Proactiv Review

I am happy to introduce you to the all New Proactiv! They have made a new formula that has micro-crystal benzoyl peroxide so Proactiv can be more effective on your acne.

I was super excited to try out the new Proactiv! I have suffered with acne since I was younger! I've had my moments where my face has been pretty good and then I've had other moments where my face has had some issues. It has also caused me to have low self-esteem during the times where my face has broke out with acne really bad!

I really thought that once I got out of my teen years I wouldn't have to worry about acne anymore! I remember always hoping to reach my 20's so I didn't have to deal with acne anymore! I was really wrong on that! I actually believe my worst acne moments were in my 20's after my roll over car accident. It was uncontrollable and I believe part of it was brought on by stress. Nothing seemed to work and I did have to go in to a dermatologist to correct the problem!

I have been blessed to have pretty good skin since I've been into a dermatologist, but I do still have times where I get break outs by my chin and cheek bone. I also get acne on my neck which I do not like!

I will also tell you that I have actually ordered the old Proactiv years ago. I'm thinking it was in my late teens. I was looking for anything to work back then! I stopped taking Proactiv a few months after starting it because it didn't work for me.

I was excited to try the new Proactiv since I had used Proactiv before so I wanted to see the difference! I have been using Proactiv for a week now and I can tell you it works wonderfully! It works better than the old Proactiv does for me. Right before I started using Proactiv I had 2 huge pimples on my chin. They were the kind that are huge, very red, and just stay there! I am happy to tell you that within the week it cleared those up and you can barely see any sign that they had been there. I've also used the Proactiv on my cheek bone and neck! I haven't been having any acne there since using Proactiv! I am very amazed at this solution and would recommend this new solution to you! It feels great to not be getting any new breakouts as well!

The Proactiv is very simple to use with 3 simple steps that you do twice a day! It felt great when using the products on my face! You could feel the Proactiv working right when you put on the Toner! I loved the feel of putting the Repairing Treatment on because by then after using all the products my face felt extra clean and you could tell it was working! It even left my skin feeling soft after all the treatments!

If you or someone you know has acne make sure you check out the new Proactiv and tell your friend's or family about it!

I'm happy to know about the new Proactiv because it will help me save money from prices of medicines that I get from a dermotologist! It will literally save me 100's of dollars! Medicines from dermatologist cost so much that it's outrageous! With me not having insurance right now due to unemployment for my family, I know that Proactiv will be the best solution for me!

I was given the opportunity to review this product because of my membership at The Product Review Place.

I received a product from Proactiv in order to do a honest review. All opinions are solely mine! Others may have different opinions! I did not receive monetary compensation for writing this post! Many thanks to Proactiv for letting me review their products!

The old Proactiv did not work for me at all, I tried it full on for the 2 weeks and my skin was the exact same. However, I didn't have terrible acne but my cousin who has had horrible acne for years and years (and still has it now in his late 30s) uses Proactiv and he gets NO breakouts. He still has some pretty deep scars but no current breakouts. I think with things like this you really have to try it!

I have thought about getting this for my teeager, but he does have the same problem I had. Just another reason to doubt that he came frome my body. ;-)

The old proactive worked for me for a while, but then I think my skin or hormones changed. I'm interested in trying the new. Thanks for the review.

I've seen this advertised all over the place, but still haven't tried it. it sounds like a wonderful product.

Thanks for stopping by Healthy Moms and leaving us a comment!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

My daughter-in-law had tried the old proactiv and it did not work for her so I will tell her about the new!

Cheryl B said...

Thanks for the review! I have wondered if it works or not. It sounds like it may be a product you just have to try and see if it works for you or not based on what some of the previous posters are saying. Maybe once hubby finds work, I'll have to try it. I've got a horrible acne breakout on my chin right now (darn PMS hormones,'s bad enough they make my mood crappy, but do they really have to give me acne too?!).

My daughters tried this and the cleanser and TONER worked GREAT for them, but something in the last step made them all blotchy...maybe it was even the green tea moisturizer they gave as a bonus? I think everyone's skin is different and with so many people developing new allergies for some reason,...some products work for some and not for others. Pro active is great that they have a money back guarantee, so you can try it and not lose out. (When you have several teenagers, it can be pretty expensive each month...but a good self esteem is worth it when acne brings a teen's self worth DOWN).

Overall the times was a very exciting newspaper and one which is very insightful
into its readers needs. Or, when we speak of American
capitalism, do we mean jobs for our people, medical care for all of us, decent wages and decent retirements.
That may be, the temperature that is certainly most
effective for catching fish. Newspaper companies should
be seeking to have subscribers to their service where breaking news can
be emailed and send to blackberries and cell-phones.

A Christian newspaperis also associated with various charitable institutions and churches and organizes fund raising events to help and aid such institutions.
