Oh my goodness! I just had to start this review with an exclamation. The very first time I swiped the wet pad across my freshly cleansed (I use Dr. Denese Hydrating Cleanser) and toned face, I was not prepared for the "stinging" sensation which was much like a facial I once had in a salon in which I had an acid peel administered and then a laser. I actually was quite pleased to know that this "at home use" product packed such a powerful punch.
What confirmed the product to be a magic formula for fresh, radiant skin was the moment I looked in the mirror the next morning. I had forgotten about testing Advanced Firming Pads the night before. I actually did a double take and looked back in the mirror and smiled. I am a 40's something woman and radiance upon waking does not occur often ;).
