Stay away from proactiv if you do not need it! I used to use it and yes, it worked for a while but when I realized how harsh it was for my skin and found out about all the chemicals in it, I stopped using it. I had decent skin before but after? I started to get little bumps on my forehead, than on my cheeks than my entire face was covered with white heads. Than the big welts of acne started. I have spent so much money on trying to fix my face because of it.<br/>Proactiv is good for SHORT TERM use. A month maximum, and only if you have very bad acne. Than get off of it. It's honestly not worth it.
