Note* I have combination skin that is very oily at times or rather dry.
I’ve got to try the set a few times and I’m pretty impressed so far. The brand proactiv is one that I’ve always been weary about due to their infomercial presentations and celebrity endorsements. However, after trying it for myself I’ve got to say it’s not bad and actually quite awesome.
The packaging itself is very pretty: mostly white tubes, two of which have a gorgeous metallic blue around the name and brand of the product. It actually matches my bathroom decor!
Upon my first use, my skin immediately felt tight and I was afraid that I would look in the mirror to find a rash. Totally NOT the case.
The set itself comes with a cleanser, which is rather a cleanser-exfoliator hybrid. The cleanser contains little exfoliating beads. I felt weird about that aspect at first, as I like to cleanse and exfoliate separately because over exfoliation can prove very bad for your skin. This product hasn’t given me any problems and I think it’s rather gentle as an exfoliant and can actually be used every day. After each use my skin feels ultra clean, tight, and smooth. This product has never caused any irritation or dryness for me and I love that fact. The set also features a moisturizing sunscreen which I think is awesome, especially because of the pump bottle it comes in and the fact that it’s not thick and leaves absolutely zero residue. I also noticed it was gave my skin a matte finish, which I then read on the packaging that it intended to just that, so that’s a win for my oily appearing skin. It also features an acne treatment gel. I used the acne treatment gel after the cleanser right before bed. The next morning it looked as if all my blemishes had noticeably shrunk, including my acne scars. It was a dream come true! Rarely do spot treating products actually show some results, let alone that fast. Disclaimer, it didn’t magically clear my acne, but it definitely shrunk my blemishes which is a great start. I can’t wait to continue using this set and hopefully I’ll see some major changes in my acne. I really did not expect to like these products, but it turns out I am a fan. Maybe this set could become my holy grail skincare regimen. Help me proactiv, you’re my only hope.
I gave this product four out of five stars because I have not yet achieved the acne free skin I desire. I will update this review upon continued use.
