PS: I actually really like the facial cleanser. It had a gritty texture to exfoliate my skin and I feel like it did a good job at cleaning my skin. It had a subtle clean smell to it which was also nice.
◇The second step (Adapalene Gel 0.1%) is the acne treatment. Adapalene helps to normalize/regulate skin cells and has an anti-inflammatory effect which is supposed to reduce acne formation. A thin layer is applied to the skin once daily in the evening (it is not a spot treatment). After applying it to my face it felt a bit tacky but quickly dried down to a smooth finish.
◇The 3rd step (Daily Oil Control Moisturizer with SPF 30) is an important one. Adapalene can make your skin more sensitive to the sun so it is important to use SPF. It can be applied as needed and can be used under makeup.
◇Overall I am enjoying these products and hope to see improvement in my skin over time
Received the 3-Piece Acne Treatment System with Adapalene complimentary from ProactivMD, but all opinions are my own.
Okay so I really do love the face wash but for me it's not a daily face wash I can use. By day 4 my skin was drying out and under my nose I have red spots! But it got rid of my blackheads completely and reduced my pores SO much. So for me, this is a once a week face wash. Also, I love how refreshing it feels and it has beads in it that helps exfoliate your face. I felt like it tightened my skin afterwards too. I loved the Adapalene Gel as well! I applied a small amount all around my face and anywhere i saw a pimple it would get rid of it! My face was so smooth after applying. The step 3 Daily Oil Control I didn't like very much. After applying it I felt my face was burning almost like I had a sunburn on my face and after having it on for a bit it feels a little itchy.
I used this skin care line for a week and I love the results it's just not something I can use everyday or it completely strips my face dry. If you have really bad acne this is the product for you. I don't have bad acne just stubborn blackheads and random pimples and it got rid of them! ProactivMD® 3-Piece Acne System
So the first time I used the cleanser, I thought "wow, this is great, my skin is so smooth". and that's about where that ended. I kept using it and after a few days, my skin was no longer smooth. It was bumpy and EXTREMELY dry. I'm talking, use moisturizer SEVERAL times a day and it's still dry. I've increased my water intake, and nothing. I legitimately have scabs on my face because my skin was so dry that it cracked. I read on the Proactiv website that you need to keep using and it's just your skin getting adjusted, so I've been trying. But with how much it's ruined my skin, I don't even a little bit want to. It's AWFUL! I would seriously take back every Vox Box I've received in order to not have had this happen. I'm afraid coming off of it is going to be even worse on my skin.
