I saw the same thing at CVS yesterday ... it was beside Dermafina (which I have no idea if that works either) ... the first thing I said was "wow, proactiv is on the shelf now " But, upon a closer look, I realized it was ProAcne ... wonder if it's any good ???

Yes I saw the same thing at Walmart this weekend and was going to post a thread myself. The package looks exactly like proactive and is much cheaper, less than $20 for the set. If anyone has tried this please share the results!

Hmm, I wonder if it's at all related to Klear Action. You can do a search to find the ingredients and should be able to find this at your local Walgreens. It costs $20 and is 99.9999999% the same formula. The only discrepancy is a difference in dye and a larger sized toner.

I went yesterday and bought some of that klear action stuff at walgreens. I have been using proactive for a couple of years now and always seem to run out before the next shipment. so i thought i would try something else that i could just go pick up at the store myself for half the price. I have only used it two times so far and it feels the exact same as proactive, even smells the same. good find!!

Wow!!I really like this Kleer action stuff. It may bother some people, but for me i really dont mind that slight burning feeling when using products. My skin didnt do that with proactive. I think this stuff is a slight bit more potent. which for me is good. and the thing with proactive is, at least for me, I would use it sparingly so i didnt run out before my next shipment. well this stuff being half the price and able to pick up myself when i need it is great. I would recommend it if you like proactive. I am seeing some definite clearing.

Who would buy something called ProAcne. Name sounds like it gives you acne more than clearing it up.

Hows it working, mightymomma? I never liked ProActiv and it didnt work for me but just made my face greasy and more prone to breakouts.

So im wondering if ProAcne is really good then.. or the other product..

I have tried ProAcne. Hmm. It's ok. Works better than other stuff. I haven't tried ProActiv... but so far so good. I'm going to give it a bit more time. I've only been using it for a few days. I'm expecting it to get rid of most in about a week.

I have been using Proactiv for over a year and let me tell you, coming from someone that has fought cystic acne for 7+ years, THE STUFF WORKS! I saw Proacne in Walmart today and in the interest of saving a buck, I bought it. I thought 'well it looks the same, it probably works the same, too'. WRONG! Proacne and Proactiv have similar ingredients but they are different and Proacne left my face feeling filmy as if I had product built or residue left behind whereas Proactiv left my face feeling smooth and clean and oh so soft. I will definitely be returning my experiment tomorrow and picking up the real thing. Some things are just worth the extra.
