A few weeks ago, I was at Walmart and had to check out the beauty aisles. What did I see? Proactiv products by Equate!
The box says “compare to Proactiv Solution active ingredients” and the ingredients do look similar! I used Proactiv products for a few months during my teenage years and the system really helped my skin clear up, but it was too expensive at the time. I was about to give Proactiv another try when I saw the Equate Acne Treatment System on the shelves : )
The kit also came with a bonus mask, just like the Proactiv kits. If I remember correctly, this kit was only $12 *jaw drop* Proactiv is about $50…My favorite thing about this acne treatment kit is the benzoyl peroxide–that ingredient works way better for my skin than salicylic acid.
Bonus mask just like Proactiv products…
If you’ve tried the mask by Proactiv, you know it smells like its main ingredient–sulfur. Ewww lol But it works and so does this Equate version! I just dot it on if I get a pimple and let it sit for 15 minutes. Then I wash my face and go on with my routine as usual. The pimple goes down really fast : )
Here are the ingredients and instructions listed right on the back of the box. That’s very convenient to see before you buy. So far, I can say that this system is working just as well as the Proactiv products, so if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to Proactiv (and don’t want to be locked in to a subscription/deal with crappy customer service/have to wait for delivery) check out the Equate version!
Now I just have to find a good eye cream…
What’s your favorite skin care brand? Any eye cream recommendations for me?
