When you look in the mirror what do you see? Your #TRUEselfie or a blemished and boring version of yourself?
With the pressure for us as young women to be nothing short of perfect at a seemingly all-time high, Proactiv, the skincare brand used by over 20 million people worldwide as the solution to blemished skin, wants young women to re-evaluate themselves and has launched the #TRUEselfie campaign. I was excited to be asked to participate which included trialling the products for over a month and I can honestly say, my skin has never felt better.
I’ve never had any major issues with my skin apart from the occasional breakout but what I do lack is hydration. I found that Proactiv was great, especially as winter has well and truly hit Sydney. It’s the season where we need to take extra care of our skin to ensure it doesn’t dry out.
There were three major steps in the process including:
- Skin Smoothing Exfoliator
- Pore Targeting Solution
- Completion Hydryator
I used the products once daily as the range contains some fairly strong ingredients and a nighttime clean suited my routine best as I work early mornings and go to the gym in the afternoons. The exfoliator is gentle with micro beads and definitely cleans away any dirt and impurities. The second step is the Pore Targeting Solution which I was apprehensive to use as I generally only like to use a product like this when I’m experiencing breakouts. However, it was super lightweight and easy to apply. I didn’t use it every night but found it kept any potential problem spots from surfacing. The final step in the process was the Completion Hydryator which was my favourite product. – a silky-rich hydrator that was intense but really lush and super hydrating. Also included in the pack were Mark Fading Pads which are great to pop in your handbag for overnight trips and sty-cations when you’re always guaranteed to get that one pesky pimple!
Overall, I found the range really easy to use and great for my skin. I think Proactiv is synonymous with teenagers and fighting strong acne but these particular products are less intense and perfect for all ages. For those hitting their 30’s like me I’d also suggest incorporating a serum into your routine which will start to assist with the dreaded aging process we now have to worry about… So come on lovelies, embrace your #Trueselfie today!
Have a great weekend!
Lotsa love, LM xx
