Fans adore these resurfacing pads for 'smoother, clearer' skin — and they're 50% off

What is it?

If you're looking for (powerful, affordable) ways to deep-clean your skin (and who isn't?), Amazon has a deal for you: Glycolic Acid Resurfacing Pads from QRxLabs are marked down! The solution smooths, exfoliates and calms skin. Plus, some shoppers say it even helps to fade signs of aging.

These resurfacing pads contain glycolic acid along with vitamins B5, C snd E to help repair damage from UV rays, and green tea and calendula extracts for their anti-inflammatory effects.

Why is it a good deal?

The sale price brings the price of each pad down to just 50 cents, or a fraction of the price you'd pay for a professional facial. Also, this is the lowest price we've spotted for these pads since before Prime Day.

Why do I need this?

These pads come pre-soaked with a 20% glycolic acid solution to make application simple. Glycolic acid is used to exfoliate skin without scrubbing as well as lighten pigmentation and boost collagen production to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The pads have a waffle-like texture that gently smoothes out skin while the solution moisturizes. More than 13,000 satisfied Amazon bargain hunters say that these pads have transformative powers and leave your skin glowing.

What reviewers say

Wrinkles: There's no shortage of shoppers who say these pads have reduced their appearance. "Love these glycolic wipes!" wrote one beauty enthusiast. "Cheaper than the expensive name brand I was using and it actually works better... Not only does it make wrinkles disappear but it also hydrates too."

Dark spots: Another reviewer claims hers are disappearing. "The small lines around my eyes are less visible, the acne scarring and 'age spots' have diminished significantly," they reported. "I have an olive complexion and during my pregnancy, I got a lot of brown spots around my cheeks and forehead. These are also fading."

Smoother skin: One shopper laid it all out. "I have had bumps, just stubborn bumps, that didn’t do anything but sit there on my face," they wrote. "Never got bigger, smaller, just sat there. Since I have started using these pads they have slowly started to disappear! It’s taken a while but the result is smoother, clearer and brighter skin."

Acne: One sufferer calls it an affordable treatment. "My pores are smaller, breakouts are more shallow and heal faster and the hyperpigmentation fades quicker," they wrote. "This is now a staple."

Heads up if you have very sensitive skin — a reviewer shared that it "irritates my skin a bit." If the solution does cause some sensitivity, make sure you follow it up with a moisturizer, like this top-rated one from Neutrogena.

These resurfacing pads exfoliate the skin and reduce scars, bumps, lines and wrinkles, leaving the skin feeling softer and smoother.
