Daily Defense Pads
2.0

5 days ago

I bought these because the drugstore was out of my usual acne pads, the Noxema brand. The Oxy pads are lightly fragranced. I do not like the tacky film that these pads leave on my face. I ended up throwing out the container and repurchasing Noxema pads.

At first my experience with these pads was great - used them day and night with regular cleansing and moisturizing. It seemed like they were the only thing that kept my face completely clear, and they worked for months. UNTIL. Mysteriously the acne started to return. And I had noticed that throughout the day my face was getting shinier and shinier, and I'm sure that anyone who looked at me in the evening could see their reflection in my nose. I got fed up, did some research and realized that I had damaged my acid mantle beyond reckoning. From what I now understand, not only does this cause excess oil production in revolt to the drying effect, it also allows the bacteria in. I'm sure anyone with half a brain would have looked at the ingredients in this and thought that using them twice a day as a chemical exfoliant was not going to turn out well, and they would have been right. So now I'm in the process of repairing my skin barrier, correcting the ph and hydrating my poor, damaged skin. I tossed these pads right in the trash, picked up some La Roche Posay cleanser, Aveeno toner, and La Roche moisturizer, all for sensitive skin (not acne prone). What a difference 2 weeks makes! I'm no longer oily at all and I have no active pimples, just a few dark spots. I'm starting to think that all of the acne I've had in my adulthood has been from damaging that top layer with harsh products....I guess better to realize now than never!

Boy, is this stuff ever the business! I think this was the reason my skin really cleared up for a while. (I started breaking out more when I ran out and couldn’t find it!) I would try to leave it on for a minute at night while I took my shower, then I’d rinse it off. I usually sleep with a fluffy white towel over my pillow because I go to bed with wet hair. Imagine my surprise when I slept in a different bedroom sans towel and woke up to a discolored pillowcase! So be warned that you may not be able to wash 100% of this face wash off! The benzoyl peroxide left behind clearly didn’t irritate or dry my skin and probably helped clear it along with the Differin, salicylic acid products, etc I use after my shower. Despite it ruining one pillowcase thus far, I have repurchased this face wash. The tube has had a redesign, now saying “Oxy 10 Acne Cleanser Maximum Strength,” but the ingredients have not changed.
