Genuinely a great product and also the only tea tree product that made a difference for my skin! At first I was skeptical about toner pads because I thought they felt unnecessary when you could just use regular toner, but when I tried these I understood why people love toner pads so much now. They don't drip toner everywhere and it feels so nice to just put them on the face and let the toner absorb. I've seen people use like 4 pads at once to make a mini sheet mask, but you only really need one if you're worried about going through them too fast. The tea tree in this product actually made a noticeable difference in my skin in terms of reducing oiliness, reducing acne, and actually calming the skin, which I've never experienced from any tea tree products before. These toner pads are probably going to be a permanent addition to my routine.
