Proactiv Solution Clarifying Night Cream 1 fl. oz
This stuff is great. I've been using the new moisturizing product. It has less salycidic acid and for me, this works much better. As others have said, I wish it came in larger sizes.
Will purchase again!
So I'm using the new Proactiv Plus system in conjunction with this clarifying night cream and instead of the Complexion Perfecting Hydrator I use this cream at night. I've tried other night creams and they all either made my oily/acne prone skin more oily or break me out and this one doesn't. One thing I've found when using it though is that if I use the exfoliating scrub at night, this cream will irritate my skin but if use a mild soap and then the Pore Targeting Treatment I will get no irritation. I can't use the exfoliating scrub twice a day anyway because it dries me out so this worked out just fine. It absorbs nicely too no heavy cream feeling on the face. I'm glad I tried it because I've spent so much money on creams that just didn't work or made my skin worse.
Great Night Cream, Multiple Benefits
This is a great night cream. The benefits I've seen have been pretty quick. I'm, ahem, older, so even though I can still break out, I also have lines on my face. Not fair right? It is helping to ease the lines and also I've noticed a big difference in the size of my pores. My skin feels smoother, and along with the cleanser I have stopped breaking out. The lines that have formed above my top lip have also softened. It comes in a small tube but you only need a small amount so it's worth it. I've been using it for a few weeks and there is still a lot left in the tube. In my opinion it's worth the money. I'll keep using it. I wish this company would start developing anti-aging products. I'll be first in line to buy them.
I LOVE this product. I use it before I go to bed. When I wake up I can see the lines around my mouth fading each day. It's not harsh on my skin at all which is a huge plus.
I have used proactive for years now and this is another great product !!! Don't ever want to be without it!!
It works, thank you QVC and Proactive, and I don't need to use it every night but it is good to have on hand
Great product, one caveat
I've only been using this a few days and can't say much about the results yet, although I'm not too clear on if this is a substitute for Step 3 (Replenishing Lotion) or if you use it on top of it. I always run out of Step 3 first, so I wish it were "instead" However, having said that, when I first started using Proactiv a couple of years ago, my skin ended up better than I ever dreamed. But as I started introducing other products better-suited for anti-aging (treatments, exfoliating serums, and so on), Proactiv kind of got lost somewhere on me, and as my acne started to returned, I lost all motivation to keep up with the system.
My concern is Step 3 not getting to do it's job, even allowing time for drying, and as much as I want to reserve Step 2 for morning or every other day, it served my face very well doing my first Proactiv experience. BUT I LOVE that this product contains retinol which is what drew me to it. I haven't been using it enough to tell a difference, but this is one of those retinol products that I don't worry about burning my skin. Typically I use "Help Me" from Philosophy, which is great, but it brings me to my next point: The Price.
I bought this elsewhere in a 2.5ox tube for just a wee bit more expensive than this price. Outside of the main system, my favorite products are this one and Green Tea Moisture, but you can rarely find them super-sized without breaking the budget (if you look, both come in 2.5oz sizes. I can go through GTM fairly quickly, so a jumbo size in each while allowing me to make my car payment would be much appreciated. I wouldn't mind gallon sizes in each, but I would be willing to meet in the middle. :)
YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE THIS STUFF!!!
Laugh at me if you will, but I swear this cream erased the lines around my mouth in 24 hours. This cream is moisturizing, but not the least bit greasy. I had tiny, very shallow lines around parts of my mouth, and now they are gone!!! I use the cream am and pm...and my skin is gorgeous! AMAZING!!!
Good news/bad news
Wow! The morning after I used this for the first time, I got up and EVERY ONE of my family members said "Your skin looks great," "Wow, mom, what did you use last night, your face looks great, etc. With each passing day, my face looks better and better. I use the 3-Step Proactive regime, but this Clarifying Night Cream obviously does wonders. I am 57 and I swear it takes years off my looks. So the good news is: it works GREAT, the bad news is: did I look that bad before?
I never bothered with anything but the three step system, and the pore refining mask. I visited my sister and she must have every item by Proactive ever made. So naturally I tried them all, and this stuff is awsome. I often get dry cheeks and chin from Proactive, so after my nightly washing I slap this on and it's like heaven to sleep in. It's smooth, and totally absorbs into the skin right away, so you don't feel oily or sticky. It soothes my dry skin right away, and I definitely feel softer in the morning. So now this is in my routine as well. :)
I received this in a kit that I purchased a few months ago and just started using it this week. I wish I had used it sooner! This is really amazing and helps to make my skin even clearer and smoother than just using the regular three step system alone which I didn't think was possible. I've been using pro-activ for about 3 years now and I don't know what I would do without it! It is a miracle worker!!!
Icing on the Cake!
I absolutely LOVE Proactiv. Been using for approx. 8 years. This was the missing ingredient. I am now pushing 38 yrs. old and I need to think about anti-aging products. This cream makes my skin glow. I never thought salicylic acid did anything for my skin, so it must be the retinol. In the morning my skin is brighter, clearer, smoother and glowing! It looks so even-toned. I've never had these results before I started using this cream. I use a small amount of repairing lotion prior to putting this on. They work great together!
