I would give this stuff a try if proactive stopped working

This stuff is the best out there I think, better then anything a doctor will give you. However I can not use the program cause I can tolerate any of the company's toners but for others who have tired proactive and have had no problems with glycolic acid, benzoyl peroxide, and sulfur I would advise you to try this. See proactive is not a bad product but they expect that the strength they have will work on everbody, not the case. Also your acne gets stubborn and outwits your meds, see your skin builds a tolerance to things. Which like I have heard with ALOT of people, proactive worked in the beginning but then it stopped. The place is ABY skin care, their program is bascially based on BPO, sulfur, glycolic acid, lactic acid, and salycilic acid. They customize your strengths based on severit, what you have used in the past, and what you can tolerate. The place is ran by doctors, nurses, and aesthiticians (spelling I think is wrong on that word). You can get a few topical creams that are prescription cause a doctor works their without dealing with visits or insurance. Now this place has STRONG stuff. They offer up to 20% benzoyl peroxide, and 20% glyolic acid products. I wish I can tolerate their program cause my skin was SO SO SO clear with this, but found out that glycolic acid or lactic acid just BURNS my face. They have great customer service I MEAN GREAT. I have told 15 people, friends and family, about this program all who had proactive stop working and all of them and all are clear. I was clear but for 6 months was irritated. What I would do to be able to use this stuff. My face was flawless.
