I used Dan's products and regimen for a long time and saw a definite improvement, but still had a few active pimples at any given time. Well I was always against Proactiv because of the negative things I had heard about it not working, etc etc. I decided to give it a try because if it didn't work, I could go back to Dan's regimen to control it to an extent. Well amazingly enough it has worked for me. I have maybe one active pimple at all times, though it does dry your face out a lot, so make sure you have a good moisturizer (I still use Dan's because all the others don't work well for me at all).

Now I just hope this Bio-Oil takes care of my red marks :cool:

Congrats. Personally, I hate proactive. For a company that trys to help people out so much, they really make my life miserable. They play those fucking 2 minute long commericals ALL the time, and it humiliates me when I'm with a group of friends. Jerks... as if everyone doesn't already know about them.

On top of that, it didn't do crap for me. Just left me with dry skin

They do advertise way too much..

I plan on trying a little test here before too long and slowly coming off Proactiv and not doing anything else to see how my skin reacts. I'm turning 20 and that seems to be a common age where people who have had acne as teens tend to clear up, so I'm going to see just how much the Proactiv is working

It is quite drying, but I found ways to keep it to a minimum.

And I haven't heard much about that ZAPZYT, let us know what happens :cool:

I started proactiv a few days ago and I haven't woken up with any new pimples yet. My complexion is also improving.

Haven't experienced and peeling yet but the toner stings pretty badly when you apply it. After it dries + adding BP + adding the moisture + 30mins later my skin feels nice.

Lots of work... but I'm feeling confident that this is going to work. My acne is pretty mild and I feel this is the last thing to kick it in the bud and finish it for GOOD!

Just hope it does something about the ones that are under the skin...

Any proactiv users know when the peeling is supposed to begin?
