  • Helps prevent new acne pimples from forming

Suggested Use

  • 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.

If you have acne, be careful to use this product correctly if you want results! This is a very strong concentration of salicylic acid (BHA) and if used alone, it will dry out your skin. No, drying out your skin is not what you want! It may seem like it, but if you overdo it you will irritate your skin and make the problem worse! 1. Ease into use. You never know how your skin will react. Many people will experience sensitivity at first. Your skin may have an adjusting period, and after you get used to it you may very well be able to use this daily. At first though, it may not be a good idea. Try 3 times a week at first. This is a chemical exfoliant, which means this will exfoliate your skin. I would NOT use another exfoliating method such as a scrub or a facial brush while using this product. It will likely cause more irritation. Be careful! 2. Expect some early side effects. You may become red, irritated, or flaky, and you may notice your skin breaking out even MORE at first. This is because there is acne beneath the surface of the skin being caused to come up faster. This is a good thing. Give your skin time to adjust and keep using this product for at least two months before deciding if it absolutely did not work for you. 3. MOISTURIZE! You may think your skin cannot handle a moisturizer. I know, I've been there. I have oily skin and this product made me see flakes for the first time in my life. When you have acne, flaky skin looks even worse under makeup than those red bumps in my opinion. Do some research, be vigilant, and FIND A MOISTURIZER that works for you. More than likely, your skin can handle more products than you think it can as long as you are cleansing and exfoliating properly. CeraVe products are highly recommended, and several oil-free moisturizers exist out there as well. Do not skip moisturizer (or sunscreen, for that matter - sun exposure can also make acne worse!).

This is heavy exfoliator. It works well, but I have oily and sensitive skin together and I have to be carefull to not use the stridex on the sensitive part. Otherwise it is great product.

Thanks for your feedback!
