A Proactiv Solutions Product Review
From An Ex-Acne Sufferer
You’ve seen the Proactiv Solutions infomercials everywhere. And top celebrities are now endorsing it. But does it work? And is it worth the money?
Proactiv Solutions – What it Is
Just in case you didn’t know the Proactiv Solutions kit consists of 3 products; Renewing Cleanser, Revitalizing Toner, and Repairing Lotion. They have other products but these are their core acne products.
How Proactiv Solutions Works
The acne fighting ingredients in Proactiv Solutions are benzoyl peroxide (both in the cleanser and the lotion) and glycolic acid (in the toner).
The benzoyl peroxide in the lotion kills the acne bacteria while the glycolic acid in the toner helps shed of excess skin cells.
What’s Different About Proactiv Solutions
So what makes Proactiv Solutions different from the thousands of benzoyl peroxide products out there…?
Well, honestly…. there’s not a whole lot of difference. The single greatest difference is Proactiv Solutions uses a much milder dose of benzoyl peroxide (2.5%) then most benzoyl peroxide products. And it adds to that the glycolic acid to help exfoliate the drying and peeling benzoyl peroxide causes.
Overall, it tends to be far less irritating then most benzoyl peroxide products.
Does it Work? What You Can Expect From Proactiv Solutions
Honestly, don’t expect any miracles. For many of you it will help. But for just as many others it will cause the same dryness, redness, irritation, and peeling that most benzoyl peroxide products cause.
Should You Invest In It?
First understand Proactiv Solutions does not cure acne. It only helps to reduce some of the symptoms of acne.
It’s only a temporary band aid . For lasting, long-term freedom from your acne you’ve got to fix the root internal problem causing it. How? Checkout my special report, The ONLY Path to LASTING Acne-Free Skin to find out how.
Having said that…
For some of you, it’s going to be worth a shot. Even though it is a little pricey you don’t have too much to lose by giving it a try (it does carry a 30 day money back guarantee).
My Experience With Proactiv Solutions
Before I cured my severe acne I tried thousands of topical acne products, including Proactiv Solutions.
Most irritated the [email protected]#! out of my skin. And frankly while Proactiv Solutions helped it also irritated my skin. But to a much lesser degree of most topical acne products.
It’s going to help some of you deal with acne symptoms. But don’t expect any miracles.
My Best Advice if You’re Thinking About Giving Proactiv Solutions a Try
First understand that you’re never going to cure your acne from any topical acne products (Proactiv solutions included).
Sorry, but you just can’t do it.
You’ve got to directly attack and fix the internal problem causing your acne. And topical products simply can’t do that.
So my best advice is go ahead and try some topical acne treatments like Proactiv Solutions. Find what topical acne products best help you deal with the symptoms of acne while you’re fixing the internal problem long-term.
