I found in the back of a cupboard a long-forgotten box of pre-soaked acid peel pads from Philosophy and have been using them every night to great effect.

At £60 for a box of 12 it might seem like a massive rip-off but just think of it as a “course” of mini-facial peels, which will reveal a new face in 12 nights and then you can forget about it and not be staring at a bottle of gycolic acid for the next 6 months and throw away half of.

It’s very simple, you just open the packet, take out the pre-soaked pad, wipe it over your face, enjoy the very mild tinging sensation, which indicates something is happening. Wait a few minutes and then moisturise, go to bed and wake up the next day with your facial skin on the road to a brighter future. Repeat 11 times.
