New Stridex Deep Pore combines the power of activated charcoal with the proven cleaning and acne-fighting strength of Stridex Medicated Pads. The 2-in-1 pack offers a convenient and comprehensive regimen for clearer skin. The concentrated, super absorbent pre-treatment gel is packed with activated charcoal which acts like a booster to draw out dirt and oil. It’s so absorbent that each jar contains enough charcoal to cover over half of one football field end zone or almost 7 NBA courts! The Maximum Strength Pads contain 2% salicylic acid and wipe away the charcoal gel, impurities extracted from the pores, and anything your face wash missed…leaving medication behind to clear up existing pimples and prevent future breakouts. The gel formula spreads on smoothly and is easily removed with Stridex Pads. The pads are also completely alcohol-free to prevent drying and irritation of the skin.
