only thing to clear up my acne and scarring
Purchased

I've been looking for years and years for a product that clears up my acne and fades acne scars and on a whim I purchased this without any real expectations. To my delight, after using these pads for about 2 weeks, one of which I was traveling - a time I usually get large breakouts, they have completely cleared up my skin. My complexion hasn't looked this good for so long and I am so happy I found a product that actually works. I highly recommend this product if you have acne-prone sensitive skin. It hasn't dried my skin and they smell really nice.

Love this stuff

This is a great cleansing pad that gets really deep down pore clean. I am a bit older so it's great for my skin as it isn't too harsh but still gets the job done without drying out my skin. It has a great Peach Belini scent. I haven't had an adult skin breakout since I started using this product.

so I have complex skin on my face. sometimes dry sometimes oily, but large pores so more than likely I get acne. these pads helps clean my pores so well while also not over dryer like most correction pads.

Fantastic for gentle skin, great scent
Purchased

I don't have sensitive skin, so could likely use a non-gentle version of this and be a little happier, but as they are, they're amazing and fantastic for gentle skin types. They definitely give you the feel and tingle that they're working and the rough side isn't too rough - and the soft side is a dream. I've seen a slight change and improvement in my skin as I've used them and am happy with the purchase. The amazing scent makes you smile - not too heavy and super-vacation-in-your-mind kind of smile.

AMAZING!
Purchased

I have been searching for years for a product that would help my adult acne-prone skin. I've only been using the product for 5 days (it recommends 2x a day, but so far I've just been doing once as my skin tends to be sensitive -- I haven't experienced any drying side effects or irritation from the pads) and I can already SEE a difference.

I not only have acne, but some scarring from it and large pores, and after using this product for 5 days while not everything has cleared up completely, there is a VERY noticeable improvement in the scarred areas as well as the small breakout out that I had when I started using them.

I've been using another multi-step system for about a year, and in 5 days I got better results with these pads and a mild facewash than I ever did with the system. I should have known, as I've had good luck with other Peter Thomas Roth products in the past.

I highly reccommend this product if you've tried everything else and nothing has seemed to work and if you want to see quick results.

Made my skin feel oilier!

I really wanted to like these, but now that I'm down to the last pad, I can safely say that they did not help my acne at all. I try to give products a fair shake because I think most people don't give things enough of a chance to work, but these have done nothing for me. If you have oily, acne-prone skin, these just aren't the best choice.

Worth every penny.
Purchased

I'm a fan of this brand through & through. I treated myself to this product because I've hit those late 20's years & my pores have turned on me. Viciously. I use these pads nightly & after a couple weeks I've noticed a difference in my skins tone & texture. Those little white heads that hang out on the sides of my nose have all but disappeared also. No complaints here. Will definitely repurchase.

Actually Works
Purchased

This is one of the few products that I have seen a significant difference in my skin after use. My boyfriend even bought his own after trying them. I find that half of a pad delivers plenty of product to my face and neck so I usually cut them in half.

Not the best for Oily skin
Purchased

I've been using this product for several weeks now and I have noticed that it leaves my skin feeling very oily afterwards. I have naturally oily skin. I haven't seen a huge difference in my pores or any difference in my acne. Love this brand but will be trying a different product.
