Ask a Question
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.
Active: Salicylic Acid 2%. Inactive: Alcohol Denat., Water (Aqua), Glycolic Acid, Butylene Glycol, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water, Triethanolamine, Arginine, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Symphytum Officinale Extract, Prunus Persica (Peach) Fruit Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Allantoin, Fragrance (Parfum).

      I have tried several products for my teenage daughter's skin and this THE only one that gives consistent results! TO use it, you have to wipe over entire clean face and then turn it over and repeat. She even uses it the morning without washing her face and when used like this her skin clears up in about 4-5 days!

      Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Max Complexion Correction Pads:

      I suffer from hormonal and cystic acne in my jaw line. I was searching for a new product to help with managing it and I read a ton of review of other people with the same problem. I bought this and noticed a difference in TWO days. Seriously. I even got asked if I was pregnant because my skin was glowing. I'm so happy with his products I've bought 3 others to use in conjunction with these! You won't be sorry!

        My son used these pads daily. We have tried everything for his acne-prone skin, but being a teenage boy he doesn't like to spend a lot of time with a daily ritual of cleansing, followed by a toner and moisturizer. These pads are like all three in one!!

          The strongest over the counter acid. Convenient pads for applying. Just wash your hands after using or your skin around your cuticles will start to peel and dry out. Too strong to use everyday- so one tub will last a while. Use 2-3 days a week and reap the benefits of baby soft skin & small pores the remainder of the week.

            Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Max Complexion Correction Pads:

            First off, WOW!!!!! I am in love. The last time I used some sort of "correction pad" was in HS and the results were pitiful and my skin was dry as the Sahara. These pads have really been key to clearing up my skin.
            While I do think the scent is strong, I can get by that so long as the product does its job and this product is top notch. The pads are highly soaked and I find that cutting them in half works wonderfully on preserving the product and not wasting it as it drips down my face. This also saves some moneyyyyyyyy in the long run!!!! Will be buying again for sure!!!

            I wanted to love this product because I have had great success with glycolic acid before. This was too strong. I don't have acne but I do have scars and hyperpigmentation that I wanted to expedite the cellular turnover for but It dried me out so bad and ended up causing some bumps. If your acne is mild don't get this one. This product is only for those with severe acne.

                Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Max Complexion Correction Pads:

                Preface: I believe my acne is almost entirely stress related. I'm in my mid-30s and live in the 'burbs.

                Over the winter I started getting very bad acne on and below my jawline and onto my neck; something I had never experienced before. My skin care routine had not changed and I had not added any new products. It was embarrassing and painful. I went to the derm and got some medication which did nothing. I tried the PTR acne dots and had good luck with those so I thought I'd try these pads. I used them once at night after washing my face before bed. Talk about a quick fix! My skin started clearing up almost overnight. I ran out of the pads and didn't buy more since my skin was looking good and POOF the acne came back. After figuring out that the only change had been these pads, I ran to the store and bought more. Now my skin is clear again!
                I have combo skin that can REALLY take abuse: scrubs, peels, masks, whatever. These do make my skin tingle during application in a "I'm getting irritated" way, but I let it dry and it quickly passes. I probably would not recommend these for someone with sensitive or dry skin, but since I don't have either, I can't say for sure. They smell like a medicated pad to me, but who cares? My skin cleared up!

                    A:

                    These two products can be used together but you are correct, they may be too drying to some skins. You can work up to using them together daily but first add the pads in every other day and work up to daily. You can play around with using these products by alternating days or by targeting specific areas of the face or body rather than everywhere.

                    A:

                    Yes, you can use this product as a "toner" in that it is a water-thin formula, just already applied to a cotton round/pad and is intended to be left on. This is stronger than a traditional toner though in that it has active ingredients at OTC levels where most toners are much more mild. Just keep that in mind.

                    A:

                    Hi, yes, you can use both products at the same time. I suggest you maybe not layer them and instead use one in the morning and one at night? Also, the Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads are rinse-off where the Max Complexion Correction Pads are leave-on. The Max Pads will help with pores more than the Peel Pads which provide more benefits to help fine lines and wrinkles.

                    A:

                    Yes, they both do reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, and are just as effective in this capacity. The major differences are that the Complexion Correction Pads have a good deal of alcohol and specifically target acne, oily skin and problem skin concerns. Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads do not have alcohol and feature both AHAs and BHA (salicylic acid) together they address problem skin concerns, pores and fine lines and wrinkles.

If undue dryness or scaling occurs, use pads once daily or every other day or alternate with PTR Gentle Complexion Correction Pads.
