5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than Proactiv, October 23, 2010
This review is from: Burt's Bees Natural Acne Solutions 3 Step Regimen Kit (Health and Beauty)
As someone struggling with acne for over 20 years, I feel that I have good authority to rate this product as there is nothing for acne that I haven't tried. This thing works, and works beautifully. I was using Proactiv before and, although it helped a little, it made my skin super flaky and irritated, and the acne was still there. Still, it was the best thing that I had tried, so I used it for years. Proactiv didn't stop my breakouts, though, and sometimes they were so bad that you couldn't tell that I was using an acne treatment twice a day, religiously. Proactiv customer service told me to try the super strength formula, which didn't help either.

I finally gave up and decided to try something natural after reading a couple of good reviews for Burt's Bees acne products. Boy, am I glad I did. I about two weeks of use my skin already looked better than it did in a long, long time. I haven't had any more awful breakouts, no more peeling and flakiness, no more irritation. Doesn't smell bad and it's invisible (Proactiv has a funky odor and makes your skin shiny). I am not using the hydrating lotion, though, because my skin is really oily and I the lotion was too much for my skin type - not that it gave me acne, but it did make my skin feel "heavy", so I stopped using it. Now I simply wash my face morning and night with the cleaning product, and when I see that I am about to have a breakout I use the spot treatment. The spot treatment doesn't have the best smell in the world, but it works like never I tried before.

With this regimen, I haven't had a breakout since starting using the products. Also, since I am not using the hydrating lotion, I am going to be able to save some money by buying the products separately - instead of buying the kit, I'll buy only the two products I use. I am so happy that Burt's Bee does sells the products separately.

The extra nice effect is that it seems that my skin tone is becoming more even after using the products. Proactiv left me full of dark spots but this is doing a pretty nice job in getting rid of them.

Bottom line - I highly recommend these products. My next step is to buy the scrub and all I can say is that I hope this keeps working!

Sounds like miracle product! I can't wait to try it. I too use proactive and I thought those dark spots were from sun damage showing up when I hit 40.That would be a great added bonus to have clear skin and even skin tone. thanks for the review!

You can add water to the lotion and shake it up to thin it out. Then it is perfect for oily skin.
