You may have seen my Beauty Pie haul which I shared at the beginning of September, and the Beauty Pie Dr Glycolic Multi-Acid Micropeeling Pads are just one of five products I bought. I mentioned in my haul that everywhere you look right now, are gifted Beauty Pie hauls. Now I’ve been lucky enough to receive Beauty Pie products as PR samples myself, but I wanted to subscribe to them so I could test the service authentically, with no conflicts of interest.
If you’re new to the whole Beauty Pie concept, I go into more detail right here. In a nutshell, they’re a website where they offer their own products with formulas that supposedly rival or mimic higher end products. There’s no mentions of other names or products, but you can search the ingredients list and draw comparisons yourself.
In order to purchase from Beauty Pie, you *have* to subscribe to one of their monthly or annual plans if you want the “discounted” prices, or you have to pay full price. An example, a cream blush is supposedly £25, but if you’re a Beauty Pie member, you can purchase it for £8.06. The minimum subscription term is three months, and you can choose to pay £5 to £50 per month for your subscription. With your subscription, you’re given a ‘spending limit’ which means you can only purchase their products upto that spending limit.
The Beauty Pie Dr Glycolic Multi-Acid Micropeeling Pads are £9.34 if you are a Beauty Pie member. If you’re not a member, they’re £25 to purchase but I doubt anyone purchases any Beauty Pie products at the full prices, as it makes no sense when you can subscribe for as little as £5 per month, in order to access the ‘reduced’ prices.
Beauty Pie Dr Glycolic Multi-Acid Micropeeling Pads
“A quick sweep-across-the-skin after cleansing with our Multi-Acid (6.5%) Micro-Peeling Pads* will reduce clogged pores and remove complexion-dulling, dead skin cells – encouraging them not to return!
Apply daily on oily skin, acne-prone skin, or over a troublesome T-zone and twice a week for combination or dry skin types. Enriched with 5% Glycolic Acid, circulation-boosting Niacinamide, Lemon, Bilberry and Orange AHAs and skin-soothing Polysaccharides.“
The Beauty Pie Dr Glycolic Multi-Acid Micropeeling Pads contain 30 pads, and I was particularly intrigued by these acid pads because they utilise glycolic acid, niacinamide and natural fruit AHAs.
My skin loves a good acid based exfoliating pad, and they really help with my dry patches, so I love trying new pads. My personal favourites are the COSRX One Step Original Clear Pads, but I’m always on the hunt for something that will wow me more than the COSRX pads, but that’s yet to happen.
I don’t know if you can see, but there’s a big chunk of the Beauty Pie Dr Glycolic Multi-Acid Micropeeling Pads which are dry. The pads have ridges rather than raised bumps like most exfoliative pads, but three of the ridges are bone dry and that’s the case pretty much through the whole stack of 30 pads.
There’s no excess product in the pot either, so tipping the pot on its side hasn’t made any difference. With the Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Pads, there’s extra product in the pot, and they’re generously soaked in acid, but the Beauty Pie Dr Glycolic Multi-Acid Micropeeling Pads aren’t. It could be a case that the material used for the pads are thicker with a tighter weave which means the product doesn’t penetrate the material as easily.
For £9.34, I’m not wowed in all honesty. They feel nice enough, but they’re not as effective as the Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Pads, COSRX Clear Pads, Superdrug Naturally Radiant Pads, etc. I want my skin to feel instantly better for using the pads, and that’s not the case with the Beauty Pie Dr Glycolic Multi-Acid Micropeeling Pads unfortunately.
However, what I will say is that I also purchased the Liquid Toner in this range, and it’s amazing so it’s highly possible that my jar of Beauty Pie Dr Glycolic Multi-Acid Micropeeling Pads didn’t contain enough liquid which therefore affected the efficacy, but I’ll review the liquid toner very soon and let you know why I love it.
