I love these pads!

Since I've been sticking to a budget for '08 I've eliminated facials from my monthly spending. I found these amazing beta hydroxy pads from Trish McEvoy that make your skin feel soft and exfoliated, fresh from a facial clean! And the other thing I noticed is that you can actually cut the pads in half and still get the full effect. I guess this would depend on your overall face size - if it's small to average size, half the pad works fine. But if you happen to have a pancake face like this then I'd recommend using the entire pad.

So for $65 you get 40 pads, which cut in half = 80. That comes out to about .81 cents a pad. And you're only supposed to use these pads on average 2 times a week so they have the potential to last you up to 10 months. $6.50 a month sure the heck beats a $150 facial!

I will find any reason to justify a shopping purchase.

Have you tried anything from Dr. Harushka?

They sell the line at Whole Foods and I think I'm a convert. It's still as expensive as the department store make-up counter, so you don't save any money there. (Too bad.) BUT, I've never had anything work so well on my skin. I am a convert for life, I think.

They sell starter samples for $25, and it gives you everything you need for your skin type. My skin has never looked so clear and peachy.

Anyway, if you're in the market...

As I was scrolling down, obviously the first thing I saw was "I love these pads!" and thought I had stumbled onto the PMS blog by accident ;-)

BTW, I'm a strickly water girl. 20 splashes each morning!
