How to use?
I use these pads, after i’ve cleansed at night, so I remove my makeup, cleanse, then use these pads then move onto the rest of night skincare routine.

My Overall Opinion 
Overall I am very impressed with these especially for £4.99, they didn’t sting, the product on the pads sank into the skin straight away, they do have a rough and smooth side so what I do is use the rough side first for a bit of exfoliation then flip the pad over and use the smooth side to massage the product into the skin. They don’t stop spots from completely forming but they do help to reduce the size of the spot etc. With them being so cheap I was expecting them to dry out quickly but they haven’t they retain the product and stay very moist. Overall very impressed.
Overall these are decent exfoliating pads, they are very thick pads compared to the boots one. They have a subtle tea tree smell, not harsh on the skin and no stinging feel. 

These are great affordable exfoliating pads. 

Overall these pads are pretty similar the one's I would recommend are the Superdrug one's as they don't have that rough side to them they are very gentle on the skin. But it is all down to your skin.
