Travelling always makes me feel completely gross – the cabin pressure and the sitting around for hours really do nothing for my skin, and when I finally get to wherever I’m going I’m ready to scrub my face off.
The clever people at Bliss must have felt the same, and their incredi-peel glycolic resurfacing pads are what I turned to when I wanted to feel squeaky-clean. Packaged in a little box, each of the 30 spa-strength wipes is individually wrapped to allow for maximum freshness (also a plus for travelling as you can just pop as many as you need in your makeup bag).
The wipes are ridiculously convenient – they are infused with glycolic acid which exfoliates, as well as witch hazel and licorice extracts which soothe and glycerin to hydrate your skin. The pads are generously sized, and you can just snip them in half, and just store the extra part in the fridge until you need it.
After cleansing I simply wiped the cloth over my face, paying attention to any imperfections – I should warn you, you can feel the pads working; then I applied my evening night cream and 8 hour cream as usual. The next morning, I noticed that my skin looked brighter, smoother and just generally fresher – there was none of my usual post-flight breakouts just clear, clean skin. I have quite sensitive skin which can flare up easily, and I was worried that the acids would be too much – I was more than impressed – the pads seemed to just erase any impurities – and they have become a complete go-to in my skincare stash. The packaging says that you can use the pads every night, but I have averaged using them 3 times a week to keep my skin clear and soft.
The pads come in a pack of 30 for $49 and are available at www.blissworld.com
