My friend who had cystic acne used this and was raving about this. So, I decided to try it out too.
There was a promotion for the one month supply on television and I jumped online and ordered myself a set. There are a lot of promotions going around so don’t worry if you missed out on one of the one-month offers. One thing to note is that, once you sign up for the one month promotion online, you automatically get signed up for ever and they will keep sending you the packages until you call up to stop/quit their program.
On the plus side, ProActive has a 60 day guarantee. So, if you’re not happy, you can send it back. However, you do have to pay for postage. So if you were not happy with the one month trial package, call them up ASAP to stop the program or you will have to pay for the postage back. You can arrange with ProActive for the package to be sent a maximum of 5 months later instead of every 2-3 months.
Here’s how I found the product. When I first tried the one month trial package, my skin started flaking in the first 2 weeks to a month. The flaking was not painful like my experience with Clinique. It then started to settle down slowly but I had to buy other ProActive products. I felt that it did take a while to have an effect. The ad mentioned 7 days to take effect but it took nearly 3 weeks. I personally cannot tell if the ProActive was 100% the reason my acne started to settle down a little because about that time, I changed my diet.
After the end of one month, I still had plenty left. I did walk up to the ProActive Counter to ask about the products I bought online. The salesperson at the counter mentioned that I had bought the wrong products and it’s causing my skin to flake. She also mentioned was that the online store was not related to the set-up stores, so you can’t refund anything you bought online at the stores. That is one thing I personally do not understand as they are the same brand!
One important thing to note is that when using ProActive it did fade my towels. Not too good, is it?
I personally did not feel that ProActive did much for my Adult On-Set Acne even after using the 3-step system for 3 months straight. I still have a fair amount of acne and scars on my face that did not change in amount after it settled down a little. I have stopped using ProActive and my acne is still about the same as when I was using it. Everyone’s skin is different, so it may or may not work for you.
