Beauty Road Test: Proactiv Deep Cleansing Wash
Get head-to-toe gorgeous skin with Proactiv’s Deep Cleansing Wash.
Oh Bettys, this is slightly embarrassing. Every summer like clockwork, I break out. Yup: It gets hotter and suddenly I am breaking out on my shoulders, back and decolletage. URGH. I’ve tried everything from baby diaper rash cream to corn powder (seriously) and nothing works. This summer it got worse because I decided to work out every day — am I a glutton for punishment or what?
When a bottle of Proactiv Deep Cleansing Wash ($16.95, proactiv.com) came in to our office, I snagged that baby faster than a dog grabs a frisbee. The Deep Cleansing Wash is made for your body and all those fun spots that breakout at the worst time of year: Your shoulders, back, legs and, dare I say it, your butt.
I started using it daily. First I got a bit more of a breakout — and I freaked. Then I realized that the cleanser was actually pulling out all the junk, and by day 5, my breakouts — okay, zits — were minimal to gone. And I mean GONE. Really and truly gone.
Yup, it works. However, if you’ve got sensitive skin like mine, I’d recommend using it once a day in the shower, not twice.
It’s nice to know that I can wear a vee-neck without throwing on a big chunky necklace to hide you know what!
