Skin Care Review: proactiv

by cmb, PA

Adverse Effects

probably works for people with very oily skin and severe acne

very harsh, dries your skin out

I decided to use this product, mainly for my chin area. I didn't have severe acne, but enough to make me self-conscious. This product made my face red and very dry. My nose actually peeled, and it took a couple weeks for that to clear up. I got my money back and would not recommend this for anyone with a minor acne problem or sensitive skin. I found that any product containing sacylic acid does this to my skin.I now use a snesitive skin face wash at night and an occasional clay mask-both from the drug store, and they seem to do the job pretty well.

do not use this if you have sensitive skin or only minor acne
