Proactiv+ Review!

I had the amazing opportunity to work with Proactiv over the last few months and got to try out their Proactiv+ skincare line over the last 90 days. I would've added a before picture as well as my after one, but I am normally so subconscious about my skin that I have no pictures of me makeup-less before I finished this skincare program. The ones I sent to apply for Proactiv have been gone since the day they were sent. 

I have always had bad acne problems, ever since I first started my period (when I was 12!), my face has been a crazy mess. 

And let me tell you, I am SO excited about this skin care line! I still get random breakouts from stress or bad eating or forgetting to wash my face some nights, but they're never as bad as they were before using Proactiv+. I've seen that a lot of people have problems with it over drying their face, but I actually didn't have that problem at all! I used it once a day and used the skin purifying mask every few days as needed, but instead of using it as a mask, I used it as a spot treatment.

Sadly, the skincare line didn't really do much to make my pores smaller, but other than that - it was great! And it's super easy to get into the habit of.

Here's my routine and how I used it:

Skin Smoothing Exfoliator: (Kept in shower) - I used this every time I showered to wash my face, whether that was once or twice a day.

Pore Targeting Treatment: (Kept next to the sink) - I used it before I went to bed at night.

Complexion Perfecting Hydrator: (Kept next to the sink) - Also used before bed at night.

Skin Purifying Mask: (Kept on bedside table) - Used literally as I was about to lay down as a spot treatment! I'd wash it off the next morning when I woke up.

Have you tried the new Proactiv+ Skincare Line? Because you absolutely should if you haven't. It's worth it. So worth it. Today is actually the first day I've worn makeup in almost a week because I am so much more comfortable in my skin.

Would you try it? Think it sounds good? Let me know!

(P.S. - I literally took this photo right after I woke up so it would be legitimate. So no judging on the crazy hair. :P I know all you bloggers and readers don't wake up with perfect hair every day!)

Happy Wednesday! :)


  1. I did the campaign too, so I'm glad you were also in it! (: I'm not sure how I feel about it didn't totally clear my breakouts and I'm soooo dry now. I wish they had a pure moisturizer in the mix as well!

    1. Yes! I love seeing everyone else's results as well. :) That sucks that it didn't work as well for you though. :/ Maybe add in one of your own?

  2. I tried Proactiv about a year ago and it did not work AT ALL. In fact, it made my skin much worse. The only thing I trust now is Dermalogica. I wonder what differentiates Proactiv+ from the old one. I'm glad it worked for you!!

    1. Really? The Proactiv I tried to use when I was younger dried out my skin SO BADLY but thankfully this one has been working pretty well! Thank you! :)

  3. I used to use Proactiv when I was younger, and I saw awesome results. I haven't used it for years though, so I'm curious as to how well this new line would work with my skin. I get occasional breakouts too (aren't they supposed to stop when you're an adult?! Come on!), and I hate it.

    P.S. Even makeup-less, you're still a dime. Gorgeous!

    1. You absolutely should try it! Get a travel kit, maybe? (And yes, I totally thought we should be done with this by now. I mean, really. I'm almost 23).

      Thanks so much girl! You're super sweet! :))

  4. I tried the original Proactiv and recently the Proactiv+ line, but both didn't work for me. I ended up breaking out way more and my skin was SO dry that is was almost painful. I ended up getting rid of all my unnatural face washes and going with an organic soap bar that has been working wonders for me!

    1. I'm glad you found something that works! I know a lot of people have problems with the dryness. :/ For the breakouts though, it actually can/mostly does break you out worse for a couple of weeks while it pulls everything to the surface. Just in case you try another skin care line later. ;)

  5. I love Proactiv. It has cleared up my skin incredibly. I have to check out this new line though. It looks great for my oily skin.


comment, encourage, or tell me happy thoughts.
any of the three will do. :)
