I have used Proactive

I know some people had questions re: proactiv on some previous posts. I have used proactiv for 3 years and it really has worked for me. I have mild/mod acne depending on the time of the month. I only use the face wash once a day and I do not use the cream for is too strong for me. The oil free lotion is what I use after washing my face....proactiv sells this in their catalog. I also use the oil reducing lotion and before I put on my lotion and that really helps if you have oily skin. I have had luck with if you haven't tried's worth a shot. You can schedule when and what you want in your shipments as well...they don't always have to come every 6 weeks. Hope this helps

No I don't drink a lot of milk. I do drink a lot of water though and have found that helps.

proactiv didn't work for me. I use phisoderm face wash (the clear one not the white one!) and clean and clear dual action moisturizer. proactiv didnt make my face less oily. i also use clean and clear oil absorbing sheets (those blue ones)

Re: I have used Proactive

proactive worked GREAT on me for about a month and a half.. then i somehow just all of a sudden got allergic to it.. the areas around my eyes would swell and my skin got all itchy. =( wish it kept working... same thing happened to a couple of my girlfriends.. anyone else have this problem?
