I've read Proactiv reviews that completely demonize the product and some that sing praises about it, but I am definitely one person who recommends that anyone with an acne problem give the trial pack a shot.
As a teenager I was lucky, as an adult not so much. I used Proactiv in my early twenties, and it worked great for about a year. All of a sudden it was like my skin became immune to it and my acne problems came back. I wrote Proactiv off as useless and quit using it. Later, in my early thirties, my mom insisted I try it again, and I did. This time it has been 100% effective for going on three years. Your age, hormones, health, skin type and skin sensitivity all very likely determine how effective it will be.
I recommend giving it a shot if you're curious and if it doesn't work, cancel your subscription. If it does, great!
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
