Oily, acne-prone skin isn’t a problem only for adolescents and teens, adults have it too. Acne outbreaks and blemishes can be particularly challenging for middle-aged adults who are also dealing with aging skin at the same time. Topix has formulated a line of cleansing and treatment products with glycolic acid and salicylic acid that effectively targets acne-prone skin while improving skin texture and firmness. Salicylic acid has the ability to penetrate pores and slough off the dead skin cells inside that contribute to acne outbreaks. Its pore-cleansing will give you clearer skin with fewer blemishes. Glycolic acid works more superficially to remove dead skin cells on the surface of the skin that cause it to look dull. At the same time, glycolic acid boosts the production of collage to increase skin firmness and soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The Topix Gly Sal line targets oily, acne-prone skin and offers anti-aging, skin-clarifying benefits as well.

Excellent for daily cleansing of oily skin
-3/23/2010 7:47:15 AM
I have been using these pads twice daily for over a year now -- I got them from my dermatologist originally because I have oily, breakout-prone skin although I'm 41. I have used them in the 5%, 10% and 15% strengths. I found 15% to be too harsh for my skin.
Sometimes I alternate them with the Citrix antioxidant pads, which are less strong.
I love the fact that these are pads -- I use them for daily cleansing and like the convenience factor -- no water or washcloth required, and they're great for travel. If I am going somewhere for a few days and don't want to take the whole container, I just put a few pads in a little ziploc bag and they stay moist for days.
If you haven't used these pads before, I'd probably start out with the 5/2 pads once a day, then work your way up to this strength.
Excellent choice for adult chronic acne

Excellent price for an an excellent product. I am in my late 30s and have very oily skin/cystic acne. For the price and results, I highly recommend this product! It doesn't have a strong fragrance and I experienced little irritation when I first used it.

I purchased this at the doctors office and it was a waste of money for me. I think the combo of salicylic acid and glycolic acid or the acetone was not for my skin type. Better suited for someone with a more resistant skin type.

A little of this product goes along way. It leaves the skin clean without being tight. Rinses well. I am very happy with this product after using MD Forte III for years. This product is a great change. And it is a great price!

What a great product! I am 37 and have very oily and acne-prone skin. I have (had) very large pores, acne scarring, and very rough skin, especially on my forehead. I've combined this product with MD Formulations Vit-A-Plus Skin Clearing Complex salicylic/glycolic lotion and the results have been dramatic. The smoothing effect was almost instantaneous and it continues to improve my skin daily- smaller pores, smoother skin, less redness, fewer breakouts. I started with the 5-2 concentration and was so impressed I bought the 10-2 when those were gone. I experienced a little redness when I upped the strength, but my skin adjusted quickly.

I absolutely swear by these glycolic pads!! I've used it for years and have noticed a significant improvement in my skin ever since I started. I am a dermatology resident and recommend this to all my family, friends, and patients :)

If you have sensitive skin this may not be good for you. My skin got very red and burned for a few minutes after using. But it does make it feel ultra clean.
want perfect skin?

I started using this a year ago & totally cleared up my skin. I don't wash my face with anything in the shower, and when i get out, I rub 1 pad over my face and it feels so clean. I don't need a moisturizer (which makes me break out) or anything else. My skin is PERFECT!!

I love it! I specialize in skin care and this works like nothing else....and I've tried it all. My skin is clear, smooth and less oily.
