    Default rosacea and proactiv

    i've had rosacea for 4 years now, it started as a few small spots on each cheek, i kept drinking vodka and it spread everywhere after 2 years. i bought prosacea and it only keeps the flare-ups from being as bad, it tries to go away but never does. i gave up on it finally cause of the $10 every 2 wks. i finally tried proactiv and it's been exactly 15 days and it cleared up 80 or 85%. from the 3rd the small acne stopeed appearing, i didn't touch my face at all - the red areas didn't go away until yesterday, some are there, but they're way smaller and very light. i still drink beer but its the only thing that worked - and money wise $25 every 3 months is better than $20/month prosacea (which has sulfer in it which is in the mask thing anyways) - dont buy all the extra stuff unless you're a girl (oh, i am not)... just thought i'd share cause reading the top girls' story is what made me try it. i don't like the recurring payments though; but my face literally looks almost clear (who knows it may work all the way?) - and i feel better about myself in about 3.5 years.

I use proactiv's sunscreen moisturizer and glycolic acid toner twice a day and the sulfur mask once a skin looks great. I'm still red in the butterfly zone, but at least now I can apply foundation to hide it without all the bumps underneath.

    Because I have less bumps my face looks less red too.

    I can't believe it. I've been terrified to use proactiv because you hear such bad things about it, but it's actually working. I can use the facial cleanser that has a grit to it and not be flushed and beet red afterwards. Yet, I turn red after using something like dove.

    Just thought I'd share....
    It's the only thing that keeps me acne free but I can't use it anymore because my face hurts a lot like someone hit me with a bat or something and it gets really red too in the butterfly zone too
