Waxperts Wonder Pads (40s), €7.95. No press samples included.
Waxperts Wonder Pads were created to treat ingrown hairs, but they quickly made a name for themselves as a multi-purpose product. They help reduce blemishes, beard/stubble spots and Keratois Pilaris (bumps on the upper arm).
Ingrown hairs aren’t something I suffer from and what I spent years thinking was Keratois Pilaris turned out to be a symptom of a grass allergy, so the Waxperts Wonder Pads are firmly a spot treatment for me.
Ingredients wise they contain; Aqua, Glycerin, Alcohol Denat, Polyglyceryl-4 Caprate, Panthenol, Salicylic Acid, Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract (Rosemary Leaf Extract), Phenoxyethanol, Benzoic Acid, Dehydroacetic Acid.
Instruction wise; I use them on nights when there is no other exfoliant in my routine. After double cleansing, I swipe the textured side of the pad over my face and neck. I flip the pad over and the repeat the process with the non-textured side.
Scent wise the pads could be described as fresh. I think it’s the rosemary, but it’s not overpowering.
I’ve been using the Waxperts Wonder Pads since I ran out of the First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads in December. They both do an excellent job at keeping those annoying under the skin bumps under control and non-existent.
What makes the Wonder Pads different is that they use Salicylic Acid rather than Glycolic Acid. This means they are particularly good for people with spots or acne prone skin, which is a category I’m still getting used to finding myself in.
In a market full of exfoliating products it’s great to find something that does what it is supposed to and doesn’t cost the earth. At €7.95 for 40 pads, Waxperts Wonder Pads gets a thumbs up on both counts.
