Max Complexion Correction Pads
Max Complexion Correction Pads share the core problems of many anti-acne pads: an alcohol-based solution and a pH too high for salicylic acid to exfoliate, which won’t help blemished skin in the least. The amount of alcohol in these pads will stimulate oil production at the base of your pores and won’t help reduce the redness that goes hand-in-hand with acne. When it comes to anti-aging benefits, alcohol isn’t what you want, either because it breaks down collagen. This is absolutely not recommended.
Regulates healthy cell turnover and delivers proven anti-aging benefits that help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Provides a veil of fresh peach bellini scent that replaces traditional medicinal antiseptic pads.
Peter Thomas Roth At-A-Glance
Peter Thomas Roth is a large but straightforward line with mostly uncomplicated formulations that, for the most part, are quite good and state-of-the-art. Unlike many product lines, most of the acne, AHA, BHA, sunscreen, and moisturizing products contain what they should to be effective and helpful for skin.
Even more impressive are the well-formulated cleansers, sunscreens, AHA products, and skin lighteners. The moisturizers have improved somewhat, and most are now packaged so that the light- and air-sensitive ingredients remain stable. In fact, Roth's packaging deserves special mention because it is exceptionally utilitarian.
After all that glowing praise, what you should be aware of are the instances of products containing potential irritants (noted in their respective reviews) as well as the products in jar packaging that contain ingredients which are sensitive to air and light.
