  • 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

  • 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.

Great for reducing pores

Posted by BeautyJunkie on Jul 23, 2017 | Verified Purchase

TLDR: This has helped me minimize my porish appearance, following Fifty Snail's guide. My Skin Type: Dehydrated, reactive, sensitive and prone to dryness. Why I purchased it: This BHA is a product that's part of Fifty Snail's guide to reducing a porish appearance. I got this brand because it was alcohol free and when I tried it out it felt fine on my skin. What I love about it: Does not dry my skin out and it has helped with Fifty's routine. I also cut the pad in half since it was more than enough for my face, and this has helped the Stridex last longer. How I use it: I recommend following Fifty Snail's Pore Guide for detailed instructions. I use this once a week, and it's the first step before applying my charcoal max 20 minutes later and then cleansing it off with my Banila Purity and Micellar Water. Verdict: This is a good product that hasn't been irritating to my skin at all and I think it should suit any fellow skin twin looking for a good BHA. I have also noticed results following Fifty's method, so it was definitely a good purchase and well worth the price.

Thanks for your feedback!

I have sensitive skin so I was quite skeptical before trying out this product. I put the pad on my affected area for 10 mins after washing my face and the next morning, the acne was dried out and gone. This is so effective and amazing!

Thanks for your feedback!

My second purchase

My second purchase. I tend to have breakouts easily. Apply this before sleep time, usually, I leave it on about 2-3 minutes for it to become effective.

Thanks for your feedback!
