I used it for a year or so. I really only saw a difference a couple of months into it and then towards the end of the year it did not work at all. I now use the Tea Tree Oil line from The Body Shop. I like the facial wash, scrub and mask.

I heard too many Proactiv horror stories so I decided to try the Patricia Wexler, MD acnostat line from Bath and Body works. I use the scrub twice a day, the night lotion and the spot treatment. I still have a few pimples, but over all my skin is WAY healthier and clearer looking. And if you don't like it, you can take it back for a refund/exchange.

I used it back a couple years ago and it worked wonderfully.  I was to the point where I wanted to cry when I looked in the mirror each morning because there was a new nasty pimple thing looking at me.  It got it under control thank goodness.  Now if I feel a "tumor" zit coming on (the ones that thump when you bend down) I put Neosporin on it. It doesn't stop it from coming it helps quite a bit in making it's life MUCH shorted.  You should try it.

I forgot, I finally went to the dermatologist and got a percription for Ziana, which is a clear cream, and so far it's worked for me :-)

Ama - my skin has never been THAT bad, but I've been getting some wedding stress acne for the past six months or so. I've never really had to use anything other than a normal, medicine-free cleanser and toner to keep my skin clear, so I figured I didn't need any strong medicine. Anyway, about 2 months ago, I finally said, 'Fuck this. I know it's not that bad, but I feel like I'm 16 again and I do NOT want pimples on my face for my wedding when I haven't had them in ten years!' So I got some Proactiv and it worked WONDERFULLY. It dried my skin out a little at first, so I adjusted my routine. I only use it once a day - it dries my skin too much if I use it twice like they tell you to. 

Anyway - my skin really wasn't very bad, so I can't say whether another product wouldn't have worked, but Proactiv has worked well for me. It got rid of my stress zits, anyway - Whoohoo!

Hello I also use proactiv and when you first use it, it does bring pimples to the surface, I asked a good friend of mine who went to a study when it 1st came out and she stated she was told that it was suppose to do that. It will bring everything to the surface 1st and cure it and as you cont. to use it you will see it really start to work. Now I do not use it every day I use it 3 times a week and between usage I wash my face daily with Netrogena soap. My mom tells me all the time that she can tell the difference in my face.
