Cleans - Stridex pads unclog pores and dissolve deep-down oil. They even remove what cleansers and soaps leave behind.

Treats - Stridex clears up existing pimples and helps eliminate blackheads with salicylic acid, a proven acne medication.

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

  • 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.

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

When using this product using other topical 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.

I've read a lot of good comments about this, and this really does work !!!! For the first time use, I was wondering how magical it would be, but now it's been a week and I can see this really works for acne :) I will def buy this again!

Amazing stuff!

I've heard nothing but raving reviews from our friends across the pond where Stridex is a lot more readily available. The difference is noticeable in the first week and I use it on my face and sometimes for avoiding ingrown hair after removal. Note that I have very oily skin but this is really drying to make sure to use moisturiser after letting your skin soak it up.

easy to use and effective - adult acne

These are great for staying on top of problem areas. My partner gets pimples on his back but using these a few times a week makes a huge difference. With regular use he'll have one or two small spots, instead of half a dozen plus big sore ones.

Smells a little strong...

Posted by Anairda on Aug 06, 2016

As soon as I opened the cap it smelled medicinal but not in a bad way, I cant quite explain it but it isnt bad. It refreshes my skin but doesnt leave it tight feeling. Dont know if it does anything for my acne but will update in a few weeks! So far so good!
