Proactiv Pore Refining Peel Review

Skin Care Secret: The $20 At-Home Peel

Most of us know Proactiv from infomercials touting its three-step skin care system. But did you know there's an entire Proactiv product line? Yep. It's just extremely hard to find, but you can order by phone (888-819-2019) if you're so inclined. One item in particular is worth tracking down. I recently had a facial that used Proactiv's Pore Refining Peel ($20), and my complexion looked practically poreless afterward. It's due to the formula's glycolic acid, which exfoliates all the dead, dull skin. Whether you have acne or not, glycolic acid is one of those ingredients that — when used judiciously — gives skin that glowy, fresh look. You'll feel mild stinging when applying the peel, but the results are well worth it. And at $20 for 15 treatments, your wallet won't feel too much of a sting, either.

I buy them from ebay. You can usually find 15 packets for under $23.00.

Yes, it's difficult to find a good one at a reasonable price. It really does improve the complexion, though -- just have to wear SPF afterward, which everyone is already doing anyway, right? If money is not a concern, I've always loved Dr. Gross/MD Skincare's Alpha Beta peel. When I was just out of college, I used to save up for those, then cut them in half to make them last longer.

A good peel under $50 is rare. Thanks for sharing.

$33.95 is still a good deal!

Hi Utkgurl, Thanks for your comment. Shipping, as you said, is additional, but that's par for the course with any online retailer. The product costs $20, and if there's a Proactiv kiosk near you (they're in some malls and shopping centers) then you can bypass shipping costs.
