I can’t believe a whole month has gone by since I began using ProActiv through the Mom Central Blog Tour. If you’ve started reading me after my last post, you can read about the beginning of my Challenge on my original post.
I really wish I had known about ProActiv when I was in my early teens. Growing up is tough enough on a kid, but when you begin your teen years with a lot of pimples on your face it is worse. Oh the names mean-spirited kids can come up with. Names like ‘pizza-face’ or ‘crater-head’. That whole ‘sticks and stones’ is pure crap when you are that young; those names hurt.
I eventually grew out of it and my hormones leveled out enough that I didn’t stand out too much with all of the other hormone-ridden teenagers.
Now, I normally use organic, all-natural products on my face, but there are still times when I have break outs and I need help. I’m really glad that I was a part of this tour because since I started my pregnancy, I’ve broken out a bit more – how I love my hormones. It isn’t really noticeable, but I can tell when I look in the mirror (I guess being a teenager with those same problems makes me more aware of them).
Using the Proactiv system once in the morning and once at night has kept my face looking normal and I am happy with the results. The process was simple, wash with the Renewing Cleanser, pat dry, use the Revitalising Toner, then finish with the Repairing treatment. You can use the Refining Mask as needed or dab a little on a tough blemish for overnight protection. It maybe took all of 3-5 minutes.
If you, or someone you know struggles with blemishes, acne or breakouts, I suggest you check out ProActiv and give it a try.
Here’s a little more information on the Green Tea Moisturizer if you are interested.
Green Tea Moisturizer: Most blemish treatments work to control and remove oil from the skin’s surface and therefore, by nature, can be drying. A soothing, oil free moisturizer is key to replenishing and repairing the skin. Proactiv Solution Green Tea Moisturizer is a light moisturiser that absorbs instantly, delivering soothing hydration to dry skin. It is formulated for blemish prone skin with concentrated botanical extracts and powerful antioxidants that leave skin feeling refreshed and moisturized. This mineral-rich, non-comedogenic formula won’t clog pores or leave skin feeling greasy and is suitable for all skin types.
And make sure you stop by the ProActiv website for more information on how well this product works.
