Overall a good product for a budget and after workouts.

By 

from West Virginia

Comments about Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Pads:

I love these little containers of face wipes. They contain the same ingredients as facewash, except in a convenient cup and pad formula. The pads don't need to be washed or rinse off after application so they're quick and easy to use anytime you feel like you need a clean up.

The container says you can use these 3 times a day but I rarely use them more than once. Occasionally twice if it's been a hard day. They do tend to try me out in the cheeks and chin area so I use them sparingly and when I feel like I need them most such as after a workout or a good sweaty day.

The formula does a pretty good job of helping the acne on my chin and forehead. I use them when I feel stressed too and they seem to keep my stress breakouts at bay. The round can fits perfect in a cup holder in your car. They don't go great in purses but sometimes I put a few in a sandwhich bag. They do go well in lockers, gym bags, and gym lockers. They take out any sweat and makeup that is running on my face and clear my pores very well. They seem to have a firmness to the pads like little grippers that scrub my face and pull out dirt even after I've just washed my face.

Overall I like them best for after workouts so I don't have to run and wash my face. They dry a little but not too much unless you use them excessively. The smell isn't too bad and these are nice for guys or girls.

Effectiveness
The go to work immediately cleaning and clearing my face.

Ease of Application
They come in a container and are convenient.

Convenience
It's so easy that all you do is open, take one, reseal and go.

Side Effects
The only real side effect for me is that when I use them a couple times a day they dry my skin a bit too much.

Immediacy
As far as cleaning dirt, they are quite effective but they take a day or two to really notice any significant difference in acne and stress control.

great over 2 weeks time

Comments about Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Pads:

I would not say it work rapid in 4 hours like the description says. But you can definitely feel a difference in the way your skins feels. It feels cleaner and can feel the acne bacteria being killed away. It take about two weels for this product to really kick in.

Don't use its very harsh on the face

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Pads:

I bought these Clearasil ultra rapid action pads a while back and I wasn't pleased. These pads are circles shaped and there white they smell a bit strong. I used to have acne breakouts and I tried using these and it made me skin feel so much worse. It literally burns your face it made my face turn red it looked inflammed. My face was irritated after it made my acne worse. My skin looked irritated I didn't even want to put anything on my face because I was scared it would get worse. I didn't wear makeup for a couple of days. I wasn't happy at all I stopped using them because of what it did to my face don't use if your face is very sensitive. It does dry our your face my forehead was peeling and it became so itchy. My sister used this product too and her face was red and burning too. The chemicals in this product are too harsh for the face. The face is important because its what everybody sees. It was just a huge mess I wasn't pleased with this product. I wouldn't recommend this product to anybody.

Clearer Skin

By 

from USA

Comments about Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Pads:

These are awesome!!! I use one in the morning and have noticed a dramatic difference in the appearance, softness, and breakout areas. These will make your eyes water for a few seconds, but then it goes away. The smell is not at all bad, but it does have a chemical undertone to it. My forehead is oily, and these have helped wonderfully. Less breakout frequency, and the oiliness has vanished into thin air. The price isn't good nor bad. I've tried different store brands, but always come back to the "name" brand. My only complaint is how it makes my skin burn, I mean it burns every time I use this product, and also turns red, It's like a Roman Candle. Aside from this I would recommend to anybody with a frequent breakout problem. Maybe not so much for the sensitive skin type as myself, But definitely for oily skin, mixture, or even dry. I would, however suggest buying a good oil-free moisturizer- maybe even from Clearasil, because this just zaps the moisture out.

I Should Have Bought Sooner!

By 

from Maryland Heights, MO

Comments about Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Pads:

I used Clearasil back in high school, and now in mid 30's, I'm using again.

Effectiveness
I had started having break outs and tried other products - more "adult" targeted products and nothing was working. I remembered that in high school I used these type of pads and decided it was worth a try. I am happy!

Ease of Application
These pads are super easy to use. There's no mess, and my skin just feels so much cleaner than washing alone can ever do.

Convenience
I take the can with me when I travel, they are quick and easy to use.

Side Effects
I'm not having any side effects.

Immediacy
I don't think they work immediately, more of a prevention tool. I do feel like they helped clear up existing pimples, but it took a few days - but I'm bad about just leaving them alone to heal. I think they work great on preventing new blemishes.

Work fast..

By 

from Naugatuck, CT

Comments about Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Pads:

I used to use Noxema products all the time but it seems at 40 I am having a acne problem.  I thought I better try something stronger and the ProActiv products took too long to use. There were too many steps involved and I just couldn't commit to the time and effort required.  I went to the drugstore and looked at several products when I saw the Clearasil pads and it said it begins to help in 4 hours.  So I figured it would only take a minute to use twice a day and I could handle that.  I was afraid it would dry my skin out to much.  I have combination skin or at least thats what I was told, lol.  I noticed my skin felt very clean and the next morning my face actually looked clearer.  But most of all using it everyday really helped prevent more acne from developing.  I use them only every night now and they have helped alot.  I wash my face in shower in the am and pads after I remove make up at night.  I still occasionally break out and go back to two times a day as needed.  Overall I think it's a good product.

Overpowering these pads are i would not recomend

By 

from Puyallup, WA

Comments about Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Pads:

these pads say maximum on the container they are in but its really too much, theres something in them that breaks out the skin or irirates it so it turns red and itches and burns. The buring is the worst. The pads make your face burn and after your face gets red you try to wash with water whatever was on the pads but it still hurts. I dont like these that much but i think i overused them meaning i kept them on my skin too long or something or maybe i have sensitive skin. I do not think that i would recomend these to anyone because they say maximum  on them and they for me were really too intense and caussed my face a lot of pain. I like the smell of them because it smelled like a cleaner like it was cleaning my face really well when i put the pad on my skin but i could only keep them on my skin for like half a second because they are so potent. After a while if theres not very many pads in the container, they dry out even when the lids closed. So its kind of a bad value unless you use them all at once while they are still wet.
