Proactiv Refining Mask

Loving the Proactiv Refining Mask it feels really refreshing on the skin. In the instructions from Proactiv it’s says “use 2 to 3 times a week” but because I don’t have acne but the occasional adult stress related/hormone breakouts I use this as needed or once a month for deep cleaning. It goes white on the skin and smells pleasant. Some of the ingeredients include: Sulfur 6% acne treatment, kaolin, and tea trea oil.

The Duo includes: skin guarding balm, and hair removal cream. It’s nice to see that a trusted skincare brand comes up with an hair removal product and all I’m thinking is quality (what can I say the power of branding).
