Glycolic "Peel" Pads
I recently bought a tub of glycolic acid pads made by a reputable drugstore brand. I plan to use them once a week in addition to my daily exfoliation with a washcloth.
I'm not sure what percentage of glycolic acid is present in the formula. I'm a little weary of the alcohol content, but I suppose it's used to enhance penetration of the ingredients and to bind other ingredients together...? The last few ingredients like limonene/linalool seem like they could be irritating, but they are pretty low on the list. Well made AHA products seem hard to come by, especially if you don't want to spend a lot of cash.
