It's been years since I used this, but it did for me what I believe it does for most of us- it made my skin look great for a while, then it seemed not to work as well, all the while bleaching my towels and pillowcases and clothes. Sure enough, I was bleaching my skin right along with all my belongings and bleaching your skin prematurely ages it. My skin regrets pro-activ more than the decade of reckless tanning I subjected it to during my twenties. This stuff is the devil.

My sister actually used this to clear up her severe acne. It slowly started to work. Pro-Activ then automatically sends you the 3 step solutions monthly, even if you didn't ask for it. Which...is ok, but it's pricey.
Now this works for most people, as long as you use it. So then once your skin is clean, you think "Oh, I can probably stop using it." and just buy a cheaper, drugstore acne treatments. But then the acne returns, so you have to use Pro-Activ again.
I'm pretty sure they do this so they get money. True, it does clear up your acne, but once you stop using it, you started to get your red face again.
Not only that, the lotion for step 3 is made with benzoyl peroxide, so it bleaches everything you touch. Now that just sucks.
If you want to clear up your acne fast, use Pro-Activ. But remember, once you stop using it, them acne will come back again. It will cost you money, and your clothes will be bleached, and you get tempted by looking at their cataloug, etc. There's more con's than pro's.

HATE this product! I'll admit it helped to clear things up, at first. But then it made my skin so dry! To top it off, the products bleached all of my towels, washcloths, and pillowcases. They also tried to keep charging me after I had canceled! It took me three months to finally sort things out with their company and I had to threaten with legal action! I would never recommend any company that makes you keep your credit card number on file so that they can charge you every month. What a scam.

I was using Pro Activ during my teenage years and it did wonders for me. Years later I started to break out again and went back on Pro Activ and it was the worse thing ever. My skin got worse after using the product. It just doesnt make since.

this cleared my skin up really well, but u have to do it mornin and night and if i skip i start breakin out but most ppl don't have terrible skin lik me i guess, overall it worked really well, but they bill u $20 a month each month but only send it to u once every 2months. it takes a while to use up a whole bottle, which i guess is a good thing. overall its great

I have used this product for eight years and have had people comment on my beautiful skin - I have had breakouts since 5th grade so this was something new to me. For the first time in my life I could go without makeup - my skin looks fantastic. I don't think it is for everyone, but I'd recommend trying it. I don't think I can live without it! My only complaint is that it bleaches all my towels!

i felt the need to review this because i can't watch cable tv without seeing a commercial about this annoying thing.
to get right to the point, i think proactiv either clears up most of your acne, or it won't work for you at all.
it didn't help my acne, but i have moderate to severe hormonal acne, so maybe it works for those with mild and skin that isn't sensitive, who knows?
what i do know is that my friend has used this religiously for years and he has a clear face with the occasional pimple once in a while. if you want to see the complete effect it has on your face, i think you have to stick with it for a few months.

oh my goodness. this made my skin soooo much worse. my acne was never BAD... i had a few breakouts here and there so i decided to give this a try. what a mistake. i started breaking out like crazy, but i thought maybe it was one of those "it gets worse before its gets better" kinda things...except it never got better. aside from all the pimples/blemishes, it dryed my skin out really bad, so i decided to try the "gentle formula" but that was no different. so there goes 80 bucks down the drain....darn.

Well there are pros and cons.
First of, the reason i bought this product was to get rid of blemishs/pimples. At the moment this product has been really good, it has stopped me from breaking out.
But then again, my skin has become SO flakey, my makeup looks like crap because of that.
I don't use it anymore...It stopped working.
