I am a grown 28 yr old women. I have adult acne that wont seen to clear. I havent tried Proactive but its probably the only thing I havent tried. I wanted to know if it really works, or if its one of "these" that will make my face will break out even more once I stop useing it. I dont want to spend money on one more treatment that doesnt work. Im frustrated ! Got suggestions ? Embarassed

Especially eHealthy
it works great1 but you could also see a dermotologist who can get rid of it for you by perscribing topical meds

So I think it works VERY well, but my skin is super sensitive, so I can only use it once a week maybe twice....
But on the plus side, I have just ordered more, and I have heard that it is slightly different, like not as abrasive. Its on its way and I will let you know.
BTW if you think about getting it, get it thru QVC.com its cheaper than going directly through Proactiv. Smile

Joke
Yeah Proactive is a joke. I don't barely any acne but when I do get it then I am embarrassed. So I tried it and to no avail it did not work. Instead it left my face oily and only gave me worse acne then I started out with. I was disgusting. But maybe this won't happen to you.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Its partly helpful. Its better to start clindamycin plus isotretinion combination at bed time.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
