Do You Work Hard to Hide Your Rosacea Like I Do? Win a Prosacea® Care Package

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Prosacea for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Prosacea Before

I’ve had redness on my cheeks since high school and years ago when my dermatologist diagnosed it as Rosacea he told me that I’d have to get laser treatments to get rid of the redness. Unfortunately my insurance wouldn’t cover laser treatments so I learned over the years how to conceal the redness with makeup and always do anything I can to keep it from getting worse, like using sunscreen daily and wearing large sunglasses that cover my cheeks.


Recently I had the opportunity to try Prosacea Medicated Rosacea Gel – it is dermatologist recommended to treat and control rosacea symptoms like redness, irritation and bumps. Since I suffer from all of those things I was very happy to give it a try. The gel is light and goes on very smoothly so I’ve been wearing it under my makeup and then putting it on again before bed after I take my makeup off for a couple of weeks.

Prosacea After,

Although I can still tell where the redness is on my cheeks the Prosacea Medicated Rosacea Gel has really calmed it down and I don’t think that most people could even notice it anymore. I’m excited that the gel has also reduced the bumps that I tend to get in that area.

If you also have issues with rosacea then I’d highly recommend giving Prosacea a try so you can heal rather than conceal your redness and bumps. Like with everything in your medicine cabinet, please make sure to read and follow all label instructions before using.

Adult Blemishes and My Proactiv+ Review

Disclosure – I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Proacitv+. I received samples of Proactiv+ to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating.


When I was younger, in high school and college, I had really good skin – thank you mom for good genes! I rarely if ever had any breakouts at a time when it was a pretty big issue for many of my friends. My skincare routine back then consisted of washing my face in the morning and again at night to remove my makeup before bed. Now that I’m in my 40’s I’m getting breakouts on a pretty regular basis and it’s been driving me crazy. It seems like I’ve tried every product on the market and none has really been a good solution.

I still take pretty good care of my skin, I clean my face twice a day and exfoliate a few times a month, but my old routine isn’t working for me anymore. I’ve tried creams, ointments and masks to keep the breakouts to a minimum but the bumps keep showing up, especially around my mouth and on my cheeks. I have a full time job and it’s embarrassing to show up for a meeting with big zits so I keep concealers and powders on hand to hide them the best I can.

Proactiv+ Review

I would much rather be able to control my acne breakouts than have to try and hide them so I was very happy to try out Proactiv+ and see how it would work out for me. Proactiv+ is a three step system – first you do use the Skin Smoothing Exfoliator, next you apply the Pore Targeting Treatment and finally you use the Complexion Perfecting Hydrator.

The Proactiv+ Skin Smoothing Exfoliator has benzoyl peroxide in it and you can feel it lightly scrubbing your skin. After using it the first time my skin felt smoother and now that I’ve been using it for about a month I can really feel a big difference in the texture of my skin. The Pore Targeting Treatment is a light benzoyl peroxide cream that is spread on thinly after exfoliating. The Complexion Perfecting Hydrator has salicylic acid in it and is a heavier moisturizing cream that goes on last. Honestly, I was a little concerned the first time I used this cream because I thought it might be a little too heavy for my sometimes sensitive skin, but it feels great going on and absorbs quickly so it doesn’t feel like too much on my skin.

Although the breakouts haven’t completely gone away, they are much lighter and less frequent and I believe there will be fewer of them as I continue to use Proactiv+. I’m thrilled to have found a system that is easy to use, quick and simple to apply, and that has helped to brighten and smooth my skin while at the same reducing my embarrassing acne breakouts!


$5 Off $10 or More DHC Order

Valerie Bertinelli just described DHC Deep Cleansing Oil as one of her “beauty must haves” in the September edition of Prevention magazine and that was the first time I’d heard of it, but dang she looks great for her age so I made a mental note.  Well I just found this deal where you can get $5 off orders of $10 or more at DHC through October 31st. You can get free shipping too if your order totals over $85, but there are lots of things I’d like to have below $15 including the small bottle of DHC Deep Cleansing Oil at $12.50, and the Eyelash Tonic that’s on sale for $10.  The DHC products are olive oil based and are said to deliver much more radiant skin.  I’d sure like to give it a try at this price, and I love that all orders also come with four free samples.
