Get Clear Skin! (Proactive Review)

Most of you saw my video: "One of My Everyday Makeup Looks," that was alot of acne... for me. And since then I've started using proactive.
I used Proactive when I was younger, just to keep my face clean, not really for acne purposes. My mom has always used it. I stopped using it cause I felt I didn't really need it.
Products I've used in the past for my skin care are:
Neutrogena Wave Duo (this did nothing for me.)
St Ives Olive Cleanser
Biore Ice Cleanser
... and others.
Since I've started using proactive again I've noticed a huge difference in my skin. The only difference I havent noticed is the little bumps I get on my face. (Which I've had for a long time, but they haven't gotten worse or anything).
Most people have heard of Proactive, with the T.V. commercials and everything. My mom has been using proactive before all these commercials have come out, so it's not like this is what made me want to use Proactive.
Proactive conists in 3 easy steps...
Step 1: Renewing Cleanser
I really love this cleanser. The small exfoliating beads are really gentle. There is a slight smell to it, it's not over-whelming but some may find it anoying. Personaly, I barley notice it. This also removes, if not all, then most of my makeup.

 Step 2: Revitalising Toner
This toner is great because it takes off anymakeup the cleanser may have missed. It doesn't really sting you face either (unless you have a scratch on your face, then that would sting). Which is good coming from me since I have easily irritated skin when it comes to stingging. It applies smoothly too, and dries quick so you can quickly, and easily move on to the third and final step...
Step 3: Rpairing Lotion
 This delivers the perfect amount of moisture to your face, and a little goes a long way! This bottle is smaller then the other two, which goes along with the whole 'little goes a long way.' I like this because then your pretty much using up the same amount of product each day, so the bottles will be out of product at the same time. Therefore, you can go ahead and buy all the 3 bottles at the same time, which is cheaper! Did that make sense? I hope so.
There is a downside that I've found. I have a feeling some of the ingredients aren't the best for you since the cleanser bleaches my towels! But, this can also be a good thing: it's taking the redness out of your skin.

Overall, I think that if your struggling with acne, and have not tried Proactive, then you should. It's quite expensive but if it makes your skin clear, then it's worth it! no? Also Im pretty sure that you can try it out and within 30 (or maybe 60) days you can return it if it doesn't work for you!
Hope this was helpful to anyone thinking about trying proactive! if you have any questions please feel free to comment, or e-mail at .
DISCLAIMER- Proactive (or anyone allitified with Proactive) did not in anyway send me these products or is paying me to do this post. My mom paid for these, and we went to the "cart thing" to purchase them ourselves.
