Takes a long time to work! When you first start using this product I experienced minor breakouts. These breakouts had very small and very fast healing pimples and it seemed to be wherever I had blackheads or whiteheads. The cleanser is gentle and not heavily fragranced and nice and bubbly :) if not for a bad experience with some bad sunscreen I would assume my skin would be almost completely clear. I would say it takes about 4 weeks to start working but it's worth it. My skin looks healthier, radiant and this helps even skin tone and I noticed the acne marks are taking less time to fade since I have been using this. I also use it on my chest and back and both those areas have completely cleared. The bottle can be finicky and the pump simetimes sticks but I love this product! Just remember it takes time like any GOOD skin care regimen should.
Yucky! This sunscreen absolutly wrecked havoc on my face. My skin had finally started to clear after using the aveeno clear complexion products for a couple weeks. I used this sunscreen because it was the only face sunscreen we had. It says oil free and non comdegenic but something is wrong with it. I used it at the beach so the fact it made me shiny I didn't really care because I was in the water mostly. After using this for about 3 days red bumps formed in clusters on my right cheek, a little on my left, my chest, nose and other places where I don't normally break out. It also managed to open my mouth, chin and nose area to blackheads and whiteheads that I'm still dealing with. While most of the acne has subsided by now I am left with a gazzilion pih marks that are going to take forever to fade. My moms skin even started breaking out in whitheads after using this and her skin is normal. I have no idea which skin types should avoid this I just hope no one ever has to deal with a reaction like this.
Treatments -Clean & Clear - Advantage Acne Spot Treatment

This spot treatment works wonders on my skin. My skin is often sensitive to spot treatments but this causes little to no peeling. If I feel a pimple brewing I can put some of this on and it either stops the pimple from ever surfacing or brings it to a head in no time. The smell can burn your nose and eyes as well as sOme minor discomfort to your skin. I find this works best BEFORE moisturizer or anything else. Cleanse skin, dry, put on the spot treatment to dry for 5-10 minutes and then apply whatever else you need to.
A whole year has gone by and I'm still using proactive. I figured it's time to give up. The system is great for initially getting acne under control but not so good at maintaining it. Even with oily skin, which isn't horribly acne prone but enough to be annoyed, and not really sensitive, this just dries my skin right out. I stopped using the toner and the repairing lotion after I got my skin under control As the just dry out my skin painfully. The toner is like a strong astringent and the lotion feels nice but it's so drying. The cleanser is ok, I never feel like my skin is really clean. I only wear a very sheer tinted moisturizer on my face and proactive has a terrible time washing that off. At this point I'm ready to say good by and try something new so I'm open to suggestions ;)
I wore this lipstick to my schools Grad Banquet as a photographer. It lasted well over 5 hours threw dinner, drinks, and talking without feathering or any other touch ups. It's a fairly moisture rich lipstick and my lips did not dry out. the price was right considering i usually will pay over $30 for lipstick but this was as good as the expensive brands. the only complaint was the smell. It smells a lot like playdoe but the smell does fade quickly. the only other problem is that when taking the lipstick off it stains and doesn't come off for a couple of washes. Overall a good product
Oh my gosh I absolutly can not live out with this mascara! It's amazing! My eyelahes are pretty long and curling on their own but are blond halfway up so I wanted a mascara that would darken them. Not only is mascara a perfect black color, it's brush separates every lashe when you start at the roots. It adds tons of volume without looking ridiculous and helps push and lift your eyelashes. It's a great buildable mascara too. The mascara is also good for lashes with all natural stuff and my eyelashes feel softer since I have been wearing in. It's a little on the costly side but completely worth it
This tinted moisturizer is great! It gives a nice sheer and even coverage which is all I need for my skin. It covers most redness from acne and acne scares but you will probably need a concealer for severe acne. I have a really oily t zone and dry cheeks and this has been able to balance both skin concerns. I could defiantly live without the shimmer but once the moisturizer has been applied its best to buff with a buffing brush or powder brush helps remove most glitter. The moisturizer is really thick and creamy which allows to glide and hide dry patches on my skin which is amazing! It's best to apply with your fingers and not to put on your hand then blend but to squeeze out a little out of time for the areas your applying this too. Is a littler dark fOr my fair skin But I can live with that. It's a costly $30 in Canada but when u go to the USA you can get it for $12. The packaging is absolutly great and super sanitary and a nice feeling bottle. Over all I really like this product and it's long wearing but could live without the glitter and it would be nice if it had lighter shades.
