I’m starting to feel like all the skincare I’m loving comes in pad form, such as the Starskin Overnight Pads I recently introduced you to or some of my trusty favourites like the Nip & Fab Glycolic Pads. Whilst I’m on the latter, I recently tried out the new glycolic peel pads from L’Oreal Paris which have a 9.6% glycolic complex and so when compared with the Nip & Fab pads which have only 2.8% glycolic acid, it is a real significant difference and not one you get available at your drugstore. This sort of percentage is usually found in salon products. So I was really excited to try these out.
The peel pads are designed to essentially exfoliate your skin at night, which is the perfect time for cell renewal, by removing dead skin cells and resurfacing the skin as well as helping to reduce wrinkles and even out skin tone. This ultimately results in a smoother and brighter skin in morning and as each day goes on. L’Oreal suggest using these daily, something I was a bit apprehensive about as I would normally use a product like this about 2-3 times a week rather than everyday. But they do say they are gentle enough to do this and the pads have allantoin and panthenol listed as ingredients which helps to soothe and moisturise skin, which would help keep any sensitivity to a minimum.
