That definately sounds like cystic/hormonal acne which tends to happen around the mouth, cheeks and jawline. How long have you used Proactiv? Whenever you start a skincare routine, you should give it atleast a month to work because it takes 28 days for your skin to regenerate itself.

Your best bet is to see a dermatologist, as he can prescribe you a medication like retin-A, differin gel, or clyndamycin.

Another routine that may work is:

Using a gentle, non drying cleanser
1 treatment product to address the acne (gels works best for oily or combination skin, creams and lotions are good for dry skin)
and 1 gentle moisturizer to use on dry areas.

If you want any product recommendations let me know:)
Good luck.
