“I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Proacitv+. I received samples of Proactiv+ to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating.
As a blogger who tries out so many different beauty products, I have seen something happen to my skin over the years. It has taken a serious hit! I talk about a lot of products on my blog, but I only try out the ones I really like! Just think of all of those products out there that I have tried and haven’t liked that you have no idea about. Many of those products have really aggravated my skin and caused it to break out. I won’t completely blame the beauty products though. Did you know that your skin can completely change overtime? Not as in wrinkles, I am talking the actual pH levels in your skin. Your hormones can completely change and your skin will be affected by it. I saw this in a major way after my daughter was born.
Before having her, my skin was pretty flawless. I was one of the lucky ones who went throughout middle school and high school without really having to deal with acne. It was once I was pregnant that everything changed. I started getting painful acne that didn’t seem to be cured by anything I tried. I haven’t done many makeup tutorials lately because I was feeling so self conscious about my skin. When I was approached about trying the Proactiv Plus three-step system, I was thrilled to try something new! I knew that Proactiv had a good reputation and couldn’t wait to try their new Proactiv Plus products. The “plus” means that it is more advanced skin care!
I mean, just look at the sadness in my eyes in the before photo. I didn’t give you those puppy dog eyes on purpose, that truly is how I was feeling inside. My skin felt horrible and I did too. I wasn’t comfortable without makeup on like I had been in the past. Now, flash forward to present day, 4 weeks after starting to use Proactiv Plus three-step system. Look at the way my skin glows! I am even glowing on the inside. You can tell I feel a whole lot better than I did before.
I was worried that I would have to take a lot of time out of my day to dedicate to using these products, but I didn’t at all! With 3 steps, I am done in just about the same amount of time I was taking when I only used one face wash and moisturizer. There is one more small step added now and it doesn’t take long at all. It is something that my schedule can totally handle. This is now a major priority for me. Just look at what a major difference it has made. I absolutely love the final step in the three-step system. It is called the Complexion Perfecting Hydrator. It is the greatest moisturizer ever! It helps fight acne while giving my skin just the right amount of moisture. My skin feels soft and healthy, even when I am using acne fighting products. That is a miracle!
Now I feel the confidence that I once felt when I had clear skin and I can’t wait to start doing makeup tutorials for you again!
