ProActiv Advanced Blemish Treatment Review

I’ve been doing some sponsored posts for Proactiv the past few weeks and I got a few samples of their products to check out and I honestly didn’t think I’d like any of them but so far it’s proved a very good experience!

I recently had a big old pimple on my chin so I reached for Proactiv Advanced Blemish Treatment and had instant high school flash backs. I remember using Clearasil to attack pimples and I also remember that my skin would come out of it flaking off. It was SO incredibly drying.

I was a little hesitant to try Proactiv’s version of pimple zapper as my skin is dry enough so def don’t need to add fuel to the fire so to speak. But, hey, it was either this or slap a Hello Kitty Band Aid on it and say I scratched myself or something lame like that. You know, where you convince you and the people around you that the kawaii bandage on your face isn’t really hiding an ugly pimple, it’s actually hiding a bad bruise or scrap from that time you went skydiving in Hawaii…something elaborate like that makes a plaster on your face sound really fancy.

But for the sake of this post I did indeed smear a little drop of this on my pimple. The formula is a gel-like cream that feels comfortable on my face and has no fragrance. The best part? No dryness AT all after use. I was shocked to say the least but thankfully enough it treated that pimple in two days and did it without drying my face out.

All I can say is WINNING!

I’ll keep this one in the beauty arsenal just in case any other stray spots decide to appear.

    Do you use it as spot treatment only? I been looking for an all over blemish control, that will not dry my skin out. I seem to get acne all over if I don’t. I would use it for prevention, if you know of anything let me know.

      I haven’t used it all over my face, just as a spot treatment I don’t think they mean for you to put it all over your face.
