my gentle kit of proactiv came

If I'm not mistaken, the gentle/sensitive versions of Proactiv use salicylic acid instead of benzoyl peroxide, so it's completely different (not necessarily better or worse though). Who knows?

if they just replace benzoyl for salicylic acid, thats a ripoff...

i dont think SA is any more gentler than BP

Maybe you did have a problem with the BP. For me its the other way around... SA is hell on the skin, whereas BP has some positive effect (although minor).

Also.. I took proactiv for many months and never got depressed. I guess the depression is based around the big hope for a high profile solution.. but it didn't work.

Proactiv was good to me for about 6 months and then did nothing & wasn't worth the cash (after the first 6 months :)).
