Verdict:

I’m not really a cleansing pad kinda person. The thought of cleansing my face just with a wipes bother me. Especially if it’s only a mere pad! It bothers me even more. When I first bought it, I thought since it’s a pad it’s an exfoliating toner. Apparently it is what it is! *dibaca dulu dong sis kalau beli barang!*

On one fine day I wiped this pad on a wet face and I saw a little bit of foam, a faint one. But it’s enough to freak me out that I’ve probably used it the wrong way. I’m not sure really how to use this until now but I used it as a second cleanser eversince and wipe it across my wet face until it’s a bit foamy. Faintly.

It’s really good, especially when you’re having a sensitive skin moment and acne sprouting out. Not drying and the act of wiping the pad across the face is somehow soothing.

Considering it’s 10 pounds for 60 discs, it’s quite expensive. I rather buy the exfoliating pad but this is afterall pH 4! You might want to keep this handy. With Salicylic Acid some more!

SLS? No. But it does contain Alcohol Denat. Blimey! But you may want to read this article for a balancing view.

Available in Indonesia? Nope. I got mine from ASOS, it’s so convenient to purchase product from them. But the UK price is much steeper compared to the US. £9.95 in the UK and $12.99 in the US (available in Ulta).
