I admit, I am a bit of a natural beauty junkie. I use a lot of DIY formulas and brands that take great care in including all natural ingredients with no harsh chemicals or fillers, BUT I have been a fan of the Proactiv cleanser for years now. It has worked to help clear up random breakouts and blackheads so when Proactiv+ was introduced I got nervous. I didn't want them to discontinue my good ole original Proactiv! But they've begun to :( so I made the switch (with a backup of the original formula safely in the cabinet).
Here's how it went.
My skin: Fair. Combination.
Formula: Proactiv+ is noticeable silkier and creamier with smaller exfoliation beads. It has been modified to include both glycolic acid and benzoyl peroxide, and formulated to be paraben free. I like the texture and ingredients of Proactiv+ far more than the original formula.
Use: The use instructions are the same for both products. Massage a nickel sized blob into skin for 2 minutes, rinse clear. Proactiv+ feels better upon application, smooth and no chemical burn. My skin also feels significantly more moisturized after drying than with the original formula. My recurring dry skin under my nose and on my cheeks is significantly reduced.
Results: Aside from my skin feeling noticeable less dry, I've noticed fewer pimples and blackheads. My overall skin texture has improved and has more of a radiant glow.
I would absolutely recommend making the switch to the new Proactiv+ formula if you are still on the fence. The quality of skin loving ingredients has significantly improved to include not only acne but dullness, dryness, and redness. Exactly what every girl needs in a facial cleaner.
