One of my favorite creams! - 11/8/2014 12:09:23 AM I actually wanted to purchase the Miracle pads a year ago when I also recieved a full sized retexurizing moisture cream as a gift with purchase. By the description, I thought that the Miracle pads would be far more effective, but just after one use I discovered that this cream is worth its weight in gold! I wake up with skin like butter! So smooth, so refreshed, and so even! It takes the redness out of my skin and makes it look and feel so much healthier. It lasted me a very long time since a pea size really is all you need because it melts into the skin. I love it, but have to wait to repurchase it since it is so expensive and I'm broke. However, it is the only cream that ever worked so well for me! I have been battling acne, sun damage, and scaring for a long time, and with this cream my face feels like a baby's butt! Amazing and no pain or reactions! It's gentle and effective!

light and high protection - 10/20/2013 5:00:25 AM Like this sunscreen but it is a bit liquid-y and therefore challenging to apply. Once you figure out a technique it is great.

Awesome&unique - 4/5/2013 5:49:06 AM This is not a usual sunscreen. I have sensitive, acne-prone skin, that becomes very dry or very oily with any wrong skin care. Formula has no oils or silicones, which is something almost impossible to find in SPF products. I am pretty sure that this is the only sunscreen existing now that has higher than 30spf, no silicones, oils, and mineral filters. I dont mind mineral filters in my mineral makeup, but in creams with SPF30+ it looks awful on me because I cant apply it perfectly even and in a very thin layer like a mineral veil and usually it dries out my skin. Due to the lotion liquidity (almost a watery consistence), it requires some practice with application, can run thru your fingers if you are not quick enough. This is annoying during first applications, but then you will find your smart way of applying it. You cant have formula free of all what clog pores and still being thick. It is not a mattifying formula, provides light but sufficient moisturizing with a nice glow on a bare skin and is perfect to use under mineral powder make-up, which stays on me all days without melting. I already ordered multiple back-up and will definitely buy it again.

Best Treatment Pad I've Found!!! - 8/28/2012 11:38:46 AM This is by far the best exfoliating treatment I've used! I've tried using them twice a day, but my skin stings too much. So, for me, once a day is enough. I've been using the pads for a month and a half and my skin is much smoother and my pores are smaller. I also have less black heads around my nose. I will not be without these in my skincare regimen.

Awesome Product - 7/12/2012 6:08:52 AM I have been using this product for about a year and it has really cleared by skin. It is a very convenient, well packaged, easy to use product. I use it morning and night after washing my face. Kinda costly, but I usually find coupons online to save some money and cost is not an issue to me with such a well working product.

a great find - 12/2/2011 6:43:06 AM I don't usually write reviews, although i frequently read them. I discovered C & A retexturing pads through a daily health & beauty email. I liked what the claims said, so i gave it a try. I am 43 with normal to dry skin. I began my treatment using it only at night for the first week. Then added the morning treatment. It only slightly tingled my skin, not enough to be uncomfortable or stop using. I did notice additional drying to my skin..but when i followed with a good moisturizer, all was good. 3 weeks in to the routine, my sister asked me if i had Botox. I laughed and said NO. A friend asked me the same thing after a 30 day period of application. I am going to keep a stock of this product and can't wait to pair it with the moisturizer they just came out with.

Gentle and effective - 11/14/2011 9:59:31 PM I am finally reviewing after returning to this product and on my third bottle. I have used other glycolic products before as well as salicylic acid products for the acne on my greasy 33yr old skin and I have to admit, something about this combination of acids just works on my face and it makes putting on my make up in the mornings enjoyable. This stuff makes my skin glowy and smooth after 3 days of using (I only use it once a day at night) and it stays that way until I run out or I feel pinched by the price tag. My acne scars have faded quite a bit as well and when I combine this with my hyaluaronic acid moisturizers from my Asian beauty hauls...I get complements every time on how healthy my skin looks! I admit I have strayed from this stuff before and I cannot tell you how terrible my skin was when it returned to it's original ruddy bumpy and acne scarred texture. I wish the results were permanent but like all beauty must be maintained. I will buy this as long as I can still afford to do so.

Seems to work so far - 9/27/2011 11:29:21 AM At 62, I am having a resurgence of breakout. I have tried changing my cleanser, toner, foundation, etc. and even tried several Neutrogena acne washes and scrubs with few results. I have been using these pads for about 2 1/2 weeks and I am seeing some improvement FINALLY!!! If I do breakout, it usually goes away in a day. I was using them 2x/day but they made my face sting, so I am using once a day at night. I really haven't noticed my skin being more even-toned or less lined yet.We'll see what my skin looks like after the full month is complete. But overal, I would recommend them. The only downside is the cost.

Learn More About Cane and Austin

Cane and Austin is dedicated to delivering top quality products that can be used at home. In the past, this type of quality glycolic peel style treatment was only available through doctors. Now everyone can enjoy better looking skin without the trip to the dermatologist.

The dermatological impacts of the aging process and of acne are some of the leading skincare issues both men and women grapple with. The Cane and Austin brand takes aim at both conditions with a revolutionary glycolic-acid-based product that's easy and straightforward to use, even as it offers a comparable approach to many expensive clinical procedures.

The innovative Cane and Austin pads are stocked with pure glycolic acid obtained from sugarcane. They're designed to exfoliate the skin, shedding the layers of dead skin cells that can degrade the complexion as well as plug up pores, encouraging acne breakouts. Cane and Austin products also draw upon such natural texture-boosting ingredients as witch hazel and green tea as well as the acne-fighting properties of salicylic acid, all combined in the brand's Acne Treatment Pads to powerful effect.

In addition to exfoliation, the Cane and Austin formulations help your skin build back its collagen reserves for a revivified complexion, and are also richly hydrating.

The brand's vision stems from decades of investigation into anti-aging and acne approaches by its founder, Dr. Craig Austin. Clinical trials have shown encouraging results, with many patients reporting more luminous, even-toned and textured, and youthful-looking skin within weeks of starting their Cane and Austin applications.

Whether you're seeking some relief from the complexion-shattering effects of pimples and blemishes, or looking to counteract some of the cosmetic advertisements of the aging process, consider the varied products of the Cane and Austin line. They make for an elegantly refined approach to firmer, smoother, more lustrous skin.
