First Aid Beauty is $34 for 60 pads and Pixi is $22 for 60 pads. Both products contain Glycolic Acid which is great for exfoliation as well as Lactic Acid which is great for hydrating and reducing the appearance of dark spots. First Aid Beauty contains several plant extracts as well as Hyaluronic Acid. While Pixi lacks this, they do have Vitamin E and Witch Hazel (great for toning)! First Aid Beauty is considered a clean brand and this product has an EWG score of 3 (on a scale of 1-10 with 1 being the best). Pixi is not marketed as being a clean brand. I felt that the Pixi pads worked much better at exfoliating. According to the packaging, The Pixi pads have a 20% concentration of glycolic acid, the FAB pads did not state the concentration. When using the Pixi pads, the instructions specifically say to use them at night on your face, neck, and back of hands to help exfoliate the skin without harsh abrasion. I did experience a slight tingling but it subsided after a few seconds. The smell of the Pixi pads was much stronger and smelled slightly like alcohol. I think this is a great alternative to a physical exfoliant and would be great to use in your routine, I personally implemented it every other night and alternated it with a product containing retinol because I have sensitive skin. As for the FAB glycolic pads, I felt as though they did not contain as much product on the actual pad, and they were nearly odorless. After wiping my face with the FAB beauty pad the pad was completely dry, while the Pixi pad had enough product for my face, neck and chest. The FAB pads did not really feel like a ‘treatment’ like the Pixi pads did. I actually preferred the FAB pads for the morning to clean my face before applying my day time routine because they just felt like a wipe.
I had no idea pixi made peel pads! I’m gonna have to check these out
I wasn’t a big fan of the FAB pads. They were quite dry and dried out before I got done using them. My skin didn’t show much of the results that they claimed. Pixi seems to have a much higher concentration of acids so I’ll try those!
