Review – The Proactiv+ Mark Fading Pads.

28 Jan

I was really excited to try these because I love any beauty product with any acid as an ingredient.  I’m sick, I know.  But hey, it keeps your skin freaking amazing.

So, let’s get down to business with these Proactiv+ Mark Fading Pads.  As you may recall, these were in my January Ipsy Glam Bag.


I haven’t tried anything from the Proactiv line before.  Even though I don’t have any marks or acne scars fade, I was excited to try these Mark Fading Pads because they boasted a 2% salicylic acid solution.  I am a huge fan of salicylic acid and sadly it usually comes in cleansers or gels as an acne treatment.


What is it?

Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid derived from the bark of a willow tree.  It basically makes your skin shed.

Ok, so what do these Proactiv+ Mark Fading Pads actually do and why are you so excited about them?

1) My skin was super soft

2) Pores were teeny tiny

3) Anything that was waiting to erupt under the dermis – GONE

3) Glowing skin

The bad?

As with any Practiv product, you have to get a whole collection to get these.  Since I don’t have acne, I’m spending gagillion dollars on acne treatment. Duh.

But now I had a taste of the salicylic acid goodness,  so I went internet hunting.  I wanted a toner or pads that I can use in a similar way as The Fading Pads.  I may have found it…will review it soon.

Peeled skin is happy skin!

    I’ve never used any of their products either, but I am intrigued!! Anything to keep my skin from looking so dull and chapped this winter!!

      I really wish you could buy their products a la carte. Some of them sound like they would fit in nicely in my routine. I don’t really want to go the Ebay route, so I’m hoping to find some substitutes. 🙂

    Hmmm I know about Proactiv – they have good stuff but you have to buy everything! and when I tried it get rid of a few pimples, I only wanted the toner and the lotion. The wipes seem like a really good idea. I also love acid. I have KP (skin condition) and use various RX and OTC acid lotions to get my skin to shed. I have an RX for retinol, and use it on my face to help with hormonal outbreaks, and it leaves my skin sooo soft.

      LOVE Retinol, but it sucks it’s by prescription only.

        my dermatology PA is nice and pretty much gives me all the prescriptions I want 🙂 skin creams are really expensive though, I went through a shock when I got to the pharmacy.

    I use Philosophy Help Me which is an AMAZING gentle Retinol and I just tried out Olay Regenerist Microdermabrasion & Peel System that was sooo good! I would HIGHLY recommend both 🙂 x
