"This peel is amazing. I have used countless products over the years and this is one that I keep coming back to. It makes my skin tone look better, reduces acne scars and dark marks, and helps with breakouts. The only problem that I have is making sure I don't run out! This is a must have in my routine.
I am so excited to tell you about this product! I recently discovered Avon's Anew Clinical Advanced Retexturizng Peel (wow, that's a mouthful!) from my next door neighbour who is an Avon rep. I was a little scared to try this because it is a glycolic acid peel, and I've heard horror stories about people burning their faces. :| But these babies have won Allure's Best of Beauty Award for best peel, and that is for a very good reason. You get 30 pre-soaked pads in one container, and the recommended usage is once every two days. They retail for $35 CDN, but I was able to snag them for $15, as Avon had a 2 for $30 promotion last month. I use the pad right after I cleanse my face, it slightly tingles at first, and then after a few seconds it starts to sting a little. The stinging sensation is not overwhelming or painful - more uncomfortable than painful...but it only lasts for a few seconds to a couple of minutes. You can reduce the stinging by applying a moisturizer on your face. If you have extremely sensitive skin, I'm not sure I would recommend this for you, as you may not be able to withstand the stinging - it just depends on your tolerance level. With that said, however, I think the slight tingling and stinging is totally worth the results! I have been using these pads for about 3 months now, and my skin has completely transformed! It has become so much smoother (yes, it does live up to its claim to be able to "retexturize" your skin) and it has a nice glow to it now! I have been recommending these pads to all of my friends, lol.
