This is my first time using a product with Gloycolic Acid. This claims to resurface the skin and refresh it as well. It has Hyaluronic Acid which hydrates the skin this is really good for the skin period. I used this once and it removed all the dirt from my face and neck,yes it did burn but I think this is normal it's removing all the bad stuff. I can say that my face felt soft and looked brighter in the morning. This helped smooth out my fine lines my skin really gravitated to this product. I really like this and I think it's going to improve my texture. I am going to use this once a week twice if I wear make up. This product does feel that it can over dry the skin if used often at least for me. I will update this in a month!

Omg no. These have such great reviews and I wanted them so badly to be the last little 'umpf' to my routine but it did NOT work out for me at all!!!! I have to almost thank this product though, because I finally realize that I can't use AHA's or probably high level BHA's at all. I should have known this since I've tried eleventy million times, but it never quite clicked. I thought it was the consistency of other products, like gels, that would clog me up and that pads would be great. But from the reaction I had, I realize now it was always the glycolic acid.I used these for a little over a week, maybe like 2 or 3 nights and then one night I wouldn't. So I used them very little, and these are a fairly low dose of glycolic acid. (I've used up to 8% in the past, maybe 10%.) The first few days were great and I loved them. So I really thought when little bumps came up that it was my clogs being exfoliated and released, and that I had to keep at it. But it quickly became almost like a rash. Some would sort of swell up and become whiteheads but some wouldn't. I have heard you can over exfoliate so I cut down but also started to do some digging and I realized this happened to me before and the common ingredient was glycolic, not a carrier or base ingredient like I thought before. Btw I do have some reactions to certain base/inactive ingredients, so that's still a concern, it just happened to not be the case here.Now for most people these are great and so I can't give them a bad review just because I'm sensitve. So I put it at a 3 which is "good" in my opinion, but I wanted to warn others who potentially might be sensitive to acids. (I had to rate them something). So if you have a kind of bumpy rash it may be that. I asked others who use GA including these and they say that shoudn't happen, so just be on the lookout. At least now I know.

Been using these for a month now so feel I can write a reliable review. I do think these work quite well but not 100% sure because they have made my skin 'purge'. I don't get breakouts on my forehead/nose and I haven't had any breakouts there since using these pads so they definitely haven't broken me out but i do normally get breakouts on my cheeks and sometimes on my chin and these pads seem to have made my cheeks/chin worse which makes me think its a skin purge. However, I used to have a bumpy forehead and bumpy areas around my nose and these have seriously made such an improvement to these areas like they're so much smoother and my foundation goes on a lot nicer! so all in all i can't really tell if these work for me because I'm getting a lot of acne looking spots on my cheeks and jawline but maybe thats because these increase cell turnover rate!?!? Also, these don't irritate my skin at all, no tight feeling, no chemical feeling. Ive heard that these can leave a bit of a sticky/tacky feeling but i don't notice that

These have really helped my skin!Glycolic acid helps get rid of dead skin cells so new, fresh cells can form and make your skin look better and brighterI use this two or three times a week and I think it makes a big difference! It's so easy, just wipe a pad or two across your face.The ingredients are actually pretty decent for a drugstore chemical exfoliate. keep in mind this is supposed to take care of dead skin cells so it isn't going to be super gentle.I think exfoliating and cleansing is such a great thing to get in the habit of doing. I usually like using AHAs and BHAs, but glycolic acid is a form of AHA and it's a nice tiny change for my skinUsing this before serums and moisturizers really help those products get in deeper to my skin and work betterthe brand came out with an extreme version of this which i will pick up next! Just by looking at the ingredients, I think they really improved it and stepped up their game.

UPDATE: I have used this for 1 month now and am happy to say I've had like 4 pimples, and coming from someone who would get double that and more a month that's miraculous. A couple of days ago I found a BOGO at CVS and bought the Nip + Fab Glycolic scrub and the glycolic gel cleanser. After a couple of uses I can say I really like those as well. I will never be without this line of products. Seriously , what are you waiting on, your skin will thank you.I don't have any holy grail make up or skin care products, I tend to run out of something and try something different. This, however, is now my holy grail skin care product. I have had problems with my skin since hitting puberty, blemishes, oily, large congested pores, the works. These pads have changed all that. My pores, while still fairly large (nothing will change that) are clearer, thus making them less noticeable, my skin actually glows, and the best thing NO BLEMISHES even during TTOTM. I have used this for 1 month now and I couldn't be happier. The wipes do have a smell but it's nothing that bothers me. They don't burn at all. My dry patches have completely vanished. Did I mention no blemishes, seriously I was trying to think back to the last time I could say that I did't have atleast one pimple and I can't even remember, probably before puberty. My face is unbelievably soft and smooth feeling. The ONLY downside I can see is they do make your skin a little sticky. I have never tried to apply my Bare Minerals powder over it but I dont think it would apply well, liquid might be perfectly fine, I just haven't tried either, but it's not a problem since I like to use the wipes at night before bed. Again, I just cant say enough how much I love these.As a sidenote, I've read some moisturizers, with a higher ph than the glycolic product you're using, can neutralize the acid. To get the most out of the glycolic acid it's recommended to wait at least 30 minutes before moisturizing. My routine: Very gentle wash with Garnier Charcoal Scrub Dry face completely then apply Nip + Fab wipes Let product dry 10 min or so then apply Nip + Fab Glycolic Serum Wait 30 min then moisturize

As someone with sensitive, dehydrated combination skin that's actually oily in the cheeks and dry in the forehead contrary to almost everyone, it's taken me such a long time to get my skincare right, but I finally have. However, after finding my perfect serum + moisturizer combination, my skin was still uneven and a bit bumpy, with very large visible pores. I took it to twitter to ask Ms. Caroline Hirons what would she recommend and she said (unsurprisingly, because I read her blog) acid toning would be the answer but not too strong because of my sensitivity. The most recommended option were the FAB pads, but they're very expensive and not available here, so I came across the Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix range at the drugstore and thought "yes!". I have been using these pads now for a month and a half, only at night because of my sensitive skin, and the results aren't miraculous, BUT they're visible. Although the skin remains a little red and sticky right after I use them, I continue with my skincare routine as normal and when I wake up in the morning my skin feels super soft, even-toned and the bumps in my cheeks have been reduced considerably to the point that there are barely any. I don't know how this would work out if I used it twice a day but I don't wanna risk it and honestly I am willing for it to take longer if the results continue being as good as now. Definitely recommend and would buy again!

My HOLYGRAIL skincare range! I'm so so happy I discovered these, they were half price along with the cleanser so I bought back ups too. Since I've been using these along with the cleanser and scrub, I've had so many compliments on my skin about how its so smooth and glowing, even have male friends asking me what I use lol! Most negative reviews just seem to moan after a day or week well I'd say give it a good 2 weeks to a month to see real results, you need to give it time have realistic expectations ladies! I hope they never discontinue this range!

I am really happy I found this product. I just about gave up on chemical exfoliation. I tried clinique mild clarifying lotion but didnt notice a miraculous difference and so it became another mundane toner. The clarins brightening exfoliator was just too heavily fragranced for me and the high amount of alcohol burned my skin. The clinique turnaround radiance renewer broke me out terribly ( I think I was allergic to the acid they use). The Paula's choice 2% BHA liquid was so tacky, sticky and just plain awful to apply and lastly, the dermalogica skin renewal was very expensive but I also didnt notice a big change.Unfortunately FAB and Pixi glow tonic is not available in South Africa. I saw this and bought it on a wim. I didnt have any expectations. I got the glycolic fix pads which contain 2.8% glycolic acid. I figured this would be more gentle than the 4% serum.I have been using this for 2 weeks now (only at night). The difference is subtle but pleasant. My skin is more smooth and even toned. I use less foundation in the morning and am able to skip concealer. I have dry skin ( and its winter now in South Africa) and this has controlled my pesky flakes around my nose. Its not plastic surgery in a jar but it does what it promises and for a drug store item that is marvelous. I believe the price is very reasonable if you buy this in the UK but I paid quite a bit extra due to import charges etc ( but still cheaper than dermalogica). I have fairly ok skin, normal pores and no acne scarring. I only have a few sun spots on my nose so I dont know how this will fair to improve those problems but I do think all skin types will benifit, but I think this will definitely be a product to use for the long haul (because it is so gentle) if you want to see any improvement in scars or pigmentation. I actually want my husband to use it (he has oily/ acne prone/sensitive skin) and see how it works for him.These facial pads are definitely worth a try... Im keen to try the serum next.

I've repurchased and purchased backups of this product. It's amazing, I have dry, sensitive, normal - oily t-zone. My clogged pores are cleared, skin is smooth and bright. I looove this product. I went from using 8% AHA to this which is 4% - it's so much more effective and not as harsh. I only use it 2-3 times per week as my skin is sensitive. Been using it for 2 months now. Those who have used PTR and have gotten great results with those pads may not like this product as it's weaker 4% AHA.

I love these! And I felt compelled to write a review because I feel as though a lot of the low-rating, "meh" reviews came from people who had unrealistic expectations of this product.The pads have a fairly low percentage of glycolic. Low enough, in fact, that some even use them twice a day. I use them once a day, and they're perfect for my sensitive skin. The people who commented "meh, I saw nothing" and then explained that they prefer their MUAC peel-- of course the MUAC peel is going to be more noticeable, and if your skin is hardy enough to withstand a heavy-duty peel, a super mild one like this isn't going to make much of a difference. But if you are either looking for a beginner AHA product or if you just want something gentle (ie you have sensitive skin, or just prefer milder AHAs for daily use), these pads are great. I definitely notice that my skin is smoother when I use them vs when I don't.
