You can buy them in jars or in packets. I prefer the packets because it seems cleaner and I can take it with me when I travel.

You have to check the description carefully - they still make both. The version I ordered with the 5 bonus peels contained individually packages, which I strongly prefer to the jar because it's much easier to travel with and no risk of the pads drying out. Look for "packettes" in the description.

This set of 30 daily peel original formula with 5 bonus extra strength is a set of 35 total two step treatments in individual foil packets. Each packet has the step 1 pad separated from the step 2 pad. The pads are also sold in jars but that is another set.

I would say use it for 5-7 days and then give it a rest for the same amount of days and use the product again. If you have decent skin, you may be able to do 5 days in a row each month.

answer 6
I wouldn't recommend daily use (even though it says you can) since there are acids in this such as glycolic acid which makes your skin sensitive to the sun and could also be over drying. But it is all personal preference. I prefer to use these as a peel and use only once or twice a week. I cut mine in half too to save money. But remember its all kind of trial and error what works best for your skin. What works for one may not work for some.

Treatment or part of daily routine?

You can use it either way. I think I notice the best results when I use it the entire box daily (or every other day) for a full month (or two). But I tend to get a bit of dry and sensitive skin in the winter, so after my first box, I used it only occasionally--a few days in a row--and got very similar results. (It might have only maintaining the results I already had, though!)

You can--but it may sting a little more when you use the peel. I try to use toner in the morning instead, and you really shouldn't need to use toner (with alcohol in it, at least) before the use of this product. I don't think you'll get much benefit from it, since these towelettes will take the toner right off your skin anyway. :)

I wouldn't recommend a toner before the peel because the peel is already going to do the toner's job. If you tone and then use the peel then your skin may start to become sensitive.

I normally do use toner before, cause it can at least clean up my face before the peel. Most spa will clean your face, squeeze out all the blk heads before they do any peel.

You don't have to use the toner as the peel will strip it anyways. The day you use the peel you can skip any scrub, exfoliating mask or toner and just clean your face, apply peel and your skin will be ready to drink-in your favorite serum and/or moisturizer.

I would say so. I noticed a difference in my skin after the first use. I bought the 14 day trial which also has a serum, and after that I noticed a huge difference in my skin, and I bought the 30-day box.
The immediate difference is just a small dose of the difference you will see after continued use. :)

I know people always say moisturize but I have found with this product that it does moisturize my face and hydrate my face after using a face wash that causes my face to get tight and a little dry. So I use no moisturizer at night time. I let the peel do it's thing.
I recommend using this at night time after you've washed makeup off and are getting ready for bed. No sense in putting anything on after. You don't want to pile product on top of product.

Question
Did anyone ditch other products in their routine after using this?
My daily morning routine is: gentle face wash, toner, serums for face/around eyes and then I moisturize. Then at night, I wash my face and apply my eye serum/creams as well as sometimes will apply a night cream/moisturizer. As you can tell, I am pretty dedicated (ha) and I am wondering when I start using these will I eliminate any steps or should I do it at night? Trying not to mix more than I do...

I don't really ditch anything completely out of my routine. I use these only at night since that's when your skin and body repair itself. At night i use a cream cleanser followed by a gentle toner, eye cream, serum and moisturizer. That's my normal routine. I use these peels after my cleanser and since they exfoliate i skip my toner on the nights i use these but then go back to my toner on days i don't. And i only use these once or twice a week depending. To save money i also cut them in half and whats left i put in a ziploc bag.

I have a set routine also. The only thing that I ditched was using my retinol, which I usually put on at night. Also, I ditched the retinol because I was only using it to stop me from getting breakouts and to take away my dark spots. These pads do that for me. Other than that, I still do my wash, clarisonic, and moisture.

I've been using them there and while I noticed better results on the forehead, cheeks, and chin, the product has not had any adverse effects on this area. The second pad in each pack is nice and soothing. I feel like the product has caused overall smoothing.
