Discussions that mention benzoyl

Acne board


proactive is no miracle its just over priced drug store products. They are just the first company to aggresively market their products as a "system" the same products are sold for much cheaper at the drug store but separately. If I were you I'd try to find out the active ingrediance in each proactive step and compare them to the stuff at the drug store and use the drug store products they same way you'd use proactive,

Here are the ingredients to proactive:

Renewing Cleanser: active ingredient 2.5% benzoyl peroxide

revitalizing toner: does not list the active ingredient but the first ingrediant is gylcolic acid so get a Glycolic acid toner cuz that is the active ingredient.

Repairing lotion: Active ingredient 2.5% benzoyl peroxide

hope this helps its just that proactive is a lot of money, I tried it and it did not work for me and I wasted over $100 on products I could have bought for cheap. It is worth a try cuz it has worked for a lot of people, but there is no need to pay that rediculous price.


you can find all of these at the drug store
