Skin Care Review: Proactiv

by Nia, Providence, RI 02912

Proactiv proved to be a bunch of hype. During the initial period of use, for which the money back guarantee was valid, the product seemed to have minor positive effects. However, I assumed that since I had not been using it for long that it would progressively work better. In actuality, the minor positive effects were simply the drying out of my skin. Also, this benzoyl peroxide formula was time-consuming with all the different highly suggested creams and steps. Ultimately, it left my acne-prone skin dry, irritated, and still susceptible to painful (both emotionally and physically) breakouts. Plus, I didnít even get money back since I placed too much faith in such a trifling product only to see no results. I would NOT recommend Proactiv.
