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.
this is by far the best and most reasonably priced exfoliating pad i have ever used. my complection improved in days- smoother - glowing- reduced pores. i am now using about three times a week. great product.
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.
