This is less than £5 for a pack of 65 pads. I cut mine in half and use only one half for my entire face and neck - they are so soaked in liquid that I find that is enough! Needless to say, they last ages!
Thing is, the pads are very scratchy! What I do is take the half pad and just gently tap it everywhere on my face - DO NOT RUB as they can and will cause irritation and even broken capillaries! They are too harsh to use for exfoliation, imo. I do think if you had body acne (back, chest...) then you could use them to go over those areas with no problems.
I use these just at night, and not every night because I think in the long run they can be drying (I have combo skin with dry-ish cheeks) as they contain alcohol as the second ingredient. The liquid absorbs quickly into the skin, and I then put on a moisturiser.
Used regularly, these have helped reduce the blackheads on my nose noticeably and prevented breakouts (these in rotation with other salicylic acid products!).
Overall I think this is excellent value for money, but be sure to just tap it softly over your face and not rub.

First of all, I like this product. As long as I don't use it on my face. If I were to rate it on the face, it would be as low as possible. But for body acne, it would be a good score. So final score: 3/5. I got this product probably a few years ago. I was over at my friend's house and she had some on her counter and she used them on her face that night, and started raving about it. I used some and enjoyed it, although in my opinion it stung where I had a small cut on my forehead and just in general. I went to the store and they must have been misplaced, because the pricetag was around $10. No way was I going to pay that much for only 90 pads. A month later I went back and did a price scan, they were a little less than $4. Okay, so I got them. Benzoyl peroxide isn't really my friend, I used some and I had severe allergic reactions and had to get medical help and got put on steroids and Benedryl. It has 2% salicylic acid. I started using this on my face. My forehead had never ever had a zit. I really don't even have acne, really. I think the purpose of this was to prevent acne. I used this on my face, and my whole face broke out. Now listen, when users say stuff like, "This caused a rash!" and "This broke me out!" etc. I never believe them. I choose to believe that they were just mistaking this for breaking them out or causing a rash when really it was not to blame. But this? I'm serious when I said it broke my face out. Soon enough my skin got used to it and didn't break out anymore, but I don't use this on my face anymore. I use it on my chest and back to prevent acne. I use it before bed, and sometimes in the morning. It does a pretty good job, better than nothing and I can definately tell a difference between the week where I didn't use it and the week where I did. It helps some, and never broke my back or chest out (I think). The tingle it gives is pretty refreshing. The pad may feel a bit scratchy, but I go slow and have piece of mind that it is exfoliating too. The smell actually smells okay. Maybe it is just because I use the Clearasil Face Wash and have used that for 5+ years, but it smells pleasant. It has a slight medical scent and reminds you of doctor's office hand sanitizer or something. It doesn't dry out my skin, but then again I do not have dry skin. I have repurchased a lot, and have been using it for years. I know that sounds weird to say with my rating, but I can't think of anything better to use for body acne. It is cheap and effective and comes with a lot of pads. It lasts me at least a month.

This product and I really got off on the wrong foot...I originally used these twice a day, everyday. what a big mistake that was. This made my face a mess! I broke out, my skin was peeling and red. It was bad. After letting my face settle down and clear up, I began using these a couple times a week and at night only. These have improved the overall appearance of my skin. I dont have acne, but I do have some small whiteheads on my chin. These pads cleared them up and keeps them at bay. I suggest using this product only a few times a week in the beginning, then if you really need them, begin using them more frequently.

I am 23 and have been having some issues with adult acne ever since I got off the pill. I was desperate to try something, and I didnt want to spend a lot of money, because in the past clinique worked best, but I just cant get that right now. So anyways, I got this, it was a little over $3 dollars for 90 pads, and thats a great buy! I have been using this the past 4 days morning and night, and I already see an improvement! My forehead looks so much more clear than before, and it didnt totally dry my skin out. I will keep buying until I do try something else. :)

I purchase these over and over to use for my face, chest, back and shoulders. They are very inexpensive and do a great job of getting medicine deep into my pores. I notice a clearing of acne within a day of using these. I can use multiple ones on my back during a day and not worry about too much drying or the cost. Really, these are pretty great.

I have ventured away from these before, but always, always come back to them. I am giving these a 5 lippie rating not because they are an HG, as they don't keep my skin perfect. However, they are the only treatment of this kind I have ever found that will keep my skin half decent. I have typical oily teenage skin, and although I don't have terrible acne, I get spots often enough that I am always trying to find good skincare. Anti-acne face washes don't do enough for my skin, and I have never found a spot cream that does anything. This is a pretty good prevention product; I always seem to break out if I forget to use these pads a couple of days in a row, and it's very good for oil prevention and drying up spots too. They are cheap, well packaged and seem to be pretty unique; I have never really found any equivalent product. These are definitely a staple for me.

I have only been using these for about a week. Make sure you're careful when you open the container, as there is a fair amount of liquid in there to keep the pads moist, I'm guessing. I wasn't expecting this and spilled a fair bit on the floor when I first opened up the package.
I was a bit overenthusiastic with them at first and ended up with really dry, peeling skin for a couple of days because of the alcohol in the product. My dry skin cleared right up with some shea butter though. I would recommend using these only once a day or once every other day unless you have super oily skin.
As far as pore clearing potency, I found the pads worked really well. I've been getting whiteheads and clogged pores lately, and these got rid of them. Also, I found that if I rinse my face afterward (even though it tells you not to on the container), they still clear my pores without overdrying. As an alternative, you can use these as a spot treatment by just dabbing the pad on your problem areas without drying out the rest of your face.
It's the first acne product I've found that actually works, although the high alcohol content is a bit annoying since it dries your skin out. Until I find something less drying, I will continue to use these.

Due to stress, I started breaking out all over my forehead and my chin. My Boscia cleanser has always been blah but kept the large pimples at bay, but after my stress rage, I needed to find something-- quick.
I went on a rampage to find those Noxzema pads that I used to use, but this was the only alternative I could find at 3AM. I bought these, and I actually love them more than the Noxzema pads! These, for one, don't reek of alcohol (alcohol, however, is pretty high up in the ingredients list). Also, I haven't had a major breakout since. Bravo. This is great for emergencies, when necessary.
-1 lippie because of the excessive amounts of alcoho. But like I said, only use during an emergency because it WILL get rid of your pimples!

I use this on my neck, chest, and back so I don't have to worry about the dryness, which is a main concern that I have about using it on my face. The exfoliation/cleansing really works and you can see all the dirt come off, even after a shower. Does it go "deep" into pores? I don't know. I also am not sure about how useful the salicylic acid is against my acne. But getting off all that dirt and oil should be helping with the breakouts, albeit very slowly. The only major problem is that this stuff smells very strong of flowers. I'm not exactly sure how they planned to sell this to guys. The scent is very hard to get rid of short of using soap and water. And it leaves a bit of a sticky feeling that also is only removed by soap. But given that this is not being used on my face, I don't mind it. However, I tend to stop using it when I become self conscious about how much I must smell to other people. But it still is something that I'll come back to.

I have been using this product every night before bed for a few months now. I've never noticed any dryness from them, however I do have pretty oily skin. I don't care for the packaging though, I hate having to dig in the container to pull one out, and you cant use on your eyes or it will burn burn burn. I've very pleased with this product and will continue to use.

Love this stuff! Does what it says!

LOVE LOVE LOVE! I've been using these for almost a year. They used to be called daily pore cleansing pads, but Clearasil has recently taken the "daily" part off of the packaging. Good thing, because used everyday, they would totally fry any but the oiliest skin.
I am almost 40, combo skin, and a stone fox. I use these every second or third evening, let dry, and follow with Camellia oil (my most favorite oil of all time, which I buy on eBay). With this method, I get no dry patches. Also, I like that the pad form allows me to use it only on my t-zone where I need it and not all-over like a cleanser would. Sometimes I will cut the pads in half because I just need a little bit. Good for maintaining your skin and not over-saturating with the product if you don't need to.
When I first got it, I went a little overboard and it DID dry me out. .Careful here! My husband loves them too, but he uses them everyday, with no moisturizer on top. Of course, he is much oilier than I. The trick is to figure out your own personal groove with this product and use it to suit your tolerence.
EDIT: I now use Stridex pads. Same thing but more product for less $

These are very good at cleaning they burn a bit but its worth it.

Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I have acne prone combination skin and I am on Indian (as in India the country) origin.
For the most part I didn't think my skin was overly sensitive. It has held up well to different exfoliators.
However, I used Clearasil Ultra Pore Cleansing Pads for two days, since it say it will clear my acne in three days. Well it did certainly clear my pimples but instead left blackish red burnt patches on my skin. I used this product as per instructions and wiped my face with it twice a day. Once at night after washing my face and once in the morning after taking my shower.
I have picture up showing how my chin looks after the second night's application.

Its irritating alcohol sense stinks!!!! I just can not put it anywhere near my face. How could any manufacturer product something like this if it's a skincare product ?!!!Don't they know that the sense of the product really count?!!

I bought this product, looking for something with a lose dose BHA for my skin. I got 60 for 4 bucks, in this little plastic container that I have to dig my fingers around in.
Cons would be the alcohol used, which I think causes the strong smell eeeevery single time I use it. It also makes my drier spots feel tight immediately, but since I use cetaphil as my nightly cleanser - this gets the rest of my makeup off. I can actually see the color on the pad. The surface of these pads is also scratchy, and could be irritating to the skin if you rub the thing against your skin more than once or twice.
Pros -I havent had any bad breakouts since I started using them though. This helped me get rid of my milia. I would buy them again, but I want to try the bha pads that Spectro makes.

To some's disbelief, this product has been out for years. It came out maybe 2 years ago with a different look but with the same advertisment. I love the fact that I can just see the dirt coming off my skin, but since I no longer use this (i use proactiv), it was great using it. Very refreshing:) Especially if you dont feel like water getting all over you.

I originally bought these for my teenage son to keep at school and for travel. But one night I tried one...and fell in love! These babies are great, a simple and fun little scrubbie that makes my skin silky, fresh-smelling and TREATED with sal. acid. Perfect for face, chest, back, and wonderful for traveling too. I remember when Clearasil was a DREADFUL beige (one-color-suited-all...NOT) pimple treatment cream, what an awful smell and useless product! Nice improvement!!! Try these!

ive been using these for a few weeks and so far i really like them.i have very acne prone/combo skin.i found that using them everyday didnt do anything,it actually made things worse b/c it was losing its affectiveness.but when i use them every other day or a few times a week they work really good at preventing new pimples.they can be drying,but not to the point where they give me dry patches..and believe me i get bad dry patches sometimes.these were on sale for 2.50 for 90 pads at walgreens which was cool.when im lazy they work great at washing my face and removing my colorstay makeup...they sometimes sting my eyes though.they have worked on my annoying blackheads as well.overall good product and i will most likely repurchase.
