I have used proactiv and really liked it. I did build up a tolerance for it so it stopped working as well. I switched to a Mary Kay line for normal to oily skin and that also worked. I switch them up so I dont get to tolerant to either one. I also like the neutrogena wave. I use that if I am in a hurry.

My daughter used Proactive for about a year. It didn't work any better than any other acne product out there...I'll tell you what it DID do though....BLEACHED my BRAND NEW TOWELS!!!

I don't know if she wasn't rinsing her face well enough after using Proactive, or what the deal was...but my towels were ruined.

I used it for the four years I was in high school, and loved it!  I couldn't afford it once I moved out on my own, but by then I didn't really have the skin problems I had when I was younger.  The only thing I didn't like was that I would use it everyday, and what they sent lasted longer than the month they say.  So, when you do the direct order, where they automatically send it to you every 30 days, you wind up with more than you can use.  Once I did cancel my plan, I had enough stored up to last over 6 months!!
