Does Proactiv 365 Really Work?11:43 PM
We've tried acne and skin solutions in the past, and usually, we get turned off by products that require many steps to keep the routine up. We were indeed a bit intimated by the Proactiv 365 kit, as well, although after having the opportunity to contact customer care experts to get customized assistance for our skin type, it certainly helped with the concern.
We applied the product nightly (both my daughter and I) for over a week to try it out. I have to say, that once you get the steps down (there were 4 for me), it was automatic after a few days. I did notice that the day after the very first night I used it, several blemishes practically disappeared, and some of the larger ones were noticeably drier and smaller.
One thing that I didn't like about the routine was that I often went back and forth between being a bit too dry to having a few new breakouts from the moisturizer. Once I found a balance, however, (using the moisturizer every other day), I was fine.
I found that the product wasn't too harsh and was pleasant-smelling. The bottles, while small, seemed to last quite a while. If you have someone in your family who struggles with acne, or you just get tired of breakouts from hormones, I think it's worth a try. You may find it to be the structure you need to take your skin care seriously, and there was definite improvement in my skin after just one week.
Proactiv 365 includes the products in the starter kit, as well as 24/7 support to help you with issues or questions via email, chat, or phone. It also includes access to a 500+ question and answer database, and customized consultations with the doctors behind the brand. My kit also included free 68-page pocketsize book, The Doctors' Secrets to a Lifetime of Clear Skin, by Drs. Rodan and Fields.

I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Proactiv and received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
