I was kindly sent the Proactiv+ Deluxe Core Kit* to test out for a couple of months. I'm super excited to try the 3-Step System as like most people can possibly relate to, skincare is overwhelming. Skincare is becoming almost as popular as makeup, and the beauty community are there to tell us about all these cult products our local Boots or Superdrug wouldn't host. There are so many products now readily available to us that picking something out for your skin type can become a mammoth task. It can also mean a lot of trial and error, which means a lot of money spent and the possibility of exaggerating the problem. I for one know the hassle of trying to find something that works for me, and I can assure you I have spent my fair share on skincare to not even come close to fixing the problem.
What the Proactiv+ Deluxe Core Kit* includes:
Skin Smoothing Exfoliator
Pore Targeting Treatment
Complexion Perfection Hydrator
Bonus Product: Skin Purifying Mask
All three steps contain salicylic acid, a BHA (beta hydroxy acid) ingredient that has become more well-known over the years and addresses many of the systematic causes of blemishes/breakouts. It is an exceedingly effective exfoliant as BHA's have the ability to penetrate into the pore, and thus can exfoliate inside the pore as well as on the surface of the skin.
I thought I would give you an introduction to my skin and show some before pictures (unedited) so you can see, once tried and tested how well this product works. I will also be providing a full review of the products including weekly updates and pictures of the changes to my skin so keep an eye open for that post to follow!
I do not have acne, and the majority of the time my skin is actually pretty good. These pictures have been taken when I have a few breakouts and my skin isn't looking it's best. What I do suffer with is large pores, occasional big breakouts (see chin) and I suffer from clogged pores.
The clogged, congested skin is what I am always trying to combat, I absolutely hate it, and to anyone walking past me in the street, or even talking to me they probably wouldn't notice. But whenever I look at my bare face I can see around my chin and on my cheeks these lumps that just won't go away. The feeling of them is even worse. Although, this is minor compared to some people and for that I am grateful, it really is something that I struggle with.
