Proactiv Anti Blemish 4 Piece Kit: A Four Week Trial

If there's one thing youngest Gorgebag is not short on it's confidence and quite rightly so, even if a Momma's opinion is a little biased. Recently though he's been plagued with breakouts as is a teenage skins wont and it's getting him down a little. In three steps, that we're hoping, might be a solution, the Proactiv Anti Blemish skincare system is going to give it its best shot to help us out. 

You might recognise Proactiv from such famous face parts as Jessica Simpson's T Zone, Katy Perry's smig and Justin Bieber's smug cheeks, the list of celebrities that have lined up to endorse this product goes on and on and yep, that's great but when Lorraine over at Beauty Features told me that's it's one of their best selling skincare products with the highest rate of repeat purchases then I knew we'd have to try it. 

Proactiv Anti Blemish 4 Piece Kit: €45.79
The Proactiv range, using the active ingredient Salicylic Acid, works in 3 steps to clear blemishes and prevent future breakouts. 

Renew: The oil free cleanser contains tiny microbeads to gently exfoliate. This is to be applied morning and evening to dampened skin. 
Revitalise: The revitalising toner helps lift any remaining residue on the skin and assists in closing the pores, making skin appear calmer. 
Repair:  There are two lotions on the 4 Piece Set, one specifically for day time and one for night. Both contain Vitamin D, E and Retinol to even skin tone and help to reduce further breakouts on the skin. 

And now to the testing: In true Blue Peter style - here's one I made earlier... 

We've included 'Before' photos here because over the next four weeks we're going to put Proactiv's claims to the test and use these photos side by side to judge progress. Check in next Toosdy to see how we're doing one week on. 

The Proactiv Anti Blemish skincare system is available on BeautyFeatures.ie right now should you wish to join us in this trial, I can't guarantee you'll look as devilishly handsome as teenage Rico Suave up there but we have high hopes for a clear kissers all round in a matter of weeks. 

Have you tried Proactiv already? I'd love to know what kind of results you've had.

Cherrysue, my teenage daughter used this range. It actually took 3 months to work. She only used the renewing cleanser and night lotion at nighttime as she found it all too drying during the day. She used a normal cleanser and then used normaderm anti-imperfection hydrating care in the morning. She found the proactiv
refining mask(clay mask) the best and uses it still once a week. She hasn't had a spot in over a year and a half with this regime. So best of luck.

He's such a cutie, spots or no spots! Tell him to remember that other people see about 10% of the flaws we see in ourselves. With a big smile, no-one will see anything but a charming lad. :)
