Any ProActiv Brides out there???

Recommended Posts

I've been doing a little research into ProActiv and was wondering if anyone else has or is using it??? Any advice, pros, cons, what not about this product??? I don't have bad acne, but ever since I had my son I have more break outs than ever and it's driving me crazy :(

Hi kya101!

 

Proactive is a product that will deliver results but from what my clients tell me, it is a bit drying.  If your acne is not too bad try Aveeno products.  They are inexpensive and gentle.  Keep your hair off your face( wear it in a loose pony tail when you go to bed), wash your face morning and night, lower your intake of starchy foods and drink LOTS of water (it flushes out all those toxins).

I have tried pro active in the past but found it to be extremely drying.  I now use the clinique 3 step system with great results.

Thanks for the tip, I do think I'm going to try something else because I already have pretty dry sensitive skin. Where can you clinique from??? I may give that a try! Thanks again!!!

You can buy it at the Bay, Sears, and some Shoppers Drug Marts.  You can even buy it online through Sears.

I tried Proactiv for myself and didn't like the results.  It didn't help much at all and my skin was left kind of a weird texture after months of use.  Now I use a mild acne cleanser from Neutrogena with the clarisonic skin care brush (from sephora or ulta--i know it's kind of expensive, but so worth it) and have not had a breakout in months.   I've gotten more compliments on my skin than ever in my life.  I've always had horrible skin--blotchy, acne, acne scarring.

Thanks for the tips, I'm glad I posted this because I totally changed  my mind about trying it. I'm going to the city in a few days and I plan on getting something there to try. Thanks again everyone for the awesome tips!!!

I think it depends.. my skin isn't that bad, but i've found that when I'm on it I have no issues with my skin.. I got to the point a couple of months where I started to see no difference so I stopped using it.. and as soon as I stopped using it my skin got irritated.. so I tried other things (Murad - sell at sephora) but it wasn't like Proactiv.. I figure since it works, why change it so I went back on Proactiv and I think its worth it.  My gets facials now and then and the lady who does them recommends Proactiv.. she says people don't use it long enough to see the results and stop to early.. ok now I feel like a Proactiv consultant haha.. but I don't buy directly from Proactiv, I felt like I paid more since they take out money monthly.. I just buy them from the Proactiv kiosks in the mall.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
