Cane + Austin 2%/5% Acne Retexture Pads

If we’ve learned anything from superhero movies, it’s that two heroes are better than one. These simple, one-step daily treatment pads contain 5% pharmaceutical-grade glycolic acid to fight the effects of aging, plus 2% salicylic acid to help clear acne and prevent new blemishes. While this formula works wonders for acne-prone skin, it’s great on all skin types because it reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, and restores skin tone to boost radiance. In short? These pads are serious skin rescuers.

Acetone is the first ingredient
Sampled

Seriously? I won't even try this sample. Acetone, as in the solution that takes off your nail polish and dries your nails out horribly. Nope.

harsh
Sampled

I didn't really like this product due to its harsh smell and stinging sensation I felt when using it. I also did not like that you only receive one sample of the product. Maybe it would have been more effective if I had more chance to try the product.

This product saved my skin!

I have acne-prone skin and I'm also starting to take preventative anti-aging measures. After years of random breakouts, I developed stubborn acne scars and dark spots that just wouldn't go away. Within mere days of using these pads, I stopped breaking out and my acne scars completely disappeared. They treat any existing breakouts and stop acne from coming back, all while making your skin look even better than it did before. My skin is so much brighter, clearer, more hydrated AND my pores are smaller. I also love how clean these pads make my skin feel. I'll never go a day without them!

Need more samples
Sampled

I really like the idea of this product, but it is hard to judge how well this product works because I only received one pad as a sample. It would be nice to receive more product so I can have a better understanding of how it performs.

Acetone on your face
Sampled

Ha! As most people with acne, I have sensitive skin, so read the ingredients on face products carefully. Reading "acetone" as the first ingredient was a big red flag to me, so I tested it on my arm. Within a few moments it was uncomfortable so I never tested it on my face.

Wow, too harsh!
Sampled

I'm 60 years old and haven't had a problem with breakouts in many years. The first 2 ingredients are acetone (nail polish remover) and alcohol, not good for anyone's skin. The only "active" ingredient is Salicyclic Acid 2%, good for unclogging pores but along with the inactive ingredients a bit strong.

No thanks
Sampled

I have very sensitive skin and question why I'd even receive a product that contains such hash ingredients. The first ingredient is acetone which is something I choose not to put on my face. No thanks!
