Anyone use Proactiv?  
I've been using it and I discovered that it is on Amazon.com for cheaper than going to a kiosk at times. Pretty cool.

See it here!

I know. It is a pain. I don't do it that way. Go to the kiosk or Amazon.

I had a ton of products too but none where helping me. My face was always red with sores from acne. It was so bad.

If Neutrogena is keeping your face clear then totally use it. My problem was that Neutrogena products really dried and irritated my skin.

I went through tons of stuff... even Doctor stuff... Proactiv just keep my skin clear and I feel clean whereas before I'd feel like a dirty grease pit within hours. I felt like I needed to clean my face all the time. But I stuck with 2 times... morning and night and it didn't help. Break outs everywhere.

I feel like I'm in a commercial. *lol*

My sister uses some cheap cleaner from Walmart. Her skin is perfect. I hate it.

Though you know...bad acne is a side effect of my other issue. *sigh*

Oh it does dry but then I use their grease-free moisturiser and it helps.

My middle sister had really bad acne and had to resort to pills. Side effects aren't that great though so I'm not that eager to try it.

My other sister, though? Perfect (or almost) skin. Grr.

See the moisturizers tended to make things worse for me.

I won't do pills. I can stick to a facial regimen but I don't want to have to constantly remember pills. I'm so bad with my IBS pills it is annoying.

See something I learned with proactiv is never use a wash cloth on your face. I always did. It is just putting dirt back on your face.

Same with mine. A pain.

Yickes, I never use a washcloth, it's horrrrrible!

Methinks I should probably take Alesse again. Had to take 'em after getting my appendix removed and it definitely helped both the cramps and the acne. Hmm.

I know. Didn't know that back then. I stopped but normal over the counter face wash still doesn't work for me.
