This post was sponsored by Proactiv as part of a Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.
I have been using my Proactiv for a couple months now and let me just tell you a little about my experience. I have fallen more in love with this product as time has gone on. I look forward to washing my face every night because of how refreshing it leave me feeling and how clean my face is. I had never really experienced breakouts before, until after having King. I think that my hormones are all trying to get back to regular after nursing him and while nursing him. My face would get big zits that were deep under the skin. They would hurt to the point where I didn’t want to talk or move my face because it would cause so much discomfort. This is when I knew it was time to get a routine for my skincare and time to take control of my lack of confidence due to breakouts.
I started using the Proactiv 3 step system. I would cleanse my face with step 1 the cleanser, tone it with step 2, place the acne fighter on for step 3 every other night. On the opposite nights, I still did steps one and two, but instead of the acne fighter I would use their moisturizer to make sure my face was nourished and not drying out. I noticed a huge difference in a matter of a week or less. My acne was starting to get smaller and I wasn’t getting any new breakouts. I still am using the Proactiv System even though I am not getting any more breakouts. I am using it to prevent the new breakouts from coming. It has evened out my skin tone and left my skin feeling like I didn’t have breakouts to begin with.
I wanted to share a before and after picture with you. Please know that the results will vary from person to person depending on your skin type, etc. The top picture is before and the second picture is after. Let’s just say that the first picture isn’t the best picture either mmkay?
My skin tone is more even, I have less redness, and best of all I have less acne. What is better than that? I feel more confident, I feel like I have control over what shows up on my face, and I am so glad to have found a solution that works for me.
