Hey guys/gals. I just got that Acne medication pro-active. Even thou I dont have acne (I usually get pimples around my period time) I just wanted to see how it works so it stops those I-just-want-to-piss-you-off pimples. Does anyone have or use it? If so, how did it work for you? Do you like it? Yes or no? Why?

Thanks folks!!

Yes, my aunt recommended it for my sister and it really does work. However, like most new acne treatments, it can really irritate your skin before it gets used to it. So, start using it when you aren't gonna be out of the house for a while or you have lots of moisturizer handy. Use moderately!

Well, thanx girlie. Im usually always outta the house. So I guess I will just take the moisturizer with me. I usually get dry skin on my forhead and chin, when I wash my face. Thats more in the winter than the summer thou. Does anyone reccommend a certain kind of lotion?

I use it, and I absolutely LOVE it! I really do think that it's worked very well for me, and my best friend has had even better results than I have. But beware, there's a possibility that it will bleach out your towels and stuff, so be a bit careful.

You can order it from the TV infomercial, or from the website, or sometimes from malls. I buy mine from a stand in a local mall.

My mom ordered it from the infomercial. I started using it, it seems pretty good. It makes my skin feel good. The funny thing is, that after I use that lotion after I wash my face, it seems like my face gets warm, does that happen to anyone else that uses this?

I used Pro-Active for a year or so, but it never really cut it for me. It worked a little bit, but I just found something else that works better. I guess it all depends on your skin type, you know? I wish I would have tried different things instead of just staying with one that didn't work for me. I use Cetaphil, and it works wonders for my skin!

I only use it at night, because I am afraid that my skin will dry up really bad. And really it hasnt dried up my skin at all, it actually looks better. I did get a couple pimps but thats just my face getting used to the treatment.
