Once And For All, This Is My Clear Skin Secret Weapon

It’s a little bit ironic that as I’m writing this article, I have a massive pimple on my cheek. My skin is normally pretty clear and blemish free, but like most women I’m not immune to the occasional breakout. That being said, OXY’s Daily Defense Cleansing Pads are the one product that keeps my skin clear 90% of the time.

Given how much I’ve revealed about myself and my beauty routine in the seven years that I’ve worked at Shefinds, I was appalled when I realized I never wrote about OXY. Over the last fifteen or so years, this is the one product that has remained constant in my life. I feel like I’ve been using OXY since I was a teen and I’m in my thirties now. Honestly, it’s the one product that I credit for keeping my skin in the condition that it’s in.

Of course I drink water and eat a healthy, balanced diet, but it’s these cleansing pads that really and truly do the hard work of keeping my face blemish free. It’s worth noting that these wipes probably aren’t for everyone. I don’t have dry or sensitive skin, so the salicylic acid in these wipes isn’t too harsh for me. In fact, these cleansing pads are just what my face needs after a day running around in the thick air of NYC. The wipes not only cleanse my face and my pores, but they really do keep my skin from breaking out when I use them regularly.

I’ll add that these aren’t the cheapest facial cleansing pads you’ll find in the store, but they are arguably the most effective. I’ve tried others in an attempt to save money, and promptly went straight back to OXY because no other brand works as well.

I’m such a diehard for these pads that my daughter is now hooked too. She’s just beginning to experience minor breakouts in her T-zone, but cleansing her face with these OXY wipes every night zaps them away in no time.

If there’s one skincare product I really and truly can’t live without, this is it.
