Sisterly Advice

I saw my sister Loren on Sunday. We were equally beauty, makeup and fashion obsessed as teenagers, mystifying our Mother, who could be showered, dressed and out the door in 15 minutes, when she wasn't rushing.

Clearly, she now thinks I am out of my mind and vice verse. Loren has become quite a makeup minimalist and only worships at the La Creme De Mer alter. She visibly shaken, when I told her I was using Terasita's 50% Glycolic Peel at home, looking for signs of my remaining skin, stretched tautly over my skull. Nonsense!!! I just completed my 3rd in a 6 week series and my skin looks FAB! (I saw a friend today who was looking great too. She recently had a peel...but at her Dermatologists office---cost??? $500).

Maybe I should have spared them both the shock and sticker price and just told them I was just using Peter Thomas Roth's Un-Wrinkle Pads, a far milder, yet highly effective, 20% hydroxy acid and peptide treatment.

Who can resist the promise of firm, clearer skin, tighter pores, more even skin tone, diminished fine lines and wrinkles and increased cellular turnover? PTR's Un-Wrinkle Pads have won rave reviews, by women of every age and skin type, on both TotalBeauty and Sephora's website. It was hard for me to imagine how one product could produce glowing reviews and glowing complexions on nearly everyone who tried it. Needless to say, my curiosity was peaked.

Un-Wrinkle Pads couldn't be easier or more convenient to use. Simply use one pad on cleansed skin and leave on from one to three minutes, depending on your tolerance for mild stinging...(you know how long I left it on for, don't you)???, and rinse with cool water. They also smartly recommend using it not just on the face, but the neck, decollete and top of hands. The pads are generously saturated, so you can easily cover that much ground. Depending on your skin type and sensitivity, they can be used nightly or 2-3 times per week. 60 pads cost $45...(that's nearly a two year supply vs. one professional peel).

Will I join the ranks of the besotted??? I believe I already next Sis.



  1. Do you know if you can get a sample to try first?


  2. Hi Helena,
    My Sephora gang is incredibly generous about sampling. Bring a zip lock baggy with you in case they don't have something appropriate to put them in...I am sure they will be accommodating.

    Let me know what you think! Ask for a couple!
