Proactiv - X-Out

Are you a fan of proactiv?  Or perhaps you have always wanted to try their products but was not interested in a multi-step system?  Well the makers of Proactiv have recently released a new product called X-Out.  This wash treatment only requires one step and contains enough Benzoyl Peroxide to rival acne prescription medication. This specific product was part of my Holiday VoxBox sent by the company Influenster.  If you are interested in finding out how to qualify for your own VoxBox click HERE to read my blog post about the company.

I have not used the original Proactiv line, so I cannot compare this product to the more well known system.  However, I do like that Proactiv has introduced a one step wash treatment.  I believe the X-Out treatment is specifically targeted towards teenagers and I know how important it is to have a quick and easy skin care regimen at that age.  The nice thing about this product is that it can be used in the following three ways:

  • Wash Treatment - use on damp skin and massage into face for 1-2 minutes 2x per day
  • Face Mask - place a layer all over the face and leave on for 10 minutes
  • Spot Treatment - use a small amount on individual pimples

The product itself is a think white cream with some exfoliating beads that help smooth out the texture of your skin. If you have normal to oily skin I would suggest following the directions on the back of the bottle.  However, if you have sensitive/dry skin ( like I do) I would suggest only using this product at NIGHT and for less than the 1-2 minutes suggested until you figure out how you will react to it.  Personally, this left my face very red but by morning my skin had a wonderful smooth texture with no redness!  After about a week or so of using the X-Out wash treatment I have yet to have any new breakouts and I have even noticed my acne scars begin to fade.  

The built in pump makes the product very easy to use and keeps everything mess free.  If you are interested in purchasing the X-Out treatment you can click HERE.

With my skin, I notice that Benzoyl Peroxide works best for me. I have tried Proactiv and it didn't work for me. I don't have many breakouts, but I still like a daily wash that will keep the breakouts away. Thanks to this review, I will try this and see how it works for me
