It, much like Proactive, only made my skin break out more. After trying many htings I finally found a rountine that works and I hope it helps you too. Wash your face with a gentle cleanser and as always only barely rub your face you should not see your skin move as you fingers move across it and this goes for every step. Only was for 10 seconds and rinse with warm water. Afterwards apply Clean & Clear PERSA-GEL 10 Maximum Strength, you should start with a thin layer but after a couple of weeks you can apply more when using. Then after your face is dry lotion, lotion, lotion!!! Hope this helps.
