Re: Proactiv
Jun 30, 2003
honestly try it. I have been battling acne for 10 years. I used it 2 years ago. I was going to go on accutane back then,but i bought proactiv from the tv. AND IT WORKED. I have always had cysts. everything went away, in only about 6 weeks. I did have an initial breakout during the first few days. My skin never looked so good. My whole life changed. I was a totally different person. My face had not been that smooth and clear since 6th grade. But after a year and 10 months, it all started back up again with these huge CYSTS on my chin. this was last fall. i tried new antibiotcs, and retin-a. nothing at all is working. I am going on accutane in 2 weeks, when i get my period. I can't wait! so anyway i felt extremely betrayed because i thought it would work forever. I have no idea why it stopped working. I asked my derm, who is a prick,i just got a new one. He said with a disgusted look on his face, proactiv is just benzoyal perixide. i said well you haven't seen me here in 2 years, it WORKED. For some reason i don't think he believed me. So i will tell you to try it, i don't know your history or if your acne is mild, moderate or severe. But the reason i am on this board now, is because proactiv stopped working for me.
