I recently started using this product. It has been about 2 weeks and I feel like I've noticed changes in my skin. I have had almost "perfect" skin my whole life. I've never had issues with teenage acne and no issues up until I've reached my late 20s. I guess age has hit me hard. I'm under a lot of stress with many things in life and my face has taken a toll! I've been consistently breaking out with acne on my chin and jaw line for the past year and half. I have a very good skin regimen that I've kept up with for years, so I was surprised to find myself in this predicament!

Desperate to find a quick fix, I found Peter Thomas Roth's Max complexion correction pads via beauty store and read the reviews online. I thought it was too good to be true, but I thought I'd give them a try! So far, I've noticed less acne and overall smoother skin. I cut the pads in half to extend their use. I found half the pad to be sufficient for my face. The scent is powerful at first and if you go to close to your nose, you get a huge ETOH whiff. Afterwards, it smells okay-- fresh and lightly fruity/floral in scent. I am excited to see how it will transform my face in the future. So far, I would highly recommend this product based on what it has done for me thus far!!

As someone who has always struggled with bad skin, this has been a life saver. I love that I can wash my make up off at the end of the day and swipe this all over the face and décolleté and it helps to prevent any blemishes from occurring.. and if I do have any blemishes on my face I swear they are gone by the next morning using this. I feel like it helped even out my complexion. Only down side is sometimes the pads aren’t very saturated so you feel like you aren’t getting enough product on your skin to do the job efficiently.

I love Peter Thomas Roth (PTR), like as if he was my very cool way older brother! I use his products everyday. The Un-wrinkle pads are every other day. These can be purchased at Ulta, Sephora, or online. They are used to provide a gentle chemical peel at home, sweeping away the dead, dull skin, and it works! The cost is is higher end, but you’re going to be so happy that they work the 70 plus dollars for the quality! Of which PTR, has known for.

I have been using these pads twice a day now for about 3 weeks. I have not noticed any difference in my skin, my blemishes are typically only during my period and I still get bad hormonal cysts. The only thing I notice most is I don’t have to exfoliate as often over old dried out acne spots. This also stings and dries out skin if you are sensitive stay away. Also the smell is strong, it isn’t horrible but it does sting my nose a bit.

Within a week, these complexion pads have smoothed out my complexion pretty well and have brought a lot of my whiteheads to the surface. This makes extractions really easy and on the long term, it’ll smooth out skin really well. I honestly love them! They can be a bit drying, so you need to make sure you’re moisturizing properly. I limit to once a day, and i cut my pads in half because only half of it is enough to fill your face with product. I’ll probably be buying after I run out

These are really strong so beware if you have sensitive skin. They help keep acne at bay and lighten acne scars and dark spots. I would only use them three times a week maximum. They were too strong for me to use more than that. They worked well but they weren’t magic. They are fairly expensive so that is another reason to spread out their use because they will last longer. It stings a bit when you first wipe your face but that will go away. It can also leave more sensitive skin red for a few minutes. My skin felt softer and cleaner and I only used them at night and would wake up with clearer skin. I’ve found something that I like better since I used these up so I won’t repurchase. You should try them out though if you suffer from acne scar spots or active acne. You can buy them at Sephora.

Whenever I’m breaking out really badly, this product really clears up my acne. I usually cut these pads in half since they are really large and I feel that it’s wasteful since after I tone my whole face, the pad is still really soaked with product. These pads are strong, so if you have broken acne, then it might sting. I really recommend this product if you have acne prone skin!

These pads are amazing! The peach Bellini scent is strong but wonderful. I use these in the morning and at night before moisturizing and I have noticed a significant improvement in my skin - smaller pores, less breakouts and overall evenness of skin tone and texture.

I usually use the Clinique acne line before deciding to try something new and got a sample of the correction pads. These are so good!!! I only had to use them one time to see a big difference in skin especially the texture. I had three breakouts and the next morning all three were much much smaller and redness gone! I have already ordered these for myself because they are definitely a life saver!!

So I have a confession...
I have actually been using these pads on my clients for Quite a while now and love the effects. I sell it almost every single time I use it on people. It gets off everything and it works behind the scenes so much more.
It will help with texture, dry patches, sun spots, pimples and all of the things.
I just couldn't afford to get some for my own personal use so now that I have them for myself I am behind excited!
I recommend these for anyone wanting to all around take care of their skin!

Does anyone have any tips for using these without them burning the skin? I really like how they make my skin look, but they are very intense.

I don't use a lot of moisturizer because I am oily but do most of you use a moisturizer after using these, I heard they can be drying. I have been having such trouble with my skin lately so I can't wait for these to get here!
