I have been seeing people asking for opinions on Proactiv on forums and other blogs I tend to frequent, so I thought I would do a post on my experiences with it for those of you who may be wondering what the hype is about.
Truth be told, this product has more hype than a 3 year old on a sugar high. And what do those two things have in common? You want to get rid of them FAST.
I have used this product multiple times. Teen years, late teens and 20's. I have used the original formula, the "new and improved" formula, the extra strength formula and the sensitive skin formula. Each time, I used it for 3+ months. I really REALLY wanted to like this product. I mean, an end to acne would be amazing.
But...it didn't deliver. This really dried my face out and my face is really oily. It really didn't do anything for my acne. I had both cystic acne and whiteheads and neither seemed affected in any way. When I stopped using this product, however, my face broke out WORSE. It was horrible.
My sister also used this, as well as a few of my friends. They had pretty much the same experience as I had.
All in all, I would skip this product. You can try it, but don't say I didn't warn you! :-P
Have you tried this product? What did you think? Leave me a comment!
