Essential Care Triple Action Pads contain menthol, and as such are too irritating for all skin types. Plus, the detergent cleansing agents are not what you want to leave on skin.

Claims

Essential Care Pads contain a stronger acne-fighter than most “regular” strength pads, plus they are the only medicated pads to contain essential vitamins A, E and C for clear, healthy skin. Salicylic acid penetrates pores to help eliminate and prevent breakouts, while essential vitamins soothe and nourish skin. Alcohol Free!

Brand Overview

Stridex At-A-Glance

Stridex has long been a staple of the anti-acne section of drugstore skincare aisles, offering a small but well-known range of products designed to treat and prevent breakouts. The star ingredient in most of its offerings is salicylic acid, the gold standard when it comes to treating blemishes, and all its products are alcohol-free. Unfortunately most contain other ingredients (such as menthol and fragrance) that could lead to skin irritation, which can worsen breakouts.
