I was happy to review some more products in the Proactiv Solution line! About a month or so ago I reviewed some of the winter products on the Proactiv line and fell in love with the products!

Proactiv was generous to send me a few of the other products I was interested in, the Concealer Plus Sulfur Acne Treatment, and the Daily Protection Plus Sunscreen SPF 15.

I have a normal case of acne, if you could say that, I don't get a ton of blemishes but when I do they can be bad ones so I like to use concealer. The Concealer Plus is a great concealer because it has the acne medicine right in it. So it is concealing and treating your blemishes. The makeup in the concealer isn't the strongest I've seen (as far as concealing) but even still, I am very happy with the results of using it. If I have a really bad blemish, I put the Concealer Plus on it, with a dab of my regular makeup concealer to fully hide it.

I have learned from using Proactiv that you need to use a moisturizer with SPF in it. The active ingredients in acne treatment products such as Proactiv can make your skin sensitive to sun exposure, such as making you burn easier, etc etc. So I love using the Daily Protection Plus Sunscreen. It's from the Proactiv line so I know it won't make me break out and it has SPF in it! You can also use it on the body.

I am interested in using the tinted facial moisturizer plus SPF when I run out of the bottle I currently have. I also saw a Proactiv commercial the other day saying they had reformulated the cleanser to include micro-crystals so I'd love to try the new formula!

And how is my skin doing after using Proactiv for the past month or so? Good! I have noticed a definite improvement in my skin. I still get blemishes and sometimes I get a bad one, but I am getting fewer. My skin is clearer and not covered in little mini blemishes everywhere. I am happy with the results for sure!

The Bottom Line: Proactiv works! Take is from someone who had been suffering from acne, but my skin is much better now. I'm a customer for life!

* I received some Proactiv products to facilitate my candid and honest review. No other form of compensation was or will be given. All personal views are my own!

I've been considering giving Proactive a try for a while but you've convinced me. I have some adult acne that I'd like to get rid of. polo-puppy-fluffyAThotmail (dot) com

I don't consider myself a person who suffers from a lot of acne. I do however get a lot of tiny bumps of pimples. Not whiteheads or anything.. just tiny bumps. I wish I could clear them up and have smooth skin. I have heard great things about proactive and you write a great review. I may just have to try them. Thank you!!

Mary512 said...

yes I think proactiv could definitely help with that problem, Fokxxy. I had the same problem-small bumps along with the bigger ones. the proactiv really helped to clear up those smaller bumps that covered alot of my facial skin. Now I still a bad blemish from time to time-but the rest of my skin has cleared up considerably.
