Stridex Natural Control-padsI am a three-step girl when it comes to cleansing my face. Makeup Remover. Cleanser. Toner.

For many years, I was not consistent with the toner. In more recent years (as I became more consistent) I realized the difference it makes. It really helps keep your skin healthier-looking and clearer. Don’t skip that toner!

Due to my blemish-prone skin, I always try to use a toner that fights acne and/or dark marks. However, as a “grown woman” many of the formulations are just too harsh for my lived-in skin: too drying, too irritating or both. One day I came across Stridex Natural Control salicylic acid acne medication pads at Harmon’s. And I have been a dedicated fan and user ever since.

Unlike most toners (and toner pads) that have 2% salicylic acid, Stridex Natural Control only contains 1%. Less harsh! It is also alcohol-free. Less irritating! And it contains triple antioxidants (white tea, pomegranate and soy) to promote healthy skin. And you really do notice the difference after consistent use! The formula is very mild yet effective.

Though there is no sting or strong smell, the formula really does help control and diminish breakouts. It takes a little longer to dry (since it is alcohol-free), but let it soak into your skin! I find that I have fewer blemishes and get this: IT FADES DARK MARKS. Yes, it fades old acne marks. Though the container doesn’t specifically say it, I have definitely noticed this additional benefit. Must be the antioxidants and that soy (soy has been proven to fade marks). My spots fade faster and my over-all complexion is brighter if I swipe my face every night with these pads.

And let me tell you about these pads…they are humongous! The size of the triangular container is the size of the pad. Stridex definitely is not skimping on these things. And there is enough solution in the container to outlast the 70(!) pads.

Stridex Natural Control review

Alcohol-free STRIDEX Natural Control salicylic acid 1% acne medication (pads) ingredients:

Active – 1% salicylic acid

Inactive – Betaine, camellia sinensis (white tea) leaf extract, decyl glucoside, fragrance, glycerin, glycine soja (soybean) seed extract, potassium sorbate, punica granatum (pomegranate) extract, purified water, sodium ascorbyl phosphate, sodium citrate, sodium phytate, tocopheryl acetate.

If you have blemish-prone skin and are 30+ you should definitely try these pads. If you don’t have blemishes, but have some uneven skin tone and are losing your “glow,” you should try these pads. And if you are under 30 with sensitive, acne-prone skin, you should also pick these up.

I know you will come back here and thank me later.
