Proactiv - Hype Or Secret Acne Fighting Weapon?

Author : Tina Walsh

Proactive is all the rage these days and is backed with hype from some big ticket celebrities like Katy Perry and Jessica Simpson. Proactiv Solution was first conceived by Dr. Kathy Fields and Dr. Katie Rodan. It is chemically formulated to deal with various acne conditions including those with facial hair or very sensitive skin. Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields, the product creators, created the product out of that unhappy personal acne experience which led them both to become dermatologists. They wanted to assist patients who were going through the same problems they experienced and so Proactiv was 'born' in 1995.
Acne can be a tough problem to beat, and as a result most treatment products receive mixed reviews. Proactive is no different. Rest assured it has both positive and negative reviews and for acne, that's actually quite understandable. The three step system has earned its share of good reviews as well as negative ones. Overall, however, the majority of reviews related to the products are quite positive. It boasts an overall success rate of around 85%.
Consumers who are interested in purchasing Proactive have the choice between kits and individual products. A typical 30 day trial of the treatment is enough to tell which products are right for you and whether you are going to see any sort of sizeable results.
Another important question with any skin care product is the guarantee. Proactiv consumers are given a total of 60 days to return any unused or remaining product.
There are always potential side effects to be mindful of. A few people report that Proactiv irritates their skin. This is due to benzoyl peroxide which is the principle acne-fighting ingredient in Proactiv. If you have very sensitive skin, you could possibly experience itchy skin or redness. It is best to combine Proactive with a good moisturizer and don't overuse it.
The average Proactive user has mild to moderate acne and will see the skin clearing within the first few weeks. Since results vary so widely between each user, buy the smallest amount of the product that is available.
I ordered proactiv and have never gone back. Though there has been a time when I tried using only the face wash/scrubby stuff but it isn't strong enough by itself and I started to break out again. The key really is using the three steps together. Once you get used to it, it's not so tedious to have to go through all three steps. I'm 28 now. I rarely breakout and they're SO much smaller now and really can be attributed to 'that time' of the month. Everyone gets a blemish now and then, but no one should have to live with them every day. We're a household of proactiv users, as my boyfriend uses it daily as well.

For the price I wouldn't hesitate to go and try it for a couple months. I know it's NOT super cheap, but now knowing how it works, I would pay double in a heartbeat.
