Does Proactiv Work?
Hello gorgeous people of the interwebz! Â How is your face today? Â I’m asking because, I’ll be talking about one thing that you need to take care of because this is how people recognize you – your face!
I am only human guys and my skin is very far from perfect! Â Lately, I’ve had more troubles with my skin because I went to non-stop travels. Â My recent trip before I took this experiment was when I went to Cambodia. Â It was crazy, hot, humid and dusty! Â All the elements my face needed to breed acne! Â It’s so nakakadiri!
I cringe at the site of my face without makeup (except for eyebrows, I had to put a little coz I barely have any!). Â I cringe that I’m posting it on public. Â But what the heck, I’m real and I’m sharing this so suck it >.<
I’ve been dying to try this product for a long time already since I watched the informercial on TV. Â You might be familiar about the product – Proactiv. Â Celebrities who use and endorse it are Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Jessica Simpson, Hilary duff etc.
The real question is, does Proactiv work? Â I am very curious myself and if it does work magic like this, then it would be quite something! Â My face is ready!
I got my hands on my own Proactiv 30-Day Kit
You can buy this at any Watsons store

Proactiv usage directions and quick start guide
The instructions are pretty much spot-on and self-explanatory
Warnings and Personal Notes before using:
1. Â If your skin is too sensitive, check with your dermatologist first.
2. Â If your skin is allergic to any ingredient indicated, do not use it (obviously)
3. Â If you start using it and your face feels irritated, stop using it.
4. Â Using this product would mean you need to avoid sunlight, use sunscreen! (non-comedogenic)
5. Â The product could be drying on the skins so don’t forget to use moisturizer (non-comedogenic)
6. Â Use only non-comedogenic products (meaning, products tested not to cause pimples or acne on your skin and do not block your pores)
7. Â Using the product could cause a little sting (but even for me who has a sensitive skin didn’t feel noticeable pain at all). Â If it stings too much on your end, you might want to either use it only once a day, or every other day, see if your skin gets used to it, but if you have severe allergic reactions – please stop!

HOW-to- USE the ProactivÂ® 3-Step System for best overall results
Step 1: Cleanse
Apply the Renewing Cleanser to moistened skin and massage gently for 1-2 minutes.
Step 2: Â Tone
Apply the Revitalizing Toner to cleansed skin with a cotton ball or pad morning and night as needed. Allow toner to dry and follow with Repairing Treatment.
Step 3: Treat with Repairing Treatment
Apply the Repairing Treatment to the entire face or other blemish prone areas after the above two steps have been completed twice per day, as long as redness and skin irritation do not occur.
Use a pea-sized amount
Step 4: Every once so often (every 2 or 3 days), put refining mask
You can put it for 10 mins or sleep with it overnight (as per box’s instruction)
*** Apply the Refining Mask; after cleansing, and leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse gently with warm water. Use 2-3 times per week or more frequently is desired.
PROACTIV TIP: The Refining Mask also makes a great leave-on spot treatment at night. Apply it over the Repairing Treatment wherever you have red bumps for a better complexion in the morning.
How Proactiv Works
Taken within a week of use.
In the morning, where there’s sunlight on my face, Â you can see my skin better.
Overnight, I really got to feel results by the moment I wake up. Â My skin felt smoother and less caky and bumpy.
Of course, nothing much happens overnight, but I still felt a little difference
Eek! you get to see my pores clearly now. Â I say not bad! actually it did a pretty good job!
Let’s see what happens after 30 days! I will keep you posted 😉
More info about Proactiv
Proactiv Solution is a Combination Therapy System
Proactiv is a combination therapy system (first of its kind) which has several products in a system that heals the blemishes that you currently have.
The process of acne is complicated. Using a â€œone-shotâ€ approach of full-strength medicine to dry out a pimple after itâ€™s erupted wonâ€™t work in the long run. And because the acne cycle occurs over 1-3 weeks deep inside the skin, the pimple or blemish that finally appears is the finale of this process, not the beginning. Thatâ€™s why, just like brushing your teeth prevents cavities, daily treatment with the combination of non-prescription medicines found in Proactiv helps stops acne before a breakout is visible.
Prevents Future Breakouts
ost products on the market today are engineered to clear existing blemishes, not prevent future breakouts, which is why they often are a single product instead of a system. Acne is a very complex skin condition that cannot be adequately treated using one medication or a single product. In order to both heal and prevent breakouts, one must address the plugging of the pore, excess sebum (oil), bacterial overgrowth and inflammation. Proactiv was the first acne treatment system in the world, and is still #1 because it provides the right ingredients in the right order to address the acne process. It treats the process below the skinâ€™s surface. Acne prevention is Proactivâ€™s goal. Once the skin is clear, it means the medicines are working. So the secret to maintaining a great complexion is sticking with the program.
Money Back Guarantee
While Proactiv is successful for the vast majority of people who use it daily, no medicine works for everyone. That is why Proactiv offers a risk free, money back guarantee (subject to terms and conditions). The small percentage of people who do not respond positively and continue to have stubborn breakouts can contact our Customer Service or check the bottom part of the Proactiv Box for more details. With this added value, customers have nothing to lose but their acne.
