My experience:
textured cotton

The container of the Organic Fruits Peeling Finger Mitt Sebum Care pads has 25 pads that are entirely soaked in the peeling solution. These pads are unique to the brand and are something in between the famous NEOGEN and MISSHA peeling pads. Whamisa pads are made of 2-layered soft embossed cotton sheets and have a similar embossed pattern as in MISSHA peeling pads.  At the same time, the way these pads are made resembles the NEOGEN ones. The exception is that these do not have a gauze layer for extra mechanical exfoliation making them super suitable for people with sensitive skin who doesn’t want to have that extra scrubby feeling on the skin.

In terms of scent these pads have a mild herbal fragrance to them and I can distinctively smell the apple seed oil. Overall it is similar to the Apple sebum treatment from this brand. You do smell a trace of alcohol in these as well.  The size of the pads is similar to other brands and they are thoroughly soaked in the peeling solution. There is no dripping and you can use the pad on the rough skin areal of the body as well.

I usually take one pad an use one side of the mitt to exfoliate. Then I turn it around and use the clean side to remove the last traces of dirt and grime off my face. With the same side I proceed to exfoliating my knees and elbows to keep the dry skin there at bay. Once I’m done I just rinse my face and proceed with my skincare routine wether it is AM or PM.

I am using these pads every other day and went through half of the packaging. For the results so far, I’ve seen that my skin is looking way better than before. The surface of the skin is definitely more smooth and less textured than before. I can’t say wether it is only the pads or the fact that all of the Whamisa products in my current routine are doing so great that I barely have any blemishes appearing on my skin.

Anyhow, straight after use you will feel how soft and smooth your skin is. Also try doing the 7-skin method after those peeling pads and you will probably notice that all the layers are absorbing much faster and the freshly exposed new layer of the skin remains super hydrated, especially on the next day. If I would have to make a choice based on the performance of the pads after one month’s use, I’d  rank it as follows: Whamisa, NEOGEN, MISSHA. Simply because I see most results in terms of softness, hydration and less blemishes from Whamisa. Overall, I’m super happy with these pads even though the price is on the steeper end when compared to similar pads.

Pros:
