I was initially a little reticent to give pre-prepared peel pads ago when they first came on the market many a year ago, but today, peel pads are better than ever. Now, instead of simply stripping your skin of all of its goodness with the likes of alcohol and BHAs, you get variety of ingredients that do everything from moisturise to add an artificial tan. The world of the pre-packaged peel pad is ever growing and expanding, and even my slightly sensitive, on the side of dry skin is up for exploring what’s on offer.
Which brings me to Elizabeth Arden Skin Illuminating Retexturizing Pads, which have become a regular in my routine since they hit the counters. With active ingredients like glycolic acid, niacinamide and vitamin C, they are designed to the results of a professional spa treatment at home in a single step. And do they? You bet they do – and quite remarkably.
These exfoliating facial pads effectively retexturise and cleanse the skin as well as promote skin renewal. They were developed from the top selling product at Elizabeth Arden's Red Door Spa, and are intended to safely exfoliate the top layers of skin for a clearer, more radiant and even-toned appearance. Infused with a blend of Essential Oil, Amino Acids and 5 per cent Glycolic Acid, these cleansing treatment pads are the perfect pick for a more radiant complexion over time.
For surface exfoliation that targets more than just acne, Elizabeth Arden has kindly given us a luxurious and brightening jar of pads that are safe for periodic use. Scrubbing away (metaphorically—we’re talking chemical exfoliants here) the surface of dead and discoloured cells, as well as helping to minimise fine lines wrinkles over time, these babies are also insanely easy to use. After cleansing, gently wipe a single pad across yoir face and neck in an upward and outward motion. As the pad wipes the skin, a tingling, warming sensation is likely to occur but don’t be alarmed – used correctly these work a charm. Do not leave the pad on skin for a prolonged period of time, and dispose of each after a single use before following with your moisturiser of choice. Too easy! They are designed to use 2-3 times per week or as needed, and thus far I am utterly obsessed.
These wee gems are on counter now and come highly recommended.Tweet
