Review Avon Foot Works Pedi-peel Pads

Foot care is one of those topics that isn't covered much on blogs and like them I also often tend to neglect my feet... It's a shame because each day they have to make a great effort, surely that's worth a little taking care of. But hence to me being lazy I ordered a jar of pads by Avon, intented for a peeling effect. Quick & easy taking care of them, sounds great!
Peel away damaged skin on feet with a fast acting glycolic acid formula. The convenient wipe on pads are infused with aloe vera and fruit extracts to help moisturise and renew skin. 55 pads.

Water/Eau, Ammonium Glycolate, Glycolic Acid, Sd Alcohol 40-B, Dipropylene Glycol, Glycerin, Chamomilla Recutita (matricaria) Flower Extract, Ananas Sativus (pineapple) Fruit Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract, Lactic Acid, Malic Acid, Glucose, Biosaccharide GUM-1, Parfum/Fragrance, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Methylparaben, Disodium Edta 
The pads come in a jar that is only sealed at the top. I paid around 4 euros for it and it contains 55 pads. The jar looks a bit cheap with the plastic and silver stickering on it - not that I expected something fancy. The pads have a weird scent, a bit medical but it isn't all bad either - I can live with it. I've been using it for several weeks & I use one pad per foot and just gently swipe it over my skin. When applying it there's a refreshing feeling to your foot and afterwards it leaves them softer. But it also works a bit drying, I already have dry skin but after using this they need a little extra cream. Even though this leaves your skin softer, it doesn't have the same effect as a peeling. These pads are only a mild exfoliation through the glycolic acid in it and cannot be compared to a peeling.
The goods: price, leaves foot soft

The bads: medical scent, jar packaging, works drying, isn't a 'peeling'

To sum it up this is an ok product, especially for a quick "fresh'n up" or when your foot don't need a peeling but could use 'something'. Do you really need it? Probably not, as using a scrub or peeling has a better effect... But hey, if you tend to be a bit lazy - this is nice to have laying around.
