I used to use Proactiv and had very clear skin. However, towards my later 20s I started to break out and was in search for a new product. A couple friends of mine use Dermalogica and rave about it. I really wanted to love this product especially since it was a lot and reminded me of Proactiv, but it unfortunately didn't work that well for me. It somewhat made my skin clearer, but it didn't prevent my skin from future break outs and it didn't fight well against my breakouts.
