it did not "peel" off and found it irritating to my skin. I recently started using the starter kit and absolutely LOVE the results I have gotten. I will continue to use other Proactiv products but not this one.
Not so mild peel
I have to agree with other reviewers. I've been using proactiv for about 5 years now and love their products! However I also felt this was hard to rub off. My skin was more irritated by the time I was done using this. Have tried it several times different ways to see if maybe I wasn't doing it right but have gotten no results. Stick with the proactiv mask, it's great!
Not What I Expected
I absolutely love the cleanser, toner, repair lotion, and the mask. I thought this peel would be a great addition to my routine, but I just can't get it to work. I put a thin layer on and tried to rub it off. I had to rub my face so hard it seemed like I was doing more harm than good. I rubbed and still felt like half the product was left on my face. Proactive has so many more great products, just not this one.
Gentle and Effective
I have been using proactive products for about three years for mild to moderate acne. I unfortunately can only use the renewing cleanser on an average of once a week because my skin is so sensitive and the beads in the cleanser tend to make my face appear more oily. This product along with the toner, repairing lotion, and mask have keep my skin looking better than it did in years. My girlfriend gave me this after she used it a felt it was not working. If you use the renewing cleanser you will not see any skin roll off your face because it's already exfoliated. When you use it after washing with something that is not an exfoliator, the skin that comes off looks almost as thin as a rolled up cob web. When you put the product on your face your skin will be shiny and feel refreshed. It's not a mask so you won't see any color, it won't be thick and will dry quickly. Gently rub your skin in a circular motion. When your face is not shiny the product has finished working. You can feel that your skin is smooth when you rinse. Product works great especially when you need something gentle after prolonged sun exposure. Great for all skin types, especially sensitive, not just acne prone.
Not as good as I expect of Proactv
I am an avid Proactiv user. I have used it for 6 years and LOVE the products, would highly recommend the 4 & 5 pc. systems to everyone but this didn't provide the results I had hoped for. The instructions say to put thin layer on skin, leave on and use fingertips to rub off. I have tried a few times and nothing really rubs or peels off. I have tried many many other Proactiv products and this is the only one I haven't loved. It's not what I expected from a "peel".
