Proactiv Solution- Are Local Drugstore Products Just as Effective?

A reader sent me a link to a recent TODAY show segment on the effectiveness of over the counter products like OXY on the treatment of acne, versus more expensive like products like Proactiv and topical prescription products. The results were interesting- it appears that the over-the-counter products works just as well as the Proactiv and topical prescription treatments, but cost significantly less.

Note: Proactiv’s price is probably influenced by its marketing budget.  Puffy, Jessica Simpson, Lindsay Lohan don’t come cheap.
