Moisturize Your Skin While Braving The Elements...

This year it’s all about ME!

Yes it may seem selfish, but it’s a must. I’ve neglected myself for too long, and this is the year that my health and even my beauty will no longer suffer.

First things first, my skin is horrible! Not so much in the terms of acne or anything like that, but most of the time, and especially in the colder months, my facial skin is DRY, DRY, DRY!!! I hate it, the flaking, the redness, the itching, it’s horrible. I need to cleanse and moisturize more, however I’ve tried a lot of moisturizers and the only one that I’ve found to work so far, is over $60 a bottle (a small bottle I might add) and I really can’t afford to be spending that much, but now, thanks to proactiv, I’ve finally found a great moisturizer that’s affordable! I’ve never really thought of trying out Proactiv until I was sent an email asking if I would review it, when I hear Proactiv I think product for acne, but this isn’t the case with some of their products.

I could bathe in this stuff! The Proactiv Green Tea Moisturizer is a godsend to my face! The praise I can give it isn’t enough, you’d have to try it out for yourself to see if your skin would give it the same praises that mine has, but every morning I’ve been using this moisturizer and my skin has been so much better…Softer…Radiant! The moisturizer is nice and light and although it’s designed for acne prone skin, it works on my dry skin wonderfully! It absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy or oily afterward.

I’ve also been using the Proactiv Clarifying Night Cream which has been keeping my skin nice and soft while I drift off to dreamland. With the benefits of retinol it also helps out those lines and wrinkles we don’t want to happen, or see on our face. Again this cream is nice and light as well, no issues with me breaking out in a rash or anything, and my skin tends to do that with a lot of products.

The only complaint I have with both the Proactiv Green Tea Moisturizer and the Clarifying Night Cream is that the bottles are SMALL! They both come in a 1oz tube, and although I have found that you don’t have to use a lot of either cream, I would like to have a larger tube so I don’t have to replenish it so much. The Proactiv Green Team Moisturizer can be found for $24.50 on and the Proactiv Clarifying Night Cream can be found on as wel for $28.75. I’ve been using my products for almost a month now and I’ve still got plenty left, so for the prize and the size, it’s not all that bad, if I was running through it like crazy I’d probably have more of an issue with the price for such a small bottle.

I take orders for all Guthy-Renker products and Proactiv is one of the best sellers. I love the green Tea Moisturizer and the mask!
