Over the last 8-10 months, I have greatly reduced the amount of products used on my skin...with pretty good results. However, just recently (as I lost my summer tan), I noticed my skin was really dull and I had brown spots on my face (cheeks). I have been using these pads about every 3 days for the last 2 weeks and my skin is amazingly radiant and the brown spots are really clearing!!! I had no idea it would help with the spots!! I can't believe how even my skin tone is! Love it!
Awesome. Simply Awesome. Keeps my skin smooth and baby soft, I use these a couple nights a week before bedtime... really makes a difference in the overall tone and texture of my skin. I really notice a difference in feel and brightness if I don't use these for a week or two! These do sting, but that's how you know it's working. :) Remember to use sunscreen too - these will make you more vulnerable to sun damage, that's how well they work!
Made me break out!!! I just needed something that would make my past acne scars less noticeable, so after researching and seeing many great reviews I bought this. This is the third time I've used it, and I have followed all the directions such as using it every other day, but tonight I noticed break outs all over my face and even small bumps on my forehead. I may be over exfoliating, not sure, but will only stick to using this once or maybe twice a week.
I have been using these very faithfully for about 5 years or so. Maybe thats why people tell me I look like I'm 22 when I'm 27. Helps with post acne spots, lines and texture. People always want to touch my face because they say it looks so smooth. And it is! Love this stuff.
I had been using the Peter Thomas Roth peel pads-those were a lot more ($40.00 compared to $15.00 for Avon) and those I was pleased with-those you used and then rinsed your face- with these you don't rinse- so the AHA's have a chance to really do something.
I was worried that my skin would become irritated, these do sting a little, but once I put my moisturizer over top it soothes my skin.
I have noticed a good improvement in my skin- the sun spots are fading quite a lot and my pores are diminished. I have been using this nightly only for about 2 weeks. Love it.
Let me start our by saying at the beginning of the summer I started taking YAZ and broke out horribly on my jawline.I was at the dermatologist a couple times and even got the cysts injected with cortisone. After the 3rd month of YAZ, I stopped taking it and my acne has since subsided , a few clogged pores and little white heads that sometimes turn into cysts were left behind.(I think the yaz basically purged all of my pores) I ordered these Texturizing Peel Pads from my aunt, who is an avon rep. I had seen great reviews on this product on youtube. I would have to say that this product is my own personal spa treatment. I would also call this the product of ALL PRODUCTS! I love it. Mind you, I do not just sweep these pads over my face as directed, I press down and basically scrub my skin as gently as possibly with them. In spots where I have a deep small pimple or clogged pore, I press down hard and leave the pad there for a bit to get deep down. *Be careful doing this because you can burn layers of skin off . (which I have done to get deep into the skin and extract the gunk! ) Neosporin works if this does happen to you. After a couple of slight burns (because I got a little crazy with the pads) my skin is like BABY SKIN! It is like ths skin I had in 8th grade. Beautiful and pimple free. The tone is even and it is very healthy looking. I use the pads as needed. Sometimes , I may even chose to use the pads 3 days in a row and I have never experienced any kind of side effect from that. The directions say to use every other day. The only thing is , they are very ADDICTING! I recommend washing your face at night, dry , and then using the retexturizing peel pads before bed. I guarantee you will wake up to a glowing healthy complexion. LOVE THIS STUFF, WILL BUY AGAIN AND AGAIN! The only reason I did not give this product 5 stars is that is seems like it is a little slow at taking past red marks away. Other than that, it is a miracle worker. I feel that eventually the red marks will fade.
I'm really impressed with this product! I got it off ebay after watching a youtuber talk about it, and it really gives me results. I have oily skin and some acne problems, for ref. Please note, I don't use exfoliants normally (brown sugar scrub every few weeks, nothing more), so if you do, perhaps it won't do much.
First use: skin felt really smooth.
Second and third uses: still smoother skin, a bit of radiance too :)
This has made my acne scars fade so much!! I don't think exfoliating with small particles has ever done much for them, but this is fantastic. I seriously recommend trying this out if you have acne scarring. This stings in some areas, but my skin has gotten used it (minus one lippie). This feeling may have been exacerbated by my harsh acne treatment (I'm using AcneFree) but after the third use I didn't get any redness/heavy stinging. For 12 bucks, I'd say this is pretty dang good. I almost don't need makeup, and I can certainly skip the primer since my skin is so dang smooth.
Not happy with this product. The two-step, which was discontinued was much better, IMO.
I saw no results with this one at all - which did surprise me because I'd read the acid in this one is stronger than in the 2-step?
It's certainly simple enough to use and a decent value. However, for me, it doesn't yield any useful results. It just simply made no difference to my skin at all.
I'm so disappointed that this replaced the 2-step, since that was HG material for me..
I love this product I was using this product for almost a year (stopped to try new cheaper products) and started back 3 months ago. Eventhough I am 34 I still get constant break outs and this product clears up my stubborn acne. If I do get a pimple this product makes it heal fast. My pores look smaller and skin tone more even. I don't have any wrinkles yet so I can't comment on that. The only thing I don't like is that my face is a little oiler when I use this but it is not a big deal. I even have my mom using it and she likes its too.
I was a bit sceptical when I bought these because it just looks to me like a quickie face wipe. But the reviews on MUA were good so I thought I would give it a go. I'm glad I did because this is an excellent product that I'm sure I'll be using for a long while to come. Right from day 1 I could see an improvement in the blackheads and open pores over my nose. It does also claim to reduce wrinkles and a lot more. I'm not a believer in miracle products and I can't say I have found any improvement in this direction yet. But I am content with it as it is.
I think they are quite powerful as you get a tingling, almost stinging sensation when you use them. It recommends you use them every other day and I have stuck to this as my skin can be a bit sensitive. It is extremely easy to use, being a pad you just wipe it over your face, with the rough side on the skin. It instructs you to avoid the eye area.
I thought these were cheap when I first got them but it turns out they were on special offer - £6 for 30 pads. So, at every other day they last me about 2 months. When I went back to the site they had shot up to £18! I waited for another special offer and have now found them at £11. So it's worth hanging on for a special offer! But even at £18 I think I would continue to buy them. really pleased.
