Re: Pro Active?

it will help if your acne is not real severe. in my case i used it and it helped for 3 months and then stopped working. the renewing cleanser may be good for you if you just have surface acne on your back since it's kinda gritty and exfoliates and also has benzoylperoxide in it. maybe just try the cleanser by itself. personally i think the stuff is not strong enough to spend the money on it and you could get a better prescription bp wash cheaper if you have insurance. Ask doc about Benzac.
Either this or Proactiv should help a little at least for a while but don't expect it to be a permanent solution.

Re: Pro Active?

I dont have no insurance.....so I shouldn't buy Pro Active....cause I used for awhile but it didn't really do nothing for my face either. My acne on my back is worst then the acne on my face. I dont really have real bad acne on my face but its real oily. What should I do?

Re: Pro Active?

here is the way I see it with Pro Active which is what i just did. Buy it and try it for 2 months....if it works then great, if it doesn't work, then you can return the empty bottles for a refund. Either way you don't really lose.

Re: Pro Active?

it doesn't cost that much to go to a dermatologist i also have no insurance. it cost me $105 for the check up and the medicine it is expenisve. the septra ds 60 pills cost about $150 but i went to my uncle friend pharmacy and he sold it for me $28 dollars (hehe) but i hope this septra ds work for me.
