Thumbs up for this product. My face did get alot better after a few weeks of using this product on alternate day(i will skip sometime when im too lazy). My acne have subside 40%, not so swollen red acne. I use it for at least 10 times and i still have half the tube, i did use generously. (like what they instructed) I have already bought 4 more tubes(2 mint julep,1 grape peel mask, 1 olive oil mask) I read some of the comments below, and it seems that there are some ingredient in the item which is not so good for us. I guess when i get rid of all my pimples(so far i never gotten rid of my pimples since puberty, i will stop using this. Or probably cut down the no. of time i use.
I got this item from the derm. I have ultra oily skin, acne prone, sensitive, you name it. This item did not help me at all. It seem pretty diluted :/ After washing my face with this, few hours later, there's will be a thin layer of what seem like sticky substance on the surface of the face. I went back to the derm, and she give me no explanation about this sticky thing. Using antibiotic, cream and washing the face with this for 6 months. No improvement at all, i gave up on this looking at hefty sum i spend on derm. Felt cheated. Really.
Generally, i would say proactiv did work for my acne. (Even spending hundreds going to derm to take antibiotics+products doesnt work that great for me) It did improve it (acne) quite abit, say 40% after 6 months of use.(It stay the same after that) After finishing the starter kit, i found a dup for only $11++ at walmart(Check it out! its called "Equate Acne Cleansing System"). Its really a deal, same ingredient, works the same. Maybe different in smell, bottle, texture. But who cares about all the exterior thing when they works. And probably 5 times cheaper. You just got ripped off :)
