How do you use it?
The advice is to apply every other day, morning or evening after cleansing, which seems fair enough.
What’s good about it?
These are very affordable, perfectly good acid pads that work well as an alternative to some of the more expensive ones. They may contain a few more ingredients than the others, but I wouldn’t let that put you off. The glycolic content is 10% and it also contains what Avon have trademarked as their ‘Multi-Acid 5 Complex’ which I expected to be five ‘acidic’ acids, but it’s not. The Multi-Acid 5 is glycolic, hyaluronic, TPA, oxalic and salicylic. At 10%, they sit about in the middle of the acid spectrum.
What’s not so good about it?
They have a bit more bite than some pads, i.e. sting, but it’s certainly not unbearable.
Yes. I am new to the Avon website, but it is without doubt one of the worst that I have seen for lack of information. No real description, no information on ingredients, no ingredient information at all, hence my very professional (not) picture of the box. This, from one on the biggest brands in the world, is just not good enough. I don’t know why it’s so bad, if you do, please let me know in the comments.
Ignoring that, the pads are great and on offer for £10.00. So check them out.
