If anything, Pro Activ made my skin break out even more. I have found that this product works for some and not others. I also think its results vary on how long you are able to put up with bad skin before you begin to see signs of good skin as it makes your skin worse in the beginning, and supposedly improves it thereafter.

I used this product until all the bottles of my first set was empty gone. I am sorry that I didn't save my info to get a refund on these products.
It did not improve my skin in any matter, so far as I can tell.
I received another kit in the mail from them and promply marked RETURN TO SENDER on the package and dropped it off at the local post office. I think they got the message, I have not recevied anything from this company since.

At first, I thought I finally found it. The cleanser, out of the three products, seemed to be doing the most work--even though the smell kind of bothered me. The cleanser didn't sting or irritate, and seemed to really get past the dead layer of skin with the grains it uses. However, the lotion was just another watery acne lotion that you can find in any drugstore. Ditto for the toner. Waste of money.

This did not work for me. I tried almost everything and nothing seemed to work until I finally tried Murad. I think that Pro Activ and everything else only works depending upon the person. It wasn't too irritating but it did make my skin dry out which it promises not to do. I'm not saying don't try it, I'm saying I'm one of the ones it didn't work for. Vice versa for Murad.

I almost see how they could've had a lifetime customer out of me..a blemish fighting product that CAUSES more blemishes, hopefully causing YOU to buy more! Thank God I caught on ;p After hearing miracle stories on tv I heard this little voice in my head...It told me that if something works soo well for people with acne, it'll work even better for people who just break out once in awhile! Right? NOOOO! This dried out my skin like it's never been dry before. The cleanser didn't seem so bad, the smell was ok and it was rather thin with little granules in it. The toner smelled like feet and STUNG like a bee. The repairing lotion should have it's name changed to skin drying lotion. I used this as faithfully as can be done for close to 3 weeks and noticed that not only was my skin as dry as death valley, but that for the first time in my life I had acne. Maybe I read wrong, but I didn't think that was supposed to happen. My now, once immaculate porcelin skin has scars from zits that this fabulous system has caused. I got my money back and pitched a fit, only to get some more free proactiv which was promptly sold on Ebay. I would never buy this ever again and if there was such a thing as a negative rating this has earned it.

When I ordered these products many moons ago from the infomercial, I expected a miracle cure. Big mistake. I had oily skin in my t-zone w/breakouts and cystic acne along my jawline. These products made my skin extremely tight and dry after the first night. When I woke up the next morning, my face was red, irritated, flaky and itched ALL OVER! I know skin needs a week or two to adjust to a new product, but I just couldn't use it again and pitched it. It took me three weeks to get my skin back to its previous condition and finally stopped itching after about a week. I've tried a lot of skin care lines since then and now use natural skin care products...what a wonderful difference they've made. I'm glad to see it works for so many others, it is just way too harsh for my skin.

This almost made me believe that there is a god. This has saved my skin from any future cigarette looking burns of acne. Hallelujah!

I used this product through out High School. It seemed to work a little bit-But I wouldn't call it a miracle. Over time it made my skin dry-and just didn't seem to work. Blemishes would clear up as others were forming--it was just an on going cycle-This product is just OK. I canceled the monthly delivery about 6 months ago so-no I wont be buying this again. Update: I've gone back to this and my skin is looking better-I dont use the cleanser though-its too harsh. The Repairing Lotion and the Toner I use now regularly.

I used the whole system day and night for the 1st few days and found it to be very drying. However, I must say that it does really work on those troublesome zits I used to get around my chin. I think I'll just use the Renewing Cleanser when my skin screams for that added 'oomph'. The scent can also be improved! The toner really 'STINKS'--LITERALLY!!

didn't work that much for me, but I didnt have any big break outs. but when my boyfriend tried this, you could see a BIG difference! His acne marks really faded and it keeps his skin a lot clearer than before.

I used this daily for a few years with good results. It took around 6 months for my skin to be perfectly clear. The cleanser is actually more of a scrub, which has benzoyl peroxide. The toner is soothing, and smells good. It has glycolic acid to help exfoliate. The bp lotion is mild and hydrates the skin and has a nice, fresh scent.After a few years though, the products just didn't work for me anymore. I became sensitive to them(I'd get red, itchy). Although, I can use Sage's bp, just not Proactiv's. I think these products are worth a try if you're struggling with breakouts, to at least see how your skin responds. But, I would NOT rec. this for sensitive skin at all.

I absolutely luv it!!!!! Saved me from those horrible acnes...n it's surprisingly cheap. My skin cleared up within few mths and since then i can't live w/o it.

i thought it was fantastic. despite the fact that my face was relatively clear, i could still tell the difference as it wiped off all the past scars and the zits. however, it made my skin a bit dry after use. the price is also a bit too expensive. for girls with combination skin like mine, i suggest using it once a week with the refining mask.

Even thinking of this product is enough to make me depressed. I had just a few zits on my face before proactiv. Initially it seemed like it was working. Then the trend reversed and at the end of two months there were hardly any areas on my face where I didn't have acne. The acne is gone now, but its left behind enough reminders of my foolish decision to try proactiv. Every time I see the infomercial its enough to make me sad and angry at the same time. Its not worth taking a risk with Proactiv.

I LOVE this stuff. I've had a problem with acne for most of my teen years, and my dad bought me this stuff when I was 16, and it cleared my face RIGHT up. i still use it, but not as much, because i can go without it now a lot without my face breaking out :)

I'm giving this 5 lipsticks if only because when I turned 23 and my skin went from a lifetime of being flawless to being so out of control that my mother called up to order the ProActiv for me... it actually worked and "saved" my face. Now, I've been a cosmetic fiend my whole life and I think my skin morphing into a demon incarnation of itself was purely hormonal. Still, the ProActiv was able to work and work well. Yet, after a few months it didn't seem to have the same effect and dried my face quite badly. At that point I incorporated additional products back into my regime and would trade off with the ProActiv, sort of weaning myself off over the next few years. I still get items once and awhile through swapping and its nice to know I have it on hand... ready to rescue my face if ever my skin should mutiny again.

I have been using this for about 3 weeks now, and I do see an improvement. My skin is not perfect, but it is better. I also find that my breakouts clear up faster than when I am not on it. I like this more than any prescription stuff i have used because it doesn't dry my skin out. It is worth a try if your acne isn't responding to other meds. I also use the oil free spf, which I love.*********** EDIT: It has now been about two months, and I love this system. My skin has never looked better, and it is so smooth. I even get compliments now, which would have never happened before proactiv.

I have been using ProActiv for two and a half months and, so far, I am sold! My skin definitely looks better (one of my brothers even commented). I almost quit using the products after a week because my skin was so dry. Instead of giving up, I changed my routine. I started using more moisturizer and began using the products once per day. Plus, I use smaller amounts of everything.
I have tried Proactiv a couple of times in the past but my face always looked red. Now, my face looks pretty even (if I could just get rid of all the scarring) and feels smooth. I still break out, but not nearly as bad as before. I don't get the big breakouts in clusters (usually around my chin) that I used to get before.
This system may make your skin very dry, so start slowly. I have normal skin and it's a bit dry since I've been using Proactiv.
I recommend anyone who suffers from acne to try Proactiv.

This stuff was quite harsh on my not-so-sensitive oily skin although I did see some improvement right away. I sent them back after one week of use since my face end up itchy every where.

I have oily, acne prone skin and feel like I've tried everything to clear it up. I was surprised that within the first month of trying this my skin did improve. After about four or five months though, all my same old skin problems returned. I think this is a great product for people with mild to moderate acne. My biggest gripe with this is I had a horrible experience with the company. They automatically send you products every other month or so and I didn't go through them that fast. I had to send some back and I NEVER got reimbursed, even after repeatedly calling customer service. First it was lost in the mail, etc. Watch out for these people. I won't order from them again.
