I was surprised when my friend told me that I am getting fairer and "clearer" (I got the bad genes which has sensitive skin and prone to acne). I told her maybe because I had passed the puberty stage, and probably because am still loyal with Proactiv (add the fact that I am happier with what I am doing now despite lack of sleep and unhealthy diet).
I suddenly remember my long on and off relationship with Proactiv Solution. I first received the package from my sister 10 years ago from the US. She told me that it was new in the market and is the best skin care set for acne. I was a bit hesitant to try it. First, because the packaging is not the girly, pinky type of bottles. The solution is packed in bottles that gives an impression that they are medicine and that you should take them seriously. Second, I never know anything about Proactiv. When I checked the site, Vanessa Williams came up on the webpage, and I thought everything is just for promotion. Third, I felt that there is no cure for my skin condition but to take pills which control sebum production.
|Daily Oil Control Moisturizer, Refining Mask, Oil-Free Moisturizer - I got ample stocks!|
Other Proactiv Solution products aside from the basic 3-step system.
The package says I can return the set if I am not happy with the results, with full money back. I had to try the set out of desperation; plus the fact that it states that it combines all the active ingredients which fight acne. It contains not just one ingredient which is mostly present in a product, but Proactiv Solution has them all.
It worked a long process to renew my skin. It is not like any other products that would give you the result in just 7 or 30 days. I religiously followed the routine and it does work wonders. At some point, my supply of Proactiv was stopped because of shipment issues; so I even asked friends who were visiting US to buy a set for me just so I could use it. I was surprised when Watson's finally offers Proactiv in the Philippines. I was even amazed when I saw celebrities like Mandy Moore and Justin Bieber sharing their Proactiv stories.
Ok, don't go looking for me and expecting a smooth, clear face worthy of a TV commercial. I can say that Proactiv helped me managed my acne especially in occasions like parties, events, and job interviews.
Teens and those who have severe acne are actually lucky that Proactiv is now in the Philippines, and even available in Mall kiosks. I am happy with the thought that it would save me money from ordering in the US, and that I can conveniently buy a set from Trinoma Mall. I am not surprised that Proactiv Solution is the number 1 anti-acne product in the US ; and I am sure that it would soon be in the Philippines. People would tell me that it is too pricey for a skin care product, but it is all worth the money.
