Being Proactiv – update (again!)

So we’re nearly a month into the trial of Proactiv skin care (if you’ve missed the other posts have a look here) and so far so good. Here’s Gemma’s latest thoughts on how the products are working for her…

“It’s hard to notice difference when I see my skin every day but I have started to notice less redness around my cheeks and the spots that have come through are very limited and in the same place: the edges of my mouth and on my chin. So far I’m loving it and haven’t had any problems as it’s definitely making a positive difference to my skin. Even after I took these pictures and moisturised my skin it seemed to improve even more. Last Saturday night I went out and it was the first time I’ve worn proper full makeup since starting the Proactive routine and I noticed the difference then! My foundation went on sooooo much smoother – even on my nose which always looks awful! I’m so pleased with this already as it’s making such a difference to not only my face, but to my confidence too.”

So it really seems to working for her. It’s nice to see that it’s clearing up the problem gradually rather than simply being a quick fix. Stay tuned for more updates coming your way!

    I'm glad that ProActiv seems to be working 🙂 She's also really brave for showing her skin without makeup and being honest about how it's going. Great post – I hope her skin continues to get better 🙂 xCatherine

    It really does seem to be working. She's braver than me as I don't think I'd get my naked face out for the globe to see!

    This product does work, i tried it after being plagued with spots since entering my 20's, only thing is that it is very harsh (maybe because im a sensitive soul) but using it twice a day left my with red, sore and flakey skin after only 5 days of using it.I decided to give my face a chance to heal and try again and i am now using it one week on a morning and one week on a night and it is much better, no redness or pain. And the plus side is my face is spot free, smooth, blackhead free and i actually dont wear foundation as much as i used to as i dont think i need to hide behind it!.Hope your friend gets the same results!
