I used to use these a lot in high school and even as a young adult. They are convenient and I felt like I was cleaning my face if I was too lazy to wash it in the sink. But honestly the ingredients in this are SO harsh and way too strong for any kind of skin, healthy or acne prone. The scrubbing and drying chemicals in these cause skin to get even more oily than before to compensate for the natural oils they scraped off. I would not recommend using these for anything other than white heads once a week TOPS. My skin personally got much worse, it got red and shiney and my breakouts got worse. But when I used them in high school I figured it was my hormones and not these pads. I'm not a fan personally. They seem to work better for men which is random and weird to say but a lot of guys I know use them and don't have as much of a reaction as women I know.
