Another here who loves the extreme pads. My oily, yet dehydrated, acne and rosacea prone skin loves these. I use alternative nights with retinol, and there is no stinging at all. They seem to smooth out the skin. If I'm a bit irritated at the end of the day, they seem to calm my skin, ready for my moisturising essence/serums.
I bought the extreme pads last week, when they were better than half price in boots. I've used them twice now, and my spots have all pretty much vanished. Dp even noticed a difference after the first use
I can't remember which pads I used until I just ran out but I have acne and oily and sensitive skin (eczema elsewhere, occasionally on my face) and whilst they didn't magically fix my skin they didn't make it worse so I just kept using them. I'm not sure I'd replace them though as not convinced they were really doing much for me.
I use the glycolic fix serum which is because I've read serums moisturise deeper layers of your skin than just using moisturiser. It hasn't irritated my skin or made anything worse so will stick with that.
