Brand Overview

Stridex At-A-Glance

Stridex has long been a staple of the anti-acne section of drugstore skincare aisles, offering a small but well-known range of products designed to treat and prevent breakouts. The star ingredient in most of its offerings is salicylic acid, the gold standard when it comes to treating blemishes, and all its products are alcohol-free. Unfortunately most contain other ingredients (such as menthol and fragrance) that could lead to skin irritation, which can worsen breakouts.
