Sensitive Skin Triple Action Pads are advertised as being alcohol-free, and that’s great. However, although these pads do not contain alcohol, they are still terrible for sensitive skin because they contain menthol and an essentially ineffective amount of salicylic acid.

Sensitive Skin Pad’s formula contains skin soothers, including aloe, to clean your skin gently. The pads are recommended for cases of mild to moderate acne on skin that is dry or easily irritated. Work’s to treat and help prevent pimples. Alcohol Free!

Active: Salicylic Acid (0.5%), Other: Aloe Barbadensis Gel, Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Ammonium Xylenesulfonate, Citric Acid, DMDM Hydantoin, Fragrance, Witch Hazel Extract, Menthol, PPG-5-Ceteth-20, Purified Water, Simethicone, Sodium Borate, Tetrasodium EDTA,

Long a drugstore staple in the anti-acne section of skin-care products, Stridex, like so many lines aimed at blemish-prone skin, has yet to offer an effective range of products. None of the options with salicylic acid are advisable due to the presence of needless irritants, and the cleansers share the same problem. The only bright spot is that Stridex offers two benzoyl peroxide products. They both include 2.5% as an active ingredient, an amount many will find successful, and these are effective, irritant-free, and affordable. Otherwise, this line is seemingly convinced that the path to clear skin involves lots of menthol. If menthol were an anti-acne ally, this line would be a slam-dunk—but it isn't. There isn't a shred of research showing menthol has any benefit for skin, for blemishes or for any skin type. Using these products with their injurious irritants will only hinder skin's healing process and worsen the inflammation seen in most cases of acne.
