Proactiv worked really, really well for my girlfriend, who had serious, scarring acne. It virtually cleared her completely. I tried it, and it really burned my skin (the toner in particular) and made my skin very red, dry and leathery. It didn't clear my skin that well, either, although I really couldn't use it every day because it was too irritating. My girlfriend did't find it to be irritating at all. It just goes to show you that different things work for different people.
The one thing that's tough is that there's only a 30 day guarantee on most products, and that's usually not really long enough to see results. It can take months to really see clearing. Even the prescription Differin says it takes 12 weeks to work.
