Triple Action Pads, Alcohol Free

This is a review for the red Stridex pads (the ones pictured in the above photo - mine doesn’t say “triple” anything on the package). I weirdly started suffering from bad breakouts on my chin and upper back, so I bought some Oxy pads which were so drying and heavily scented, and loaded with alcohol (why?). I wasn’t noticing any significant clearing of my acne and I started reading more about salicylic acid and learned that the Stridex red pads are the way to go because... something about the pH, I think the fact that they don’t contain any alcohol, keeps the salicylic acid effective. I’ve found these are much gentler than Oxy and while still a bit drying, not irritating. I am finally starting to notice if you were blemishes that tend to heal faster than they did before. One tub of this is going to last me ages because I only use one pad per day. It easily covers my nose and chin, and entire upper back.

Honestly just bought this at my local dollar general store for less than $4.00 so worth trying. I currently have scabs from previous cystic acne and some pimples all over my face. I used one pad, it did sting a small amount but that i expected as my face hates anything medicated. The aloe made my skin super soft and less red including my scabs so bonus there and so far no pimples. I can often times get them within hours of applying anything to my face. Fingers crossed these continue to work full time.

These are great if you want a toner with SA and non-comedogic ingredients to prep your skin post wash. However, if you have sensitive skin, or use another acne topical (I use a BP gel)-- the 2% SA may be a little too harsh. I switched to the green box with 0.5% and it works better for my skin. But if this is your main acne prep, it should be great for you! Highly recommend these wipes! Also, these do not contain alcohol. It states it clearly on the box-- which is why they work well without killing your skin.
