I have been using Proactiv for about 5-6 months now. Only recently have I REALLY been impressed with my face. I have mild acne, just wanted that perfect glowing skin. I've tried **everything** so I decided to try Proactiv. It takes a while, there are lots of steps every time you wash, and there are so many products it takes a while to find what works for you, but now my skin is really looking good. I wouldn't say my acne is gone, I still have the minor hard-to-see blemishes, but my skin IS glowing. I actually like the older version of the products, not the renewing. I wash and use the toner every morning and night, use step 3 only at night. My moisturizer is... on forehead: daily oil control (really works, I can tell if I skip that. On cheeks: skin lightening lotion - will probably switch to green tea there when this runs out it was a free sample. On rest of my face and neck: green tea moisturizer.
