Did your face react when you first acid toned?

Just that really.

I bought the Nip and Fab extreme pads (got the extreme ones because less alcohol and include salicylic acid) after various recs. Used one pad on my face and neck on Wed night. My face has been slightly more sensitive since then, with more tendency to go red. I generally have slightly sensitive skin - I don't have rosacea, but I am careful about what I put on my face, and I don't tend to rub with washcloths. The only other thing I've changed this week is my cleanser - I ran out of my normal one so I've been using up various samples before another pot of my usual one arrives.

Any advice or experiences would be great, thank you.

I use Bravura Calendula toner. It just tingles a bit after application, but not for long. If I follow it with their glycolic moisturiser it'll tingle for maybe 15 minutes.

Think I'd stop using if I could still feel a reaction after 4 days!

Not an expert though!

I think you're right cries I so wanted this to be the solution for my blackheads and uneven skin tone!

It could well be the various samples of cleansers that are causing the problem. Try the nip and fab again after you settle back to your normal cleansing routing.

routine, not routing!

Thanks burnished, good idea. I'll give it a few weeks and then try again.

Using Clarins gentle toner (with nettle I think) and is working wonders on my blackheads, pores, and pigmentation spots.... You do need to use an SPF with it though as it can leave you more prone to burning.

I use the Nip & Fab extreme pads and I have quite sensitive skin. I get a sensation similar to sunburn after use (at bedtime) but a shower and rich moisturiser in the morning (Aldi caviar day) seems to completely calm it and gives great results. How often ate you using the pads? I only use them 1-2 times per week.
