First Aid Beauty pads

Let's be real: If I could replace every step in my skin care routine with a wipe, I totally would. So imagine my delight when I realized I could trade my usual beta hydroxy acid exfoliating gel for a pad that does the resurfacing job in just a few swipes. These in particular make sloughing off dead cells a joy, thanks to non-irritating ingredients like cucumber and licorice root, the later of which has brightening properties, too. When combined with lactic and glycolic acids, the blend makes for a gentle but effective smoothing solution. I buy the pack of 60, which lasts me exactly two months—I wouldn't dream of going a day without one.
