The pad is rougher and tougher than other brands. It gives your skin a good scrubbing but it hurts, maybe because I used to much force. I use it when I am too lazy to wash my face before bed. It makes your skin feel tight. I am not sure if it helps with acne because I don't use it everyday.
I have tried everything for my adult acne. Clearasil, clean and clear, neutrogena. You name it I've probably tried it. I have always liked noxzema even for what little teen acne I had so I decided to try it on my adult acne. Yeah my face decided to betray me when I turned 20. The one with the blue lid really helps. I use a pad every night before I go to bed. After the pad I use aveeno a clear complexion face moisturizer and my face is finally almost clear after battling with acne for almost two years. I am 21 now, almost 22 and my skin is amazing.
I have had acne for most of my life. I have tried EVERYTHING!!....
Murad, Proactiv, Neutrogena Skin ID, you name it, i've most likely have tried it. One day I decided to try Noxema because I saw that my sister was using it and her face looked mostly clear. Who knew one of the cheapest acne products on the market could help clear up my acne.
I use the pads twice a day and my skin has cleared up a lot.
I still get ocassional breakouts but usually only around that time of the month. If you're someone that has tried IT ALL, I definately recommend trying out this product. What do you have to loose? ...$3.99? lol, I think its worth the money.
I love the overall idea of the product. It does deliver in getting dirt and grime off my skin when I don't feel like/too tired to go and wash my face before bed. Also helps with excess oil.
So why only 2 lippies? I'm afraid it may be causing me excess oil as it strips so much oil off your skin, thus pimples. My skin doesn't look that much better. My pores don't seem to be doing any better which in my opinion, a good toner should help with. Yet pores particularly around the nose are the same as before I started using the product.
It does help dry things out, but I feel like this may be contributing to some skin problems so I may use it up but will not repurchase. I have combination, sometimes oily, sometimes acne prone sensitive skin.
These things are amazing! They help get rid of my acne fairly quickly and prevent new pimples from popping up. However, even with my extremely oily skin, I can only use one pad once a day... otherwise it makes my skin flaky! Also, it is very rough and can sting around your eyes and any open blemish or sore. I would not recommend these to someone with sensitive skin at all, but for someone like me, they're great!
i use this in combination with an alpha hydrox lotion and my skin looks incredibly clear! the best it's been in weeks. my skin went through bad breakouts especially on my cheeks and around my mouth. using these two helped heal and fade my acne and scars. i use this morning and night... and sometimes in between if im at home.
its a nice alternative to using my mario badescu spot treatment (pink stuff)
These were the first anti-blemish pads I used, because my mom told me it would be a good idea to have them and use them. I absolutely loved them! (I say loved in the past tense because when I went back to Target to buy them again after I ran out, they weren't there and I ended up with Neutrogena cleansing pads, which work equally as well.)
I saw a huge improvement in my skin and I also ended up ocassionally using them as makeup removers (I know I shouldn't do that.)
They are fantastic! If you're looking for something quick to use before bed that will really make a difference with your skin AND remove your makeup, these are a great bet for you!
Great price, too!
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!!! Works so amazingly at smoothing down bumps on the skin! I have little whiteheads along my jawbone and have used these pads on again off again for a few years now. Within 1 use you notice a difference in the softness and smoothness of your skin. It takes 2 - 5 days max to completely get rid of all of the bumps on my skin! I don't suffer from severe inflamed acne but I recommended these to my friend and her forehead was noticeably super clear!! These pads are very strong and I would not recommend it for super sensitive skin, but overall these pads are my go-to skin care product!
This is the only product that actually combats my acne. That's not to say that it completely keeps it at bay, but it certainly dries up the little ones here and there. The smell is a little tough to bear sometimes, but I'd endure it because it works. Also, the pads actually exfoliate my skin and make it really soft and clean feeling.
I have the picture with the blue lid, so the triple clean anti -blemish pads.I like that it comes with pads already soaked in a good amount of product, some of which is 2% Salicylic Acid. I don't think it helps clear current acne or helps to tighten pores like other toners, but I think it works well clear the pores and clear the face and I think it helps to prevent acne. I use one a day everynight before I go to bed, I usually don't wake up with as many pimples as I used to so I think it helps. Its only about $4 and lasts about 3 months for one a day, as there are 90 pads per tub. It works well in conjunction with my skin care regimen so I think I'll repurchase.
Edit: I decided to added a more sensible toner to my regimen and use this as an alternative nightly acne treatment two nights a week. I notice the days after I use it my skin is less oily, and my acne looks much improved and as if it is finally healing. I won't repurchase immediately, as it will last forever and there are other products I want to try and compare it with.
