Does Proactive Work?

I am sure that this potentially could be a question for a lot of people. When buying skin care treatments, many people are leary to spend a lot of money on something that may not work. Proactive seems highly advertised both in magazines and on tv. I have seen the stories of people who have used it on tv, but of course they make everything look worth it on tv. Has anyone out there tried it? What were your thoughts on it and would you recommend it to people?

For some people it works, for others it has no affect at all. I think people should give it a try and see if it works for them. It's not as expensive as it was when it came out and it bought directly from the company, they refund the product if it doesn't work.

I have heard that-it works great for some and others, it seems like a gimmick. Have you personally tried the product?

proactive did nothing for my face, but different strokes for different folks. it wasn't for my face texture. my sister had it did her face ok. it all depends on what you got going on with your face. i still like the old fashion way going to a derm. happy mylotting.........

So you did try Proactive, but it didn't work-so my question is were you able to find a comparable product that DID work for you?

I think Proactive is like anything else. It depends on the person's skin and their chemistry. My daughter tried it because she is at that age..and it didn't make a lot of difference for her. When she tried Neutrogena..she cleared right up.

Hmm...wel that is very good to know. I really like Neutrogena products too, and it seems to best out there over the counter. But then I think I saw a commercial recently for a line of products by Neutrogena that seems to be in competition with the Proactive line.
