i had great results fora year and a half, and then my skin got even worse than before. I am now being treated for "severe" acne, and I was mild before I started proactiv. I guess ill never know what would have happened had I not used proactiv. this has happened to several people I know as well....its effectiveness seems to fade, and your skin gets worse than before. i was horrified...and still am...I hope this doesnt happen to you
I used Proactiv for about 9 months - at first I really liked it, it made my skin softer, but I would still break out. I think it helped to heal my new breakouts pretty well, but didn't do much to prevent them. After spending that much $$ without the results I was hoping for, I gave it up for a Neutrogena face wash, which actually worked better (and was kinder to my wallet). :)
I was on proactiv (still am) since July. I was quite happy with it until last month. All of a sudden I started to break out, then went away after a few weeks and now I broke out again. I'm starting to think it's not for me anymore. However I don't want to discourage you from tring it. I wish you luck on it.
Hey proactive seems to work but i dont want to order it.. That will take to long.. Is there any home made recipies that will work overnight?
Proactiv I use it for 2 months did not work for me 45.00 every two months is alot to spend if it work than worth it. I"m glad it did not work because I dont want to spent 45.00 every two months but than kind of mad it did not work because I still have acne and it sucks.
i just use it on my chin

You don't have to use all of the products. I'm not a fan of Proactiv, but I do love the refining mask, It really helps to pull out all of the impurities; and it leaves my face feeling very healthy.
Worked for about 2 years-then I started breaking out (though I also stopped breastfeeding my baby and restarted B.C). Made my face oily too. I've not heard great things about the long term use of BP since visiting these boards-you might want to check it out.

It seems like most people do not have good long-term luck with pro-active. Do you think all the people in the info-mercial are lying? P-Diddy, J. Simpson, Alecia Keyes plus all the teens and success stories they show. I tell ya, it gets me every time and I want to order it. Then the board brings me back to reality. I have to say that Alecia Keyes is not very convincing in those commercials. Like she's holding back something. But the rest of them seem so into it. Oh, well, my daughter didn't like it the first time so I guess I'll just quit watching them.
yeah, its hard watching those commercials! trust me i understand..something i cant stand watching jessica simpson on tv with her beautiful skin...but then i realize i cant be mad at her for my skin...my skin has improved by yasmin *birth control*....but its the tone, color, and red marks..im working on now! any help is needed!! thanks a bunch!!!
Well, I used Proactiv about a year or so ago, and I loved it. I just recently bought it again and used it last night. Well I did the whole little regimen that they suggested and after I put on the lotion it started to itch and turn bright tomato red :o . Then this morning I woke up and my eye lid was swollen. Needless to say I think I am allergic to a product in the medicine and will be returning it. When I used it before it worked wonders, I guess things change though.
did you ever use the lightening lotion?
No, I didn't sorry. I actually hadn't heard of it until this time. Sorry, if I wasnt any help. Good luck with the system!
im sorry u had a reaction to it! thanks thou..goodluck!!!
