Stridex Maximum Pads Vs. Paula's Choice 2% Bha Products?

5 posts in this topic

Hello, I have been looking for a salicylic acid-based exfoliator for my face. I have heard great things about both Stridex Maximum Pads and Paula's Choice BHA products. Does anyone here have experience with either product, and if so, could you tell me about your experience? I have normal to oily skin. Price isn't an issue. Thanks!

I occasionally use the Stridex, but the sensitive skin pads, I do like them when I'm in a rush.

What I do before I shower is lather up with a cheap generic acne wash with 2% sal acid (nuetrogena generic, the orange stuff in the pump bottle)...let that sit on your face/neck/whatever for 5 min or so, then hop in the shower....cheap and you clean the pores out for your next step when you get out of the shower.
