New Proactiv Canada Blog Tour with Giveaway

When I was a teenager and my skin would break out, I couldn't wait to get older so my skin would clear up. But guess what? I'm 30 and I still break out. I've tried many acne products and the only one that I found really worked for me was Proactiv. My skin cleared up and I no longer had to worry about waking up with an embarrassing zit. After a while I foolishly decided I didn't need to use it anymore because my skin was always clear. That was a mistake! I started to break out again and knew I had to start using Proactiv again.

So the timing was perfect when Mom Central Canada invited me to participate in the 30-day Proactiv Challenge. I am on day six of using the New Proactiv 3-Step System and can already see the difference in my skin. Here are the details of the system:

The 3-Step System: Designed for daily use in the prevention and treatment of blemishes,

it gently cleanses and exfoliates while targeting blemish-causing bacteria in the pores.
  • Step 1: Renewing Cleanser: A unique oil-free formula, with exclusive micro-crystal pharmaceutical-grade benzoyl peroxide, that contains smooth, tiny beads to gently exfoliate dead skin cells and other impurities.
  • Step 2: Revitalising Toner: A refreshing, alcohol-free toner with glycolic acid that helps balance skin tone and remove dead skin cells to reveal the vital, radiant skinbeneath. Its special formulation to balance skin's natural acids includes witch hazel to refine and purify pores and aloe and chamomile to soothe and soften.
  • Step 3: Repairing Treatment: A light, oil-free lotion containing exclusive microcrystal pharmaceutical-grade benzoyl peroxide. The Repairing Treatment penetrates deep into the pore to help heal blemishes and help prevent future breakouts. The advanced delivery system is safe for the entire face and any other blemish-prone areas.
