We are all experiencing drier skin right now thanks to the perfect storm of central heating, cold weather and more layers of clothing.
I have been following this product for many years as my skin was prone to spots as a teenager and young adult and latterly due to hormonal breakouts so i jumped at the opportunity to try it out.
Before I even tried out the products I noticed the packaging and branding and loved that I was so nice and clean and easy to use.
Proactiv+ Skin smooth exfoliator, Pore targeting treatment, Complexion perfecting hydrator & Skin purifying mask.
Suitable for all skin types and effective for those with spot-prone skin as well as those who suffer from occasional blemishes, Proactiv+ is a revolutionary dual-therapy anti-blemish and skincare system designed to promote a healthy complexion.
As required with any skincare regiment, it is advice to use the products in the order recommended. Starting at 1) The Skin smoothing exfoliator, then number 2) The Pore targeting treatment and lastly following with number 3) The Complexion hydrator and only using the Purifying mask as needed.
Following the order I found that the products really worked for my skin.
I do advice that the skin be damp before applying the skin exfoliator and to only use a small amount in the palm of the hand and then to work it into a lather on the face and then rinse it off. Following that move onto step number two and three. For me personally the process left my face feeling cleansed and extremely hydrated nd blemish free.
After using the Proactive + 3 step program I would highly recommend it to any one suffering from spot-prone skin and occasional hormonal breakouts.

Instant Fix Concealer
The Instant Fix Concealer by Proactiv+ another one of those products that I have always wanted to try.
What does it say on the cover? Instant Fix Concealer by Proactive+

It’s natural-looking coverage for flaws, redness, unexpected pimple pop ups and even dark circles. Skin is left looking smooth and flawless with a beautiful complexion!

How to use:
Dab onto blemishes, dark spots, dark under eye circles and other imperfections by using a concealer brush or fingertip. Layer and blend as required.
It was great that it came in a small compact case perfect for popping into my handbag for touch ups during the day. The concealer comes in 3 shades of which I used the darkest one, which I found okay and did work for my skin-tone.
But I do think as with most makeup companies they could go a little darker to accommodate darker skin-tones.
The coverage was brilliant and eliminated my dark under eye area as well as other darker areas on my skin instantly. It went on smoothly and did not leave my skin feeling caked as some concealers do.
I would recommend and purchase this product myself again, especially if they do go a shade darker, so it can be mixed as the other three shades found in the compact I was unable to use because it was to light for my complexion and so a bit of a waste. Or maybe just do 2 shades in a pack.
