Does proactiv really work? And if it does, how much time should I use it?

Report as

The benzoyl peroxide in proactiv gets rid of acne by drying it out, but in the process it also dries your skin out. So it's sort of a lose-lose situation:either you have dry skin or acne.

It depends on your skin type and how severe your acne is it worked for me and all my friends that have used it. I use it every night in the shower and i have been for about 4 weeks now, but my acne started clearing up within the second week

my acne isn't very bad so i didn't see much results. so if your acne isn't all that bad i wouldn't waste your money.

I've been using it for about a month now, i noticed improvement in the first week but now I don't see any improvement. And person above is right, it drys out your skin alot!

I've used it works great. Over time it dries the skin. Once you get rid of acne then stop using. Company will keep sending you and charge credit card. Call them and stop shipment. Good luck.
