  • Helps prevent new acne pimples from forming

Suggested Use

  • Cleanse the skin thoroughly before applying medication
  • Use the pad to wipe the entire effected area one to three times daily
  • Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor
  • If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day
  • Do not leave pad on skin for an extended period of time
  • Keep away from eyes, lips and other mucous membranes


For external use only.

Allergy alert: do not use this product if you have a known allergy to salicylic acid.

When using this product using other topical acne medications at the same time or immediately following use of this product may increase dryness or irritation of the skin. If this occurs, only one medication should be used unless directed by a doctor.

Did nothing except dry out my skin

Posted by 5081748232170514952 on Apr 24, 2017 | Verified Purchase

I was hoping this would calm my cystic acne breakouts on my face during that time of the month but it hasn't made any difference. I like the smell (kind of menthol like?), but it really dries out my skin, and seeing as it's made no difference after trying it for 2 months I just don't think it's worth it. Weirdly enough though I've started using them on my back and they seem to be making a slight difference there (still get dry patches from it though)

Excellent BHA on the stronger spectrum

Posted by 4948143649849165704 on Apr 19, 2017 | Verified Purchase

I use BHA combined with AHA to keep the closed comedones at bay, and I was a fan of cosrx BHA until they discontinued it in South Korea due to its "high concentration" (??). I decided to try the Stridex red box, and so far it's been great. Unlike their cosrx counterpart, I can't apply it daily as it would dry my skin, but applied every other night is right what's needed to keep it clear. I also figured cutting the little pads with a scissor and only using half is enough :)

Effective acne cure

Posted by 4853840098085688483 on Apr 11, 2017 | Verified Purchase

I have sensitive and acne prone skin. My skin tends to break out occasionally and this always helps it clear up. It doesn't burn my skin like many other pimple medication. I use this together with Margarite Cosmetics zinc cream. Works for me.
