Pro Activ+ 3 Step System

When I was approached to try some of Nicole Scherzinger's beauty staples. Of course I was intrigued as to what the wonderful Scherzy uses to stay looking gorgeous. One of these being the new ProActiv+ 3 step system for spot prone skin. Having used the Original ProActiv, I asked to try this as my skincare regime was becoming a bit muddled. 

Here's a little about the brand itself: 

"Throughout their professional careers, Katie Rodan, M.D., and Kathy Fields, M.D., have been on a mission to help blemish sufferers take control—so that the physical and emotional challenges of breakouts no longer need to be a fact of life. Their vision: Healthy, beautiful skin for all.

Today, the Proactiv® branded products have sold to 20 million customers worldwide, and is trusted by women, men and teens." - ProActiv Website

This is a brand which has been championed by many a celeb which not only includes Nicole but Adam Levine (Maroon 5 Frontman), Julianne Hough (Actress, Dancer, All Around BABE!), Ola Jordan (Strictly Dancer) and Katy Perry (Also an all around BABE!) I have loved ProActiv since I first tried the skincare wipes last year in Vegas. 

When I received this it was presented in a cardboard box which looked really clean and lovely. Inside the products have steered away from the dark teal, white and orange packaging and now opted for a more simple White and Light Teal colours for it's packagine which I really like because it does look fresh and new. 

Inside the box was not only the 3 Step System there were extras that I was really pleasantly surprised with - Skin Purifying Mask and a Cleansing Body Bar.

Now I aimed to use these products for 30 days to see the effects it had on my skin. I've been using it on and off since the 20th September. I was using this product alongside my sister who often suffers with spot-prone skin who has been using it consistently. I had to take over a week out of using it due to an illness causes cracks around my nose and mouth and because all these products contain the spot fighting active ingredient of Salicylic Acid, I could not use it because my skin had become overly sensitive.

All of these products were good for me, I did see a reduction in the redness of my blemishes but it wasn't stopping the little pinprick spots from emerging on my skin. My sister on the other hand experienced amazing results from using the 3 Step System Daily, her skin had cleared up within a week of using it and is looking to repurchase.

For me the best product out of these is the moisturiser. Even though it contains the Salicylic Acid, which is a natural drying to the skin ingredient, it left my skin feeling normal and soft. 

The ALL NEW Proactiv+ 30 Day Core Kit includes your 3-Step System for beautiful, clear skin: 
+ Skin Smoothing Exfoliator (2oz/60ml) 
+ Pore Targeting Treatment (1oz/30ml) 
+ Complexion Perfecting Hydrator (1oz/30ml)
And if you order from the website you get the Purifying Mask with this bundle all for just £19.99.

I do recommend getting the 30 day kit which is a bargain at under £20 to make your mind up about ProActiv+ first because as I mentioned before it won't always work the same on the same skin types.

And if it's good enough for Scherzy then you should give it a try because it could be good enough for you.
