Proactiv Product Review: Does Proactiv Really Work?
I'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!
