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.

I count myself lucky that outside of the occasional pimple I never had any severe acne issues. I rant about my dry skin and other skin woes but I realize how lucky I am I’m not struggling daily to conceal acne.

It’s been unusually warm around these parts. Honestly, it doesn’t feel like Christmas because of this crazy weather but more like Spring.
But hey, there was a day or two where the moisture was completely sucked out of my skin and the bite of cold in the weather made me go “Brrrr!’ and shake my entire body like a little penguin.
I suspect more of those days are on the horizon that’s why I’ve been stocking up on facial sheet masks. It’s one of my top picks for keeping my skin looking less than dull and extra hydrated in the cold weather.
Let’s take a peek at Princess Carnival Provence Lavender Relaxing Mask.
I missed the train on this Bath & Body Works Peach Citrus Super Smoothing Face Scrub.
Anyone try it?
It’s a foaming face scrub that contains Jojoba, Vitamin E, and Aloe Review with a citrus and peach scent.

It’ll probably dry my face out like nobody’s biz but I’m such a skincare junkie I’m willing to risk it!
Super by Dr. Nicholas Perricone Moisturizing Activator is one of four new facial toners. I’m a little obsessed with the Super Skincare Collection at the moment so I did a major haul during their Friends and Family Event and ended up scoring the Moisturizing Activator since I loved the Brightening one so much!
Has anyone tried these yet?
