Sustainability score: the brand claims they are “clean” (for me so unnecessary when you have this product). There is not a lot information about the efforts of the company about it, so I can’t score. In terms of packaging it comes in a box and every treatment is individually packed, which is very practical, especially if you travel. My only cons are that you generate waste with the pads will investigate if there are biodegradable. as for now I don’t have information.
My opinion: : I really like this product. It’s a perfect blend of acids. that will your skin to glow and promote cell turnover. They are strong enough to do the job by gentle enough to not harm your skin.
Even if the products say you can use daily, I tend to use acid toners (like this one) 2-3 times per week. For my skin is enough to give the boost that needs. But if you are comfortable to use daily, go ahead. This product is safe for that.
The pad presentation is extremely practical for travelling or if you go to the gym, they just not add a lot of space and you can continue with your routine anywhere you go.
My only warning or advice is don’t use it if you are using retinol/Vitamin A. This will be to much. alternate if needed and let only one strong product or ingredient do the job and have the rest of your routine to soothe the skin.
How I use it: During my PM routine, after cleansing. I follow up with a facial mist and the rest of my routine. I used it 1-2 times per week.
How long did it last: 2 months (I had 2 box of 5 pads/box).
What I like the most: How soft and glowing my skin was after using it.
Score: 4/5. Excellent
Will I repurchase it: Yes
