The DeVita Story...
For nearly my entire life my skin had suffered from chronic cystic acne, and then when my 40s hit, so did the ravages of the Arizona sun I had lived in all my adult life. After spending many hundreds of dollars on expensive "name brand" products, which did nothing except break down my bank account and break out my face, I decided to use my background in chemistry to "deconstruct" those well-known high priced potions. I discovered there was nothing in them that would do what they claimed, nor was there any ingredient used that should be so costly. And then, to top it all off, they were all loaded with poisons and toxic preservatives!
After that sad discovery, I knew I had to take matters into my own hands. At that time, I had a small essential oils company, and I began working with organic aloe vera as a dynamic delivery system together with cutting edge advancements in active natural ingredients to create the beginnings of an effective natural products line. I began using them and getting great results, which all my family and friends noticed. They of course demanded to be let in on my secret, so after exhaustive and extensive research and development - DeVita Natural Skin Care was born!

My skin has a tendency to become congested if I don't use a chemical exfoliant for cell renewal such as glycolic acid. My two trusty products which I alternate between are Earth Science Active Age Defence which contains both lactic and glycolic acid and the 10% Glycolic Acid Cream from Reviva Labs. However, even wih these creams I am still prone to the odd blemish and needed something specifically designed to target this issue. I have previously used and been very happy with products from Devita so had faith in the acne solution pads living up to their claims but I never imagined how effective they would be. First of all, it's nice to see such a short and simple ingredient list for an acne product as these types of products usually contain a multitude of ingredients with impossible to pronounce names . As with most acne products, the scent is strong (I attribute this to the witch hazel) but not in an offensive, can't use this product because the smell makes my stomach turn kind of way. This smell dissipates quickly once a thin layer has been applied to the skin. The jar contains 30 pads and I'm down to the last 3 and they are still moist with solution and I've found that there is enough product on each pad that I could probably get away with cutting these in half and still have enough to cover my entire face. The instructions on the back of the jar indicate that you should start with a single daily application and increase to 2 - 3 times. For myself, I never made it past using these pads once a day as I found that they are effective at ensuring existing blemishes heal quickly, reduces redness and inflammation and prevents new pimples from forming. The low amount of glycolic acid combined with the 3% salicylic also cleans out pores and gives your skin more clarity. I use these at night and find that they do not leave my skin red or irritated so I believe that they would be fine to incorporate into your morning routine. A superstar product from Devita.
I cannot believe there are no reviews for this product! This is bar none the best topical acne treatment I have ever found. I have tried so many others, such as Dermalogica's Overnight Gel, but this is definitely more efficient, and shows no mercy to pimples - not even the ones that are under the skin. I wouldn't recommend you apply this all over your face, but just where it's needed. Also works on chest and back acne. I'm tempted to also try the 5 percent version of this, but for some reason that product is really expensive at iHerb, so I'll probably have to purchase elsewhere.
I'm very unlucky!

I love iHerb product and spend $50-100/month in the past 6 years. This is the first time I received defective product. The acne pads were completely dried up. The container and lid have no plastic protective sheer in between which explains the moisture evaporation. The paper box was damp and the plastic container was oily on the surface. I had to wash my fingers with soap many times to get the chemical feeling off. They both reek of pungent petrol smell that gave my nose and throat cooling sensation (almost like heartburn) and nauseous feeling. I zipped it up in IKEA ziplock bag but the smell is so overpowering, I have to keep it outside in my balcony. I plan to send it back to iHerb even if they tell me not to. The product has obviously deteriorated to the stage that it emits toxic vapor. I'm feeling giddy as I'm typing this review. As I mentioned before I'm just unlucky to receive the bad product. I'm sure it's acne fighting property is as effective as what other reviewers claim.

The product is very drying and has an overwhelming alcohol smell. Would not repurchase :(

I use these exclusively to wash my face- no soaps. Even though they contain alcohol they don't dry out or irritate my sensitive skin. Wish they were a bit less expensive though.
Perfect natural, non-toxic exfoliant for oily, acne-prone and hyperpigmentation-prone skin!

Devita Acne Solution Pads are perfect for my oily, acne-prone, hyperpigmentation-prone skin. I use Devita Acne Solution Pads nightly. Here's my routine: remove makeup, cleanse, swipe skin with half of a Devita Natural Skin Care Acne Solution Pad, let dry for 30 minutes and moisturize. Using Devita Acne Solution Pads has decreased acne healing time, decreased the appearance of pores without irritation (just a slight, transient tingle) and faded hyperpigmentation. I never want to be without them!
