Skin care!

Is there anyone on here who uses proactive? Right now I use Alba botanica and I've used it for about 4 months and it's been working pretty well so far I recently ended up breaking out on my cheeks and it's the type of acne that is sore to the touch. (Just two acne spots) My husband suggested I try proactive since that's what he uses and has really great skin but I've heard a lot of bad things about proactive not working and making the skin worse, not everyone's skin is the same and I haven't used harsh chemicals on my face for about a year.
