Proactiv Review First Impressions

“This post was sponsored by Proactiv as part of a Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review”

Acne is the worst kind of problem to have to deal with as a twenty-something year old woman, or at any age! Even for me as a 29 year old, I’m still struggling with a pimple now and then. And it’s not fun. At all. I mean, should I really be dealing with this still?!

Luckily for me, Proactiv decided to send me some top notch products to help me get my “teenager” issue under control.Acne is one of those problems I’ve had ever since I was young and it’s never really gone away. It affects my confidence and self esteem in a tremendous way. I always end up spending a ton of time with my makeup trying to cover up my imperfections. It’s stressful and ends up costing me a lot of money because I have to buy a ton of cosmetics trying to “cover up”.

Proactiv is one of those companies whose products actually do what their supposed to do. Who would’ve thought? And I’d love to give you guys my first impressions of their products!

Getting Rid of ACNE. Once and for all..

I received my package in the mail and was already impressed with the company from the packaging. Everything was so neat and in its place and had directions right there on the box! It was incredibly easy to read and figure out how to start my daily routine.


The bottles have numbers on them which makes use incredibly EASY! All you have to do is start with one and go from there 😉 I started with the renewing cleanser. I have to say the scent was very pleasant. I like cleansers that do not have strong overpowering scents. They seem to irritate my skin as well. This one does not. It has very small beads in the scrub that give a thorough cleanse. It also is the kind of cleanser that gives you that “cool” feeling when you are scrubbing. It feels SOOOO good and fresh.

I use the revitalizing toner with a cotton ball after using the cleanser. It gives me that tingling feeling on my face so I know I’m using a toner that works. If you have never used a cleanser that gives that tingling, you haven’t been using the right one!

I was also sent a moisturizer with spf 15 and an advanced daily oil control. I have a super oily forehead and nose and after just one use this product helped a ton with the shininess and oil.


_Before_ Picture Proactiv

I’m really hoping to improve the oiliness going on with my nose and somehow make my blackheads appear smaller. My before pic is not great.. Stay tuned to see how well Proactiv has been working on me! And be sure to check them out at
