Proactiv Is A Subscription And You Will Be Charged Bi-Monthly

If you’re breaking out and thinking of trying Proactiv, you should understand that you are signing up for their “club,” not just buying some expensive benzoyl peroxide. A reader wrote in today shocked that Proactiv was charging her card and shipping her new product without her consent, when, in fact, it very clearly states that by ordering Proactiv you are signing up for a subscription. From Proactiv’s Site:

By ordering now, you will receive a one month supply of our 3-piece club package. After 30 days, you’ll receive our regular 2 month supply of Proactiv every 60 days at the guaranteed low price of just $39.95 plus $5.95 s&h per shipment, which will automatically be billed to the same credit card you provide today.

If you don’t cancel you’ll be responsible for the shipping, so make sure you pay attention to what you are agreeing to. This goes for all infomercial-type products.—MEGHANN MARCO
