My Proactiv review
I started getting acne in 4th grade, and it has plagued me ever since. I have tried everything, REALLY. Clean & Clear, Acne Free, Mary Kay, Neatrogena, and so much more. All of them failed to cure my acne, some even made it worse. I was starting to give up hope.
Late one night i was watching the 3:00am ads on tv, when a Proactiv commercial appeared on tv. I saw Jessica Simpson talking about how much she loves Proactiv and how well it worked, i would've laughed at guilible ads like this, but i was actually kinda interested in this. I did some research and found so many good reviews on it, and i was just about ready to try anything to get rid of my acne.
I ordered the Proactiv online (i don't trust the tv numbers), and it came in the mail 4 LONG weeks later. I started using it right away. 1 day after using it i could tell my face looked alot better, and the next day was even better. About a week of my looking slighty better every day. But the next week it stopped. Nothing changed and my acne was still there. I gave up and put the product back in it's box and into my closet. I continued to test different products and Proactiv kept coming in the mail every 3 months, and going into my closet. Untill i then got a letter talking about the "new" Proactiv. You could just change your old proactiv order to new proactiv, so i thought "why not?" i mean, i wasn't using the old stuff anyway. So i fixed the order and waited for this new stuff to come in the mail.
3 months later i get a package in the mail. I eagrly open up the package to find.... OLD Proactiv. I called to see what was up with the order. APPARENTLY my order didn't get changed and i had to re-do the order. I expected a package in the mail everyday, but nothing came, untill 4 months later. When i finally did get the product i got started right away. I pretty much had the same reaction. It worked for the first day, but then several days later i started breaking out! I continued using it for a week and gave up because i was tired of waking everyday with even MORE pimples!
So LONG story short, Proactiv failed my test, and i am still on a journey to find the "magic" cure for acne.
