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.

My FAV...Love it...Idk how because nothing has helped with my acne but this is keeping the acne under control, making my face feel and look extremely smooth & radiant & idk if it's this or the Argan oil that I've been using after I use this but one of them is also slowly making my acne scars look lighter and lighter so this is definitely going to be a staple in my skin scare regimen now!...I put this on my face and within seconds my face felt like it was on fire I knew this product was working instantly and you only need to leave it on for a little while (10-30 seconds for sensitive skin and up to 3 minutes for everyone else) I have never had to use a sensitive skin peel or exfoliant but I couldn't handle much more than a minute of this.
