To be completely honest, it’s been quite a while since anything from Avon grabbed my attention, so consequently I had this pot of Anew Clinical Even Texture & Tone Advanced Resurfacing Peel pads sitting in my collection generating very little enthusiasm for quite a while, even though I’d heard amazing things from various sources. In the words of everyone’s favourite Beverly Hills prostitute: big mistake – HUGE; these peel pads are absolutely phenomenal.
The Avon Anew Clinical Even Texture & Tone Advanced Resurfacing Peel pads are basically treatment pads that you use 2-3 times a week. Their main acids are glycolic acid, salicylic acid and hyaluronic acid – so a trio of three amazing, hard-working, results-delivering acids – alongside other lovely ingredients such as aloe vera. You use them in much the same way you would an exfoliating toner; you work them all over the face, leave for a few moments to dry, then carry on with the rest of your skincare. This is a powerful treatment that definitely tingles on application, but interestingly, it doesn’t redden my skin at all, whereas there are products with far less of a tingle that do. I have to limit myself with using these as if I allowed myself to do whatever I like, I would use them everyday. The morning after application is so extremely noticeable as skin looks and feels incredible; it’s smoother, clearer, more refined, plumper and just generally a lot, lot better. I would particularly recommend these for use during a breakout as they really do reduce the size and redness of any blemishes. I use these in a simple routine: cleanse, peel pad, moisturise (my favourite combination is Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm, these pads, then finishing with Indeed Labs Moisture Jelly) and I can’t actually remember the last time a single product had such phenomenal impact. These are £15 for a pot of 30 which will last you a couple of months (or less if you’re as bad as me and use them more than recommended) and I will definitely be replacing my stash once I run out.
