I have been using only the Proactiv Repairing Lotion for many years now and not the full recommended set. So far, Proactiv has been giving me spotless complexion. If I don't use it for a few days, acne will surface again. Do you have this problem too?

Well, I didn't use Proactiv but I do have acne problem. I use mask to control my acne. Try to use some hydrating, cooling , calming or soothing mask. Hope this helps.

Hi paigegal. I use all kind of masks to control the sebum. Currently trying aspirin mask but not much of an improvement.

Maybe you should try other mask if the aspirin mask you're using now is not working.

I started using Proactiv about 2 months ago and my face really broke out during the first month. It seems to be working now but I ran out of it last week and went a few days without using it and now I have 3 huge pimples on my face. I don't have a huge acne problem but I'm using it because i've heard good things about it. It works OK but it's nothing to brag about.

Hi Melissa528. When I first used Proactiv, I could see results in 2 weeks. It has help to clear up spots on my face when no other brands could do it. Currently I only apply a thin layer of repairing lotion and a bottle can last me 4 to 6 months.

Hi sernen since you have mentioned that is has been giving you spotless complexion, then just continue using it. Don't stop if you have discovered that not using it for a few days will bring back the problem. I have been an avid user of ProActiv for 8 months now and I have never stopped. Now that I have found this wonder product that works well for me, I will never let it go.

I have used aloe vera succesfully-its natural and you just mix the juice of its plant with any cream and apply on your face only half a spoon of jusice mixed with small amount of cream shpould be enough. Its natural and healthy and has long term effects.

I currently use the whole set and have found that if I go any length of time without it, I will flare up again. My skin is very oily and for the oil I have found that Proactiv's sulfur mask helps control that to some extent. I am surprised Proactiv has worked as well as it has as I usually get hormonal acne along the jaw and chinline which are very difficult to treat and I have heard some bad reviews on Proactiv.

I'm using the complete set... but the mask which is for free according to them, worsens my acne that's why I'm no longer using it.. Like in your case, for me it's effective but if you stop using it, acne will pop up again.
