Beef up your anti-blemish routine by combining these pads with PETER THOMAS ROTH Beta Hydroxy Acid 2% Acne Wash.

PETER THOMAS ROTH

Birchbox Breakdown

Given how far a stiff, well-mixed cocktail goes to relieve our stress, we often wish we could lend our skin a sip when stress leads to breakouts. Enter PETER THOMAS ROTH Gentle Complexion Correction Pads. These cleansing and exfoliating swabs are the perfect treatment for skin under duress. Using one isn’t exactly like giving your face an Old Fashioned, but it’s pretty close to a healthy swig of peach schnapps.

How it Works

Each single-use wonder-circle has two sides: one cleans, the other exfoliates. This tag team of Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids clears up existing blemishes, while shrinking down pores and guarding against future breakouts.

How to Use

Lightly pass the pad over troublesome areas after you’ve washed your face. The smoother, cleansing side comes first. Then comes the textured, exfoliating side. Though it’s tempting to take out your anger on those blemishes and attack with a scrubbing motion: don’t. Use restraint and let the product do the work.

Delicious

Such a yummy smell that makes me so happy that spring is coming! I could tell that my face was clearing up after just one use! I did not purchase this item through birchbox but I will be buying through them soon because I'm running out!

Excellent Product

Gorgeous fragrance and double-sided pad is well-designed to collect dry skin and bacteria. Leaves the surface soft and supple, helps minimize breakouts.

fantastic for the stress-acne before my wedding!

I used these every night for the weeks leading up to my wedding and they were fantastic. The scent is definitely a STRONG peach bellini, but you can tell its working on your face almost immediately. I definitely owe it to these pads for keeping my face acne free.

Be careful if you have dry skin though. I would moisturize almost immediately when I got up, but was warned not to touch my face or put any other products on after using this product at night.

Great Pads!

I use these post makeup removal/face cleansing. They seem to work great - though I still have a few blackheads, I think with a little extra work, they would go away. It leaves a sticky residue, but it smells great and I recommend this product!

Clear Skin

I have used these correction pads in the past and was happy to find them on birchbox. These pads really help even out your skin complexion without drying out your skin. They state they smell like peach bellini-- I don't know if I would go that far but they are certainly the best smelling acne pads I have used. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is their price.

great for my sensitive skin!

I stopped using acne products because my skin was flaring up, but I was still breaking out so when I read about this product I kinda took a leap of faith. But wow! It really was gentle and it smells nice too. Best of all, it has down an amazing job clearing up my skin! I only use one pad every evening as not to overdue it, and it last a good two months that way.

So far so good

I have been using these for a few weeks now and haven't seen any problems with my skin. I wouldn't say this is a solve all for oily skin, but it seems to help and that is all i need sometimes. My skin likes to hate me and this has kept it in check so far. I would get again.

Makes me break out!

I'm 33 with oily, acne prone skin and I really thought these might be the answer. I used these pads religiously for 3-4 weeks and my skin broke out very badly. It also left a sticky or filmy feeling on my face that felt gross.

easy to use

After I was the makeup off my face and before I head off to bed, I use these pads to prep my face for moisturizer. Since my face is already clean, I cut the pads in half to extent the uses per bottle. This product is decent and has worked well to gently exfoliate and cleanse my skin, though I will would like to try other products and will not be repurchasing

Perfection!

This is hands-down the best cleansing pad of its kind. It's effective, gentle, and smells like a million bucks! I have combination skin verging on oily and even at 40 I dread my acne and this has helped not only treat the zits I have, but also helps prevent future ones. I like it so much I'm going to buy my daughter one!
