As many of you may know, I received a 90 day supply of Proactiv+ to try out a few months ago. My trial has finally come to an end, so I wanted to share my experience with all of you. I have always had really horrible acne, so I’m constantly searching for the next best product out there.
I do have to say I was a bit skeptical starting out because I used Proactiv in the past when I was in middle school and the product did not work for me. However, I enjoyed that Proactiv+ (which is a different product line than Proactiv) had three very different products for each step. There is a skin smoothing exfoliator face wash, a pore targeting treatment, and a complete perfecting hydrating moisturizer. When I used Proactiv before, one of the issues I had was my face drying out so I liked that it came with a moisturizer.
At the 30-day check in point, I have to be completely honest – I was far from pleased. I had seen an increase in breakouts and my skin felt extremely sensitive. There was a point when I had to reduce my use of the pore targeting treatment to once every other day because it would sting my skin so badly. I remember hearing a few times from other people that “it has to get worse before it gets better,” so I didn’t want to give up and decided to stick with it until the end.
I finally understand why they said it gets worse before it gets better. Pretty much right after the first 30 days were over, my skin began to clear up. I was overjoyed!
My skin is as clear and smooth as it’s been in a while. I am really happy with how it looks and feels. I find myself using much less makeup on a daily basis when I used to cake it on. Unfortunately, I still have acne on my chest and back, but I understand this product was specifically made for your face so that makes sense.
I am pleased with this product. I will definitely keep it as part of my daily beauty routine until the product runs out. I might even purchase it again because the products I received are actually really affordable (only $19.95 for a 30 day supply!). I would be interested to see if their body wash works as well as the face products because that might be something I invest in as well.
