Proactiv Plus- Review

For years now I have trusted Proactiv with my skin’s well being; I believe I first started using it at age 12. Of course, at that time I was using their original acne treatment line- which I find to be much harsher than their new Proactiv Plus line. I have a dry and sensitive skin type, which often worsens during an acne flare up (due to the drying chemicals found in the products I use to eliminate pimples). While Proactiv’s original acne treatment products cleared my skin up over night, it also left my skin feeling flaky and tight.. not to mention it also stained all of my towels and pillowcases. I didn’t want to have to choose between soft glowing skin and acne free skin; I wanted both. Thank heavens for Proactiv’s launch of Proactiv Plus.  This line not only eradicates any unwanted blemishes, but it also leaves my skin glowing. I’ve been subscribed to Proactiv Plus’ full three step kit for about three years now, so I’ll be able to give a trustworthy opinion on the products. Let’s begin!

Cleanse: Skin Smoothing Exfoliator. 

Medicinal Ingredients: Benzoyl Peroxide (2.5%).

The first step to clear skin is this exfoliating cleanser. Proactiv suggests usage twice daily; however, as an individual with mild acne problems I only use this about three times per week (or more, dependant on my skin at the moment). I recommend greater usage to those of you with consistent acne issues.  I also highly recommend using a makeup cleanser prior to use. This product is designed to eradicate blemishes not properly remove makeup, and it can’t effectively do its job with the makeup barrier.  I like that I can feel this product working, as the exfoliants cleanse my pores of any unwanted impurities.

Treat: Pore Targeting Solution.

Medicinal Ingredients: Benzoyl Peroxide (2.5%).

The next step is treating the affected areas. I apply this product generously to a clean and dry face.  This product is also great to use by itself when you feel a breakout coming on. I consistently see results the following morning after applying this product the evening prior, making for a quick resolution to break outs!

Repair: Complexion Perfecting Hydrator.

Medicinal Ingredients: Salicylic Acid.

LOVE this product. It was ever so smart of Proactiv to incorporate skin care into their acne treatments. Ahh finally. This product leaves my face looking super glowy, and I love a good healthy glow.  This is the product in the three step kit that ensures proper skin hydration, and I love its results.

Let me know if you have any questions regarding the Proactiv Plus’ acne treatment line down in the comments. Thanks for reading!
