Max Complexion Correction Pads

60 ct Item 2102543

With a fresh peach bellini scent, medicated double-sided-soft/textured acne pads by Peter Thomoas Roth help to minimize the appearance of pore size and offer anti-aging benefits. Includes Glycolic Acid Complex 10%, Salicylic Acid 2%, soothing Arginine, Allantoin, Whole Leaf Aloe Vera and extracts of Chamomile and Green Tea. Exclusively formulated to help cleanse skin, clear up blackheads, refine pores, and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Pads contain potent Alpha Hydroxy Acid (Glycolic Acid Complex 10%) and Beta Hydroxy Acid (Salicylic Acid 2%) in an advanced botanical formulation creating a unique, clarifying, synergistic action to help cleanse the skin, clear up active acne blemishes, minimize the appearance of pore size, and eliminate the formation of new blackheads and blemishes. Helps regulate healthy cell turnover and delivers proven anti-aging benefits that help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Double-sided pads help deliver gentle cleansing action on one side and superior pore-refining exfoliation on the textured side. Provides a veil of fresh peach bellini scent that replaces the odor of traditional medicinal antiseptic pads.

Key Ingredients & Benefits:
  • Glycolic Acid (AHA) - Helps exfoliate dead surface skin cells and helps stimulate cellular turnover
  • Salicylic Acid (BHA) - Helps to loosen sebum within the pores and prevents future breakouts
  • Arginine - Buffers the skin from irritation
  • Allantoin - Soothes and calms
  • Aloe Vera - Soothes and hydrates
  • Chamomile Extract - Comforts and soothes
  • Green Tea Extract - Anti-oxidant helps to fight free radical attack
Cleanse and rinse your face thoroughly before applying. Wipe affected area gently with pad, using light pressure. Do not scrub. Repeat with clean pad to remove remaining traces of oil, dead skin cells, pollutants and make-up residue. Because dryness can occur, apply once daily, increasing to two to three times daily as needed. If undue dryness or scaling occurs, use once daily or every other day or alternate with PTR Gentle Complexion Correction Pads.

Precautions: Do not allow pad to remain on skin. For external use only. Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.

    Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Max Complexion Correction Pads:

    I had been looking at this product for quite a while and i finally decided to bite the bullet and buy it the last time I was in Ulta. I've never had really bad acne but i do have blackheads and huge pores and this has helped tremendously with that. I also have uneven coloring on my cheeks and i feel like this has helped make that less noticeable as well.
    It makes my skin feel smoother and cleaner after using which is a huge plus. I'm a fan of strong feeling products and this is definitely one of those - it can sting a little if you have any sensitive areas but for me personally i like that.

    I will definitely be buying this again when i run out.

        Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Max Complexion Correction Pads:

        This is one of the worst things I have put on my face! I don't usually write reviews but I am really unhappy with this purchase. I was looking for something to reduce the size of pores, get rid of small bumps, and improve overall texture. This immediately made my skin look worse. I thought with time it would start to improve but it only got worse. I broke out really bad and even after i stopped using it my skin is still taking a long time to heal. I would not recommend, WAY overpriced and not effective.

                Finally tried this a few months ago and now I cannot live without it! I am 47 with menopausal acne and combo skin, and this stuff really works for me. You WILL feel it - it stings a bit when you put it on, but only lasts for a few seconds. I use it once daily in the evening before bed. Even when I do get a pimple or a breakout, it dries it up in a day or two. I have fair, sensitive skin. No problems using it daily.

                  I use this product right after I wash my face but before I use any creams/serums. My pores are smaller, my breakouts are almost non-existent. If I do get a pimple it doesn't stick around very long.

                      I have easily congested pores around my mouth that I have dealt with for my entire adult life (currently mid-30s). I get the occasional pimple, along with lots of tiny bumps that were not too visible, but I hated the texture of my skin. After using this product I saw an immediate improvement, the tiny bumps were gone after a few days and I now only get one pimple every few months. I have been using these pads for about 6-8 months now. This is the only product I have used that has dramatically improved the texture of my skin and decreased breakouts. My skin is now glowing and smooth, and my dark spots are fading. I enjoy the peach smell but it does smell artificial. When I use the pad I press the textured side first to my face and then finish with the smooth side. I love these pads, truly a game changer!

                          The acne pads have alcohol and are very strong. You can use them in the areas that you get acne on but avoid the red, dry, sensitive areas. You should also make sure you are exfoliating regularly in the areas you get breakouts. I recommend a gentle exfoliator like FIRMx Peeling Gel.

                          This product does not contain benzoyl peroxide. It contains Salicylic Acid and Glycolic Acid. This is a rather strong product so I recommend starting to use it about once a week and then building up to more frequent use once you see how your skin is tolerating it. Also, you may want to start with just targeting the areas of concern and avoiding drier areas.

                          This product would be great for those concerns. I also recommend AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel. The combination of Salicylic and Glycolic Acids are great for both treating active acne and for helping to reduce the appearance of acne that isn't active but is still visible.
