i've used everything too... pills, cleansers, benzoil peroxcid, natural cleansers, murad system, store products,washclothes,acid. nothing worked i've even tryed proactiv system, But when i use something i want to see results right away... my friend told me to try proactiv again but to keep on using it, and that it might make my face worse, but to keep on using it.. oh and it did. I broke out really, really bad for about two weeks then a little after... After about a month my face started clearing up and looking really good! and i have only been using it for 30 days which is a long time for me.. but it was worth it ... your suppose to give proactive 60 days to clear your skin up!or your money back!! So don't give up like i did.. keep using it you will see how great it works... And i didn't just have a few pimples it was all over my face, my face was red and oily with acne everywhere not one patch of skin on my face was clear it was horrable... try it again but don't give up on it and don't use ANYTHING else with it and only wash your face twice a day... and only once a day when you go through your break out period, u have to let proactiv get in your pores... try it its working really really great for me any questions i will be more then happy to help you! :) my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org don't give up!!!
