You've likely seen the television advertisement's where the likes of Jorgie Porter, Nicole Scherzinger, Hayden Panettiere and even Adam Levine have boasted the miracle works of Proactiv + treatments and how it 'transformed'  their lives - so when I ordered from ASOS a few weeks ago and got given a voucher to try a 30 day kit for £20 (plus p+p) I thought: why not give it a try?

So I did, and here's what I think:

I will tell you all now, I was not eagerly awaiting this kit to come though my door to be my skin saviour, I honestly didn't want to go into this with the highest hopes because as a teen I suffered with my skin - I still do now(!!) - and I had it in my mind that the only thing that can really give you fully clear skin is prescribed treatment (which is mainly why I take the pill).

But after three weeks of using it my skin really has improved!

I've been genuinely shocked with it.
I use the three-step kit twice a day and it really has changed my skin.

The three-step kit contains the Skin Smoothing Exfoliator - which I use with the facial brush - a Pore Targeting Treatment toner and a Complexion Perfecting Hydrator moisturiser.

The exfoliator leaves your skin feeling scrubbed, clean and fresh, but not like you've scrubbed your skin raw as the exfoliating beads are very gentle

With the toner you only need a very small amount a it goes a long way - it's an odd sensation as it makes your skin feel a bit tight.

Once the toner is absorbed fully the moisturiser leaves skin feeling smooth and soft.

My only criticism is the moisturiser is heavier than I would typically use day to day and once I wake up in the morning my skin can feel almost oily - it's hard to describe, my skin doesn't feel greasy, but it does feel like it needs cleansed.

Over all I've seen a huge improvement with my skin - I've obviously had the odd blemish when my hormones have changed within the month, but using the products had made it go down quicker than usual.

The mask I got free doesn't feel like your typical face mask that goes hard or drys, it feels more like the Liz Earle Hot cloth Treatment, as a good comparison - and even with it's slight clinical smell it leaves skin feeling lovely and refreshed.

So, would I recommend Proactiv+?

I think I would, especially for those who are at the end of their tether with skin treatments for adult acne or frequent blemishes.

I wouldn't say it's 'transformed my life' - but then again, unlike those celebs I've not been paid a few grand to do so - but I will say I've seen a huge positive improvement with skin over the last month.

Will I purchase again?

Possibly, the price puts me off, as to repurchase they are a bit pricey.
But the pay monthly option is tempting and it would take off any pressure or stress of going out to but new products when the others run out.

I would love to know if any of you out there have jumped on the Proactiv+ bandwagon, or if you have any other similar kits or solutions you'd recommend, get in touch or comment below!

Ciao for now,
