Melasma and sun damage drew me to this product and I have to say: LOVE IT. I've had medical peels from my dermatologist friends and these are better, more convenient, and the improvements I was looking for. Buying my second round!

Best acne product I've ever used
Purchased

The Dr. Gross peel pack is the first product in YEARS that has made a significant improvement on my chin acne - even visits to the dermatologist and facialist didn't work. In 30 days, my chin went from bumpy, red and swollen (and hideous) to smooth and tight. I even started going out without make-up. Love it!

Better than my glycolic peels
Purchased

I have oily skin and because I'm half white and black I get dark brown scars that take forever to go away. This product is great because I can use it every day and get immediate effects. My skin is way smoother and after I moisturize and prime my pores look noticeably smaller, even with foundation. I haven't broken out once since using these and they only tingle on my skin (no burning). I have not noticed a lot of fading on the spots but I have a raised scar that seems to be getting flatter. I bet after a couple more weeks the scars will have faded too. I LOVE THIS BEST of all my skincare products.

Must Have
Purchased

Since I started reading Caroline Hirons blog religiously, I took her advice and added an acid toner to my routine. Albeit, this is the first acid I've used on a regular basis, I absolutely love it and can tell a HUGE difference in my skin. It has completely turned my skin over making it smoother, evening out my skin tone, as well as, decreasing my breakouts (or healing them asap when they do pop up) within the first two weeks of using it. I use it nightly, both pads. It stings just a hair, especially if I've used my Clarisonic or Suki sugar scrub as part of my cleansing routine first, but it's nothing terrible. I hold it over any "bleeding" zits that I've popped (correctly, of course) and it stops it pretty quickly and the spot heals within 24-48 hours.

I highly recommend these, especially for 40 and over skin. I'm 43, and I will continue to use these pads. They are pricey, but they are totally worth it if you're looking to add an acid into your routine. Finally, these are so convenient! It's so much easier to have a pre-soaked pad you just pull out to use vs having to add a liquid yourself to a cotton pad. A must have for those looking to revamp their skin!

Awesome!

I am a huge, huge fan of these pads. They are simple to use and the results are terrific - they even my skin tone and and reduce my pores. I have dry sensitive skin and have not had any negative skin reactions in the 4 months I have been using. I use 2 to 3 times a week before going to bed and follow up with a simple moisturizing cream. The Alpha Beta pads are a great addition to any skincare regime.

Visible results-worth the price

If the word peel scares you, don’t worry: I consider myself to have sensitive skin and I actually purchased the extra-strength by accident. It has never irritated and feels very refreshing. It is not the old-fashioned mask that you spread on and peel off...there is no real peeling involved. No red skin or flaking. I'm not sure others notice a difference, but I notice a reduction in fine lines and just a general improvement in skin tone. Then again, I have had a few compliments lately on my "general" appearance...maybe these peel treatments are why?

DO NOT RECOMMEND

got this as a sample and used it one night. THREE DAYS LATER my face is still terribly dry and looks flakey. It was almost painful after the first night.

Game Changer
Purchased

This product has changed things for me. My skin is super sensitive and combination. I've had a hard time finding something that works for minimizing the appearance of pores around my cheeks/nose while not drying out the rest of my face. This is it!! Since I have super sensitive skin I can only use these a few times a week but it works for me (also helps with the $$$). It does tingle when applied but once I use the second step neutralizer pad that is over. I can't say I've noticed a reduction in dark spots however the overall texture and clarity of my skin is so nice now, I feel good going out with no makeup. I've also noticed that my skin looks more hydrated and full. I was hesitant to purchase this product because of the price tag but for me the actual results are so worth it.

Amazing
Purchased

Significantly decreased blackheads and the size of my pores after about a week. I use every other day and this seems to be adequate for results without making my face too dry.
