      My daughter who is 12 has suffered with acne to the point of what do I do?? I started with this system and within 3 days 90% of the acne on her forehead was clear. I was floored. We have tried everything under the sun. She has super oily skin and this has helped so much

        Horrible

        By Buyer

        from Washington

        Comments about ProactivMD Essentials System Value Set:

        I tried this set out after seeing such great reviews, but this broke out my skin so much. My skin was at its worst and I was getting pimples in spots where I never had any before! Once I finally got rid of them I had red acne spots that I'm still trying to get rid of. I even used this for the 60 recommended days to see if things would get better, but they didn't.

          It was okay it's works The only think that I didn't like was the adapalene gel it irritated my skin. But i honestly think that proactive plus is so much better compared to this one

            I have never tried proactiv before but at 24 I still get breakouts here and there. This stuff is amazing! It took a few days but then my skin cleared and felt so smooth! It even brightened my skin. I love this stuff!

                Comments about ProactivMD Essentials System Value Set:

                This set was the only thing that worked! Especially because I wanted something topical. It started working right away, then there was a bit of a cycle where it slowed down for a week or so and then the great lasting results kicked in! Overall 95% clearer, and using step 4 very very sparingly. You might try to find a less expensive version of the steps, but when something finally works after trying nearly everything, it is more than worth it! That said, you have to try it and see if this particular set works for you and your individual complexion!

                    Comments about ProactivMD Essentials System Value Set:

                    I have oily skin in t-zone area which enhances the look of large pores and serving as a platform for blackheads on my nose. I have tried everything to control the oilyness but nothing has helped. Although I don't suffer from acne, I get blackheads on my nose that oftentimes is out of control so I decided to try proactive. This product helped with the blackheads and oilyness but it made the rest of my face too dry. Peeling is not a great look and with makeup it just looks horrible. In addition, I developed a rash on my neck. I would only recommend this product to those who have bad acne. Others should try something less harsh.

                    Worked! But dried out my skin

                    Comments about ProactivMD Essentials System Value Set:

                    I used this for 3 days and by the 4th day I realized it is so strong that I do not need to use this on a daily basis. The retinol is very powerful, BUT it really dried out my skin. I am using multiple moisturizers to bring my skin back to life! But overall I would purchase again to use every other day and to keep my black and white heads clear and pores minimized. It made a pretty significant difference in those flaws for me.
