[Review] common labs - Mild Peeling Finger Pad

Hello everyone! :)

Instead of sharing sheet mask review, I am going to grab your attention to this Mild Peeling Finger Pad by common labs.

Previously, I have done a sheet mask review on common lab's Ggultamin B Real Jel Mask + First Impression (with blue packaging). If you missed that, don't worry. (link right here) :D

Honestly, I was really into this Mild Peeling Finger Pad when I first exposed to it through the Ggultamin B Real Jel Mask. That's why I was super hyped up on getting this product.

Do read on until the end of the post as I share with you my personal thoughts on this product. ;)

Review; common labs' Mild Peeling Finger Pad

Once you opened the packet, you will see the peeling pad folded in half (as above), moistly soaked with exfoliating essence.

It has this "lab-kind-of" fragrance embedded. Imagining you're in a skincare lab now (heh).

I mentioned before in my sheet mask review that I really can't tell which side is the front or back of the finger pad. Even now. There isn't an official statement on the identification (urgh).

Anyway. By touching the surface of the sides, you definitely can tell which is the embossing side (rougher side for exfoliation) and the smooth side (to clean and smoothen up).

The Finger Pad is made of thick cotton, and I would say a bit hard in terms of texture. Especially the border of the Finger Pad.


After cleansing, slip your fingers into the sleeve of the pad and use gentle circular motions to wipe your face, neck and chest, once or twice daily after cleansing.

Here's my result after using the Mild Peeling Finger Pad.

There isn't much difference just by looking at it. However, there are signs of wear-and-tear on both sides of the Finger Pad. It does collect dust on it, but it's too small to be captured by my phone camera (>.<''').

As I am writing this, I have just finished all 7 pieces of them. I didn't use it continuously in 7 days, but on and off throughout 3 weeks time.

Perhaps could it be the reason why I couldn't notice significant difference after using this product? I don't know. :/

I rather use this finger pad on alternative days because I felt its cotton texture is rather rough on the skin... which is good as it is meant for exfoliation, but I thought it might be too much for my skin to bear as daily skincare routine. I guess it is really depends on individuals.

What I like about this Finger Pad is that it is fully packed with chemical exfoliant ingredients (both AHA & BHA) and wound-healing ingredients.

Bear in mind, if you have sensitive skin, do extra careful and watchful while testing this Finger Pad.

I bought this product from Althea for RM29. (currently not available :'()


Rating: 2.5/5

Recommend: Recommend for travel-friendly exfoliating finger pads.

Repurchase: Perhaps no, as I am going to try on Corsx (very soon)!

For your reference.

  1. The only cleansing pad I’ve tried is from COSRX. It’s nice to know there are other brands coming out with their own. Depends on your skin condition but acidic toner is best used 2-3 times or every other day.
