Although I was very excited about these pads initially I ended up returning them and purchasing the toner instead. The first few pads in my package were extremely dry for some reason. Also, my skin is no stranger to glycolic acid or AHAs(I've been using them for over a year now). However these cleansing pads burned like hell! It literally felt like I was rubbing my face with sandpaper!

The toner is undoubtedly the better buy. I can see the toner lasting into the new year and beyond, whereas I'd be out of these pads by the end of November.

I liked these as well, and bought them in the 5% formulation. I have bought the generic ones as well, but I notice that those dry up faster since the packaging is not as air-tight. May graduate to 10%. Note, if you have never used glycolic daily cleansing pads, you should start at lower percentages and work your way up to 10%. If you start at 10%, it may be too much too soon. This is according to Dr. Denese's book, anyhow!

I actually liked this product and have noticed my skins appearance is a little better. Here's the thing, you can get Glycolix for less money and the ingredients are almost identical. Think generic vs. name brand asprin....just a little tip!

Oh. My. God. These are awful. My face literally felt like sandpaper after each use...not exactly the desired end result of exfoliation!! The SA at Sephora swore these were fantastic, but she had JUST given me a SkinPhysical and told me that my skin was very dry and dehydrated...why, oh why, then did she recommend I use this product? The packaging says right on it "For normal to oily concerns"...(I didn't see this until I repackaged it for returning) HELLO!?! Anyway, it might be good for someone with oily skin, but I think even normal skin would wither under these harsh pads. I can't remember if they are alcohol free, but they smelled really strong like rubbing alcohol. I already returned them after giving them a 3 day trial...no way, Jose. NOTE:: I originally thought that I had used these pads at a 5% concentration, so I reviewed that product first...I'm not sure if that product even exists. Sorry.

I have these in the 5% formulation. They have alcohol and menthol in them but it hasn't irritated my skin or has left it feeling dry and tight. There is a slight tingling sensation after using them and they are pretty expensive ($28).
My skin feels smooth and there is less shine in my t-zone.

I realize now why exfoliation is good for your skin - these glycolic pads have helped to even out my skin tone, minimize my pores, and more importantly, get rid of the sensitive areas of my face. I've heard a lot lately about how glycolic acid can help get rid of layers of old surface skin cells and I think that's how my sensitive areas disappeared. They don't look red or inflamed anymore - those areas (between my eyes, tip of my nose and my chin)are softer and smoother. I was a little worried at first about this product containing alcohol, but I tried it anyway since my face is combination, but more on the oily side in warm weather. It turns out that my face looks brighter and smoother. I use it at night after cleansing, then follow it with serums and a moisturizer. Great stuff!
