I have had oily skin my whole life and always have problems with my pores. I bought these hoping that they would help with my acne and pore problem. They are really strong and I did not have a good reaction to them. They dried out my skin really bad, even with using moisturizer. It got to the point that my skin would burn after using them. I had to stop using them and did not get much results. I would not recommend these unless you have extremely oily skin. Also, make sure you use moisturizer with them. Effectiveness I did not find these to be effective. They dried out my skin too bad to ever see results from them. I had to quit using them. Ease of Application They are extremely easy to use. You just wipe them over your face and throw them away. Convenience The fact that they are just a wipe on pad makes them very convenient to use. Side Effects This is where i had the biggest problem. They dried out my skin really bad. It burned to use them. Immediacy I did not see results due to them drying out my skin and having to stop using them.
