I purchased that Proactiv Mild Exfoliating Peel, been using it for about 2 months now.

Is there any reason I would continue to break out in the applied areas? I realize that it may take a month for my skin to settle...but for some reason my chin has been breaking out (even though i never apply exfoliator in this area)...and the areas I apply it on have been breaking out nonstop as well, for about 2 months now...

Any reason for this? Should I just stop using the product.....

Since your chin breaks out where u don't apply it, the exfoliator is not the reason for breakouts. On the other hand, since the exfoliator does nothing to stop breakouts where you apply it in the course of two months it means its useless and I would stop it if I was you.

As far as Mild Exfoliators go, is every other day reasonable?

It IS mild, so i figure every other day should clean out all the pores and do its job.

Technically it has cleared up my pores a little..but it's also done damage, maybe I should use it a little more before i make a final decision on another purchase.

Thoughts?
