"Don’t you hate it when you discover something ten years after everybody else? I never really thought about using Proactiv. I have very dry skin, so I always assumed that a product line focused on heavy acne demolition was out for me. But at the same time, I have always had issues with blemishes that sabotaged my confidence. I recently met Julianne Hough, dancer, actress, and singer extraordinaire, who told me about her experience with Proactiv. She needed to step up her acne regimen when she was on Dancing with the Stars, and makeup, heat, lights, sweating, and stress created a perfect acne storm. “ I doubt most people were looking at my zits”, she said, “but that’s what I felt like! I have a lot more to say and a lot more to talk about now, and [that I have Proactiv], I get to be myself without being distracted by that other stuff.” After seeing her doll-face up close and personal, I had to try it!
I have to say that I am really surprised with the results. Although Proactiv does come in a gentle formulation, I tried the regular one. I followed Julianne’s regimen in the morning: cleanser, toner, and repair lotion, then used just the cleanser and green tea moisturizer at night. My skin has not gotten dried out at all (not at all, beauties!!!), and I do actually do notice a reduction in blemishes after just 2 weeks. Better late than never, right?
Another treasure: Proactiv has a cleansing bar and body lotion to help with body acne (yuck). They’re unscented, so they don’t interfere with perfume. "
