ProActiv made my skin worse. I tried it for about 3 1/2 mo. and then decided it wasn't working for me. I had mild acne and by the end of the trial, I had moderate acne. The products made my skin produce more oil and made my acne red and inflamed. My skin type was oily but sensitive at the time and the product was too harsh for my skin. Now I use milder products to control my acne. I use Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash followed by Clinique #1 Clarifying Toner, and I use Neutrogena Visibly Firm Moisture Makeup and Bare Minerals Powder Foundation for makeup. My skin has dramtically improved. I still have breakouts but not as worse as when I was using more products. A point I am making is that if you have sensitive skin in combination with acne, it is not always a good idea to use multiple or harsh products on your skin. Less is more for this skin type and you should try cutting out products from your regimen if you notice that your skin is more oily, irritated, and redder than before you used the products. Alot of people have the idea that "It gets worse before it gets better". i totallly disagree with this theory because my acne got better and never got worse after I started using the right products for my skin.
