I bought this kit last Christmas and was not very pleased with it. I am 31 and have never had acne until the last few years and have really struggled with it. This was one of the first products I tried and it didn't work for me. Proactiv is the only thing that a doctor hasn't prescribed that has worked for me. This product may work for others. I have heard good reviews on it in magazines and on the internet but it didn't really even seem to help my problem at all but my skin may be worse than others. The one positive thing that I have to say about it is that the products don't dry your skin out which is a plus. To me it was just another product that I wasted money on to try to solve a problem but depending on how bad your acne is it may work for you! I wouldn't even give it three stars but I realize that different things work for other people. I hope it works for you if you decide to try it.
