Did you know that Sephora has a private label brand called Sephora Collection? That’s right – this collection includes everything from face masks to face wipes to cosmetics to fragrances.
Moreover, Sephora Collection offers bargain basement prices and is the perfect way to try new products before upgrading to a brand name (or maybe you’ll love the cheaper one, who knows!).
For clearing up your skin (on a budget), the Brightening Peel Pads by Sephora Collection are only $12 for a pack of 30 and includes our acne-fighting BHA, 1% Salicylic Acid, along with exfoliating 2% Glycolic Acid and 0.5% Niacinamide (helps treat acne and fade dark spots).
While it’s not a salicylic acid peel, per se, this product works great as a daily cleansing step with active ingredients to remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, and leave you skin feeling clearer.
Sephora also commissioned an independent clinical study on 51 men and women:
- 82% said their skin was less shiny/oily in 1 week
- 73% said their skin felt smoother in 1 week
- 69% said their spots/blemishes were reduced in 1 week
- 71% said their skin appeared brighter in 2 weeks
- 73% said their skin was less congested in 2 weeks
Overall, these results suggest that this product works within 1-2 weeks for about 70% of people.
Finally, I really like that the ingredient list is short and sweet (only 9 in total! Now that is minimalist).
My Verdict: The Sephora Collection Brightening Peel Pads are an excellent budget-friendly option for clearing up blemishes, preventing breakouts, and achieving smoother skin.
Bonus Tip: Another great deal is Sephora Collection Clarifying Peel Pads at $16 for a pack of 60.
