I have been using these daily for about six weeks. I have sensitive skin and they exfoliate without causing any irritation. Very convenient to use, just swipe over face, neck, even hands let dry for a moment and you are done. This is the best product for exfoliation that I have found. Although First Aid Beauty has a similar product, cheaper.

Yes, these pads at $60 for 40 ARE expensive, but completely worth it. I Use them soley for exfoliation purposes as I have extremely dry skin and grainy exfoliation makes it worse. I cut them in half or even in thirds at a time (they are very wet) and use them daily in the morning. At this rate it will last you 3 to 4 months. I do not have flakey skin after a couple times using them. I was skeptical, but do try if you have flakey skin like mine. I LOVE THEM! Of course I wait for my skin to dry after application and put on moisturizer!

I've been using these pads for about a month, and I use them every other day. The feel of the pad on my face feels GOOD...sort of oily, but it's not....I then use the pad on the back of my hands and it is NOT oily. I have good skin, and these pads seem to have made my skin a little more translucent and clearer, even though I rarely get blemishes. It's as if my complexion was "muddy" before, but I didn't realize that until I had used these pads for a couple of weeks. I know these are expensive, but I'm 44 now, and more than willing to not get Starbucks in return for having the money to buy good skincare!

I love these pads. I have used them before, and they really are the only fail-safe for getting rid of the peely-scaly skin that I get at my hairline in the winter. I have very dry skin on the best day, but it just gets crazy in winter.
I use these every other day or a few times a week, less in summer, but I am addicted to them. They are expensive, yes, but I feel like the results justify the price. As per the salesperson's instructions, I use one pad every other morning (or so) after cleansing in the shower and before my moisturizer (which tends to be a thick one with high spf).
From reading other reviews, I guess these aren't for everybody, but I plan on using them forever; I think they're wonderful.

Overall rating: I got this as an RAOK from a very generous MUAer. Regarding it's proposed use, i.e., on the face, it didn't do anything for my slightly dry, ruddy, fairly well-behaved skin. However, it seems to work very well to exfoliate this odd dry patch I've had on the right thumb for years: The skin gets hard and dry, then it splits and bleeds. Applying this product two times a day seems to slow down this process (doesn't actually cure it though), so I gave it 4 lippies for this feat alone..However, this product is way too expensive to purchase for this particular use only. I'll check with the Skin Care Board for a reasonable replacement.
Price: Around $55/jar (the tub does not specify how many pads it contains, but I'd guess around 60 of them?
Packaging: Given that this item must be applied with a pad, I suppose the heavy glass tub makes sense, but it *is* awkward to use.
Would I buy again: Nope.

I starting using these after my last pregnancy left me freckly and blotchy. I really didn't think they would work, but they absolutely did! The blotchy area I had has completely disappeared and freckles faded. It did not irritate my skin at all, and I have very sensitive skin. I would definitely buy these again. They are overly expensive, but if they work, then I think they're worth it.

This is way to expensive for how many uses you get. It was a little irritating and I prefer something I can use every day.

These are amazing! My chin always breaks out from stress, and these are seriously working to clear it up. I've tried everything else, and nothing works as well as these beta hydroxy pads. They make my skin more even, get rid of dead skin, and my face feels so clean and soft after I use them.

I found this too harsh and I don't even use them daily! I exfoliate regularly and was hoping I wouldn't need to after this but this doesn't have the same effect as scrubbing and made my face red and blotchy.
It's way too expensive for what it does, I'm going to give philosophy a go next.

A lovely Saks associate recommended these to me after we shared similar tales of woe. We both use Differin (a retinoid), a prescription strength benzoyl peroxide cream and oral antibiotics to control acne. That regimen wreaks havoc on my skin in the winter, leaving it dry and incredibly scaly. The Even Skin Beta Hydroxy Pads were the only thing that would make it look like skin again- no scrubs were doing the trick. That being said, the price is absurd and means that I will only buy them if my skin is in dire condition.

These pads are in a buffered solution and recommended for all skin types. I have combination skin that tends to get oilier in the warmer months. These pads left a weird film on my face. I ended up washing my face after several hours because I could not stand the feel of this product. I guess I am accustomed to other pads and toners leaving a fresh, clean feeling. Trish's pads left me feeling greasy. If you have normal to dry skin, you might like this product. Oily or combo gals will probably not like the residue this product leaves on the skin.

I've been using some Trish McEvoy skincare products (incl. the beta hydroxy pads and Vitamin C cream) for the last few months, and my skin looks better than ever---wonderful. The beta hydroxy pads really do exfoliate well, and my skin is noticeably improved with my current regimen. I'm now firmly convinced that beta hydroxy acid and vitamin C are definitely ingredients I should look for in subsequent skincare purchases. What I'm not convinced of is the price of the Trish products. I've tried a couple of other beta hydroxy products before, and the only major advantage I see with the Trish version is the pad format---it works better for me than the fingertips or cotton I'm used to using. I cut them in half like a previous reviewer, and that's usually more than enough, but when I run out this time, I hope to explore some other BHA options---maybe someone else makes a similar, simple BHA solution on a pad, or I could create my own pads using someone else's (cheaper) BHA solution? If I try a few options and I'm dissatisfied, I'll gladly return to these Trish pads, but I plan to investigate my options first.

These are wonderful, but for the price Trish should give double the quantity. They are wonderful for problem skin. The texture of the pads is fabulous.

I love these. I hadn't been using them for very long and could tell my blackheads that had suddenly developed months ago were going away. For those more stubborn ones were easier to extract. Problem with this is the price...almost 60.00. I cut each pad in half since I only treat problem areas, and the pads make it convenient and easy to use. The texture is a bit rough but helps to exfoliate any flakes. I tried PC, which is cheaper and very popular, but for some reason it didn't do the job TM's do. I'll keep looking for cheaper alternatives, but when it comes to my skin I'll spend the extra $$ if I have to.
