Re: Proactiv
Nov 18, 2005
Be careful about proactiv.. i used it for 5 years.. it worked in the beginning but for the last year it made me break out like crazy!! I was getting cysts the size of pennies under my chin.. i too did some research and a lot of people told me that my face would get really worse as soon as i stopped using it.. i decided to take my chances and stop using it because i felt my acne couldn't get any worse.. i switched to oil free neutrogena cleanser and neutrogena gentle scrub that is also oil free.. i use the scrub first then the cleanser.. i have seen amazing results.. i have had NO cysts at all.. i use to always have one brewing.. ALWAYS!! :confused:

This is alot cheaper and i think if i started this way back when i would have saved hundreds..

I will say this.. i still use the proactiv refining mask.. it has sulfur in it.. i put a little dab on the pimples no matter what "stage" their in at night.. and it really helps get rid of them.. it kinda "dries" them up.. esp if a whit head has popped.. in one of the catalogs from proactiv it suggested to use the refining mask in this way.. so i do the dabbing instead of using it as a mask.. :)

be careful with proactiv.. i use to swear by it but i think my skin got "immune" to it.. good luck i hope this info helps
