Review: Proactiv Green Tea Moisturizer


I don't get how Blogger manages to make all of my pictures so blurry. I know I don't have the best camera in the world, and they look good on my computer, but when I upload them to Blogger they end up looking terrible. Anyone else have that problem?

Anyway, this review has been a very long time coming. I have mentioned this product here and... huh, it feels like I've mentioned it a million times. Guess not! I should have though, as it has become one of my all time favourite products.

Ingredients

"Infused with Green Tea EGCG, an antioxidant, our moisturizer provides hydration to dry, thirsty skin, without the greasy feel. A moisture rich blend of botanical and emollients help to nourish and soothe upset skin. Skin feels softer, smoother and refreshed." -from tube

I received a smaller tube of this product last summer in one of the Shopping Channel mystery bag things, but I passed it over to my mom with some other stuff I didn't think I'd get around to using. She had said how great it was, so when I got this full size tube in a second Shopping Channel haul, I decided to keep it for myself, and I am so happy I did! I haven't used the Proactiv acne system, so I wasn't sure if I would benefit any by just using the moisturizer, but I'd say that it is a universal product that would work on any skin type.



This moisturizer is what I'd call a gel-creme type texture and it applies lightly on skin. I tend to have dry skin so I definitely need moisurizer, but I hate the ones that feel hardcore and are heavy, this one is light and fresh feeling. It has a light scent, nothing obnoxious, but a scent like most 'unscented' type products have. It absorbs quickly and it doesn't leave any sort of film or oily feel afterwards. I can feel the difference it makes on my skin as soon as I apply it. I works that fast! I love that this moisturizer is effective on my dry skin all while being light. A major plus is that it doesn't leave me with an oil slick when I wake up in the morning. I have had what I thought were the perfect moisturizers leave me with oil by the time I get up, which is a task as I rarely ever have oil issues.

All in all I love this product and will most definitely purchase again. The Shopping Channel sells it for $30 CAD - or they did, their site is down so I can't double check- but I think that is a great price for a product that works so well. It is also available from Proactiv for $18.00 USD, but I can't verify if it is the same large tube.

Have you tried this product? What did you think? What is your favourite moisturizer?

  2. I absolutely love this product! I stopped using it a while ago though because Proactiv is so expensive. If I had the money, I'd buy it again for sure!
