Over a month ago, I decided to give Renpure Solutions a try. As you already know, I am a Wen girl at heart. I love what the cleansing conditioners do for my hair. In fact, it’s one of my little known beauty secrets for women of color and mixed chicks, such as myself.

Proactiv Plus is still a three-step system, but it has an exfoliating cleanser, targeting treatment, and moisturizer. This newer system minimizes pores, reduces redness and irritation, diminishes post-acne marks and scars, hydrates and softens skin, and enhances the overall appearance of your skin.
