Daily Cleansing Pads
cleansing pads back in the 90's, and while they're no longer
as hot of an item in today's crowded acne market, many
people still turn to them for controlling surface oil, dirt
and bacteria. Oxy's Maximum Daily Cleansing Pads are the
latest iteration, bolstering their usual absorbance with
salicylic acid for promoting exfoliation.
commercials for Oxy Pads were famous for showing how much
gunk was hidden under seemingly clean skin, and if you've
used these products, you've probably noticed the same
yourself. It's no secret that typical cleansers miss a lot
of the sediment that gets trapped down in your pores. Oxy
Pads do a good job of drawing these deep waste deposits out,
potentially stopping your pores from getting clogged. It's
also satisfying to immediately see the results (via the dirt
on your pad). However, the fact remains that for many types
of acne, surface dirt and bacteria ultimately have little to
do with the problem.

Who should try
Oxy Cleansing Pads
Oxy Pads are
effective in their basic function, and while they may not be
the gentlest cleansing pads out there, if all you need is a
deep-cleaning solution for whiteheads and blackheads, then
this may the answer for you. The exfoliation effect can help
fight clogged pores, and the product is affordably priced
with 90 pads per bottle. The texture of the pads also means
that the exfoliation benefits will be stronger here than
with typical liquid cleansers that include salicylic acid.
Just be sure that your skin can take a little punishment, as
despite claims to the contrary, regular use of Oxy Pads can
definitely dry out your skin.

Compared to most
cleansers, Oxy Maximum Daily Cleansing Pads are strong. They
can strip away your protective layer of oil and leave even
your hands excessively dry, so while they may seem like a
convenient portable solution, some may find them too
irritating unless you follow with a moisturizer. I used Oxy
Pads myself for several months, and while I noticed plenty
of dirt that my cleansers missed, the actual effect on my
acne was minimal. Simply put, most acne is not caused by
surface dirt and bacteria, so if you suffer from
deep-forming pustules or cysts, don't expect a solution like
this to have much of an impact. Oxy Pads are better used as
a supplement to your other products, rather than a
stand-alone acne remedy.
