Lately I have been obsessed with the "Yes To" line and have been trying out a bunch of different items from there line. They can be kinda expensive for a drug store brand but I got luckily and found this item at Ross for 2.99, which is a steal! Usually these pads go for around 8.00. I don't really have horrible acne and have never really used acne pads before but I must say, I really like this product! I used it on my hair line and my chin(My typically acne prone zones) and the few pimples and pumps I had looked almost completely gone. The pads defiantly diminished the redness and size of my acne. Surprisingly this product doesn't smell anything like tomatoes,in fact it smells extremely pleasant. Defiantly the best smelling product from this line that I have tried.
Overall I really like this product and I would defiantly recommend picking it up at your local Ross store.

Review courtesy of my boyfriend:
Yes To Tomatoes Deep Cleansing Facial Pads are 98% natural, oil and paraben free facial wipes meant to cleanse the face from oil and prevent blemishes and break outs. These cleansing pads contain salicyic acid and lycopene - an anti-oxidant that's gentle on your face, but powerful enough to block pre-clogging impurities. Yes To products are made in the USA or Israel, they're cruelty free and have a PETA2 endorsement. I purchased my 50 pack of pads from Priceline in Blacktown Westpoint for $12.99, they retail for $8 in the USA.
Packaging is a white plastic recyclable jar with a screw-on lid. It's about 6 inches in diameter and depth so it's small enough to hold in your hand while you cleanse, if you so wish. It's best to store it upside down to keep pads moistened otherwise all the cleanser falls to the bottom of the jar. This generally causes one pad to stick to the lid of the jar, which is perfect for you to use. It even seems to have extra cleanser on it meaning it's very possible to do your whole face with one pad. The label on the jar contains directions for use, a full list of ingredients and a description of the more beneficial ingredients. The main logo for Yes To Tomatoes Deep Cleansing Facial Pads has a white tomato on red background, as well as two slices of tomatoes above the brand name.
The pad itself is around 4 inches in diameter. This is a good size because you can easily be swabbing your face with it and not have the pad dragging on other parts of the face. It's very thin which I find a little weird for cleaning my face with, yet the cleanser seems to sink into both sides of the pad with good consistency meaning one pad can go a long way, even with a big face like mine I have enough spare to do behind my ears, my neck and jaw-line and hairline. With how thin the pads are I can sometimes find it difficult to peel only one out of the jar, but this is often solved by the fact that as mentioned due to storing the jar upside down I typically have a single pad ready for use in the top of the lid. I wouldn't really say these smell overly of tomatoes, but it definitely doesn't leave a bad smell on my face and I feel fresher having done so after I'm done wiping. It almost reminds me specifically of baby powder, and Mary agrees.
I would recommend Yes To Tomatoes Deep Cleansing Facial Pads to anyone with an overly oily face like mine. It has helped with controlling my acne and leaves my face feeling fresh and clean after use, even if I don't use it daily or twice-daily as the girlfriend would rather me do. If you can pick these up for RRP (or cheaper!) definitely do so, it will not be a purchase you regret making. I would rate Yes To Tomatoes Deep Cleansing Facial Pads a 7/10.

I do not have terrible acne, just acne-prone skin with a few blemishes. I also have a very oily T-zone with Combo/Oily cheeks and chin. These are a blessing. I use them as a slight exfoliator AFTER a hot shower. The Lycopene in them (the tomato-derived ingredient) is awesome. It toned down redness and size overnight! At about $8 for 50 pads, they are a great deal. I will repurchase. <3

The first thing about this product is that the container is only half filled with the pads so you do not get as much product as you expect. The second thing is that pads were very rough and scratchy on my skin, it was too uncomfortable i almost did not want to finish the product. Finally I did not see any improvement in oil or in the acne. Do NOT recommend.
