Has anyone used Proactiv Acne Treatment?

If you have, did it work for you and would you recommend it? Any problems with it? I don't have a serious problem but at my age (34) I hate dealing with the occasional breakouts. I didn't have any problems in my teen years and had a perfect complexion both times I was pregnant. I don't know what is going on now. I have tried many different over the counter things. They work for awhile but eventually have to find something else. Any feedback?

I used it a lot several years ago. I would tend to break out a lot on my chin. It did help. It was really expensive then, so I just bought it on occasion. I think the price is really good for it now...around $20 or something like that. A lot less than what I paid for it! It really helped my skin a lot and it is definately worth a try.

I have no confidence right cosmetics, no matter what I what kind of cosmetics, skin or, as before, will not change, instead of wasting money, if not from life to some of the details, such as drinking more water, eat more vegetables and fruits, maintain adequate sleep time. . .

Well I tried it years ago- 9 I think when I first had my daughter- I think it was not good- It made me face break out more than before- but I have a sensitive face- I sent it back for a refund- I now have an occasional break out- usually around my period time-- I'm 34 also- I use benzamycin (it's a prescription from the doctor) it's great- I put it on before bed and it usually clears my face right up. Acne stinks!

Its good for slowing reducing acne. You might still get a pimple here and there, but its much better than massive breakouts. A lot of friends and family noticed a difference with my face.

We bought Proactive for our daughter. It worked fairly good but she complained that it burnt when she used it and it cuased red marks on her skin. It was expensive at the time so we switched to Triclear which was cheaper and worked better and did not have any side effects .
