Proactiv and Exposed are popular acne treatment systems used to clear up mild to moderate acne. Acne is a common skin disease that causes pimples. Proactiv and Exposed penetrate the skin to clear clogged pores of oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. The ultimate goal of both products is to clear up troublesome acne, create an even skin tone and prevent new acne from forming.


As an acne treatment system, Proactiv has received favourable reviews from customers and celebrity personas. Proactiv's claim that the product kills bacteria within the pores and leaves healthy acne-free skin is made more credible by the fact that the product is the creation of Stanford-trained board certified dermatologist. Antimicrobial acne medicines with botanicals are the ingredients used to produce healthy skin.

Exposed acne system provides symptomatic relief and no continual side effects for its users; men and women will see no excessive dryness to the skin while treating redness, irritation, itching, inflammation and scarring. The product relieves mild to moderate acne as well as more serious acne that creates nodules and cysts. Exposed uses a synergistic system that combines ingredients from science and nature to create a product that renews skin.


Users of Proactiv have complained of excessive dryness of the skin caused by normal usage of the product. There is a list of do's and don'ts when using the acne system that must be followed in order to prevent irritation and dryness. Users should take precaution when using Proactiv and protect their skin from excessive exposure to the sun.

Users of Exposed complain of worsening acne during initial use. Exposed takes a longer period of time before the product activates and begins to fight the bacteria that causes acne. In certain cases, an oral supplement is needed. A probiotic complex can be purchased separately from the topical acne system to internally fight acne.


Proactiv has a 60-day money back guarantee and Exposed offers a full-year money back guarantee for any customer who is dissatisfied with their product. An automatic delivery system can be set-up for both acne treatment systems starting with an order being delivered every 60 days, if desired.

Customer Support

Proactiv and Exposed each have a 24/7 call centre and an online customer support system where customers can ask questions and/or order products. Online customer testimonials prefer Proactiv product return system over Exposed with customers expressing difficulty returning product to Exposed.


The price for Proactive three-step acne treatment system starts at £12.90 and £19.40 for the Proactiv Plus Deluxe System or the Proactiv Plus Total System, as of May 2010.

Exposed acne treatment system ranges in price from £16.20 for a 30-day four piece supply to £32.40 for a 60-day five piece supply, or a 60-day six piece supply. There is a £6 cost difference between the member and non-member system with a five piece system for non-members costing £38.90 and a six piece non-member system costing £45.40, as of May 2010.
