This review is from: Neutrogena Wave Deep Clean Gentle Exfoliating Pads, 30 Count (Pack of 3) (Health and Beauty)
While searching for replacement pads for the discontinued Clean & Clear Blackhead Eraser Refill Pack 20 pads I stumbled on these Foaming Exfoliating Pads. Thank Goodness for Mr. Lebryk's review and suggestions for alternating with the Neutrogena Wave Deep Clean Foaming Pad Refills, 30 Count to avoid over drying and irritation. The Wave Refills fit the Blackhead Eraser PERFECTLY. The Exfoliating pads are excellent substitutes for the Clean and Clear Blackhead Eraser refills due to the Salicylic Acid.

We found it best to use them ONCE A DAY - AT NIGHT - EVERY OTHER DAY until your skin adjusts to the Salicylic Acid and friction/exfoliation. THEN EVERY NIGHT if you need it. We never made it to two times a day without irritation. This is the same process we went through initially with the Blackhead Eraser Kit. The kids initially went overboard using the ERASER at first. Using it two times a day for an unknown amount of time and pressure etc caused "road rash". A light hand, less frequent use, less scrub time, more thorough rinsing AND a good moisturizer had their skin soft, glowing and healthy. Taking the time to figure it out is worth the effort.

It's the right medicated foam getting into the pores long enough to kill the acne bacteria is what works. THEN my acne-faced kids think MORE IS BETTER, like sanding the pimples off their faces and wind up looking like "burnt pizza face" We learned the hard way, to take the time to LEARN HOW to take better care of ourselves compared to paying the Dermatologist for magic bullets that don't necessarily work either or have major side effects.

Health care plans are minimally covering prescription acne care IF covering at all. The cost for those infomercial treatments delivered to your door isn't cheap either. So short of "grin and bear it until you outgrow it" we've had to research, trial-and-error to find what really works for us. So many tried and true Neutrogena and Clean & Clear items are being discontinued + are so much more expensive when found :( Finding Pad Refill bundle here at Amazon for a decent price, twenty bucks, AND Mr. Lebryk's comments were a WIN...woo-hoo they do work well for us!

Well enough I bought both aNeutrogena WAVE SONIC - 1 ct. AND Neutrogena Wave Facial System as backups for the BlackHead Eraser scrubber and my discountinued Neutrogena Restoratives Renewal scrubber. The Wave Refill Pads fit it too, just a comparable treatment formula IS NOT AVAILABLE :(

***NOTE*** Save the Velcro attachment heads, you only get one per box of refills! If Velcro gets clogged with fibers, wait until attachment is thoroughly dry then press tape on the Velcro a few times to remove the unwanted fibers. If you have kids using these the attachment heads get lost AND are not sold separately :(
