Has anyone started Proactive Plus? it's fairly new and I kinda of want to give it a shot, as it seems like based on the very few reviews that it might work... Anyone?

I've been on the Minocycline 100mg daily since April 2nd. I haven't seen any improvement in my skin since. It seems that everyone, whether it worked in the end or not, began seeing results almost immediately. Has any one else had a similar experience with Minocycline?

Hey everyone. So as a teenage girl with acne, I'm obviously obsessed with skin makeup. I've tried quite a lot, mostly drugstore to be honest. I don't have the money to go high end. But I tried all the drugstore foundations. And when I say all, I really mean all. Almost all were liquid, while some were powder. Which I think was my problem. Liquid foundation, while it looks fantastic on some people, just felt gross on me. Every time I'd touch my face, it would feel so caked on. It also felt and often looked  caked on. In the past year i decided to try something new and got mineral foundation. So far, I love it. If you want full coverage, this isn't for you. But if you want full coverage, you will always have that "caked on look", if you ask me.


There are a lot of different opinions on mineral foundation on here so I guess i'm just throwing mine out there too. I have mild-moderate acne and combination-dry skin. I don't like full coverage makeup at all on me. I would rather have a few flaws showing than be "the girl with the cake face". Just my opinion. Mineral foundation can give you little or medium coverage (I use medium). It won't cover all your flaws completely but just looks natural, which I LOVE.


I took a picture of my skin with mineral foundation just to show you. As you can tell, you can see a red bump on my nose, because like I said you won't have picture perfect skin. Also, I have blush on. I'm naturally really pale so if I don't have a little color on me I look dead.

So I had a dermatologist appointment today and he prescribed me minocycline. I was pretty excited until I came on here and saw some pretty horrible things about it. But the thing is, all of us have different skin types, different levels of severity, age, etc all makes a difference. I really don't want to take this pill and then get it later on again. 


I'm a 16 year old girl and have mild-moderate acne, with combination-dry skin. I'm very worried about minocycline, if any of you have taken it, pelase let me know what you thought of it.
