Did any of you use proactive while pregnant? My face is horrible and i have been using it.. I sure hope it is safe.. My face has never looked like this. Please any input. I was using cetaphil and wasen't helping me at all..

I spend a fortune on proactive and it didn't work i hate this product. If u really wanna get some thing useful that will only be Murad acne solutions products. i just used it for few days and my face was clear as merrior..But who knows may be proactive solution will work on u..

LOVE Proactiv. Everyone I know who has tried it has loved it. I used the mild formula with no benzoyl peroxide - it had salicylic acid instead. I used it while pregnant - guess just ask your doctor.

I used clean and clear oil free cleansing cream while I was and it worked great

i read online( that any benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid product (i'm pretty sure the active ingredient in proactiv is benzoyl peroxide)is ok to use while nursing so i'd a__sume it's ok to use while pregnant. i used oxyclean facewash and clearasil cream, in the morning and before bed the entire time i was pregnant but now since it's winter i only use the cream at night cuz it can dry out your skin. salicylic acid products are a complete waste of money for me. i've had horrible ance since i was 13, when i was in 10th grade i went to a dermatologist for help and it cleared up so fast. now that i'm older and it's getting better with age, i don't get the perscriptions anymore. i've heard really good things about proactiv but i really don't want to spend the cash on it.

My husband uses proactiv and I tried some...can't stay away from the stuff...the microbeads in the facial cleanser are a little rough, so I may try the mild one that Katie is using. But it really keeps the complexion flawless.

Thanks girls for all your input!!! It seems to be helping a little.. But, we shall see. Where do you get the Murad stuff?

Proactive never worked for me either it made my skin worse. There are mixed reviews on whether it is safe during pregnancy so check with your doctor. I believe you can use salicylic acid face washes as well as benzoyl peroxide washes while pregnant but I wouldn't use the topicals because you don't wash them off and they can get into your bloodstream. I had really bad skin my first trimester and used St. Ives Scrub for Acne and it worked wonders I had great skin the rest of my pregnancy and it is still working.
