AcneWORX Gentle Acne Treatment Cream is a clinically proven acne treatment solution that contains 2% salicylic acid (SA), an effective medicine that can reduce or eliminate your acne pimples and prevent new ones from forming. SA helps break the acne cycle by dissolving the oil, dirt and dead skin that clogs pores and makes pimples form.
- Penetrates pores to eliminate most acne blemishes
- Alcohol-free Novasome® delivery system gently moisturizes your skin
- Delivers maximum strength acne medication in a gentle water-based formula
- Can be used with other acne medications
Many acne skincare products contain harsh organic solvents like alcohol or acetone but AcneWORX is delivered in a water-based and lipid-rich cream. This means less irritation on your skin! AcneWORX Gentle Acne Treatment Cream can be used not only as a spot treatment for existing acne pimples but also as a daily medication for your acne “trouble zones” to keep pores clear and fight emerging pimples when you feel them forming.
So, this is an effective yet gentle option when you need to go beyond spot treating! It’s recommended to be used on the entire affected area with a thin layer once or twice a day. With 2% salicylic acid as the active ingredient, the lightweight creamy formula dries clear so it can easily be used under your moisturizer or makeup. It reduces the redness significantly and helps shrivel up the size and severity of pimples. The best part is that it doesn’t leave my skin dry, flaky or irritated even when I use it twice or thrice a day to shrink a pesky pimple faster! If you have very dry skin and sensitive skin, it’s always a good idea to follow up with a good moisturizer as needed.
AcneWORX Micro Exfoliating Pads
Gently exfoliates and provides a deep clarifying boost for acne-prone skin.
Complexion-enhancing exfoliating pads with the gold standard 10% glycolic acid and 2% salicylic acid plus over a dozen skin-enhancing naturals to ensure optimal effects. This formulation includes:
- Aloe, cucumber and chamomile help soothe and calm skin
- Glycerin and sugar cane improve skin hydration and draw moisture to the skin
- Yucca root extract helps calm skin and enhance tolerability
The AcneWORX Micro Exfoliating Pads tap the deep pore-cleansing power of salicylic acid, the soothing touch of aloe & chamomile and the resurfacing activity of glycolic acid to smooth and buff away dead skin cells while improving skin firmness.
Suggested Usage: Apply to clean, dry face using gentle pressure. Use 2-4x a week at night. Wipe off or leave on overnight for greater effect.
I am not new to exfoliating formulas but these individual pads are so quick & convenient and give me instantly smoother, soft & radiant skin! I loved the results from the very first use and the pads are very well saturated so just one is good enough for my whole face and neck. They feel soft on the skin and exfoliate gently without over-drying.
I have been using these pads twice or thrice a week and found them to be gentle enough for my dry, sensitive skin – no redness, irritation or any bothersome effects. If you have very sensitive skin, start slowly and adjust usage as needed. And of course, don’t forget your daily dose of sunscreen every morning, especially when using an exfoliating acids based product!
When I use these at night, my skin is noticeably even and smoother with a healthy glow in the morning andf they also help keep my acne breakouts in check by preventing clogged pores. These have been a great addition to my acne skincare routine! At $40 (for 50 treatment pads), it may seem a bit pricey, but that’s almost six months worth of twice-a-week application…totally worth the little investment to keep those annoying zits away!
