When I was younger, my skin care concerns were very minimal. As a teenager I had the occasional breakout, but nothing that made me panic. Fast forward 10 years later when I’m in my early 30’s and have three children, and my face is a mess! What gives? Adult acne can be frustrating and discouraging. I already have to battle other skin concerns like fine lines, dark spots, etc., but blemishes? In my 30’s?
Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Proacitv+. I received samples of Proactiv+ to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating. Regardless, all opinions are my own.
As you probably know, I am very cautious with ingredients. I have tried every natural solution available, and although I see occasional improvement, I was definitely open to trying something else hoping for long-term improvement. I have one side of my face that is particularly stubborn, and if you pay close attention, you may notice I rarely show that side of my face in pictures. I’m extremely self-conscious about it, and even without makeup I feel like it’s still pretty noticeable.
Proactiv Plus appealed to me because it is a 3-step skin care system not only designed to fight acne, but also offers additional skin care benefits as well like improvement in texture, tone pore appearance and brightness.
I have been using Proactiv+ for just over one month twice a day as recommended. I have definitely noticed improvement in my skin’s tone and texture. Although my problem area is still a bit of a problem area, after comparing the “Before” and “After” pictures I can see there is a difference! The difference in my skin health is definitely apparent, and the blemishes aren’t as apparent.
I am definitely going to keep using it regularly because I feel like I could finally have a solution to my blemishes. My skin definitely looks and feels healthier, and I feel like the blemishes will continue to diminish. The only disadvantage I see is that my skin does flake now, and when I’m putting on my foundation, I have flakes that can cause a mess while I’m doing makeup in the car (which I do a lot!), so I may have to switch to a powder to avoid this problem. If my blemishes continue to diminish I won’t have to wear it at all, though!
The blemishes on my chin are pretty much gone, and see how my pores and skin tone have improved all over!
I am definitely glad I took a chance with Proactiv+. I love the way my skin looks and feels now, and I can’t wait to see continued results. I love the 3-step system and particularly love the Complexion Perfecting Hydrator. My skin feels so soft after applying!

I have TERRIBLE skin, and I have for as long as I can remember. I was actually one of those kids who was bullied in middle school AND high school because of my acne. I still struggle with acne today, at 25, and it’s worse now that I am pregnant and have extra hormones running through me. I would love to try this out one day. So far I have not found anything that helps my skin, and I have been trying to clear it up for almost 15 years.
That is hard. 🙁 Although I didn’t start getting acne until I was an adult, I know the frustrations of trying so many things that just don’t work. It’s frustrating.

Thank you for your review 🙂 My daughter has the worst acne and nothing seem to help and I’ve been wanting to try Proactive for awhile.
