It had to happen. Once Proactiv became huge there had to be larger chains that would try to mimic it. We have all seen it with the mineral makeup craze and now it seems to be the time for acne-proofing our skin.
Neutrogena's skin iD is the newest drugstore brand to try to snag away some of the rabid Proactiv fanbase – they even advertyise about how it is twice as fast as the popular infomercial line at reducing acne. From the skin iD Web site:
better and faster than Proactiv at treating acne!
skin iD outperformed Proactiv on all skin types and age groups. For mild, moderate, and severe acne, the results show that a personalized skin iD solution delivers superior results versus Proactiv.
Compared with Proactiv, skin iD™ is shown to be:

I haven’t really been plagued with acne since those tough middle and high school years, but I am interested in finding out if this line is as great as Neutrogena skin iD claims it is. For those who are looking for a solution to skin woes, skin iD is offering $10 off introductory kits on their Web site. The code is NEUTROGENA10 and is valid through June 30th. Kits can be purchased online or by calling 1-866-742-0201.
I would love to have those who have tried this line report back and let readers know how it has worked for you.
