Intensive Glow Pads Brightening Treatment
Love this product!
I love the Intensive Glow Pads Brightening Treatment! I have lots of allergies and very sensitive skin and I can totally use this product! It smooths my skin, makes it look younger and helps with fine lines! I see better looking and feeling skin! Hooray! I use it every 2-3 days.
I love the BE skincare line and foundation! Overall it has reduced pore size, reduced oiliness and the foundation covers very well, but naturally (I use the Baby Buki Brush on my entire face).
squeaky clean with no redness
I am borderline in terms of having rosacea, so I'm usually hesitant to use this type of product, but no worries here! Deep clean with no irritation or extra dryness.
Dramatically Evened Out Skin Tone and Surface!
Before using this product, my face was very uneven due to pretty advanced Rosacea. The surface of my skin, right on the apples of my cheeks, was actually bumpy. After about a week of using the glow pads, my skin is completely smooth and the redness is almost gone. Amazing!
After cleansing my skin, I gently touch each part of my face with the pad. I don't scrub. I never use the rough side. I really just let my skin soak up all the ingredients. I do this twice a day. I can't remember the last time my skin was so soft and smooth. After thinking that I was just going to have to live with the very red and splotchy skin of a Rosacea sufferer (makeup always made it worse), this is truly fantastic.
If you have aging skin-- and/or rosacea--and/or clogged pores--and/or a need for exfoliation, I recommend this product. It is excellent! My skin had done a 360. Rejuvenates, unclogs pores, has not in any way aggravated my rosacea, and gently exfoliates. I'm a long-time Bare Escentuals fan, but these glow pads are perhaps the best product yet.
I tried really hard to love this
I'm about 1/2 way through my jar of glow pads, and I've tried really, really hard to love these.
Pros: It is refreshing to use in the morning and evening. The solution feels good and does brighten quite well.
Cons: The softer side is nice and doesn't bother me at all, but the rougher side of the pad really stings my face. In the moment that I am using it and for a few minutes after it kind of feels like I'm rubbing my face with a bit of insulation. It's really uncomfortable and makes me want to run and dunk my face in a vat of face cream or lotion.
My eyes are very prone to getting dried out when I put makeup or lotions on my face, and while the solution in the glow pads feels good it does make my eyes dry out quite a it.
I could have possibly overlooked all of that, but the biggest thing that I can NOT get over is the fact that, once dry, it makes my face feel sticky. This is just something I can't get past because it makes my face end up not feeling refreshed but filthy.
Sad...I tried really hard to love these.
I've tried these pads on my face and they are amazing, so I just used them on my legs because I have such DRY skin they really could use an exfoliation, just tried today and will write another review in a week with my results. Hope this works at $35 for 60 pads and I use one for each leg, not too bad if it works, lets keep our fingers crossed. BTW my legs suck these pads dry so i use the last bit left in the pad on the backs of my hands, dont spare a drop. If this works I may just have to order this stuff by the case, LOL!
I've tried this product & like it well enough, just not sure if I'm going to re-order. Pros: non-irritating, doesn't clog pores, affordable. Cons: very sticky!!!
Intensive Glow Pads Brightening Treatment
I originally bought this product because I have so many products from the bareMinerals Skincare line, and I thought that this would be a great addition to nighttime regimen. It works really well! It brightens and renews the look of my skin, and it feels great rubbing it on: smooth and cold/refreshing.
I use the pads every other night or so (because my face can feel a little raw if I use them too much - I tend to scrub too hard), and they have lasted a while. Also, I cut them in half and am still able to get my whole face (even though it's a bit tougher to hold on to half the pad).
Tip: Because I use the Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser as a mask twice a week, my face can sometimes feel a little raw when I use both products in conjunction too frequently. If this happens to you, just cut down on using one or both of the products, or put yourself on a schedule (like I do). I usually use the smooth side of the pad because it is not as exfoliating.
Tip: Sometimes can be a little sticky if used in the morning. I only use it a couple nights a week. One time I used it in the morning and it made my mineral makeup go on a little funny.
Ive used this for over a month now. Brought it to use between Md microdermabrasion kit( which is unbelievable ) started off slowly since I didn't want drying. Which never happened thankfully. Took the advise of others to cut in half. Would recommend doing it after using for a week or so. Whole ones are better for really cleaning the entire face. After I got good results than started to use the halfs for daily usage. When using before make up or primer I would wait a few minutes since it can leave a tad tacky feeling on face if not completed dried. Primer tends to pill and ready wear/ foundation can look caked on. Neither fun to deal with or correct. Once dried primer glides on foundation applies evenly and smoothly. Your face will notice the difference and so will others! Pores will seem smaller discoloration is less noticeable the appearance of lines diminish. Face is tighter brighter and clearer. I do use the entire line of BE on face which I belive makes the difference since they are all formulated to work together. If you are looking for a pad to remove that dead layer of skin on you this is it. Takes your face to another leval of beautiful- you will glow!
I found that this product lives up to its claims--it really leaves my skin noticeably different. My skin had become dull with uneven texture: it looked like I had a dirty film on my face. I use the glow pads on alternate days from a drugstore brand at-home microdermabrasion kit and the uneven texture was greatly reduced within a week or two of use. Using a glow pad every two or three days has allowed my skin to maintain its improved bright, fresh, clear, healthy appearance, and I couldn't be happier. I have also noticed that my sun spots have faded a bit, although to which product this is attributable I am unsure, but I believe the AHAs in this one played a role. My family members have commented on the improved appearance of my skin since I began using these glow pads. This product is worth every penny to me and I will continue using it in my skin care regimen. Many thanks!
