  • I liked proactive but found the walmart version AcneFree works just as is cheaper and no monthly fees.

    both can dry out your skin if you use them every day so I alternated. I used my proactive (or acnefree) one day and something a little less drying the other days (clearasil foaming face wash) if you have worse acne (or during that time of the month) you may want to use the proactive (acenfree) daily or even twice a day.

  • Used it forever and it never really made a difference. And they make it impossible to cancel or speak to a rep.

  • I purchased it for my dd for christmas. A waste of money. Sulfer soap cost 1.00 a bar and its better than anything on the market =)

  • Hated it. The only thing that works for me is Murad. I had tried EVERYTHING you can imagine, and nothing worked. I even had a dermatologist and paid hundreds and hundreds of dollars for things that never worked. Murad is affordable ($60 monthly) and it cleared my face up quickly and I had severe adult acne. I also now wear Bare Minerals and that helps too, and is also affordable ($60 every two months).

  • The Clearskin Professional Line by Avon is similar to Proactiv but my customers say it works better, its less expensive and you can buy the products seperately and as you need them. I use it and what I love best is that it works but doesn't dry out my skin. It only took about 4 days before I say a big difference. Give it a try at through that link you can get free shipping with code fsany GL!
