My skin for the past month has been BAD. I am not sure if it is due to allergies, allergic reactions, or breakouts but I have gotten quite a few pimples. I usually get them on my cheeks and forehead. For the past week everything has gotten back to normal. I am SO glad. I have been using quite a few products on my skin for the pimples (Proactiv Advanced Blemish Treatment and Clean & Clear Acne Moisturizer). For moisturizers I have been using Proactiv Green Tea Moisturizer, Laneige Pore Trouble Emulsion, H20+ Green Tea Antioxidant Face Complex , and Estee Lauder Hydra Complete (night).
My Thoughts on Proactiv Advanced Blemish Treatment:
I have used this product a few times. I first tested it on my boyfriend because he gets pimples on a more regular basis than I do. One time, he had this HUGE pimple, I applied the treatment on a few times for two day but there seem to be no change. The first time I used the treatment on a pimple I had I also saw no change.
However, I decided to give it another try on an extremely painful pimple (it was large and was under the skin more so and very red & swollen) and I was desperate to make it go away! It was the worst kind of all pimples that hides underneath the surface of your skin. Surprising, it did work this time! The size, redness, and pain reduced and it eventually went away.
This past weekend I also got the chance to try out Proactiv Refining Mask....
When you first apply a coat on to your skin, there was no special tingly feeling or anything different like other face masks I have tried in the past . Unlike other face masks, the product is very light when it is applied.
You guys are going to love this.....
...............I got my boyfriend, Eric, to test this face mask out with me!
After ten minutes or so (when the mask is completely dried), we washed it off with luke warm water. It was kind of difficult to remove it from our face (but I think every face mask is like this). Eric hated this on the other hand, I think it was because he was a guy and had no idea what washing on a face make would be like.
After patting my face dry I felt a difference, my face looked more radiant. I had to apply a moisturizer on to my skin because the mask did dry out my skin quite a bit.
I was very surprised about the outcome. My face felt very clean and refreshed. I thought my complexion improved a tad bit also!
That was my thoughts & review on Proactiv Refining Mask and
Advanced Blemish Treatment. Please note that these products were sent to me and I did not purchase any of them. Although, EVERYTHING I wrote was my honest opinion and experience with the products. I try to be as honest and unbiasedas possible!
