I've used ProActiv since my 1st year in highschool. My grandmother gave me the 30-day kit and it comes with free refining mask and I've tried it for a month. I know it's a little bit price-y but it's really worth it. So I am really happy when ProActiv told me that they can be my sponsor! Perks of being a blogger! hahahha My elementary days was really tragic I had these mega pimples and it was really irritating because I'm not used to having those things. The refining mask may have a quite stinky smell but for me, it does really works well. In just 10 minutes, if you'll put a thin layer over your skin, you can feel that it's getting a little bit more tight and when you rinse it. You can see that your skin is lighter.
