As a beauty editor, I’m in a constant state of lipstick-testing and concealer-matching. For any makeup lover, my job has perks. But my desk is not just a makeup counter with a laptop; It’s also a lab. A huge part of my job involves knowing the basic chemistry behind skincare products.
While scientific knowledge is key in understanding how all the wonderful products in the world work, it doesn’t take a scholar to know that there are plenty of acne products that don’t work effectively. Even some of the richest, most famous people can’t get rid of their acne! You might not always see it under all that caked-on makeup, but in the age of HD everything, it doesn’t get past this beauty buff.
Given the lack of amazing acne products out there, I was not enthused by my latest assignment: reading through the details of a user-perception study conducted on Proactiv+ shortly before its launch.
But as soon as I started reading, I actually became excited. Allow me to explain.
After 13 weeks of use, everyone in the study said they’d keep using this “unknown” system (its brand name was a mystery to them). 100%. And 98% reported fewer blemishes, better clarity and improved overall skin texture.
But there was one more huge number I could hardly wrap my brain around. Over 85% of study participants said that, compared to prescription acne treatments, they noticed better results with Proactiv+. How could that be? Since I had a hard time believing it, I dug further.
That’s when I discovered Proactiv+ had clinical studies that showed that, compared to the leading topical prescription, Proactiv+ actually cleared acne four times faster†! This finding totally blew my mind!
Proactiv+ is different because it’s the only acne treatment you can buy that has skin-friendly Smart Target® technology. This exclusive, advanced technology concentrates the benzoyl peroxide (BPO) medicine and steers it directly into pores where it can do its thing—kill acne-causing bacteria. If too much BPO remains on the upper layer of skin (or dermis), it can cause more irritation. That’s why Smart Target® is the Proactiv+ secret to being both gentle on the skin and exceptional at clearing acne blemishes compared to the leading topical prescription.
I certainly didn’t think I’d be writing a story about acne products this week. I also never thought I’d be writing about something so seemingly obvious. Who in the world hasn’t seen a Proactiv® commercial? Now, it seems that the newer Proactiv+ is making all the difference in the world of skincare. I’m just happy to report there’s something out there that really works.

†Study participants suffering from mild to moderate acne using the most commonly prescribed generic acne treatment gel (as of April, 2014) took 4 weeks to achieve approximately the same reduction in total lesion count as achieved by study participants after just 1 week’s use of PA+. After 12 weeks use, total lesion count reduction data between the same 2 groups showed that PA+ was still twice as fast.
