Proactiv 3-Step System Review
As most of you know I turned 30 this past December – GASP! And yet I still suffer from acne. There aren’t many perks of getting older, but I would think not having zits would be one of them. Unfortunately I am the poster child for adult acne and it drives me crazy. Since I do a lot of media events where there are bright lights and tons of people, my acnes has always made me feel self conscious. Make up can really only do so much and since I don’t have my own personal makeup artist that can cover up all of my imperfections and skin blemishes I had to take matters into my own hands. I decided to check out Proactiv for the first time.
I was very skeptical about trying Proactive but only because I thought it something only teens used and thankfully I was very wrong. I joined in on the Proactiv 3-Step System movement and I must say I am quite impressed. It took about a week for me to start noticing a change, but my skin just kept getting better from there. And since it’s such a simple routine, it’s not an inconvenience to maintain. As a busy Mom my time is very limited so this is a huge bonus for me.
- Step 1: Renewing Cleanser – A unique oil-free formula that contains smooth, tiny beads to gently exfoliate dead skin cells and other impurities, with exclusive micro crystal benzoyl peroxide to begin to clear acne, gentler and faster than before.
- Step 2: Revitalizing Toner – A refreshing, alcohol-free toner with glycolic acid that helps balance skin tone and remove dead skin cells to reveal the vital, radiant skin beneath. This special formulation helps to balance skin’s natural acids. It contains witch hazel to help refine and purify pores, aloe and chamomile to soothe and soften, plus allantoin to help stimulate the growth of healthy tissue. The toner removes excess surface oil without drying.
- Step 3: Repairing Treatment – A light, oil-free leave-on treatment formulated with exclusive micro crystal benzoyl peroxide that absorbs into the pores to treat acne at its source. The Repairing Treatment penetrates deep into the pore to help heal blemishes and help prevent future breakouts. The advanced delivery system can be used on the entire face and any other acne-prone areas.
I tend to have oily skin so my biggest concern was that Proactiv would dry out my skin and cause it to peel, but that hasn’t been the case at all. I use the 3-Step System twice a day without incident and can wear my normal makeup over it during the day. I am so happy with my results and as cliche as it sounds, my confidence has gone up as well. I am thankful that I decided to take a leap of faith and give my face a “makeover” with Proactiv. I am now a believer and if you suffer from adult acne as well I encourage you to check it out for yourself.
Keep in mind that results do vary, but it’s worth a shot. Be sure to visit Proactiv.com for me details or check them out on social media:
Everyone wants to look and feel their best so stop letting breakouts get in the way. Try Proactiv!
