ProActiv+ 3-Step System review

Recently, I was sent the ProActiv+ 3-Step System skincare kit, which aims to offer clear, radiant skin in a few weeks. 

I don't have the worst skin (I'd actually say it's already pretty clear), but obviously I do suffer from the odd blemish here and there that I always want to get rid of. So I gave ProActiv+ a go for 4 weeks. 
I received an Instagram comment warning me about ProActiv and how its products have burnt people's skin, which kind of freaked me out a bit. But I gave the products a go anyway as I undertook my research and found out that ProActiv completely revamped their formula.


Skin Smoothing Exfoliator 
The Skin Smoothing Exfoliator is a refreshing facial cleanser with tiny exfoliating beads, that is step 1 of the 3-Step System. To be honest, I was a little skeptical about using this face exfoliator wash as I haven't got the best track record with facial cleansers with the little beads. My skin is so sensitive that many facial washes with exfoliating beads that I've used in the past, has left my skin feeling so itchy and then makes it break out in spots. But this one was absolutely fine! The beads were tiny which meant that they didn't scratch my face. 

Pore Targeting Treatment 
Step 2 was the application of the Pore Targeting Treatment; a cream that is supposed to reduce the visibility of pores. As time went on, I did begin to realise that my pores were much smaller. 

Complexion Perfecting Hydrator 
Hydrating your skin was step 3. ProActiv's Complexion Perfecting Hydrator is a lightweight lotion that smoothes the skin. I found that it makes an excellent base for make-up, so you don't need to apply a primer. 

Cleansing Body Bar 
This is my absolute favourite product from the kit! I use it everyday in the shower, and it cleanses the skin, leaving it feeling so fresh. It's non-scented too- which is something I look for in body soaps. 

Skin Purifying Mask 
After 2 days of using the products as part of the 3-Step System, I noticed that two or three pimples had broken out on my face. But I'm aware that your skin has to get used to new skincare products. But this had given me the chance to try out the trick of the Skin Purifying Mask, which is to apply a bit of it overnight on the pimple. It worked a treat- and the pimple amazingly reduced massively in size by the next morning! 

Results: 
After using the 3 step system for 4 weeks, I was very pleased with the results, including: 

- Less breakouts, which- to me was very impressive, considering my skin tends to break out in quite a few pimples during PMS. 

- Pores being visibly much smaller. 

- Blemishes from previous breakouts having almost vanished after fading away. 

- Super smooth, hydrated skin.

ProActiv+ 3-Step System is priced at £24.99 and can be purchased HERE
