I do. I use Proactiv's Renewing Cleanser every so often, as well as Renee Rouleau Enzyme Scrub. Just for a once-in-a-while treat, to make my skin feel *extra* smooth and soft. I still use the chemical exfoilants, though.
Just be careful because depending on how sensitive your skin is, it might not be able to take TOO much exfoliation. You don't want to irritate your skin!
Manual exfoliants alone did just about nothing for me. Chemical exfoliants (glycolic acid) alone did wonders. Adding the manual exfoliant back in on top of the chemical gave it that extra kick, my skin looks great!

So basically, the Renewing Cleanser would take place of the AHA step [for me, in the mornings]?
I only use the Proactiv cleanser once in a while in the mornings...and at those times I use it instead of the Purpose MFC. It cleans well enough, and since it is in the morning I don't have any makeup to remove.
You can continue to apply the AHA even after using the Proactiv cleanser. If you notice in the original Proactiv system, the toner that follows the cleanser contains glycolic acid...which is an AHA! So I think the system would encourage using a chemical exfoliant in addition to the manual exfoliant in the cleanser. It will help to get rid of red marks and help to soften your skin.
