5 out of 5I am a big fan of this formulation by Dr. Ashley Magovern Verified Purchaser
Like the cleanser, I am a big fan of this formulation. I am a big proponent of using alpha and beta hydroxy acids, particularly if you have acne prone skin. And this product has both. This product contains 2% salicylic acid, the maximum concentration in over the counter products. Salicylic acid is particularly important in acne because it has lipophilic properties, allowing it to better penetrate the oil glands and hair follicles. It also has anti-inflammatory properties, further enhancing its affect on acne. Both salicylic acid and glycolic acid are keratolytic agents –they help dissolve the dead skin cells that are clogging the hair follicle. And, by encouraging sloughing of the skin cells, they also leave the skin bright and smooth. I find that people love using pads, perhaps because they are easy to use and leave the skin feeling clean and fresh. They are perfect for teenagers, and really for anyone looking for an easy addition to their regimen. I know you will notice a different with your skin. Just take care to wear sunscreen and keep the skin moisturized to help prevent irritation. Glycolix has many wonderfully formulated products at a great price point. This is just one of them.
