The set comes with a Renewing Cleanser, Revitalizing Toner, Repairing Treatment and a free refining mask.
The renewing cleanser is made with new, exclusive micro-crystal benzoyl peroxide. It feels like a scrub and the granules seem to work around the nose area, helping to remove dirt, excess oil and dead skin. Amazingly after two weeks of usage, the blackheads found on my husband's nose were greatly reduced. He experienced slight peeling.
The revitalizing toner feels cool and it works very well for removing impurities and excess oil. I tried the toner on my skin too, it feels refreshing and clean.
The repairing treatment feels like a light cream and slight stinging could be felt for the first few days. Hubby commented spots were smaller the next day.
The refining mask was actually a saviour for lazy person like him. He loves how well it can work as an overnight mask and keeping his breakout under control.
He gave Proactive Acne Treatment set a 4 stars out of 5. The set he is using will be finishing soon and I asked if he would continue a second purchase, he said with a BIG "YES!". From what I see, this proactive set actually also help to lighten his acne scars slightly and in my opinion, it could get a little bit drying, so it is best to combine this treatment with a waterbased mask to moisture the skin.
For your information, it comes with a 60 days guarantee. If, for any reason, you're not delighted with Proactiv, simply return the bottles (even if empty) within 60 days of receipt for a full refund of the purchase price, less shipping and handling.

Purbasari & Sumber Ayu Scrubs!!! I swear I love them!!!
It is a kind of traditional indonesia body scrub and I really love it because of the creamy texture combined with the grains inside. Slathering the creamy texture on my skin was really comfortable, not too drying nor oily. It removes the dead skin, leaving only smooth and fairer skin. Unlike most scrubs, it is mild and won't make your skin sensitive. I use it almost every alternate days and I heard it was great for bride to be for achieving smooth and radiant body skin. For those with body acne, this scrub does help to exfoliate your skin gently to prevent clog pores.
It comes with different flavours like milk, pearl, papaya, bengkoang and many more..... Best of all, it is really cheap when I bought in indonesia, bali. Probably around 1USD(approximately SGD 1.30) for a tub of 250gram shown in the picture. I do not know where you can get it in your country, but do keep a look out for this scrub when you are in indonesia the next time.
For those of you who are living in singapore, I saw these scrubs selling over at a few places(Parkway parade, City Plaza & Ang Mo Kio). It was around the range of 3 for SGD 10.
