My Thoughts on Aprilskin's Real Calendula Peeling Pad


This is my review on Aprilskin's peeling pad:

Ingredients
Looking into the full list ingredients of Aprilskin Real Calendula Peeling Pad, it's key ingredients definately made me excited as I went through the decoded list of the peeling pads. Honestly, the ingredients are so great especially for those with acne problems, these peeling pads contains the core anti-bacterial ingredients that help fight acne. The ingredient that caught my attention the most is PHA and LHA acids and it's my first time hearing about it. Reading on more about these acids made me regret not using these peeling pads earlier. LOL...

With Calendula Flower, Hyaluronic Acid, Centella Asiatica, and various plant extracts, I'm not worrying much about dryness and acne at all. It's exfoliating agent is also said to be gentle but also works wonders.



Packaging
Love the packaging, not only does it look elegant, it seems to store the product well. This see-through plastic jar is air-tight but its a bit bulky to me. If you look inside, there's actually quite a lot of space for the pads inside the jar. However, as long as there are no spills, the packaging is good enough for me. The downside of this packaging is probably it didn't come with another lid after the main lid where mini tweezers could be stored. So to get the product out using fingers is the fastest option which of course is not hygienic.



Texture
The peeling pads have double-sided texture, one with a bumpy surface and another with a smooth surface. Both surfaces are soft and feel pleasant to use.



Scent-Wise
This product may contain artificial fragrance but trust me it smells so good. Opening the jar makes you think of fresh orange juice, well for me it did. LOL...



Experience
Honestly, I haven't used much of these peeling pads yet so I can't fully say much about it yet. However, from my experience so far, these peeling pads are very hydrating, no matter how you choose to use it, these peeling pads leave an instant feel of hydration leaving the skin feeling plump and good.



Overall Thoughts
Again, I can't say much yet. I'll update this post again after a few months try and let you all know how I feel about it then. Since I'm using retinol in my skincare routine, I don't dare to use this yet but just wait in a few months. I really can't wait to see how it truly goes with my skin.
