  • hi there...we recommend to our patients to use cetaphil because when you are prego somethimes your skin might not react the same to certain products as it might of...also a good otc solution for acne surprisely is orginal phillips milk of will wash your face at night as normal and take either a cotton ball or clean finger tips and apply to face you will feel it tighten like a mask some people wash off after a few mins after you feel it tighten or you can sleep in it as well don't worry will not ruin sheets and just wash it off in the morning..and if you have fair skin you can put it on in the day time and apply your liquid foundation on top and have a matte look all day.also it can be use on just on the bump solution ..just like any product test it on your face just two to three times a week for the first week to make sure you don"t have a reaction..if if it works okay you can use it as regular as you need ,good luck

  • I'm pregnant and use it.  I used it long before I got pregnant, lol.  Yes it really works.  Just because it works for other people doesn't actually mean it will work for all though.  I have problems breaking out right before I start my period and when I'm pregnant.  ProActiv has been my life saver, lol.

  • I had a very stressful point in my life when I broke out like crazy. Proactiv saved me! :-)

  • It was a God send for me but after a couple years I became immuned to it. It just stopped working. But I def recommend it!

  • I never had any luck with Proactive. I've recently started using the Cetaphil anti-bacterial bar and it's worked wonders for my skin.

  • Worked for me. When I turned 30 I started breaking out like crazy. It's very drying though so make sure you get a good moisturizer

  • It worked for awhile for me--but then after about a year, it stopped working.

  • I tried the benzoyl peroxide version and my face broke out in a violent, red, itchy rash. A few years later, I tried their salicylic acid version cleanser, and I had the exact same reaction. Horrible.
