I'm a convert. I never had really bad skin, just an occasional break-out. For some reason my skin went from managable to bad in the last 8 months or so. I literally tried every remedy imaginable. I tried Proactiv years ago and it didn't seem to work for me. Well, I decided to give it another go and it is working beautifully! I'm thrilled. I guess it depends on your skin type and for some reason it is effective on my adult skin. So happy.

 Everything works differently for everyone. I have had friends who RAVE about it,but it made mine worse and I used it for 6 months.
I finally found a dermatologist and got put on differin gel which is wonderful. (yes,I STARTED with acne at 28,how lucky was I?) I use the differin gel once a day and I only get teeny tiny zits usually right before my period (but clear otherwise now) good luck to you,but if the proactiv doesnt work,dont feel discouraged! Dermatologist can work wonders and some really arent that expensive.(I paid more for proactiv then I did for my visit)

I tried proactic years ago, and it was the only thing that really worked for me. I have super sensitive skin, so I had to adjust the regimen. The first time I used it I followed the directions exactly. I ended up looking like a tomato, a bumpy raggedy tomato. After my skin healed I just dabbed the tiniest amount on the pimples/zits themselves. Worked wonders. I used the toner and mask freely. My skin loved those two items.

id never suggest using something like proactive that is way to much chemical to put on your skin, tea tree oil from a herbal store will give the same EFFECT and probably better results less drying of the skin!

I tired Proactiv and everything else - the BESt is AcneFree which is a similar system to Proactiv but not as harsh.  I started out using the whole system but seriously I thought my skin was going to crack and come off......I stopped using the repair lotion all over my face and just a light swipe on any blemishes and sometimes let it all sit there for a few minutes then use an oil lfree moiisturizer on top -  my skins so much better - You  can get acnefree online (acnefree.com) or costco - target - walgreens......cheaper than proactiv too.

yes it works. My skin used to be really bad in high school. if you are sensitive to the benzoil peroxide, give it a week using less until you can build a tolerance to it. 
 
Another good product/s to try is by opaltech77 on ebay. They offer products that lighten and peel the skin. They are very effective and not too expensive compared to other companies selling less potent products.

I haven't personally used the product but I have several friends who do and have seen great results. My sister swears by the stuff. She had a brief onset of adult acne and the Proactiv really helped.

I haven't tried proactiv yet, however for those of you with sensitive skin, I really had sucess with the Eucerin line for sensitive skin, they have a daily clearing lotion that really keeps my skin clear you should be able to find it at most drugstores IE walgreens. My sister uses proactiv now & she is a marykay rep, but their stuff didn't work for her. I was thinking about trying proactiv since I left California there is no walgreens in my town but there is one under construction now (yeh!) so I think I will wait...

   I Had severe acne and Proactive worked great. I have been using it for one year now and my skin has never looked better. I suggest you try it out. I know people who have had great luck with it and others not. I am faithful to it and would not even chance using anything else.

 

Good Luck.

I know I said that Proactiv works...but then over the weekend I went to a Lancome makeup counter...where I also got some skin tips. I found their products (although expensive) to help *amazingly!* Especially a product called Sensation Totale..which evened out redness throughout my face and Aqua Fusion moisturizer. I figured I should put this in to say that I have stopped using Proactiv...

Well now I'm using Retin A, but before that I had started using Murad Acne Complex.  It was amazing!  I have the very sensitive combination skin, but Murad didn't dry my face, didn't irritate and it did clear up my acne.  Eventually I probably will have to stop the Retin A and go back to Murad, because the retin a  is too harsh.  I switched to see if the Retin A has better results, I can say it has cleared up my acne scarring, but the side effects are brutal.

I have used ProActiv...it worked well..except my face became very shiny and oily-looking...I does help clear my acne however. I now only use ProActiv at night...and Velocity by Mary Kay in the morning...which I love!
