I just broke out horribly about two weeks ago. My entire cheek was just a huge acne rash. I used this every day for 4 days straight (applied a very thin layer for 10 minutes every night) and I literally saw a huge difference every single day. It was soothing and so helpful.
Please put moisturizer on right after you wash it off though! It can be very drying. My skin is really used to it, though. Give it a try! :)
My review on overall proactiv:
Cleanser: Face is pretty much addicted. Tried to get off, horrible withdrawals. Back on it now.
Toner: Doesn't feel like it does enough. It just dries out my face.
**NEW lotion**: SUCKS. Burns my skin, irritates, reddens. The old one rocks :) I still have some left. It doesn't burn at all and it makes the acne go away fast.
Give Proactiv a try; and buy it off of eBay or Amazon. It's so much cheaper!
