Spring cleaning isn't just for the clutter in your closet, kitchen or attic.
It's also for you! Winter brings dry, chapped skin and spring is all about the new. I myself am very sensitive to scrubs with beads or crystals and will break out at the mere sight of them. I use a face loofah in the shower, but I still feel like I'm shedding skin throughout the day.
I caught myself wandering around Ulta around this time last year, about 2 months before my wedding, and ran across these pads. I normally wouldn't spend the moolah on something like a face peel, but my mom had been getting lactic acid peels and loved them (was that supposed to be secret?) and I saw that these used lactic acid as well. I figured they were less expensive than going to a dermatologist, I was a bride possessed, and was sucking up any product that could possibly make me a more radiant, sane bride.
These puppies didn't make me any more sane, but good grief did I glow! I would rub one of these on my face fresh out of the shower, as well as my neck, chest, shoulders and tops of hands. After about 3 or 4 uses, I started noticing a subtle glow and an evenness to my skin that I hadn't noticed before. I only used them twice a week or so, because any more and they would just straight peel my face off.
I would advise applying these at night to give them time to soak in, as they can leave the face slightly sticky for a few minutes after application. Because of the season, make sure to apply a face lotion with SPF to protect that new baby skin!
After seeing the improvements, I told my mom, and not only did she start using it, her boyfriend did as well. My husband even uses them from time to time! I have even converted a couple of friends to start using them as well!
They may run a little pricey (ok, a lot) but I just now finished the jar a year after buying them, as they need to be used less often once you bring out that glowing new skin!
