i have struggled with acne, particularly that tiny "under-the-skin" looking acne, for many years and have never been able to find anything that improved my skin. after hearing about stridex, i read so many success stories and rave reviews that i was expecting some kind of miracle product that would clear my skin up for good. i purged for a few weeks while using stridex once a day, and then my face seemed to settle down a bit. it was no miracle recovery like i'd read about, but my skin DID look better. using stridex has had virtually no effect on the stubborn under-the-skin acne that i thought would be helped by BHA, but it has definitely helped me manage surface breakouts. my breakouts don't look as bad, and they heal faster. after a couple months i started using stridex in conjunction with an AHA, and that has helped as well, but there is still little improvement underneath my skin. this product is pretty cheap, and the little swipes are so saturated with product that you could double how long it lasts by cutting each swipe in half--half a swipe is plenty for your whole face. it makes my skin feel super dry after applying but i try to let it sit for at least 20 minutes before moisturizing. at like $3.50 a box, i'd say it's definitely worth it to try this stuff if you have problem skin.

I was looking for facial wipes that would give me that clean feeling and help me with a few flesh colored bumps on my forehead that are seemingly impossible to keep away. These wipes have helped all around. I like that they are alcohol free as well. I've never had any redness or irritation using these. I already have dry skin and these definitely make my skin drier, but I just follow up with a moisturizer and that takes care of that issue. They're great to have on hand and I'll purchase again when I need to.

This has been working good for my 13yr old son. He has a ton of blackheads, no actual pimples. Large and very deep blackheads. Regular acne cleasers with salicylic acid were not helping at all and his normally dry skin was starting to get a little shiny. I bought him these pads paired with Clean & Clear blackhead eraser scrub. Together they have really helped clear his clogged pores. His whole nose was covered some on his cheeks and forehead too. Now, a month later, there are about 3 left on his nose and the ones on his cheeks and forehead have really cleared up a lot.

I have been using these everyday for years and years. I use the original kind, not the one for sensitive skin. I found the sensitive skin one to not be as effective in ridding oil. I have moderately oily skin, sometimes overly oily. The face pads got rid of the oil, and prevented my skin from getting oily throughout the day. They did not make me break out. I do still get the occasional pimple, but this drys them out, and makes them go away quicker. They even dried up a severe rash, when no other product or rash cream would work. They don't really dry out my skin. But they are meant to dry your skin out a little so it can erase oil. So if you have oily skin it will help. It worked well at cleansing my skin of dirt and debris. The smell is not overwhelming. But if you get it too close to your mouth it will give you a bad taste. The price is very affordable for the amount of pads you get. I use them everyday, and they last me a few months.

I have repurchased these pads multiple times. However to be clear, these did not work for my face. Very irritating for me (stinging, itchiness, redness) However I have used these to keep my feet and elbows smooth as well as on my underarms when dealing with ingrown hairs. Occasionally I have applied them to breakouts on my back and chest.They do come in handy and the supply seemed to last quite a long time. Also side note, it seems there has always been a coupon on the box to cut off and the expiration date is enough in advance so I know by the time I need another box it will still be of use. Updated 6/2015I have found for me the ideal way to use these on my face is to apply generously, then only leave on for 5-10 minutes. I follow by rinsing off with water. I seem to get the benefits without the irritation, hope that helps someone! 9/2015- Even better results when applied to damp skin.

For reference, my skin: I was on accutane several years ago for persistent cystic acne on my cheeks and extremely oily skin. Now, it is oily, although less so, and I am very prone to clogged pores.This works amazingly for me. I use it at night after washing, wait 20 min, then apply moisturizer. My pores have been far less congested, my skin overall appears smoother and brighter. I have had no irritation from this product. It took a few weeks to see a difference. Very helpful in helping me maintain clear skin.

Before I used this product, I actually thought I was allergic to salicylic acid. Everything else I used that contained the ingredient broke me out and irritated me. It was merely on a whim that I tried this, after a friend with very sensitive skin recommended it, and I was blown away. I couldn't believe my skin was able to tolerate it. These pads have helped my skin tremendously, making it so smooth and clear. It has evened out my texture, reduced redness, and feels very comfortable going on. I swipe one of these over my face nightly after cleansing, and after about a minute of dry-time, I finish up with Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture. This keeps my skin soft and comfortable, with absolutely zero irritation. My only small complaints are that it can feel a bit sticky (I guess because it's alcohol-free, so the trade-off is fine with me--I'd rather feel a bit sticky than have alcohol wreak havoc on my skin--but for this reason I can't put it on under makeup and so I can only use it at night) and that the pads contain fragrance and menthol. Very unpleasant. The fragrance isn't even perceptible at all, so I don't know why they even bother with it; and most consumers these days are savvy enough to know that menthol is nothing more than a cheap parlor trick and has nothing to do with the product "working." I really think that Stridex would do well to eliminate these ingredients from the formulation. Regardless, these pads are still the best BHA product I've ever found, and I will continue to purchase. Highly recommend for sensitive skin!

This is overall a really great product.The product comes in a jar with soaked thin cotton pads.The jar of 90 pads cost around 6 dollars. I'm in college so this is an OK price. I'm still saving up on buying PC BHA 2% solution.I apply this before bed and let it sit for about 20-30 min. This last step is very important. It needs time to work. After the waiting time I proceed as normal with my procedure. I have dry skin so at winter this did dry my skin but I still kept using it and dealt with the dryness by putting on more moisturizer and putting this on every other day. I wish it was more effective with my sebaceous filaments. It did clear up my annoying pimples/occasional acne that used to be here and there on my face really well. My face is also nicely exfoliated when I wake up. Especially around the nostril area.Overall rating 4/5Pro: * Really works removing/combating pimples* affordable* exfoliatingCon:*Wish it did a better job removing my sebaceous filaments. *drying in winter but nothing a good moisturizer can't handle.This is a good product for oily skin. Dry skins can use this as well depending on how dry. The trick is not using it twice a day but finding a time span that fits your skin type. Oily skin could use this once a day but dry maybe every other or third.

Bought this because BP wasn't working against my acne anymore... and this made my breakouts worse! This made me get those small little bumps ALL over my forehead and some on my cheeks... and also made me more oily than normal. It could be the menthol because I have sensitive skin...
