Salicylic acid, Glycolic acid and Allantoin.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Pull out a pad. Gently wipe the face. Discard the pad after single use. For pimples and oily skin.
WHAT THE BRAND CLAIMS
ACMED clarifying pads is a specially formulated 100% soap free gentle cleanser which cleanses excess sebum (oil), dirt and dead cells.
ACMED clarifying ensures anti-bacterial action against bacteria common to pimple prone skin
The pads come inside a plastic jar with a screw-on cap. This is really convenient to carry around than wet wipes since they will not get dried easily and there is no chance of the jar opening by itself even if I throw it carelessly into my bag. Moreover the jar can be used for storing some other products once I run out of the pads.
I have combination – oily skin. I feel the need to clean my face at least 2-3 times a day even if I don’t wear makeup since I live in a hot and humid place.
In the below picture, I have wiped my face just after cleansing (without any makeup) with one of these pads and you can see how it managed to pull dirt from bare skin.
The below picture shows the swatches of some products on my arm
From left –
1. Bourjois Contour Clubbing Waterproof Pencil
2. MAC Lipstick – Twig
3. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Black Bean
In the “AFTER” picture, I have swiped the clarifying pad once over my hand.
You can see that except the Bourjois Waterproof Eyeliner, everything got erased. One more swipe, the waterproof liner was also gone!
I really like this product since it is very useful to generally cleanse the face and remove makeup too.
THE ‘YAY’ FACTORS
1. Hygienic & non-drying way of storing cleansing wipes
2. Effectively cleanses
3. One pad is enough for cleaning face and neck at one time
4. Removes makeup well
5. Doesn’t cause any irritation or breakouts
6. Doesn’t dry the skin or make the skin oily after use
7. Pocket friendly
THE ‘NAY’ FACTORS
2. Irritates the eyes
3. Strong fragrance which reminds me of hospital
I would like to give it a rating of 4/5 and would like to purchase it again unless I get something of the same kind which does not irritate the eyes and also with better fragrance.

HnB Ed* – Nicely reviewed Nisha. I love such multi-tasking products. Wish the brand comes up with one for normal-dry skin too.
