I've only bought one infomercial product - The Pasta Pro. I loved it at first and used it a lot but it's found it's way to the back of my cupboards and hardly gets used anymore. Now that this thread has reminded me of that I should dig it up, wash it off and use it again. :wink:Just curious if anyone here has bought an infomercial product. If so, what did you get and would you recommend it?
My husband is almost 24 and he has been on oral antibiotics since he was a teen for bad acne. I hate the fact that he is still on them, but it is the only thing that keeps him from getting horrible acne. He already has one really bad scar on the side of his face.manitu22 said:I used to be on topical and oral medicine prescribed by my dermatologist but I stopped using it because the topical oinments were no longer working. My skin got used to the medicine. The oral antibiotics made me feel sick to my stomach. anyways...I don't recommend Pro-active although I am sure it does work for some people.
I bet in a year or so it will get better. I used the benzyl peroxide stuff too and eventually it just stopped working for me. I have a few acne scars as well. I have used everything from Retin A to benzyl peroxide, tetracycline, minocycline etc. My skin is very oily too still. Probably will always be that way. I have huge pores too. It used to really bother me but I guess I just am used to it now.shlanon said:My husband is almost 24 and he has been on oral antibiotics since he was a teen for bad acne.

He also uses topical benzyl perozide stuff but it doesn't even work all that great..he still gets more acne than a "typical" 23 year old. Not only that, but the medicine has bleached all my blue towels and sheets (there go our nice wedding gift towels). 8O
I am just hoping he will eventually grow out of it? His skin is really oily and he supposedly inherited "crooked pores" from his mom.
