Ah, my teen years. Such a simpler time. My biggest worry consisted of what to wear to dances. “Mortgage” wasn’t even in my vocabulary.

And my skincare?

A quick swoop of an acne pad and I was ready for the day.

What if I told you that skincare could be that easy again?

Magically easy, even.

Introducing The Magic Pads, an all-in-one skin care treatment that’s as simple as can be.

The Magic Pads


Developed by Rob Harmon, a makeup artist and hairstylist with a long and impressive resume (most recently Broadway’s Wicked), Magic Pads deal with skin care concerns from pores to acne to signs of aging.

All in one little pad!


The Magic Pads Ingredients

Unscrew the sleek but simplistic black jar and there sits a stack of cotton pads, saturated in a mixture of Glycolic Acid, Organic Willow Bark, Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin E suspended in an organic Aloe Vera juice base.

Just five little ingredients, but check out what they do:

Glycolic Acid: derived from sugar cane, it’s the smallest molecule structure of all Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids (AHA) so it penetrates the skin better. This little wonder reduces visible signs of aging, evens skin tone and helps with acne AND dryness.

Willow Bark: naturally clears pores and exfoliates (psst, it’s Salicylic Acid.)

Hyaluronic Acid: a humectant (moisture-binding ingredient) that’s naturally found in almost every cell in the body, The greatest concentrations are in the skin, especially young healthy skin. Applied to skin, it increases hydration and improve elasticity.

Vitamin E: an antioxidant and moisturizer.

Aloe Vera: antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties make it great for acne. It also contains both vitamin C and E so it’s an anti-aging ingredient as well.


So, five ingredients that will clear blemishes and prevent new ones, smooth and tighten skin, diminish pores, exfoliate, tone, clarify and hydrate.

The golden question: do they work?

The Magic Pads Review

They do indeed, very well. I actually love using these. That simple swipe, delivering all those powerhouse products in seconds, it’s really satisfying!

They’re also really effective.

I had a terrible round of hormonal breakouts around my chin and these swooped in and saved the day.

Poof, acne gone.

My skin also just feels and looks cleaner when I use them. They’re very gentle too, I’m not left with any dry patches like I usually am when treating acne. (If you’re more sensitive or notice dryness, you can adjust how often you use them.)

The Magic Pads are not just for your face either.

Chest, neck, shoulders or back, use them where you need them. (Take that, bacne!) Plus, they’re cruelty free, vegan and 99% organic.


They remind me a lot of a favorite pad-based product of mine, a peel that I pay A LOT more for.

Which brings me to the best part of all.

THESE ARE ONLY 19.95 for 50 PADS!

Sorry to yell, but that’s exciting. A product that truly works for under 20 bucks? That is magic!

I can’t guarantee you’ll get a date to the next dance, and you’ll still owe on your mortgage, but I promise you The Magic Pads will simplify your skincare routine.

  1. Oh these look so cute and come in a cute travel friendly packaging. If they really work on pimples I think these could be best skincare wipes since these are cute travel friendly super easy to use without any hassle of liquids and lotions.

  2. I love the ingredients in these, and they look like a great option for a quick pick me up when I don’t have time to do a full on face wash, tone, etc

  3. Only thing missing is the advice to always wear sunscreen! Especially when using those, the acids in them make skin more sensitive to sun damage.

  4. I so wanted to try these, but live in Canada and the shipping for one jar is $15.00, that’s about 18.00 in US! So disappointed. Maybe someone locale will start to import at a better price!

    1. We shared a half off international shipping code in the post. So, it would only be $7 if you want to order before the end of Feb!

  5. Okay, I bit – many thanks for the shipping coupon! I’m always on the lookout for straightforward, fragrance free options for my sensitive skin and this definitely fits the bill. And even shipping internationally at full price, it’s not crazy expensive. Hopefully the pads work for me as well as they did for you!

  6. I LOVE The Magic Pads– the kind of appreciation that’s worth shouting about! They’re simple, effective, and a huge bargain, too. I don’t get breakouts too often, but I do get dull, flaky skin that The Magic Pads whipped into shape like a champ. I think I know which pad-based peel they remind you of, @stef , because I had the same thought. I’m so happy I got to test this product– I’m now a fan and will order again for sure!
