Won't use anything else
Posted 1/23/2015 by Emily
I love these pads. They keep my skin glowing and clear. They've helped lighten some slight hyperpigmentation over time. I can't use them everyday because they are 20 % and my skin tends to get a little irritated if I use them too much.

Absolutely love this product, and I've tried many. I'm 43 and get compliments on my skin all the time. Keeps my face clear and healthy.

Face broke out

This product made my whole face breakout with acne.
Posted 12/17/2014 by Melissa
This product is excellent!!! I use the pads every night all over my body. Its helps with the sun damage and fine lines and wrinkles. My acne on my face is no longer there. Have been using these pads for over a year and will continued to buy.

I tend to separate the pads in half to last longer and it's also a perfect amount of product for sensitive skin. It can be drying when you first start using the product. Once a day is great. It will fade some spots and help with acne. You may want to use a light moisturizer on top as well. I just ordered more. I love it.
Love this as a FaceWash

I use the Glycolix treatment pads every morning as my face wash. It cleans and exfoliates my skin beautifully without drying it out. And, it keeps my skin free from breakouts. And, the pads are great for travel!
Great for acne!

I have used Benzoyl Peroxide on my skin for years to help control my acne on my face, chest and back. I was tired of the long process of putting it on, waiting for it to dry and only wearing white cloths in fear that it will ruin the rest of my wardrobe only to get semi-effective results. So, I read many reviews on this product and decided to try it out. My skin has not broken out since. I use the pads all over my face, back and chest and it has given me similar, if not better, than benzoyl peroxide without all the negative side effects. Only down side is they are expensive and don't smell the greatest, but I will take that any day over the alternative. I also used this daily for a while and noticed my skin got irritated, red and sort of broke out. So I switched to every other day and making sure I apply a moisturizer after. I recommend this product to those with facial and body acne.

Outstanding product! At age 66, getting positive compliments on the condition of your skin is a surprising joy! Many comment, and that's due, in part, to these little pads! Great for exfoliation and occasional outbreaks. I use them 2 days a week, leaving the acid on overnight. These help with my Retin-A routine, and the cultivate thegeneral liveliness of the appearance of my skin. Delighted to re-order these gems!

hands down best thing i have ever used. i am on my 6th jar of this and don't intend to stop, ever. i have used accutane, retin-A, topical and oral acne antibiotics and not even that was able to control my acne as well as the glycolic acid 20%. not to mention how nicely it refines my fine lines and brightens my complexion. my make-up has never looked better with how smooth it goes on. for those of you who didn't like this, i would suggest self educating about how to use & exactly how it works by bringing all the dead skin grime stuff out from deep within the pores. you must start out at lower strength and graduate up as you acclimate to it. any side effects i experienced were minor & temporary compared to other products. you may experience flaking when you first start, but it will quickly exfoliate off with a facial scrub pad. only a few times in the beginning did my skin become pink and sensitive, but a little bit of otc 1% hyodrocortisone cream applied turned that right around within an hour. sunscreen is a must have and use of other products like 20% vitamin c serum really boosts the benefits. Don't waste your money/time on other expensive products like proactive or expensive procedures. another thing i noticed about this is how my missing eyebrows are almost all grown back with each use. i'm guessing it must be opening up hair follicles that have been clogged? i will never stop using this product. as you can see i'm crazy about it, and no, i'm not being paid to say this. however, i would gladly accept if glycolix offered, LOL!

I have been using glycolic acid pads for about 18 years, getting them from a plastic surgeon for the first 11 years. I have been purchasing Glycolix for past past 7 years. They are wonderful. Keeps my face healthy looking.

I am a 71 year old woman and I get compliments all the time on my skin. Most people think I am at least 10 years younger then I am. I have been using your product every night for three years without any other product following it. I knew it was working because I had two moles that are nearly gone since using it. This was the only difference in my routine so I knew it was this product. I highly recommend this to anyone trying to maintain a smoother, more youthful appearance.
The only thing that works for my acne
Posted 6/29/2011 by Lily
I have had oily, acne-prone since I was a teenager (I'm in my early 30s now) and this is the only product that has helped me, apart from Accutane, which is just too toxic to take for extended periods of time. After only a week of usage, my skin started clearing up. It not only prevented breakouts, but it also helped to lighten dark acne spots and tighten my pores. My face looks clearer, smoother and brighter than I remember it has been for a long time. I've only been using it for a few weeks now, but I love the difference. I use it once a day, at night, since using it twice a day dried out my skin too much. My old dermo once told me to wait at least 30 minutes after washing my face to apply any alphahydroxy or retinoid products, so that your skin is dry and less likely to have that burning sensation (which can be pretty strong at 20% strength). I really hope that the product continues to help me for a long time. Thanks to all the reviewers for your input and recommendations.

I have oily skin and still in my mid forties have some breakouts! These pads keep my skin glowing and fresh! I use them every single morning on my face, decollete and top of hands. I will never be without these! I am going to start my daughter on them as she has acne prone clogged skin. They do sting a little until you get used to them. No more expensive peels at the spa for me now!

I used this product in the past and for some reason stopped, can't remember why. But I've been having breakouts for about 6 months now and my oily skin was out of control. I got back on using these every night, yes every night, I can tell if I miss a night. After two weeks my breakouts have stopped, my super oily skin is just radiant again, no messy oily issues throughout the day. This is the best product ever! I now remember how great my skin looked using this product, I'll never stop again.
Works great for body acne!

I bought these pads for extremely stubborn acne and acne scarring on my upper arms and back. I could see a difference within 2 days. The acne (that has resisted many other levels of Glycolic acid) is disappearing and the scars I have are fading. Big thumbs up!
Good, But Not Great

My husband who is older and has normal to slightly oily skin has been using this product with pretty good results so far and intends to purchase more. As for the 'A Little Nervous' comment posted by 'L' yesterday, I think you may be on to something. I have oily and acne prone skin and would not use this product on my face because it is moisturizing and meant to be left on overnight. That would be enough to break me out. Someone with dryer or older skin would probably fare better.
A Little Nervous
Posted 4/27/2009 by L
I purchased this product after reading all the great reviews, having been a glycolic user of MD Forte for many years, I was looking to simplify things by using a pad. My skin is oily but I rarely suffer from breakouts, I have been using this product for 5 days once a day and have been breaking out alot, I am a little nervous, is that normal in the beginning??? I do know with some of the stronger products the quick exfoliation can sometimes cuase anything that has been underneath the skin to come to the surface in the beginning of treatment. I have not had breakouts like this in a very long time and I just wanted to know if anyone else experienced anything like this in the beginning?

This is the best over the counter skin care product I've ever used. It really works! For years, I went to dermatologists to get glycolic peels, now you can get the same effect by using this product. Not only does it exfoliate your skin so that your retin-A can work even better, it also reduces breakouts and makes your skin look very fresh, very quickly. The best money you could ever spend on your skin.

I am in my mid 20's and have struggled with adult acne for about 5 years. Nothing has worked like glycolic acid. I have spent THOUSANDS on creams and facials and meds so, being a student, I was very excited to discover a product that works and is affordable. I wish they made I higher concentration,as well.
money well spent

i bought this base on the reviews and for the first time this one works. i ha used glycolix 10% cream for few weeks but i did not see improvements so was about to give up on this line but bought the pads and now used for about a week and i like what i'm seeing. it does tingle little bit but goes away in few minutes. my skin looks smoother, more even toned and has a bit of glow that i never had. i love the fact this has 60 pads for only about 20 bucks. very affordable. great for keeping breakouts to minimal.
Love this product!

I've had almost no breakouts, my rosacea is minimal and my skin is clearer and brighter. I love this product!
Amazing stuff for cystic acne sufferers!!!
Posted 3/11/2008 by jill
I have suffered through many years dealing with cystic acne. Painful acne that would last weeks. After many costly dermatoligist visits, prescriptions, and creams, I still had to deal with constant breakouts. A year ago, I tried the entire line of Glycolix Elite and I'm hooked. I use the Glycolix Moisturizing 10% cleanser, the 20% Glycolix pads (I also do not rinse after using) and finish with Glycolix Elite 15% lotion. For occasional flareups, I dab a little MaMa's lotion (another Sincarerx product) on the pimple at night until it goes away. This item is pricey but it also works great.....and a little goes a long way(one bottle has lasted 6+ months). So if you suffer from cystic acne, Glycolix Elite is definitely worth your time and money! Now instead of trying to hide my face,I actually get compliments on my skin and the painful cystic acne is a thing of the past. For the price this line is priceless to me.

I bought 20%, because my skind got used to glycolic acid. I don`t rinse after and my skin is great.I like when it sting, so I know it is working:) My skin is rejuvenate, smooth, pores are small. Now, after 2 months of using pads regularly,my skin has less spots and it`s more even. I absolutely love it, and never stop use it.
