I would buy this again and again. It glides on my skin easily and absorbs quickly. I am left with no stickiness. This is not a moisturizer but a treatment so I need to apply a moisturizer after this absorbed. I only use this at night because it is too drying for me to use twice a day in the winter. It might be ok to use twice a day in the summer because I do get oily. This is the step that I don't skip out of all three. I eliminate the toner because the toner makes me itch and oily. The cleanser is nice to use twice/three times a week. I can't exfloliate more than that or I would start to break out because it irritates my skin. I love proactiv and I wish I know what to do with the toner.

This is the first and only thing that cleared up my face and I've been using it for well over a decade. I can't compare it to the new stuff that's out there, but this saved me from all that acne embarrassment that really haunted me during my teens.

I used this on a regular basis but only during the day as a lotion. It seemed to do very little. Then I decided I would use it day and night. And it seemed to really work at first! After a couple weeks, my skin was clearing up like magic. Then it happened... my skin was breaking out BADLY, getting cysts (which I hadn't gotten in a long time), and my skin was generally getting unusually very oily. My pillowcases were getting bleached from wearing it at night. And it started to give a mild burning sensation when applied. So I stopped it altogether. Now my skin has calmed down and is far less oily. I suggest NOT using this twice a day, if at all, unless your skin can handle it.

This stuff is ok, but i dont' think i'll be repurchasing. they call it a lotion, but it didn't moisturize my skin. it might've did some "repairing" for my skin but not anything so special that i noticed.

i kind of want to give this four lippies b/c it DID help me clear up initially last summer when i had quit using the obagi nuderm after 5 months of continuous breakouts. but i did find that if i did not use a moisturizer with this, my face broke out more. the scent gave me a headache but it would have been bearable had the product been not so inconsistent.

God I get misty-eyed from writing this review. Well, I would not buy this again, threw it out when it got to 30% left. At the beginning, it worked fine for me, it stung everytime I would apply it and then after three weeks, I started getting the cysts, and it was just horrible, I decided to go on, and see how it would progress in the fourth week, but it only made it worse. Apart from it inviting more zits, a lot of my clothes and bedsheets and towels got stained. Definitely a nightmare. :(

GRRRR! that is what my face said after i put this on. I was in tears because of how bad this burned my face. I am scared to let this touch it and all this happended two years ago.

well... maybe I would buy it again. It works GREAT for my skin, but I've been having eye problems. I put vaseline around my eyes to try to protect them, but it doesn't seem to be working... red, itchy swolen eyelids. No problem with the rest of my face, though. Does anyone have any pointers on how to protect eyes from this stuff? I also seem to be having headaches/eyeaches and wonder if it's connected. I don't want to make assumptions and would be interested to hear if anyone else has experienced any of this.

Is good but not the best. I see a little difference.

I used 1 and 1/2 bottles of this and then stopped. It was a nice, light moisturizer that didn't cause extra problems, but I don't know if it really helped to stop my pimples. I had my acne under control for a while, then I moved to a cold, dry climate. I continued to use the lotion, but it didn't stop cysts and nodules from forming. I decided to try other things and to stop using benzoyl peroxide b/c it produces free radicals. Check my notepad for my regimen.
