Now they have generic brands that say "compare to Proactiv" but all of them I have bought to save money do not work :( It's the same ingredients, I don't know why it doesn't work, but only the real thing works for me. I tried all the home remedies you can find online and that's the only thing that works.

 

They do make a sensitive formula but I just use the normal set. I also use it only every 2-3 days.

 

Yeah I only use it once a day. At night I just wash my face with dove and use a good moisturizer. I have had terrible acne my whole life with terrible cysts/boils, and this has helped tremendously. I get the odd tiny pimple but not the giant ones that scar my face. I have tried all kinds of washes and supplements and this is the only thing that works.

My daughter found that the cover-up makeup products that contain zink not only cover, but also heal.  Tbey're by far the best solution she's found.  You're basically covering with an antibiotic, instead of clogging and causing the blemish to get worse.  She's also begun using a sonic-type electric cleanser, but those can be pricey.  I'd only try them if these other suggestions given don't work.

Ha, I was going to come back and talk about zinc.  My daughter was using Sudacrem, a British diaper rash cream containing zinc, for up & coming pimples and it zaps them outright.  Plus, it smells good!  I read that on mumsnet, I think.
