Proactiv skincare launch

Proactiv is a new specialist skincare range from the US, aimed at solving specific problems such as acne and spotty outbreaks – for people of all ages and men/women.

And since it’s also great value is it growing something of a cult following already in the UK. Proof of that is the fact that Boots ran out of the cleansing bar (£14.99) and had to keep a list of customers who wanted to get their hands on it.

The bar’s ingredients do not dry or irritate the skin and can be used by all skin types.  It helps to slough away dead skin cells and unclog pores, reduing and preventing a whole host of nasties such as whiteheads, blackheads and future breakouts!

US actress, Julianne Hough is the face of this product – she’s already well-known Stateside but we will hear more about here in the UK when the romantic film, Safe Haven, in which she stars with Josh Duhmand goes on release.

The range includes products that suit oily skin and also non-oil based mineral makeup powders especially for skin that breaks out easily.


We particularly liked the Replenishing Eye Serum.  It contains all the quality ingredients you would expect from a product three times the price, such as retinyl, ubiquinone, and vitamin C. All products are allergy-tested
