Proactiv Product Review: Does Proactiv Really Work?

proactiv product reviewI've been on the market for the perfect face and acne cleanser for awhile. I don't have severe acne and everything that I've tried besides the mild drugstore brand cleansers have been wayyy too harsh for my skin. Usually a specialty cleanser that I get sucked into during late night infomercials cause me to break out in rosacea and itchy patches all over my face. When I see Proactiv commercials and all of the celebrity endorsers, I immediately think it's going to be the same. It's probably great for people with a chronic case of acne, but not so much for someone who has very mild break outs every once in a blue moon.

Even with that thought in mind, I had see if Proactiv really works. For only $19.99 for the starter kit, I couldn't resist. I started using it regularly as instructed and found my skin clearing up with no crazy break outs. Now I'm in the beginning to middle stages of using Proactive. It's been about a month and so far so good. Usually every skin cleansing product I've tried in the past work really well in the beginning. But for a month now, it seems pretty mild.

So I go online to read other people's reviews and found that Proactiv might be exactly what I've been looking for all these years. Proactiv is really great for someone with very mild acne problems. It might not do much for you if you have a chronic case of acne. I'm talking if you just have smaller acne pores, a small pimple here and there, Proactiv is great for that. It only contains 2.5% of the main ingredient which is Benzoyl Peroxide. This is very weak and no where near the 5%-10% found in prescription acne solutions. This is great for me because everything else I've tried has been way too strong for my skin. So if you have very very mild acne, give proactiv a try.

If you have a serious chronic case of acne, save your $19.99 and put it towards something the dermatologist would recommend. Even though $19.99 isn't going to break the bank, I've found Proactive much MUCH cheaper on Ebay. Sometimes as low as $1.95 for a 30 day kit with free shipping! So buy it on ebay and save yourself the hassle with ordering it over the phone. You can get it immediately and try it out for a month for $2. At $2 for a month's supply, you cannot lose!

Between the perfectly tan ladies of Real Housewives of OC, the Kardashians and then the Jersey Shore with their "Gym, Tan, Laundry" (aka, GTL) routine, I have been obsessed with self tanners! Now, I'm not viagra 100mg usually one to fake bake because, well, I live in Southern California. Just seems like a waste of money to go to a tanning salon when you can just go outside and catch some sun.

However, tanning in the sun can leave you wrinkly, give you freckles or at worst, cause skin cancer if you do it enough. So, I've been looking into spray tans. While spray tans definitely work, they can be very pricey. One session of a spray tan can run about $30 (or more) and only last approximately 2 weeks. An extra $60 a month is a significant amount to put towards clothes or shoes. So, why should I try the spray tans when there are plenty of self tanners out there that have the same active ingredients? The problem is, which self tanner is the best? As for any beauty product, that depends on your own skin of course. So it is totally economical to try out as many free trial products as you can in order to find the best self tanner that suits you.

With that being said, I found a self tanner that I was really drawn to that I think you guys should try. It's called Joliese Sunless Tanner, considered one of the best self tanners on the market. For me personally, when I tan naturally, I have more of a ashy tan. I don't get that really perfect bronze glow. With Joliese Sunless Tanner, 92% of users liked the color results. You get that perfect streak free golden bronze glow. As a bonus, 88% of users liked the smell of the lotion. I love the smell of tanning lotions and tanners. It reminds me of summer, my favorite season. So I came across this free trial and I thought I'd share it with you guys. Skip those streaky orange self tanners and try this out for free. Maybe it'll work for you!

If you're ready to try Joliese Sunless Tanner yourself, click here for a free trial. The nice part is, they have a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so why not try it out for yourself? Happy tanning!

Pajama Jeans – Style Genius or Style Frumpy?

pajama-jeansOk, so I don't know if you've seen these Pajama Jeans yet, but they've done it. Some fashionista put her foot down and wanted style AND comfort. It's the idea of the look of jeans but the comfort of pajamas. So comfortable that you can "sleep" in them. I will have to try this out because if there's one thing I find more uncomfortable is sleeping in jeans. As I watch the infomercial, it's tacky at first but then I think, you know what...haven't we been uncomfortable for too long? We ALWAYS give up comfort for fashion it seems (Especially when it comes to our shoes. When someone comes out with like a "house slipper stiletto", I'll be checking that out for sure.).

Initially when I heard of someone coming out with a clothing item that is comfortable I immediately thought 'frumpy'. But then I thought about the fact that I do work from home and sometimes I am either in my yoga pants or leggings because it's more comfortable. How great would it be if it looked like jeans? Then I could wear even more cute tops and not feel frumpy or feel like I'm about to go to the gym. I think this is a great invention. I will have to test it out in person, but if it's what I think it is, I love it! It probably goes against all of the high end designer motto's out there, but who cares! High end design isn't real. It's not meant for real life people who live a real life as a stay at home mom or someone who wants to run errands or someone who wants to go out in comfort.

Now if these jeans look like stretchy maternity jeans, that is one thing. But if they really pulled off a pair of stretchy jeans that hug your body and accent your booty, you got my business! This would be a godsend for stay at home mom's who don't want to wear sweats all day or for career women on their days off. Whatever the occasion, I vote Yes!
