    Comments about Proactiv Adapalene Gel 0.1% Acne Treatment:

    So I bought this because I heard that it's the first over the counter product with the specific spot treatment. And it seriously works! I have hormonal acne that is ridiculous hard to treat with typical measures such as birth control. But this helps with it. I do have oily skin and this dries out my brake outs but almost too much. So you definitely need a good moisturizer.

    Comments about Proactiv Adapalene Gel 0.1% Acne Treatment:

    I apply this product to my back, chest, and face in the morning after my shower. I started using this product on my back and chest about a week before trying it on my face. This cleared up the acne on my back no problem. It has also cleared up the acne on my chest (still awaiting the results on my face), however it did cause irritation on my chest and my face is breaking out. The instructions do say it will get worse before it gets better so only time will tell.
