...Do not buy anything Proactiv + from them or any products they hide there name by the website but it comes up as Guthy Renker on your bank account..


Be very careful on their return policy before you place your order! They won't accept return with open boxes. Only purchase from them when you are 100%sure you will be happy with what you want to buy, and you are 100% sure you will never change your mind. Otherwise, never risk your money on this...
