Intensive Glow Pads Brightening Treatment
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!
Not a fan
I bought these and couldn't wait to try them. Very disappointed in them. They leave your face feeling very sticky. I do not feel as if they live up to their promise. No renewing. No brightening.
Another great step
Love it just wish they were more saturated in product
Didn't enjoy these
Love almost everything from bare minerals but I did not care for these. Irritated my skin & ended up breaking out worse.
Does what it says..
Ok I just used a glow pad for the first time .. I just started using the ready foundation and now my foundation feel so good including the primer that reduces oil.. I was a little unsure about whether this foundation was going to work for me,with the right boosters its going to work. Just cleanse exfoliate , use a glow pad all over your skin an moisturizer, use primer ..
Thank you Lislie.
ADDICTED TO GLOW PADS
They make my skin look so refreshed and luminous. People are always commenting on how dewy my skin looks. I glow all the time, and I now feel confident enough to go out to run errands without makeup on!
Best Solution EVER!!!
I love this treatment. When you use it at night, you can see the dirt from your skin on the pad, which I like because I know that my skin is clean. I would recommend this product to anyone with acne or acne scars, as long as you don't use the exfoliating cleanser the next morning (if you have sensitive skin).
Gentle Deep Clean
I use these pads after I have washed my face, just before bed. I am amazed at how much dirt/oil is on the pad even after cleansing! It is a very deep clean but still gentle on my face. I use at least 3-4 times per week and I love the 'glow' my face has in the morning!
My face is smoother than ever!
I am beyond pleased with this product! I had extremely dry, flaky skin before trying these pads. I use the exfoliating side at night, and I use the smooth side in the morning. My skin looks hydrated and smooth all day long! So in love with this product!!!!
These pads are so awesome!
I use this right after I wash my face at night. I've noticed a huge improvemnt in the brightness and texture of my skin. Not to mention my pores are smaller on and around my nose and cheek bones. These pads get your skin ready for moisturizer and other BE skin products. I use the active cell renewal night serum, purely nourishing moisturizer, and then pure transformation night treatment as well as the renew and hydrate eye cream. I have never been happier with my skin!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product!
I have been in search of the flawless face for most of my adult life.... currently using around 7-10 products per day to reach all of my skin care needs, I started using these about 6 months ago as part of my regimen in helping to bring down my post-blemish hyperpigmentation. This has helped me tremendously in that arena! I pray Bare Minerals never discontinues this one!
I love this product. It has helped clear up my acne. I use these pad about every other day because my skin dries out if I use it everyday. It is worth every penny and I have recommended it to my sister and Mom.
Not For Me!
I do not have sensitive skin yet this product has caused me much trouble: burning/stinging, redness, inflamation... I will be returning this.
Great to get my glow on every morning
I'm on my 4th container of these little darling pads. I've been using these pads in the a.m. and am delighted with how they make my skin look and feel. Smooth, glowing skin, just what I want in the morning. After that, everything goes on smoothly and beautifully. If you haven't tried them yet, buy yourself a present you definately are worth it. You Glow Girls!
I have a combination of oily and dry, and extremely sensitive skin. The reviews looked very positive for the most part, so I decided to try out the product, even though it seemed pretty expensive for skin care. After using it for about a week, my face was covered in large bumps with acne forming underneath. I stopped using it and the acne slowly went away after several weeks. Since there were many pads left, I only use it on my back now (which has uneven skin tone) so that in case I do break out there, at least it'll be hidden under my shirt. So far no breakouts there, but still very disappointed that it didn't work on my face.
My skin has not felt this wonderful, soft, and smooth in a long time...if ever! I recently purchased Glow Pads and am so glad I did. They are somewhat expensive so I tried cutting the pad in half. It works great and now I feel like I can use this product daily. I'm going to suggest these to a friend as well as my mom.
I was skeptical, but I am happy I took a chance.
As a social worker, I don't have much money to spend taking care of myself, so I was skeptical about buying this product. I figured, why bother when I can get a cheap version at the drug store. The glow pads are far better than any over the counter product I have ever tried. They help sluff off any dead skin and make your skin so smooth. I will also say that my bareminerals makeup looks even better now that I have been using the glow pens. The makeup goes on so smooth and stays on much better because it has a great palette to start with. I want to thank my Beauty Ambassador Kelly for turning me onto this, and I am definitely going to try stuff she suggests from now on!
I am almost 65 years old, and after using Bare Escentuals products for about 5 years, I can honestly say that people guess my age as 20 years younger. Using the pads at night, combined with the Night Serum has made even more of a difference in my skin. i love that the products even my skin tone, make my skin more supple and add a glow that makes me feel 20 years younger. I love all the products, but this one is extra special!
I La-La-LOVE this product
I really love this product!!! I received a couple pads in a sample from a boutique in Chicago back in March. I tried out the sample the next few days and have to say that I saw an immediate difference in my skin. I literally had a "glow" to my skin that not only I noticed but my friends did as well. It helped reduce some of the red irritated spots I have on my skin as well as gave me a fine smooth looking finish. My face also felt refreshed after application. A couple of quick notes about this product. I only use this product at night after washing with the exfoliating treatment cleanser. After using a glow pad on my face, I usually follow up with a moisturizer as well. Next the pad has two different sizes that can be utilized, a smooth softer size, verses a bumpy exfoliating side. Each is great, however i tend to use the smoother side from day to day and use the exfoliating side once a week or so. Lastly, as much as I love these pads I was initially going through them quickly. I got an idea from a sales associate to cut the pads in half, since the pads are pretty well saturated. This idea was brilliant and has definitely prolonged the longevity of my stock. This product is a really good one, a tad bit more pricey and you can go through them quickly; just be aware they can be quite addictive. I have already recommended this to my friends and I have received nothing but positive feedback from them.
You must try these!
I was adviceed by a sales personal that these Intensive Glow Pads Brighteninh Treatment was great for healthier looking skin , as it was a new product. The salesperson said that see had been using them for a little while and she had seen a major difference in her skin. Another salesperson as confirmed that the product was great additional to my skin care regimen. I purchased them and can't go with out them. I use them both day and night, and my skin has made a dramatic change. Thanks BE and Leslie.
Heres To Clearer and Beautiful Skin
Received my skincare products today; my skin feels so clean and soft and smooth. You are right u only need a little of the foamy cleanser because it goes a long way lathering up. Just massaging it in felt so good.
Glow Pads Treatment
I bought these a couple of weeks ago and use them everyday. They make my face feel smooth and refreshed. Love the tingly feeling and I think my skin does look better.
I have bought so many of BE products, hoping one of them would work. This was the final last time i will ever buy another product from BE. These "glowing skin pads" make your skin greasy and i break out every time i try to use them. WASTE OF MONEY!
I have been using proactiv on and off for many years and have acne prone skin, but proactiv always leaves my skin dry and makes my skin peel a lot. I started using this a month or so ago and love it! My skin isn't dry and doesn't peel, and I have barely had any acne, and if I do, it goes away within a day or so! And my skin is softer, my pores are small, and my skin isn't tight like it is with proactiv. I also use the purifying cleanser and just love bare minerals :)
