PROACTIVE skincare

Evening guys & dolls 

After seeing many an advert of Katy Perry flashing around her beautiful skin I decided it was time to try the Proactive skin care routine.

Another reason I decided to try this out was that after browsing the website and looking at the ingredients in the products I discovered that they contain Salicylic acid. Now this is a key ingredient in the cream I use to fight of my psoriasis, and I always find keeping my skin clear of spots whilst not causing my psoriasis to break out quite hard.

Now salicylic acid is a skin thinning ingredient, so it helps to to remove the exposed layers of skin ( not in a harsh way), so I guess this is the reason it may work for both kinds of skin impurities.

I started this routine on Friday, and am already seeing results.
My set of products look like this :
And for £39.95 I got :
120 ml Renewing cleanser
120 ml Revitalising Toner
60 ml Repairing day lotion
30 ml Repairing night lotion
28g Refining mask.

The price may sound expensive, but for the amount of product £8 each which I guess is still more than the average, but if they work it's definitely a good price.

The next kit up from this is around £60 and contains an extra moisturiser and a travel bag, so I didn't really think that one would be worth it.

So my plan is to continue following this regime and keep you guys updated on how it's going.

So to start us of I'm gonna do the unthinkable.

Here's a picture of me without make up.

Beautiful, i know :S. As you can see I have quite uneven skintone and a lot of patches of dry skin. If the picture quality was better you'd be able to see a few spots around my chin and lower cheek.

So I plan to keep you lot updated with maybe weekly posts on my progress? Let me know if you'd like that please.

So that's it for now. Im planning my next blog post to be a 'whats in my make up bag' or a review of some of my new make up. So keep seated for that.

Much love Rosettes xx


  1. I've been thinking about getting this too- my skin is really similar to how you described yours- uneven skintone, dry patches but oily/sometimes spotty chin, and I'm still searching for the perfect skincare to solve it! Looking forward to seeing how it goes for you, definitely would like weekly progress!xx

  2. i've always wanted to try this, but £39+ seems a lot of money :/ xx

  3. I've been considering it, so I would LOVE to see how it works for you! :D

  4. Looking forward to seeing the progress your skin makes. Hope it's a worthy investment!

  5. I've actually just started using clinic skin products and im really hoping they get rid of my scars. If not imma have to try proactive!

  6. loving your blog :) xx

  7. Good luck, you've got a gorgeous face and I struggled with really similar acne. Proactiv didn't work for me, but I use Skin ID now and it's made a huge difference. Can't wait to see how Proactiv works for you! It's worked for a ton of my friends.

  8. It is already summer in China, while there are still some pimple on my face, what should I do with them? I will be thankful if you can offer some helpful advice. Greetings from China and welcome to have a visit at my blog.

  9. Thank you for dropping by my blog. Hope these products work for you.

  10. Hey Emily,
    please take a look at my blog for a big surprise! I deserved it and I just wanted you to know that I love your blog :D

  11. I'd love to see how it works for you! I'm on the look out for some new skincare as my skin is just awful at the moment! I'm having a mac lipstick giveaway at the moment and would love for you to enter! Good luck with PROACTIVE! x x x

  12. I used this in high school when my acne was at it's worst. It's really great about clearing up your skin in a gentle way. The toner is still my favorite that I've ever used because it's alcohol-free and it doesn't sting my skin.

    I hope this helps you!

  13. Im so glad someone has done a review on this because I have been wondering whether to go ahead and buy it after seeing all those late night teleshopping adverts on it!
    I agree with what emily said on the first comment and my skin is exactly like hers, i tend to break out on my and around my eyebrows.
    Keep us all updated, i really cannot wait to see the results xx

  14. Check out my blog, I have awarded you something! xx

  15. This is good to know. I have tried everything from Burts Bees but way to oily. I’ve tried every product too at whole foods almost. I do the at home facial with the Riiviva Microdermabrasion tool for my acne scarring and it’s terrific. Its here at
    Do you have any recommendations as to what avenue to take for mositurizing with out all the oily residue that happens when I use oils. Thanks
