Does Proactiv work good?

Im hoping it does, I just ordered it. I dont have too bad of acne, but I have alot of random breakouts, sometimes they get bad. My wedding is June 12th, and I want to look my best, so Im hoping it works for me :)

  • it didnt work for me, but it does work for alot of people. be careful as you get closer to your wedding thought because it makes your skin red sometimes, especially at first. i know a better product called obagi clenziderm. only thing thats ever worked for me.

  • No, it does not work very well at all. It also smells bad.

  • it worked for me, when i was younger i had horrible acne and i tried everything and that was the only thing that worked for me. but it would dry out my face at times. but i dont use it anymore as to it is pricey and my skin got really clear after so now i use st. ives apricot scrub and that works for me. and i get super clear skin now.

  • it dried out my skin. It got rid of the acne but then made my skin flakey...I now use Arbonne and it works wonderful with out drying my skin. I also use a clarisonic face brush!

  • It worked for me when I did it faithfully. However, the cost is why I quit using it. I actually use a few AVON products now that keep my hormonal breakouts to a minimum.

  • Worked for me! And still does. Just find out how much of it you can take; can be a bit drying.

  • It works for me, but i do have to use a non-comedogenic lotion on top of the 3rd step because it makes my face really dry and flakey
