With the recent changes to my skincare routine, I was on the lookout for a new toner. I wanted something very similar to the Proactiv+ Re-Texturizing Toner, which has 2% salicylic acid. This always seemed to help clear any leftover traces of makeup on my skin and prevent any new breakouts! The Peter Thomas Roth Complexion Correction Pads are very similar to the Proactiv+ Toner, as they ALSO have 2% salicylic acid, so I was very intrigued to give these a go!
Along with the 2% salicylic acid, these toner pads have 10% glycolic acid! With both of these ingredients, these can be used to clear breakouts and reduce the appearance of fine lines! Since they pads are already coated, they are extremely easy to use – not to mention you can buy these in a travel pack, so they are individually wrapped. I find that these pads are extremely saturated and I only have to use a half of a pad for my entire face!
In the first couple of days of use, my skin was pretty sensitive to these! They definitely burned on first use and made my skin a little red (which went away after about 10 minutes). It took about a week for my skin to become accustomed to this formula, but it has been fine ever since! When I started using these, I had just started using the Kate Somerville Anti Bac Clearing Lotion. My skin was feeling a little on the drier side and I had a few flakey areas! After a few days of use, these pads helped to soften my skin and exfoliate off this flakey skin! After about two months of use, I’ve noticed my skin seems clearer and feels more balanced!
With the combination of sayclic and glycolic acid, these Complexion Correction Pads are one of my favorite products to keep my skin smooth and acne-free! They are so convenient to use and have made a huge difference in the texture of my skin!
