                Hello my name is Brandie and i have a daughter that is twelve years old and has been battling acne for a few years now.As the acne progressed so did the soreness.Not only was she dealing with the soreness and blemishes the acne also brought her self esteem extremely low.Children at school was beginning to say mean things to her as well as laugh and joke about her.Four out of the five days of school i would pick her up from school and she would be crying and begging me not to make her go back.We tried several facial cleaning products,acne treatment products,black head scrubs,masks,breakout pads and absolutely nothing worked.So one evening we were watching a tv show and saw the comercial for proactive and after not having any luck with all of the other treatments we tried i wasn't completely sure if that particular product would be any help to her.It probably took four or five times watching the comercial before saying ok for 19.95 we don't have alot to lose.The product was for all skin types which was a plus because her skin was very oily but at the same time when we used those other products it dried out and felt very rough.I made the one phone call that changed my daughters life.After using the product only one time i could tell a difference in  her skin.The redness had gone down tremendously,her skin felt a whole lot smoother,and her skin wasn't shining from being oily it was shiny from the moisturizers in proactive.So of course she couldn't wait to use it again the next day and everday after that.Her self esteem started rising,she began to participate in group activities and for once in her life felt like she was on top of the world with everyone else.I want to personally thank the inventors of proactive for a wonderful product.I tell everyone that i know that has problems with their skin or is battling acne how much it changed our lives and how well the product works.I would most definetly recommend this product.Not only is proactive affordable but you are guarenteed your money back within thirty days if your not satisfied.Once you try proactive you will see that the product delivers wonderful results.

Well okay I got sucked in one of those infomercials one night late sitting here watching television.  It was for Proactive and I thought wow it sure seems to work great I think I will try it.  I don't have bad acne not even close anyway I have the break outs right before that certain time of the month.  I thought well if it works that great for people that have it really bad then it should do a wonderful job for me.  I jumped on the phone ordered it and they threw in the green tree mask which is a miracle according to the people I talked to on the phone.  It came and I used it exactly like I was suppose to.  It seems to work at clearing it up a little bit but nothing major.  Then I kept breaking out and I thought well maybe it has to get worse before it gets better.  I ended up with more acne than I started out with.  I called them about 3 weeks after using it faithfully and told them I didn't like it.  They told me to send it back and I had to pay the postage but that was okay with me.  It took about 2 weeks and they credited my credit card.  I guess this stuff didn't work as well on me because I wasn't an actress or wasn't famous.

Convenient packaging if you like Pro Activ Products.

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Proactiv Travel Kit:

ProActiv Travel Kit is the perfect size to take with you on a vacation so you know the bottles are the correct size for travel. It's really convenient to have them in smaller sizes for keeping in a gym bag. This travel kit includes a Renewing Cleanser, Revitalizing Toner, and Repairing Lotion.

The ProActiv product works well to keep your skin from having break-outs, and I used to use Pro Activ all the time.

I recently stopped using this product because of the amount of chemicals in the product. I like to use things that are all-natural, and this is not the case with ProActiv. If you don't mind chemicals, this will most likely work for you. I had moderate acne, and after a few months it worked to clear up my skin. I tend to have sensitive skin, so I couldn't use this every day because it caused a little bit of irritation.

This is pretty easy to find online or at kiosk stores at pretty much any mall. While it's not the cheapest product, it's also not too expensive that it is not affordable.

Great For Up To A 2-Week Trip

By 

from USA

Comments about Proactiv Travel Kit:

I swear by most Proactiv products and the Proactiv Travel Kit is no exception. It contains three miniature bottles - one contains their signature face cleansing wash, one contains their signature toner and the last contains their signature lotion.

The amount of product in each bottle will last, based on my experience, for up to two weeks. If you are traveling for up to two weeks, then this is great. Otherwise, you will probably want to purchase a 30-day kit (or more) or perhaps two travel kits.

As for the product themselves, they are great. They are spa-quality -- that is, they make me feel as though I am at one whenever I use them. I like the toner and the lotion best. The face cleanser does not work well for me, so I empty out its contents and replace it with their body wash (it works great!). I also like to compliment this kit with their Green Tea Moisturizer, since the trio tends to dry out my face.

Note: Proactiv is coming out with a new line called Proactiv+ that rivals this one. I have not used it, so I cannot recommend it. But it might be something to look it into. With that said, I am not sure they have a travel kit for it.

My favorite part of the Proactiv line.

By 

from lakeland, florida

Comments about Proactiv Travel Kit:

I actually received this travel kit free when I purchased the starter kit from Proactiv. I absolutely loved it. I hated always having tote along the full size versions of the products, because they took up too much room in my traveling make up box. The travel versions come in a carrying case and are the perfect size to fit neatly into any make up box. I mention before in my Proactiv review, but this line of products is made more for teenagers and that is when I used it. It made a huge difference in my skin and I wish I could still use it today. The effectiveness of the product more than makes up for the kind of high price. I like that with the starter kit, you do get free products, like this traveling kit, sometimes. It is all definitely worth the money. This little traveling kit is the perfect size for when I wanted to go away and it works wonders on teenage skin. I definitely recommend it to any teenager looking for a product that will make a difference in their adolescent skin.

I really liked the Proactive Travel Kit.

By 

from USA

Comments about Proactiv Travel Kit:

Proactive is a great product and really helped with my adult acne. I like the travel size, it's cute and much easier to tote around than the full size or starter kits.

Effectiveness
The Proactive Travel kit is the same formula as the regular Proactive kit. It really helped a lot with my adult acne.

Ease of Application
I don't really like all the steps involved but it's worth it for clear skin! It's not hard to get the hang of it though and really isn't something that would deter me from purchasing it.

Convenience
There's lots of steps but not too bad. The travel size it really nice to, well, travel with! I do wish that the bottles were easier to refill with product though. Having clear skin is always convenient!

Side Effects
It can make your skin a little dry but it's really not that bad. Keeps my zits away, that's what matters most!

Immediacy
I like the quality of a Proactive products. I would definitely recommend them to a friend. Especially If you travel- such a great size!

Great sizes for taking Proactiv on the go

By 

from USA

Comments about Proactiv Travel Kit:

I purchased the Extra Strength Proactiv for my daughter in her mid-teens to help with her acne. They only had it in the Travel Size at the time and I'm glad I got it. They are great sizes for taking on a trip and the Extra Strength did a great job helping to clear up her acne.

Effectiveness
This product was very effective in treating acne.

Ease of Application
The bottles have a dispensing hole which eliminates any mess when using.

Convenience
The size was perfect for packing away for travel. The pouch that came with it was nice, but not spectacular.

Side Effects
The Extra Strength in particular can be a little drying and you need to stay out of the sun when using as your skin will burn more quickly.

Immediacy
It takes time to clear up acne, but this product did it rather quickly. The product website has great information explaining how blemishes develop, which helped me understand why it took some time for the product to eliminate my daughter's blemishes.

The Proactiv Travel Kit is an necessity if you use the Product

By 

from Delray Beach, FL

Comments about Proactiv Travel Kit:

The Proactiv Travel Set is a necessity of you use the products. I say this because you can easily take this for an overnight-er or pack it away for a weekend or vacation. They are so small they take up hardly any room BUT they are not too small for your get-a-way bag.

Effectiveness
I found all three products of the Proactiv Travel Set quite effective; just as effective as the individual products. Plus I have to count in the effectiveness of having all three bottles small enough to travel with. You don't have to leave home without them and worry about packing large sizes either.

Ease of Application
All three products are extremely easy to apply. Follow directions to the letter and you won't have difficulty.

Convenience
Talk about convenience, how could you ask for better than these small travel sizes to travel with. Any smaller and you will run out, any larger would be just too much product.

Side Effects
I've never personally have had side effects with this product.

Immediacy
I have found all 3 products in the set to work pretty much right away. The travel size makes it much easier to work with to grab for and move around when traveling.

It really works!

By 

from Brandon, FL

Comments about Proactiv Travel Kit:

There were so many reasons I didn't want to try Proactive. It's advertised on TV. It's promoted by Celebrities that drive me crazy. It's mail order and I have to pay shipping. Yeah right like it's really going to work.

I have had acne since I was in middle school. I saw dermatologist who gave me prescription medications topical and oral and nothing really worked.

Finally some friends of mine mentioned it to me and said they knew someone that it really worked for. I trusted them and finally gave in though I was kicking myself for it. I have to tell you though, it was the best thing I ever did. It works GREAT! I am 30 years old now and have been using it for 4-5 years. Nothing has ever given me these results. the main thing it solved for me where the big deep cysts on my chin and jaw line. No more! I have even upgraded and added the moisturizer (which I swore I would never do with my oily skin) and the body lotion and both have been wonderful. Trying their aging solutions soon for around the eyes.

All that being said, you have to use the full system or you will not get the results. I recommend the basic three step system plus the sulfer mask and you should be good to go!

Ease of Application
The only thing is that some of the active ingredients will bleach your clothes. This is true of most acne products. Get white bedding and wear clothes you don't car about to bed and you will be fine.

Convenience
Its a process but it's worth it.

works when it wants to

By 

from Charleston, SC

Comments about Proactiv Travel Kit:

I received this product from my mom who was trying to help me with my acne. I love the little case it comes in and its a cute little three bottle system. at first, i noticed that my face cleared up right away! But then later I noticed it did not have any effect on my acne. It was pretty disappointing I must admit. I rated this product as average since I have not found anything that really works yet. It is not the cheapest product out there either, especially since it does not always work! I did notice that after I dried my face, my towels were a bit discolored, so be careful if you are using this product and you are using towels that are not white! I have spoken with a few other friends about proactiv and they all agree with me... that it does not really work They bought theirs in the little machines they have in the mall, so they felt like they could not return it (because they have their money back guarantee) so it is just sitting on their shelves expiring.

Proactive is a waste of time and money

By 

from Lancaster, PA

Comments about Proactiv Travel Kit:

Since i was a little girl i have always struggled with acne.I would have breakouts constantly all over my face.My face was always bright red and irratated.All through my teen years my acne worsen.Not only did i have the pimples but the oily skin with very large pores jumping out!One morning i saw a comercial advertising the Proactive 3- stepTreatment kit.It promised to tone my face,shrink the pores,take away the pimples and enjoy life again! I would use this 3 step treatment for 4 weeks and i noticed my skin was more oily and greasy,my pores were still the same,i broke out with more pimples and the redness increased.I wanted it to work so bad that i tried it another 4 weeks only using it 1x day instead of 2x's a day.By the end of those 4 weeks the burning in my face was so bad i could have cried.The oil only worsen then before and nothing was better at all.I would never,ever,recomend the Proactive 3-Step treatment kit to no-one!
