Does the acne medicine- PROACTIV really work. My daughter just began using it, she's almost 13.?

kit t
acne is a natural process of puberty. unless she has a medical condition, ( in which case you should see a doctor) you are better off letting nature run its course without putting chemicals you obviously know nothing about on her face.

Don't know about that one, but my son who suffered with severe acne was able to eliminate it by applying Braggs Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (you can get it in a health food store or on Amazon.com) to his face. The generic cider vinegars did not work as well for him.

Test for sensitivity on a small area before applying it to the entire face.

Actually, Wal-Mart carries a product that has been tested and proven to be at least as good if not better than Proactiv - and it's cheaper. It's called AcneFree. Comes with a cleanser, toner, and time-release peroxide moisturizer. When used as directed, it is extremely effective. I use it, and swear by it.

yes I've never heard from anyone it doesn't work. It worked for me until I suddenly realized I was allergic to it which was weird since I wasn't at first, but if not I'd still be using it

well, from what i know my older cousin has tryed it and it doesn't work for her but my other cousin used it and it worked for her. i really think that its mostly about what your skin will react to. the cousin that it did work for has oily skin but my other cousin has not too oily but not dry either. i hope this will help you at least the tinyest bit. so good luck!

it really does work i started using it when i was 13 and i was on it for about 6 months mine wasn't too bad but it was bad enough it clears you up for a long time and if you get an occasional zit here and there don't worry about it just wash your face. My brother also went on it and he had it way worse than me and it took about 8 months for him to clear up.

Yes it does! My brother and niece both used it and it worked great on them! Good luck!

yes but it dries out your skin.

Didn't work for me...at all. I had it really bad though, finally, and w/reluctance went on accutane, it worked, and it was the only thing that worked, but I had really bad acne. deep deep sebatious cysts....then got dermabration to help repair the scars that I got while wasting alot of tme on stuff that didn't work...good luck...I am a mom too, my kids never had it bad, not like me and I didn't get it till I was 35...........

I have used this highly informative information and it worked for me in getting rid of my pesky acne. And you don't need to buy expensive acne cream either! http://www.theknowguide.com/acnefree.html

i had pretty bad acne and i had tried everything... creams, face washes, pills, birth control... one day 6 months ago i just got fed up and decided to order some proactiv. i had heard some success stories from people i knew, plus those infomercials on tv really hook you. it has been the best thing i have done for my skin.

i find that a combination of proactiv and zapzyt (benzoyl peroxide cream 10%) works best for me. the proactiv took forever to start working (2 months). it didn't clear everything. so i added in using the zapzyt after the toner and before the lotion, and my skin has improved SO much. i still get pimples every now and then, but not nearly as much or as severe as i used to. i actually don't really mind the pimples i do get now, realizing that they are nothing compared to what i had.

looking back at pictures from 6 months ago, i can't believe how bad my skin was and how much it has improved! proactiv works the best for me. even though it's so expensive, i don't mind the price, because it's the only thing that HELPS. it won't work for everyone, and you may find that your skin gets worse before it gets better, but it's definitely worth a shot.

PROACTIV is totally worth it (from my experience.)

My daughter used it and did not get results. She uses a nature made brand that has worked much better and doesn't cost as much as proactiv. The main thing proactiv does is it has sloughing agents to remove dead skin cells, this ingredient caused my daughter more breakouts and after we called to verify she was using it correctly was told that that issue has been a complaint from many users.

It depends. On many people it does. I use Avon Clearskin and LOVE IT! p.s i am 13 and it works

Staying Quiet
it's been successful for lots of people i know, problem is they've never seen her face or her ance...a dermatologist could probably be more beneficial for her

It didn't work for my younger sister...You could try acne free that worked for her.

I have had "advanced acne" for years--unfortunately my sons have inherited it as well. I have never tried proactive cuz I don't believe it will work on the cysts. when it flares up too bad for any of us, we go get some tetracycline

If you follow all the procedures it should work but, if it fails, shoot I'd get my refund..

It worked for me. In fact, it was one of the only non-prescription products that did work for me. But you have to make sure that you use the whole system as directed, twice a day.

im 13 and started using proactive this year and it has helped but my acne is not completly gone. it depends on ur daughter though. it could work great or not at all for her. it all depends.

no it does not

If you’re looking for accurate acne information, best to see a dermatologist. Some people believe doctors are predisposed to take the easy way to deal with acne… prescription drugs. But, with many, this simplistic answer may not be the appropriate course of action. Some feel that such prescription drugs just treat the symptoms and not the underlying cause. But, a local dermatologist is still your best starting point.

For me personally, I discovered a great informational acne treatment site. Not only is there good information/articles but I got their audio e-book and following it’s advice can now say that my acne is a thing of the past! Keep in mind, were all different and there are various types of acne, so what works for some may not be totally effective for all.

Bottom line, hang in there, you will get past this! Sincere best wishes and good luck.
Oh, by the way the site that helped me is:


I didn't like it. It worked on my skin for about a month and then it stopped working. Plus it would make my face really sensitive. Make sure your daughter stays out of the sun right after she puts it on... and make sure she does not use the tanning booth with it on... ouch!

The best stuff I ever found was a spot treatment from Mary Kay, I use it to this day!! Zits go away literally overnight.. it works awesome!!!

It works for a lot of people but if it isn't effective for her and she has a good case of acne consider seeing the doc for antibiotic therapy for her to get the staph bacteria under control.

First Lady
It worked for me.

It worked beautifully for me :) Just make sure she uses it when she gets up and right before she goes to bed. You'll see results by the end of the week :D

yes for me it did,and other people i know said it worked for them

No!!! not for me but everyone is different. I use Neutrogena Advance Solutions (acne treatment).
