Transitioning out of Proactiv...

I've been using Proactiv products since I was 13, I am now 19. So thats almost 6 years. Now the dilemma is I'm trying to stop using these products. I am a poor college student and trust me they do pinch the pockets. Plus they don't seem to work as good as they use to. I've tried other products such as Clean & Clear and Neutrogena but they don't seem to work.

What are natural products that I can use on my skin that won't break the bank, but will get the job done?

    Have you tried Aveeno's clear complexion line? It's worked wonders for me.

    I know what you mean. I use to use it as well. It was the best treatment! I even got others to invest in it. But after a while it stopped be as effective. Also being a college student it just wasnt worth it anymore.

    I now do the oil cleansing method (ocm). Way cheaper with similar results, without the drying out of my skin.

    Patricia wexler works really well and is available at bath and body works but I'm not sure how much cheaper than proactive it is. proactive didn't work for me but this does.
