My complexion used to be pretty good, aside from the occasional pimple or breakout during my time of the month. When I got pregnant with my second daughter, my face started to break out. She's almost 2 months and I'm still suffering. It's not just vainity...they're painful!! :cry: I keep seeing commercials for Proactiv and I'm thinking about ordering some. I'd like to hear people's personal experiences and recommendations for what to try, Proactiv or otherwise. Thanks!

    Hi,

    I have a similar situation...my son is now 5 months old, and I started breaking out two months ago - when my "cycle" returned. :cry:

    I've been using Proactiv for two days now. My husband noticed this morning that my face already looked better. :shock:

    Proactiv has a 30-day, 3 step treatment kit for $19.99 plus about $5 for shipping. That's less money than I've wasted on hair products that don't work, so I decided to give it a try and I'm overjoyed that I did!
    YES WE CAN!

    Relegated to occasional lurking in order to keep the PJ in check!

    Thanks for the reply! I decided to take the plunge a couple weeks ago and ordered the 30-day supply. I'm so glad I did!! I've seen such a huge improvement. I'm glad it's working for you too!

    So happy that proactive is working for you ladies. It's done wonders for my skin and I am currently using it. Couldn't be happier.
