“My teenage years were already complicated enough on their own, so suffering with severe acne on top of that made for some stressful years. Nonetheless I looked forward to growing up and out of my acne, yet here I am again…”

Proactive Review – First Impressions
I usually compared acne treatments and skin-care products to diets, as everyone swears by their particular brand, method, ritual, yet there are thousands of them on the market, and it usually seems that they fall have one thing in common — failure. Yet, if you look closely, there’s been one product that has led the way for the last 15 years. Proactiv.
Few things are more empowering than feeling empowered and being confident in your skin, and the way you look. That’s why I decided to get Proactiv for myself, and give it a shot, and I can tell you that I anxiously waited by the door for my package to arrive.
The day came, my box was at my doorstep, and I tore that thing up like a kid on Christmas morning. There were the Proactiv products, neatly packaged and wrapped as if they were a gift. Well, after all — they are my gift. It’s truly what is inside of the containers that really matters, but in today’s day and age, presentation and packaging is so important, specially if you’re the segment leader like Proactiv is.
After checking out the cool packaging, I decided to snap open the Oil Free Moisture to check out the smell. I was taken back by how fresh and clean it smelled but also the Advanced Daily Oil Control smelled, and how smooth and clear their texture was. I hadn’t even tried them on my face, but I had already fallen in love with them.
On a side note, make sure to always do a “Spot Test” to check for any allergies or weird reactions to your skin. Simply dab a small amount of product on sensitive areas for three days or so, therefore giving your skin time to make sure it will accept Proactiv and how much of it you can use safely. This may sound silly, but remember — safety first! Keep in mind that Proactiv uses exclusive microcrystal benzoyl peroxide that targets acne-causing bacteria and it keeps your skin clean to prevent new acne or blemishes from flourishing.
It seems I may have found an acne treatment that does what it says, can’t wait to fully try it on!
