Proactiv+ Skin Care 3 Step System for Spot Prone Skin Review

I might have dry, sensitive skin but it's still prone to spots and blemishes. It's difficult to tackle problem areas without making my skin dehydrated and dull. That's where the new Proactiv range comes in. The Proactive+ range is exclusively formulated to provide hydration while tackling blemishes deep down. Using a Smart Target Technology to deliver more salicylic acid straight to the pores leaving the rest of the skin fresh, healthy and spot-free. Proactive have taken it one step further with the plus range providing dual-therapy anti-blemish skincare. Celebrities like Ola Jordan and Nicole Scherzinger have tipped it as a beauty must have. If it's good enough for them...  


This exfoliating facial cleanser is step one in the Proactiv+ range and is perfect for sensitive skin. The gentle exfoliating beads get rid of dirt, oil and unblock pores without being rough and abrasive. I think this might be one of the creamiest exfoliators I've ever used. My skin didn't feel tight and sore, nor was it left red after using it.  With it being paragon, oil and PEG free it's suitable for all skin types and can be used day and night. 

Proactiv+ Pore Targeting Treatment Facial Cream 
(Full Size £29.99)
Step 2 of the Proactiv+ Core System is described as the blemish-fighting powerhouse. It's very lightweight and packed with skin soothing ingredients like liquorice, honeysuckle and aloe vera. Who knew liquorice was good for calming the skin!? The gel-like cream sinks into my skin leaving it feeling soft and looking healthy. I've not noticed my pores looking minimised but it's definitely helped my skin hold onto moisture. 

This is step 3, the final step in the core system, the product that I think it's the most important, and most effective for dry, sensitive skin. The Complexion Perfection Hydrator works to hydrate at the same time as tackling redness and post-blemish problems like dryness, marks, texture and oil. This gel-like moisturiser glides on the skin and leaves it feeling and looking radiant. An essential for my skin.

Proactiv+ Skin Purifying Facial Mask
(Full Size £24.99)
An added extra in the 3 Step Core System the purifying facial mask is great for a weekly pamper, but is gentle enough to be used up to 3 times a week if you're skins having a tough time. It's a sulphur mask formulated to draw out excess oil helping to prevent new breakouts. With antioxidant vitamins and natural botanical ingredients it helps to nourish and hydrate.  

I'm really impressed by the Proactiv+ range. My skin looks and feels healthier, more radiant and most importantly blemish free (most of the time). The Core System Set is designed to last for 30 days, though I think they might last a bit longer, especially the exfoliator. For 4 products at only £20 it's great value. I'd highly recommend trying out the Core Kit. As for the full sized products, they seem to be a bit pricey. I'm not sure I could justify splashing out that much on any of the individual products.
