I’ve read a lot about the Bliss That’s Incredi-‘Peel’ Glycolic Pads.
Basically, they’re described as single-step, no-rinse peeling pads that are meant to renew your skin without irritation. They’re also packed with soothing witch hazel and licorice extract and hydrating glycerin. They’re coming in a box of 30 individually wrapped pads that you have to use every night after cleansing your skin.
It’s working against fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and other imperfections to make your skin look and feel healthier and radiant.
You cleanse your face like you normally do, tone, then use the pads and at the end apply your moisturiser. It’s important to know that after using it your skin may get more sensitive, so you should use SPF on the next day. It’s suitable for all skin types.
Now to the reviews that I read. People were so happy after using this product, they were saying that it’s great even for sensitive skin, that it’s such an ‘awesome’ and ‘magical’ product which makes their skin smooth and even that ‘everybody must use these pads’. My surprise was the biggest when I saw comments from people that tend to get breakouts when they include a new product to their skincare routine which happens to me too. So, they were saying that they didn’t get any breakouts and the product worked fantastic.
As you may guess, I decided to try it out.
The first thing that I noticed when I opened the sachet was that the pad was extremely wet. The smell is the usual for this type of product I think. So, I started applying the ‘magical’ thing on my face and my skin felt burning. It wasn’t stinging, it was burning, my face got red and it hurt a lot. I stopped and after a few minutes everything was back to normal. On the next day I woke up with breakouts, they were not so many, so I thought it was normal knowing how my skin reacts to new products. And I continued applying the burning product on my face every evening because I don’t give up so easily. The breakouts were getting more and more and at some point I realised that I have never had so many spots at the same time on my face…in my entire life. I had to stop using the pads.
I don’t know why it’s happening to me, considering how positive everybody was. I think there were not even 10 negative comments that I read.
I needed about a week to fully get back to my normal skin condition.
I’m quite stubborn though so the other day I started using them again. But I changed a couple of things. First, I don’t use them every evening, I do it every other evening. And second, I cut the pads in 4 smaller parts each so that there isn’t so much product on my skin. So far, I don’t have the previous problems, it doesn’t burn and I have just a couple of tiny, almost non-visible spots. Will keep you updated!
