OXY Emergency Acne Vanishing Treatment Wipes

I recently was offered to review a new product from OXY called the OXY Emergency Wipes. 

This is the first medicated wipe on the market that will allow you to deal with your acne problem.   It is filled with an ingredient known as Benzoyl Peroxide which has been clinically proven to kill acne bacteria on contact and help heal the acne blemishes rapidly.

So I asked my son to product test the wipes for me.   His acne is mainly located on his nose.    The wipes will help to clear the face of pimples by removing dirt, oil, and dead skin and kill bacteria.  It will also allow your skin to breathe more easily.   Essentially, it will relieve the redness and will try to reduce the size of pimples when you have some.    It also controls the oil around the areas that are more subjects to acne in order to help you fight possible breakouts through the day. 

The packaging is interesting making an easy-to-use on-the-go package.  It’s small enough that it can be inserted in a backpack or a purse without worrying about the added weight.    A pack contains 30 wipes which is the perfect quantity for a month-long supply.   

Using the wipes is easy as saying 1-2-3.   First you will need to wash you hands and then use the wipe in order to cleanse the area affected with acne.  Allow to dry.   To not rinse when you are done.  You can apply twice daily if needed (keep in mind you won’t have as many wipes though).

From what I can see, my son’s nose is a bit better.  But he has been using sporadically over the past week or so.   I will request that he continues to use it for the remainder of the package.

The product is available in the acne section at major drug stores and mass & grocery retailers for the price of 7.99$.

  1. right now my son is entering his teens and just starting to deal with acne. So far he is not having too much trouble. I on the other hand still get the odd flare up. I use a nuxe scrub for myself and love it but won't be able to afford it again lol. OR afford it for the teenager, so looking for options.

  2. I suffer from acne in my household and I use an OXY cleanser and follow-up with a benzoyl peroxide based all-over treatment gel.

  3. After leaving my teenage years I didn't think I'd have to deal with it ever again. Boy was I wrong. As soon as I hit 30, my acne came back again with a vengeance. Currently I use a daily face wash in my showers and it seems to help.

  4. We use pure goats milk soap which is very gentle on our skin...that's about it. Both my youngest daughter and I suffer from acne!

  5. I personally don't have acne (thankfully since I'm almost 40 lol) but my 16 and 19 year old son's do. I have them wash their face frequently, and they have been using oxy medicated pads for several years. Would love to win this for them, thanks for the chance.

  6. i don't have a lot of acne but unfotunately my teen son does, he uses the oxy facewash.

  7. My teenager son is starting to get acne,and he have been using the OXY pads,,I would love to be ale to try these new OXY products out.

  8. I try to keep acne at bay by simply not using any soap on my face. It does help but doesn't do a complete job.
