I bought it from the mall sad.gif

i dont think i can get a refund because on the receipt it says

"if you are not satisfied with this product for any reason just return all 3 full bottles for a full refund!"

keywords.. "3 FULL bottles"

lmao..

Take another look at that receipt...ProActive has a good refund policy. If you didn't use some of the product...you wouldn't know if you liked it or not. So, you wouldn't know if you wanted to return it or not. They couldn't possibly expect you to return FULL bottles.

Also, 2 weeks is not enough time to know if ANY products are going to work for you. Many topicals, including BP Gel will cause you to break out a little at first.

If you go switching products every 2 weeks, your face could end up a lot worse than when you started.

I've watched those proactive infomercials, and I remember hearing that you can return the bottles for a full refund even if they're empty. Even though they didn't work for me, I don't think any product can give results in just 2 weeks.

I've used Proactiv in the past. The best part of this product set is the scrub. The toner and the lotion are worthless. The toner is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) solution that's supposed to help exfoliate. The last time I used it, I got red and inflamed and my skin burned. The lotion is highly waxy and seems to build up on the skin (even though it's supposed to be light and also not supposed to be comedogenic.. although it does contain Benzoyl Peroxide). The scrub also contains Benzoyl Peroxide. This is both good and bad.

The Benzoyl Peroxide is supposed to kill the bacteria that causes acne (and I suppose that it does). But, it also stinks horribly (because of the concentration levels). Worse, if you have colored towels, you better rinse for a very long time unless you want your colored towels to become bleached out (and it will). Alternatively, I suggest using only white towels when using Proactiv.

I've also found that Proactiv does work if you use it in moderation (not every day). Using it every day is just too aggressive for some people and can actually make the acne worse rather than better.

However, I have since graduated from Proactiv and I now make my own product from drugstore ingredients (doesn't contain Benzoyl Peroxide) that's easily as effective (if not more effective) and cheaper.

Proavtiv stinks! There are cheaper over the counter stuff 100x better than it. All I do is but a face cleanser and after I wash with that I wash with the pore unclogging cleasner + oil control and then some 10% Clearasil BP cream
