Proactiv is a name most people will be familiar about when it comes to acneic skin care.
I am trying the Proactiv Oil-Free moisturiser, which is very welcome on my breakout prone skin.
Many a time I talked about my acne and scars, how difficult my skin is and how some products just don’t agree with it. I am happy to say this moisturiser is very light – you don’t really notice it’s been applied as it is quickly absorbed, delivering a good amount of moisturisation.
It is fragrance and oil free and non-comedogenic, absorbing excess oil to help skin look good. The fact it has SPF 15 and sits very well under makeup (primers, foundation, the whole lot!) makes it a very good day moisturiser for oily/acne prone skins.
We should always emphasise how important it is to moisturise even excessively oily skins. Contrary to what many think, oiliness doesn’t mean hydration, so it is necessary to use a moisturiser that doesn’t contain oil but still nourishes the skin, especially if you are using harsh products to treat acne.
My skin received it well, it was very gentle on it, gets absorbed very quickly and there is no residue. I am now using it, alternating with other favourites, in my morning routine.
