Skin Care Review: Proactiv

by C, IL

Adverse Effects

Cleanser exfoliates skin, toner smells good

only works in the beginning and not worth your money

Proactiv does a wonderful job at advertising because the photos in the commercials and on the website look very real and because of that, I decided to try the product. It worked well at first, improving my skin tone within two weeks. But after a couple of months my skin seemed to go back to the way it was. I broke out every month while using Proactiv and when I did, it wasn't just a blemish here or there, my pimples were huge and they came in groups. One month I had a group (about 5 or 6) of pimples on my left cheek and the next month a group on the opposite side of my face. I used the cleanser, toner, and repairing lotion two times a day like it says, but it did not do much for me after prolonged use.

It has worked for some people but does not work for everyone.
