These Arcona pads have soothing witch hazel, exfoliating salicyclic acid, antibacterial tea tree leaf oil, and raspberry extract that is supposed to be antimicrobial but that I think is just helpful in making this concoction not smell totally awful. It actually smells fruity and pleasant. I take one pad each evening when I can sense discord brewing in my epidermis and swipe it all over my face, followed by a lightweight moisturizer. These pads are gentle and non-drying and they have definitely helped fend off pimples. $36 for a jar of 45 is not awful (though I do wish they'd give you more for that price).

These clear up any blemishes when I use them at night and they smell really good. They are drying, so I only use them if I get a blemish which is rare but they work better and faster than other products I've use. I like these better than the triad pads because those seem to me my skin oily by the end of the day but they smell better.

I love these pad! Firstly, they smell amazing. Secondly, they do not strip my skin. I love the way they feel. I was using clinique acne solutions toner and was SO DRY after. This feels like it tones and moisturizes at the same time, while evening, calming, and clearing my skin. Fabulous. I am cutting the pads in half to make the product last longer. It's more than enough for my entire face and it makes me feel a little less horrible for spending the money.

Would rather use raspberry or tee trea bar alone. These are only good if your face is ready completely clear because it can make acne/dry spots worse.

Loved the smell of these and the fact that they are more "natural" but they didn't work for me. They dried my skin out, it probably was the alcohol or tea tree oil. I will use the rest of them on the back of my legs and see if they help my KP.

I absolutely love these. They do not leave my face feeling tight like the Stridex pads do. They do not leave my face feeling sticky like the Peter Thomas Roth pads do. With the ARCONA Raspberry Clarifying Pads my face just feels perfectly balanced and happy. I use every morning and today just repurchased. Since I've bought these TWICE now, I thought it was high time I reviewed them. I could not be more pleased with these... oh wait sure I could... if they lowered the price ;)They make my combo-oily skin super happy. I recommend!

Really loved and wanted these pads to work out for me as Arcona products are just amazing quality and so healthy for skin. I have really clog/breakout prone skin so along with now using the Raspberry Bar (not as deep cleaning/enough to keep my skin clear on it's own as I imagined but amazing still as never dries me out), was using the pads day and night following. Even with the natural alcohol contained in this product (not nearly as much as Im sure in cheap drugstore products) I was slight nervous as my skin hates alcohol even being oily prone as I was sadly right as made me skin blotchy/somewhat irritated after using them for a week. As this is my only treatment product in my new routine they just werent cutting it so i exchanged them for the Tabula Rasa pads which don't have alcohol and hopefully will keep me clear. I won't knock these Raspberry Pads as they smell amazing and for anyone whose not sensitive to alcohol don't hesitate to try them!

Unfortuately these are not for my dry skin.I thought they would work well, containing only 1% salycylic acid but there is also witch hazel and tea tree oil and I think that's what made these too drying for me.

UPDATE (08/03/12): Why did I ever stop using these? They're just so effective for completely clearing pores, including blackheads. All you're left with is skin that looks like clear, polished marble. Love them!UPDATE (12/18/10): Just an update to say how I use these nowadays. I use stainless steel scissors ($4 in WalMart's craft aisle) that I purchased just for these. I usually cut about a week's worth at a time and pile right back into the jar to keep them wet. I still use 1/2 at night but now I area treat in the AM using 1/4 pad. Using them this way, a jar will last over 2 mos. I still adore these things. ;)UPDATE (10/12/10): Love these things. I stocked up during skinstore.com's last 20% off code. Don't use them unless you want marble smooth skin with invisible pores. DD who is a skin care minimalist has now also included these in her routine....they are that good. She won't bother with anything unless it's life-changing, lol. Original review: 5-star product on beauty.com (19 reviews) which says alot. I had some leftover drugstore.com dollars which help to justify putting this in my cart, lol. As with the reviewers for the Arcona Triad pads, I cut these in half....even thirds would work. I'm using one at night after cleansing but before any treatments. LOVE these so far. My freakishly sensitive skin seems to be quite happy. 2018 REFORMULATION: Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water, Alcohol Denat., Wine Extract, Salicylic Acid (2%), Totarol, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Fruit Extract, Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Fragrance (Natural), Alcohol (component of Witch Hazel). pH is still 2.97ORIGINAL INGREDIENTS: Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water, Alcohol Denatured (Ethanol), Salicylic Acid (1%), Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Fruit, Extract, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Seed Oil, Totara Extract, Eclipta Prostrata Extract, Melia Azadirachta Leaf Extract, Moringa Pterygosperma Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil. pH is 2.97 continued >>

I'm going to give these a 5 star review for right now as I just started using them. So far so good though! Smaller pores and has some natural acids in it! We will see!
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
