Yes..I have to admit it. I have a tween. You know the sometimes adorable, sometimes heartbreaking and oh so frustrating age that is no longer child, not yet teenager. Sigh. I have one of those in my house. This little tween means the whole world to me, so when she suddenly started having trouble with pimples I wanted to help. No Mama wants to see their baby struggle with self esteem, and let’s face it, you don’t feel your best with a big honking zit on the tip of your nose.
We went to the drug store, picked up and tried about four different face washes and topical treatments. Ug. Drying, abrasive, too much for this young one’s skin which is still so baby soft. Besides that, nothing really worked. Then entered Mom Central with the opportunity to try the New Proactiv 3 Step System. I’ve seen this product line on TV countless times. Katy Perry uses it! Could this be the magic fix we are looking for? Something to help as my babe makes the transition from child to Teen? Also something to help me with the occasional surprise pimple. Not my kind of surprise thank you very much. Worth a try. We accepted the offer from Mom Central, and together are taking the 30 Day Challenge.
For 30 days we are going to use Proactiv’s three step system. It is designed to gently cleanse and exfoliate as it targets the blemish causing bacteria trapped in pores.
The super simple steps as described by Proactiv!
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 skin beneath. 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.
Our system arrived, I paired it with some cute wash clothes and we are all set. Mom and Daughter are going to try this system together. Bond over skin care. Love.
Another bonus, I get to share the love and offer five readers a full size Proactiv Green Tea Moisturizer! Value $33.00 Canadian.
