Proactiv Solution, the world’s best-selling pimple-fighting beauty regimen, probably also boasts the longest and most renowned list of celebrity spokespeople—especially with the just-announced additions of Katy Perry, Avril Lavigne and Jenna Fischer to their lineup. WWD reports that the trio of stars will join Proactiv’s famous pitchpeople — which already include Mandy Moore, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Julianne Hough — by touting the acne remedy with televised one-minute, two-minute, and 30-second commercials launching later this month. They’ll be compensated handsomely in return, as company exec Ben Van de Bunt confirms, “We are paying people consistently with what we have done in the past, which is millions of dollars.” Perry, Lavigne, and Fischer’s new gig will last at least a year, and expect to see the ads airing worldwide, as the line is carried in more than 58 countries.

ok look proactiv did not work for me at first. BUT i just got the new one, and i realized something. you NEED to stick to it, otherwise you WONT aee any improvement. if you dont stick with it, then its not worth it, an nothing will happen. what you need to do is continue the processes and dont give up on it. at first, it does make your skin worse (dry, red, itchy, irritated, acne worsens) but if you continue on with it, it will get better. in the first week of use, ur skin will be irritated, second week, it will be a little better, but still a lil irritated, third week, some people may be clear, but if not, its still working, fourth week and up, most ppl r clear. so you just need to stick with it and quit ripping on the product, because half of you out there who do probably never tried it and r just going on what others say. so stop, and use some more common sense when using it. trust me it will work :) and i wish you all a good acne clear. remember, acne is not clearable, but it is controllable, and that’s what proactiv does.

Pro Active worked for the first six months or so but it burned everytime i used it. After six months or so i stopped using it because i noticed that my pimples were actually getting worse over time and although the burning from Pro Active went away once my face was used to it that is when i noticed i was getting more and more pimples and the system was just not working anymore. Like if everything your body gets used to what you are taking or using on it. So i decided to take a few months break from it and started up again. The second time using it was even worse…i just said forget this. Now i am using Acne Free and been using it close to a month now and since the first time using the product i noticed a differance, it did not burn my skin like Pro Active did and my face has never felt so refreshed since i started using it.

If considering on trying Pro Active, ask your friends and family members if they tried it out…Do not trust the commercials Pro Active most likely paid a pretty penny for those celebs to speak on their behalf.
