Staple in my skincare routine. Doesn't sting or burn my super sensitive skin. Tones down my redness and evens out my texture. I use these after washing my face with a rinse off cleanser and they leave my super oily skin comfortably matte. Prevents white heads from building up throughout the day and night. Did I mention it's only $3 and some change?

I used these for a long time, they helped maintain my oily skin a little bit because they are drying (a bit too drying, it'd make my face itch sometimes) and they kept my acne under control. However, my face started to break out very bad, so I switched to Cliniques 3-Step System instead. I stopped using them and my large blemishes cleared up. Then, one day I got a large blemish and decided to try a stridex pad to make it go down...but, the next day I had broken out again. Then, looking back, I don't think they ever helped my skin, I think they cleared up one spot and created another. These may work for people with less sensitive skin that can take a lot of benzoyl peroxide/salicylic acid, but I don't think mine could. I won't use them ever again, because they seemed to be the cause of the problem I thought they were solving. I'd give them a try though if you don't have sensitive skin, it may be worth it.

I purchased this from iHerb after reading a review online, and thinking it was worth a go as they seemed to be good value. I am so glad that I did, it has changed the texture of my skin in just 5 weeks of almost daily use and I've just reordered. Acne outbreaks have reduced, not gone, but they seem to come to a head quickly and settle quickly without as much post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.Personally I do find them VERY drying, even without alcohol in the formula, but I follow with a good quality moisturiser quickly afterwards so its not the end of the world. Well packaged, don't dry out, not scratchy or uncomfortable and well-saturated with the formula. Fab product

I like using this when I have a breakout. It helps to keep my pores clear and skin exfoliated. Because it doesn't have alcohol it doesn't dry out my skin. You can't beat the price!

I love these! I have super sensitive skin and they don't irritate me at all. I only use them a couple times a week though, alternating them with lactic acid and retinol. But my skin is always super smooth the morning after I use them. Also they are hella cheap.

I started using these a couple of years ago, after reading an article about salicylic acid. They were a bit harsh- feeling but cheap and cheerful, and initially I raved about them to any hapless boob who'd stay still to listen, but I found the benefits were short-lived and repeated use (only 2-3 times a week) was making my skin dry and giving me little breakouts and rashes on my very driest bits. I'm now using the Bravura London salicylic acid which is ace, a similar price and much nicer to use. These are potentially worth a shot but if your skin's remotely sensitive, I wouldn't recommend them. If you do use them, cut the pads in half, there's easily enough to half a pad to swipe your face and décolletage. The packaging is fugly but does an excellent job of keeping the pads moist, I've just binned the few I had left and they were good as new despite being a couple of years old.

I have gone through SO MANY boxes. I use the maximum strength. Full disclosure: my skin is oily, resilient, acne-prone, and needs constant chemical exfoliation - so the Stridex pads are actually too easy on my facial skin. When I first started using them, they helped keep my skin clear, but now I pull out the big guns for my face. I use these all over my body, especially my neck, chest, back and bikini zone/inner thigh area to keep my skin soft and clear (and in the case of the bikini zone, ingrown free...). They also work well on the mild KP on the back of my thighs (do the skin issues ever end?). Will forever keep them around, especially since I would rip through so many more expensive products very quickly if I didn't have these handy cheap-o pads. Tip: each and every box I have purchased has a coupon for 55 cents off your next purchase on one of the flaps. Sidenote, wow, keyboards don't have cents symbols anymore??!!

I stumbled upon this product while browsing Reddit skincare forum where everybody (well, almost everybody) is raving about it however, I think my skin is too sensitive for this product. My skin have tiny tiny break out all over my face and the skin of my eyes. They were not acne or cystic acne, only small bumps, probably from an allergic dermatitis. I tried to use it less often, but as soon as I used it again, it came back. I'm trying to use it on the thick skin of my arms to treat keratosis pilaris, I'll update if I have any results.

This kind of dries my skin out but has kept my acne at bay and is inexpensive.

I have been repurchasing these for some time now, so I figured it was time to write a review. They really work. I'm prone to acne on my chin and jawline. Using these nightly dramatically lessens the amount and severity of breakouts. They're not a miracle product but they are very effective.I only use them on the lower half of my face, and I can say they haven't been drying or irritating for me at all. And my skin is pretty sensitive. The pads are saturated in solution - they don't dry out by the time you're nearing the end of the box.I have also tried the comparable Paula's Choice BHA product - didn't like it as much as these. Hated the packaging, hated having to buy separate cotton rounds to apply. Plus the price is insane compared to these, not to mention having to order online.The real tricks to these, I think - use them consistently. And after you swipe it on, let the solution dry on your face for at least a minute or two before you apply moisturizer. This is really key to making the product effective. Overall, these are definitely worth a shot. Can't beat the price and easy availability!
