I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Proacitv+. I received samples of Proactiv+ to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating.
When I was a teen acne breakouts were a fact of life and a daily obsession -- I can't even remember all the brands of skin cleaning and medicated products I cycled through back in those days to fight that uphill battle. At the time, I recall all I could think of was how much I couldn't wait to get into my 20s so I wouldn't have to deal with those ugly red pimples anymore. Long story short is that my 20s, 30s and 40s all came and went and I still was cringing whenever I noticed the occasional annoying blemishes on my face. That all changed when I started using the Proactiv+ skincare system about six weeks ago.

Watch this short clip to see & hear me talk about the products I tried for this review.
The Proactiv+ core system includes just 3 easy steps
- Step 1 - Skin Smoothing Exfoliator
- Step 2 - Pore Targeting Treatment
- Step 3- Complexion Perfecting Hydrator
This 6 ounce tube of exfoliator has a wonderful light fragrance that reminds me of a breeze at the beach. The cream cleanser formulated with prescription-strength micro-crystal benzoyl peroxide gently washes away dead skin cells while working to encourage smoother, new skin to resurface.
Follow up the Skin Smoothing Exfoliator with this product which comes in a 3 ounce push pump bottle. The cleansing gel, with SMART TARGET Benzoyl peroxide 2.5%, feels light and gentle as you smooth it on your face in the affected areas, avoiding eyes, lips and mouth. The product's advanced fomula helps guide medicine directly into pores to clear existing blemishes as well as prevent new ones from erupting.
After your skin is cleaned and treated it's time to moisturize with this silky rich hydrator. This step is particularly important since you definitely want to combat dryness and return moisture to the skin. Not only does applying this product featuring salicylic acid and botanicals to help brighten skin and hydrate your face and neck, this is also designed to improve texture and skin tone resulting in a more radiant overall appearance.
To complement the Proactiv+ 3-Step System, I also received a 1 ounce tube of Skin Purifying Mask which deep cleans pores with sulfur to draw out impurities while cooling koalin clay extracts excess skin oil. As recommended on the box instructions, I use this three times a week all over my face routinely in addition to applying as an overnight spot treatment when I notice face trouble brewing.
Whether you are 17 or 40+, you don't have to feel self-conscious and worry about your skin breaking out if you take proper care of it. Proactiv+ is the solution for me because it works. No matter what your age, if you want your skin to be blemish free so it looks its best, this product collection is worth trying.
The Proactiv+ 3-Step 30-Day kit is currently available direct online from Proactiv+ for $29.95 including an Instant Radiance Duo Gift and free shipping. The "plus" in Proactiv+ alludes to "more" with more advanced skincare benefits for you to achieve a more luminous complexion.
