Hi Bees! I was wondering if any of you have tried or known anyone who has tried the Max Clarity Acne System. It is that foaming acne cleanser that has infomercials all the time. Did you have any luck with it?
I have tried the original Proactive but it dried out my face really bad. Has anyone tried the “New” Proactive that is supposed to be gentler?

The new Proactive is pretty much the same as the old Proactive in my opinion…except just a bit gentlier. Hope that helps!

I have not used this product, however the active ingredients are basically the same as most OTC acne products that you can buy at any drug store: benzoyl peroxide 2.5% and salicylic acid 0.5%. The active ingredient in the original Proactive product was benzoyl peroxide 2.5%. If you had problems with dry skin with that, you probably will have a problem with the MaxClarity due to it containing the same ingredient.

- MaxClarity Foam Advanced Acne Treatment with 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide
- MaxClarity Foam Rejuvenating Toner with 0.5% Salicylic Acid

@Kittyachi: I did go to the derm ( 2 different ones) and spent a fortune on creams, face wash, and pills with no luck. I don’t have terrible acne but get cystic acne (those big red ones under the skin) every couple weeks. They are so painful!
