Skin Care Review: ProActiv Skin Care System

by Kristina Williams, Denver, CO USA

Adverse Effects

Perhaps works for people with VERY oily skin.

Dried out my skin - red, raw, and irritated. Had no effect on the acne situation.

This was a completely frustrating and miserable experience. I have a fair complexion and combination skin. Recently, I started having trouble with acne around my jawline and on my forehead. After seeing the advertisements for ProActiv, I was very optimistic and excited to try it. It was HORRIBLE! The products were very irritating, making my face tight and dry. I decided to stick with it for a while to see if things improved. Eventually my skin became very red and inflamed. I finally had to discontinue using it. The money-back gurantee was a plus, however. Other than my pain and suffering, some dignity, and shipping, this experiment didn't cost me anything.

Not for people with even slightly dry skin.
