TIA Review by Lynn:
Thank you, Envy! These Envy Skin Clarifying Acne Treatment Pads saved my face! I'm 42 and have had nice skin all my life. For some odd reason last fall (about nine months ago), I started to get serious acne breakouts on the lower half of my face, i.e. nose to chin. The acne got quite severe (i.e. deep under the skin), and I was seriously embarrassed about it. Why at 42 am I starting to look like a 14-year-old teenager? I was under a lot of stress at work, which I know can cause breakouts, but I never had breakouts to this degree or over such a long time period. During the last nine months, I tried everything from changing my diet, my makeup and skin care. My dermatologist even gave me products to try. Nothing was really working. Then Valerie gave me these Envy Skin Clarifying Acne Treatment Pads to test out for Truth in Aging. Voila- my miracle product had finally arrived.

I received these Envy Skin Clarifying Acne Treatment Pads on a Friday, so I decided to dedicate my weekend to improving my skin. I used these along with Sevani Advanced Complexion Corrector and an exfoliating brush on a regular basis over the weekend. I actually used the Envy Skin Clarifying Acne Treatment Pads several times a day, which is more than as directed by the company. By Monday, my face was making serious improvements. It's now the third week in July, and I'm basically 95% acne free. I have a few minor spots, but I'm essentially back to my previous non-blemished skin.

I do believe the combination of products really helped. I primarily used Envy, but the brush helped to remove dead skin, whiteheads and blackheads. Sevani Advanced Complexion Corrector helped much with the healing process, especially if my skin started to dry out.

My litmus test is- would you buy it? Was there value in it? I can positively answer: yes! In fact, I don't think I could live without these Envy Skin Clarifying Acne Treatment Pads.

    Amazing!! I am in my late 50's and NEVER had acne as a teenager or even earlier in my life. A few years ago, I started using a Clarisonic Mia™ device and got the first acne I've ever experienced in my life. It comes intermittently and mostly on my chin. It got very bad just before I purchased this product. I noted that the pads were quite big for the three fairly large blemishes I needed to treat. So, I used some sterilized small surgical scissors (I'm a retired physician--but ANYONE can buy these on the Internet for a very reasonable price) and cut the first pad into four quarters. I used a quarter of a pad two times each day. In a matter of five days, all of my deep, painful, and very red chin blemishes were gone. I was so worried that I was not going to get a full remedy with these pads, that I purchased "Sevani Advanced complexion corrector" from TIA when I ordered the Clarity MD Clarifying Acne Treatment Pads. This product is a spray which I used after I applied the pads and let my face dry from the first application. Although the Clarity MD did it's job, I feel like the combination of the two has helped lighten some of previous blemishes left on my chin. I highly recommend these great pads. I would also consider adding the "Sevani" product if you have any blemishes that have left their mark.

    My skin can be quite moody. One day I'll wake up with a clear complexion, and the next I have little blemishes on my forehead and a giant monster on my chin. For the past month, these pads have been keeping my 24-year-old skin well-behaved without any irritation or harshness. I had been using a benzoyl peroxide spot treatment as needed, but it often left my skin itchy. With these, I'm finding an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! I use these every other night, and look forward to the fresh smell as I glide a pad across my face.

    I tried these pads after six months of my a hyper-reactive phase of breaking out because of products. I was at my wit's end and couldn't find anything to stop the breakouts. These pads worked a miracle. The existing pimples were gone in just a few days. I continued to use the pads for a week or so, and they stopped more pimples from forming in the same areas they had been forming for months. After my skin cleared up, I had another small bout of reactivity when I tried to reintroduce a product. The pads stopped the small bumps from forming into pimples and were gone within a day. These pads do what they say and are both an effective zapper of existing acne as well as a prevention from new breakouts.

    Because my acne was a result of reactivity to products, I was worried that I'd have irritation or a bad reaction to these pads. But I took other reviewers' advice and used soothing/calming products immediately after I used the pads (for me, that was LVC toner and Snowberry soothing facial oil.) I've had problems before with products drying out my skin, but I experienced absolutely no irritation or drying with these pads, maybe because I followed them up with soothing products like others did..

    These pads are a true miracle worker, and I'll never be without them!

    love these pads! I've been getting a mess of breakouts on my chin recently, and these help clear them up within a day or two. It's recommended to use 3 times a day but it's a bit too drying for my skin, so I keep it to morning & nighttime. There is a slight tingling, but nothing that my sensitive skin can't deal with.

    I am 47 years old. Aging skin is my main concern, but I still have blemishes to contend with (which doesn’t seem fair after all these years!). My skin is hard to categorize: it is sensitive and tends toward redness and flaky dry areas in reaction to unpleasant products; at the same time, I have T-zone oiliness with frequent blocked pores in that area as well. And finally, I have red undertones with rosacea. So, with all these issues I have to be careful to keep my pores clean, but not stripped.

    I can recommend the Envy Medical acne treatment pads for people with oily, breakout-prone skin, or skin that is not sensitive. I do think it will help clear your skin. For my extraordinarily sensitive skin, which tends to be too dry already, this product was just too irritating and drying. While I think the pads helped clear up some of my breakouts, I felt that my skin was too dried out after using this to justify continued use.

    The last time I used an anti-acne program was Proactiv, circa 1999. This time, over a decade later, I opted for a more informed, less commercialized option: Envy Medical Skin Clarifying Acne Treatment Pads. Soaked in the exfoliant salicylic acid and the foaming surfactant sodium lauryl glucose carboxylate, the pads deliver a well-rounded punch to acne. These skin-cleansing ingredients are balanced out by aloe vera gel and menthol to soothe and cool the skin. Instead of denatured alcohol, often added to acne-fighting products because of its astringent and antimicrobial properties, these treatment pads incorporate the gentler witch hazel. The benefits of this natural extract extend beyond its astringent effect, which constricts body tissues and closes pores. Witch hazel’s tannin and flavonol components endow it with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory powers as well.

    Salicylic acid is also a keratolytic agent, which functions by relaxing the cohesiveness of the outer layer of the epidermis and dissolving the intercellular cement. Envy’s treatment pads contain the optimal amount of the active ingredient without stripping the skin of natural moisture, since concentrations of salicylic acid greater than 2% are known to trigger skin irritation.

    My sensitive skin is no stranger to burning, itching, and peeling from even the most benign irritant. But swiping my face with Envy’s pads did not produce the usual drying sensation that I have come to expect from anti-acne solutions. A few days later, the majority of the red bumps had subsided. After two weeks of incorporating the Envy pads into my post-cleansing ritual, any adverse effects had given way to a relatively clear complexion. I haven’t been able to shelve my concealer quite yet, but I can thank Envy’s treatment pads for giving me a respite from a stubborn environmental breakout befitting a teenager.
