ProActiv Review: How I got rid of difficult Acne after years of trying everything

By on October 20, 2016

Growing up I was lucky to never have bad acne through my teen years. Unfortunately once I had kids that all changed. Apparently having kids alters your skin a lot! I ended up having really dry skin and developed a bad acne spot right between my eyes, above my nose.

For the most part I’ve never been really self-conscious, and I was never in to a lot of makeup. But once my acne spots started to spread and get bigger, I really wanted to do something about it. It felt like a giant red mountain on my forehead. I couldn’t even wear make up to cover it up it was so bad, it just couldn’t be hidden.

As I normally do with most issues, I start to look for low cost, all natural options. I started making my own face masks with all sorts of different ingredients. Honey, brown sugar, coconut oil, cinnamon, etc. I think I have over 100 pins on different face treatments.  Also, I bought different essential oils to try as well.

After months of trying, I started looking at over the counter options. I tried Biore, Clean and Clear, Neutrogena, etc. I tried all the face masks they had, creams, washes, toners, etc. Nothing seemed to help. I was even using a prescription strength steroid cream for awhile which only slightly helped.

Finally I gave in and bought Proactiv, I’ve seen all the commercials and a friend of mine swears by it. So one day we were at the mall and I saw the kiosk. I bought the 30 day supply for $30 and it came with a skin purifying mask. $30 is a lot for me to spend on anything, especially something ‘non-essential’  The first week my friend warned me it looks worse before it gets better. So I was patient, and by the 2nd week I saw a noticeable difference. I still had spots but they were smaller and not mountains. After 30 days I can say I barely notice that area! I even have plenty left of the 3 part system, so I probably wont have to buy more until after the second month.

I really feel like this was absolutely worth the $30, I plan on continuing to buy this, and take better care of my skin. I would highly recommend Proactiv, especially if you’ve tried other products and your not getting any results.

  • This is my life right now .... I feel so scattered and nothing is being done 100% - but I'm not stressed ... my 12yr old is recovering well from his illness, my girls are behaving (sorta) well this week and I'm about to runaway with the hubby for 2 days to see his favorite soccer team play in Houston! The kids will be in good hands and I think 40hrs with out them will help us finish out the last half of summer break! I'm just going to breathe and get things done whenever I can! #summer2017 #summerkids #summercraziness #momlife #momblog #momblogger #momof3

  • Ahhh my downstairs is clean ... my girls are playing barbies and my boy and me are watching my favorite tv show The West Wing!  I've decided to scale back on how much I work ... just for the summer... I've been feeling more anxious about not working more on my blogs... as much as I enjoy the work I want to focus on my babies more... so if I can't work on it at night it will just have to wait :) my happy chaos life is too much fun to ignore :) time to make more memories!! Hopefully this change in focus will bring me more content and ideas for projects going forward! I'm blessed to financially be able to do this as I know not everyone is as priveleged.  #wahm #sahmlife #summer2017 #summertime #summerkids #momblogger #momlife #momof3 #momblog #mommyhood #mommoments
  • This seems to be our summer theme! So much cuddling!
