    This is true. I use proactive and you have to be consistent with it on a daily basis. For me, though, I also found that along with using it every day, I can't just rely on them totally. Since I have brown skin, I need more moisture than what the lotion ( step 3 ) provides, so sometimes I put a little shea butter on my face. It doesn't break my face out because the medication is working underneath.

    I definitely recommend this product if you've tried everything on the market like I did: Neutrogena, Clearasil, African Black Soap, Organic Oatmeal Soap, prescription products in my teens, Noxema, Witch Hazel, Ambi, St. Ive's, etc etc. ...and nothing really changed.

    YES

    I use it and have been using it for a few years now

    I realized the reason the original formula was making my skin flake off and get red, though

    it got rid of my acne (even all of the old scars) but it dryed my skin out which is weird bc my type is sensitive and OILYYYY

    now I use the GENTLE formula. my skin is allergic to the original one. HTH

    No idea, I went on accutaine twice & it helped tremendously. I'd say ACCUTAINE is the truth but u need ur doc to not only prescribe it but FOLLOW thru as in monthly blood tests & double contraception as baby cld be born deformed if you conceive once on it BUT I had really bad acne so I took the risk, had a GREAT doc & voila...it worked.

    8yrs later, I'm preggas & my skin is awful...if it doesnt clear up on its own, I'll go on it for the third time after breastfeeding. Its expensive though, not entirely covered & I had to cough up about $240

    Thumbs up

    ProActiv works...people say it becomes drying because after your skin improves, you have to slowly cut back. I only use the cleanser a few times a week....the toner & the green tea moisturizer are great.

    I am happy that it worked for all of you but it made my acne much worst and I used the entire product line faithfully.

    maybe you have sensitive skin. They have a sensitive skin formula now. My skin is sensitive too but I never used it as often as suggested.
    At first I used it once every other day then as my skin improved I just used the cleanser once or twice a week.
    The cleanser is probably causing the flare ups. I can imagine if you have a bad breakout, the exfoliating cleanser would aggravate it.

    On all the other days I use my beloved Mary Kay cleanser & moisturizer. It makes my skin feel like a baby`s bottom.

    Everyone`s skin is different tho. Some of the things others have raved about have dried my skin out or given me large pores.

    made my skin a lot worse. My dermatologist put me on dermazinc soap(can buy on amazon , expensive but will last two months). Also, she added aqua glycolic toner(also available on amazon). I also use Cerave moisturizer which keeps the dryness at bay.

    I started using freemans lemon and avocado mask once a week and my pores have shrunk tremendously.

    Works for me. My acne was terrible due to seborrheic dermatitis. In control now.
