Glycolix Elite Treatment Pads are convenient and easy-to-use as they gently exfoliate, moisturize and assist in the removal of oil and residue on the skin.
Contains 20% Glycolic Acid. Glycolic Acid helps to gently slough, or exfoliate, the dead cell layer which manifests fine lines and uneven skin tones. When the dead cells of the skin's most outer layer are removed, newer, fresher skin is revealed. With continued use, the appearance of fine lines seems to fade and clearer, more supple skin is achieved.
Remove a saturated pad from the jar and wipe the textured pad over the desired area to be cleansed.

In my early 30s, I started getting pimples on my chin around the time I was due to get my period. I had also noticed my skin was starting to get a little dull and I wanted to do what I could to keep that "glow."
I was also not able to tolerate any sort of prescription retinol anymore, either... it was like my previously acne prone skin had become super sensitive as I had gotten older.
I've been using these glycolic pads on and off, mostly on, for the last 10 years. I started at 5% and am currently using 20% most nights of the week. I'm now 41, don't think I look anywhere near my age, and get compliments ALL THE TIME on my skin and my "glow." I also no longer get the monthly pimple. I just can't say enough good things about this product.
My only warning would be to start with a lower concentration-- 5 or 10% and then only 2-3x per week. Move up slowly and it should be fine. Take care in the winter time with proper moisturizing, especially.

The price for what you get is a great value. It definitely gives a tingle for a few minutes after wiping your face. Which to me is expected from a glycolic product. Before the 2 week mark is when I noticed my pores to be more refined. Only negative is that the final few pads (about the final 1/4) seem to be dried out. I stored the product under the sink and quickly opened/closed the lid to try to minimize this from happening. Pads still give the tingle just not as moist as I prefer. Perhaps there is a better way to store the product. Overall, great purchase.

I probably should have started out with lower concentration glycolic acid. This product stings badly and leaves my skin irritated and red. I seem to do better with physical exfoliation scrubs.

Glycolix 20% is a must for my skin. Nothing else seems to make my skin so smooth, epecially once I became 50. I get compliments all the time on my skin's glow, softness, great evenness, etc. I can't think of enough compliments for Glycolix.

This is a great exfoliant! I have oily skin, wrinkles and clogged pores. Ugh! These pads clean my pores, decrease the oiliness and smooth my skin. Can't get much better than that!!

I have tried everything on the planet to help with the cystic acne and texture issues I've been having with my skin since I turned 40. These little pads work miracles. The acne is gone and the texture of my skin is great... and I've only used the product a couple of weeks.. I started seeing improvement within a couple of days. Excellent product - will buy again and again!

I have been using glycolic acid for the past 12 years. I never go for facials anymore. As a matter of fact, I hadn't had a facial in over 10 years and a few years ago decided I should try one. The esthetician said I really didn't need one and said "you must use glycolic acid". How great is that?These pads are the best I have found, they are like stridex pads from my youth. I use one pad daily for my face, neck and chest. I am always getting complemented on my skin! Try them

I have been going to a dermatologist for years and given oral meds and topicals that were costly and every month PMS would hit and I would get a batch a pimples and sometimes cystic ones. The topicals didn't work nor the oral meds. These pads have worked and kept my acne at bay, if a pimple pops up it is gone within a day!! Using these pads have saved me hundreds by not having to see a dermalogist anymore!!! These are a lifesaver!

I have been using this product for about 2 months, it really works awesome exfoliating the skin with no irratation or peeling! My skin is on the oily side and I live in South FL, I don't know if it is the humidity here but every time I use this I have this feeling on my face which feels gross but the product gives excellent results when it comes to clarity and treating fine lines so I continue to use it.
