  • Do not leave pad on skin for an extended period of time
  • Keep away from eyes, lips and other mucous membranes

all right it's a miracle

I have a very sensitive skin and even though it was kinda worrying that these pads would make my skin burning red, it never happened. Moreover, it helps fight acne visibly and doesn't burn or make my skin dry. For me it was a huge surprise my skin wouldn't turn red after them Big advice!

I have a trouble skin on my face and shoulder and I was using this product quaite a few times a day... It didn't dry the pimples and didn't help it to desapire faster. So to me it's a kind of wet whipes , for sure not anti acne treatment

Really effective. Not too harsh

Works great for short term. Haven't been using it long enough to see any long term benefits.

Easy and quick to use, these pads help my 14-year old son fight the seemingly unavoidable pitfall of adolescence.

De acuerdo, no son la opción más natural... ¡Pero funcionan!

Esta es la versión más suave, prefiero la más fuerte (envase rojo). Si no abusas de ellos puedes mantener a raya el acné y los molestos comedones. Mantiene los granos a raya y, en mi caso, no siento que resequen, aunque he leído revisiones de chicas que se quejan de sequedad. Si noto sequedad algún día aplico después una hidratante específica. Para mi todo un descubrimiento, tanto en resultado como en ahorro, porque éstos sustituyen el tónico de Clinique (alcohol puro), ¡y eso que te ahorras! No son para abusar, puesto que sus ingredientes son algo agresivos. De cara al buen tiempo, sólo los uso por la noche y por la mañana un buen protector solar para evitar manchas.
