My skin was never usually something I struggled with. To be perfectly honest, as long as I'd taken my makeup off with a wipe and moisturised before I went to sleep I was satisfied it was looked after and didn't tend to have many problems with it at all. And now, as an influencer, I'm lucky enough to receive enough beauty samples and PR packages that there's not much need to purchase new products as I'm always trying new things, but because of this I also never really have a solid skincare routine. And as I've gotten a bit older and my lifestyle has changed, I've found myself tackling frequent breakouts and battling blemishes more than ever before.

In the last year I've upped my travel game like crazy, pretty much every month I'm somewhere new and as grateful as I am to have worked this into my job and be able to work on the go, it's had a pretty annoying impact on my skin. Changes in climates, aeroplanes, skin-clogging SPF's and let's face it - 3 days of glitter and drinking at a festival in 30 degree heat does nobody’s skin any favours. My simple and mis-matched skincare routine didn't seem to cut it anymore and just when I wanted to be fresh-faced and embracing natural beauty, I’ve experienced breakouts, bumpy skin and blemishes that instead have made me self-conscious of going bare-faced this summer.

So, when an opportunity with Proactiv+ arose to give me a six-month trial of their amazing products I practically bit their hand off. Having been familiar with their brilliant success stories via their TV ads and also through following some fellow bloggers progress that have used the products, I was pretty excited to get my hands on some myself. Not to mention this project was the perfect excuse to finally work out a strict, solid, but easy to maintain skincare routine that would suit my on-the-go lifestyle too. 

Proactiv+ products are known to target breakouts and blemishes in a simple 3 step skincare routine that, if used properly overtime, can also prevent new ones appearing in addition to addressing what's already there. Of course there are a few more products by Proactiv that I'm working into my tailored routine too. The Proactiv+ cleansing wipes were a godsend during my most recent festival in Budapest and I'm particularly loving the toner for a deeper cleanse. I also HAVE to mention the repairing concealer palette that I'm totally obsessed with - not only does it give perfect coverage, but the four shades act like a great little contour kit and it feels so good to know the makeup you're layering on top of blemishes is actually full of ingredients that help clear them rather than clog them up even more.


You can see from these 'before' shots that my main problem areas are whiteheads and blemishes across my forehead, blackheads on my nose and blemishes around my lip and chin areas. I've been using Proactiv+ daily for just over two weeks now and whilst there was initially a few more breakouts at first, I'm already noticing some improvements in the softness, hydration and clarity of my skin. I can't wait to see some further progress and of course share it all here with you - stay tuned for the next update in my Proactiv+ journey!

  1. DIVORCE AND MARITAL BREAKTHROUGH

    It all started when my husband cheated on me with another woman unknowing to him that the woman is a wizard, the woman castes a spell on my husband which made my husband change his feelings towards me and the kids and broke our 6 years marriage. i was confused and stressed because of the pains of being a single mother, when i called a friend and explained my marital challenges to her, she instructed and directed me to contact a great powerful spell caster called Dr. Ugo Wonders living in Florida. i contacted Dr. Ugo and explained my problems, he assured me his help and it was 100% guaranteed. i provided the materials for the spell and in 48 hours, after Dr Ugo Wonders of generalspelltemple@gmail.com finished casting the spell, my husband was free from the evil woman spell and he came back home to us a day after begging us to forgive him. i was so shocked and short of words and here i am today happily testifying so the world can know how this great man helped me with his real powerful spell.
    To every one with marital problem, divorce issues, lost lover or any relationship related issues, you can contact Dr. Ugo wonders the ultimate spell caster via his email address generalspelltemple@gmail.com or call his mobile number directly on +13863369876
