I bought the three step system containing this for the first time in November of 2007, and continued use for six months. For the first 3 weeks, my skin was red, dry, tight and flakey although admitidly acne free. For the next three months I had a clear complection. After 4 months of use however, it's effictiveness gradually decreased. By six monts it was just irritating my skin and causing more breakouts. I haven't been using ProActiv for about 8 months, and I don't miss it. Thumbs down.

The proactiv 3 step program did not work for me. I purchased it because I kept getting acne/pimples in my cheek area that would go away and come back. Proactiv would iritate my skin and never really cleared the pimples. I had dry patches. Maybe my skin is too sensitive for this product and I know everyone reacts different.

I've used this for years. I used to be allergic to BP (Benzoyl Peroxide) so I was afraid to try it, but it had a much lower dosage than what I was used to so it worked great, no itching, no redness, nothing but clear beautiful skin. Then just recently my face has gotten really itchy whenever I tried it. And thinking back it's been this way for a few years but slowly grown into chaos this past year whenever I used it. Won't buy anymore!

I have a love hate relationship with this product. I only used this and not the rest of the system. Also the type I tried is the ulta strength type. The product is expensive. The top of what I have used a bit of stretch if your a young adult. I use it on my pimples and ity does work. It helps dry them up within a night. There is not a 100% clear up but if you have a lrage breakout it will help clear it up enough so you can hide it wiht makeup or go natural even. However, this stuff does nasty stuff to my skin. If it gets on the skin where there is no acne it will turnmy face red and burning for a day. I have to carefully put small amounts on amd hope it doesn't smear when I sleep.

I've been using the Proactiv system for about 4 years, and have to say it's the most effective acne line I've used. I had tried Murad, MD Formulations, PanOxyl, as well as prescription only products. I remember that the Proactiv caused a lot of sensitivity at first, and I had to use only once a day. It also took a couple of weeks to see the benefits. It has banished my large pimples, smoothed my skin, and really made my skin brighter. I will still get the occasional hormonal zit, but not nearly to the extent I used to. And, it goes away so much faster! My problem with using this line is that they don't have more effective anti-aging products.

It seemed to work ok at first but my skin ended up drying out so much that it was getting flaky. It was disgusting. I had to get an extreme moisturiser and plaster it all over my skin as often as i could. I would never buy any Pro Active products again.

am not sure if it's the lotion or the cleanser or a combination of both.....but it burnt my face (i typically don't have sensitive skin)....but the proactiv system was too harsh on my face....

UPDATE: my boyfriend has been using the proactiv system for almost 4 months now...and it has cleared up his mild acne entirely....his face is very clear now....he wud give this 4 lippies..
so, i guess it does work:):) just not for everyone:(:(

This lotion didn't do anything for my acne. It didn't clear up the zits that I already had and it didn't prevent new ones from appearing. What a disappointing waste of money.
