There are two listings for this, so will post on both, but I used to use the Stridex in the red container/box with 2% SA but since I also use a topical BP acne gel, the combo was just too much for my skin.
Decided to try these instead with only 0.5% SA and aloe and witch hazel, so much better. I mostly use this like a toner after washing AM and PM and let my skin dry, then follow with my BP. Works very well, no issues! Compared to all the toners on the market, this is one of the only I could find where the ingredients werent comedogenic, most toners have something in them that my reactive skin just doesnt like. This doesnt bother my skin, and makes it smooth. I also think its helped balance my oil. Highly recommend if you are looking for something to tone thats gentle and non-comedogenic.
These are very saturated, which is great, but if I dont squeeze the pad out a bit before applying, it can take awhile for my skin to dry, so squeezing out excess works when Im in a rush and dont have time to wait for my skin to dry before BP and makeup. Good stuff!!!! Also-- someone mentioned that Stridex has alcohol in them--- no they do not. They specifically state that on the box, which is why they are so great!
