Do you or have you used proactive?

I wash my face daily with clean and clear, I have tried several of their products. But since I have had my kids (4yo and 20mo) my face will NOT clear up! I am constanly broke out! I am thinking abotu trying proactive but I want to know if it's actually worth it? Did it work for you? is it worth the cost?

  • I tried it, it made my skin so dry after 2-3 days I had to stop using it. Hope you find something that works...have you seen a doctor about it?

  • Ever tried antibiotics? They helped me a lot...the creams they gave me were pretty harsh, I just Avon acne products because they're gentler on my skin.

  • I bought it to and it made my skin feel paper thin and it burned. It cleared up my skin for a couple weeks and then I broke out worse then ever before because of how harsh it was. I spent to much money on proactive and it didn't even help:(

  • I love it!!! I have had bad acne since I was 12yrs old. And I tried proactive and it was great. And I have not used proactive in 5yrs and my face is still clear, but if I do have a small break out I will use the proactive for a week and I will have clear skin in a matter of a week.
