Happy Friday everyone! We had the pleasure of attending Proactiv’s “Pop up” experience today… and as the name suggests, there were a lot of cool popping experiences! Don’t worry, not the pimple kind (save that for extractions at the spa.) There was popcorn, pop rocks, soda ‘pop’, and bubblewrap galore! We even got to pop a few munchkins into our mouths. Proactiv is super excited to introduce their new proactivMD line, and they came in with a pop, today. (Okay, I’ll stop with the pop jokes.) We got to learn more about the products, in this fun, interactive and bubbly experience!

Oh, and did we mention that celebrity actress and model, Olivia Munn was there? Cue the heart eye emoji’s everyone, we even got a live, in-person testimony from Munn, telling us how much she loved the product! Her skin was gorgeous so we’re super excited to try it out for ourselves. We’re hoping to transform into a celeb model too. Well, we’ll have to find that part out for ourselves…

ProactivMD has four easy steps to it,

The Adapalene gel is what’s so revolutionary about this launch. It’s a retinoid cream that the FDA has recently passed to allow over the counter instead of prescription. Retinoids are suggested as the first line of defense by the Academy of American Dermatology (AAD), to stop and treat existing acne. Until recently they had only been available for purchase with a prescription.

Proactive is the first brand to bring this acne treatment gel over the counter, and we love it! The full set goes for $29.99 which is super affordable for something that will REVOLUTIONIZE your skin. Retinoids are very similar to vitamin A and the terms are often used interchangeably. Retinoids like Adapalene promote the shedding of dead skin cells, preventing them from getting clogged in your pores/causing acne. It also helps reduce inflammation, which is perfect if you’re mid break out and wondering how this treatment is right for you. The whole set will leave your skin glowing, refreshed, and blemish-free.


Let’s go a little more in depth into the other products from the line.
