Prevents - Used regularly, Stridex pads help prevent breakouts before they start.


  • For the treatment of acne
  • Reduces the number of acne pimples and blackheads and allows skin to heal
  • Helps prevent new acne pimples from forming

Suggested Use

  • Cleanse the skin thoroughly before applying medication
  • Use the pad to wipe the entire effected area one to three times daily
  • Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor
  • If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day
  • Do not leave pad on skin for an extended period of time
  • Keep away from eyes, lips and other mucous membranes


For external use only.

Allergen alert: do not use this product if you have a known allergy to salicylic acid.

When using this product using other acne medications at the same time or immediately following use of this product may increase dryness or irritation of the skin. If this occurs, only one medication should be used unless directed by a doctor.

Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.

Great as a toner but not so much as an exfoliant

Posted by 5438579266994434231 on Dec 03, 2016

I have dry skin with clogged pores. My skin is not sensitive at all. I use this product as a toner after cleansing and before moisturizing with coconut oil and putting on sunscreen. Be sure to let it dry completely before applying another product. Although it lessens the appearance of day to day clogs, it does not leave your skin baby soft and super clear like an AHA does (I use Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment 10% AHA (Glycolic Acid) for that). I would highly recommend this product for people with sensitive skin and clogged pores but for people with tougher skin like mine you'll still need to use an AHA product weekly to rid yourself off all your black and white heads.

Great for body acne

Posted by 5055227956746354810 on Nov 30, 2016

While the pads seem a little bit too strong for the face (because of their menthol), these are PERFECT for keeping body acne away. One swipe after a shower and my arms and back have never been smoother.
