My understanding is the pads with salicylic acid in them (Dragon's blood) are better for oily skin, open pores, blackheads etc as salicylic acid is oil soluble so will penetrate better. Glycolic acid is a humectant so will draw moisture into skin and will be better for drier skins under serum and moisturiser. I think the acid content is quite low in both types. I use the glycolic acid pads at night and salicylic acid ones each morning. I love them and my skin has never looked better. Remember SPF!
