Proactive didn't do anything for me..... lol. I threw that piece of crap away and figured out something that ACTUALLY works. lmao!

I usually give a product anywhere from 2 weeks to 1 month.

If I have this gut feeling that it WILL work.......i'll stick to it for 1 month and 2 weeks.

Some products are SUPPOSE to make you break out before your skin gets clearer... like retinols.

But for proactive? If it hasn't worked for you in the past 2 months, It's not going to do anything...

For me I used to get so frustrated I would only give it two weeks :lol::lol::lol: Some mods here and other members had to knock some sense in to me. I finally have stuck to a product for almost two months.

I usually go for two-three weeks also. Sometimes, if I get a bad reaction immediately after using a product for two-three days, I immediately throw it out.

2-3 weeks..

Sometimes though I can tell I'm not reacting to something well, and I'll chuck it after a few days.
