Proactiv Green Tea Moisturizer Review

Having never had issues with my skin in regards to acne, it probably comes as a shock I’ve doing some sponsored posts for Proactiv but I gotta say everything I’ve tried up until now was surprisingly brilliant.

There Green Tea Moisturizer is kinda rocking my world lately.

Let’s take a look!

Proactiv Green Tea Moisturizer was created to address dryness that is associated with acne products and medications. Heck, we’ve all had a pimple or three in our lifetime and we’ve probably always reached for a spot treatment which helped clear up the problem but proceeded to leave behind flaky, dry, tight skin after use.


That’s where Green Tea Moisturizer comes into play. This gel moisturizer was created to address not only acne prone skin but also dry, oily, or combination ones.

It’s rich in minerals and botanicals (including extracts of green tea, iris and macadamia nut) to help your skin retain moisture.

This is actually a brilliant daily moisturizer. It’s an incredibly lightweight gel that absorbs easily and leaves behind soft, hydrated skin. I use it prior to my foundation and powder and it eases the way beautifully for both. It doesn’t leave my skin shiny, greasy, or oily after use either which is a plus and my skin hydrated throughout the day.

It’ll probably easily become a win for Summer when I need a lighter moisturizer but it easily works during the cooler weather.

Overall, it’s not particularly rich but my dry skin seems to soak it up nicely. I was surprised. I commonly associate Proactiv with acne which is why I’ve never bothered checking out any of their products but I’m glad I was introduced to this one.



If you’re looking for a lighter gel moisturizer for day wear, something that’s not greasy or oily and won’t freak out your sensitive or acne prone skin do check this one out.

Anyone every try it?

Do share!

    Hi Muse!

    Haven’t been keeping up with you like I have in the past–many apologizes. Love, love, LOVE the blog and the reviews you do. I am super jealous at the stash you have! Currently am living vicariously through your beauty life on here. =)

    I have used Proactiv’s products including this one before. Love them but not the price tag! Not everyone is blessed with the good skin gene. Used to have ridiculously (and I am not joking about that–had more pimples than skin on my face at the worst) bad acne then I used their system and it’s cleared up for good (mostly; still am getting flare ups, etc. Yay for hormones! >=[ ). Cannot say enough good things about this product, the green tea moisturizer! Soaks right in and is a gel-like consistency. I’d recommend people try regardless of their skin condition.

    Appreciate all that you do for beauty on your blog! Happy Holidays!
