Product Description

Benefits

The Complete Acne Therapy System has the power to control acne while being gentle on your skin.

Using the two leading over-the-counter acne medicines, this powerful kit contains three acne skin care products clinically shown to significantly reduce many signs of acne in just four days, including breakouts, blackheads.

Cleanse: The Skin Polishing Acne Cleanser contains Salicylic Acid, that penetrates pores as it cleanses to clear oil and impurities. Meanwhile, glycolic acid polishes by helping to sweep away roughness and dead skin. Treats acne and helps prevent future breakouts for clearer, healthier-looking skin.

Day: The Oil-Free SPF 15 Lotion (as needed) is a unique combination of SPF 15 and DermaNaturals®, an exclusive botanical complex. This sunscreen for acne-prone skin helps protect skin from the sun’s damaging UV rays.

Night: The Acne Control Lotion contains Benzoyl Peroxide acne medicine, which kills acne-causing bacteria, treats inflamed breakouts and helps prevent future acne.

  • Non-comedogenic (won't clog pores)

The Neutrogena skin polishing acne cleanser leaves my face feeling clean and refreshed after I use it. It leaves my face looking clean, it exfoliates, and has helped maintain my skin giving it a healthy look. I don’t have a lot of acne but I have noticed a significantly smaller amount of breakouts than I had before using this product.

I have a moderate acne problem, nothing too serious, but still embarrassing enough on a man of my age that I feel a need to do whatever I can to get rid of it. My sister recommended using this acne therapy system on my face to get rid of my pimples, so I figured I would give it a shot and try it. I actually used it for a full months before making an informed decision about its success and I'll have to say, not the most successful.

I love this system! The acne wash makes your skin feel so soft and clean afterwards and is very gentle -for sensitive skin. The acne lotion continues to make your skin feel soft and clean and like your pores were renewed. I think the price was a good deal too, it really cleared up my skin and I have bought it continuously!

This three step system was the first skin care system I ever purchased and I still rely on it for stubborn breakouts about 7 years later! The face wash works wonders, the spot treatment is great to leave on pimples and forget and shrinks them, and the moisturizer is the best because it’s lightweight and oil free

I've only been using it for about a week and it hasn't done much besides smooth my skin out. I did use it as a teen after proactiv didn't come through for me. It worked like a charm back then and I know it's a process and my skin will clear up again. :)

Worked well for me until my skin got used to it. I will say that it did break my brother out, he ended up being alergic to a few ingredients in the product.

( i know this goes without saying but, please read the back of the product to make sure you aren't alergic)

For years I had tiny flesh colored bumps all over my forehead and nothing I used or did would get rid of them until I purchased this set. Within days my forehead had completely cleared and my skin looked better than it ever had.

When I was using it very consistently my skin got very dry, but my acne was clearing up so much!!! I would recommend these products to anyone, just be careful if you’re going to implement them into an everyday routine long term.

If I could give this 10 stars I would!!!  I absolutely LOVE this face wash.  This whole kit is amazing.   I have been using it for years and it is the only thing that keeps my face clear.  With normal/dry skin I just have to make sure I use the moisturizer regularly.  I really hope that it saying discontinued is false.  I know as of now I am able to buy it.  However I have noticed less people carrying it.

These product just didn’t do anything for me. I don’t know what it is but I just didn’t like anything about this product. It kinda smelled like chemicals and overall was not doing anything for me or my skin.
