This past month, while I tested the new Proactiv+ System, has been an interesting one. I’ve traveled more than any other 30-day period in recent memory–spending every week in a different city, from the East Coast to the West Coast (2x!), to the Gulf Coast, with a couple stops in the Midwest along the way. Needless to say, while my frequent flier account has been looking good, my skin was not as lucky.
Fortunately, most of the Proactiv+ products are TSA friendly, so I made sure to pack what I could every time I got on the airplane. Thanks to the product’s targeted treatments and ingredients that promote overall skin wellness, my complexion hasn’t taken that much of a beating, despite the drying plane air, long days, and the occasional face-on-airplane-window sleeping position.
My favorite product in the lineup is the Skin Smoothing Exfoliator. Even though I was not bringing this along during my travels, it was the first thing I reached for every time I was back in my own shower. The gentle scrub melts away any makeup (or lets be honest, dirt and grease) after a long day of travel and helps to brighten my complexion and soften skin immediately. I follow up with the Complexion Perfecting Hydrator and feel pretty comfortable in my skin for the rest of the day.
My go-to product while traveling is the Targeted Pore Treatment, which I unfortunately ended up needing to use more frequently than I had hoped. The bacteria-killing formula was key for when I woke up with pimples on my cheek after passing out (20 minutes at a time) on some gross airplane seat. The product helped to minimize redness and clear up the blemish faster. I also always packed a mini tube of the Skin Purifying Mask, which was always a treat (and a necessity!), to put on at the hotel after a long day.
Ready to try the new Proactiv+ for yourself? I’m giving away a 3-piece set and announcing the winner on social media tomorrow. Stay tuned!
