Sensitive Skin Triple Action Pads are advertised as being alcohol-free, and that’s great. However, although these pads do not contain alcohol, they are still terrible for sensitive skin because they contain menthol and an essentially ineffective amount of salicylic acid.

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.
