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 …Read more

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! …Read more

I used to use this on my face, but it is way too drying. I hate that this contains menthol, it’s completely useless and just causes dryness and irritation. I would love to be able to use this on my face, but I still repurchase this regularly for other things.

I like how convenient the pads are, and there is a ton of liquid in the container so the pads are totally saturated and there …

Gosh I'm having a teenager retro moment! Bc I remember using this garbage for my oily acne prone skin when I was young & these salicyclic acid cleansing pads were horrible Bc of the high amount of alcohol in them along with the irritating fragrance & menthol! It burned my skin & made my face red !

These pads have fast become a staple because as someone who has super finicky, sensitive, picky skin prone to period acne and blackheads on nose, this does a magnificent job of managing that. Fast too. Did I mention it cost $4.00 on Walmart for a HUGE (SUPER SIZE ME SIZE TUB), that lasts anywhere from 2-5 months depending on usage? Oh and it is fabulous for ingrown thigh hairs. Ridiculously so …Read more

Update Dec 2018: I tried this all over my face for a 2 nights. It dried out my skin visibly (white scaly patches). I'm going to use the rest of this for my back post gym, where the skin is less sensitive. My face is not especially senstive, but I think the menthol in this stuff might be what makes it so drying. I have used 2% BHA from other lines, daily and routinely, in the past with waaay …Read more

Staple in my arsenal. This is my secret weapon for acne because unfortunately being in your 30s and breaking out is still a thing. This stuff works, EXTREMELY well might I add. I use it once a day at night (or every other evening depending on how close to my period I am).Treats breakouts quickly, and helps keep my skin smooth and new acne from forming. It only cost me a few bucks, and every …Read more

A part of my everyday routine to keep my pores clean. I like to use it along with 10% benzoyl peroxide if I have a couple of blemishes.

I’ve rebought these 6-7x over now.

This stuff destroyed my big painful breakouts in days. I wipe my skin down after cleansing and wait 20 min to moisturize. It does cause the acne to get flakey and if I don’t moisturize quickly I get really dry in the forehead area and look ancient. But for the price and power of this stuff I’ll rebuy for a good acne buster.

Tip- add …
