So my sleepless weeks have backfired with acne here and there (literally, since I have two), I have been religiously using the Proactiv Solution Deep Cleansing Wash and I love that acne does not erupt as violently as it would if I don’t use this product.

Proactiv Refining Mask

Now, while I already love how effective the Proactiv Solution is, there is also Proactiv Refining Mask. It is a rinse-off mask that perfectly complements the Proactiv 3-step Combination Therapy System by reducing redness and inflammation associated with acne. It comes free with every purchase of Proactiv 30-day or 60-day kit.

What is the Proactiv Refining Mask made of, you ask. It is made of a powerful concentration (6%) of antibacterial sulfur – a proven acne-fighting ingredient; its vitamin-enriched formula helps give a brighter, younger looking complexion. It refines texture and tone of skin and pores appear smaller.

Proactiv Refining Mask also contains Kaolin clay which helps absorb excess oil. It has Vitamin E, a potent antioxidant that protects skin from free radicals and soothes and nourishes the skin. It has Vitamin F Complex to help retain skin moisture. The tea tree oil in this mask provides antiseptic and cleansing properties, while the geranium and lemongrass extracts provide overall skin conditioning.

It is probably the advanced microcrystal benzoyl peroxide in the Proactiv® 3-Step System that kill acne-causing bacteria. It also contains glycolic acid and other exfoliants reduce excess oils and dead skin cells.
