I found it to be the ONLY product thats worked for me and ive tried loads..prescription..expensive beauty products and wrked my way through the whole shelf of products over the years!Its not cheap and for best results start by getting the set which is about $90 and get into a routine of using twice a day.Its been worth it for me and was recommended by a friend who also had great results....what can i well impressed!!!!

I tried it many years ago. I used it a few times, found it too drying and gave it away.

My friend swears by their product and cannot live a day without it. Though her pimples had cleared up, her complexion looked very rough and scaly (don't tell her I say so). It is drying up her skin.

I tried it for a first it worked
but then it didn't work anymore afterwards...

it was expensive and I found it drying...
since it stopped working I stopped using it..
may be it depends on what kind of pimples people have
I used to have those small whiteheads/blackheads
may be it works on larger pimples... :?

now I only use that anti-bacterial talc
and it works's very cheap too

I found it's better to use product that is not too strong.

drying too...

Postby jasonrxz » Mon, 03 Apr 2006 6:22 pm

Hi there,,,,,

Like others that posted.... tried a few years back and i got myself sensative skin with dryness too.... Pimples were dry up too though.... It was a good product for targeting pimples/acne but too drying... i have to emphasis on it...

I got a better way and that's to go for facial and treatments in my Fav. salon which cured my pimples problem and now i am targeting on my open pore due to dryness left untreated..........

Hope before u use any products...... Do know ur skin type as in if it is dry on surface and oily internally like me or other which i can't comment on.... I am not a professional yet. Hee...

Hope u can go to a salon for a skin analysis and ask for professional help ok? Money is always a issue at first but if in long term.. It is ur face that's a issue............ I am 29 this year and i really hope time will turn back and i will invested on my face though now is better than before....

Proactiv is the only acne gel that suit me... i m a teeager and have quite oily face... After using proactiv, my face is less oily and clearer... There is one problem, which is, the surface of the face tend to be dry... But no worries, it can be solved by putting hydration mask.

Proactiv is a miracle... !!!
