The Promise: The benefits of glycolic acid (diminished fine lines, smoother skin and a healthy glow) without the irritation.
The Ingredients: Glycolic acid, vitamin E, licorice root extract, witch hazel, calendula flower extract and glycerin.
The Process: The thing I love most about these pads is how simple they are to use. Open the packet, pull out the generously-doused pad and swipe it across your face (avoiding the delicate under eye area). I use these 3-4 times a week.
The Pros: This is a very simple and straightforward way to incorporate “peels” into your life. They are less irritating than in-office procedures and less expensive too. As they are individually wrapped, they were easy to pack and carry.
The Cons: As with anything that exfoliates, over use can cause irritation (and even acne) and using them after you have exfoliated with another product is a no-no. You also need to be very careful not to forget your sunscreen (which you shouldn’t anyway).
The Result: I tend to love Bliss products and these pads are at the top of our list. Easy to use and super-effective, I noticed finer lines and brighter skin as well as teeny-tiny pores. I not only have them in supply at all times, but I love to give them as gifts to new mom’s who always find them a great addition to their at-home facial routine.
