I'm African American and never expected this to work mostly because sometimes my skin reacts differently to the popular/common remedies that may work for my fairer sisters =), but I gave it a try after reading a review. I've suffered Acne since I was a teenager now I'm 28 and still fighting it. This stuff is good if you have combination to dry skin. It really exfoliates the skin while it treats the pimples. Give it a try....you've got nothing to lose unless of course if you're allergic to Salicylic acid.
USE SUNSCREEN.

I hardly ever get acne, but when I do I apply one of the wipes. They seem to work over time, but they will dry my skin out if I use them for the recommended number of daily applications. I try to only use them once or twice a day, but they just dry my skin out so fast and then I have to wait for my dry cracked skin to heal in order to see if it worked.

    Comments about Stridex Daily Care Acne Pads with Salicylic Acid, Maximum Strength, 90 ea:

    I use this product once a day, as a part of my night time skin care regimen. I work in the beauty world and got sick of buying expensive brand name things. I knew I wanted something with out benzoyl peroxide because I wanted to stop destroying my sheets and towels. I even went to the dermatologist and he wanted to prescribe more BP products... yuck. Over it. SO.... I knew, having used many other expensive acne treatment lines, that I wanted to switch to a 2% salicylic acid product.
    I AM SO IMPRESSED WITH THIS PRODUCT. I find it equally effective as say, a Murad acne serum, only lighter in texture and more affordable. It's alcohol free so I don't feel like my skin is drying out. The pads are nice and big and super soft. I read a few other reviews and people who complained about dryness are either using incorrectly or maybe not following with a balanced regimen after use. I also read that people said it left a "film" which they washed off, also incorrect use because the medication needs to stay on the skin to be effective. If you have sensitive skin or are prone to dryness you need to follow up with a sufficient moisturizer. Salacylic acid will make you sun sensitive so you need to use sunscreen during the day!!!

    After my first jar of these pads were gone I went to a drugstore that didn't carry this brand. In a moment of panic I purchased a different "otc" brand and thought, "how different could it be?" Yuck... they were so different. They were filled with alcohol that I could smell, the fragrance they used to cover the alcohol smell was super gross and the pad was like sandpaper. I IMMEDIATELY thought, "I NEED TO GO BACK TO THE STRIDEX ASAP!" So here I am, ordering two jars of Stridex right now so I can throw the other junk out.
    I cannot recommend this product enough!

    I have very oily skin and the oxy equivalent did a better, longer lasting job than this. This smells great though, but that is not why I buy acne medicine.

      To prepare the hand/skin affected area to apply Dermarest Medicated Skin treatment for Psoriasis. Also it's a good pad for face/skin issues such as Rosecia. This has a significant active ingredient and along with the Dermarest together we use it to control patches of Psoriasis outbreaks on hands and fingers.

      Yes, your skin will be dry

      Comments about Stridex Daily Care Acne Pads with Salicylic Acid, Maximum Strength, 90 ea:

      I'm not sure why people are expecting amazingly hydrated skin after using Stridex' MAXIMUM pads but I guess people want the best of both worlds. Of course your skin will be dry, it's 2% salicylic acid with a whole bunch of chemicals. Now once you get over that you'll realize that this is most likely the best over the counter pad product you can get for acne (especially adult acne like me).

      And yes, I've tried ALL OF THEM. Neutrogena, Oxy, Clearasil, etc. None of them work as effectively as Stridex.

      This is a very important part of my nightly routine, if I skip it, I can expect pimples.

        Comments about Stridex Daily Care Acne Pads with Salicylic Acid, Maximum Strength, 90 ea:

        I've finished a tub of this and am now on my second one. I use it only at night as it would be too drying if used twice a day for me. This helps heal acne quickly and has cleared up my skin a bit. I still get cystic acne but not like before. The pads are gentle but you can still feel it exfoliate your skin. I use it after skin cleansing. There is a lot of the medicated liquid left over so I use a cotton pad to soak it up and not waste it after I finished off the 90 pads.

                This product is cheap, easy to use, and very effective. I've used expensive salicylic acid products before, and this does just as well! I thought it would be too drying for my sensitive skin, but it isn't too harsh. I clean my face, then use this, then moisturize after my face is dry. It definitely helps keep my pores clean. I use it on my face and back 4-5 times a week.
