Worth it...The best...These acne pads are amazing!...Half a pad still did wonders on conjuction with my acne cream because when I woke up - after a good nights rest as sleep is really important for acne - the acne scars on my forehead were noticeably lighter AND a couple breakouts bumps I had were much, much, MUCH flatter.
