The product description reads: "These extreme night pads contain our highest level of glycolic acid at 5% and have been further enhanced with the addition of salicylic acid, making these your ultimate night treatment to refine pores, brighten the complexion and de-congest the skin through the improvement of the skin's natural exfoliation process."

At £15, a tub will last you a while as you only need to use a single pad, two to three times a week - a tube contains 80. And if you have more sensitive skin, it's suggested you use them just once a week - although make sure they don't irritate your complexion.

The pads key ingredients include 5% glycolic acid to gentle exfoliate and fade acne scarring and pigmentation, and salicylic acid to penetrate and unclog pores to combat black heads and reduce blemishes.

They also contain lactic acid to remove dead cells and toxins from the skin, as well as beauty industry buzz ingredient hyaluronic acid to add a tidal wave of moisture and keep your complexion plump.

But are the results for acne as good as they sound? The reviews seem to say so.

Over on Amazon (where the pads are currently on offer at £10.47 instead of £15), the product is listed as a best seller with hundreds of positive, five and four star reviews.

"I love these and have noticed improvement in my skins texture and more even skin tone. I have less breakouts and use these every other day before bed," said one happy customer, leaving a five star review.

Somebody else advised: "Currently suffering from awful acne and these are great with helping to reduce the spots. Don't use more than 2 nights in a row as it'll majorly dry out your skin!"

Another added: "Since 14 years of age I have Struggled with acne. I can remember the endless nights of using hundreds of different creams and washes etc. But nothing worked.

"I was even prescribed antibiotics for my skin at one point due to the acne being so sore. I came across these pads one night and ordered them. I have been using these for six months now and they are my absolute favourite skin care product and I will never change now. I honestly cant rate this enough."

But it's not just acne, as others claimed the pads reduced other skin problems, like wrinkles and dry skin.

"Wrinkles, flaky dryness, scales and crepey skin gone in 2 weeks," wrote one, while another shared: "Noticed a real difference in the light wrinkles on my forehead, my skin is no longer dry in the winter and it really cleans my pores!"

While most of the reviews are positive on Amazon, some complained that the pads were too strong for their skin.
